You might think this is a silly question. You live in Texas: of course you may need to have the help of a San Antonio, TX, HVAC contractor! Hot weather can arrive at any time during the year, it’s merely less frequent during the winter. If you have busted AC on a hot day, you’ll need to give a shout to our technicians, and they’ll be on the way to fix it.
But what we want to address in this post is the help an AC contractor can give you beyond those repair emergencies that can crop up. An air conditioning expert can help out with cooling and other upgrades and improvements to your HVAC system in fall and winter. Below we’ll go through a few ways you can put us to work for you during the end of the year.
Replace Your Air Conditioning System
We’ll start with the Big One—you may need to have a new AC installed after this last summer. This is a big choice, but if you have reasons to suspect your current air conditioner just went through its final summer, fall is an ideal time to schedule a replacement with us. You won’t be in a rush and you’ll find we have a more open calendar for appointments. Rather than wait for next spring, move now to put in a fresh air conditioner.
Maintain the AC (If You Forgot to in Spring)
We recommend all our clients schedule air conditioning maintenance during the spring each year. There is nothing better for an AC than this service: maintenance prolongs system life, increases efficiency, improves capacity, reduces repairs, avoids breakdowns, and protects the warranty. There is no expiration date during the year for maintenance, and with the regular heat in Texas, it’s worthwhile to have it done in fall if you missed it. The important thing is not to skip it for a year.
Upgrade the Thermostat
Do you have a manual thermostat that uses slides or a dial to adjust the temperature and has no read-out? Or a digital thermostat with no programmability? This might be the season to make a change to an advanced digital thermostat with Wi-Fi and smart capabilities. You must have professionals take care of choosing the new thermostat and installing it. A poorly matched thermostat and HVAC system can end up damaging the HVAC system—make sure you work with us.
Install a Ductless Unit for a Hard-to-Cool Spot
Is there one room in your house that never gets cool enough because of its position or other factors not in your control? You can cool that spot without having to resort to a window air conditioner (nobody wants that). We can install a ductless mini split for the space. You may think of ductless mini splits as whole-house cooling solutions for homes that don’t have ducts. But they also have smaller uses, such as point cooling. A ductless mini split installation for a single room means you don’t have to make any major changes to the rest of the HVAC system.
