It is beginning to look a lot like spring in Burleson, Texas. With temperatures already rising in to the 70s and even 80s, it is obvious that summer-like heat is quickly sneaking in. Early AC repair in cities that see extreme temperatures, such as Burleson, Texas, is important to assure air conditioning systems don’t shut down. The average temperature in Burleson, TX is 90 degrees and above for a third of the year. With that much heat, Burleson, TX AC repair is in high demand and of utmost importance.
During the hottest days of the summer, the temperatures in Burleson usually reach above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and can even reach 110 degrees. When these temperatures are seen, busy air conditioning systems begin to break down. These machines are working 24 hours a day fighting against the scorching heat. Without consistent Burleson, TX air conditioning maintenance and repair, the machines become bogged down against the demand of the work and the systems begin to break down.
Residents of Burleson, TX and surrounding areas are all experiencing these same temperatures each summer and are running their air conditioning machines at the same rate as their neighbors. This can mean that thousands of units are breaking down across the area at the same time. As a result, Burleson air conditioning repair companies get flooded with calls to repair units. Their schedules become full of repair appointments and it begins to get difficult for them to reach all of their customers in a timely fashion. As you can imagine, as more and more repairs are added to their list, it begins to take longer to reach customers that are calling with needs. It can end up requiring days upon days to repair all of the units, and customers have to wait longer and longer for companies to reach their unit.
If you have ever experienced this crisis during high heat months, you know that it can be a brutal and uncomfortable experience. Many residents go without sleep as the house reaches the 100s and it becomes impossible to cool down and find comfort. It is common for children, animals, and the elderly to become dehydrated, particularly in that type of heat. It becomes difficult to iron, cook, blow-dry your hair, or participate in any activity involving heat, as the heat of the air is already too much to bear. As you may now be realizing, procrastinating on AC repair or neglecting maintenance and repair altogether, can have some heavy consequences—consequences that are not worth experiencing when simple AC repairs in Burleson, TX can easily prevent such occurrences. It is much easier to have your air conditioning unit maintained in the early spring rather than waiting and risking your unit needing assistance at the same time as thousands of your neighbors.
Schedule an appointment today to have an experienced AC repair technician take a look at your AC unit and enjoy the peace of knowing that your AC unit can keep you cool without fail through the heat of the summer.
Summer is right around the corner. While the days may not yet be hot and unbearable, it helps to be prepared weeks or even months in advance. The last thing you want to do is have to worry about your air conditioning when it suddenly breaks down, especially when the temperature has hit an all-time high in your area.
If you’re uncertain about whether or not your air conditioning system is working, you may need a routine checkup or AC repair. Burleson, TX is one of many locations around Dallas that we at Comfort Experts proudly serve.
Before beginning with any air conditioning tests, ensure that the air conditioning system has been turned off and the appropriate circuit breaker has been disabled.
One of the easiest ways to improve the effectiveness of your air conditioning unit is to remove the air filters and clean them. Depending on how long it’s been since you last cleaned or installed your air filters, they may need to be replaced in order to get optimal airflow and cooling results during the summer.
When air filters are not cleaned, the air conditioner unit has to work much harder to get the same results. In other words, your AC unit will cost you more money each month during the summer. Instead you can clean or replace the filters for much cheaper.
The condenser coils on an air conditioning system (usually located outdoors) are the main components that convert air into the cool, desirable air in the home. When the system has been turned off, investigate how clean or dirty the condenser coils of the AC unit are. Over the winter, especially if the coils weren’t covered by a tarp or cover, they can collect dirt, leaves, and debris that can filter into or slow down the system.
If these coils are not cleaned, they greatly reduce the effectiveness of the air conditioning system during the summer or any other time it is used.
After you’ve cleaned the inside of the air conditioning unit, you will want to focus on the area immediately surrounding the air conditioner. Leaves, twigs and other miscellaneous debris should be cleared away as far as possible from the air conditioning intake vents. When debris is surrounding the air conditioning system, they can get stuck to the sides or pulled inside the machine during windy days.
The air conditioner’s coolant lines run from the air conditioning unit to the house. In order to maintain efficiency between the two locations, there should be insulation around the pipes. Over time the insulation can be frayed or fall off after extensive use. Make sure to replace any insulation on the coolant lines.
After you’ve completed all basic maintenance steps for your air conditioner, turn the circuit breaker and AC unit back on. Set the thermometer to the desired temperature and see if the system is blowing cool air again. Getting your air conditioning unit back up to speed for the summer does not usually take a lot of work, but some AC systems will require repair or maintenance to restore to optimal use.
When your AC breaks down you have one of two options, you could either opt for AC repair or replacing your unit outright. While AC repair may seem like the more financially prudent maneuver, replacing your AC can save you money in the long run in the following circumstances.
1. Your AC is older than 10 years – On average an AC unit lasts about 7-12 years depending on use, environment and maintenance levels. If your unit is much older, you shouldn’t sink more money into repairing a dying unit and should consider replacement.
2. It required R22 Freon – Because of the 2020 Freon Ban the coolant will become increasingly expensive as time moves on. While the use of the coolant isn’t illegal, you shouldn’t put more money fixing a unit that requires the banned coolant and replace it with an AC that doesn’t rely on R22 Freon.
3. The unit requires repair after repair – Our Burleson AC repair team will always be happy to come in and fix your unit, but you shouldn’t be needing AC repair every season. At some point the umpteenth repair visit is going to be more expensive than a new unit so make the switch.
