A leak needs to be inspected carefully. Any liquid you see in or around your heating or AC units shouldn’t be ignored. It may be water or refrigerant, it could be condensation from normal use, or it could be a problem with the system. If this is an issue you are facing and you are in Colleyville, TX, AC repair and heating repair should be taken care of by a local AC repair company, like Comfort Experts. Here are a few things
Your air conditioning unit should never be low on refrigerant. It is a closed system, which means the refrigerant is passed through the system constantly and never runs down or becomes ‘used up’. If your refrigerant is low – either your air conditioner wasn’t set up properly or you have a leak.
If you know your air conditioner had sufficient refrigerant when you’ve used it previously, then you most likely have a leak. You should never attempt to replace or clean up and dispose of refrigerant yourself. The refrigerant used in air conditioning systems is a pollutant and should be handled by a qualified AC repair technician.
If your AC and heating repair tech simply tops up your refrigerant and a leak is the problem, then it will leak again. He or she needs to thoroughly inspect the system to identify the leak, which is what we will do when you call us. A quality AC repair tech will check multiple areas of your unit to identify the source of the leak or other issue.
There are a number of reasons why water could be coming from your air conditioning unit. Many can be prevented during a regular service, but if you haven’t had your system serviced recently, there are number of things that could be causing the leak.
If you have used your air conditioning system with no problems and suddenly find liquid that is pooling near the unit, don’t ignore it! Even if it is just water, it could be a symptom of a bigger problem. You can take steps to prevent the most common problems by servicing your air conditioning annually.
Joel is who we are asking for all the time now
Did good work and very polite. Did not take long
Blake did a thorough job with our annual service for our system. He explained everything in a friendly, professional manner.
Had a great experience. Did the tune up on units and felt very at ease. He was efficient and friendly.
Brian was polite, efficient, and very knowledgeable. Very friendly and answered all our questions. Neat work and cleaned up areas. We love this company and have been working with them since they put in our Heat Pump.
A Goodman rectifier is less than $5 bucks on Amazon I paid Hobson over $200. Hobson has done this more than once. Shame on you. Technician was fine
I contracted with Hobson Electric to have a full home generator installed early this summer. We have struggled with multiple supply chain/product availability/ Covid related issues, but I have always been impressed with any of their team members that supported us during this timeframe, and that is doubled for members of the Hobson family such as Brian who personally executed the generator installation , electrical hookup, and our connection to wifi.
Fast quality service

Upon arrival for tune up on 13 year old Rheem, 5 year old Goodman and 8 year old Goodman gas furnace systems they were on. 13 year old and 5 year old systems cooling. Downstairs main area system not cooling. Inspected outdoor units. All capacitors within tolerance. Clean all units. 13 and 8 year old systems fans pulling extremely high amps. 5 year old systems fans within specifications but slightly high. 13 year old system compressor amp draw high. 8 and 5 year old system compressor amp draw within unit specifications. 13 and 5 year old system refrigerant pressure good. 8 year old system has almost no refrigerant in system. Inspected indoor units. All blower have slight dust buildup. All drain lines clear. All furnaces ignited properly. All indoor coils clean. Informed customer of issue with system and possible cost of repairs. Due to cost of repairs recommended speaking with engineer. Customer agreed and scheduled engineer for Monday March 27th 10-13.
