Ice on Your AC Is a Bad Sign!

Monday, June 20th, 2022

Ice in your freezer is usually a good sign, especially if you’ve got an ice maker or a few sets of ice cube trays. They’re perfect for those summer drinks that keep you cool and comfortable. However, ice in other areas of your home is usually a bad sign, particularly when it comes to your air conditioner. Your AC isn’t a freezer, and it’s not supposed to cool things down to 32°F or below. If it does, then you’ll start to notice some pretty severe problems that we’ll get to down below.

We want to start this blog post by pointing you in the right direction. If you do have ice growing on your air conditioning system, we urge you to call our team for air conditioning repair in Helotes. Our team can get to work fixing the problem and ensuring that the cool air doesn’t get caught growing ice, and is instead sent through your air ducts where it belongs.

AC Neglect: A Tricky Situation

Monday, August 16th, 2021

Neglecting your air conditioner is never a good option. We know that nobody neglects their AC system on purpose, but it’s one of the most damaging things that can be done to an AC. We’d much rather be confronted with a malfunctioning air conditioner by a homeowner that’s confounded, than stumble upon a forgotten AC that’s really veering towards replacement much earlier than it should be.

Neglected systems, or systems that are ignored or forgotten about, tend to break down only in a few years. Well-maintained systems and units that are paid close attention can last upwards of 10-15 years in age because problems are promptly addressed.

This blog post is part PSA and part advice about how you can avoid neglecting your air conditioner, and what could happen if you do forget about your precious system. Don’t forget to schedule AC repair in Fair Oaks Ranch, TX if you encounter a problem!
