What Can Cause AC Condenser Problems?

Monday, March 20th, 2017

ac-condenser-problem-causeWhile your air conditioner is something you use on a pretty regular basis—for the majority of the year given the climate we live in—it is still not something you likely think about a whole lot, unless something goes wrong with it. A very important component of your entire AC system is the outside unit—called the condenser unit.

While the inside portion of your AC system absorbs heat from your home’s air, the condenser unit is tasked with releasing that heat to the air outside. So without a functional condenser, the warm air from your home would have nowhere to go. When something goes wrong with this component, it’s important that you reach out to us for San Antonio, TX air conditioning repair services right away to avoid further damage and potentially a full system replacement.

What Happens When You Skip Your Air Conditioning Maintenance Appointment?

Monday, May 23rd, 2016

Weather may already be warming up in your community, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to schedule an air conditioning maintenance appointment if you haven’t done so already.

However, there could be hidden issues with your air conditioner that you won’t even notice until the demands you place on your air conditioner are greatest—in the middle of summer. Even the smallest layer of dirt or dust can build up and eventually negatively impact the efficiency and performance of your heating and cooling systems.

How to Prepare Your Air Conditioning System for Texas Summers

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

If you’ve lived through a summer before in Texas, you know that the temperatures can soar to brutal levels. An air conditioner is a necessity for making it through the season. Not only an air conditioner, but one in excellent operating condition, free from malfunctions and impending malfunctions.

How can you prepare your AC to handle the Texas heat waves? We have some tips to get you started with armoring up your cooling system for the days when the thermometer goes above 100°F. A well-cared for air conditioner should be capable of handling that, and all the other hot days you may encounter as well.

Start off your AC care with air conditioning maintenance in New Braunfels, TX from Cowboys Air Conditioning & Heating. Call us today to sign up.

Readying your air conditioner for the summer, Texas style

  • Schedule a maintenance session: We just mentioned this, but it’s important to stress that annual maintenance for an air conditioner is essential for it to operate well and reach its manufacturer’s estimated lifespan. A maintenance session takes care of many issues: it cleans the unit, checks for damage and repair needs, adjusts and calibrates the parts necessary to keep the system from draining extra power, and runs tests to make sure the AC operates at its best. If the maintenance technician finds malfunctions, he or she will help you schedule repairs. Speaking of which…
  • Have any necessary repairs done as soon as possible: It’s unwise to begin the summer season with an air conditioner that has a malfunction, even if the malfunction doesn’t seem to affect the system’s cooling performance. Repair needs will make the AC strain, which will make it more expensive to run and trigger further malfunctions. Repair now so you won’t have worse problems later—like an abrupt breakdown.
  • Clear the area around the outside cabinet: The outdoor condenser of your air conditioner needs to have a clear region around it for the proper release of heat. If shrubs, gravel, stones, fallen branches, and other debris are too near it, they can get pulled into the cabinet and cause damage to the components. Clear away all the “driftwood” that might have gathered there in winter.
  • Change the air filter—and keep changing it: The air filter in your air conditioner prevents dust and dirt from coming through the return vent and entering the indoor cabinet. If the filter becomes clogged, it will choke off the airflow to the furnace and make it work harder. Change out the filter for a clean one at the start of the season, and change it every month for the rest of the summer.
