Repair Advices of AC
1-Identifying Air Conditioning Repairs in Houston, TX
2-More Troubleshooting with Houston Air Conditioning
Along with the beginning of hot weather, your air conditioning unit may suffer from tropical storm season where high winds can blow extraneous debris around and into your air condensing unit. When a tropical storm blows through the Gulf, it’s a good idea to inspect your home’s exterior, especially your roof, siding, yard, and your air conditioning unit. If something impedes the airflow of your air condensing unit, your air conditioning can go out. Catch the problem early, and you may be able to simply remove any impediments. Let it go, and you can be in for bigger problems.
3-The Cost of Houston Air Conditioning Repair
With the nature of the repair, so goes the cost. The simplest problems can be dealt with for $25 to $100 which may include little more than the fee for your Houston air conditioning contractor to come to your home and identify and fix the problem. While you may not be thrilled to discover all you needed was to replace a screw or filter, at least you won’t have to pay several hundred dollars to a grand to replace a major component of your system

Two questions for all. One, H\how do you start a new topic? each time I try I get the message you can’t post a new form topic until it has been reviewed. Second, I am trying to gather more information on Geothermal heating systems. Some have replied on other sites, but I still haven’t got a good understanding as to the pros and cons. Any help would be appreciated.

For the geothermal, this is a good place to start

The pros and cons very between the house, the properties of the ground around your house, the system and the installer.

For A/C and heat, the best way to keep a system working at its best performance – is to keep it cleaned and serviced. Preventive maintenance comes with a price, depending upon where you are, it can be a lot more but it is far better than major repairs.

Air conditioning is not something that anyone and everyone could repair or service. It needs some electrical knowledge and technical skills as well. It is not an equipment which you can simply figure out so easily from a guide that comes inside its box. If you are not fully confident of the technicality, then it is best to hire a professional handyman while you check only the exterior portion like clearing the debris and such.

Most of the issues with A/C are in the refrigerant and the regulation of it. The theory of it is straight forward, the tools can be expensive.

Some things about refrigeration systems that you may not be aware. If you puncture one of the lines (pipes) and it is running, these lines can carry pressurized refrigerant of up to 400 psi (hot summer day). When it comes out of a little hole, it can come out as hot gas that can burn, or liquid and freeze what it touches (all mixed with oil).

If it is an absorption system (some refrigerators and a few A/C systems), the gas (or liquid) could be ammonia, some are other refrigerants that are highly dangerous. I have even worked on alcohol (cryogenic) systems. Every one of them can be very dangerous if you don’t know what you are doing and have the correct tools, etc… Even breathing the escaping gas can be extremely dangerous.

There are somethings that are best left to the professionals. I had a Master’s License and Stationary Engineer’s License and as such, I was licensed to work on anything in the State of MD – A/C, chiller, or boiler, but since I don’t have the tools anymore, I call someone else to fix it. Even though I was trained for ammonia and other absorption systems, I did not have the tools to work on it, mostly because I didn’t want to. The stuff is dangerous to the point that if you have a leak and you breath it in (and smell it) your lungs are already blistered.
