Air Conditioning Specialist

When your home has an air conditioning breakdown in Katy, Texas you pick up the phone and call an Air Conditioning Company to get it fixed. Because I am the owner of an Air Conditioning company serving the Katy area, I know that it’s not always this simple. If it was there likely wouldn’t be any need for the AC services that I offer.

Many times the need of an Air Conditioning Specialist in Katy, Texas and some surrounding areas is sometimes caused by the people who you have called in the past or maybe a previous owner of the home you purchased. To help you understand this a little better you have to realize that air conditioning and heating for your home is a system that on a national average lasts about 15 years if it’s installed properly the problems should be few. Because your HVAC system lasts so long (typically) the problems tend to develop slowly, unless the AC problems are made worse by those servicing your HVAC equipment.

Many AC companies get into the AC business by becoming “cleaning” companies or “maintenance” companies. You see the ads don’t you? Get your AC tuned up, get your AC checked. This doesn’t mean this isn’t a legitimate service. It is, but only if the service is done right.

Most companies use Technicians and due to the financial crisis in 2008 many good HVAC Technicians left the HVAC service industry. So in many cases this leads to you getting “hoodwinked”. Spin the AC technician roulette wheel, let me see what you win ok?

Did you know that 55% of Air Conditioning companies fail due to incompetence? I did a video on that a year ago and I’m in the process of making a new video to show how these things can effect you. Subscribe to my You Tube Channel so you don’t miss this special AC presentation. It should open your eyes just a little.

The HVAC business is highly technical and requires a certain amount of aptitude to perform it, not to mention continual learning. I didn’t become an Air Conditioning Specialist over night and I don’t really consider myself all that special other than the fact that I know that I have solved very complicated air conditioning problems in the past. Problems so bad in fact that the home owner was being led to believe they needed to replace a HVAC system that was only 2 1/2 years old. How is that for technical aptitude?

Replacing AC systems can solve your problems and in some cases that is the better option, but does this mean every time you have an AC problem you will just replace the HVAC system? I bet you have more money than you know what to do with.

Remember, when replacing an AC system “the devil is in the details”. Every major HVAC manufacturer makes multiple models, most of them are junk. A salesman is paid to sell you this junk most of the time. A free estimate is code word for “please send me a salesman”. The other part is service after the sale and the ability to repair the AC system when it breaks. Sure, you could say that talk is cheap right? Well I can help you prove it to yourself. You probably found me via a Google search, so do another search about complaints of any major HVAC brand, list the brand name in the search. You will see that I’m right. This is what I do for a living after all, why should I apologize for the truth?

If you are reading this after the fact and got taken advantage of by getting what you thought was a good deal and now have nothing but air conditioning problems I can come up with a solution for you. I hear air conditioning nightmares all the time, if you are living one don’t make it worse. Find a licensed HVAC contractor that knows what they are doing. It’s not uncommon for me to see a dozen or so of these kinds of calls a year. I’d say it’s pretty important to have an HVAC contractor install your new AC system that knows how to fix them when they break. Wouldn’t you?

There is no manufacture warranty for: improper installation or AC equipment purchased over the internet. Please choose your licensed HVAC contractor wisely. Look at the whole picture, look at the details of the job before you make any hasty decision and do not choose based on price alone. Otherwise you may have to resort to spending time and more money trying to find a solution. I could be that solution.

Realize that my definition of “solution” is to solve the problem without causing additional problems, otherwise you’re not problem solving and the solution is not a true solution.

Thank you for visiting with me today. I hope your day is a comfortable one!
