Commercial and Residential Heating & AirConditioning Repair
Our clients are most concerned with achieving the optimum temperature no matter the time of day or season. Their second most dire concern is the amount of money they shell out monthly to maintain that temperature. Whether you prefer an indoor temperature of 72 degrees in the summer or 80 degrees in the winter, your HVAC system must operate at peak conditions for energy efficiency’s sake. Preventative maintenance and diligent repair is vital in this process. Without it, you will not be comfortable inside your home or place of work. Contact Austin Premier Heating and Air Conditioning for all your HVAC needs.
How to Know When Your A/C Is in Need of Repair
Being the youngest in a family of five, Tony was accustomed to have loved ones will in the gaps when he fell short. He lived on his own is the same home he grew up in. All his neighbors, former classmates and family members knew that Tony dealt with a myriad of mental health issues and would sometimes self medicate. Given his mind state, he was unable to recognize the tell tale signs of an A/C system in disrepair. The clanking, hissing and extreme difficulty to keep his home evenly cooled went right over his head.
Once a month, Tony’s older sister would drive from Dallas to Austin, Texas to check on her baby brother. Sometimes she would discover that the basement had flooded or the kitchen burned and blackened with soot. One summer, she discovered that Tony was near heat stroke and the A/C was inoperable. One winter she found him wrapped in layers of clothing, attempting to keep warm during record low temperatures. On both occasions, Austin Premier Heating and Air Conditioning was called for emergency repairs. We arrived the same day to remedy the situation. Twenty four-hour emergency repairs are available for commercial and residential clients.
Boiler vs. Furnace
We could hear the panic in her voice. Ernestine communicated that the furnace was broken and asked us to come right away, lest her baby bro freeze to death. We asked key questions to determine what type of tools to bring and what we were up against. It turned out that their family home was not outfitted with a furnace. They had a boiler. Once we arrived and were able to remedy the situation, we explained to the client that a boiler uses hot water to power its system. It is typically indicated by base board and radiator heating apparatus. A furnace uses warm air and has ducts and ventilation to distribute heat.
Austin Premier Heating and Air Conditioning recommends scheduling a complete check up at the end of each summer. You don’t want to be caught out there in the dead of winter. While our winters are pretty mild, spending three months in heavy sweats and socks is not ideal. Contact us for preventative maintenance. Not only will you enjoy your indoor environment more, but you will also save money and extend the lifespan of your HVAC system. Going forward, Ernestine scheduled an HVAC technician to arrive at August and May’s end to ensure that her brother was well taken care of.
