Striking a successful balance between energy and efficiency and comfort can be tricky terrain to navigate. One of the best ways in which to ensure that you are able to successfully cool your home without paying too much in order to do so is to use a zone control system. By installing electronic dampers into your air ducts, and using individual thermostats in different temperature zones throughout your home in order to regulate their operation via a central control panel, you can actually cool different areas of your home independently of one another. Of course, given the fact that such mechanized systems are always susceptible to operational problems, you may find your self in need of zone AC repair in Houston at some point. When you do, make sure that you schedule your zone AC repair services with the pros at Expert Air. We will make sure that your zone controlled AC system is back in optimal working condition as soon as possible.

There are a few different problems that you may encounter with your zone control AC system. Each may have multiple potential causes, which is why it is so important that a professional assesses your system. One sign that your system is in need of repair, of course, is the development of hot spots throughout your home. Assuming that your system was installed properly and designed well, you should not have trouble maintaining comfortably cool temperatures in any zone of your home under the service of your AC system. It could be that a damper in the system is not functioning properly, or that the thermostat in the affected area is malfunctioning. Whatever the root of the problem may be, the only way to ensure that it is resolved completely is to schedule professional repairs.

Higher than normal cooling costs are another sign that you may need to have your zoned AC system repaired. While you can expect to pay more to cool your home when the heat of summer is at its zenith, you use your AC enough to have a general notion of how much it costs to keep yourself and your family comfortable. If you have made no changes to your AC usage habits, it could be that your zone control system is diverting cool air to areas where it is not needed, or that another problem has developed.

Whatever the issue, you can count on Expert Air to diagnose it precisely and to correct it completely. Call today for quality zone AC repair in Houston.

There is nothing worse than running your AC throughout the day when the hottest weather of the year is underway, only to find that your AC is just not keeping up with your cooling needs. There are a number of different reasons as to why your air conditioner may be underperforming, the majority of which will require professional attention in some fashion. If you run into problems with your air conditioner, just give Expert Air a call. The summers around here are far too hot and far too long to take any chances with the performance of your AC. Schedule your air conditioning services in Houston, TX with us to get the most out of your home cooling system.

First of all, if you find that your air conditioner is underperforming, try to rule out any obvious cases of user error before contacting a trained professional. Much as we love to help our customers, we’re guessing that you don’t want to pay us to come out to your home and switch your thermostat from its heating to its cooling mode, nor do you need our technicians to pull furniture away from the walls so that your vents are not blocked. Also, double check to ensure that your outdoor AC unit is not surrounded by debris of any type. Many times, poor airflow due to such circumstances is the source of the problem.

Once you have ruled any of those obvious causes out, it is time to enlist our help. We will thoroughly assess your system to get to the root of the problem. It may be the case that your refrigerant is low, which in all likelihood means that there is a leak in the system. After all, refrigerant is not consumed in the way that a car consumes gas; it is recycled, and levels should not fluctuate.

Another common reason for an underperforming AC is a lack of maintenance. You really must have your system inspected and tuned up regularly if you hope for it to function at peak performance levels. Dirty electrical components, clogged air filters, and other issues that would otherwise be resolved with routine maintenance may be the cause of the problem.

If you have always found that your AC is not capable of satisfying your cooling demands, on the other hand, it may be the case that your system is just too small for your home. If this is the situation, then there is really no way in which to fine tune its performance to overcome the obstacle. It may be necessary to replace your system with an appropriately sized one.

Whatever the cause of your underperforming air conditioning system may be, trust Expert Air with any necessary air conditioning services in Houston, TX.
