Imagine for a moment your upcoming family visit with your parents that you’ve been planning since Christmas. The kids are bouncing off the walls, excited to see Grammy and Papa, and even the dog seems to sense the excitement in the air. The fridge is stocked full of breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. The lawn looks perfect thanks to the landscaper’s green thumb and the house is sparkling after the maid’s visit.
All is (relatively) peaceful and you’ve just poured yourself a glass of wine before they arrive. Then, you notice the air conditioning hum has stopped. Checking to see whose little fingers may have messed with the thermostat, you discover no one touched it. Pushing all combinations on the digital display, still you hear nothing like the sound of the HVAC system coming back to life. The doorbell rings and… they’re here!
When is a good time to have an air conditioning problem?
There isn’t one, is there?
Here at Howell Services, we hear these stories (and worse!) from local home and business owners needing immediate air conditioning repair in Sugar Land. When we send out one of our certified and thoroughly background checked technicians to perform air conditioning repair in Katy, TX, or elsewhere, they are able to assess and repair the problem quickly. But what if the repair could have been avoided altogether?
It’s indeed possible to eliminate the need for air conditioning repair in sugar land with an air conditioning inspection.
Yes, just like your car requires an annual tune-up, HVAC units are complex systems that require maintenance to confirm optimal performance and peak efficiency.
