Have you been looking for The Woodlands TX AC Repairs? Then you’ve arrived at the right destination. Many people around this time of year are starting to run their AC units much more frequently due to the increasing temperatures. If you’re native to Texas or lived here for a while, you’re probably aware that it can get sweltering here. Running your AC much more often is fine, but there is one drawback: it can break down if not taken care of properly.
That’s why many AC units need repairs during the summers. And yes, some repairs can be done by yourself. You can even prevent breakdowns by taking preventative measures. But the best thing you can do for your AC unit is enlisting the help of an AC repair company. This step is essential to repairing a broken AC system and preventing a unit from breaking down.
There are hundreds of AC repair companies out there. But some of them aren’t the most trustworthy. That’s why we here at Houston Admiral have your back. We employ only the most certified and professional experts in the industry to make sure you get the quality service you deserve. What’s more, we’re a family-owned business.
About your AC Unit
AC units (short of air-conditioning) are just one part of an extensive system of units called the HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) in your home or building. These units all have their unique job, but in the end, they all work together to provide your space with both quality air and ideal temperatures. For them to work in harmony, they all need to be properly maintained and taken care of individually. We also do commercial repairs and installations as well as residential.
In order to maintain your AC unit in the best way possible, you need to know what kind of unit you have and what it consists of. There are three standard AC units: split units, ductless systems, and packaged AC systems. Split units have their parts both inside and outside.
Ductless systems are almost exactly like split units, but as their name suggests, do not have ducts. Packaged AC systems are stand-alone units that are only located outside. You might even have a unit that is completely unrelated to those listed. If that’s the case, Houston Admiral is the best place to call as our team of experts has a wide variety of knowledge on multiple types of AC units.
Repairing your AC unit
There are many reasons why your AC unit might need repair. Some of these might not be as severe as others and can be identified and fixed through a home DIY project. Some examples of these are:
- If your AC system makes a strange noise (such as a loud grinding sound), it might be out of lubricant. Weird noises are a clear indicator that something is wrong with your system. However, a slight humming from your AC unit is entirely normal. Double-check the system’s motors and gears and re-apply lubricant if necessary.
- Your system’s filters are dirty and clogged up. AC units will work much harder to try and blow air through filters that are full of buildup. The culprits for this are generally cheap filters. Cheap filters have trouble sustaining a large amount of dirt on them. They have to be replaced every few weeks to prevent your AC from working extra hard. We recommend purchasing high-quality filters. These filters will save you both time and money by reducing how often you change them.
- Ensure that your AC unit has plentiful refrigerant. Refrigerant is the product that cools that air blown into your home. If it is low, the air won’t be as cold as it used to. When you do this, also make sure to clean out the condenser coils. The condenser coils release hot air from the refrigerant into the atmosphere outside.
- Your AC unit might not be working (or working as intended) simply because something is missing or loose. Plug all cables in tightly and secure every screw.

Replacing your AC unit
In the event that you cannot identify the problem or the problem is unsolvable, your AC unit might need intensive
repair or even replacement. Sometimes it’s better to fully replace your AC unit rather than spend a fortune trying to fix it. This is especially true if your AC unit is old. An old AC unit can run you thousands of dollars on repairs. You’d spend less by simply just replacing it.
If you need expert advice on this decision, give Houston Admiral a call, and one of our technicians will help you out. We provide multiple brands of HVAC units, including those leading in the industry, such as RUUD® and Goodman®. Our technician’s expertise is limitless in the field, and they are prepared to answer any question you may have about your AC unit.
The age of your AC unit is something that needs to be thought about. As of January 2020, the most popular refrigerant, Freon, has been phased out of use. The removal of it in common practice came from the EPA finding out its negative impacts on the environment. Luckily, most systems now don’t use Freon. But if your AC unit is older than ten years and is still using Freon, it might need replacement.
