Welcome to the first posting of HVAC Home Talk DFW. Here at this blog you will find everything related to Dallas & Fort Worth Residential HVAC issues, gadgets, DIY and articles for keeping your home's HVAC in tip top shape, as well as recruiting the right company when you do need to finally get one. The purpose of this blog is to be a resource for you so that you can enjoy life and just let your Air Conditioning & Heating System do what it's supposed to do which is Heat & Cool your home.
How many times have you woken up in the middle of a Texas summer and been sweating hot and rolled over to your spouse and said those 3 magic words, "The AC's broken." Yep that's right. You went to bed nice and cool and now its 2 am and you are tossing and turning wondering if you are ever going to make it back to sleep before you have to get up to go to work the next morning. It can be a miserable 5 hrs. On top of that you are thinking of the huge repair bill that is possible when you call a company to come out. Which begs the next question, should you call a company out now or wait until morning? Most people will only have to call an HVAC company out to their home every 4 years or so and so are not familiar with the changes in the industry. It used to be that calling out a company in the middle of the night would cost you an arm and a leg but now most companies will charge a nominal fee to come out no matter what time of day it is.
There are alot of things to discuss in this blog. An HVAC system has lots of parts and so lots of potential problems. As well there are maintenace items you need to do to keep your system running normally. Nobody can avoid having to have an air conditioning or heater repair. Sometimes it just has to happen. But you want to try to do everything you can do to make sure you get the best deal and dont get taken advantage of. We will talk about how to look for a good contractor when it is time and what to look for. And we will answer those basic questions we as homeowners have such as "How often should I change my filters" etc.
