Air Conditioner Maintenance in Austin, TX 78701
“I remember one extremely hot summer day several years ago, watching with amusement as a couple of boys in the neighborhood were trying to fry an egg on the hood of an old car. But a few hours later, the scorching temperatures did not seem nearly as funny whenever I noticed the temperature on my thermostat steadily rising. The fan on the airconditioning unit was still turning, but unfortunately it was blowing nothing but hot air. Things got steamy very quickly. After calling several AC companies and being told that they might be able to get to my problem "next week," I was desparate and decided to try a company outside the Austin city limits. This is how I stumbled on Wilson's Heating and Air Conditioning. This proved to be the best piece of luck with air coditioning issues that I ever had. Not only did Stephen Wilson, the company's owner, show up to address my problem personally, but within a couple of hours, he patched my badly degraded unit and kept it going until it had zero life. His company was a logical choice for us whenever we had to replace the unit. Since that hot summer day, Stephen has done a lot of work for my family and we have always found him to be honest, reliable, fast, and very knowledgeable about the products that he uses. We would never consider letting anyone else work on our heating and air units. If Stephen tells you something, you can "take it to the bank." He and his office manger, Nicole, operate Wilson's Heating and Air Conditioning the way EVERY business should be run. Their motto is the needs of the customer are always FIRST.”

Air Conditioner Replacement in Pflugerville, TX 78664
“Have had Wilson's a/c taking care of our old home for past 2 years and when I moved to our new home, used other vendors that were closer. None of them were as honest as the Wilson group about what I needed and therefore, fought a/c problems for 1st year in my new home. Wilson's came out, told be what I needed. They were able to get my new system in and fixed the other units to work more efficiently. I now have a comfortable home. I recommend this company to everyone that mentions they have a/c or heating problems. Stephen explains how to make the a/c work more efficient, how the machines are suppose to operate for maximum performance.”

Air conditioners can help filter your home’s air and control humidity, and both of these things are important in the allergy world. It’s estimated there are now 50 million seasonal allergy sufferers in America. Properly maintaining your HVAC system is the difference between your air conditioner helping with those allergies and it aggravating them. Wilson’s Heating & Air specializes in air conditioners. Contact us with any questions you may have.
How Your Air Conditioner Helps
Whether you suffer from seasonal allergies or year-long allergens like pet dander or dust, your air conditioning can help you breathe easier. The air conditioner filters out irritant air particles and your indoor air quality is improved. These particles get stopped by the filter and aren’t allowed to continue through the system to make their way to your lungs.
Indoor air quality is also improved when your home’s humidity is being controlled. Higher levels of humidity breed additional allergens like bacteria, mold, and mildew. Your air conditioning works hard to balance your home’s humidity, thereby reducing the instances of these allergens and irritants.
When It Doesn’t
Your air conditioner can help in these instances, except when it’s not maintained properly. When the maintenance on your HVAC system is neglected, your indoor air quality is worse. Thus, your allergies may get worse.
If your filter continues to trap the particles flowing through the system and isn’t changed, those particles build up. With nowhere to go, they will blow back into your home.
The same applies to the other allergens resulting from higher humidity or dampness. If the humidity builds, or if there are leaks somewhere in the system, a damp environment now exists. Mold and bacteria have free rein to flow through your home’s air, adding to the allergens you’re breathing.
What You Can Do
To keep your air conditioning helping your allergies, take these steps:
- Have your air conditioner cleaned and maintained regularly, at least once a year
- Change or clean your air filters regularly
- Clean any debris or dust around both your outdoor and indoor air conditioner units
- Dust all indoor registers and returns on a regular basis
- Inspect your ductwork and HVAC unit (drip pan and drain, evaporator coils, air handler) for signs of leaks, corrosion, or mold
- Consider upgrading your air conditioner if over ten years old
- Keep doors and windows closed while your air conditioning is running
Consider adding on an air purifier
