Ductless Mini-Split Installation in Bastrop, TX 78602
“Today we had Wilson's Heating and Air come and install a ductless mini-split in our garage. Nicole kept me informed through out the process and I am happy to state that Stephen and Barry were very professional. They both took the time to educate me on the system and they were very clean. They did not leave any mess behind. Most importantly they were honest people and the service was at a very reasonable price. Again, we appreciate their honesty, workmanship and service. I will recommend them to anyone that is looking for heating and air services.”

Recommend Wilson’s Heating And Air For Anyone
Very simple, I called and they had a person on site in about 3 hours. Problem was fixed within an hour, but a second call was placed a few hours later as it was not cooling. It was found that my drain had plugged on the discharge and had shut the compressor off after the unit was fixed. The drain was cleared and the second call was a no charge. During the repair it was determined that the evaporator coils in the AC unit were plugged and should be cleaned. I made arrangements to have that done a different day and since we were home on Memorial Day, the repair was done then in early morning. Very satisfied customer. Cost was realistic. Service was excellent. Recommend Wilson’s Heating and Air for anyone.

The Entire Team Went Above And Beyond Our Expectations
I obtained multiple bids for an air conditioning system and could not believe how everyone wanted your business and how some will even lure you in to a 50% interest rate. I was referred to Wilson’s and I have to say that it is probably the most professional a/c service company I had to deal with in many years of repairs and maintenance. Stephen spent almost an hour on the phone with me answering my many questions. Nicole and Stephen helped to facilitate our costs in a way that we could afford to make a full system replacement happen. The installation crew were on time, efficient and knowledgeable. They registered all of our equipment to make sure we get the best protection possible. The entire team went above and beyond our expectations and we are definitely happy to have them onboard for all of our future needs and repairs. I highly recommend them. In today’s times, it is hard to find people with integrity and good character.

Can you imagine a hot Bastrop summer without air conditioning? Your air conditioning system can be your very best friend on the warmest days.
Be sure you take the time to perform basic maintenance regularly as well as invest in a professional checkup at least once a year. According to the US Department of Energy (DOE), good maintenance can save you money and reduce your energy usage.
Here’s a comprehensive air conditioning maintenance checklist, courtesy of our professionals at Wilson’s Heating & Air, to help keep your system in excellent working order.
Check Air Circulation
Perhaps the most important thing to be sure you have around your air conditioner is plenty of space for good air circulation. Most air conditioners have a unit that sits outside your home.
It’s a good idea to inspect this area to be sure leaves, sticks, and other yard debris are cleared every spring. However, once the summer gets into full swing, don’t forget to mow and weed wack around your unit as well.
Being sure you regularly change your filters accomplishes the same goal of ensuring good air circulation. If you have a clogged filter, it can take your air conditioning system more effort to move the air throughout the unit, wearing down parts prematurely. Pay attention to the recommended life of your filters and change them on time.
Uses Your Senses
General awareness of how your air conditioning system should sound and look can be a simple thing for you to have. If you notice something doesn’t look quite right or your air conditioner is suddenly making unusual sounds or emitting strange odors, it can signal a need for air conditioning repair or maintenance.
Check Coolant Levels
Although the first three items on the checklist are easy for just about any Texas homeowner to do, the remainder of these items may take a bit more experience. If you are uncomfortable with any of these additional maintenance tasks, be sure to call in one of our professionals to help.
The refrigerant or coolant must be at a specific level and pressure to keep your air conditioning system running efficiently. You’ll want to periodically check this level, and if your coolant is low, you’ll need to call in one of our professionals to refill your system. In addition, leaking coolant can be a significant problem for the environment, so address any noticeable leaks immediately.
Look for Ice Buildup
If you notice your air conditioning evaporator coil has ice building up on it, you probably have an air-circulation problem. Double check to be sure your filter and ductwork are clean.
If you have a great deal of ice, you may need to shut off your system, defrost all of it, ensure air circulation is fine, and then turn it back on. If the problem continues, it’s a good idea to call one of our professionals to conduct an inspection.
Be sure all the electrical connections as well as ductwork and other tubing within the system look tight and secure. Again, this may take experience to understand what a solid system should look like, and you may want to rely on a professional inspection once a year.
Most heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) companies will provide a comprehensive service of cleaning and inspection for a reasonable fee. Relying on certified, trained technicians can be an excellent investment in your air conditioning system. Call our Wilson’s Heating & Air team with any questions you may have.
A thermostat is a bit of a tangential part of an air conditioning system, but it’s an important one. If your thermostat is not working properly, it will not be sending the correct information to your air conditioner.
As a result, your system can’t work properly. In addition, if a broken thermostat causes your system to cycle on and off too frequently, it can cause longer-term damage to your entire air conditioning system.
