Ductless Mini-Split Installation in Del Valle, TX 78617

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.”

Thermostats 101

December 13, 2018

What are thermostats?

Thermostats are the brains of the HVAC system. They facilitate heating and cooling so the temperature in your house is where you want it to be.

How do they work?

When you set the desired temperature on the thermostat, it sends signals to your HVAC system. Your HVAC system then produces bursts of hot or cold air to maintain the set temperature on the thermostat.

What do the On and Auto settings mean?

These settings control your HVAC unit’s fan. When set to On, the fan blows continuously. When set to Auto, your fan blows only to circulate hot or cold air. The Auto setting is more commonly used, because it consumes less electricity. The On setting is popular in households with humid climates, since it dissuades mold growth.

What types of thermostats are there?

There are three basic types: nonprogrammable, programmable, and smart thermostats.

What are nonprogrammable thermostats?

Nonprogrammable thermostats are classic, accessible, and inexpensive. Chances are you grew up with one in your home. Their simple, easy-to-use interface makes heating and cooling your home a breeze. However, they do have a few disadvantages. You’ll have to make all adjustments manually. They are also the least efficient type out of the three models.

What are programmable thermostats?

Programmable thermostats are perfect for the working household. If your house is empty for long periods during the day, there’s no reason to leave your furnace or air conditioner on. Programmable thermostats give you Home and Away options. They are a more efficient option––you’ll pay considerably less on your energy bill. On the flip side, they require a larger initial investment than traditional thermostats. Also, the starting-and-stopping mechanism may be harder on your equipment.

What are smart thermostats?

Smart thermostats are the most futuristic option. These devices can be controlled remotely on your computer, tablet, and/or smartphone. Because of their intelligent design, a smart thermostat can track your living habits and adjust itself after awhile. You can also monitor your energy usage on your mobile devices. Because of the advanced technology, this option is the priciest out of the three.
