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.”

Heat pumps can be expected to make some noise. However, unusually loud noises point to a problem. If your system is reaching decibels impossible to ignore, you should turn it off to prevent further damages. Then give Wilson’s Heating & Air a call at 512-229-7774 to schedule a repair visit. We’ll be able to quickly identify the problem and give you a fair and honest quote.
Because we like to help educate our customers, here are five heat pump noises to keep an ear out for:
1. “Bam! Bam! Bam!”––Metal Rapidly Hitting Metal
If you hear a metallic clang repeating in a cycle, there’s probably something going on with your blower fan. What you’re hearing is the sound of the blades hitting another hard object. Immediately turn off your heat pump’s power if you believe this to be the case. Under this type of stress, the fan will become bent or chipped. Once the machine is off, inspect the inside for any foreign objects, then give one of our technicians a call to repair your fan if necessary.
2. “Sssss . . . ”––Hissing
There’s always a small chance a snake with unlimited lung power has inhabited your heat pump. However, the more likely possibility is you have a refrigerant leak. You’re hearing the sound of gas escaping. In this instance, you should contact one of our technicians to repair the leak and replenish the refrigerant supply.
3. “Reeeeeee . . . ”––Screeching/Squealing
Your heat pump should really use its “inside voice.” If you hear high-pitched screeching or squealing, there’s a good chance the motor is having trouble. When your motor’s bearings become dirty, this creates shrill noises. You should schedule routine maintenance to prevent this in the future. If the issue isn’t related to the bearings, it may be the motor itself giving out. Either way, a technician should inspect it.
4. “Hmmmm . . . ”––Loud, Low-Pitched Droning
A low-pitched hum is usually benign, unless it’s significantly louder than usual. You could think of this sound as the heat pump grumbling with hunger. It likely needs its oil refilled, its refrigerant refilled, or a new compressor. You might be tempted to fix it yourself. However, keep your distance, and let a technician wrangle the beast.
5. “Clink! Clank!”––Rattling
This sound can be particularly annoying. It usually indicates a loose, detached, or poorly balanced part. This could be a motor mount that has become unfastened. Or it could be your blower wheel has been poorly aligned and is rattling against another component in the heat pump. Yet another possibility is worn-down compressor bearings. One of our technicians can remedy all of these problems through a quick tune-up or part replacement if necessary.
