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.

On a frosty winter’s day here in Texas, your gas furnace is hard at work, keeping your Bastrop home warm and cozy. Feeling grateful? You’re not alone—it’s one of the most popular forms of heating, as American as apple pie.
In 1919, New Jersey inventor Alice H. Parker filed a patent for the first gas-fueled furnace. Years later, the basic technology is the same—only it burns less gas. In fact, modern furnaces burn at up to 97 percent efficiency, according to Consumer Reports. Keep this in mind if you’ve owned your heater for 10 years or longer.
Our team at Wilson’s Heating & Air could help you save big bucks on your monthly utility bill by performing a furnace replacement. And while we’re on the topic, we can help with your other HVAC needs: air conditioning, heat pumps, indoor air quality (IAQ), and more. All you need to do is call.
How a Gas Furnace Works
Furnaces that burn natural gas have four basic elements:
1. The Thermostat
Your thermostat is the eyes and ears of the operation. If it senses your home is below the target temperature, it sends signals to your furnace. Then, your furnace continues to cycle until your home is adequately warm. Finally, when it detects the desired temperature, the thermostat tells your furnace to stop running (until further notice).
2. The Ignitor
When your thermostat sends out a signal, the ignitor is the first to respond. Like the ignition starts your car—the ignitor starts your furnace.
If your heater is a decade old (or older), the ignitor might be a pilot light. The pilot stays lit 24/7, running on a small stream of natural gas. Newer furnaces have an electric ignitor, a considerably safer option. Electric ignitors are less risky because if your pilot goes out, you will quickly have a house full of gas fumes.
3. The Combustion Chamber
Next on the chain is the combustion chamber. This is where the ignitor lights the fuel. The natural gas becomes intertwined with oxygen supplied via a vent system or draft hood. The oxygen ensures that the fuel burns both cleanly and efficiently.
Besides taking in oxygen, the ventilation system pushes out exhaust through your flue. Economy flues are usually made out of galvanized steel. However, homeowners with polypropylene venting see long-term savings due to higher efficiency. The latter is also quite easy to install.
Whatever your flue is made out of—stay on top of maintenance. A clean flue ensures healthy air and prevents gas from getting squandered.
The Heat Exchanger
The combustion chamber emits heat, which gets collected by the heat exchanger. From there, the heat exchanger collects and distributes the treated air to your ductwork using burner-heated metal tubes.
When the tubes reach the right temperature, the furnace motor kicks on and begins blowing the air throughout your Bastrop home with the help of fans.
High-efficiency furnaces have variable-speed blowers, which use less energy and allow tighter temperature control. These premium models may also have multiple heat exchangers, which helps your furnace use less fuel.
Remember to schedule seasonal maintenance—a cracked heat exchanger can lead to a dangerous carbon monoxide (CO) leak.
