Owning, or even sometimes renting, a home in Bastrop, TX, requires general maintenance to keep your investment in working order. It’s really all about being prepared. Per Benjamin Franklin, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Maintaining your home’s systems and appliances wards off emergency situations and costly repairs while extending your equipment’s life. Take the time and money to perform general maintenance on a regular basis. Many of the maintenance services require the knowledge, skills, and tools of a professional. During the maintenance or service call, our technician will make any necessary repairs and/or alert you of a possible situation. Call Wilson's Heating & Air to assist you in maintaining any of the following or to answer any questions you may have:
For furnaces, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed in the fall. The purpose is to keep your system running at top efficiency throughout the season, i.e., to keep you having heat when you need it. Our technician will check and clean all the connections, controls, sensors, drains, ignitor, ducts, pipes, burners, valves, motors, thermostat(s), and smoke/carbon-monoxide detectors, and instruct you on anything you could do between our service visits. As a rule of thumb, furnace filters need to be changed every three months or as needed, which is something you can do yourself with the correct filters.
Air Conditioner Maintenance
For air conditioners, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed in the spring. Our professional technician will check and clean the connections, coils, blower components, lines, refrigerant, drain, fuses, and thermostat(s), as well as lubricate all working parts. Maintenance you can do yourself between service visits is to remove any yard debris or vegetation from the top and sides of your outdoor air conditioner unit, as well as to keep it covered with an air conditioner cover or tarp in the winter.
Heat Pump Maintenance
For heat pumps, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed in the fall, same as furnaces and boilers. Our professional technician will check and clean ducts, filters, blower, indoor coil, ducts, refrigerant, electric terminals, connections, motors, and belts, as well as lubricate all working parts. Be sure to change or clean the filter every three months or as needed. You can also clean the outdoor coils whenever they seem dirty, and keep yard debris and vegetation away from the unit.
Whole-House Humidifier Maintenance
For whole-house humidifiers, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed at the same time as your furnace tune-up and cleaning. Our professionals include this maintenance along with the furnace appointment. Typically there isn’t much in the way of maintenance; however, our technician will change your humidifier pad and clean any mineral buildup you may have (in the case of hard water). Ask our technician to show you how to dissolve the buildup on your own every few months to keep your humidifier working at top efficiency.
Air-Filtration System Maintenance
For air-filtration systems, regular maintenance is something your can perform on your own. Maintenance on an air-filtration system usually just means changing or cleaning the filter every three to nine months. But you should check with the manufacturer’s specific recommendations. Changing or cleaning your filter on a regular basis will ensure the best filtration for your home as well as extend the life of the system. If you need any assistance or would like to install an air-filtration system, feel free to talk with one of our professionals at Wilson's Heating & Air.

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 Duct Maintenance in Bastrop, TX 78602
“On-time, thorough and, thankfully, low-pressure. We had Capital Air out last year, and were subjected to (although we did not bend) to a hard-sell for a new Amana system install (which is unnecessary at this time, and I'm not even remotely sold on that brand, in any case). Thankfully, Mr. Wilson is entirely free of this variant of a repulsive "car salesman syndrome" and did not attempt to pressure us into purchase unheeded hardware. He's personable, sober and admirably low-key.
We are strongly inclined to retain Wilson's Heating & Air services, again.”
