HVAC is short for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning. HVAC is most often used to depict the whole heating and cooling system consisting of ductwork, air filters, humidification controls, and registers.
We recommend that your heating and cooling system be checked and serviced twice a year; ideally a spring and autumn tune-up. The most important part of HVAC maintenance is unrestricted airflow. Changing all filters once a month can eliminate the most common issues a unit will experience and can significantly reduce the likelihood of a breakdown. Dust, dirt, and debris are an HVAC system’s worst enemies. Whether it’s an indoor or outdoor unit, heat exchangers, coils, and all filters must remain clean and free of restrictions.
Texas Pride Heating & Air can service warranty repairs for all systems. There is a label with the manufacturer date located on the outside of your HVAC unit. If your equipment is less than five years old, there is a good chance it still has a warranty, but this is also dependent on the model. Warranty terms and conditions change by the manufacturer. We can verify the warranty status of your heating and cooling system.
Regular filter replacement helps your heating and cooling system operate at peak levels and improves indoor air quality. It is important to change filters regularly to ensure proper air flow and to keep your home free from dust, allergens and germs. Depending on the type of filter you have, you may require monthly or annual filter replacements. Your Texas Pride Heating & Air service or installation technician will recommend the ideal filters and replacement schedules for your unit(s).
Yes. Loud heating and cooling equipment contribute to sound pollution. Although no financial savings are tied to lower sound levels, the sound rating of a cooling system can have a considerable effect on comfort and enjoyment of your home. The sound level of an air conditioner or heat pump depends on a variety of factors, such as the age and make of the unit, and whether the compressor is insulated or not can contribute to the amount of noise it makes.
Bigger isn’t always better; its performance and efficiency that count. Before purchasing a replacement system, you should make sure your system is sized to match your needs and budget. Your Texas Pride Heating & Air will thoroughly assess your home and comfort requirements to determine the proper size and make the appropriate recommendation.
A few quick tips:
- Clean and replace your filters frequently.
- Your system will heat and cool more evenly when the blower is in the “on” position. The blower provides constant air movement throughout the home and allows for better filtration
- Install shades, drapes, shutters, or screens on windows that are exposed to extreme sunlight to keep room temperatures at moderate levels.
You may have tried to cover up indoor odors by spraying air fresheners or lighting candles. Unfortunately, these tactics only mask the odors, they don’t get rid of them. These remedies may in fact negatively affect indoor air quality from chemicals that cause allergic reactions or eye irritation for homeowners.
Bacteria, dust mites, animal dander, cat saliva and mold may also be roots of your home’s odor problem. One method to purify the air is integrating germicidal (UV) lights in your heating and air conditioner unit, which helps kill odors and inhibit the growth of biological contaminants. They also purify the air, preventing the growth of contaminants. The UV lights are installed to work with your home HVAC system.
Sometimes poor ventilation contributes to unpleasant odors. Moisture condensation on walls windows and stagnate air are signs of poor ventilation. A qualified Texas Pride Heating & Air technician can inspect your system to determine if this is an issue that should be addressed. The technician can also inform you how to solve the ventilation system’s ability to correctly circulate and ventilate indoor air.
Every person and every home has different needs. The threshold of irritancy and triggers that affect people’s health and comfort combine to determine the proper solutions. High threshold levels may require simple solutions like a better air filter. Low threshold levels may require an air purification system for the reduction of triggers and irritants. Texas Pride Heating & Air can provide indoor air improvement product recommendations.
According to studies created by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, exposure to air pollutants indoors can be 100 times higher than outdoors. Frequent dusting and vacuuming can help reduce the amount of dust and dust mites present in your home. However, not all airborne particles can be eliminated. Filtration devices can help eliminate particles that are too small to be caught by a vacuum. Some filtration devices include UV light units, air filters, energy recovery ventilators (ERVs), heat recovery ventilators (HRVs) and electronic air cleaners. A Texas Pride Heating & Air will provide the information about which indoor air improvement devices are right for you.

Temperature settings depend on the time of year and your personal preferences. In the summer, the average temperature setting is 75°-80°. In the winter 68°-72° is the norm. Remember, when leaving your house; try to avoid drastic temperature changes. Do not set your temperature back more than 5°; this will cause your unit to work harder to achieve the desired temperature setting.
