If you decide to replace, we will do a load calculation, which is a computer printout showing how big a system you need and why.
New variable-speed air conditioners’ compressors operate at different speeds depending on the need for cooling. Rather than being only 100% on or off, they have several different speeds. This allows the AC to cool your home at lower speeds for longer periods of time, while still having the higher speeds for when the outdoor temps get really high.
Likewise, an undersized unit will never achieve its peak optimization, ends up consuming too much energy, and runs too long causing additional wear and tear on parts.
Your air conditioning system is much like our vehicle in that they both require regular maintenance to ensure best performance. When scheduled maintenance is neglected, overall performance begins to drop and the level indoor air pollutants start going up as well as energy consumption.
Regular HVAC preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure trouble-free operation and peak performance. Pre-season maintenance is vital as it helps avoid system failures in sever hot or cold weather when you need it most, and it can also keep your energy bill from getting out of control.
THC offers service and maintenance contracts on both existing and new HVAC systems. Our process is to schedule and perform preventative maintenance and, with our modern equipment, assess possible issues up front. Once we have completed the initial maintenance, we can then begin helping your business save money. Our service technicians are factory trained and have the background and experience to maintain, diagnose, and repair the most complicated systems.

A well maintained system not only helps you save on energy, but helps you identify potential and upcoming problems. Our preventative HVAC maintenance will:
- Increase efficiency through regular maintenance, repairs, and tuning your entire HVAC equipment to peak performance.
- Increase life expectancy of your HVAC equipment with scheduled visits and preventative maintenance procedures.

Deciding to Replace or Repair
Having your HVAC system break down in our Texas heat is no fun, but we can help identify issues early through our Maintenance Programs. Just like your car, your air conditioning unit must have scheduled maintenance done so that it stays in excellent working condition throughout the year. Sometimes, however, repairs do become necessary, such as recharging the refrigerant, and being able to do this preventably helps you budget accordingly.
At some point, when expenses and age of your air conditioning system exceed the benefits of replacing your unit THC can get you into a new and more energy efficient HVAC.
* Is your HVAC System more than 10 years old or not keeping you comfortable?
* Is your air conditioner, furnace, or boiler running a lot?
* Are you paying more than you think you should in energy bills?
If your answer is yes to any one of these questions, replacing your old air conditioning system may better help heat and cool your home while overall saving you money in repairs and energy expenses. Heating and cooling is the biggest energy consumer in most homes here in Texas, accounting for more than 40 percent of your home’s energy bills.
