No one wants to walk into their house and find it too hot. In the Humble, TX area, a single summer day without air conditioning can send temperatures in your home into the 90s or higher. Even a routine air conditioning failure can be an emergency, especially with vulnerable family members. In Humble, TX, you can count on Crew Heating & Air Conditioning to respond quickly, diagnose the problem, explain repair options, and complete repairs as quickly as possible.
It can be challenging to tell if your air conditioner is working in the summer heat. Your AC system should cool air temperatures by at least 20°. If you start the system in a hot house on a 100° day, the initial air may still feel warm. However, as long as you get that 20° drop, the system is probably working correctly. As it cools the air, it will intake cooler air, which will drop the air temperature coming out of the vents. It may take several hours or even a whole day to cool a hot house in Humble, TX to your desired temperature.
Check to make sure you have the unit on, that the power supply at the unit is on, and that your circuit breaker has not tripped. Power surges in Humble, TX can cause you to lose power to your AC unit. However, if your circuit breaker repeatedly trips, it may indicate an electrical problem in your unit requiring repair or maintenance.
Water will collect in your drip pan or under your unit if your condensate line is clogged. Many newer units in the Humble area have water sensors that will shut them down if they detect water. If you are handy, you may be able to flush out your drain line and get your Humble, TX AC working without a service call.
If your Humble, TX thermostat does not seem to be working, see if it is a battery-operated model. Try changing the batteries to see if that gets your system working.
Dirty filters block airflow. If your Humble, TX system appears to be blowing less air or the air is humid and warm, the problem could be as simple as dirty filters.
Your Humble, TX air conditioning system should not smell funny. If you notice any unusual moldy, chemical, or burning odors, turn off the unit and call for service. However, if you have a combined air conditioning and heating HVAC system, strange smells are expected when you first turn on your heater. That smell is burning dust and should only happen the first two or three times your heat comes on each season.
Your Humble, TX HVAC system should drain directly into a pipe. There is an overflow condensate drain in many homes that goes outside the house if the standard drain is clogged. If you see water coming out of that little pipe, it is a sign that your main condensate drain is blocked. Your unit’s AC drain pan should also empty at a constant rate. If you notice any changes in drainage, you want to fix them to prevent floods in your Humble home.
Air conditioners change air humidity as they cool. If you notice your Humble home feels more humid than usual, it could be a warning sign of an AC problem.
