How To Prepare Your HVAC System For Summer

May 18, 2022 | Blog

With summer right around the corner, homeowners are wrapping up spring cleaning in preparation for the warm temperatures ahead.

At Barker’s Heating & Cooling in College Station, TX our goal is to guide you in summer preparations for your HVAC system and help your home feel as comfortable as possible. Our services are some of the best in the Brazos Valley area and we specialize in everything from AC installations to tune-ups and more! Here are some ways we can help your home stay cool in the hot weather ahead.

Maintenance Checks

Seasonal HVAC maintenance checks are essential for you and your family’s health and happiness. Our certified team members are reliable and ready to make sure your air conditioning system is functioning properly and in tip-top shape before the summer heatwaves arrive. We are ready to address any problem, including leaks, odors, and unusual noises. Our professionals also check electrical wiring, filters, and valves, as well as clean different parts of your unit and recalibrate equipment that is malfunctioning.

Energy Evaluations

Our thorough staff can also assess the efficiency of your HVAC unit and measure your energy consumption. These evaluations allow you to see where your AC’s weaknesses are and what you can do to cut down some of your energy costs. A well-maintained unit utilizes energy more economically and has higher rates of productivity- saving you lots of money!

Indoor Air Quality Inspections

Do you get whiffs of strange odors when your AC is on?

Our professional team is very knowledgeable when it comes to indoor air quality and ways to protect you and your family from particles and allergens in the air. We want our clients to breathe easy, and one way to ensure this is through cleaning your air ducts. When air ducts are clogged with debris and dust, ventilation is nearly impossible. Our staff knows just how to increase your indoor air quality, reducing allergens through clean ducts and improving circulation.

New Filters

Just like clogged air ducts, old filters are another common problem for your HVAC. Our technicians know that dust and dirt build-up over time- which requires a unit’s blower filter to be changed out at least twice a year. Regularly switching out your filters has many benefits, from lowering the amounts of particles in the air, to helping your AC unit run more smoothly.

Scheduling Repairs

Finally, setting up a time with one of our staff members to begin repairs on your HVAC can keep you from stressing out in the future. When one component of your AC is under duress, it can often cause a chain reaction of other smaller problems that are inconvenient and headache-inducing. Initiating air conditioner repairs for your outdoor unit right away will:

  • Help it function more efficiently in the future
  • Extend how long it can run
  • And save you time and money!

What Our Customers Are Saying

Very Professional

Chandler did an excellent job checking out our heat pump. He was very professional, communicated well, was responsive to our questions and I was very happy with everything he did.

Steve M.

Honest and Trustworthy

Our AC went out during a late summer heatwave. Called Barkers and Victor worked very hard to get the outside unit up and running. Two hours later we conceded to the death of a 29 yo unit. Victor notified the office the next morning, and within 24 hours we had a complete new system installed, and the house cooled by the time I got home from work. Highly recommend. Honest and trustworthy.

Susan H.

Very Impressed

We were impressed by this company from the first phone call. Reed was an exceptional young man; very personable and professional. The installation team of Mike, John and Cody did an excellent job. Barker’s is a business with high standards and we are very satisfied with everything about them. So glad we found this company!
