AC Maintenance in The Woodlands, TX
After you have received installation of your new air conditioning system or if you have owned one for quite some time, it should be noted that regular maintenance may be required for upkeep or that there could be certain cases of malfunction which require immediate maintenance from a technician. While some maintenance and upkeep could be done yourself, like changing or cleaning your home’s air filters, there are other jobs which will require a professional. A few examples of routine maintenance that will inevitably be necessary are to clean the air conditioner’s coils, remove any debris from the unit that may have been caught in there through routine use, and to straighten the coil fins. Those three examples are good examples of scenarios that are caused by intrusions (dirt, grass clippings, leaves, etc) that can ultimately interrupt or block/bend the airflow and reduce effectiveness of your system.

Air Conditioning Maintenance in The Woodlands
Sometimes, the maintenance that will be required are the repair or replacement of components that can unfortunately and suddenly break or malfunction. Components can be expensive, but it is better to purchase and install the new parts as soon as possible because certain components being malfunctioned can put other components at risk of malfunction, thus increasing the price for maintenance or repair. As an example, if the fan motor on the air conditioning system were to break and a replacement were required, the best estimate of the cost is anywhere from $300 - $600. There are many signs of a fan motor being bad and some signs are not enough to indicate fan motor issues, so it is best to check that one before assuming. Though the replacement seems expensive, it is best to replace the fan motor as soon as possible, since if the air conditioning system is working without a fan motor, the next likely component to break is the compressor. The compressor can possibly cost up to $2000 for replacement, so it is best to just replace that fan motor. While air conditioners can experience refrigerant leaks, if the system is properly maintained, it should never really be necessary to add Freon. A more expensive replacement is to replace the outside unit. The price varies widely, depending on many factors, but the estimate on the low end is $2500 while the high end could easily be about $5000 or nearly $6000. Finally, if the desire is to put in central air, the cost can range from about $3000 and possibly over $7000.
