BBB offers advice for choosing a trustworthy heating and air conditioning business
Texas weather tends to be unpredictable, and this winter is a perfect example. Unpredictable weather can result in a higher possibility for allergies to affect your daily life.
According to energy.gov, furnaces and air conditioners need their filters cleaned and changed every couple of months. A dirty filter can also increase energy costs and damage equipment. So while your allergies may be caused by cedar or mold, regularly maintaining your home’s heating and cooling systems can improve the overall air quality of your home, cut energy costs and help alleviate allergies.
If your AC needs a bit of work or isn’t cooling properly, annual spring maintenance can help improve efficiency and prolong the life of your unit. Common air conditioner problems include a low or leaking refrigerant, issues with the thermostat, a clogged drain or a dirty filter.
Last year, BBB received 4,850 complaints against heating and air conditioning businesses nationwide. Most complaints against heating and air conditioning businesses report issues with guarantees/warranties, customer service and services performed by the business.
