Seguin Residential HVAC Service

Like the rest of Texas, Seguin experiences very hot, humid summers from June to September. The winters are mild. This weather calls for an HVAC unit to regulate indoor temperatures and humidity and for better indoor air quality. Regular Seguin residential HVAC service is necessary to keep your HVAC system in good operating condition and to increase its longevity.

However, most Seguin residents do not know how HVAC systems work. This is dangerous because you will not know telltale signs that call for prompt residential HVAC repair in Seguin TX, meaning a simple problem could exacerbate. Here are the major HVAC components that require constant monitoring and what they do.

  • The furnace: Furnaces use natural gas or oil to heat air. They contain heat exchangers, which are the components responsible for heating up air to the desired temperature. Furnaces are usually found in designed closet spaces, basements, or attics.
  • The air conditioner: The AC part of the HVAC system is responsible for cooling air during hot days. AC units are usually found outside the home. The units use electricity and coolants/refrigerants to reduce the temperature of the air and they send the cooler air out while sending the hot air outside. The AC unit has different components, among them an expansion valve which creates a restriction in the liquid line, an evaporator to remove heat from the air in exchange for a boiling refrigerant, a compressor for creating the energy needed to thrust the refrigerant around, and a condenser to push built-up heat from the refrigerant into the outside air. Call us for residential HVAC service in Seguin TX to ensure the air conditioner remains functional.
  • Ductwork: This is the transit system for both cold and hot air in an HVAC unit. Ductwork is installed throughout the interior of the house. Seguin residential HVAC service of the ductwork should be left to a professional to protect not only the HVAC system but also the integrity of your walls.
  • Thermostat: The thermostat is the “brain” of the HVAC system. It senses when the room needs to be heated or cooled and automatically turns the system on and off. It also operates other features of your HVAC system.
