Temperatures past 100 degrees during a Texan summer and it is sticky with humidity sometimes too. Air conditioning is not a luxury, but a necessity. Air conditioners protect you from heatstroke, dehydration, and pulmonary problems.
Protecting yourself from the heat is vital for your and your family’s safety and comfort. Routine service will ensure that your air conditioner is functioning well throughout the duration of the summer and next summer too. If you want to take the guesswork out of caring for your air conditioner, consider having your unit regularly serviced by one of Minuteman Heating & Air’s highly trained technicians.

Warnings Signs Signaling Problems
An emergency air conditioning repair cannot always be prevented. However, taking proper care of your unit will reduce the likelihood of needing a repair. An emergency repair will always cost more than an ordinary repair but if you pay attention to the following warning signs you can take action before you have to shell out a lot of money.
Frosty Evaporator Coils
The evaporator coils are a vital component in any air conditioner. Evaporator coils work when a fan removes warm air out of your Arlington, TX home and the hot air passes over the evaporator coils. Then, the refrigerant from the evaporator coils cools the warm air and flows into your environment. The evaporator coils must receive adequate heat or they freeze over. It is wise to look for frost and ice on them.
Why is this happening?
- Dirty air filters.
- Too much or too little warm air.
- Faulty evaporator coils.
- Low coolant levels in the air conditioner.
- Dirty evaporator coils.
Importance of Clean Air Filters
Air filters should be replaced monthly or regularly cleaned. Reused air filters may collect grime, dust, pollen, and dirt particles making them less effective. Dirty air filters mean that they obstruct the airflow over the evaporator coils.
Dirty air filters also degrade the air quality in any indoor space. Replacing or cleaning is completed quickly during a routine service from Minuteman Heating & Air. This is an easy job but it is also a task that is easy to overlook.
Do not let dirt buildup on the air filters. How often you should change the air filters depends on the home or business, population, pets, cleaning habits, and other variables from home to home. If you neglect to attend to dirty filters, you could have to fund a much more costly air conditioning repair.
Frosts begin to collect on the evaporator coils when the fan is broken or damaged. A faulty fan may produce disruptive screeching noises that are emitted from your AC unit. If a fan has ended its lifespan then the motor, belts, and bearings may need replacing.
This is not a job for anyone but a trained professional. If you hear any weird and loud noises coming from your air conditioner, schedule a visit with a certified Minuteman Heating & Air professional in Arlington, TX. If you attempt to fix it yourself or put it off, and the longer you wait the more imperative it will be to have an air conditioning repair.
Low Refrigerant Levels
If the coolant is not precisely correct in your unit, then every component will have to work harder (possibly damaging the evaporator coils) and impact the efficiency of your air conditioner. Correctly refilling the refrigerant levels and repairing a faulty fan are jobs best entrusted to the friendly experts at Minuteman Heating & Air.
Dirty Condenser and Cooling Fins
After the coolant removes heat from the warm air it passes outside your space and throughout the cooling fins and condenser. The heat is extracted using the coolant. Then pushed outside into the air. A secondary fan oscillates air over the condenser and cooling fins to aid in the processing of the warm air.
Arlington’s highways are convenient but they create air pollution too. Pollution, dirt, weeds, moss, and grime collect on these components. These layers insulate the air conditioner’s parts obstructing how quickly heat is transformed into cool air.
Expensive Energy Bills in Arlington
Energy costs more these days than ever before. The city of Arlington is lucky to have access to the natural resources found in Texas, but wasting energy is still costly. If you witness a sharp spike in your energy tariff that is a big red flag you need an air conditioning repair.

“When I found my central air conditioner covered in ice I knew I needed an air conditioning repair and fast. My husband’s father has been a faithful customer of Minuteman for years. He is a smart man and knows good value when he sees it. So, I called you and the woman that answered the phone was so helpful. They even were able to conduct the AC repair while we were at work. The repair took more than 24 hours, but that was our fault because we had not been paying close attention to the unit. Defrosting the coils saved us hundreds of dollars and the technician was quick to respond when we told him they were ready for him to repair. I can see why my father-in-law trusts Minuteman. We scheduled a thorough duct cleaning too. If you have any HVAC needs call Minuteman Heating & Air today!”
