“I HIGHLY recommend them!”

The technicians at ACTexas gave me lots of options including modifying my old system (which was cheaper but just buying time). I opted to replace the entire system! My AC bills have been half what they were this time last year! They worked so hard and did an amazing job! They were very honest about the cost (no hidden fees). Rating Angela W.
I had an excellent experience with James. He is solid guy whom you can tell loves his work. Not only did he assist me with repairing my AC...on a Sunday. He gave me priceless knowledge and he wasn't even scheduled to work. I pray this work ethic stays around for years to come. Workers like James are very hard to find. He should definitely be rewarded for all his hard work. Rating Matthew T.
Dispatcher was able to get me same day service when my air conditioning unit stopped working. Justin conducted the repair and was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and honest about the issue. I didn’t feel like he was trying to sell me services or equipment that was not needed. The prices were very reasonable - especially since we had the repair conducted same day! I would highly recommend this company and will be using them for all future maintenance and repairs! Rating Tricia T.
Mickey is great! He is very knowledgeable and professional and does a great job. He always texts me to let me know when he'll arrive and explains everything he's doing. He's earned our trust and we are very happy with his service. Rating Jet E
Came out quickly and diagnosed the issue, showed me what was wrong and completed the fix. I would highly recommend this company to anyone needing service. Rating A Robinson
Working with ACTexas was a great experience from start to finish. I would highly recommend them for any HVAC work that you may need from brand new install, repair, maintenance, or just an evaluation of your current HVAC system. They have great knowledge, experience, work ethic and customer service. Rating Ramil M

How to Fight Seasonal Allergies by Boosting Your Indoor Air Quality

As allergy season rushes upon us, we must prepare to fight back. A great way to do so is to maintain good indoor air quality in your home and business.

 

The Effects of Bad Air Quality

 

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is the quality of air that you take in at home or your workplace. According to the EPA, an American spends 90% of their time indoors. Due to this, the importance of IAQ in your home or business is significant. If ignored, poor IAQ can cause long and short-term health factors. Some of those include: 

 

  • Sneezing
  • Sinus congestion
  • Coughing
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Eye, throat, and skin irritation

It is reported that 3.8 million people a year die from illnesses caused by poor indoor air quality. Most people won't notice the problem until it is too late. Indoor air quality changes frequently throughout the day. Every time you turn on your heating or cooling system, it circulates dust, pollen, and bacteria throughout the air in your home causing your IAQ to decrease. Signs of poor indoor air quality include: 

 

  • Dirty central air conditioning and heating equipment
  • Stuffy and smelly air
  • Moldy or mildew smell around the home
  • Mold and mildew growth in books, shoes, cracks, and other items
  • Moisture on walls and windows

Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality

 

Cleaning Your Home

 

This may seem like a no-brainer, but when we recommend cleaning, we don’t mean dusting every 8 months. We recommend establishing a regular cleaning routine in your home to improve your IAQ. This can include:

 

  • Vacuuming regularly 
  • Wiping down surfaces with natural chemicals
  • Washing bedding, drapes, and other items that tend to attract allergens, especially if you have pets
  • Removing clutter around your home to prevent dust build-up

Improving Ventilation 

 

Another way to increase the indoor air quality is by properly ventilating your home. By improving your home's ventilation you are reassured that your home's indoor air quality will be at its peak. You can do this by: 

 

  • Changing or cleaning your home's AC filters
  • Having your vents cleaned regularly 
  • Using air cleaners and Ultraviolet germicidal cleaners

At the end of the day, don't let allergy season hit you like a truck. Guarantee you're doing everything in your power to help by improving your indoor air quality at home and work. Doing so will not only better your home but also your well-being.
