“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

Why Is My Furnace Leaking Water?

As the winter approaches, your furnace becomes more important than ever. Keeping you and your family warm and comfortable. Seeing water forming around the unit may start to worry you. This will usually indicate something is either leaking, dripping or not draining properly. With different furnace units, there are different issues.  Remember that you should never see water around your furnace unit–regardless of the type you have. Although, sometimes the issue can be minor and easily fixed, there are times where it’s a serious problem.

Cause #1: Condensation

With high-efficiency furnaces, the most common cause for water around the unit is condensation. The cause for condensation is usually clogged condensation tubing or drains, breaks in the condensation line and possible issues with the condensation pump if you have one.  Secondly, a standard-efficiency furnace (that has a metal exhaust pipe) shouldn’t have condensation, however, if it does, it is usually because the flue pipe was sized incorrectly. This could cause the hot exhaust to cool down, thus condensing in the pipe, draining into the furnace and then leaking out.

Cause #2: Humidifier

If there is a small device attached to your furnace which has various hookups for water, electricity and drainage–then you have a humidifier. A couple common issues with the humidifier include a clogged filter or drain which causes the unit to leak. If not fixed in time, the leak could cause internal damage to your furnace unit.

Cause #3: Secondary Heat Exchanger

The purpose of a secondary heat exchanger is to remove heat from the exhaust of the furnace.  A faulty secondary heat exchanger is very costly to fix and if the problem is not solved then it may be time to replace your old furnace and install a new one.

Cause #4: Clogged Drain

The last possibility of water around your unit could be an internal drain clog. If you still have your AC unit, it could share an internal drain, causing an internal plug, thus creating the leak. f left untreated, this could also pose further issues and prevent your furnace from working properly.

If you’ve noticed water around your furnace unit and are concerned, it’s important to contact an HVAC contractor to provide furnace maintenance and address the issue. Contact the team at ACT Air Conditioning Texas today.
