Happy Memorial Day!

Monday, May 27th, 2013

Memorial Day, which is observed on the final Monday of May every year, is an opportunity to honor and commemorate those military personnel who have fallen while serving their country. The day began in the aftermath of the American Civil War, when the country was damaged and in need of remembrance. Originally called Decoration Day, owing to the flowers that would decorate gravesites, its principal purpose has been to mourn those who have died during service; but it’s also a time to come together as a country and take stock of the way that our soldiers have shaped this country.

There is a national moment of silence and various events throughout the day. You may see volunteers putting flags up at your local cemetery or flowers decorating war memorials. It’s also a reprieve from our work schedule that should be enjoyed in tandem with remembrance. We wish you all the best this Memorial Day.

Why Replace Your Air Conditioning System?

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

Are you trying to figure out whether to repair or replace your air conditioning system? This is a difficult decision that requires professional advice. We say this because too often homeowners opt to replace systems that could be repaired or properly maintained. On the other hand, we also see homeowners continue to repair systems that should have already been replaced. The decision is yours to make, and there are numerous factors to consider: budget, energy efficiency, and your cooling needs. But what it ultimately comes down to is performance. You need to make sure that whatever course of action you take, it leads to comfort for you and your family. In today’s post, we’d like to give you some reasons why you should consider replacing your air conditioner instead of merely repairing it. Call Switzerland Air Conditioning today for exceptional Lake Jackson, TX air conditioning replacement.

  • Old age. One of the most common reasons to replace your system is due to old age. While your AC may have given you years of good service, after a certain age, it may be subject to breaking down due to mechanical failure or other issues, which is the last thing you want to happen during the dog days of summer.
  • Frequent repairs. If your AC is not only old, but also requires frequent repairs, then you should definitely consider replacement. Instead of continuing to put more and more of your resources into an obsolete and declining system, consider investing in the future of your home comfort with a brand new air conditioner.
  • Energy efficiency. Not only will a professionally installed new system cool your home better than your old one, it will also likely perform much more efficiently. Because energy efficiency is so important these days, replacing your air conditioning can actually lead to substantial energy savings in the long term, depending on your usage and the size of your home.

As one of the leading HVAC companies in your area, we offer a wide range of cooling solutions. If you’re in need of Lake Jackson, TX air conditioning replacement, don’t hesitate to call Switzerland Air Conditioning today.

What to Do if Your Air Conditioning System Breaks

Thursday, May 9th, 2013

The Angleton, TX air conditioning repair technicians at Switzerland Air Conditioning understand how frustrating a broken down air conditioning system can be. During the long, hot days of summer, you really need to be able to rely on the outstanding performance of your AC. Unfortunately; no air conditioning system is perfect. While a quality product paired with a professional installation and routine maintenance can help you get the most reliable performance possible from your air conditioner, you are eventually going to run into some problems. Should your air conditioning system break down, here are some tips to help deal with the situation.

First of all, while all air conditioning repair services must be completed by a qualified professional, make sure that there is not any obvious reason why your air conditioner has stopped working. It is possible that you have mistaken it for being broken down when really there is a simple explanation. Check the power supply to ensure that your system has not come unplugged. Also, open up your breaker box. A surge on the circuit that your air conditioner is powered on may have caused the breaker to trip. If this is the case, you can resolve the issue with the flip of a switch. Finally, and this may seem obvious, double check your thermostat. It is possible that you have accidentally switched it over to the “heat” setting, in which case your AC will not come on.

If you have ruled out all of these best case scenarios, contact us immediately. The longer you wait to have your AC repaired, the more discomfort you are subjected to and the greater the risk of damage you put your air conditioner in. Break out the fans and turn on your ceiling fans. Close any windows to trap the cool air in, and pull your blinds. This will help keep heat from radiating in while you wait for your AC to get back up and running.

To learn more about how you can keep your air conditioner operating properly, call our professional Angleton, TX air conditioning maintenance and repair technicians. We can answer any questions you may have. Contact Switzerland Air Conditioning to get started.
