Sugar Land, Texas has been named one of the hundred best cities to live in the United States, a title that’s well deserved. In addition to Sugar Land’s outstanding educational, cultural, and recreational opportunities, Sugar Land homeowners are on top of many things — including the upkeep of their homes.

Older AC systems use R-22 refrigerant. This will be phased out beginning in 2020. Now may be the time to upgrade your HVAC. We can help.
Prepare for the R-22 Ban by Upgrading Your A/C System
There are things you can do to prepare your home’s air conditioning for summertime, but an older A/C is more prone to overheating, especially in the extreme Sugar Land heat.
Although a good AC technician can help repair overheated parts, you should determine if having a new HVAC system installed makes more sense than paying whenever your old A/C system needs repair. Aside from assessing cost, consider the benefits of having a new A/C system installed: peace of mind, energy efficiency, and comfort for your family.
If your home’s air conditioning system uses R-22 refrigerant and it leaks you’ll probably be shocked by the pricetag. The refrigerant alone can cost hundreds of dollars! That’s because R-22 refrigerant will be completely phased out as of 2020, so production is at an all-time low. And because replacements of R-22 refrigerant (like R-22A) can cause safety hazards like fires and explosions, your best bet is to invest in an A/C system that is compatible with the new R410-A refrigerant.
When It’s Time to Replace Your AC
From First Colony to Telfair, John Moore has serviced thousands of Sugar Land homes over the past five decades.
And as summer approaches, we’ll be visiting many more homes in your neighborhood for AC repairs and new AC installations. That’s because many of the homes in Sugar Land are now ten to fifteen years old (or older). And if your home has the original AC system, fifteen years old is about the time it’ll start struggling. If you’re wondering if it’s about time to replace your AC system, here are some telltale signs.
- You’re paying too much on cost of repairs. There are things you can do to prepare your AC for summertime, but an older AC is more prone to overheating, especially in the extreme Houston heat. Although, a good AC technician can help repair these parts, you should determine if having a new HVAC system installed makes more sense than paying $500 or more each time you need your AC repaired. Aside from assessing cost, consider the benefits of having a new AC system installed: peace of mind, energy efficiency, and comfortability for your family.
- You’re paying too much on energy bills. If you’ve already addressed possible air leaks around your home and your energy bill still seems too high, it may be time to replace your AC system. Energy Star recommends replacing your air conditioner if it’s more than 10 years old — even if it’s still working. Outdated air conditioners may be using more energy than necessary. By installing an ENERGY STAR qualified HVAC system, you can potentially cut your monthly energy bill. Especially if you own a larger home — like those you find in Sweetwater, Avalon, and Commonwealth — a new AC can make a significant difference in your energy efficiency and monthly bill.
- You cannot find a safe, cost-effective replacement to R-22 Refrigerant. If your air conditioning system uses R-22 refrigerant and you need more, you’ll probably be shocked by the pricetag. Just the refrigerant alone can cost hundreds of dollars! That’s because R-22 refrigerant will be completely phased out as of 2020, so production is at an all-time low. And because replacements of R-22 refrigerant (like R-22A) can cause safety hazards like fires and explosions, your best bet is to invest in an AC system that is compatible with the new R410-a refrigerant.
Reliable A/C Repair & A/C Maintenance by Certified HVAC Technicians from John Moore
With the ability to change your home’s temperature at the touch of a button, it’s easy to forget all that happens in your home’s Air Conditioning system between the time you set the temperature on your thermostat and the time when the cool air starts flowing from your duct work.
What you don’t see during that time is the refrigerant pumped through your outdoor condenser coil to your indoor evaporator coil where it cools the air blowing past it. A/C coils often get dirty within a few years, making it harder for them to pump, cool, and release heat from your A/C system’s refrigerant. When A/C coils get dirty, they become prone to cracks and leaks and raise the cost of your energy bill.
Another thing homeowners don’t see- or are often unaware of until it’s too late- is their condensate drain line, a drain pipe that captures condensation that drips from your indoor evaporator coil. After a few years, algae can grow in your condensate drain line, causing it to clog. The cold water trapped in the drain line will then cause the line to sweat, which eventually deteriorates its insulation and leaves water marks on your ceiling.
To prevent A/C troubles and avoid the associated repair costs, you should be maintaining and inspecting your home’s A/C system twice a year. John Moore’s $69 tune-up and inspection covers all the common problem areas and includes cleaning your coils and condensate drain line. And if you notice that certain areas in your home- like your bedroom or living room- aren’t cooling to the temperature set to your A/C, our certified HVAC technicians can run a heat load calculation and determine whether your air ducts need to be resized or replaced or if your home needs an air balance.
Have you inspected your air conditioning system and cleaned your coils and condensate drain line recently? If not, call John Moore at 877-730-2525 and ask about our $69 tune-up and inspection.
