A Match Made in Heaven: Your Home and One of Our Smart Thermostats
Texas Air Authorities Can Hook Them Up!
“He completes my sentences.” “It’s as if she can read my mind.” Isn’t love grand? During this month dedicated to love, the good guys at Texas Air Authorities are celebrating matches made in heaven and the benefits that come with amazing partnerships.
Speaking of amazing partnerships, here’s one you might not have thought about: your home and a smart thermostat. That’s right! This truly is a match made in heaven. It’s a little known fact, but the proper use of a smart thermostat can cut your heating and cooling costs and reduce the need for AC and heater replacement service in Mansfield, TX, and beyond. Nearly 50% of your monthly energy costs are controlled by your thermostat, so a smart device can have a major impact on your energy bills.
Let us hook up your house with a smart thermostat! Every member of your household is sure to fall in love with it. This little cutie allows you to create automatic and programmable temperature settings based on your day-to-day schedules, heating and cooling needs and weather conditions.
Put Your Savings on Autopilot!
Plus, just as two people in love can finish each other’s sentences and read each other’s thoughts, your smart thermostat will be able to read the rhythms of your household and adjust heating and cooling temperatures according to factors such as when your home is empty and when it’s bustling with activity. This will cut your energy use when no one is home for long stretches, reducing your energy bills!
With a regular thermostat, you probably spend a lot of time adjusting the temperature when you leave the house and then readjusting it when you return. Your smart thermostat will automatically make these adjustments. Plus, you can use your phone or other smart device to tinker with the thermostat after you leave, just before you return home or any time in between. Yes, you can program your thermostat from your phone or other smart devices. You’ll even have the ability to generate weekly and monthly energy reports.
Standard Just May Not be Good Enough for Your House
We know! We know! You already have a standard programmable thermostat, right? Well, that’s great. But keep in mind that standard programmable thermostats only save you energy (and money) if they are properly programmed. We’ve found that most homeowners (as many as 89%, according to one survey) never program these thermostats or, if they do, they override the programming!
We love playing matchmaker. Our crackerjack team will be happy to ride on over to your house, make the proper introductions and let your house get cozy with its new smart thermostat. Before long, you’ll be wondering what took so long for these two love birds to get together.

Need a New Furnace? Don’t Focus on Cost Alone
A Highly Experienced Installer Is Essential for Total Peace of Mind
Your furnace is kicking up a fuss—evidence that its days are numbered. Ouch! It’s time for you to hit the trail in search of new heating system firepower. Or is it?
The good guys at Texas Air Authorities offer exceptional heating repair services for customers in Mansfield, TX, and nearby. Before you pull the plug on that old furnace, let us thoroughly examine the evidence. At Texas Air Authorities, we will never talk you into a costlier replacement when a dependable, more affordable repair will do the trick.
However, if it is time put your old workhorse furnace out to pasture, we want to help you steer clear of a costly mistake that many homeowners make when in the market for a new heating system: focusing on the price alone.
Of course, we agree that cost matters. You want your new heating system to be as affordable as possible. But another extremely important factor to consider is the skill and experience of your installation team. That’s right! An inexperienced or disreputable contractor can make mistakes that will rob you of your comfort and cost you a ton of loot in the long run.
Here are just some of the problems you will avoid by choosing a trusted and experienced installer like us:
- The wrong fit. Don’t let your contractor assume your new furnace should be the same size as your old one. First, it’s possible your existing furnace was sized incorrectly or it was not upgraded when home renovations or some other change necessitated it. Plus, today’s units are more efficient so a smaller system may be all you need now. Your contractor needs to measure your space to make sure the size of your new furnace is right. A furnace that’s too big (or too small) will not operate efficiently, which will compromise your comfort, boost your energy bills, cause greater wear and tear on your furnace and increase the risk of repairs and breakdowns.
- The wrong ducts. For your furnace to operate efficiently, you also need a duct system that meshes with your furnace and your space. Some contractors will use an old, inadequate duct system when installing a new furnace. The sharp shooters at Texas Air Authorities will always check for leaks and other problems, replacing the ductwork if necessary.
- The wrong duct installation techniques. Some contractors will cut corners, using cheap materials and shoddy workmanship when installing ductwork. They can leave gaps and cracks when installing your ductwork or use tape instead of higher quality sealer. Not Texas Air Authorities. We come armed with quality materials and time-tested installation processes.
- Inadequate drain systems. Your furnace produces wastewater, which needs to be drained properly. When the drainage system is inferior, you end up with water leaks that could cause serious damage to your property. Water leaks can promote mold growth and other air quality issues. When temperatures dip in the winter, they also can cause pipes to freeze.
- Improper exhaust. Your furnace generates carbon monoxide and other toxic gases that need to be properly vented to the outdoors. This requires a properly sized damper or exhaust flue. If this work is not done properly, you are at risk for toxic gases building up in your home. (Make sure you have a properly functioning carbon monoxide detector!)
The benefits of a properly installed furnace system include:
- Lower service costs
- Longer system lifespan
- Improved comfort
- Greater safety
- Less noise

Make An Energy-Efficiency List—And Check It Twice
Texas Air Authorities Will Get Your HVAC Unit in Tip-Top Shape
From cookie baking to presents to holiday meals, ‘tis the season for making lists—and checking them twice. The good guys at Texas Air Authorities would like to remind you that there’s another very important list you should be making right now—a checklist to improve your home’s energy efficiency.
That’s right! Energy efficiency isn’t just good for the planet. It can save you a bundle, too. And we’re the home comfort partner that is here to help. From our exceptional heater repair service in Grand Prairie, TX, to our superior indoor air quality services in Arlington, TX, we have a fully-stocked arsenal of products and services that can help you on your journey to greater efficiency, big savings and total comfort.
Here are just a few items that should be on your checklist:
- Lower your thermostat. Get into the habit of lowering your thermostat when you’re not home. When you lower the temperature by just 3 to 5 degrees, you’ll notice a drop in your monthly energy bills. When you lower it by 10 to 15 degrees while you’re at work, you can save you as much as 5 percent to 15 percent a year.
- Seal up those windows. Your heating system needs to work overtime when cold air seeps in through gaps and cracks around your windows. Weatherstripping, silicone caulk and sheets of shrink film are all effective ways to keep out drafts and prevent air leaks. Your efforts can save you 10 percent to 20 percent a year on energy costs.
- Embrace cold. Did you know that your washer uses 90 percent of its energy to heat the water? If you use cold or warm water instead of hot, you’ll save loads of energy—and your clothes will be just as clean.
- Insulate the attic. A well-insulated attic helps eliminate air leaks and cut cooling and heating expenses.
- Replace those incandescent bulbs. Incandescent bulbs continue to be phased out because they’re simply inefficient. You can save even more on your energy bill by replacing old bulbs with light-emitting diodes (LEDs), compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and halogens. LEDs cost more, but they save you more over time (lasting up to 10 times longer). Plus, they’re cooler to the touch.
- Look for the Energy Star. Refrigerators, TVs, washers, stoves, air conditioners and other Energy Star products must meet strict standards and use 10 percent to 50 percent less energy. They also help reduce greenhouse gases and emissions.
- Give your HVAC system some love. Never underestimate the value of those yearly tune-ups. When your heating and cooling systems operate at peak efficiency, you enjoy total comfort—and monthly energy cost savings. Our crackerjack team of skilled and experienced techs will tighten connections, clean coils and make sure all parts are properly lubricated. These are all things that improve efficiency. Annual checkups also can reduce the need for unexpected HVAC repairs and cooling and heating replacements in Grand Prairie, TX, and beyond.

Is a Heat Pump a Powerful Weapon Against the Texas Cold?
You Bet It Is! Learn the Facts From Texas Air Authorities
Don’t let the name fool you. A heat pump isn’t just an excellent weapon for keeping your home toasty warm this winter. It also provides the right ammunition to make your house super cool during the long, hot summer season ahead.
So, what exactly is a heat pump?
A heat pump is made up of two components: a condenser outside of your home and an air handler located inside. A refrigerant line connects both components. The heat pump uses refrigeration and electricity to heat and cool your home. During the winter, it pulls the warmer air from outside, warms it up even more and pushes it into your house. During the summer, it sucks the warm air out of your indoor space and pushes it outside, filling your home with cool contentment. At Texas Air Authorities, we are sharpshooters when it comes to installation, replacement, maintenance and heat pump repair service in Grand Prairie, TX, and the surrounding communities.
What are the benefits of a heat pump?
For starters, a heat pump saves you money on your energy bills. It only uses electricity for power, not for generating heat. As a result, it is extremely efficient. Here’s how it works. With baseboard or other traditional electric heat, the heat created is proportional to the electricity used. To achieve 100 percent efficiency, you need one unit of heat per unit of electricity. Heat pumps, on the other hand, can generate more than three units of heat for every unit of electricity used—a 300 percent efficiency rate. That’s because electricity is only used to power the evaporator and condenser fans, compressor and pump, not to generate heat.
Heat pumps are inexpensive to run. If your heat pump runs constantly, it will increase your monthly electric bill by about $75. When you use a heat pump as a secondary heating system, you can save money on gas, oil or electric. For example, in a typical home, you can save up to 300 gallons of oil by using your heat pump to offset the need to operate your furnace.
Will a heat pump stop working when it’s too cold out?
Yes. A heat pump is not a wise choice in extremely frigid climates. When temperatures drop into the negatives, a heat pump must work harder and will be less efficient. When it gets below a certain temperature, a heat pump will stop working completely. But here in Texas where winters are mild, a heat pump is an excellent option. A heat pump also is more efficient in a well insulated home.
Can I heat my home using only a heat pump?
Yes. A heat pump can be your primary and only heating source because our winters are mild.

How Can You Tell If Your Heating System Is Failing?
Here Are 5 Warning Signs to Help You Decide
The good guys at Texas Air Authorities want homeowners to know that these five warning signs provide clear and convincing evidence that your heating system has gone rogue and needs attention from a skilled and experienced HVAC technician.
- Unexpected noises
- Uneven temperatures throughout the house
- Unusually high energy bills
- More frequent repairs
- Constant system running time
When you need heater repair service in Arlington, TX, and beyond, the sharpshooters at Texas Air Authorities will saddle up and ride on over to your place to investigate—and solve—the case with our crackerjack equipment, training and experience. Plus, you won’t need to rob a bank to get your system up and running smoothly again. We’re the affordable choice in these here parts.
Let’s explore these problems in greater detail.
Are you hearing strange noises?
A steady hum is normal in many heating systems, especially if your unit is older. But you should pay careful attention if your unit suddenly starts making unusual and loud noises. It could be a problem with the motor or blower wheel. If you hear metallic, scraping sounds, you should immediately shut off your system and schedule an inspection with your HVAC contractor. Here’s why: If the blower wheel disconnects from the shaft or falls out of balance, the blower housing could become seriously damaged. Plus, the motor could break away from the mount, which can cause even greater damage.
Are there hot and cold spots throughout your home?
This problem could be caused by a dirty filter or a blocked register—both easy to fix. However, it also could be the result of blocked ductwork or undersized equipment. Your HVAC technician can help you find answers to these problems.
Are your energy bills on the rise?
If you can’t find a logical explanation, such as a harsher winter, for rising heating costs, it could mean your system has become inefficient. If this is the case, it’s time to consider replacing your heating system with a newer, more energy-efficient unit.
Do you have your HVAC contractor on speed dial?
If your repair bills are unusually high, this is another sign that you probably need a new, more energy-efficient system. The good guys at Texas Air Authorities will be happy to help you weigh the evidence and reach the right verdict on a system replacement.
Is your system constantly running?
Sometimes, your system runs longer to keep up with frigid winter conditions. But when your system is constantly running, it’s probably an efficiency issue. You should contact an experienced HVAC technician for routine service and cleaning. This could solve the problem. Other possible reasons for extended system run times are compressor or compressor valve problems, low refrigerant charge or undersized equipment or ductwork.

We’re sworn to serve and protect all of your heating, cooling and indoor air quality needs.

How Much Does It Cost to Replace an HVAC System?
Texas Air Authorities Aims for Quality, Efficiency, Affordability
There are many factors that go into the cost of your new HVAC system, including:
- Equipment type
- SEER rating
- Unit size
- Manner of installation
- Quality of installation
According to the national average, the cost of installing a whole-house HVAC system can range from $4,000 to $12,000. Don’t let those numbers scare you. Your total price will vary, depending on the variables, and Texas Air Authorities will work with you to make a replacement as easy on your budget as possible. In these parts, Texas Air Authorities has the ammunition homeowners need for a superior residential AC replacement service experience in Grand Prairie, TX, and throughout our stomping grounds. We invite you to travel along with us as we explore the cost factors in greater detail.
What type of equipment do I need?
A key factor in the cost of your new system is the type of equipment you need. In many cases, you will have the choice between gas and electric. Our team can help you decide which is the most affordable and efficient for you.
You also may need to decide which system is best for you. Your choices include:
- Split System: This system includes the outdoor unit with a compressor and condenser and the indoor unit with an evaporator coil and blower. Split-system central air conditioning is extremely popular for home cooling and heating. With this system, your indoor unit is often connected to a furnace or heat pump. It is extremely efficient and inexpensive to install if you need an air conditioner but already have a furnace.
- Heat Pump: Don’t let the name fool you. This system heats and cools your home. During cold months, it pulls the heat from the outside air and pumps it into your home. During the long, hot summer, it pushes the warm air out of your home, filling it with cool comfort.
- Ductless Mini-Split: This is a wise choice if your home lacks ductwork or you need a complement to your existing ducted HVAC system. This unit is installed directly into the zone of your home where it’s needed. With a mini-split, you can have up to four indoor units (zones or rooms) for each outdoor unit.
- Packaged Heating/Cooling System: This system is ideal for homes or businesses that don’t have the space for all of the components of split systems. It includes the compressor, condenser and evaporator all in one unit, which is typically located on the roof or near the foundation.
What SEER rating should I choose?
SEER stands for “Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio.” It is the ratio of your air conditioner’s cooling output during a typical cooling season divided by the energy it used in watt-hours. It’s a way to gauge your unit’s efficiency. The higher the SEER, the greater the efficiency. Units with higher SEER ratings are more expensive but also result in greater energy savings over time. At Texas Air Authorities, we offer units with SEER ratings from 14 to 25—great options for every home and every budget.
What size unit is best for my home?
Residential units typically range between 3 tons and 5 tons. The cost of your system will vary, based on the size of your system. We’ll visit your home, assess your space and recommend the size to best handle your heating and cooling needs.
How will my indoor air handler be installed?
Depending on the unique features of your home, your air handler could be installed in a number of ways, including horizontally in the attic or with an upflow in a closet. This could affect the total cost of your system.
How can I make sure my system is installed properly?
We can’t emphasize this enough: Never underestimate the value of a quality installation. An experienced company with skilled technicians often means the difference between reliable, affordable, efficient comfort for years to come and frequent, unexpected, avoidable, costly problems that are a homeowner’s worst nightmare.
Some factors that will affect the reliability of your system—no matter which brand you choose—include:
- How the new system is hung
- How the drain lines are installed
- Whether the supply and return air plenums are the proper size
- How duct modifications, if needed, are made
You also want to choose a contractor that will be around for years to come—when you need reliable work done, including maintenance, repair, warranty work and residential AC replacement service in Mansfield, TX, and beyond.

Is Pet Hair One of Your Pet Peeves?
These 5 Ideas Could Improve Your IAQ
You cherish your family dog or cat, but you also value your ability to breathe easy in your own home. Sometimes, the two don’t exactly go hand in hand. Pet hair and dander can fill your indoor air, adversely impacting your breathing—especially if you suffer from allergies, asthma or other upper respiratory conditions.
At Texas Air Authorities, we understand that you would never utter the words, “Get along, little doggie,” or “Get along, little kitty.” So, we are here to remind you that our arsenal of powerful weapons isn’t limited to your heating replacement service in Hurst, TX, or your air conditioning repair in Arlington, TX. We’re also sharpshooters with your indoor air quality, including air filtration, air ventilation and air purification.
In addition to checking out our high-powered services, we offer these tips to improve your indoor air quality and reduce the amount of pet dander that circulates through your indoor space:
- Groom your pet regularly. Grooming not only cuts down the amount of dander in your home but also makes your precious pet look and feel better. Pet owners should bathe their furry partners every two weeks or so and brush them at least once every other day. You can use special dander wipes to remove dander from your kitty.
- “Groom” your home frequently, too. When you have pets, routine deep cleaning is a must. Regular vacuuming, especially in the areas your pet frequents, can improve your IAQ. Don’t forget that pet dander can settle in out-of-the-way places, too, so it’s important to dust and wipe surfaces throughout your home.
- Clean pet cages, beds and litter boxes frequently. These areas are breeding grounds for dander. Clean cages and litter boxes daily if possible. If you have multiple cats, you should try to clean the litter box twice a day. Pet bedding should be washed each time you bathe your pet.
- Change those air filters. Your HVAC system’s filter is a workhorse that traps dirt, dust, dander and more before it circulates into your home. Clogged or dirty filters allow garbage to enter your HVAC system and foul up the air you breathe. Clogged filters also adversely affect airflow from your vents. Change your filter at least monthly to help keep dander, hair and more under control.
- Consider an air purification or air filtration system. Our systems will help remove dander and other material from your indoor space. Contact us for details!
The good guys at Texas Air Authorities will always have your back when you’re looking for time-tested and innovative ways to protect your indoor air from unwelcome guests. We’re also the team you want on patrol when you need high-caliber heating installation services in Euless, TX, or superior air conditioning repair services in Mansfield, TX.

Selling Your House? Consider These 6 Upgrades
The Good Guys Can Help With No. 1 on the List

Don’t sweat it! The good guys at Texas Air Authorities have gathered convincing evidence about the upgrades you should make for a great return on investment when selling your home. Of course, your HVAC system is a huge part of your home’s energy efficiency.

When you buy a new HVAC system from Texas Air Authorities, our crackerjack team uses its superior skills for a seamless installation.
Savvy Buyers Sniff Out Savings Like These
How much can you save with a new HVAC system? We’ve witnessed this ourselves so our testimony is as credible as it gets: You can save about $200 per year on your energy bills when you replace an old, inefficient system with an Energy Star-rated new model. Plus, you’ll notice a huge improvement in how comfy and cozy your home is.
How old is too old? In general, a well-maintained air conditioner will last about 15 years. But if your AC unit is more than 10 years old, you should start to consider an upgrade, especially if you’re spending large sums on repairs.
Other steps you can take to improve your home’s energy efficiency are: insulate your attic, install new windows and update your water heater.
Of course, not all upgrades will add resale value to your property.
Here are 6 we recommend:
- Improve energy efficiency. The good guys at Texas Air will be more than happy to ride on over and help you upgrade your HVAC system.
- Focus on your curb appeal. You have just one chance to make a first impression with homebuyers. Make sure the exterior of your home is neat and attractive. You don’t have to spend a lot to make changes that will impress. Give your front door a fresh coat of paint. Plant flowers. Trim bushes and keep your lawn lush.
- Neutral is best. Choose white or soft paint colors and keep it simple and modern when upgrading tiles, faucets, lighting, hardware and flooring. Flashy or bold choices can scare away potential buyers.
- Improve lighting. Poorly lit rooms feel small and claustrophobic. Strive for bright and airy to make rooms feel spacious.
- Remodel the kitchen. Modern appliances, granite countertops, plenty of storage space and a functional/friendly island are huge selling points. But you don’t have to spend a lot of money to update your kitchen. Focusing on colors and textures can spruce up the space and make it feel like the heart of your home. A minor kitchen remodel can have an 87 percent ROI.
- Make over the bathroom. According to some statistics, a minor bathroom remodel can result in a 102 percent ROI. Regrout tile. Recaulk the shower, tub and toilet areas. Replace the toilet. You’re done!

Protect You and Your Loved Ones From This Silent Killer
9 Steps to Prevent Carbon Monoxide Buildup, Poisoning
Here at Texas Air Authorities, we’re all about keeping the peace when it comes to your cooling, heating and indoor air quality needs. We believe part of our job is educating you about the potential bad guys out there that can jeopardize your health and safety. One of the most insidious threats is carbon monoxide.
Carbon monoxide is an odorless, invisible gas that can invade your home and harm your loved ones. It cannot be ignored because it is a potential killer. The good news is that we’re here to provide you with some of the ammunition necessary to keep everyone out of the line of fire. One way to do that is to rely on our trusted heater repair service in Arlington, TX, or wherever you call home. (More on that later.)
Common Household Appliances Can Generate CO
Carbon monoxide is produced when natural gas, propane, kerosene, gasoline and other fuels are not completely burned. The most common source is exhaust from vehicles. However, this deadly gas also can be discharged by furnaces, kerosene heaters, gas and charcoal grills, small gas engines—even camp lanterns and stoves.
Roughly 400 people die each year from carbon monoxide poisoning, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Although we are all susceptible, infants, people 65 or older and those with asthma and other breathing problems are the most vulnerable. Your risk is higher during the winter season.
When your furnace or other unit is not properly adjusted and used in an area with poor ventilation, carbon monoxide can build up in your bloodstream and replace your supply of oxygen. This can result in asphyxiation.
Keep Close Watch for These Warning Signs
You should seek immediate medical help if you notice these common symptoms:
- Fatigue, nausea or vomiting
- Severe and persistent dizziness or headaches
- Shortness of breath
- Loss of consciousness
- Relief from symptoms when you leave your home
Remember: carbon monoxide is an odorless, invisible gas. So it’s important to act when you notice these systems. Make sure everyone is out of the house, call the Poison Control Center at 800.222.1222 (or 911) and seek medical attention immediately.
Take Preventive Action
Here are some of the steps you can take to avoid the buildup of carbon monoxide:
- Make sure your home is equipped with smoke detectors and Underwriters Laboratory-approved carbon monoxide monitors on every level. Choose a regular time to check the batteries, such as when you adjust your clocks in the spring and fall.
- Evacuate immediately and call 911 if your CO monitor alarms continuously. If it alarms off and on, change the batteries.
- Evacuate immediately and call the Poison Control Center if you experience symptoms of CO poisoning.
- Schedule regular service for your heating system. The crackerjack sharpshooters at Texas Air Authorities will be happy to ride on over and perform this important task.
- Schedule routine checkups for your water heater and any other appliances fueled by gas, oil, wood or coal, too.
- Never use a generator, grill or other gasoline- or charcoal-powered devices inside your home, garage, basement or near a window. Your generator should be at least 20 feet away from your home when in operation.
- Never operate vehicles inside the garage, even when doors are open.
- Never heat your home with the gas stove.
- Don’t burn anything in a fireplace or stove without proper ventilation.

Four Ways to Woo Your Heating System
Keep the Romance Alive With Help From Our Crackerjack Team
Roses are red
Violets are blue
If your furnace fails,
You’ll be blue, too!
OK. We confess. It’s probably not as memorable as these classic lines from Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s “Sonnet 43”: “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.” But the good guys at Texas Air Authorities are rather proud of our first attempt at a love poem.
It’s that time of year again—time to romance your best guy or gal with flowers, candy, a fancy dinner, soft music, glasses of the bubbly and, if you’re as talented (cough, cough) as we are, an original poem expressing your undying love. After all, you should never take for granted or neglect the one you love. And, while this might not be at the top of your priority list, it’s also important not to neglect your heating system or take it for granted. Failure to give your unit the attention it deserves can result in an unexpected breakup and a desperate scramble for heater replacement service in Mansfield, TX or wherever you call home.
We’ll Do the Hard Work
At Texas Air Authorities, we have the skills and experience to give your furnace or heat pump the love and attention it needs for a long-lasting relationship. Our routine maintenance service includes the thorough inspections and tune-ups that result in reliable, affordable, efficient and cozy comfort through the chilly months here in the Arlington area. When you tap into one of our maintenance plans, we call out the cavalry to flag any minor infractions before they escalate into major (and more expensive) offenses. Our technicians are the sharpshooters you want on the case to keep your heating system running as smoothly and affordably as possible. They will pinpoint potential problems and choose the weapon needed for a crackerjack solution.
If you count cozy, reliable warmth among your true loves, here are just some of the ways you can show appreciation to your heating system:
- Wrap up this present. Give your system a new, sparkling clean filter to replace that old, dirty one. This will keep your system running efficiently and free of gunk that can affect your indoor air quality. Plus, a new filter can extend your HVAC unit’s life and help cut energy use by 5 to 10 percent.
- Plan a date night. Schedule a rendezvous between one of our sharpshooter technicians and your HVAC unit. You’ll be glad you played matchmaker.
- Avoid one-night stands. Build upon “date night” with a maintenance plan that will bring our technician back to your doorstep regularly. We won’t bring candy and flowers. But we’ll bring all of the sweet treats (and sweet deals) needed to keep your HVAC system up and running this year—and for years to come.
- Clear the dance floor. Make sure air vents in your home are not blocked by curtains, furniture or other large items. These items can prevent proper ventilation and can result in unreliable, inefficient, costlier heat.
If your heart has been broken by a home comfort provider whose sweet talk led to nothing but broken promises, trust the good guys at Texas Air Authorities. We’re faithful, true and darn good at what we do. From our top-notch residential heater replacement service in Grand Prairie, TX to our superior air conditioning repair, replacement and installation service in Mansfield, TX, we’re the team you’ll fall in love with—over and over again.

Celebrate Another Championship Season With Your HVAC System
Our ‘Medical Staff’ Has the Winning Moves to Make It Happen

Top 10 Reasons Your Furnace Lacks the Fire Power It Once Generated
Is Your Furnace Fading?
A key to good police work is doing your homework so you’re prepared for anything the bad guys may throw at you. It’s a strategy that will serve homeowners and businesses well, too, when they’re determined to keep their furnaces on the straight and narrow this season.
Don’t worry. The good guys at Texas Air Authorities aren’t going to assign any homework. We won’t schedule quizzes, tests or final exams about heater repair service in Grand Prairie, TX, and beyond, either. But we are going to provide you with a quick lesson on the common problems that can occur with your furnace. As a result, you’ll know what to keep watch for to prevent minor furnace scuffles from escalating into major skirmishes or, worse yet, total breakdowns.
Problem 1: Routine maintenance. Routine maintenance helps prevent unexpected problems and system breakdowns. These annual inspections allow our skilled and experienced technicians to uncover little issues before they escalate into bigger (and more costly) problems. TLC also keeps your furnace running efficiently, affordably and reliably.
Problem 2: Dirty filters. When it comes to your furnace’s filter, procrastination is a no-no. Dirty or clogged filters restrict airflow, forcing your furnace to work overtime. Plus, a dirty filter can damage the limit switch, which controls your furnace’s fan.
Problem 3: Wear and tear. When it comes to your furnace, age matters. Older furnaces are more susceptible to wear and tear, which can wreak havoc on airflow, heat control and more.
Problem 4: Thermostat trouble. A malfunctioning thermostat can affect your comfort and your furnace’s fan.
Problem 5: Cycling. When your furnace cycles on and off frequently, it could mean the filter needs to be cleaned or replaced. It also could mean the thermostat isn’t set properly or there are problems with your furnace’s airflow.
Problem 6: Inadequate heat. If your furnace is not large enough for your space, it might not be producing the amount of warmth you need.
Problem 7: Blower on the run. If your blower won’t stop running, it could mean there’s a problem with the limit switch.
Problem 8: Strange noises. If you hear unusual noises such as rattles, squeaks or rumbles, your furnace may be experiencing a mechanical issue. A clogged burner or airflow problems can cause unusual sounds, too.
Problem 9: Pilot or ignition trouble. Issues with the pilot or ignition can adversely affect the amount of heat in your home or business. Clogs, drafts and thermocouple problems are likely causes.
Problem 10: No heat at all. When you lose heat completely, round up the usual suspects: power, gas, pilot light or thermostat setting trouble.
If you experience these or other problems with your furnace, call the good guys at Texas Air Authorities. We’ll ride to your rescue in one of our fully stocked vehicles. We’ll get the job done right—the first time, every time. We’ll never talk you into a costlier replacement when one of our expert repairs will solve the case. However, you can also count on us when the best solution is heater replacement service in Grand Prairie, TX or wherever you call home.

Get Pumped Up to Fight Back Against Winter’s Chill
Heat Pump vs. Furnace? Weigh the Evidence
Brrrr! It’s been several weeks since a lousy thief snuck into town and stole our toasty warm outdoor weather. Here at Texas Air Authorities, we’ve issued an all points bulletin for our No. 1 suspect: Mother Nature. So, please keep your eyes and ears open. If you see her lurking about, give the good guys at Texas Air Authorities a call. We’ll bring her to justice.
In the meantime, we hope our friends in Arlington and nearby territories are protecting your homesteads from her chilly handiwork. If that means you’re on the lookout for a smart, economical way to keep your indoor space cozy and warm, you might want to consider a heat pump. At Texas Air Authorities, we are the team you want on the case for all of your heat pump weaponry—from heat pump replacement and installation in Arlington, TX, to heat pump repair service in Grand Prairie, TX.
When you’re in the market for a new heater, it’s natural to weigh the evidence for a heat pump vs. a furnace. One important factor to consider is that Texas winters aren’t usually that harsh. Furnaces offer a lot of firepower, sometimes too much firepower. Our skilled and experienced technicians will be happy to explore the pros and cons of heat pumps and furnaces with you, paying close attention to your specific location, indoor space, budget and comfort needs.
Know the Difference
You might be asking yourself: What is the difference is between a furnace and a heat pump? Good question! A furnace uses fuel to create its own source of heat. It can be expensive to operate and could be more equipment than you need if you live where temperatures rarely dip below freezing.
Instead of using fuel, a heat pump pulls warmth from the outside air and uses it to heat your indoor space. A heat pump is a popular choice here in the south and coastal areas where winters are mild. However, it won’t perform properly when temperatures dip below freezing.
The typical lifespan of a heat pump is slightly less—10 to 15 years for a heat pump compared to 20 to 30 years for a furnace. However, regular maintenance visits from Texas Air Authorities and proper care can keep a heat pump up and running efficiently and affordably for a long time.
Plenty of Pump Action
A heat pump is a great source of energy-efficient heat, saving you money on your energy bills without compromising your comfort. It also serves double duty, taking on the role of your air conditioner during the summer months. It can be cheaper to install, especially if your home lacks the ventilation that a furnace needs to operate properly. Plus, a heat pump runs quietly and does not put your family at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
We’ve highlighted many of the advantages of a heat pump. However, there are pros and cons of both heating systems. That’s why the good guys at Texas Air Authorities offer both heat pumps and furnaces. We want our customers to have the choices they deserve and the services they need, including heating repair in Kennedale, TX, and beyond. Interested in learning more?
