Maintenance

Owning, or even sometimes renting, a home in Mesquite, TX, requires general maintenance to keep your investment in working order. It’s really all about being prepared. Per Benjamin Franklin, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Maintaining your home’s systems and appliances wards off emergency situations and costly repairs while extending your equipment’s life. Take the time and money to perform general maintenance on a regular basis. Many of the maintenance services require the knowledge, skills, and tools of a professional. During the maintenance or service call, our technician will make any necessary repairs and/or alert you of a possible situation. Call Walker Air Conditioning & Heating to assist you in maintaining any of the following or to answer any questions you may have:

Furnace Maintenance

For furnaces, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed in the fall. The purpose is to keep your system running at top efficiency throughout the season, i.e., to keep you having heat when you need it. Our technician will check and clean (depending on whether you have a furnace or boiler) all the connections, controls, sensors, ignitor, ducts, pipes, burners, valves, motors, thermostat(s), and smoke/carbon-monoxide detectors, and instruct you on anything you could do between our service visits. As a rule of thumb, furnace filters need to be changed every three months or as needed, which is something you can do yourself with the correct filters.

Air Conditioner Maintenance

For air conditioners, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed in the spring. Our professional technician will check and clean the connections, coils, blower components, lines, refrigerant, drain, fuses, and thermostat(s), as well as lubricate all working parts. Maintenance you can do yourself between service visits is to remove any yard debris or vegetation from the top and sides of your outdoor air conditioner unit, as well as to keep it covered with an air conditioner cover or tarp in the winter.

Heat Pump Maintenance

For heat pumps, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed in the fall, same as furnaces and boilers. Our professional technician will check and clean ducts, filters, blower, indoor coil, ducts, refrigerant, electric terminals, connections, motors, and belts, as well as lubricate all working parts. Be sure to change or clean the filter every three months or as needed. You can also clean the outdoor coils whenever they seem dirty, and keep yard debris and vegetation away from the unit.

Whole-House Humidifier Maintenance

For whole-house humidifiers, an annual service tune-up and cleaning is recommended, usually performed at the same time as your furnace tune-up and cleaning. Our professionals include this maintenance along with the furnace appointment. Typically there isn’t much in the way of maintenance; however, our technician will change your humidifier pad and clean any mineral buildup you may have (in the case of hard water). Ask our technician to show you how to dissolve the buildup on your own every few months to keep your humidifier working at top efficiency.

Air-Filtration System Maintenance

For air-filtration systems, regular maintenance is something your can perform on your own. Maintenance on an air-filtration system usually just means changing or cleaning the filter every three to nine months. But you should check with the manufacturer’s specific recommendations. Changing or cleaning your filter on a regular basis will ensure the best filtration for your home as well as extend the life of the system. If you need any assistance or would like to install an air-filtration system, feel free to talk with one of our professionals at Walker Air Conditioning & Heating.

We woke to no AC and called Walker Air conditioning before they opened up for business and promptly recieved a return... call. I spoke with their office and explained our ac issues the had me scheduled for an early afternoon appointment the same day. They called when they were on the way and were there on time. The technician was friendly and polite and quickly assessed the AC system and explained everything to me before they made the repairs. The showed me the damage part and the replacement one and explained the warranty. They even took the time to explain the basic system maintenance needed to keep my unit up and running efficiently. Thanks The Olson'sread more

Since our AC started having problems almost a year ago, we have gone through horrible experiences with four different... AC companies...to the point of total cynicism about the industry as whole. I found out about Walker on the radio and from my initial conversation with Cory, I had a feeling these guys were different...I was right. Cory walked me through every step of the process, keeping his word at every turn. The installation team performed the installation with military professionalism. Then a couple of weeks later, the quality control team, lead by Derek and his new team member, Derrione came to the house and went through the entire system with a fine-tooth comb, making small adjustments to make sure everything running optimally...They were professional, courteous, and went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. To say the Walker Team has restored my faith on the existence of honest brokers in the industry is an understatement. Thank you guys!read more

We used Walker in 2011 when we moved and needed new HVAC systems. They installed 2 units and did a great job. We have... maintained an annual service contract and used them for any service repairs. They typically are able to get me on the schedule within a day or two.read more

We have a unique home layout due to add-ons done over the years and almost no room was comfortably heated or cooled.... When it was time to replace our old unit, we got multiple bids, and, in the end, we chose Walker AC & Hearing. Mark and Cory thoroughly discussed our needs and designed a system adding new returns and improved duct paths. The new system is extremely quiet and energy efficient. Best of all, our entire house is finally comfortable! I highly recommend Walker AC & Hearing.read more

We have used Walker for years because the technicians who have serviced our properties have always been extremely... competent, courteous and punctual. In fact, we have developed a personal relationship with the senior technician who has serviced our accounts for years, which says a lot for a service provider and its employees. Of equal importance, Walker’s prices are quite reasonable.read more
