When the weather heats up and you turn on the air conditioning, do you ever say “just last one more summer” to yourself? A lot of people do.
We talk to many homeowners in Texas with old and worn-out heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, hoping their air conditioning unit can limp through one more season. You do not need that kind of stress, and you do not need to come home here in Haslett on the hottest day to find the air conditioner has finally died.
Today’s air conditioning units are more affordable than ever, and with new high-efficiency compressor technology, you will see an immediate drop in your electric bill with a new system. Modern air conditioning units are smaller, more efficient, and run quieter than those made just a few years ago. There is no better time to replace an aging air conditioning unit.
Decatur Heat & Air can work with you to find the air conditioner that fits inside your home and within your budget.
The air ducts hidden behind your walls keep hot and cold air flowing to each of the rooms in your Haslett home. Over time, air ducts can get dusty, moldy, and, in some cases, even begin to leak air. If the air from the vents smells bad, if you see condensation on the ceiling, or if you hear whistling in the walls, you likely have a problem with the ductwork.
Duct cleaning and vent cleaning are sometimes necessary to bring the entire heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system back to peak performance. Neglected systems that rarely get service or filter changes can accumulate mold and debris in the air duct making the home dusty and smelly. When HVAC ductwork comes loose or leaks, conditioned air is released behind the walls, wasting electricity. Older homes in Texas are notorious for leaking or poorly insulated air ducts.
If your air ducts are not as quiet as they should be or if you are having mold and dust problems in the house, call Decatur Heat & Air at 940-627-1616 so we can take a look. Let us work with you to fix the duct problems in your home. Request air duct service online today.

Installing a new split air conditioner in your Texas home can be costly, labor intensive, and very intrusive. It is one thing to replace an older split air conditioning unit; it’s quite another to install one where there is no place to mount the air handler or run ductwork. But there is a way to add heating and cooling to a room without the mess.
Ductless systems, or mini splits, are small-capacity units that mount on the wall instead of in a closet or above the ceiling. A ductless heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system needs no ductwork, as the air moves through the unit on the wall eliminating the need to tear apart walls to install the unit.
Homeowners have expressed concerns over rising utility rates, but ductless mini splits are some of the most efficient heating and cooling units on the market, reaching Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) ratings for cooling well above 20. You will see your power bills drop right away once your ductless unit is installed.
Ductless systems can fit almost anywhere and we at Decatur Heat & Air have installed them all over Haslett. If you have a room that needs its own HVAC unit, call us at 940-627-1616. Request ductless system service online today.
Air ducts are an important part of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system in your Texas home. Air ducts carry the air that has been heated by your furnace to warm your family throughout the winter, and they transport cool air from your air conditioner through your house in the heat of the summer.
Keeping your air ducts clean is a priority for our professionals at Decatur Heat & Air here in Haslett. Our services include an inspection of your air duct system, equipment that vacuums out the dirt and dust found throughout your air ducts, and a flush and final cleaning as well. Our team will also clean defusers, cooling coils, grills, and registers when we provide duct cleaning services.
A wide variety of debris can be found in your air ducts including rodent droppings, dust and associated dust mites, mold and mildew, and bacteria and viruses. If you have pets, dander can accumulate in your vents. And if you have recently done any remodeling, you may have chemical off-gassing from carpets, paints, and other materials affecting your air quality.
Air duct cleaning services are designed to address all these things that can build up in your ducts. If blockages are significant, you may restrict airflow and make your HVAC system work harder than it has to.
For additional questions about air duct cleaning services, call Decatur Heat & Air at 940-627-1616. We are waiting by the phones to help you make the best HVAC decisions for your home. Request duct cleaning service online s today.
Geothermal Heat Pumps
Texas homeowners seeking the highest efficiency heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are exploring geothermal heat pump installations. Most heating and air conditioning units reject or absorb heat from the atmosphere through a condensing unit, the outdoor part of the air conditioning system. Geothermal heating systems reject and absorb heat from the ground through underground pipes instead of through the air.
Because the outside air temperatures change throughout the year, a standard heat pump’s ability to reject heat to the air also changes. Since a geothermal system rejects heat to the ground and not the air, the unit sees consistent ground temperatures all year long.
The steady ground temperature gives geothermal heat pumps a much higher operating efficiency compared to a unit that rejects heat to the air. Geothermal heating units are also nearly silent as there is no condenser fan. Decatur Heat & Air customers who have had trouble with corrosion of their condensing units often opt for geothermal heating and cooling because there is no outdoor unit to corrode.
Like most heat pumps installed in Texas, yours probably runs nonstop all year cooling your home in the summer and heating it in the winter. We expect our heat pump systems to keep us comfortable no matter what the weather.
When the equipment fails, it is a major emergency. Unfortunately, most Haslett homeowners have high expectations of their heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) heat pump, but rarely do anything to make sure the unit is tuned up and running efficiently.
That is where Decatur Heat & Air comes in. We love keeping heat pumps running strong including the newer, high-efficiency mini split heat pumps. We offer affordable heat pump maintenance agreement plan services like filter changes and seasonal tune-ups.
During our service visits, we thoroughly check each heat pump system component for signs of wear and advise if anything needs replacing, before the part fails and the entire heat pump shuts down.
Call 940-627-1616 to speak to one of our experienced and certified team members. We are always happy to come out for a repair, routine service, or to help you select a new heat pump for your home or small business. Request heat pump service online today.
A recent survey showed higher than average demand for new smart home systems here in Texas. Instead of using a timer to turn off and on the lights and air conditioning while you are away, home automation allows Haslett homeowners to turn on, not only lights and air conditioning, but music systems, burglar alarms, and even warm up the oven through an app on your smartphone.
Smart home systems allow you to set your home’s temperature while you are away and, with a swipe of the app, your home prepares for your return. The app sees your distance from home and knows exactly when to turn the cooling on, so your home is cool when you arrive without the air conditioning running longer than needed.
You will get a reminder when your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) filters need to be changed, and if something is wrong with your system, one of the home automation devices sends an alert to your phone.
Smart home installations are one of Decatur Heat & Air’s most popular service requests. Our customers are wowed by the technology and thrilled with the results. Call us at 940-627-1616 for a home automation survey today. Request home automation service online today.

It is easy to notice heating and cooling problems when they are obvious. Dripping walls and broken units get attention fast. However, lesser problems such as excess humidity can get ignored your Texas home. What should you know about humidity in your home and when is it time to do something about it?
When the summer hits, humidity levels tend to rise with the heat. This creates an environment where allergens thrive. Mold and mildew can also start creeping into your Haslett home. One of the best ways to combat these irritants is by investing in a whole-house dehumidifier.
Whole-house dehumidifiers work together with your heating and cooling system to remove excess moisture. In addition to preventing mold, mildew and allergens, they can also keep your home cooler, reduce your heating and cooling costs, and remove dust from your home before it settles throughout the house. If you have pets, it can help with the dander as well.
As soon as you hear that unmistakable crack and your power shuts down, you probably start wondering what to do about the food in your refrigerator, how hot (or cold) the house might become over the next few hours, and whether you have clean clothes for the next workday. electricity is one of those things you take for granted until you do not have it anymore.
If you live in Haslett, Texas, you know how frequently storms roll in. You are probably too familiar with the inconvenience that a power outage brings. Our team at Decatur Heat & Air recommends you consider investing in a standby, also called whole-house, generator that can power your home in the event of an outage.
A whole-house generator is simply a standby generator that is the right size for your unique home. By installing a transfer switch, you can automatically move your appliances and designated other systems to your generator from your main circuit board.
Smaller homes with limited electrical needs obviously have different electrical needs than larger homes. Different homes have different needs, so there is no-size-fits-all system.
Call Decatur Heat & Air at 940-627-1616 to get the scoop on whole-house generators. Our team is here to provide information and answer your questions. Request whole-house generator service today.
Consistently low humidity levels are not only a nuisance. They can negatively impact your health, home, and comfort in ways you may not realize until you no longer feel well, your wood floors shrink, or you can’t seem to keep your hands soft.
Maybe you can’t shake a series of colds that has been plaguing you all winter or the air feels sharp when you breathe. All these and more are symptoms of low humidity in Texas homes.
One of the best ways to bring these levels back and keep them balanced is by installing a whole-house humidifier. This system will help boost your humidity levels and circulates balanced air through your Haslett home. Naturally, the optimum choice will depend on your existing HVAC system and what will fit your particular needs.
Zone Control Systems
Have you ever envisioned imaginary dollar bills just floating out of your home when you think about cooling or heating rooms not in use? This is actually what figuratively happens when there are specific parts of your Haslett home you don not use much but still heat and cool. Ideally, the rooms you are currently using are comfortable while the rest of your home is conserving energy. Up until recently, that was a difficult goal to achieve.
However, zone control systems are available today that allow you to do a better job of customizing your temperatures. Part of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, a zone control system allows you to operate several thermostats, each controlling the temperature of a different zone of your home. A zone control system automatically opens and closes the appropriate dampers to direct heating or cooling just where you want it in your Texas home.
Our team at Decatur Heat & Air can provide more details and share the cost savings you can expect by installing a zone control system. Our trained professionals are well-versed in how to properly install, repair, and maintain a zone control system so it works effectively with your current HVAC system.
