A typical Texas summer workday for one of our air conditioner professionals is long, hot, and dirty. All day we repair broken air conditioners, recharge leaking refrigerant, replace motors, or deliver the bad news that a homeowner needs a new air conditioning unit.
In many instances, the air conditioners we repair are not working due to years of neglect from things like never changing filters, ignoring preventative maintenance, or not fixing the air conditioning unit when it starts performing poorly.
At Decatur Heat & Air, we stress the importance of routine heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) preventive maintenance with each of our Keller area customers. Preventative maintenance not only guards against breakdowns, but every study on maintaining heating and cooling units shows they operate more efficiently and last much longer than units never serviced.
Our knowledgeable and experienced team can offer you an affordable HVAC service contract so you do not have to worry about keeping your air conditioning unit maintained.
The heating and air conditioning publication The News reported that leaking ductwork in a home “could easily be leaking one-third or more of . . . conditioned air into the attic or building envelope before it ever reaches its final destination. The result is an HVAC system that works harder and longer, and consumes much more energy, to heat and cool a home.”
If more than a third of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system’s conditioned air is lost, imaging how long your system must run to get your Texas home comfortable. Then consider how much extra that leaking ductwork is costing you month after month all year long!
Decatur Heat & Air has the tools and expertise to test your Keller home’s ductwork to find the leaks, seal them, and stop the loss of money and energy. If your home is more than 20 years old, it may be time for air duct cleaning to make sure the air you and your family breathe is free from dust and mold.
Call our team at 940-627-1616. We can check the condition and cleanliness of your home’s air duct system and offer a plan to keep your ducts dust-free and efficient. Request air duct service online today.
Providing commercial heating and cooling services requires a wide range of skills and expertise. A commercial operation could be anything from a neighborhood bistro to a large shopping center or from a huge distribution center to a medical laboratory.

Turn to a professional service provider such as Decatur Heat & Air to help you find the right heating and cooling solution for your commercial application.
Finding the best heating system for your commercial business can be challenging. You’ll want evenly distributed heat to maintain your employee and customer comfort levels. You may also require a tight temperature range for particular manufacturing or computer equipment. Many Keller commercial operations rely on commercial furnaces, boilers, or heat pumps to provide the right amount of heat throughout a facility. Talk with our trained professionals about the most efficient solution for you. Call Decatur Heat & Air at 940-627-1616 today.

There are some rooms in your Texas house that have their own specific temperature needs. Maybe it is a wine closet or a gaming room. Perhaps it is your bedroom. Maybe it is a room that needs to be cool all the time even when the rest of the house is warm.
With one air conditioning unit controlling your whole house, there is no way to make one room cooler than the others. But with the expanding US ductless system , or mini split, market, a ductless heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system is now the easiest and most affordable way to add a separate heating and air conditioning unit to that room.
Decatur Heat & Air has seen the ductless system market in Keller expand over the last few years with most homeowners adding ductless units to family rooms. Between the TV, video games, and all the people inside laughing and playing, the room can get very stuffy. A mini split system gives the family room its own heating and cooling control so you can always keep that room comfortable.
Do you have a room that needs its own heating and cooling? Call our professional team today at 940-627-1616 and see how affordable extra heating and cooling is for your special room. Request ductless system service online today.
Everyone loves a breath of fresh air. In today’s highly indoor world, it can be a challenge to maintain indoor air quality. Decatur Heat & Air offers several services geared toward this challenge for Keller homeowners including air duct cleaning services.
When our team arrives at your Texas home, we will examine your air duct system and use special equipment to loosen, vacuum, and clean your air ducts. In most homes, we find dirt, dust, pet dander and other debris throughout an air duct system. In addition, we are able to remove things you can’t see such as bacteria, viruses, and dust mites.
Over time, all of this material can also build up on other components of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, and as part of our duct cleaning services, our team will also clean condenser coils, registers, exchangers, and diffusers. The complete maintenance package that includes duct cleaning may help you make your entire HVAC system more efficient, reducing your energy bills in the long run.
Help improve the indoor air quality in your home as well as potentially affect the efficiency of your HVAC system with good maintenance practices such as air duct cleaning.

Geothermal Heat Pumps
The worldwide geothermal heat pump market is expected to rise to over 6 percent per year by 2024. Homeowners in Texas and across the country are opting for high-efficiency geothermal heating and cooling systems as an alternative to their conventional gas or electrical residential units.
A geothermal heat pump rejects and extracts heat from the ground instead of the atmosphere as is done with typical heating and cooling units. Condenser heat is carried through underground pipes from the geothermal heat pump and distributed into the soil a few feet below the surface.
Because the ground is a consistent temperature year-round, the heating and cooling equipment does not have wild swings in outdoor temperature as with air source heat pumps. This consistent soil temperature is one of the ways the geothermal heating system achieves such high operational efficiencies.
Call 940-627-1616 and we can show you some of the geothermal systems Decatur Heat & Air has installed here in Keller. We would be happy to discuss if a new energy-efficient geothermal heat pump system is right for your home. Request geothermal heat pump service online today.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) Energy Saver page advises that a “heat pump can reduce your electricity use for heating by approximately 50 percent compared to electric resistance heating.” That means a heat pump could cut your Texas electric heating bill in half!
That is an amazing savings. In cities like Keller that often see utility prices rise in the winter, that is a lot of money back in your pocket each month. Decatur Heat & Air works with homeowners and small office building managers to calculate the annual savings of replacing their old, electric unit with a new heat pump system.
We walk them through how the different heat pumps on the market affect their installation costs and their long-term savings. For example, if buyers consider mini split heat pumps with very high cooling Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) ratings, the utility savings compared to the old units is even more amazing.
If it is time to replace your existing unit or you need a system for a renovation, let us show you the possible savings. Call us at 940-627-1616 and see what savings are possible for your home. Request heat pump service online today.
Did you remember to turn off the heating or air conditioning when you left for work? Did you leave lights on in your home that will stay on all day while no one is there? A growing number of Texas homeowners can definitively answer these questions with a quick swipe of their phones. They have taken advantage of the newest home automation platforms that integrate their heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) units, lights, electric meter, and even their home entertainment systems with a smartphone app.
Decatur Heat & Air began offering smart home systems a few years ago when our Keller customers told us they needed more ways to control their home’s energy consumption. We found a lot of families rush out the door in the morning going to work and school, leaving lights or the air conditioning on.
Adding Wi-Fi and home automation features let them leave the house as normal, but once they get to their destination and remember what they left on, their smart home app allows them turn everything off even if they left hours ago.
Indoor Air Quality
Breathing is something we all take for granted but is absolutely vital to our existence moment to moment. Here in Keller, most of us stay indoors nearly all the time, so the quality of the indoor air we breathe should be important to us. Our team at Decatur Heat & Air wants to help you be sure your indoor air quality is safe and healthy.
In nearly all indoor environments, dust, off-gassing from paints and carpets, and other pollutants are present in the air we breathe. Sometimes smoke and pet dander can be added to the mix. In most heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, an air filter can remove some of these pollutants. Some Texas homeowners may choose to have a high-efficiency HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter to remove even smaller particulates.
Indoor air quality problems may result in discomfort for you and your family or, in some cases, chronic long-term health issues like allergies and asthma. When you have one of our professionals come out and test your indoor air quality, you may discover areas that require remediation. New filtration systems, air purifiers, duct cleaning services, and other solutions may improve your situation.
Call our professionals at Decatur Heat & Air. Our number is 940-627-1616 and our trained experts are standing by to help remedy poor indoor air quality issues. Request indoor air quality service online today.
Just like your car requires regular oil changes and tire rotations to keep it running smoothly, your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system will work much better if you take care of it on a regular basis. The professionals at Decatur Heat & Air recommend a biannual maintenance checkup to keep your Keller home comfortable year-round.
The best times to schedule an HVAC maintenance service call are during the spring and fall. These are the seasons when your furnace and air conditioner are probably not in full operation yet, which means they are the perfect times to get them ready for the hot summer or cold winter. In addition, these are the seasons when HVAC professionals are not constantly under the gun with emergency service calls, which allows them to provide excellent service at an affordable price.
When you call your HVAC team in Texas, you’ll be getting a complete maintenance package that includes a thorough inspection, cleaning and tune-up. That means all your components will be lubricated, tightened and checked for wear and potential malfunction. In the long-run, this inexpensive service call may save you an expensive emergency repair call, reduce your energy bills, and lengthen the life of your system.

We rely on our heating and cooling systems for a lot of different things. If they do not keep us warm, cool, and comfortable, our instinct is to change the settings. This can cost more, wear out your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, and actually not be the best thing to accomplish those goals.
If you have been dealing with a sticky, unpleasant Texas home environment and rising heating and cooling bills, it may be time for you to look into the world of whole-house dehumidifiers.
These units at first glance may seem to only pull moisture out of your Keller home and not much else. However, when you get rid of the excess humidity, you also get rid of excess allergens, prevent mold and mildew growth, and reduce the stress on your overall HVAC system. You may agree that these are all very good goals, but what about the logistics of setting up a whole-house dehumidifier system?
That is where our professionals at Decatur Heat & Air can come alongside you. We can answer your questions at 940-627-1616 and would be happy to make solid recommendations to meet your unique needs. Request whole-house dehumidifier service online today.
You rely on your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system for a wide variety of different things, not ending at providing heating and cooling. You also depend on your HVAC system for indoor air quality, ventilation, and well-balanced humidity levels. When these things are not met, you can run into problems. Additionally, you may see your HVAC bills rise.
One simple change to make is installing a whole-house humidifier. These units, as their names imply, balance the humidity levels in your Texas home much more efficiently than a traditional system can on its own.
They also can improve your indoor air quality by decreasing the number of allergens in it, prevent health issues such as common colds and irritated skin, and offer many other benefits depending on your situation in Keller.
If you are interested in learning more or are ready to invest in your whole-house humidifier, our Decatur Heat & Air professionals at 940-627-1616 are willing to help. Request whole-house humidifier service online today.
Zone Control Systems
Imagine waking up in the morning in a nice, cozy bedroom and getting ready in a warm bathroom. As you head downstairs for your morning cup of coffee, your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system lowers the upstairs temperature until just before bedtime while the kitchen is comfortable for the next hour. Once you head out the door, the entire house goes into energy-conservation mode while you are away.
That’s a very real scenario for Keller homeowners who have invested in zone control systems. One of the newer types of HVAC technologies available,zone control systems feature multiple thermostats that manage temperatures in various areas of your home. When heating or cooling is called for, a set of dampers automatically opens and closes to redirect your cooling or heating to the calling zone.
In the past, managing this task may have required physically opening and closing vents, which can damage a conventional HVAC system if doing so restricts air circulation too heavily.
Our Decatur Heat & Air trained experts can tell you all about zone control systems and how they can benefit your Texas home.
