When your air conditioner starts to make strange noises, does not cool well, or the air coming out of the vents smells strange, it is time to call a professional. Air conditioning problems do not get better with time and rarely go away if ignored.
Unfortunately, a large percentage of Krum homeowners brush aside small air conditioning problems, hoping they will resolve on their own. When a small problem is ignored month after month and becomes a catastrophic equipment failure, the repair can be extremely expensive and in some cases, the equipment can’t be repaired. When repair is not an option, it is time to buy a new air conditioning unit.
Whether it is a small fix or complete heating and air unit replacement, Decatur Heat & Air has experienced professionals ready to help. But before things start to fail or break down completely, let us offer an affordable preventative maintenance agreement plan.
With our Texas company handling your HVAC maintenance, you never have to worry about unexpected costs or degrading system performance. Call us at 940-627-1616 and rest easy knowing your HVAC unit will be working at peak efficiency for many seasons to come. Request air conditioning service online today.
Do you hear a hissing or rumbling sound coming from the air vents in your Texas home? Or maybe the air seems to come out of the vents too slowly and your rooms are not as cool or as warm as they should be? Both of these problems are a result of improperly sized ductwork. Older homes in Krum are notorious for having ductwork problems, and Decatur Heat & Air has at least one air duct replacement project every week.
A functioning air conditioning unit is only part of your home’s heating and air system. Once the air is cooled, the ductwork distributes the conditioned air throughout the house before returning it to the unit. Ductwork needs to be properly sized using a duct sizing calculator.
Ductwork that is too small hisses and can cause pressure on the air handler fan leading to premature failure. When the duct is too big, it does not have enough velocity to push the air across the room.
If things do not sound right from your duct or air vents, or you notice an increase in dust swirling around your home, call 940-627-1616. One of our heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) experts will survey your ductwork and HVAC system to show you what corrections are possible. Request air duct service online today.

There are both pros and cons to a ductless system, or a mini split. There are those homeowners here in Krum who love their wall-mounted mini split units, yet others prefer to go with the conventional heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) unit hidden above the ceiling or in a mechanical closet.
The ductless split pros: lower energy bills and better zone control. The cons: more frequent filter cleanings and sometimes, but not always, a high installation cost (although at Decatur Heat & Air we would love to do a cost comparison for you).
Ductless systems are an excellent way to add additional heating or cooling to a single room without having to remove large sections of wall or find space above the ceiling for a standard ducted unit. Ductless systems are unmatched for their efficiency and quiet operation.
If you would like to see what a ductless system can do in your Texas home, call our team at 940-627-1616. You will be surprised at what a ductless mini split can do for your home’s comfort. Request ductless system service online today.
Did you know each member of your family sheds roughly 1.5 pounds of dead skin every year? And these cells make up a significant part of the dust you find on the surfaces of your Texas home as well as in your air ducts.
Our trained professionals at Decatur Heat & Air are dedicated to helping you keep your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system clean and in good working order. As part of that effort, we suggest regular air duct cleaning.
Our duct cleaning services are part of a comprehensive HVAC maintenance program. When we arrive at your home, we will inspect the network of air ducts that carry heated and cooled air throughout the rooms of your Krum home.
Our specialized equipment is designed to loosen and remove all the things that have gathered in your air ducts over the years. In most homes that can include pollen, textile fibers, dust mites, viruses, mold spores, and pet dander.
We can also clean other components of your system such as exchangers, diffusers, condenser coils, and registers. Buildup of dirt and grime in your air ducts and throughout your HVAC system can negatively affect your overall system’s performance, waste energy, and shorten the life of your system.
Call our team at Decatur Heat & Air at 940-627-1616 to learn more about air duct cleaning services. We want to help you maintain a clean, well-running, and reliable HVAC system. Request duct cleaning service online today.
Geothermal Heat Pumps
Over the last decade, the efficiencies of heating and air conditioning equipment have reached unprecedented levels. Along with the improvements in operating efficiencies have come heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and equipment that are also easier to use and last longer than previous variants of the equipment.
One excellent example is the advancement of geothermal or ground source heat pumps. Although geothermal systems have been around for several decades, only in the last 10 years have these systems been recognized for their efficiency and longevity. Decatur Heat & Air has seen an astounding increase in geothermal installations in Krum.
Geothermal heat pumps reject and absorb heat from the ground instead of the air like a conventional heat pump. There is no outdoor condensing unit with a geothermal heat pump, making it the perfect system for Texas homes and small commercial buildings located near the ocean or factories where the air quickly corrodes outdoor condensers.
Is a geothermal heat pump right for your home? Call us at 940-627-1616. We would be happy to explain how geothermal heat pumps work and how they can make your heating and cooling system better. Request geothermal heat pump service online today.
Heat pumps are by far the most common heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system installed in Texas, and the pace of growth for these systems shows no sign of slowing. Heat pumps are so popular because they save a lot of money over other units that use electric strip heat.
Heat pump units can draw heat energy out of the atmosphere even when outdoor temperatures drop below 60 degrees. It is cheaper to use the heat pump cycle to warm your home instead of the electric strip heat. Some Krum homeowners report their heating electric bill has dropped by half when they install a new heat pump.
Heat pumps can lose efficiency when the outdoor air drops below the 45 degrees Fahrenheit because there is so little heat energy to transfer into the house. When temperatures get too cold, the heat pump can use a backup heat source like natural gas or propane.
Is your home right for a heat pump? Decatur Heat & Air can show you the different heat pump options for your home. Call 940-627-1616 to speak to one of our experienced HVAC team members. One call and we will be right there to help. Request heat pump service online today.
It was not that long ago the only things in your home you could control remotely were the garage door and the TV. Times have changed dramatically, and it seems we can remotely control every device we own from our car to our refrigerator and our air conditioning unit.
Control of these systems is more than just convenience and cool factor. Turning off energy-consuming appliances when not in use can save you a lot of money and reduce wear and tear on the equipment.

Indoor Air Quality
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the average American spends 93 percent of their time indoors. It’s no wonder that poor indoor air quality can have such a detrimental effect on your health. Our professionals at Decatur Heat & Air can test your indoor air quality as well as provide tips and services to help you improve it in your Texas home.
Common indoor air pollutants include dust and dust mites, pet hair and dander, bacteria and viruses, smoke, and chemicals from cleaning supplies and new furniture. Most heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems use an air filter to remove some of these pollutants. However, the size of particulates removed may vary depending on the quality of the filter.
Poor indoor air quality can lead to general discomfort or possibly more serious health issues. Asthma and allergies can both be aggravated by poor indoor air quality, causing additional respiratory distress.
Instead, consider having one of our air quality professionals come out and evaluate your Krum home. Air duct cleaning, air purification systems, and HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters may be recommended as part of a remediation program. Our trained experts will also inspect your HVAC system for potential leaks of carbon monoxide and other dangerous substances.
The last thing you want to happen in the heat of the summer is to turn on your air conditioning system and find it blowing hot air or to fire up your furnace to find it broken as the mercury drops in the winter. One way to prevent this scenario from occurring is to schedule regular HVAC maintenance service calls during the shoulder seasons. Our professionals at Decatur Heat & Air will be happy to come out in the spring to inspect your air conditioner and again in the fall to check your furnace.
Our trained technicians will perform a multipoint inspection to make sure everything is in good working order. In addition, they will thoroughly clean all the components of your system and change filters. If they discover any worn parts, they will advise replacement to avoid a costly repair later. Lubrication, tightening of electrical connections, and a safety check are included.
By investing in regular HVAC maintenance for your Krum home, you will keep your home comfortable. In addition, you can save money on your energy bills in Texas and increase the longevity of your entire system in the long run. Maintenance inspections are usually much less expensive than emergency repair calls, saving you money down the road.

The heating and cooling of your Krum home does not need to stop with the basic components of a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system. While these may fill most homeowners’ needs, there are always a few outliers where some extras will add so much. One of the most common home issues a basic HVAC system may not be able to handle is maintaining appropriate home humidity levels.
Right off, you may not understand the need for a whole-house dehumidifiers in your Texas home. However, they can help reduce your HVAC bills, help keep wear and tear on your overall system to a minimum, and generally have a larger impact in your home comfort than you might give them credit for at a first glance.
Another reason to consider these systems is if you struggle with allergies and other respiratory issues, including reactions to mold and mildew. These systems are very good at reducing and/or eliminating those problems from your home as they can be linked to unbalanced humidity levels.
If you are interested in what these systems can do for you, give us a call at 940-627-1616. Our professionals at Decatur Heat & Air are fully capable and ready to assist you. Request whole-house dehumidifier service online .
Thunderstorms can wreak havoc on your plans, but they can cause even more trouble when they knock out your power. More than one-quarter of all US homeowners have experienced a power outage that lasted more than 12 hours over a two-year period of time. That’s long enough to cause significant inconvenience from food spoilage to uncomfortable indoor temperatures. Our team at Decatur Heat & Air recommends you invest in a whole-house generator to help avoid these inconveniences.
A whole-house generator is simply a generator that can take over your Texas home’s power load in the event of an outage. With a simple throw of a transfer switch, you can move your home’s heating, cooling, electronics, and appliances to an alternative source of power for as long as you need it.
For busy Krum residents, a whole-house generator can be mean the difference between continuing with your daily duties and being paralyzed from a lack of electricity.
Our trained heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) experts can come out and evaluate your power load, size of your home, and electricity needs in order to recommend a properly sized standby generator that can provide all your power needs in the case of an outage.
Contact Decatur Heat & Air at 940-627-1616 to learn more about whole-house generators. We would be happy to answer your questions and help you make the right decision. Request whole-house generator service today.
It may not occur to you to add on to your existing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system to solve chronic issues in your Krum home. You simply turn your thermostat up or down to control your comfort level. While that may work for some small homes, you might benefit from considering alternative options. And one of these is a whole-house humidifier.
These units do much more than control the humidity in your Texas home. They can also lower your HVAC bills, help you with chronic respiratory or other health issues, and improve the quality of your home’s circulating air.
While these may seem like big claims for a system that only adds moisture to your home, the simple fact remains that whole-house humidifiers do not get enough attention from people who may need them the most.
If you think your home may benefit from one of these units or you would simply like to explore your options, our Decatur Heat & Air professionals at 940-627-1616 are happy to help you. Request whole-house humidifier service online today.
Zone Control Systems
Technology continues to advance on all fronts today, especially in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) field. One of the more exciting new developments is zone control systems . These systems tie into your overall HVAC system; however, they provide you with superior temperature control in different zones of your Texas home.
Here’s how they work. Each zone of your home has its own thermostat, which can be programmed by day and time. As one zone “calls” your central system, automatic dampers open and close to direct the heating or cooling to that particular zone. If a second zone puts in a request, dampers adjust accordingly. Your HVAC system will continue to run until all zones reach their desired temperatures.
Our Decatur Heat & Air team can work with you to see if your current HVAC system can work with a zone control system. In most cases, controlling temperature by zones of your home will reduce the amount of energy you consume and lower your monthly utility bills.
Gone are the days of trying to determine the optimum temperature for your entire home or trying to manually close and open vents in the middle of your daily duties. Zone control systems take the worry out of managing your Krum home’s comfort levels and energy consumption.
Contact Decatur Heat & Air at 940-627-1616 with any questions about zone control systems. Our team would be happy to help you determine if it’s right for you. Request zone control system service online today.
