Choosing the right contractor is the first step in any project.
Find a HVAC contractor you can trust!
Here are a few ways to help you find the company who is right for you!
Getting the bid
Do the bids clearly describe service and pricing, or are they vague and open ended? Written quotes should always be provided prior to commiting. It is likely there will be additional research to complete your bid following your visit, but don't let that scare you. This means the contractor is checking sources and ensuring you get the best deal on your system. Upon receiving the quote, it should be transparent and make sense while giving a clear picture of what will be done.
Cost of the visit
First of all, consider what you are requesting a technician for. Service calls usually indicates that you know something requires professional repair. A service call will always cost, but at True Blue Air Service estimates for a new system are always free! If the contractor charges you for a new system estimate, you need to be weary as this is a good indication they will find other ways to charge you for services you should not be paying for.
Big brand companies
Are you a person or a number? Do you speak to a different person in a different city or state every time you call for an update on your technician? Are the plans for repair, install or maintenance vague or is there a custom product for you? There is no need to go through a big brand name to get guaranteed service. Trust the local contractor who will understand the demands North Texas weather can put on your system. True Blue Air Service understands that you can’t wait weeks to get your air conditioning repaired during the summer months or your heating repaired in the unpredictable winters.

Keeping our HVAC system properly maintained has many benefits.
Benefits range from our wallet, to the environment and even our health!
So what exactly are some of the benefits of professional HVAC service? Well, it keeps the system running smoothly and can prevent or prepare you for costly repairs or replacements; but let's dig into some hard core facts about what it does for us personally...
Saves Us Money
Regular upkeep and maintenance could help your system run 5% to 15% better. While 5% may not sound like a large number, if you have your system running all year long, the savings can really add up. An efficient system not only will save money by reducing your energy costs, but also using less energy will help the environment. Every little bit can help. Investing the time and money to keep your unit running smoothly, is a small price to pay compared to replacing or repairing the system due to poor maintenance.
Benefits Our Health
Routine maintenance can help reduce the pet hair, dander, dust and mold in your home. When your unit is running properly and cleaned regularly, it can greatly reduce these triggers for allergies and asthma. Regular maintenance can help keep your home a haven from these irritants. It can be difficult to know for sure if your system is up to par, so it's always a safe bet to rely on the professionals!
Keeps Us Cool
This one is pretty straight forward. Summer is near in and the temperatures are definitely rising! Texas heat is pretty much unbearable and we don't' want to get stuck with a busted AC. Regular maintenance will help keep you cool all summer long.

We don’t always think about maintaining our HVAC system...
but we DEFINITELY notice when something goes wrong!
Upkeep on our home is important to all homeowners. But when it comes to our HVAC unit, we don’t always stay on top of it like we should. What exactly do we need to do? Here are a couple steps you can take to prevent the catastrophe of losing AC in the Texas heat…
Regular maintenance at home:
- Check the filters: Filters should be checked every 30 days. Most filters will last from 30 to 90 days, depending on the environment around and in your home. If you have pets that shed or live in a dusty area, plan on changing or cleaning them every 30 days, depending on the type of filter you have.
- Check the area around your outside unit: Look around your outside unit and make sure there are no leaves or mower trimmings up against it. Keep all hedges and foliage trimmed back 2 feet away. This will help keep debris from getting in and give room for air circulation.
Trust the professionals:
- Professional Maintenance: You should have your system serviced by a professional at least twice a year. Spring and fall are the routine times to service your unit; however, if something isn’t running properly, please reach out for a check up!
- During routine service checks, we will be able to check refrigerant levels, look for leaks, measure airflow, check for thermostat accuracy and more. The trained technicians are likely to be able to spot an issue before it becomes a costly problem or has you sweating in the relentless Texas summers!
