Most air conditioning contractors tell you the best you can do is to cut that by about 20° to a bearable, but still noticeably uncomfortable 85°. Even in that heat, you still sweat, stick to the couch, lose hours of precious sleep, and you still want to sit in front of the fan just to keep a minimal level of comfort. Maybe you’ve been accepting that advice as the gold standard of truth for decades!
Efficient Home Solutions has some good news and bad news for you, when it comes to your AC Repair. The bad news is the information you received simply isn’t true. The good news? Our Comfort Specialists can cut your indoor temperatures approximately 35°, while slashing your energy bills by 30-50%…all at a price that fits perfectly within your budget.
How Can Our AC Service in Dallas Cut Your Indoor Air Temperatures by 35° And Your Energy Costs by 40% Per Month at the Same Time?
Well, for starters, it doesn’t matter how old your air conditioning system is, whether brand new or more than a decade, it could be installed wrong. A report by McKinsey & Company, a leading business consulting firm, found that “contractors install 90% of energy efficiency equipment sub-optimally,” and that it skyrockets your AC costs by “30 percent.” The problem is most contractors offering AC repair in Dallas want to run you through their process so they can install a maximum efficiency AC system for you. We’re not saying that’s a dishonest approach, but it doesn’t address all the factors affecting your energy efficiency.
The result of the process could include using a simple solution like replacing your entire AC system, but it could also mean that:
- You don’t have the right size AC system installed for your home
- There’s not enough air returns throughout your house
- Your attic isn’t insulated at all, or its ability to insulate has slowly declined over the years due to natural settling or deterioration
- Your attic’s air envelope isn’t sealed properly
- Your attic isn’t ventilated well
The truth! We don’t know what’s best for your home’s air conditioning and energy efficiency until we take a closer look at it.
Here’s the result Tim K. from Dallas, TX experienced:
“The serviceman arrived in 30 minutes and determined we needed over $1,000 in parts and labor, but since the unit was 17 years old, he recommended a new unit. The soonest they could install it was Sunday morning, so he changed out the parts at no cost to keep us comfortable. As you know, the last two months have been warmer than 2010, but nevertheless we have used 19% and 29% fewer kWh.”
That kind of air conditioning service – and result – is routine at Efficient Home Solutions. It’s why we have an A rating with the BBB, a perfect 5-star rating with Customer Lobby (139 ratings) and the Super Service Award from Angie’s List.

Dallas AC Repair FAQ – Tough Questions and Straight Answers
How do I know it’s time to replace my air conditioner, rather than ac repair?
We run them so much here in North Texas that you get around 8-12 years of use out of the average one. If yours is older than 10 years, it’s definitely time to at least start a maintenance agreement if you don’t have one to try to prolong its life and insure its running effectively and efficiently.
Other signs it’s time to call a contractor offering air conditioning repair in Dallas to replace your system:
- There’s noticeably uneven temperatures in different rooms throughout your home
- You see a big jump in your electric bills even though outdoor temperatures have been the same
- You hear loud or obnoxious noises coming from your system
- If your AC system needs additional refrigerant – fixing a leak and adding a few pounds of refrigerant can be costly, and that money may be better invested in a new system
- You have an outdated SEER rating – Beginning in 2015, Texas requires all newly installed HVAC systems to have at least a 14 SEER rating (the old standard was 13)
When AC repair estimate appears high and costs too much – Simply take the age of your air conditioner and multiply that by the repair cost. If that number exceeds $5,000, it’s time to strongly think about replacing it.
Remember, there’s absolutely no pressure to buy from us! Make your decision when you’re ready – financing is available if you need it.
How often should I replace my air conditioner’s filter?
In Texas, you should do it at least once every 3 months. If you have pets, then every month. During time where the heat’s more intense, you may have to do it weekly.
When you get service from one of Efficient Home Solution’s technicians, ask for specific guidelines based on your cooling needs. Also ask how you can increase your indoor air quality if that’s a concern.
What maintenance can I do?
Most of ac repair should be done by a HVAC professional. But you can do a couple things, like:
- Keeping your AC unit free and clear of debris, clutter and weeds. Don’t use a weed whip to cut the weeds – that shoots particles into your AC system that cause damage. Pull the weeds out by hand, or use a mechanical hand clipper to do the work.
- Don’t let your pets urinate on or near the unit – that can cause expensive damage.
- Rinse the condenser coils off with your water hose, but do not use high pressure nozzles.
How often should I have professional maintenance or ac repair performed on my system?
You should do it once in Spring and once in Fall. Not only does it keep your AC system fine-tuned for max efficiency, but you can catch minor problems before they become major (and costly) repairs. See the Efficient Home Solutions’ Energy-Savings Maintenance Agreement.
