Code 3 Air Conditioning and Heat has been serving the Allen TX area for years and we have become very familiar with the different types of systems installed in our homes and offices. We often find that an AC unit will last about ten years before you should consider replacing it. Some will last a lot longer depending on the brand and how often it’s used. The heating elements can last several more years.
Here is a partial list of the types of services and issues that we can take care of in your Allen home or office.
- Upgrading an old AC Unit with a newer efficient Model
- Winter heating checkups
- Summer AC checkup
- Air conditioning repair
- Furnace repair
- Furnace replacement
- Coil cleaning and replacement.
- Thermostat replacement (they can cost more to repair than a new model)
- Outdoor condenser repair and replacement.
- Dead capacitor replacement.
- Fixing a system that blows warm air in the summer.
- An AC system that doesn’t turn on.
Preparing your System for Summer
Summers in north Texas can be brutally hot, and this year will be no exception. With average temperatures expected to hover in the upper 90’s for a few months, your AC units will be tasked to keep your homes and offices cool.
At Code 3 Heating and Air Conditioning, we recommend having us come out and inspect your units when we start to see temperatures in the low 80’s, i.e. when your AC has been turning on for a week.
It is also important to change out your filter every month, or if you have a larger 4 inch wide filter, every 3 months. You’ll be surprised how much dirt and dust is captured over a short time. If you have cats and dogs in your house, there will be a lot more fluff accumulated in the filter.
When we come out to your home for a seasonal checkup, not only will we check your filters, but also your entire system end to end. It’s important to have this done early in the summer in the event your AC decides to break down on a Friday afternoon right before a long weekend! Nobody wants to come home to a warm house and then have to wait for an HVAC company to come around on Monday.
Preparing your Heating System for Winter
Winters in Allen are typically quite mild, depending on your frame of reference! Mild, meaning that the heating part of your HVAC system doesn’t run for as long as the AC components in the summer.
Nonetheless, we need to stay warm inside, whether it’s below freezing, or 50 degrees. Average low temperatures can hover around 40 degrees. We’ll occasionally get colder snaps and freezing rain which means the heating will be running longer. All the reason to make sure your system is tuned up for the winter months.
We can check the operation of your heating system before it’s needed as there are less parts involved compared to when the AC is running. For example, the compressor (the large unit outside) does not run when the heating is on.
The other thing to watch out for is a build up of carbon monoxide gas if your system is not properly venting. This can be harmful to pets and humans alike, which is why we always recommend a winter system checkup.
The only active parts of your furnace that run in the winter time are the air handler (which blows warm air through your ducts) and the gas furnace which ignites natural gas to produce heat. Some systems have an electrical based furnace, which heats up coils of wire much like a floor standing electric heater. If you have the option, always use your natural gas furnace as it’s much cheaper to operate.
Even though the system doesn’t run as often as in the summer, it’s still important to change out your filter every month, or if you have a larger 4 inch wide filter, every 3 months.
When we come out to your home for a seasonal checkup, not only will we check your filters, but also your entire system end to end. It’s important to have this done before the colder temperatures hit in the event your heating system decides to go on vacation right before your family comes into town for the holidays! Nobody wants to entertain friends and family in a frigid cold house while they wait for the heating company to show up on Monday.

The History of Allen
In 1872, the Houston and Central Texas Railroad created the city of Allen, which was named after a Texas politician called Ebenezer Allen. In the 1800’s, when the railway ran through Allen (it has been out of service for decades), it allowed the sale of farm good such as crops. Previously, this area was more known for its cattle farming.
One of its claims to fame is that it was the site of a train robbery in 1878 with Sam Bass, widely thought of as the first time a train was robbed in the state of Texas.
In 1953, Allen was finally incorporated as a city.
With the building of highway US-75, the population has grown dramatically, forcing the city to build a brand new high school. Allen ISD has a total of 23 schools, from elementary to high school to support its large student base.
