Heating and air conditioning replacement is an unavoidable eventuality, even with excellent maintenance. Once it becomes clear that your heater and AC needs to be replaced, our technicians will evaluate your space and your needs to design a superior system that will provide you with the comfort you deserve. Everything from duct work, vents, and airflow will be considered and optimized, to help save you money in energy costs and ensure the efficiency and longevity of your new system.
Here are the top considerations when choosing a heating and cooling company:
- They offer the best solutions for your problem. No matter what problem you are having with your air conditioning system they need to have the best and most efficient solution. They should first listen to your needs and explain how they are going to fix it.
- Expertise and Trust: your HVAC system is probably one of the most costly items in your home and you don’t buy one every day. See what your San Marcos neighbors are saying about our 5 Star Services over the last 3 decades.
- Free Estimates – they should offer a free estimate on the services that they will be performing. At a minimum, if they do charge a fee to come out, it should be included in the service if you decide to hire them.
- Licensing – they need to be a licensed professional. The vast majority of HVAC pros are licensed but just check and make sure before hiring them.
- How involved are they in your local community? We’re glad for the opportunity to give back to Hays County for 3 decades. Check out our yearly Gift of Heat community service.

Dinsmore - San Marcos, TX
Our A/C started blowing warm air last Saturday. We didn't know who to call and were told that Garner Heating and Air Conditioning would take care of us. We called and spoke with Ryan who was here within the hour (on a Saturday afternoon!). He had to clear away the brush around the A/C before even beginning the service. He quickly diagnosed and fixed our problem. Ryan was prompt, friendly, honest, and extremely knowledgeable. This is an 18 year old system, so he did what it took to keep it going. We know that we will work with Ryan and Garners in the future when we need a new A/C. Thanks for great service!
great service and a good price goot done in one day

Max was great. He’s very professional and thorough in explaining things.
Performed the heater tune-up and everything is working to specifications at this time.
Performed the heater tune-up and everything is working at this time. The ignition system did not start the first time I turned it on. I unplugged it to check it and when I put it back together everything came on. I informed the customer and they wanted to hold off on replacing it at this time.
Performed the heater tune-up and everything is working at this time. While performing the inspection I did find the ignition and combustion system to be weak and slow starting. I gave the customer their options and they chose to have it replaced at the platinum level at this time. After performing a platinum level repair everything is working and performing to factory specs.
Found a bad condenser fan motor on startup of the system. The motor will be in tomorrow and we will put it in this week.
the customer informed me that there was water coming out of the mini-split head that controls the bathroom. I poured 5 bottles of water into the drain pan and watch them flow out of the drain outside of the house with no problems. I turned the system on and let it run for about 45 minutes and could not get the system to replicate any type of moisture dripping from the system. After it ran for 45 minutes, I poured 2 gallons of water into the drain pan just to be sure that everything is free flowing at this time. Per Ryan there will be no charge at this time. I did inform the customer that they will need to keep up with changing the filters or this could happen again. I also told them that if it happens again there will be a service charge for coming out.
Diagnosed a clogged drain. Presented options to perform drain treatment but customer unemployed and did not want to move forward with purge. System is up and cooling at this time. Also recommended a tune-up.
When I arrived, the customer informed me that the indoor system was making a strange drilling noise. I turned the system on and checked everything out and could not get it to replicate the noise for me at this time. The motor seems to be fine at this time. I informed the customer that if it happens again to give me a call so I can hear it to help pinpoint the issue.
Performed a water removal system renovation. We installed a new secondary condensate drain pan, new vibration reduction system and installed a new ceiling saver switch to trap any overflow condensate. We also rebuilt the primary and secondary drains and corrected the orientation of each that were installed incorrectly at the initial installation. We sealed the tape joints that were coming loose with mastic and hard cast. Thoroughly cleaned the condensing coil and rebuilt the voltage enhancement system on the furnace blower motor. System is in good working order at this time.
Conducted cooling check 2020 on down flow electric heat system. The system is cooling properly at this time.
Installed a Carrier 2-ton straight electric system. Installed all ductwork throughout home. Sealed supply plenum to unit and installed line set cover. Pulled deep vacuum and installed condensate pump.
Performed the AC tune-up and everything is working at this time. While performing the AC tune-up I found the voltage enhancer to be weak and undervalued; it is rated at 40/5 and reading 7.9/2.1. I gave the customer his options and he chose to have it replaced at the platinum level at this time. After performing a platinum level voltage enhancer repair with installing a new voltage enhancer, voltage distributor and installing a new start assist everything is working at this time.
Performed the AC tune-up and everything is working at this time. While performing the inspection I did find the condenser fan motor had an oily residue on the outside of it. I checked the bearings as well as the amp draw, and everything is checking out good at this time. I informed the customer and he said he will keep an eye on it.
Called the customer and he informed me that it seemed like one of the rooms in the house was not cooling as well as other rooms, but he also informed me that the door is kept closed all the time. I suggested that they try cracking the door by about 4” - 5" and running it that way for a few days to see if that helps. If it does then we will have to add return air into that room.
When I arrived, I found some loose connections in the air handler. After repairing the connections, the system is now cooling properly.
When I arrived, I found the water removal system to be backed up and not draining. I spoke to the customer about his options and he chose to have it cleared at the basic level at this time. After clearing the drain, the system is back up and cooling.
New climate control (Honeywell T1) has been installed and programmed. Walked customers through operations and told them if they have any issues to give me a call. System up and cooling.
Performed the AC tune-up and everything is working at this time.
Called the customer when I was about to start heading over to their house and she was asking me if it could potentially be the filter again. I informed her that it could be and if I came out there and found out that it was just a dirty filter again, I will have to change them again. She told me that they are going to replace the filters, let it thaw out and if it freezes up again, she will give us call back.
When I arrived, I found the primary drain line to be backed up and the secondary drain pan to be full of water. I gave the customer his options and he chose to have it cleared and treated at the basic level at this time. After clearing the line and pumping all the water out of the drain pan, the system is working at this time. I also sold and replaced the American Standard Perfect Fit filter in the system.
When I arrived, I found the mini split head in the living area to be dripping a little bit of water every now and then. I found that the drain tube had a slight restriction in it. I cleared through it again and everything is working at this time. I did inform the customer that this is under warranty from the work we did a month ago however if it happens again we will need to run a whole new drain line through the wall and that will not be covered. The drain tube that is in there now is the ribbed small diameter mini split drain hose.

AC Maintenance San Marcos, TX
Maintaining your heating and cooling components is incredibly important for the longevity of your system.

A poorly running system will not only impede your ability to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter; your energy costs will skyrocket as your system runs overtime to compensate.
Our A/C and heat experts will work diligently to thoroughly remove dirt and debris, which can quickly cause many of the common problems associated with poor performance and the shortened life span of your system. They will evaluate your equipment, catching potential problems before they become heating and air conditioning emergencies. Scheduling regular maintenance also has the added benefit of keeping the air quality in your residential or commercial property healthy.
