Thanks to hot weather and a rainy spring season, it is common for homeowners throughout Denton, TX and the surrounding areas to experience issues with insects around their AC units.
Fire ants are known to make their winter home in and around air conditioning units, sometimes building up large mounds around and inside the electrical components and even the compressor. With spring rains, ant mounds move closer to the surface, finding a home in and around your outside unit. These mounds can literally choke off proper operation of an AC unit. In addition to causing problems with the system itself, ants frequently use the outside unit as a direct route to the inside of your home, causing further distress and damage.
At Cogburn’s Heating and Air Conditioning, our experienced air conditioning contractor can help you eliminate your ant problem at the source. When you call us, we’ll start by visually inspecting the outside of your exterior unit.
