Air Conditioners Need Balanced Power Levels

March 19th, 2018

air-conditioning-warm-airSpring is officially here and summer won’t be far behind. If your air conditioner struggled to make it through last summer, now is the right time to purchase a new one. Doing so gives you the luxury of scheduling the replacement at your convenience, as well as allowing you to enjoy the benefits of a new system (such as greater efficiency and lower strain) all summer long.

One of the big factors you should consider with your new air conditioning system is the comparative power output level of the new unit. A trained technician can help you with specifics, but it pays to consider why power levels are so important. Continue Reading

Schedule a Maintenance Session for Your AC

March 5th, 2018

air-conditioning-repairWarm temperatures come early in our neck of the woods. It’s one of the reasons why we live where we do. But it also means that your air conditioner needs to be ready to work on a daily basis. The last thing you need is a sudden breakdown in the middle of a scorching day, or monthly bills that are higher than they should be. One of the best ways to prevent that is to schedule a maintenance session from a trained technician as soon as possible. Now is the perfect time of year to do so, when the weather is cool and you have a few weeks to find the right time for you before the temperatures start to rise. Continue Reading

Sizing a New Air Conditioner

February 19th, 2018

air-conditioning-maintenanceIf you’re in the market for a new air conditioning system, now is the time to act. Winters are very mild in our neck of the world, and late February represents one of the few times of the year when you have no regular need of your air conditioner. If yours labored during the last months of summer, if the warranty has expired, if you’re dealing with repair issues more often than you’d like, or any combination of the above factors, then replacing your outdated system with a new one makes a lot of sense.

Install a Dehumidifier Now Before You Need It

January 22nd, 2018

whole-house-dehumidifierSummers are very hot in our neck of the woods, and they seem to start a little earlier every year. That means more than just high temperatures, however. Here in Florida, that means stifling humidity levels as well, which can cause as many problems to your home as the heat can. Air conditioners can deal with the issue in a rough way, but they’re not set up for such duties and excess humidity can add a lot of strain to them. A whole-house dehumidifier, on the other hand, can handle the problem the right way, and save your air conditioner a lot of wear and tear in the process. With the weather comparatively cool and the need for your air conditioner severely reduced, now is the perfect time to plan for an installation. It gives you plenty of time to set up a schedule before you have need of your system. Continue Reading

air-conditioning-repairWinters are very mild in Florida, and while we’re technically in heating season right now, the weather still gets warm enough to run your air conditioner on a surprisingly regular basis. Nonetheless, the demand for your AC is likely reduced — especially when compared to our scorching hot summers — and if you’re looking at fixing a recurring problem with your system now is the time to do it (when you don’t have as much need of it and can let it rest for a few days if necessary). Continue Reading

Why Is It Important to Schedule Air Conditioning Repairs Early?

November 27th, 2017

air-conditioning-maintenanceAir conditioning season never really ends in Florida, but we do tend to use ours a lot less in the cooler parts of the year. Many homeowners tend to leave lingering issues with their systems untouched until the spring. We rarely have great need of the system until spring, after all, and few warning signs actually lead to the air conditioner unable to function, at least at first. That can make it very easy to overlook problems with your air conditioner, especially in light of our busy lives and the commitments of work and family. Continue Reading
