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

Schedule Air Conditioning Repair Sessions to Treat Hurricane Damage

October 16th, 2017

air-conditioning-repairThe past few weeks have been spent assessing the damage from our latest round of hurricanes and dedicating ourselves to repairing and rebuilding. If you’re a homeowner, those efforts should include a close look at your air conditioner.

October 2nd, 2017

ductless-mini-split-ACWe’ve hit the end of cooling season here, and homeowners are assessing the state of their air conditioners in the wake of the damage inflicted by Hurricane Irma. Replacement AC calls are at an all-time high, and should rank among the top priorities for getting your house in order this fall.

It’s a safe and efficient way to condition your home, but it’s not the only method. Continue Reading

UV Air Purifiers Keep Your Home Clean

August 21st, 2017

UV-air-purifierFlorida weather involves a lot of heat and humidity, especially this time of year. That in turn fosters thee growth of mold, bacteria, and other tiny invaders that can make your home a breeding ground for germs and stale air. The problem gets worse in the summer because most of us keep our doors and windows tightly shut to keep the cool air from our AC inside. That in turn allows those germs and bacteria to continually circulate in your home, lowering your quality of life and in the worst cases spreading colds and other sicknesses through your family members.  Continue Reading

Dehumidifiers Can Handle The Mugginess

August 7th, 2017

dehumidifier-high-humidityThe only thing worse than high temperatures during our Florida summers is the excess humidity that seems to drape the area like a blanket every year. High humidity levels in your home can be decidedly uncomfortable, and in the worst cases can even result in a health hazard. Air conditioners can roughly deal with the issue, but they’re designed for temperature control rather than humidity control, and high humidity can really wear them down. Continue Reading
