Tips for Saving Money on Air Conditioning Bills

Monday, April 16th, 2018

air-conditioning-repairSummer starts early in Florida, and every year, the temperatures seem to climb just a little higher. Our air conditioning systems are going to need to run all day every day in most cases. Do otherwise, and your home could turn into an oven in a matter of hours. That makes air conditioning as much of a necessity as plumbing or electricity, and by default, you’re likely going to have to pay higher monthly air  conditioning bills in the summer than you would in the fall or winter.

How Does Air Conditioning Refrigerant Work?

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

Ice-On-ACMost forms of air conditioning rely on refrigerant to do their job: a specialized chemical present in specific amounts in your system. (The precise type and amount depends on the make and model of your air conditioner.) A lot of people assume that air conditioners consume refrigerant like a care consumes gasoline, but that’s not the case. Refrigerant theoretically is supposed to last well past the lifespan of the system,  but unfortunately, leaks are common. In order to understand why that’s a problem, you need to understand how air conditioning refrigerant works to keep your home cool. (more…)

Air Conditioners Need Balanced Power Levels

Monday, 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. (more…)

Schedule a Maintenance Session for Your AC

Monday, 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. (more…)

Sizing a New Air Conditioner

Monday, 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.

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).

Monday, December 25th, 2017

air-conditioning-repairHere in sunny Florida, air conditioning season never really goes away, and we might have need of our system any time of year if an unexpected heat wave hits.

That makes now an excellent time to schedule a service session for your air conditioner, especially if you haven’t done so in the last year. Air conditioning service sessions provide a number of benefits to your system, saving you money and effort in the long run. (more…)

Why Is It Important to Schedule Air Conditioning Repairs Early?

Monday, 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. (more…)
