Tripped Circuits Bothering Your Heat? Here’s What to Do

February 5th, 2024

With more homeowners depending on electric heating devices, power surges can be a real problem. Even modern gas furnaces rely on electric ignition systems that still require a minor amount of power, which can be problematic when you have none. And with generator prices getting more expensive, it’s becoming clear that staying on top of power fluctuations is a top priority here in Florida.

Many power fluctuations are out of our control, especially when they happen in the middle of the night or during a bad storm. But sometimes they’re directly a result of poor wiring in a home, a faulty component in your heating system, or even the result of an inefficient system that is sized improperly for your house. In this case, heating repair in Rockledge, FL can offer a solution to the problem–or at least a professional diagnosis at first.

Choosing a Heating Contractor in Florida

January 22nd, 2024

Choosing a heating contractor in Satellite Beach, FL is a lot different than it might be in a more northern state. We just don’t experience cold like those other places do, and our homes are built a lot differently. For instance, much less insulation is required due to the fact that for a majority of the year, temperatures are actually quite comfortable and easy to live with, whereas in other areas heating or air conditioning is practically required through every season.

That being said, a heating contractor is absolutely necessary during the winter, even in Florida. When temperatures dip down, especially during a cold spell, you’ll need a proper heating system to stay warm and cozy. Temperatures can reach the 40s and 50s at night, so you’ll want to make sure your home is a good amount warmer than that.

So, here are a few tips that you can use when it comes to choosing a great heating contractor in Florida.

When Ducts Get Bad

January 8th, 2024

Your air ducts are an essential part of your home comfort, unless you’ve got ductless mini splits. For any conventional central AC unit, furnace, or even a centralized heat pump, ducts comprise the network that will transport your cooled or heated air to the rooms of your home. Without ducts, you might just have one comfortable room in your home, and that’s stretching it.

The tricky part with ducts isn’t the necessity of them; most homes have air ducts. Things can get complicated when ducts fall apart. They don’t all break down at once, they usually go through years of neglect and wear and tear before they become barely usable. You could be dealing with an HVAC system that needs duct replacement in Melbourne, FL, or you could just be a great candidate for quick duct repairs.

Figuring out the difference is complicated, and that’s where we can help.

Are Your Ducts Broken Up?

October 2nd, 2023

Air ducts are vital for our home comfort, but they can fall apart over time. The problem with broken ducts isn’t just the fact that they can cause problems when they deteriorate, but it’s the fact that they’re so hard to notice when they’re in disrepair. Let us explain.

Air ducts sit behind your walls, ceilings, floors, and even in your crawlspaces at home.
