The Basis Behind Ductless Maintenance

May 15th, 2023

You’ve probably heard us mention a few times on this blog that ductless systems require maintenance twice a year. While it’s true, it’s a little unfair to request this of our customers if we don’t explain ourselves.

For instance, a regular central air conditioner only needs maintenance once a year. Same thing with a heating system like a gas furnace. So why do ductless systems and other heat pumps require maintenance biannually? Doesn’t that make a central AC more cost-effective?

Well, not really. This maintenance is required because ductless systems and other similarly-suited heat pumps do something that they don’t. That’s what we’ll be getting into today. Just make sure you’ve got our number on speed dial at the end of this blog, so you can schedule ductless AC maintenance in Melbourne, FL at your earliest convenience.

3 Unique AC Options for Every Customer

May 1st, 2023

As an HVAC provider, we need to be as clear as possible about the types of systems we install. Every home is different, every customer has different needs, and it’s impossible to have a “one-size-fits-all” type of solution in this industry.

That’s why we’d like to talk about some of the major differences between central air conditioners, heat pumps, and ductless mini splits. Each represents a different approach to air conditioning, with its own strengths and weaknesses. If you’re in the market for an air conditioning installation in Rockledge, FL, this blog post will hopefully inform you of the specific products you might see.

Remember, if you don’t feel good about the prospective AC that we recommend, then tell us! Your comfort preferences and energy efficiency are a high priority, and no system is going to be perfect. Our job is to match you with the AC that makes you happy and keeps you comfortable.

Bad Ducts Are No Joke

April 17th, 2023

Ductwork might seem like a small part of your overall HVAC system, but in reality, that’s not really the case. An air duct on the outside might just seem like a few pieces of sheet metal put together to form a tube or a prism, but inside all the heated or cooled air is traveling through it quickly in order to reach the rooms of your home. Your thermostat depends on these pathways so that the temperature can change and it can finally register as the temperature you set.

If your ducts encounter problems, which can be anything from a small leak to a major gap, the AC won’t necessarily recognize that there’s a problem. The ducts will continue to leak air as the system pushes and pushes to try and reach your thermostat’s temperature setting. Eventually, you could see a high energy bill, an uncomfortable house, or even a broken-down AC! So, let’s get into the reasons why HVAC duct repair in Palm Bay, FL is no joke!

April 3rd, 2023

Is Your AC Leaking?

March 20th, 2023

Taking the air conditioner out of hibernation can be a tough task, especially if you’re doing it for the first spring since you purchased it. You might be crossing your fingers hoping that it works flawlessly so you don’t have to start looking online for help. But, once the system starts dripping water or leaving a puddle behind, then you’ve got some serious problems.

There’s nothing inherently wrong with water. It’s everywhere, on the ground, in the atmosphere, and even in our bodies. But when water is leaking from something, that’s usually a bad sign. Stagnant water can warp your furniture, rot away at components in your home, and even cause mold to grow.

We’d like to talk about why leaking water is a good reason to call for AC repair in Melbourne, FL. Then we’ll discuss what the worst-case scenario might be.

Taking the AC Out of Hibernation

March 6th, 2023

We know that to many of our local customers, their air conditioners never really stopped working. We live in a unique climate, so we’re not talking about several months of hardware hibernation for your air conditioner while we rely on our heating systems. It’s mainly a single month, if at all.

But that being said, keeping your air conditioner off for even a week or longer is going to require some vigilance when you’re preparing to turn it back on. For instance, a bunch of critters could have created a nest in the system, or rocks and debris from the last storm could have become lodged in the vents and it might even require a repair.

Unfortunately, we can’t do anything about your air conditioning in Melbourne, FL unless you do a first pass and give us a call. So here’s a handy checklist with a focus on how you can take your system out of hibernation.

We Can Save Your Commercial Heating

February 6th, 2023

For the reasons we’re about to mention, it’s worth investing in furnace repair in Palm Bay, FL even if the temperatures are starting to increase or if the heating season is likely to end in a few weeks.

Evaluating an AC Problem

January 23rd, 2023

Air conditioners are built to last, but lasting for a decade or more doesn’t come without a few hitches. There’s a good reason why professional AC repair in Melbourne, FL is common, and that’s due to the fact that components sometimes run into problems. We rely heavily on our air conditioners, so it only makes sense that after a few years, there’s something that needs to be fixed.

Well, that can be tough when you’re a homeowner with little to no experience with the interior components of your system. Also, the moment you open your air conditioning system up just to take a look at what the problem might be, you could be voiding your warranty and losing potential money in the future. So, what can you do?

Evaluating an AC problem from a homeowner’s perspective is tricky, but it can be done properly. Keep reading to learn how you can analyze the issue with your AC while figuring out what to do next.

What Does AC Maintenance Give You?

January 9th, 2023

We pay for a lot of things in our lives. Sometimes, it can be hard to keep up with the sheer amount of payments we need to make per month for things such as mortgages, utilities, subscriptions, services, and even things like student loans. We pay so much and get so little sometimes that it can feel unfair.
