Here in Florida, it’s pretty rare for us to talk about heaters. Heck, we’re probably talking to customers more about air conditioners than we are about heaters in January. While all of this might be true, we’d be a pretty irresponsible HVAC contractor if we didn’t also talk to you about some of the important heating systems we service, and how they can help save you money if you’re in the market for one today.
Let’s face it, it might not get that cold in Florida, but it still gets nippy every once in a while. That’s why we’d like to mention heat pumps and their many advantages they have over other conventional heaters. In our mild climate, heat pumps are able to move heat from one location to another in a cost-effective manner. They might seem new to you, but they are one of our most popular HVAC services in Palm Bay, FL and they could be an incredibly efficient way for you to deal with the variety of temperatures we experience here.

Air conditioners are complex machines that cool the air in our homes. They’re not magic boxes that cool air with the flick of a wrist. To understand the inner workings of an air conditioner requires some scientific background knowledge.
So today we’re going to talk about the science behind air conditioning so we can dispel a few myths about the process and what these systems can or cannot do. There’s no point in pretending that your air conditioner can do certain tasks when there’s no research or data that supports that conclusion. You wouldn’t believe the number of calls we get for AC repair in Rockledge, FL where homeowners have been duped into believing a common misconception about air conditioning that has lead to an expensive repair or replacement.
Avoid making mistakes by doing the research. Keep reading and we’ll discuss just what we mean by that.

Incorrectly sized air conditioning units are more common occurrences than we’d like to see. While a problem like this might not sound like a big deal to homeowners initially, they can become incredibly problematic and cost large amounts of money to replace. Nothing feels worse than having to replace your semi-new air conditioner because it just can’t effectively cool a home of this size.
Whether there were new additions to your home, new ventilation systems were put in, or your AC system was installed by an amateur who forgot to size it accordingly, an incorrectly sized system needs to be addressed as soon as possible.
For those of you who are unsure whether or not your AC is the right size, take a look below at some of the tell-tale signs. If it’s starting to look like something is amiss, call our team for air conditioning service in Melbourne, FL.

Dehumidifiers are absolutely necessary in our neck of the woods. If you don’t have an air conditioner or a dehumidifier, chances are you’re extremely uncomfortable most months out of the year. However, much to our dismay, there are so many homeowners who don’t know about the benefits of dehumidifiers, or even how they work!
So, if you’ve ever been interested in a dehumidifier in Melbourne, FL this is your chance to really dig your teeth into the science behind them. It’s not only helpful for those prospective dehumidifier owners, but for anyone with an air conditioner, because they provide dehumidification as well.
No, put the textbook away, we’re not going to quiz you on this material. We just want you to be informed when you’re wondering about an investment as large as a whole-house dehumidifier.

While snowstorms hit our friends up north, we’ll still be struggling with heat and humidity down here. People often say that a dog is man’s best friend, but we’d happily replace that with an air conditioner since an air conditioner can make a hot and humid day bearable.
However, if you’re constantly dealing with a malfunctioning air conditioner, it’s incredibly important to understand the signs of a system that’s on its last legs. One of these signs is short-cycling, which is a process where an air conditioner can’t complete a full cycle and starts causing problems for certain interior components. This can be a life-ending problem for an air conditioner since thorough cycling is incredibly important both to efficiency and correctly cooling air. Let’s see if short-cycling is something you’re dealing with and whether AC repair in Melbourne Beach, FL can solve it.

There are a lot of rumors going around about what the air filter does inside of your air conditioner. While it is an important component of the cooling process, the air filter doesn’t do what many homeowners think it does—and this can cause some huge problems when it doesn’t get changed as often as it should.
We like writing about air filters because they’re a quick solution that can make your air conditioner function much more efficiently, without the need for an HVAC service professional. Air filters can be changed by homeowners and are often a great first step before calling a service professional for AC repair in Indiatlantic, FL.
However, knowledge is power, and in such a warm and humid climate like ours, it’s generally smart to know some information about how your air filter works and why changing it can be such a good idea.

It can be anxiety-inducing to constantly think that your air conditioner is on the verge of needing serious AC repair in Satellite Beach, FL.

That’s why it always pays off to be a vigilant owner of an AC system, because noticing the signs of problems before they become major can save you money and stave off the heat.
However, some problems are harder to notice if you’re not well-acquainted with air conditioning systems. Even the most watchful and careful homeowners can be surprised by air conditioner problems, but our purpose here is to inform you about the more uncommon and hard to notice symptoms of a failing air conditioner.

As with every industry, the newest and hottest appliance always garners the most attention. However, there are significant differences between ductless mini-split air conditioners and their more common counterpart, the central air conditioner. If you’re in the market for a new AC installation in Indian Harbor Beach, FL then you’re going to want to pay close attention to the major differences between the two.
This is just like deciding between buying a motorcycle and a four-door sedan. Both might get you from point A to point B. However, the method of transportation is vastly different on comfort and efficiency. In the same way, a ductless AC and a central air conditioner will cool your home down—but the method in which they do it is different in many ways.
Don’t just take our word for it. Have a look at the specifics and decide for yourself which system is right for you.

Ductless air conditioners are all the rage these days, and for good reason too! They give a custom cooling experience with the small size of their air handlers and the ability to have multiple air handlers scattered throughout a home. Their efficiency and reliability are unmatched by any other air conditioner, and the convenience of having no ductwork makes them perfect for homeowners who don’t want invasive duct installation services, or for people with smaller and older homes that can’t have air ducts installed.
We get it, though. You need more convincing if you’re going to consider getting rid of your central air conditioner. After all, a new air conditioning system is a huge investment, and especially a ductless mini-split which runs even more expensive than a brand-new central air conditioner. So let’s take a quick run through the advantages and disadvantages of a ductless AC in Melbourne, FL so you can make the ultimate decision on whether or not a system like this is right for you.
