Tips for an Emergency AC Breakdown

September 18th, 2023

Here in eastern Florida, we use our air conditioners a bit differently from the rest of the country. For instance, we could be getting some severe heat and humidity well into October or November, so it’s pretty common to keep your air conditioner running practically all year round.

For customers that are dealing with a breakdown now, or are anxious about a breakdown in the future, this blog will hopefully alleviate some of those fears. We’ll get into how a breakdown might happen, what you can do in the meantime, and why you should always call for repairs.

3 Problems With Old Ductwork

September 4th, 2023

Ducts are absolutely vital to your home comfort and efficiency. Unless you invest in a more expensive ductless mini split system that doesn’t rely on air ducts, you’re going to want to make sure your air ducts are tightly sealed and in good shape for the foreseeable future.

This can be hard for a lot of people since ductwork isn’t the most glamorous part of HVAC.

This is why we’d like to take this blog post as sort of a PSA to teach some of our customers about the problems that come with old or outdated ductwork.

If you’re noticing your ductwork having rips, tears, gaps, and even critters inside of it, then you’re in the perfect position to sign up for professional duct services.

Why an AC Upgrade Is a Great Idea

August 7th, 2023

Central air conditioners are more powerful, more efficient, and more well-liked than window unit AC systems. They’re also more expensive, which can be a dealbreaker in cases where a customer has to choose.

We’re not going to convince someone to upgrade their air conditioning if it’s not a good idea. Some small apartments and tiny houses are perfectly well-suited for a window unit air conditioner, if you don’t mind the sun being blocked out of your favorite bedroom window. But many of our readers and customers are homeowners who have much more space that needs to be cooled.

When your whole family’s comfort is on the line, upgrading to a central air conditioner installation in Rockledge, FL is going to be a very smart move. We’ll go into detail about why these systems are so powerful and efficient and might end up actually saving you money down the line.

When Might Air Ducts Need to Be Replaced?

July 24th, 2023

Air ducts are an interesting component of your home. They might have been constructed at the same time you got your first central air conditioning system installed, or perhaps they were set up with you purchased a furnace. Either way, forced-air heating and cooling systems (that don’t rely on air handlers) must use air ducts in order to bring comfortable air to the rooms of a house.

Things can get funky with old homes especially, since most older homes used boilers and other methods for staying warm that didn’t rely on air ducts or air in general. This means that actually getting the air ducts installed in a home can be complicated, expensive, and a nightmare when they need to be replaced.

Let’s take the anxiety out of the equation today. We’ll talk about when you might need to call for our help with your AC duct replacement in Palm Bay, FL, and why this can be stressful to evaluate on your own.

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.

Each represents a different approach to air conditioning, with its own strengths and weaknesses.
