Are Your Ducts Broken Up?

Monday, 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. They do this because they’re not exactly the most aesthetically pleasing HVAC components (and they can get damaged or infiltrated by pests if they’re out in the open). This means that when something goes wrong that requires HVAC duct repair in Melbourne, FL, it can be almost impossible to detect it.

Here’s where things get interesting–your air ducts absolutely need to be repaired when something goes wrong. Even a slight tear or break can cause huge losses for your energy bill which means you’re paying out of pocket.

First, we’ll talk about methods of detecting an air duct issue. Then, we’ll help you address it.

Why an AC Upgrade Is a Great Idea

Monday, 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.
