Is It Time to Replace Your Commercial AC?

Monday, November 28th, 2022

As a business owner, life is just easier with a commercial AC unit you can trust. We’re talking about trust in multiple forms–trusting that it won’t break down, trusting that it’s running efficiently, and trusting that no matter what your customers, employees, or clients demand, it will reach the desired temperature setting. That’s real comfort, and a great HVAC system should be able to provide it for you.

So, when should you invest in a technician to repair your system, and when should you call it quits and replace it? This is an important topic to cover, and we’re going to go over all the details today. After reading this blog, we want customers to have a general idea of when commercial AC in Rockledge, FL is on its way out and when you might want to invest in a newer, more efficient model to take its place.

For Central AC: Size Matters!

Monday, November 14th, 2022

Our team provides custom air conditioner installations for both residential and commercial customers. In both cases, we need to perform what’s called a “size-load calculation” before we can even figure out what kind of system to install. This test takes into account the full air volume of the space, as well as the air pressure and other factors that might require an AC system to cool more air. Things like high ceilings, (if we’re providing an AC installation for a church, this is usually an important factor to consider) but also the length of your home, the different rooms, and what spaces are unfinished and finished.

This is essentially the first roadblock that customers run into when they’re thinking about getting their central AC installation in Palm Bay, FL done by an amateur. Friends or amateurs might be cheaper for this work, but they likely don’t have the tools that we do to perform such a necessary process for your new system.

In fact, you could be spending more money on lower efficiency and poor performance, when a smart thermostat could fix that!

The Shoulds and Should Nots of AC

Monday, August 8th, 2022

We wouldn’t say that there’s a “right way” to run your air conditioner, but there are definitely more energy-intensive ways you can use your technology. For instance, keeping a light on all day while you’re not in the room is what we would usually consider a waste of energy, even if it’s not that big of a deal when it happens once in a while.

With air conditioners, we tend to see homeowners using them in sub-optimal ways that can impact their budget, comfort, and even the components of the AC itself. AC repairs in Melbourne, FL can be a great way to have your system fixed or the efficiency increased, but during the hottest days of the year, any tip that can help your system perform optimally is going to go a long way!
