When Ducts Get Bad

Monday, January 8th, 2024

Your air ducts are an essential part of your home comfort, unless you’ve got ductless mini splits. For any conventional central AC unit, furnace, or even a centralized heat pump, ducts comprise the network that will transport your cooled or heated air to the rooms of your home. Without ducts, you might just have one comfortable room in your home, and that’s stretching it.

The tricky part with ducts isn’t the necessity of them; most homes have air ducts. Things can get complicated when ducts fall apart. They don’t all break down at once, they usually go through years of neglect and wear and tear before they become barely usable. You could be dealing with an HVAC system that needs duct replacement in Melbourne, FL, or you could just be a great candidate for quick duct repairs.

Figuring out the difference is complicated, and that’s where we can help.

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.

How Maintenance and Repairs Are Related

Monday, August 21st, 2023

Maintenance and repairs are two different services with two different objectives. When you call our team for repairs, we will go to your home, diagnose the problem occurring in your system, and fix it for a low rate. With maintenance, we’ll provide a necessary tune-up, adjustments, and even minor fixes for your system to allow it to continue working properly and efficiently.

What Exactly Is Refrigerant?

Monday, July 10th, 2023

We’re on record to have one of the hottest summers in recent memory, and we’ve already broken a few records. This would be a life-altering event, if it weren’t for your handy AC or heat pump installation in Melbourne, FL that slowly removes the heat from your home and keeps things comfortable. But how exactly does this work?

It’s all thanks to refrigerant, a powerful, man-made chemical that can evaporate and condense with ease. This might sound like a useless superpower, but it’s what allows us to have comfortable indoor temperatures all throughout the country. Refrigerant is the key to cooling, and the more you know about it, the more you’ll be able to be an informed consumer of HVAC products and services in the future.

Let’s discuss refrigerant–what it is and how it works. Then, we promise that as things click in your mind, you’ll know exactly why high-efficiency AC units and heat pumps are so powerful and compelling!

The Basis Behind Ductless Maintenance

Monday, 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.

Well, it is, but it’s not obvious. We really lift our maintenance plan up with these blog posts because the benefits of this kind of service can be hard to understand without an explanation. Maintenance isn’t magic; it’s a service that keeps your AC technology in great shape for a longer period of time. An HVAC maintenance plan in Melbourne, FL ensures you get the most out of your air conditioning technology, at the cheapest cost to you.
