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.

Your Heater Still Should Be Running Efficiently

Monday, January 10th, 2022

How old is your heater? Is it only a few years old? Or perhaps it might be older, but you’ve just recently come to own the property so you’re not entirely sure. Now we’d like to ask, how well does your heater run? Does it sputter and make a lot of noise? Does it run up the heating bill every month?

Sorry for the barrage of questions, but they’re going to be important later on. When you choose to purchase a heater, they aren’t split up into categories like “most efficient” or “most effective.” You should actually be choosing to purchase a heater that is both efficient, effective, and makes you happy. All of these categories are important, and today we’d like to talk about how you shouldn’t compromise on efficiency just for a furnace that you might like or be used to.

And, if your heater is lacking in one of those categories, maybe choosing our team for heating repair in Palm Bay, FL could get things back on track!

Moving Heat Is Better Than Creating Heat!

Monday, December 27th, 2021

You might have already heard us talk enough this year about heat pumps, but we rarely compare heat pumps to other heating systems. Today, we’d like to talk about one of the cool reasons why homeowners are starting to switch to heat pumps, and that’s their ability to efficiently move heat instead of creating it.

Even when temperatures drop, there’s still heat in the environment around us. There’s just not enough heat for us to feel it and stay comfortable. In our warmer and more mild climate, heat pumps have a distinct advantage over other heating systems, and that’s their ability to move the heat that’s abundant in our atmosphere and propel it into your home where you can feel it.

Let’s learn about this unique type of HVAC in Palm Bay, FL, and don’t forget to call us if you need help!

What Kind of AC Works for You?

Monday, August 10th, 2020

Let’s take a second to fix a misconception that you might have about air conditioning. Stop worrying about whether or not you’ve got an air conditioner that works, and start thinking about whether it works for your home. What we mean by this is that all cooling systems are not as equal as you might think.

For instance, a central air conditioner that’s brand new in a home with faulty, leaky ductwork is never going to work well. Homeowners might think about having it constantly repaired or replaced, but unless your ductwork is addressed, the problem is never going to get better.

It’s time to change your perspective. What if we told you that an air conditioning installation in Palm Bay didn’t need air ducts to keep your home cool? If you’re scoffing at that sentence, or you’re starting to revert back to “well, my central AC still works,” then keep reading.
