Spring is here, and the allergies are too. This time of year, you may be used to taking allergy medication and spending money on doctor’s visits, or perhaps restricting outdoor time in order to keep allergies under control. But what if we told you that the biggest problem was likely within your own home?
We spend about 93% of our time indoors, according to a study by the EPA. And air quality inside of the house can be just as bad as outdoor air quality—if not worse.

Are you one of the many residents without central air conditioning in the Cutler Bay, FL area? You may have found other ways to cool down the house, like a room AC unit that doesn’t require ducts to run. However, most of these solutions are inefficient and undesirable.
If you are missing the duct system required for standard central AC, we have a solution. Ductless air conditioning is unlike any cooling system you’ve tried. Find out what makes a ductless mini-split cooling system different below, and call our team for more information.

In our previous blog, we discussed some options to try if your air conditioner is not working properly. The circuit breaker is something you can and should try if the AC unit shuts off completely, or will not start up at all. Look for the switch that controls your AC system and try resetting it (or replacing a blown fuse if you have an older electrical panel).
This may do the trick. However, you might find yourself with a broken-down air conditioner again shortly after all of this. Your AC system should not trip the circuit breaker that often, and it indicates a major problem within your air conditioner. Thankfully, your local contractors are here to help with AC service in Homestead, FL. Call Air On Demand for more information, and read on to find out a few possible explanations for this type of AC trouble.

When your air conditioning system doesn’t work properly, the first thing you check is probably the thermostat. This is a good start. While the issue often does not originate in the thermostat, it’s important to rule out any obvious issues. But do you really know what to check for?
Before you contact a technician, you may want to try these tips. Often, we show up to “fix” something the homeowner could have done with relative ease.

Some things are designed to be thrown away. That Styrofoam container you got with your takeout order? Trash it! But that plastic container you saved last night’s pasta in? That one can be reused time and time again.
Air filters that work with your home’s air conditioning system are the same way. There are some filters designed for only one use (although “one use” is about a month). Others can be used time and over and over—as long as you keep them clean.

When professional heating and cooling technicians clean the ducts in your home, you can count on cleaner air and a healthier living space. But we cannot say the same about when you let an amateur clean out your ductwork. Your ventilation system requires specialized equipment to make it clean, and that’s something that only a qualified heating and air conditioning technician can provide for you.

Air conditioners don’t last forever, like any other appliance in your home. But there are some things you can do to make yours last a little bit longer, and to keep it running efficiently while it’s around.
You take your car in for an oil change every few months because you want it to have a long, efficient life. Scheduling air conditioning maintenance offers similar benefits, but the technician comes to you!
So how often should you schedule an air conditioning maintenance appointment if you’re in the Miami, FL area? Our experts say: at least twice a year.

When our technicians show up to fix an air conditioner that is not quite doing its job, we often hear, “Does it just need more Freon™ ?” Refrigerant, the name of the chemical blend used in air conditioners ( Freon™ is a brand name, likely not used in your air conditioner) can evacuate from an air conditioner over time.
But the thing is, it’s not really supposed to.
