Most would rather patch up their old system over and over to keep it running than fork over the larger up-front investment for a brand-new system. Intuitively, this makes sense. After all, even moderate repairs to an air conditioner are dwarfed by the cost of installing an entirely new system, right? Well, yes and no. Installing a new AC system is often more affordable than keeping an older one up and running. In order to understand why, though, you’ll need to read on.

March 5th, 2018

As air conditioning contractors, we spend most of our time helping people lower the temperatures in their home. But as comfort specialists, we know that temperature is not the only factor in home comfort. Indoor air quality is just as important to your comfort and to your health.

Unfortunately, most indoor air quality solutions (like plug-in portable air purifiers) don’t truly resolve problems with germs or particulate in the air. For that, you need a whole-house solution, and we’ve got some suggestions for you.

Furnaces in our area run on electricity, too. So why would you choose one over the other? We go over this and other questions about furnaces and heat pumps in today’s guide. For more information, contact our friendly team!

January 22nd, 2018

cold-man-thermostat-handsWe often have to tell homeowners to get their heater serviced sooner than they think they need it. If you notice any strange sounds or drop in performance, it’s easy to ignore at first, but the issue can get much worse with time. There’s one problem, though, that will send any homeowner rushing to the phone book (or an online directory) to find the nearest, fastest service: a broken-down heater.

We may not use our furnaces very often in Florida, but if you own a home with central heating, you expect it to work when you do need it. There could be a simple solution, but, of course, you might need professional service. Read on to find out the reasons your heater won’t turn on, whether you can fix it yourself, and what kinds of problems require professional service.

January 8th, 2018

cleaning-vent-grate-acKeeping your own home clean can be tough. It’s something of a part-time job if the home is big enough, but you know it’s better to keep things clean than to deal with the consequences later. Vacuuming and dusting furniture is important for keeping allergens and pollutants from spreading around. And most homeowners know that you should keep electronics clean or else they may become damaged beyond repair.

These same ideas should be kept in mind when it comes to your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. Duct cleaning should be just as important as washing your clothes or dusting the shelves, in our opinion. We’ll show you why in today’s guide!
