The air filter in your HVAC (heating and air conditioning) system is an important part of staying cool, comfortable, and healthy. It keeps particles from damaging your AC system and recirculating in the air you breathe. But an additional system is necessary if you want to protect your home from the smallest and most damaging of airborne contaminants. And a system that uses UV light may be just the solution for your home, especially if household members suffer from asthma or severe allergies.

Temperatures outside are cooling down here in Florida, and we’re experiencing a time when we don’t have to run our cooling systems or our heating systems very much throughout the day and night.

Changing the air filter is one of the easiest ways to maintain an AC system. Unfortunately, it is an overlooked task that often goes neglected for long periods of time.

A professionally installed ductless AC system with an outdoor unit and multiple indoor blower units is one of the best solutions for homeowners without any central system, and it is well worth the cost and the time for installation. Here’s why we think it’s time for you to make the upgrade.
