Air On Demand Hosts Dinner for Local Veteran’s in Palmetto Bay

Monday, November 19th, 2018

Miami, FL – November 13, 2018 – Air On Demand, a local family owned air conditioning and heating company located in Cutler Bay, hosted a Veteran’s Day dinner at The American Legion in Palmetto Bay on Sunday, November 11th.

Every year, on Veteran’s Day, the American Legion of Palmetto bay hosts an “Early Bird Dinner”  in which they provide freshly prepared meals for their local veterans, American Legion Members, and their families. This year’s dinner marks the first year that a local company sponsored this event.

“As a local and family owned business, we [Air On Demand] make it a priority to be involved in the local community through sponsorships and event participation to get to know our community, the families, and other local businesses. This year, it was a great privilege to be able to not only honor our veterans, but to help a local organization in the process.”

With the help of volunteers and caterers, Air On Demand was able to provide a Veteran’s Day meal for over 70 veterans and family members.

“This was such a great event, and we hope to make a tradition out of this,” says Mike, an American Legion member and a long-time equipment specialist at Air On Demand.

Monday, February 6th, 2017

digital-thermostat-handWhen 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.

Can Insulation Keep Cool Air in?

Monday, June 1st, 2015

Picking up an air filter for your HVAC system is as easy as going to your local hardware store and grabbing the one that fits your unit—right? Not if you want quality filtration for your indoor air quality. As it turns out, air conditioning and heating filters were not originally designed to improve our health. In reality, a filter’s first function is to keep debris out of the HVAC system. Imagine if a large piece of debris jammed a motor. This would result in a costly repair, which is why a filter first and foremost protects the unit.

Some of the Unusual Movies Released for Valentine’s Day

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

Hollywood has always tried to match movies up to the seasons to draw droves of viewers to the theaters: October is packed with fright-offerings, while the winter holidays skew toward warm and pleasing family films (as well as Oscar hopefuls). Valentine’s Day falls in an odd spot when it comes to the movie release calendar, however, since February tends to be a slower time for the film industry. The studios are as likely to slot strange movies that don’t fit anywhere else in their annual schedules into the Valentine’s Day weekend as they are films with powerful romantic appeal.

So, while the second weekend of February has featured hugely successful romantic comedies like Hitch, The Wedding Singer, and (of course) Valentine’s Day, some truly weird choices have debuted in this weekend as well. And a few have even gone on to tremendous success despite the bizarre match with the holiday. Here are a couple of the odder Valentine’s Day movie releases:

  • Dracula (1931): Yes, this Halloween perennial and the start of Universal Studio’s Classic Monsters actually came out on Valentine’s Day! But perhaps this makes some sense, as the Dracula legend has often received a “doomed lover” approach in the many years since Bela Lugosi made the aristocratic vampire a screen icon.
  • The Silence of the Lambs (1991): Does any film seem less appropriate for Valentine’s Day than this unnerving and sometimes very violent psychological thriller? What’s even more astonishing than the film’s release date is that The Silence of the Lambs eventually nabbed the Oscar for Best Picture, an almost unheard of occurrence for a movie released so early in the year.
  • Daredevil (2003): This Marvel comic adaptation featuring Ben Affleck as a blind superhero does contain a romantic subplot, but the stronger connection to Valentine’s Day may just be that Daredevil wears a bright red costume.
  • A Good Day to Die Hard (2013): The least successful of the Die Hard film franchise, this is an excellent example of a studio dropping a film into a weekend where it doesn’t fit in the hopes that it works as counter-programming. (It didn’t.)
  • Wayne’s World (1992): Now here is an example of counter-programming that clicked with audiences. This comedy based on a Saturday Night Live sketch turned into one of that year’s biggest hits and spawned a sequel.

Whether you celebrate Valentine’s Day with a trip to the movie theater, or you have your own special plans, everyone here at Air On Demand hopes you and your loved ones have a wonderful weekend.

What Is the Best Type of Heater for a Swimming Pool

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015

*Air On Demand no longer offers pool heater services. Please visit our service page to learn more about our Florida air conditioning services.

When you bought a new pool or purchased a home with a pool in South Miami, you may never have expected you would need a pool heater. But as the months went by, you probably quickly discovered that using the pool in the summer months can be an unpleasant experience. Pool heaters can allow you extra months of enjoyment, exercise, and family fun, but there are actually a few different types of swimming pool heaters to choose from.

When you decide it’s time to heat up your pool for the winter, call the experts at Air on Demand for expert installation and advice on pool heaters in South Miami.

Gas swimming pool heaters used to be the norm, using the natural gas from the utility company to power the outside unit. Gas units operate using combustion to generate heat and a heat exchanger to transfer that heat to the water. Water continuously cycles through the unit and back to the pool. Gas swimming pool heaters are still widely used, but they’re generally considered best for heating a pool for only a short period of time. This is best for pools that are used infrequently and need a type of heater that will work quickly.

Heat Pump Pool Heaters

But there are other options for you to choose from, and it’s better to let a professional help you select the proper unit. One of the most popular types in use today is the heat pump pool heater. These are extremely efficient because they don’t actually have to generate heat. Instead, they use a refrigerant blend to absorb heat from the outside and move it to the condenser coil. As it condenses it gives off heat, which transfers to the water cycling through the unit and back to the pool repeatedly.

Heat pump pool heaters are one of the most efficient and effective units out there, but it’s important to let a professional help you to make a final decision. Any pool heater must be sized to meet the needs of your pool and the outdoor climate.

Call Air on Demand for quality professional installation by experts trained on pool heaters in South Miami.

Air On Demaind: A Greener Business

Green Business | Miami | Air On DemandThe Pinecrest Tribute: E-mail vs. Paper? The Answer Does Make A Difference

According to a recent Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) report:
• Nearly 4 billion trees per year are cut down due to the paper industry.
• Today, the world consumes about 300 million tons of paper each year.
• The U.S., which contains only 5% of the world’s population, uses 30% of all paper.

If we look at the big picture, reducing paper waste affects not only trees. One must think about the entire process involved in producing printed material. What impact does the machinery and trucks used to harvest the trees have? What about the factories and chemicals that are used when making paper? Have you ever seen the smoke stacks at a paper factory? How about the vehicles that are used in transporting the paper from the factory to a local printer? Then how does
the printed material make it to the end user? The full impact is almost immeasurable. At Air On Demand, we have dedicated ourselves to finding ways to reduce those numbers and our impact on the environment. We have moved our Service Technicians from the old style “carbon service receipt” to new modern laptops. We are using laptops and wireless internet to communicate and dispatch real-time information to our Service Technicians in the field. All service receipts are completed using mobile applications, no more “old carbon” receipts. We don’t even have to print a “paper” receipt unless a customer requests it. In many cases, we just e-mail customers their service receipts. Not only does this new technology help us reduce paper waste, it allows us to be more efficient and allows us to give our customers the best service available! For more information, please call Air On Demand at 305-259-5669.

Air On Demand provides top quality air conditioning, heating, indoor air quality, ductwork, and commercial HVAC service to Miami, Pinecrest, Cutler Bay, and the surrounding areas.
