The Florida weather has no intention of letting up on us just yet, but in the next few months, we should see some lower temperatures. And if that’s the best Florida can give us, we’ll just have to take it.
Regardless of how the Florida weather wants to treat us, it doesn’t change the fact that we’ve put our air conditioners through the brutal summer heat for a whole season. That means now’s a good time as any to check up on your AC, and maybe even adjust your energy use.
Below are three tips for maximizing your efficiency at the close of the summer season.

Ductless mini-split systems are constantly praised for their efficiency, low operating costs, and ability to both heat and cool your home. But there’s one thing that always holds people back from being completely sold…
Where the heck are you supposed to install that giant air handler?
Since it’s required that one unit occupy each room you want to heat or cool, it means you’ll need to install a big, rectangular air handler on the wall. It’s understandable that this could seem obtrusive. In reality, many homeowners completely forget about their air handlers, but it’s hard to see that before you install one for yourself. In this post, we’ll explain the basic requirements for placing a ductless mini-split unit.

One part of the central air conditioner is the air conditioning units themselves. The other part is the ductwork, the series of vents that disperse the cooled air through your home. It makes sense that AC units can be replaced and changed over the years, but what about the ducts? Aren’t those more-or-less permanent fixtures?
Actually, the ducts can—and should—be replaced just as often as you would replace your air conditioner. Below are a few reasons why you’d want to replace the ducts.

There’s a number of reasons for why you could be getting low air-flow from your air conditioner. Admittedly, not all of them will require you to drop what you’re doing and immediately call an AC repairman. At the same time, some of them actually do require immediate attention, and ignoring them is the last thing you’d want to do.
In this post, we’ll go over causes of low air-flow from the best to worst case scenarios. If it sounds like any of them are happening in your AC, be sure to take the appropriate action.

Are you not sure if your AC is acting funny? It’s not surprising that many people let their AC continue to run despite showing signs of trouble. In fact, it’s quite understandable, since most homeowners aren’t air conditioning experts.
We’d never want you to neglect an air conditioning problem, so in this post, we’ll go over some clear signs that your AC is in trouble. If you experience any of them, it’s a good idea to turn off the system and immediately contact an expert of central AC repair in Miami.

If your air conditioner is nearly 10 years old and still working properly, the natural thing to assume might be that you’ve got a real sturdy AC on your hands.
We don’t blame you for thinking so, but the truth is that air conditioners are sensitive devices that balance performance and efficiency. As soon as the parts begin to wear down, you’ll be dealing with an AC that’s struggling to keep up with standard performance.
In this post, we’ll go over a few reasons how an old air conditioner can seriously drive down your energy efficiency (and drive up your energy bills). If you haven’t had issues yet, use this post as an opportunity to check-up on your AC.

Your air conditioner is probably pretty close to the top of your “things I don’t want breaking down during summer” list. You’ve probably already scheduled preventive maintenance to make sure that any preexisting problems are already dealt with before the days heat up too much. If not, you should.

Summer is the time of year when you have to be most careful of problems developing in your air conditioner. The system is being used more often than it normally is, which means the added strain can create new problems or exacerbate old ones. Preventive maintenance is ideal for lessening the odds of this happening and should be scheduled every spring to keep your air conditioner in proper shape. Even if you do that, though, you still need to be on-guard for signs that your system is experiencing trouble. The faster you can get your air conditioner repaired, the better off the system will be. Let’s go over one of the first major signs that homeowners notice that their air conditioner is in trouble: odd noises.
