oopsie

There’s not much to running an air conditioner, right? Don’t you just “set it and forget it?”

For the most basic operation, yes—there’s really not much to running an air conditioner. However, when we talk about owning an air conditioner, it’s a completely different story. Homeowners need to exercise more responsibility in order to keep their air conditioners lasting as long as they possibly can.

In this post, we’ll go over three mistakes. Avoiding these will help you keep your cooling bills low and help avoid the need for air conditioning repair in Homestead, FL.

How Often Should I Replace My Home’s Insulation?

April 29th, 2019

loft-insulationJust having walls and a roof is not enough to separate the indoor air from the harsh, outdoor air. That’s where insulation comes in.

Insulation is essential for keeping warm air where it needs to be. In summer, that means keeping the warm air outside of your home. In winter, it means keeping the warm air inside the home.

Not only will insulation help you feel more comfortable, but it will also help keep your home cool or warm—meaning less money spent on running the HVAC system.

However, insulation isn’t perfect. It can deteriorate over time and might need to be reapplied every few years. Since insulation stays out of sight and out of mind, many homeowners don’t realize that it might be the reason for their rising heating or cooling bill.

In this post, we’ll go over how often insulation should be replaced and why you should get help finding the right type and amount of insulation.
