Heat pumps tend to be the main home climate control systems found around Homestead. This is because they have the ability to both cool your home down (which they will be used to do most of the year) and heat the home (on those few days of the year here in Florida when the temperatures drop far enough.)
These are great systems to have around in the modern Florida home. But they don’t last forever, especially not if they aren’t taken care of. Your heat pump may look unassuming being a compact block on your wall but is actually a somewhat complicated system.
A system like this needs to be kept up through maintenance and repairs by a professional HVAC contractor in Homestead, FL. Let’s discuss how you can tell that the time for repairs has come!

Your home comfort involves more than just the temperature of the air blasting through your ventilation. Your home indoor air quality (IAQ) plays a large role in how comfortable your home is. In fact, your IAQ can actually make or break your cooling system’s ability to keep you comfortable.
We know it might seem strange to think about but it is true. That is why it is so important to make sure that you keep your IAQ in mind throughout the year. And, in turn, if you start noticing that there are signs that your IAQ is on a downturn, refer to our technicians to discover ways to improve it! That is why we offer indoor air quality services in Homestead, FL after all!

This is Florida so most, if not all of us, are concerned with keeping cool and comfortable throughout the year. You work hard to make sure that your air conditioning system is kept in great condition with regular maintenance and timely repairs. You even take the extra step of checking on your home’s sealing and insulation to make sure that none of the cool air your AC produces is being wasted.
Now, what if we told you there was one more factor that could seriously help or hinder the efficiency of your air conditioner? Because there is, and its the thermostat. It’s true! One of the best ways to help your AC unit do the best job it possibly can is by making sure your thermostat is up to snuff. And a smart thermostat capitalizes on this.

It is the season of giving and every once in a while it is nice to treat yourself to a gift. It’s even better if the gift is one that benefits everyone in the house. What we are talking about is, of course, enjoying the gift of a new air conditioning unit.
We know that choosing to go for an AC replacement in Coral Gables is never a truly easy decision. And no one should go into the job of replacing their unit without knowing that it is the right choice for them.

It is officially the holiday season and this is not the time of year that you are going to be okay with wasting any of your hard-earned money. That is why you take such good care of your home comfort system after all; you want to make sure that your HVAC system is running as efficiently as possible so not one dime goes to waste. A large part of this is making sure that the air that you pump into your home is of good quality.
Keeping the doors and windows shut, cleaning or changing your filters regularly, and even investing in a good air purifier are all things that one can do to make sure they enjoy good indoor air quality.
But did you know that your attic insulation has the ability to affect your IAQ? If you didn’t know this fact before, you may want to take a trip upstairs to make sure your insulation isn’t compromising the air within your home!

In most cases, the average person doesn’t know how their air conditioner works. They just know that when it does it produces the cold air they want and when it doesn’t things can get uncomfortably warm really fast.
When it stops working, most of us wonder why. Your local HVAC technician can help explain this to you but it doesn’t go far if you don’t know which part does what. With that said, we also think you should know that understanding some of the vital parts that keep your air conditioner running will help alert you to when they are struggling and in need of a tune-up or repairs long before these issues become too expensive or, worse, irredeemable.
If and when you notice that your cooling system is struggling, your best option is to call the pros for air conditioning repair in Homestead, FL. Doing this during the seasons when you might not need to use your AC as much is a great idea to ensure your long-term comfort.

Dogs, cats, rabbit, birds, the list goes on. So many of us have furry critters that we consider a part of the family. We love to pet them, cuddle with them, and we brush or bathe them when it is needed (if they let us that is.)
But even those of us that groom our pets everyday are going to run into stray fluffballs. It is unavoidable and that is what our air filters are for! These handy parts of our home comfort systems work hard to filter out as much fur dust and other debris as possible out of the air we breathe.
With that said, these systems have their limits. Eventually any filter will get overloaded and won’t be able to filter well anymore. This will happen a little faster too if extra debris and fur has been piling up into your home’s ductwork.

When you have to purchase a new air conditioning unit, whether for a brand new install or to replace an old system, you want to make sure that your new one is worth your investment. After all, purchasing a cheaper unit that doesn’t work as well or is less energy efficient will simply ending up costing you more cash in the long run (but you already knew that).
The current problem you may be facing is which one to choose. There really are a lot of brands and types of air conditioners to select from and it can make a lot of consumers feel overloaded by the plethora of options.
We might be able to give you some clarity in this arena because we know the benefits that come with an Air On Demand American-made unit! If you would like to learn more about these units being offered by our Miami air conditioning company, read on (and, should the urge strike you, reach out to us to schedule an appointment for an installation).

Did you know the air you breath can impact your health? We aren’t just talking about smog; we mean the amount of dust, pollen and other contaminants in the air that might enter your lungs, can have an effect on your health. What’s more, this debris can impact the health of your air conditioner over time too, making it harder for your system to run the more it builds up.
Thank goodness you have an air filter!
The filter within your air system is able to, well, filter out a lot of stuff that you might not want in your house, or in your throat! But even this handy little part of your cooling system has its limits. The question is, what can you do to help care for it and improve the health of you and your AC?
