Air Conditioning Issues That Lead to Compressor Damage

Monday, May 18th, 2015

Many experts describe the compressor as the “heart” of the AC, as this is the part responsible for pumping refrigerant (perhaps best described as the life-blood of the AC). Without a compressor, your air conditioner could not run, and replacing a compressor is no simple task. In fact, if it is time to replace the compressor, you often have to replace the entire outside unit—which comes with quite a price tag.

How Can Duct Repair Improve Your Air Conditioning?

Monday, April 20th, 2015

*Air On Demand no longer offers duct sealing or repair services. Please visit our ductwork service page to learn more about our ductwork options.

The ducts in your home provide a pathway from the air handler to the vents in your home. Any disruption in this path—kinks in the ductwork, holes, cracks, or even a collapsed duct—makes it a lot more difficult for air to move efficiently. Cold air begins to fill unoccupied spaces, such as the attic or crawlspace, and though it may still enter your home, it does so slowly. This means that you end up paying extra to cool the living spaces, which is why prompt duct repair is so important.

3 Reasons to Schedule Air Conditioning Maintenance Today

Monday, April 6th, 2015

Are you considering passing on your annual air conditioning maintenance visit this year? You may want to think again. Scheduling maintenance now means you likely won’t encounter any stress about your AC system later on in the season. Annual AC maintenance gives you peace of mind that your unit will perform at its best throughout the season, and that any repairs will be few and far between. Whether it has been five years or one year since your last maintenance check, now is the best time to schedule a visit, and here are three good reasons to call today.

1. Maintenance Improves Efficiency

One of the primary reasons homeowners get on a maintenance schedule is that regular maintenance can help a homeowner to save money over the years. A lot of dust and debris can collect over the span of a year, and cleaning off some of the parts allows them to run in top condition once more. When everything works together as intended, your unit can run as efficiently as it was designed to.

2. Prevent the Need for Repairs

Regular air conditioning maintenance can reduce the chances that you will need to make any major repairs for the rest of the cooling season. This is because a one-time tune-up involves steps which remediate some of the problems that commonly occur with AC systems throughout the year. Straightening bent coils, for example, allows heat to dissipate outdoors with ease. Tightening electrical connections prevents the need for electrical repair.

3. Extend the Lifespan of the Unit

If you could hold off on air conditioning replacement for just a year longer, wouldn’t a maintenance visit be worth it? It’s no secret that air conditioning systems do not come cheap, so keep your unit around for longer by taking one day out of the year for a visit from an experienced technician.

Call the professionals at Air on Demand for air conditioning service in Homestead, FL. We can help you to prepare for warmer weather with a thorough AC tune-up and full inspection.

Is It Too Early in the Year for Air Conditioning Maintenance in Miami, FL?

Monday, February 17th, 2014

Although it’s still possible for the last month of winter to hurl a few chilly surprises at us here in Miami, the upcoming weather forecast already has us moving toward weather in the upper 70s and low 80s. As strange as it may sound to people who live in regions of the country where icy weather is still normal, here in Florida now is an ideal time to start thinking about taking care of our air conditioners and getting them ready for summer.

If you haven’t yet scheduled your yearly maintenance for your heat pump or air conditioning in Miami, FL, call Air on Demand today for an appointment. With more than 10 years of experience and a team of NATE-certified technicians on staff, we are one of your best choices for AC maintenance.

  • Easier scheduling: It’s already starting to warm up, and more and more ACs will start turning on. That means more people will start to need repairs and perhaps emergency service. Before the calendars for HVAC specialists begin crowding up, leap in and schedule your AC’s yearly maintenance visit.
  • Avoid an emergency breakdown: We mentioned surprise cold days above. Well, there can also be surprise scorchers with heavy humidity in store for us as well. If your AC isn’t tuned up with all its necessary repairs done, it might abruptly break down when you have to push it hard to overcome the heat. Beat the surprise heat and have maintenance done sooner rather than later.
  • Catch repairs before they get worse: Because you will get some use out of your air conditioner in the months before it shifts over to regular operation, any repair needs in the AC will start to grow worse from the stress. If you wait until summer for maintenance to catch these problems, they can be more expensive to fix. Take care of those repair needs before the early cooling season increases them.

Scheduling Maintenance is Easy

You don’t have to look far to find quality maintenance for your air conditioning in Miami, FL. You just have to call Air on Demand and ask about out maintenance plan. If you enroll with us, you’ll also receive a 20% discount on all repairs and 5% off new equipment and select parts.
