So when something goes wrong with your air conditioner, you can’t ignore it. Instead, you need to reach out for professional service as soon as you can.

Dcut Sealing | Miami | Air On DemandImagine what would happen if you could see molecular particles. You would probably be a lot more disturbed when you realized just how dusty or dirty your home’s air quality was. We talk about indoor air quality a bit but sometimes it is harder to impress upon people just how important it is–if we could see the bits in the air that were swirling around, that would likely make things a lot easier on us but a bit more concerning for you.

With all that said, take a moment to think about what you might see if you did have the ability to visualize those little airborne particulates. Would you see a lot of dust? What about animal fur or pollen? Even worse, imagine being able to see bacteria or viruses. We know it isn’t a pretty picture but with the help of an indoor air quality system, that picture can improve quite a bit.

Make Sure You Schedule Maintenance for Your Pool Heater

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

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

With summer now over, you’re probably thankful that you have a pool heater installed to keep your swimming pool warm during the cooler weather. A properly installed pool heater will ensure that you receive the most use possible from your pool during the year, even through the winter.

Your pool heater, however, may not be ready for the work it will need to do. During the fall is an excellent time to schedule that important regular maintenance so the heater not only keeps the pool comfortable, but also won’t drain extra energy. Our team at Air on Demand offers quality maintenance service for pool heaters in Coral Gables, FL and the surrounding areas, so contact us today to arrange for your annual inspection and tune-up visit.

Why You Need Pool Heater Maintenance

A pool heater has maintenance needs similar to any home heating system: like furnaces, heat pumps, and boilers, a pool heater must have an annual check-up and inspection to see that it will work throughout the cooler months. Maintenance is also necessary to see that the pool heater lives up to its estimated lifespan.

Most pool heaters work through technology similar to that of a heat pump or air conditioner, and they need yearly service to see that their most crucial component—the compressor—is not in danger of burning out. Should a compressor burn out, the entire pool heater will usually need to be replaced. Electrical components in pool heaters will also start to wear down without maintenance, and will sometimes require replacements. Technicians take special care to investigate electrical components in a pool heater.

What Happens During Pool Heater Maintenance

When you contact us for a regular maintenance session for a pool heater, one of our skilled technicians will run through an 8-point checklist to see that the system works its best and does not require any repairs. The specific types of checks done with depend on the type of pool heater you have.

A technician will check on the refrigerant pressure, check and clean contacts, capacitors, the condenser coil, fan motors, and see that the compressor is working without extra strain. The technician will finish the session with a system efficiency test and a check on the temperature input and outflow. If anything appears amiss, the technician will advise you on repairs and parts replacement, and then help arrange for the work necessary.

Contact Us Today to Schedule Maintenance

If you haven’t had a tune-up and inspection for your pool heater in a few years, it is never too late to get started. Call Air on Demand today and ask about our maintenance services for pool heaters in Coral Gables, FL.

What Is the Difference between Rooftop Units and Other ACs?

Monday, July 21st, 2014

*Air On Demand no longer offers commercial HVAC services – view a full list of our air conditioning services here.
 
When it comes to commercial air conditioning, the great workhorses are rooftop units. People are accustomed to seeing rows of air conditioner cabinets along the top of office and retail buildings. Some commercial buildings still use “split” systems that are similar to the ones seen in residential housing, while restaurants and bars often use ductless heat pumps that send conditioned air wall-mounted blowers that are connected to an outdoor condenser. But the rooftop unit, because of its space saving quality and ease of service, continues to be the most popular for business use.

What actually differentiates rooftop units from other HVAC systems, aside from their location? We’ll look into this, and it may help you make the decision for what sort of heating and cooling system you want for your business location.

For detailed information on how rooftop units in Coral Gables, FL will work for your company, call Air on Demand and ask about commercial HVAC services today.

What Sets the Rooftop Unit Apart From Other ACs

Rooftop units are what are known as package units in the HVAC industry. A package unit is set apart from a split system, which is the common type of air conditioner/heat pump found in houses. A split system has an outdoor cabinet and an indoor cabinet with different sets of components. The outdoor cabinet has a compressor, fan, and a condenser coil; the indoor cabinet has a blower, dampers, air handler, and evaporator coil, and hooks into the ventilation system.

With a rooftop package unit, all the components are housed in one cabinet stored on the top of the building. Both sets of coils, to release and absorb heat, are in the cabinet along with the compressors and the fans. The unit connects directly into the building’s ventilation system to circulate the air.

Rooftop units can be configured either as air conditioners, or as heat pump capable of both heating and cooling. With installation of a humidistat on a rooftop unit, it can also control humidity and permit the ventilation of fresh air into the system; this is a benefit that split systems do not have, and it is a great asset for increasing indoor air quality.

Rooftop units come in an enormous array of types and sizes, and you will need to have professionals help you select the right unit or units to install for your business. The comfort of your employees, customers, and/or clients rests on making the correct decision for rooftop units in Coral Gables, FL, so make sure you have an experience commercial HVAC company handling the work for you: call Air on Demand for installation and AC repair in Miami. We carry Trane rooftop units from 1.5 tons up to 162 tons of cooling capacity.
