A Guide to Caring for Your Ductwork

December 5th, 2022

When you think of your air conditioning system, what are you actually thinking of? That outdoor unit that you whack weeds around? Maybe the thermostat on your wall that you use to regulate temperatures in your home? Those are both reasonable starting places when it comes to the air conditioning system. But there is more to your AC than meets the eye. We are talking specifically about your ductwork.

If you use a central air conditioner or a heat pump to cool your home, then you use air ducts to distribute this conditioned air throughout your living space. These ducts are most likely hidden away behind walls, above ceilings, below floors, in the attic, etc. But being out of sight does not mean they should be out of mind. Your air ducts will cause serious issues if they are not kept in great condition.

We know that the rest of the country is starting to hunker down for the colder months of the year. Around here though, the holidays are often marked by sunshine and warm weather. But just because we don’t see snow doesn’t mean it doesn’t get chilly at times.

The next few months are going to get cooler, especially at night, which means we will be relying a bit more on our heating systems. When you need to turn on your furnace or your heat pump, you should know that it will warm your home effectively and efficiently. Heating maintenance can ensure this is the case.

Living in Florida, it is easy to take our warm and sunny weather for granted. We get that. For the most part, your heating system is really the last thing on your mind.

Until you need it, that is. And especially until you need it and it’s not functioning properly!

While we may not have the dangerously cold temperatures and heavy snowfall that they get up north, we certainly have enough chilly weather in the winter season to need our furnaces to operate reliably.

And, since there is no such thing as a 100% reliable furnace, we definitely need to know what signs of furnace trouble to be aware of. Keep the following tips in mind, and let us know if you suspect the need for repairs.

Looking for a new way to cool your home? Or maybe you want a more efficient heating system so you can pay less for our brief heater use. Either way, it may be time to try something new from the conventional split system air conditioner that uses a single outdoor unit and indoor unit/air handler to send cool air through a network of ducts.

We wrote another blog post recently about some of the benefits of ductless systems, and in case you weren’t still convinced, below are some more reasons to make the plunge on this installation now!

Here in Florida, where heat and humidity are just a part of our daily life, our air conditioners run non-stop for a good chunk of the middle of the year, and sometimes for long stretches during the winter. If you are ready for a new air conditioning installation or the time for an air conditioning replacement has come, ductless may be the way to go.

Is a Heat Pump the Right AC Installation Choice for You?

October 10th, 2022

Fall isn’t usually the time for air conditioner replacement. But, if your air conditioner broke down completely or has a costly repair need that makes it more economically wise to just replace the system, you may not have a choice, especially since, with our climate, summer is really year-round.

Even though you may be tempted, we discourage you from rushing into this purchase. Doing so can leave you with a system that’s not properly matched for your home and therefore doesn’t perform as it should. Also, in the last decade, there have been many technological advancements in air conditioning, and you may discover you want something completely different than what you’re used to.

For instance, if you haven’t thought of it yet, you’d do well to consider the installation of a heat pump!

Sounds You Don’t Want to Hear Your Commercial AC Make

When you live somewhere that gets as hot as it does here, it goes without saying that businesses and commercial spaces need powerful and efficient cooling systems, and they need them to operate well on a daily basis. The peak of summer may be behind us, but that doesn’t mean warm temperatures are over, and therefore it’s vital that you keep an eye out in case your commercial AC started experiencing problems.

Or rather, you should keep an ear out–that’s right, one of the most common signs that something is wrong with an air conditioner is strange noises. Now, we get it, many if not most commercial air conditioners are on the rooftop, far away from a hearing distance. If, however, you can hear your commercial AC, the following noises are what you should listen for–and if you hear them you should give our team a call right away.
