The unrelenting heat of summer is the worst time to deal with a malfunctioning air conditioning system. Despite keeping up with regular maintenance, slowdowns and other problems can still occur. When your home or office is hot and unbearably muggy, all you truly want is your a/c to work, efficiency and all other issues are the last things on your mind. Here are three common a/c problems and their likely causes.
Our great state of Florida may have a lot of benefits, but a short and mild allergy season is not one of them. We rank at the top on several lists for having a miserable and enduring effect on allergy sufferers. While many residents simply do their best to avoid triggers and take medication, you shouldn't overlook the help your HVAC unit can provide. Innovation and advances in filtering have made it so your hvac can help you breathe easy as well as stay cool.
Florida gets a jump start on the warm weather that many states can only expect during the summer months. This means ensuring your air conditioning unit is working to the best of its ability should be done long before the dog days of summer hit. Depending on your personal comfort preference, you may already be running your A/C with recent temperatures in the 80s.
After a day out in the heat, few things are more satisfying than relaxing in your air-conditioned home. As long as that cool air is flowing, you may believe that all is well until it isn't. Summer maintenance for your HVAC system is not simply about keeping it running, but also about keeping your monthly energy usage costs down at a time when they will be highest.
Welcome to Florida’s warm season, also known as “most of the year!” It’s the middle of May, and that means it’ll soon be hot enough in most of Florida to fry an egg on the pavement. Lucky ducks living on the coast can enjoy a nice breeze and lower average temperatures, but even they have some sweltering days ahead.
Staying comfortable in Florida relies on having the best air conditioning for the job. While many homes have central AC, there are also those – like older homes or smaller bungalows – that tend to rely more on window air conditioning. They’re also popular for use after a hurricane or other severe storm when a power outage has your the temperature in your home rising.
While the rest of the country sits in the grip of a winter deep freeze, Florida residents already know the truth: For us, winter is nearly over and summer will be here before you know it! It’s true that winter comes but once a year, but things are a little bit different in the Sunshine State. Much of Florida sees only about two weeks of winter temperatures and then it’s back to balmy 70’s and 80’s – on the way to the 90’s and beyond that summer brings.
A residential heating and cooling system is easy to forget about until something goes wrong. Since it may go months or even years between maintenance periods, it’s not unusual for a HVAC to accumulate a number of small problems that can be difficult to catch on to. Then, all of a sudden, those issues rack up until they cause a serious performance problem.
To extend the lifespan of your HVAC system, the onset of fall is an opportune time to consider a few maintenance practices. With dipping temperatures that give your air conditioning a break it’s the perfect time to schedule your seasonal maintenance and repairs.
Central Florida summer temperatures often soar above the 90s, and humidity levels hover near or at 100% for the majority of the season. This sweltering and sultry weather can be miserable for you and your family while outdoors, but you can always depend on a comfortably cool oasis to retreat to in your own home. Or can you? This summer, don’t take your home’s interior air conditioning for granted.
