Not every home in America comes with an air conditioning unit installed. Large portions of the northern part of the country go without. But here in Florida a functioning HVAC system is critical and maintaining your system with regular check-ins from your HVAC company is all part of the luxury of having air conditioning.
Your HVAC system delivers fresh, breathable air to every room in your home. It keeps you cool in the summer, warm in the winter and comfortable all year long. It's an important part of your family, which is why having a HVAC maintenance plan in place is so important--to your health, happiness, comfort and bank account.
Winters in Central Florida aren't all that bad. The sun still shines, the grass is still green and it almost never snows. But it's still winter, which means that as the temperature drops your heating bill can rise--especially if you haven't winterized your home.
Have you ever come home, and your home is stifling hot? Or maybe your heater wouldn’t turn on to take away a morning chill? Then you know the inconvenience that a broken HVAC system can bring. However, did you know that regular HVAC maintenance can prevent these problems from happening? Regular maintenance is a small investment that comes with big rewards, like your family’s comfort.
If you've ever had the displeasure of your HVAC system failing to work when you need it the most, a maintenance contract may be the right choice for you. HVAC Maintenance contracts are sometimes avoided by people hoping to save money or viewing preventative care as unnecessary but that is far from the truth. There are many benefits to establishing a maintenance agreement with your favorite service and repair company.
Refrigerant, or coolant as it is also called, is an essential part of every HVAC system. If your air conditioning unit is not cooling properly, a lack of the necessary amount of refrigerant is very often the source. To provide cool and comfortable air throughout your home, the levels of coolant must be adequate and stable. This is why a refrigerant check is always included in any maintenance visit or tune-up. Spotting the signs of low refrigerant is not a difficult task, but here are the top three signs that typically point to this issue.
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.
Florida is currently in the midst of hurricane season, and it is thankfully quiet so far this year. Knowing how to prepare your air conditioning unit for a potential hurricane is good knowledge to have, especially before a disaster is on the horizon. It can be a little hectic and difficult to find the information you need last minute and buying replacement items such as a/c covers during a hurricane scare can be even harder.
Not all air conditioning unit failures happen suddenly without warning. Often there are signs and symptoms of an upcoming failure before it happens. Knowing exactly what to look for is half the battle, the other half is not ignoring the signs and scheduling service.
