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.
Summer is in full swing and the intense heat is undoubtedly bringing out the best, or worst of your HVAC unit. The realization that your air conditioning system is no longer performing to your expectations, especially when it is needed most, can cause a serious dilemma for a fix. Repairs or long overdue maintenance can often be the solution to a drop in efficiency or problems. However there are definite situations where replacing your HVAC system is the right choice to make in the long-term.
We’ve all been there: You want to call in an expert to get something done around the house, but you sure don’t want to spend the rest of your day waiting for someone. On top of that, there’s always the possibility that whoever you call won’t be able to fix the problem you’re having or even diagnose it the right way.
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.
It’s May, and for Floridians, that means summer is all but here. What most people think of as “spring” lasts only a short time in much of the Sunshine State. From March to mid-September, many locals will be experiencing “spummer.” The change is particularly striking for those living inland in the central part of the state. It can feel like the weather transformed overnight. Once it does, the higher heat and humidity is here to stay.
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.
As spring rolls around, many people in Florida think about buying a new air conditioning unit. It won’t be long before most Florida residents are running their air conditioning every day – and many have already gotten started. With that in mind, it’s logical to consider a new unit as a way of saving on electricity and cutting down HVAC maintenance.
Don’t look now, but everything in your home is getting smarter. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the concept for the future’s smart indoor spaces: a world where your utilities and appliances will be linked together using advanced sensors.
The state of California made the news in March with a statewide ban on HFCs, a type of chemical in many cooling devices. HFCs – formerly known as hydrofluorocarbons – have seen widespread use in refrigerants for decades, predating today’s environmental standards.
It's March, and Floridians know what that means: Air conditioners will be running well into the fall! Many areas of Florida had a mild, but long-lasting winter this year. Now, the heat is starting to settle in. Of course, that means many residences will be using the air conditioner throughout the day for a good portion of the year to come.
