July 16th, 2018

heating-cooling-ventThis may be the summer when you decide that your current air conditioning system is done and it’s time for a new one.

Troubleshooting the AC Before Calling for Repairs

July 2nd, 2018

hand-on-thermostatRats, your air conditioning system isn’t working! Maybe it can’t keep up with the Florida heat and humidity, or it won’t turn on at all. Before you call our expert technicians for air conditioning service in Pensacola, FL, we recommend taking a couple of steps to see if there is a simple solution to the problem. We do not advise you go any further than what we’ve listed here. Don’t open up the HVAC cabinet and try to prod around in there with some tools. Unless you’re a licensed HVAC technician who’s certified to handle refrigerant (you’ll know if you are) there are no significant repairs you can do inside the system, and there’s the potential to make the problem worse.

Here’s what you can do if you’ve got an AC that won’t start, won’t cool, or won’t cool enough.

Why You Should Replace Window ACs With a Ductless System

June 18th, 2018

ductless-mini-split-heat-pumpMany homes in this part of Florida don’t have central HVAC systems with ductwork to send heated or cooled air to their rooms. This isn’t so bad for our mild winters when we only need occasional heat. But it means that during the summer these homes must rely on window air conditioning units to provide the comfort to combat the hot and humid days.

Window ACs may be fine for a small apartment, but they’re poor choices for homes for a number of reasons. Here are the main reasons we recommend getting rid of your window air conditioners.

How to Tell You Have Leaky Ducts

June 4th, 2018

inside-AC-ductQuick question: how well do you really know your ducts? If you’re being honest, probably not too well. That’s to be expected, since you can’t see most of the ductwork in your house. It’s hidden in the attic, the ceilings, and between walls.

We offer duct sealing in Pensacola, FL, and if you suspect you have leaky air ducts, all it takes to solve the problem is to get in touch with us.

But how can you know you have a problem that needs to be solved if you can’t see the ductwork? Let’s take a look at a few of the indicators you need duct sealing.

Commercial AC Maintenance—Don’t Let It Slip Past!

May 7th, 2018

industrial-ventilation-systemSpring is the time when our service professionals handle many residential air conditioning maintenance jobs. We encourage all homeowners to arrange for this vital tune-up and inspection service. But it’s just as important—possibly more important—for commercial buildings in the Pensacola area to arrange to have maintenance for their air conditioning and cooling systems. A home AC only needs to keep a few people comfortable, and if it starts to fail, it can mean discomfort and inconvenience for a couple hours while help arrives. An air conditioner for a Florida business that fails can mean major loss of revenue and even the need for the operation to shut down until help can arrive. If you own or operate a business in the Florida heat, you don’t want to risk this happening!

April 23rd, 2018

Why you shouldn’t make an AC purchase choice on your own

You can impulse buy many expensive items and still have the results come out all right. A car for example.

It will probably need to be replaced early as well.

Duct Cleaning Can Make a Difference in Allergy Season

March 26th, 2018

dandelion-in-fieldSpring is allergy season, although the effects can start as early as February.

How Geothermal Heating and Cooling Saves You Money

March 12th, 2018

geothermal-loopsGeothermal power is a rapidly growing industry. But many homeowners feel hesitant about making the switch over to using the energy of the earth to provide even partial power to their house, such as investing in a geothermal heat pump. We understand the concern: geothermal systems require putting in a series of ground loops in trenches around the property. It sounds like an expensive process—and perhaps the cost isn’t worth it.

You can expect a geothermal heating and cooling system to pay for itself in only a few years—and then keep on working for years after that, helping your bank account no matter the season.
