How Does Sealed Ductwork Help Your HVAC System?

December 12th, 2016

If you have a ducted HVAC system, then you likely have some understanding of just how important your ductwork is to the performance of your HVAC system. Unfortunately, not many homeowners think about this integral part of their heating and air conditioning system until something goes wrong—neglecting it for the most part. This is mostly because the ducts are hidden from view.

Ductwork also has no mechanical components, so it’s understandable to believe that they wouldn’t have very many issues. Air ducts often have leaks, however. They could be coming from small tears here and there throughout the ductwork, but even small leaks can add up to big problems. The solution to this isn’t a costly replacement of your ductwork (hopefully), but rather professional air duct sealing. Keep reading to learn some reasons why you should invest in this service.

Don’t Let These Condensate Drain Problems Get You Down

November 28th, 2016

Your AC system has been working hard over recent months to keep you cool by utilizing a refrigerant cycle to remove the heat from the air within your home and exhaust it outdoors. This helps lower the temperature in your home, and also helps reduce humidity. When there is too much humidity in the air, your evaporator coil helps to control moisture levels, while the condensate tray and drain help evacuate that moisture from your home.

Keep an Eye Out for These AC Condenser Damage Risks

November 21st, 2016

If you have a central air conditioning system, it is comprised of two separate units. One is located inside your home, and the other outside. The outside unit is called the condenser. It gets this name because this is where condensation occurs to release heat to the outdoors. This unit houses the compressor, a blower fan, and the condenser coil, in addition to the motors and capacitors that supply power to the components.

If the condenser develops problems, then it can severely damage or even stop the AC system’s ability to cool your home. Given how much we use our air conditioners here in Florida, there’s never a good time of the year for this to happen. While maintenance is one way to significantly reduce the risk of damage to your condenser unit, it’s not the only way. Keep reading to learn more.
