5 Signs You Need AC Repairs Now

Monday, September 23rd, 2019

vent-register-on-wallLet’s face it: the fall season does not mean your air conditioner will be turning off anytime soon. Florida tends to enjoy keeping the climate warm and humid year-round, which is why your cooling system sees a lot more action than your heating system.

Because your AC tends to take on more work, it also sustains more wear and tear. Especially with the risk of thunderstorms and continued high heat on the horizon, you will want to make sure that your equipment is in peak working order, keeping your home dry and cool.

Before your air conditioner gives out when you need it the most, you should determine if it might be time for a repair.

“Can I Remove Ice from my AC Myself?”

Monday, August 26th, 2019

ice-on-air-conditionerThe short answer to this is “no,” but we promise to elaborate.

Essentially, trying to scrape ice off of your air conditioner yourself could end up further damaging it, plus removing the ice doesn’t solve the problem that caused the ice buildup to begin with!

So, what does cause that ice buildup? It’s not a normal occurrence, despite your air conditioner cooling the air. We understand how it could be easy to believe that ice might be involved, but transferring heat from one place to another using refrigerant as an air conditioner does, does not use ice, and shouldn’t create it either.

What to Do about Mold Lurking in Your Ducts

Monday, May 6th, 2019

microscopic-view-of-mold-growthIt’s not pretty to think about—actually, it’s literally not pretty—but mold is a big problem where we’re from. High humidity and long summers create the perfect environment for mold and mildew buildup. And if your home has excess moisture in it, mold can even grow there.

Where’s the best place in your home for mold to thrive? It’s your ductwork, where it is cool and damp for the majority of the year as you use your air conditioner. There’s one way to prevent this, and that’s the installation of a UV air purifier. Also called germicidal lights or UV lights, a UV air purifier is harmless to people and pets, but kills microorganisms lurking in ductwork.

But what if the mold is already there? Is there anything you can do besides rip out all your ductwork and start from scratch? (Please don’t do this! There’s another way!)
