The Fan in Your AC Isn’t Working? Let’s See Why …

June 8th, 2020

Spinning-fan-closeup.Your air conditioning system contains two fans, both of which are essential for it to provide your home with cool comfort during a Florida summer. The first fan is the indoor fan, the one you hear whirring through most of the day. This fan is responsible for circulating air through the rooms of the house. It also pushes warm air from the return air ducts over the evaporator coil so the air is cooled down. The outdoor fan does the job of exhausting the heat released through the condenser coil to the outside; if it doesn’t work, the AC can’t remove heat from the indoor air.

Because these fans are busy mechanical devices, they can wear down and fail at some point. Regular maintenance can help to head off this problem, but it can’t stop all malfunctions. At some point, you may discover one of the fans isn’t running and your house is rapidly getting hot. Usually, you will need air conditioning repair in Tampa, FL to get the fan working again.

Below are some of the reasons you may have failed AC fans.

Get Rid of Those Window ACs! Here’s What’s Wrong With Them

May 25th, 2020

ac-plastic-grillMany homes in Florida were built without ductwork, coming from a time when central air conditioning wasn’t as common as it is today. For these homes, the best way to enjoy cool air from an AC is from window units. You know them: large, boxy objects fit into an available window, with the large compressor section outside to release the heat drawn from the inside air. When window ACs were first introduced back in the 1950s, they were a revolution in making cooling available for houses.

Today, however, we have to be honest: window units have many problems—and with the availability of ductless mini split systems, they aren’t the only way to have cooling in homes without ducts. We recommend you make installing a ductless system to replace those window ACs as your next air conditioning services in New Port Richey, FL.

When Ductless Mini Splits Are a Big Advantage

May 11th, 2020

ductless-unit-blowing-airWe are proud to be a Port Richey, FL air conditioning company that offers ductless mini split installation, repair, maintenance, and other services. The technology of ductless mini splits (a.k.a. ductless mini split heat pumps) is relatively new to homes in the US, although they’re already popular in many businesses. As more people discover the advantages of having ductless heating and cooling systems, the more people want them installed for their homes.

But going ductless isn’t ideal for all situations. If you live in a house with extensive ductwork for an existing central AC and heater, a ductless heat pump usually isn’t the best choice for system replacement—you’ll want to benefit the most from having a ventilation system already in place. However, there are still situations when having a ductless mini split is a good idea. Below we’ve listed times when going ductless has big advantages.

air-conditioner-evaporator-coilWe know that summer may feel like it’s still a long way off, but it pays to make plans for hotter weather when it comes to your air conditioner.
