Summer is closing in, and if you haven’t yet scheduled your air conditioning maintenance in Clearwater, FL or elsewhere in our service area, this is one of the best times to get it done. We aren’t exaggerating when we say this is the most important service for your comfort during the coming summer.
But what if you can’t manage to have a maintenance tune-up and inspection scheduled before summer starts? You might think that you’ve missed the window and therefore you’ll have to wait until next spring to have it done.
This isn’t true! There is no “expiration date” when it comes to AC maintenance (or any type of HVAC maintenance). Although spring is an ideal time for it, the only absolute necessity is that you have it done annually.

What is the essential component of your home’s air conditioning system? Okay, this is a bit of a trick question, because there are multiple components in an AC that are essential for it to function properly. But there’s one that deserves the “essential” title more than the others: the compressor.
This is the device that places refrigerant under pressure so it will circulate through the rest of the system and go through the process of heat exchange. If it fails, it usually means the whole air conditioning system needs a replacement. The compressor is a pricy component, and it’s often not worth it to replace just the compressor.
So, if possible, you want to avoid a dead compressor in your AC. How can you do that? We have some advice that will help you keep your air conditioner around for as long as possible thanks to a healthy compressor.

Electric furnaces are common for home heating in St Petersburg, FL. Although it often costs more to run an electric furnace than a gas furnace, in Florida this is less of a concern because we don’t rely on heating as much during the year. For all-electric homes, electric furnaces are a cost-effective way to provide warmth during the occasional cool days of winter.
Although electric furnaces are generally reliable, they can sometimes create issues. One problem you may run into with your electric furnace during the season is tripped circuit breakers. Your furnace is working great when suddenly it shuts off and doesn’t turn back on. You check the circuit breaker panel and discover the breaker for the furnace has tripped. You reset it, but the problem keeps recurring. What’s going on?

Florida experiences winter differently than many other parts of the country. The season starts late and it can have warm days sprinkled throughout it. This makes it easy for homeowners here to ignore the importance of upkeep on their heating systems.
But regular maintenance is a vital part of having a heating system, especially a furnace. You may not use your furnace as often as someone in Nebraska, Maine, or Minnesota, but you will still rely on it. You want to make sure it comes on when you need it, doesn’t waste energy as it runs, and will work dependably for many years. Furnace maintenance in Clearwater, FL is the best method to see that this is exactly what you get from your furnace.

You probably haven’t given too much thought to your home’s air conditioning recently—mostly because of worries over hurricane issues. Thankfully, the year’s did less damage than expected to the Tampa Bay area, and many homeowners are going to turn their thoughts to more prosaic preparations for the rest of the year.
But why think about your air conditioning in St Petersburg, FL at this time? There are several reasons. First, your AC may have sustained water damage during the hurricane. If you have any suspicions about this, please contact our team right away to make an inspection and help you with decisions about what’s best for your AC. This also applies to your heating system.
Second, fall is always an excellent time to consider whether you need to replace an aging air conditioner that hasn’t sustained hurricane damage. You just went through an intense summer and had plenty of opportunities to see if your air conditioner is still working at its best. If it isn’t, the slower fall season easily accommodates scheduling an installation with our professionals.

When it gets hot outside, you can expect your air conditioning system to run for longer and spend less time cycled down. This is the AC operating as it’s supposed to, and usually nothing to worry about. You can work to reduce heat in your house by closing shades, and you can raise the thermostat to a higher (but still comfortable) temperature to shorten how long your AC runs.
But if the AC does seem like it’s running constantly, especially if it also doesn’t seem to be making the house appreciably cooler, then you may have a problem. Sometimes the solution is simple, but in other cases, you’ll need to call us for air conditioning repair in New Port Richey, FL. Let’s take a look at some of the common causes of the “runaway AC.”
