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.”

Working with a technician is the easiest way to get to the bottom of your AC woes; this post will also help you start to identify what could be causing your air conditioning to not effectively cool your home.

Air conditioning systems don’t yet have a way to self-diagnose malfunctions and clearly communicate them to homeowners. (Although we have no doubt this technology will emerge in the future.) Instead, homeowners have to know the various warning signs of an AC that’s struggling. One of the most common warnings is an odd noise. We’ve written before about some of these AC strange sounds to listen for.
You can approach warning sounds from the other side as well: what sounds should you expect to hear from your AC when it’s running in good condition? In this post we’ll go over the standard noises an AC makes to give you a better sense of when something sounds wrong so you can act on it and call us for air conditioning repair in Tampa, FL!

We understand that the thought of an upgrade can seem daunting, but our professionals are the ones to make it easy. We understand air conditioning in Wesley Chapel, FL and we always treat our professionals like family. We’ll make sure that you receive the air conditioning you deserve this season.

Humidity is a major factor when it comes to comfort in Florida. High humidity during the summer can make warm days feels sweltering. Humidity itself doesn’t actually increase heat: what it does is make it harder for the human body to release heat through perspiration. When your body cannot release as much heat through the skin, you’ll feel hotter. A day when the relative humidity is above 80% will feel around 8° to 10° hotter than what the outdoor thermometer reads.
Controlling indoor humidity makes it easier to stay cool. Think about the 8–10° difference: that could mean the difference between whether you need to run your AC or keep it off. But does your air conditioning system have any control over the humidity? We’ll look into that below.

For most parts of the country, the arrival of March doesn’t mean immediate relief from cold weather. That will have to wait until late April or even June, and the hottest weather of summer is still far away.
It’s different here in the Tampa Bay area, however. Hot weather never really goes away, and by March we can already start to experience the warm weather we’re known for on a regular basis. This means we need to think early about taking care of our home’s air conditioning systems so they’re prepared to take on the most intense heat of the year.
And what’s the best way to prep an AC? It’s with professional air conditioning maintenance in Port Richey, FL from our technicians. When you join our Premier Service Agreement, you’ll have the regular preventive maintenance that will help you enjoy trouble-free and lower-cost cooling through the middle of the year and far into the fall and the hot flare-ups of winter.

We think that heat pumps are one of the best ways for homes in the Tampa Bay area to enjoy year-round comfort. A heat pump works like an AC—a powerful AC that can handle the heat and humidity of our summers. But a heat pump can also work in reverse as an energy-efficient heating system. Although a heat pump can struggle to provide heat in freezing temperatures, we don’t have to worry about those days in Tampa Bay—a heat pump can stay energy-efficient through the winter.
Because heat pumps change between two different modes, heating and cooling, they can fall prey to a specific malfunction: failure to change from one mode to another. For most heat pumps, the default mode is cooling, so they can run afoul of a problem where they won’t switch into heating mode.
If you have this problem with your heat pump, you may need us for heat pump repair in Land O’ Lakes, FL. We’ll take a look at why this might be happening with your heat pump.
