Does My AC Dehumidify My Home’s Air?

Monday, May 24th, 2021

humidity-on-windowIn our local climate, humidity is as much an enemy to summer comfort as the temperature. We all know that humid days feel much hotter and less pleasant. This isn’t because humidity makes the air hotter. High humidity makes it harder for our bodies to release heat through perspiration. With more heat trapped in our bodies, the temperature of the air around us feels hotter. 

For example, on an 85°F day with a relative humidity of around 40%, the air will feel like it’s 85° or 86°F. But if the relative humidity is 75%—a common occurrence in Florida—that 85° will feel like it’s 95°. A huge difference!

But you have an air conditioner in your home, so that should take care of it, right? Well, not exactly. Your AC does dehumidify the air … but not enough that it could be considered a “dehumidifier.”

Allergy Season Can Be Much Better With Our IAQ Services

Monday, March 29th, 2021

Many people love spring, and it’s not hard to see why. The weather starts to warm up but doesn’t get too hot, the days get longer, and flowers start to bloom. 

Unfortunately, that last part also brings one of the “bad” parts of the season: a rise in allergy and asthma problems. Yes, spring means it’s also allergy season, and for many that means some unpleasant times. 

Even in a place like Florida, where warm weather is never far away, the seasonal cycles cause an increase in the pollen count of the air when spring starts. Allergy season problems don’t just stay outside—they become trouble for the indoor air quality in many homes. 

You have several medical options to decrease the hay fever problems of allergy season, but you may not have realized you have indoor air quality solutions as well. We can help you with the IAQ services to make allergy season easier for everyone in your household.

What to Know About Fall AC Installation

Monday, September 28th, 2020

air-conditioner-units-near-grassWhen is the best time to arrange for an AC installation in Wesley Chapel, FL? We can tell you the worst time: it’s whenever you need your current air conditioning system working the most and it abruptly fails on you. An emergency air conditioning replacement is a big deal, and it can mean going without vital household cooling while technicians get a new one in place.

So any time other than when you need an emergency summer replacement is a better time to get a new AC. And the fall is up there with the best time. If you think your AC has gone through its last summer of effective and efficient operation, fall is ideal for calling our technicians to schedule installing a new system. We don’t recommend waiting for the spring, since this is Florida and we never know when we’ll need our air conditioners working hard for us again.

A few things we’d like you to know about a fall AC installation:
