Since we’re deep into the summer and the air conditioning system in your house is running regularly throughout the day, it’s easy to imagine that it’s too late to have any “preventive” work done on the AC. The season for regular maintenance has come and gone, and if you didn’t get it scheduled because life got too busy in spring, well you’ll just have to wait until next year. The expiration date has passed.

But that’s not how maintenance works! Yes, spring is the ideal time to call a Tampa, FL air conditioning company to arrange for a maintenance inspection and tune-up for your air conditioner. But it’s not a terminal point. We’re happy to tell you that it’s not too late to schedule your air conditioning maintenance through our VIP Club membership. It’s important that the air conditioning maintenance gets done each year, and if it happens late, it’s far better than never.

Efficiency Is Important for a New AC, But It’s Not the Only Thing!

Monday, May 4th, 2020

Purchasing a new central air conditioning system is often stressful for homeowners. Not quite as stressful as buying a new car, but the workings of air conditioners and their many stats aren’t something people are familiar with. And getting the right new AC installation in Tampa, FL is essential, since you’ll rely on it for many days of the year, all around the year.

If you’re currently looking for a new AC, there’s one stat that may be on the top of your mind, and that’s the air conditioner’s energy efficiency rating (SEER). Efficiency is an important word in home appliances, and people are always hunting for the best in efficiency so they can avoid higher utility bills. It’s a great idea, but it can sometimes lead consumers to focus on efficiency over everything else—and that can end up going wrong, as we’ll explain.

You may need Tampa, FL, AC repair services to deal with the issues that mold can cause for your AC. We’re here with the basic facts of the situation so you’ll know when to call us—and why!

When you start thinking about preparing your home for the approaching summer weather, the air conditioning system needs to receive special attention. It’s difficult to manage being indoors during the summer weather if a house isn’t equipped with a powerful central air conditioning system—and a reliable system as well. Power and reliability are what you most want from your AC during the summer season, with energy efficiency coming close behind.

When you take an assessment of the AC, you may decide you need an air conditioning replacement in Palm Harbor, FL. Or maybe to schedule repair service for something wrong you noticed before. Let’s go a bit deeper into how you can analyze your air conditioning needs.
