We know you want to get the most work from your home’s air conditioning in Tampa, FL, and that means getting the longest service life from it. But you don’t want to continue to run an air conditioner into the ground—keeping a system running year after year until it finally breaks down isn’t wise. For one thing, it means having to schedule an emergency replacement that can leave you trapped in the heat until the new system is in place. You want to have a new air conditioning system installed on your schedule, not the air conditioner’s. For another, an AC that is past its prime will waste large amounts of power, sometimes costing 25% more to run than it once did, and rack up repair bills.
So it’s best to have an AC replaced when it’s on the cusp of starting to decline, and 15 years is often a good point to have this done.

Sizing an air conditioner means finding how powerful an AC is necessary to provide the specific amount of comfort for an interior space. If you are looking for a new central air conditioner for your house, you need to have the system sized so it provides your household with the comfort level it needs during even the hottest weather. Sizing is about more than ensuring a new AC system is powerful enough; it also ensures the system isn’t too powerful. A properly sized air conditioner falls between the extremes of oversized and undersized.
How is sizing done, and is it something you can handle on your own before?

Heat pumps are common installations in Tampa Bay because they are a wonderful fit for our climate. Heat pumps are both heating and cooling systems, which is good for almost any part of the country, but there are features that make them particularly suited to Florida. One of them is their heating ability. We don’t rely as much on heating systems as much as air conditioning systems in the warm climate of Florida, and heat pumps are able to provide electric heating that doesn’t drain enormous amounts of energy (a problem with electric furnaces). Heat pumps can have trouble with extreme cold weather, but we don’t have that issue, so as heating systems, heat pumps are exactly right for us.
But … what about air conditioning? What about cooling? Is a heat pump at the same level of cooling as a standard air conditioner? This is important to know because hot weather is what we deal with the most in Florida.

A common sound of a hot summer day is the occasional drip of
water coming from a running air conditioning system. This sound is normal. As
normal as the whirr of the fan blades and the hum of the compressor turning on
and off. Your air conditioner doesn’t use water to cool the crisp and relaxing
air sent around your house, but water is a byproduct of how the AC does its

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.

Humidity, right? I mean, what else can you say? It’s awful during the Florida summers, and this is a summer when we’re spending more time in our homes than usual. An air conditioning system can only do so much against the way humidity increases how hot we feel inside our homes, and running the AC as much as possible translates to even steeper bills over the season.
There’s help, however. You can lower the humidity in your home in a number of ways, from simple steps to indoor air quality installations in Dunedin, FL.
