AC Broken? What To Look For In An Air Conditioner Repair Company

When you need your air conditioner repaired, it is tempting to hire the first company you find online or in the telephone directory. Unfortunately, that can create more problems than it solves if the company is not reputable. It is important that the company is insured and that its employees are bonded. This protects you in the event of poor workmanship or if someone is injured on your property. The company must also provide workers' compensation insurance to all of its service technicians.

A professional air conditioning company should have 24-hour availability in case of an emergency. HVAC systems break down just as much on weekends, in the middle of the night and on holidays as they do during regular business hours. While you may pay an extra fee for emergency service, you shouldn't feel like the company is taking of advantage of your urgent situation.

Make Sure Someone Completes a Visual Inspection

North Port Residents Be Sure To Check Your AC Air Filters

With the annual springtime pollen apocalypse underway in North Port, residents should keep a close eye on the air filters in their central ac systems.

North Port Florida Pollen
Airborne tree pollen collecting
at a driveway at North Port

Newcomers to North Port are often shocked at the tremendous amounts of pollen that is produced every year by all of the lovely pine trees. At times a gust of wind will blow through the trees creating a yellow fog that will coat everything in a thin (or not so thin) film.

While this is a boon for area car washes, those with allergies are less than thrilled.

Of course with so much pollen in the air it does not all stay in the great outdoors, and it is up to the filter in your air handler to remove the pollen from the air in your home.

For some, the vast amounts of pollen turning their cars yellow is more than just a nuisance, but also affects their respiratory health and having an effective air filter indoors is the best defense.

Warmer Winter Weather In Venice Means Running The AC Again - But Is Your Air Handler In Top Shape

Weather in the Sarasota area can be unpredictable during the winter, but one thing we can always count on are some wild temperature swings. With a few cold fronts under our belt already this year we are in for some downright balmy temps.

That means turning the air conditioning back on in February. But for central ac systems if your air handler has not be well maintained that can mean much higher electric bills as well.

When most people think about an air conditioner they picture the noisy grey box out side that blows the heat collected from inside the home back out side. But equally important is the air handler located inside the home. Ofter tucked away in some inconspicuous corner or even hanging from the ceiling in some cases, it's the air handler that absorbs the heat from inside your home and transports it through the coolant to the out side.

Normal this is a highly efficient process, especially if the next generation of coolants like Puron from Bryant is being used. However no matter what kind of coolant or even what brand or age of your air conditioner is, if the air handler is dirty and clogged with dust,... full post

When Does A Heat Pump Need The Emergency Heat Feature?

You can find an emergency heat switch on almost all electric heat pumps. Sometimes, it will be abbreviated as “Em.Ht.” or “Aux.Ht.”. This feature is not found on gas furnaces. Using the emergency switch is easy; it simply turns off your heat pump. This isn’t something you just want to do anytime for no reason at all unless you enjoy seeing your electric bill double.

Your heat pump is the best way to heat your home. All heat pumps have extra heating coils to help the pump during extremely cold temperatures. These extra coils are similar to what you would find in a portable space heater or like the coils you see in old toasters.

Some people will give you the wrong advice by telling you to use your emergency heat setting to give your regular heat pump a break during extremely cold temperatures. This is not true. When you turn on the emergency heat setting, you turn off your heat pump. Consequently, your more costly backup coils are going to heat your home and cost you about three... full post

How Do Heat Pumps Pull Heat From Cold Air?

A heat pump is a device that transfers heat from a colder area to a hotter area by use of mechanical energy. Heat pumps use relatively little energy to transfer heat from one place to another. They work by pulling heat out of the ground or the air in order to warm a building, and in the summer this function can be reversed in order to cool the same building. The idea of heat being pumped for the purpose of an air conditioner may seem hard to grasp at first. The same is true in reverse, with cold air being used for heating purposes.

New Bryant Heat Pumps From Mahle Cool Air

Heat pumps are in cooling mode during the summer, using refrigerant to absorb heat from inside the building and releasing it to the air outside. During the winter, however, they operate more like an air conditioner in reverse. The refrigerant absorbs heat from outside and uses it to warm the building. Outside air contains a... full post
