With homeowners being much more cognizant these days about the health of their households, it makes sense that you may be considering the addition of an air purifier in your home. But not all air purifiers are created equal! They all have their specific purpose, and some will meet your home’s specific needs better than others.
So to answer the question of “is a UV air purifer installation worth it?” Probably!
The thing is, the quality of your air indoors is actually worse than that of outdoors, without the right indoor air quality products and services in place. Read on to learn more!

The short answer to this is, “because they work!” Of course, we’ll elaborate on this a bit further below. After all, you should know just why it’s so important to have a source of air purification that will leave you more comfortable and healthier to boot.
The fact is, your indoor air quality can actually be worse than the quality of air outdoors, without the right indoor air quality products and services in place. This is true no matter the season and no matter the setup of your home. There are a number of factors that impact this, from allergens like pet dander and dust to pollutants like household cleaning products and mold growth.

Air conditioners can’t last forever. It would be nice, but technology simply hasn’t allowed for that yet. If your system is well cared for, you can expect to get about 10-15 years of efficient use out of it–maybe more if you’re really fortunate!
But living in any city within Florida means your air conditioner goes through a lot of work and accumulates a lot of wear and tear throughout the years. So, if you want any hope of your air conditioner even reaching its intended lifespan, it needs to be professionally maintained, and you need to stay on top of your AC repair needs.
But how do you know you have AC repair needs? Are there any telltale signs? Yup, there sure are! Read on as we uncover 4 of the most common.

You’ve probably heard lots of tips and tricks throughout the
years about how to boost air conditioner efficiency and performance. Some tips
are very worth listening to, such as investing in routine professional
maintenance and changing your air filter every few months. But other advice is,
well, not the greatest to take in.
For example, have you ever had a handyman tell you that your
cooling system’s refrigerant has to be refilled (what we in the industry call recharged) on a routine basis? There are
one of two reasons they would be telling you this. They either actually believe
this is true, which means they are inexperienced and untrained, or they’re
trying to get money from you that you shouldn’t be paying. It’s a very common
AC myth that refrigerant is something that needs to be refilled—read on to
learn why this is not the case!

If there is any single air conditioning service we think is
vital for your cooling system, it’s maintenance. Homeowners often still see
this as a frivolous or “luxury” service but that’s just not the case. The fact
of the matter is, if you want your air conditioner to last as long as it is
meant to—an average of 10-15 years—and work as effectively as it is meant to
throughout its lifespan, you have to
have it tuned-up by a trained professional.
This is particularly true when you consider our climate. If
you have a traditional central air conditioner, then annual maintenance is
essential. If you have a year-round heat pump or ductless system, then this
should be increased to every 6 months.
But, is there anything else you can do to ensure the
efficiency of your air conditioner?
There sure is! Read on to learn more.

While other parts of the country are just now starting to
use their air conditioners for the season. Those of us in the Navarre area use
ours on nearly a daily basis. This said, our cooling systems go through a lot every year, accumulating wear and
tear at a rapid rate, and possibly requiring more repairs because of this.
To avoid the biggest and most sudden of repair needs, we
encourage you to schedule maintenance at least once a year for your air
conditioning system. During your tune-up, our professionals comprehensively
inspect, clean, and adjust the components of your air conditioner to ensure its
optimal performance. With or without this tune-up, however, if your AC is
making sounds you don’t recognize, it’s time to call in a professional. What
sounds are we referring to? Read on!

The short answer to this is, “no.” But, we will elaborate in
Given how much we rely on our air conditioners here in Florida,
it makes sense that you want to ensure yours is working as effectively and
efficiently as possible.
If you believe the misconception that it’s okay to see ice developing on your air conditioner, however, then your AC isn’t operating as it should. We get it—air conditioners produce cold so it may only seem natural that components could freeze over. However, this is a sign of something going amiss within your cooling system and it requires immediate attention. We provide exceptional AC services, and in the meantime, you can keep reading below to discover why ice develops and what to do about it.

One of the most common questions we understandably get about
air conditioning systems is how homeowners can use them most efficiently, in

this as well.
We have good news! There are a number of actions you can take to lower your bills, including scheduling routine maintenance. Spending a little money now on tuning your air conditioner up each year can actually save you even more in the long run throughout the year. There are also various HVAC and indoor air quality products that can help, such as a dehumidifier that will allow the air to feel cooler so you can turn your thermostat up a couple of degrees and your AC won’t have to run as long.
