Help! I See Water Leaking from My AC

Monday, July 31st, 2017 by Tom Vatter

help-water-from-acWhen you see water present in your home with no known source, it’s natural that you’d want to call a plumber for repairs. However, the problem might actually be your air conditioner, not your plumbing system. Cooling systems can leak water, but not from any part of the plumbing that snakes its way through your home—rather, it’s from condensation that has built up within your AC system and might, if drainage isn’t property set up, find a way to spill over and into your home.

Depending on where with your home that the indoor component of your AC is located, a leak of this kind can be devastating. So what should you do if you do notice an air conditioner leak?

Beware These Ductless System Repair Needs

Monday, July 17th, 2017 by Tom Vatter

beware-these-ductless-system-repair-needsDuctless mini split systems have become increasingly popular in homes throughout the country in recent years, and rightfully so. Instead of operating through a network of ductwork conned to an indoor air handler and evaporator unit, ductless systems use a small outdoor unit connected by refrigerant and conduit lines to multiple small wall-mounted air handlers throughout the home.

We’ve touted the benefits of such a system in previous posts—they are high efficiency, they typically take up a lot less space than central units, they eliminate the indoor air quality problems that ducted systems present—but just like any other climate control system, they may run into a problem at some time or another. The good news is that when you do need ductless air conditioning repairs in Navarre Beach, FL, we are here to help. In the meantime, we’d like to let you know what you can expect by way of ductless system repairs that may differ from more conventional HVAC systems.   (more…)

new-air-conditioner-costSummer is officially here—although that probably sounds a bit silly coming from us, since our summers are pretty much year-round! Nevertheless, now is the time that it’s most important to have a fully functional and efficiently working air conditioning system in place. So, if you’ve found that yours isn’t quite up to the task of facing another set of hot months, you could be considering a replacement.

Given that we tend to spend a great deal of money on our cooling systems from month-to-month (in fact, it’s estimated that this accounts for 50% of all your energy costs!) it makes sense that you may be concerned about the cost of a new air conditioner. This is, naturally, a question we get a lot—how much will a new Gulf Breeze, FL air conditioner installation cost? We wish we had a black-and-white answer for you, but the truth is—it depends. (more…)
