Monday, October 8th, 2018 by Tom Vatter

woman covering her ears, on white backgroundWhile other parts of the country are cooling off and homeowners are preparing their heaters for the long winter ahead, those of us here in Gulf Breeze are still using our air conditioners on a pretty regular basis. That being said, our AC systems go through a lot, accumulating wear and tear faster than AC systems in other parts of the country, and potentially requiring more repairs.

First off, to avoid the biggest and most sudden of repair needs, we urge you to schedule maintenance at least once a year for your air conditioner. During this service, our professionals will fully inspect, clean, and adjust your system to ensure its efficient performance. But with or without maintenance, if your cooling system is making noises you don’t recognize, it’s time to call in a pro. What noises should you pay particular attention to? (more…)

Monday, September 24th, 2018 by Tom Vatter

diagram-showing-geothermal-system-directionWhen it comes to choosing an air conditioner for your home, two things are for sure. You want it to work efficiently, and you want it to last as long as possible.

Well, yes, this is a way to be more efficient, save energy, and consequently save money. But, it’s not a good solution. The fact of the matter is, we need air conditioning in Shalimar, FL. Not only does an effective cooling system help improve comfort, but it keeps you and your family healthy—which is particularly important if you have elderly members of the family or very young.

Since we still have a decent amount of summer left (let’s face it, we may be going into the New Year with temps still in the 80’s), it’s time to look at how instead of limiting use of our air conditioners, we can use it just as much, but more efficiently so. (more…)

water-droplets-graphicWhen the average person discovers water somewhere on their property where it shouldn’t be, their natural inclination may be to call a plumber to investigate a leak. However, you may actually need to call for Destin air conditioning repair, instead. Air conditioning systems can, in fact, leak water, but it’s not coming from your plumbing system.

Depending on where your cooling system’s indoor unit is located, the results of a leak can be detrimental. So, what should you do if your AC system does spring a leak? Read on to find out. (more…)

To ensure that it works as efficiently and effectively as it should for the years to come, you want to make sure you work with a pro to find the best option for your specific needs and budget.
