Is Heater Maintenance Worth It?

Monday, January 11th, 2021

Let’s face it. “Florida” and “cold” are rarely words we see used in the same sentence. It’s true, our winters are relatively mild when you compare them to what the rest of the country experiences. Still though, when our temperatures drop, the drastic difference is enough to make us feel chilly. While 60°F is “nice” to those who live in the Midwest, it’s downright arctic to us!

Alright, maybe that’s a little dramatic. But the point is, we need fully functional and efficiently operating heating systems in our homes to stay comfortable in the wintertime. But how can you ensure that yours is fully functional and is operating as well as it can? Well, with maintenance!

So, yes, heater maintenance is worth it. But don’t just take our word for it and stop reading here! Continue on as we uncover why you should call for heater maintenance today if you haven’t done so in a year or longer.

Tips for Choosing the Right AC Installer

Monday, June 17th, 2019

air-conditioning-technician-speaking-to-homeowner-while-workingIf you’ve lived in the area for even a year, chances are that you—hopefully—have had maintenance done on your air conditioner at least at one point. Perhaps a professional performed it, and your air conditioner showed signs of improvement in operation afterward.

But when if your air conditioner is old? That is, about 10–15 years old? Even a well-maintained air conditioner is designed to last just about that long. Is it time for yours to be replaced? You can go with the company you hired for maintenance, but that doesn’t always mean they’re going to be the best folks for the job, or the best services for your specific home and needs. The right AC installer will help you make an educated decision on what type of system you should invest in (you don’t need to stick with the one you’ve always had!), how to properly size the system, and more.

So, other than this, what should you know about your AC installer?

It’s Never Okay to See Water Leaking from Your AC!

Monday, July 2nd, 2018

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. Instead, it’s due to condensation that has built up within the system and may, if drainage isn’t properly set up, find a way to spill over and into your home.

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.
