Do Ductless AC Systems Have Unique Repair Needs?Monday, June 18th, 2018
When it comes to choosing a new Pensacola Beach, FL air conditioning system for your home, there are a variety of options to choose from. 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.
One of these options is the ductless system.
Rather than operating through a system of ductwork, connected to a single indoor air handler and evaporator unit, a ductless system breaks up the indoor unit and the blower fans to distribute conditioned air throughout your home in the form of air handlers, mounted high up on the wall of each room its intended for.
Is It Time to Replace Your Geothermal Cooling System?Monday, May 2nd, 2016
Geothermal systems are known as one of the most efficient ways to cool and heat homes. They are also known to last a very long time. Traditional air-source heat pumps are not able to provide much heating during the winter on their own. However, geothermal heat pumps are ground-source. This means that they use the steady temperature of the earth—which varies only a few degrees—to both heat your home in the winter and cool it in the summer.
Despite their durability and versatility, however, geothermal systems are just like any other type of HVAC system in that they will not last forever. The good news is that in most cases, you will only need to replace the heat pump itself, and not the underground coils. So don’t panic if you do find yourself needing a system replacement. It is a good idea, however, to be aware of the signs that it may be time for a replacement.

The winters in northern Florida are short and mild, and now that it’s late February we can already start to look toward the time when the air conditioners in our houses will turn on and work steadily. However, there are still cool and rainy days ahead, with the temperature sometimes dropping into the 50s. Our heating systems aren’t ready to go into hibernation quite yet, and so it’s smart to make sure that they aren’t suffering from any major or minor repair issues. You don’t want to be caught by surprise when you try to turn your heater on at the end of the year and find that it doesn’t work just when you need it again.
