Florida summers mean you count on your air conditioning system to keep you cool and comfortable. This is something that makes the hot weather bearable — even if your electric bill makes you cringe. But, your bill doesn’t have to keep climbing along with the temperature outside. You can keep your home cool and your utilities under control with an energy efficient, or high SEER rating, unit.
Summer is right around the corner, and it won’t be long before we see temperatures in or approaching three digits in the Jacksonville, FL area. While your air conditioning system may be handling the current temperatures without issue, now is the time to ensure your unit is able to keep up with the stress that hot weather brings.
The air quality inside your home might seem like it’s out of your control. However, there are several quick, inexpensive, and nearly effortless ways you can improve your indoor air quality.
Ultraviolet (UV) lights are quickly becoming the standard best practice when it comes to a home’s HVAC system. Nowhere is this more crucial than in hot and humid Florida. The combination of high humidity and extreme heat provide the perfect environment for bacteria, mold, and other irritants to grow and flourish.
Poor air quality can contribute to significant health issues inside your own home. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), there’s scientific evidence that the air inside homes can be more polluted than that outside. In fact, the concentration of some pollutants could be as much as five times greater inside a home than those that are found outdoors.
There’s no better time than now to determine if your HVAC system can handle the high’s and low’s. At A/C Designs, we’ve been working on air conditioning systems in Jacksonville and the surrounding areas for more than a decade. While not all system issues are created equal, there are a few kinds of problems that are more prevalent than others.
Did you know that you could be inadvertently making air conditioning mistakes that are increasing your energy output and, in turn, your utility expenses? Here are four pitfalls to watch out for:
Florida weather — contrary to what the rest of the country believes — is not always sunshine and warm breezes. In spite of our region’s reputation for hot weather year round, the reality is that Florida weather is very inconsistent. This inconsistency can cost you a lot of money as you adjust your thermostat to stay comfortable indoors.
We are pleased to announce that A/C Designs has been named as the Official Heating & Air Conditioning Partner of the First Coast News Storm Experts. Together, our teams of weather and HVAC experts are proud to provide residents of Northeast Florida with trusted news and information that affects their daily lives.
