Your home’s heating and cooling system experiences a lot of wear and tear throughout the year, especial during the hot summer months. As a result of the system constantly running, the outdoor unit will likely see a build-up of pollen, dirt, dust, and debris that can lead to lower performance or long-term damage if it isn’t properly cleaned and maintained.
It might be a familiar sight to see your vehicle’s A/C dripping some water after it’s been parked for a few minutes. While this is a common occurrence that shouldn’t raise any red flags, the same can’t be said about your home’s air vents. If you notice water dripping from your A/C vents, the reasons range from fairly simple to complex. Below are four reasons why your vents may be dripping water:
Preparing for a hurricane can be a stressful time, but it’s important to stay safe and have an action plan in the event of a major storm. Earlier this week, Owner of A/C Designs, Ed Tennant, visited the set of First Coast Living to share insights on how to prepare your air conditioning unit before, during, and after a hurricane.
As one of the most important systems in your household, you rely on your A/C to keep you and your family comfortable, regardless of the weather conditions outdoors. During the hot summer months an increase in energy bills is to be expected, but if the cost is skyrocketing and you ask yourself, “how can this be possible?” it may be time to turn to an expert to see if your air conditioner or cooling habits are to blame.
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.
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.
While the winter months in Jacksonville, Florida are generally mild, there are typically a handful of days or weeks where temperatures are near freezing and homeowners turn to their heating systems for comfort. To ensure your system is in peak condition, regardless if you are using air conditioning or heating, it’s important to perform regular maintenance.
