As temperatures continue to cool in Jacksonville and homeowners kick on the heat for the first time since last winter, it’s common to notice a burning smell coming from the vents. This can be very unsettling, but luckily the smell (usually) only lasts for a short period of time.
One of the biggest questions people have when they purchase an HVAC unit or buy a home with an existing system is: “How long can I expect this unit to last?” The short answer is, it depends on a variety of different factors, including the amount of use, operational conditions, and maintenance schedule.
Many Jacksonville homeowners are incorporating the use of WiFi thermostats into their homes thanks to the many benefits they offer. These connected thermostats allow you to adjust the settings of your HVAC system from a distance, giving you greater control over your unit.
With WiFi thermostats, your home can quickly turn into a smart space. Here are just a few examples of why you should consider upgrading your thermostat to a wifi thermostat.
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.
Even though it may not feel like it, the hottest days of the year are almost behind us. Now is the time to give our A/C systems, which have been working overtime to keep us cool and comfortable, some much needed TLC. Here are a few pointers to keep your air conditioning and heating system running smoothly as we enter the fall and winter months.
Having a new air conditioning system installed at your home is a major expense, so it’s important that the process is done correctly and efficiently to get the most out of this investment. As you begin collecting estimates with local HVAC companies, there are several questions worth asking that can ultimately help you make the right decision and save you money.
WISH for OUR HEROES is a national non-profit organization that is dedicated to assisting the men and women of the United States active-duty military, and in some cases, Veterans. Military life is difficult—men and women selflessly serve our nation, while working for little pay, often putting their life on the line, and still dealing with home problems that place a large burden on their families.
If there was ever a region where a well-functioning air conditioning unit is vital to survival and comfort, it’s Jacksonville, Florida. While many people flock to the city because of its bountiful sunshine, having access to the cool relaxation of an A/C unit makes the worst of the heat more bearable. If your air conditioning unit is on and running — but not cooling your home or business — it could be due to one of these reasons.
