  • Q:Should I repair my HVAC equipment or replace it?

    A:A common question when servicing an older A/C unit is whether to repair or replace your current A/C system. Based on the magnitude of the repair and the age of the equipment you may decide to invest in newer equipment. The typical lifespan of an A/C unit in Florida can range from 8-12 years on average with our high heat and humidity. Our experienced technicians can evaluate your system, take into consideration potential future repairs, and your plans with the home to find the correct decision for you as a property owner.

  • Q:What is a SEER rating?

    A:SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating and is a standard of efficiency set by AHRI to determine the efficiency of HVAC equipment. Typically, the higher the SEER, the more energy efficient the equipment, which means lower electrical costs to operate.

  • Q:What is indoor air quality?

    A:Indoor air quality is a measure of the quality of air in an enclosed structure. With airborne bacteria, dust, odors, and allergens that can build up inside HVAC systems and ductwork; indoor air can often be worse to breathe than the air we find outside. The industry has developed products and services to help remedy these issues by purifying the air in the home through filtration, cleaning, and sanitization.

  • Q:How often should I maintain my equipment?

    A:Air conditioning equipment in Florida should be maintained 1-2 times a year by a qualified technician to review and analyze the system for potential problems as well as maintaining cleanliness and efficiency.
