Understanding the Harm of Low Refrigerant in Your A/C System.
The life force of your air conditioner is its compressor, which gets cooled down and lubricated by refrigerant. When refrigerant levels are low, the unit could end up overheating and prematurely failing your compressor, causing the need to replace the compressor or even the entire condensing unit. A very inconvenient and expensive ordeal.

What’s Cool About Winter
Your air conditioner can undergo much strain in the summer months. It’s not uncommon for people to run their units all day long, everyday, at a setting that produces a lot of wear and tear.
Springtime is here and now is the time to ensure your air conditioning system is ready for the hot summer months ahead. The Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) released a reminder on March 13th to all homeowners that this is the ideal time to prepare cooling equipment before the heat is on.
The Most Frequent Air Conditioner Breakdowns and Their Causes
South Floridians know the importance of a well-running air conditioner better than most. Our average high temperatures can be unbearable--and in many cases, unhealthy--without the relief a cool A/C provides. A complete air conditioning system is a complex interworking of electronic components, gasses, fans, motors and more. With so many parts working together, it is clear to see how many things could go wrong and cause an A/C to break down.
The Importance of Routine Maintenance on Your Heat Pump
Most South Florida homes and businesses use air conditioners for cooling due to the average high temperatures, but some choose to install a heat pump in certain situations. Heat pumps are excellent choices for moderate climates. They can both heat and cool your home, not by burning fuel, but by transferring heat from one location to another. Sometimes referred to as hybrid heat dual fuel split systems, heat pump usage results in considerable savings when heating is used, and comfortable cooling in temperate climates.

Molds, while essential to the cleanup of the planet, can pose serious health risks, especially here in South Florida, where warm temperatures provide a comfortable home in which mold can thrive.
