Improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) with a Whole-House Ventilation System
Once upon a time, people relied on natural ventilation to keep fresh air moving through their home. This means they opened windows and doors and relied on small cracks and “leaks” in the walls of their homes. Newer homes, however, especially in South Florida, are intentionally built with less air leaks to minimize heating and cooling costs and improve energy efficiency. Mechanical ventilation is a necessity to bring fresh air into the home and remove stale, toxic air.
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.
FPL Participating Independent Contractors can help you save money!
You may have been told that the benefits of a new, high-efficiency air conditioning system are well worth the higher purchase price when long-term savings are considered. Florida Power & Light Company is offering substantial savings on the up-front costs of A/C purchase and installation in the form of rebates when the work is performed by one of their own Participating Contractors.
Your air conditioner has broken down yet again, leaving you sweating in the heat of the summer! Eventually, you will be faced with the tough decision of whether to replace the unit or keep making repairs. A new A/C can cost between $2,000 and $9,000 depending on the size required and your location. Sure, the repairs will save you money right now, but might the seemingly hefty price of a new A/C save you money in the long run? If you are making frequent repairs, the answer is probably yes.
