Temperatures are still scorchingly hot, but they won’t be for very long. We’ve got some cooler, more mild temperatures on their way this winter, which means you’ll want your air conditioner to be maintained and in good shape for next summer.
This can be achieved with routine maintenance which we recommend each and every one on of our customers purchases. But we don’t expect you to just purchase maintenance with a recommendation from the team that provides it! That’s why we’ll go into detail today as to why maintenance is such an effective service and why now is the best time for it.
This might sound like a sales pitch, but it’s absolutely not one. The benefits of AC maintenance in Alachua are supported by cold hard facts, and we’d rather treat this like a PSA than the selling of a service to our customers.

This must be one of the most perplexing problems to have happen on an extremely hot day. We’ve had scorching hot temperatures this summer, and they seem to be sticking around. But your air conditioner might still be growing ice on the coils even in that heat. How the heck does that work?
Well, AC repair in Newberry, FL is a bit complicated, so we can’t necessarily answer this question in one quick sentence. In a nutshell: ice grows on an air conditioner due to a number of different reasons, but none of them are good and they’re all a result of poor airflow or lack of refrigerant. You see, that ice that’s forming on the side of your air conditioner is not being felt by you or your family, and it’s basically just a waste of cool temperatures that would otherwise be in your home.
So, let’s talk in detail about this peculiar problem. Then, we hope our newly informed customers will be quick to schedule a repair appointment with one of our technicians to have the issue diagnosed properly.

Air conditioners can run into trouble, sometimes once in a while, and sometimes frequently. There’s really no guarantee on how long your system will last before the next issue. If you’ve got a protective warranty, then you likely don’t have to worry about it as long as you’re doing all the required tasks to ensure the warranty stays valid. But for many AC owners, they don’t have a warranty, and they’ll likely need to pay for these repairs on their own.
So, we get to the essential question of this blog post. How often should your air conditioner run into issues? Is it once a year? Once every few years? Multiple times per year? And if your AC is reaching a period where it needs air conditioning repair in Gainesville, FL all the time, is it worth investing in a replacement?
The answer is yes, but keep reading to learn why.

Getting your air conditioner “maintained” might sound like a kind of luxury service—but it’s not. Many people simply think that having a family friend look at the system, or just doing a quick inspection of the outside cabinet is enough, but these complex systems require more.
Sure, your air conditioner might continue to function well if you skip a year of maintenance, but it will likely get worn down and will have trouble lasting its full lifespan. Then, you’ll be confused when you reach year seven of owning the system and it’s already old, broken, and requiring replacement. That’s never a good feeling.
Air conditioning maintenance in Alachua, FL is designed to keep your system running effectively and efficiently. That 10–15 year lifespan we dream of having from our AC systems is only really achievable with routine maintenance every year.

When investing in air conditioning services, it can be easy to point out whether you “need” a service or not. Do you need AC repairs or not? Do you need a new AC installation, or are you just fine? These are easy questions to answer, and you don’t need to get into the weeds of how helpful they’ll be if you don’t need them.
AC maintenance in Gainesville, FL on the other hand, is not that kind of topic to cover. Just like spring cleaning or getting your taxes done early, AC maintenance isn’t necessarily “needed” in that kind of way. But saying that it’s not important is deceptive.
Maintenance is a service that will go a long way towards easing your energy bills, keeping your home comfortable, reducing repairs, and it will even be a resource to you and your family if you take advantage of it. Think of maintenance as a positive force for the future, instead of something needed for today.

Most modern-day furnaces have a bunch of different safety mechanisms to ensure that they run properly. For instance, the heat exchanger keeps the system from accidentally allowing carbon monoxide and other fumes to enter the breathable space of your home. Other components, like the electrical ignition, make sure that the system is in charge of whether or not a flame gets lit, so it doesn’t accidentally run for longer than it needs to.
But here’s a question: how does your furnace know if the gas inside of it is being burned? After all, can’t it accidentally leak gas through a burner system that’s not functioning correctly? And, as we all know, gas is expensive. Well, there’s a component that helps regulate this process and keeps your home from encountering a dangerous gas leak. It’s the flame sensor, and this blog post will be dedicated to describing what this component does, and why you might need it fixed with furnace repair in Lake City, FL!

All good things must come to an end, and that includes the lifespan of your furnace. It’s reliable now, but that only lasts for so long.
How do you know if it still has some miles left in it, or if your furnace has one foot out the door? There are a few ways to tell, but the most glaring method is using the 50% rule.
Let’s break it down and hopefully, you’ll simply need furnace repair in Lake City, FL and not a full replacement.

We’re going to be honest, we love giving our customers tips on how to better run their heat pump systems. Sometimes, the solution isn’t paying money for a service or calling the right team for a job. Life can be great when the solution comes from just talking about a problem and sharing knowledge, person to person.
Well, that’s what we aim on doing now. Our big tip of the day is this:
Heat pumps require maintenance twice a year instead of just once.
If that tip has confused you or brought up some questions, then that’s what the rest of this blog is here to answer! Heat pumps are different from your classic gas furnace or central air conditioner. They work throughout the entire year, so they’re bound to need twice as much heating maintenance in Gainesville, FL. But is that all there is to learn? Not quite.
