How to Spot a Blower Motor Problem

October 11th, 2021

No, we’re not talking about leaf blowers or a box fan, we’re talking about your air conditioner! Sometimes there can be a problem in your AC unit that has nothing to do with the refrigerant or the compressor, and instead the problem persists in your system’s blower motor. The blower is the component responsible for—as the name implies—blowing the cool air into your duct system and throughout your home. Without a blower, your AC would just cool off the air inside of it and it would never reach the rest of your home’s rooms.

How do you know if you’ve got a blower motor problem that requires AC repair in Gainesville, FL? Well, there are a few telltale signs that can point you in the right direction.

Keep reading, we’ll get into all the details about blower motor problems and why you need to call us if you suspect this problem is occurring in your own home.

AC Tips: Bigger Isn’t Always Better

September 27th, 2021

When you close your eyes and picture a bigger house with a bigger kitchen, a larger garage, and a huge finished basement, it probably feels good. As Americans, we like things that are bigger.

Having a larger home and larger appliances can be a huge improvement in your quality of life.

However, the appliances and systems of your home need to match it. If you’ve got a large home but your air conditioner is set up for a home that’s twice the size, you’re going to run into some pretty serious problems. In this case, bigger is absolutely not better, and we’d like to talk about why.

Everything You Need to Know About Mold

August 2nd, 2021

When you combine humidity, heat, and air conditioning, what do you get? The perfect environment for mold growth. Normally, when an air conditioner is functioning as it should be, there isn’t really any space for mold. All the moisture gets drained out of the condensate line, and your system can go on working. However, when there’s a clog in the condensate drain or pan, or if there’s another problem causing excess humidity to exist in your home or AC system, then you could see the influx of mold.

Don’t worry, we can help! Our team specializes in mold removal in Gainesville, FL.
