This is one of the most common questions we get from homeowners in our area, and understandably so. After all, we use our air conditioners a lot longer and a lot more consistently than people in other parts of the country. Therefore, it makes sense that we want to save money while doing so!
Of course, one way to improve the efficiency of your air conditioning in Williston, FL is to update (and upgrade) your air conditioner if it’s aging—that is, if it’s 10-15 years old. A while back, we talked about the benefits of variable speed cooling, which is an AC technology that’s relatively new and can greatly improve the overall efficiency of your cooling efforts. This isn’t the only way to boost efficiency, though! Read on for more tips.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 06/27/18 Raymond Walsh North Central Florida Air Conditioning 386-454-4767 Ray.Walsh@NCFAC.com
HVAC Industry rallies around one of their own Manufacturers, distributors and dealers all pitch in to bring air conditioning to a technician that fell ill last Thanksgiving.
Gainesville, Florida: Dan Johnson had serviced homeowners’ air conditioners for the last 20 years. He had a passion to serve people, and he was a hero to the residents he helped. All that ended last Thanksgiving. Early Friday morning, Ashley Smith, a dispatcher for North Central Florida Air Conditioning received a phone call from Mr. Johnson. It was very brief. Before she could understand what he was saying, the line disconnected. She tried to call him back, but he did not answer so she called the owner for guidance. Mr. Walsh reached out to Dan, and immediately recognized he was in distress. Mr. Walsh notified the authorities, and they rushed him to Shands.
Dan lived alone and off the grid. He took pleasure in the simple things. Now he was clinging for life in ICU, and nothing about his life would ever be simple again. After more than 6 months in the hospital, countless procedures, and endless prayers, Mr. Johnson is finally able to come home. Unfortunately, the simple life he had always lived can no longer sustain him in his current medical condition. A man that had helped so many for so long now needed help. On Wednesday, he called North Central Florida Air Conditioning and asked how much it would be to install air conditioning in his home? “When I got the call from Dan, I was flooded with emotions” said Raymond Walsh the owner of North Central Florida Air Conditioning. “I visited with him in the hospital several times, and had a mini Christmas party for him in the ICU. I celebrated in early February when he was discharge. I never knew the challenges he faced until he called looking for an air conditioning.”
After receiving the call, Mr. Walsh started making calls of his own and was amazed to hear the stories on how Dan had affected so many professionals in our industry. “I have much respect for Dan, he may not remember how much of an influence he was for me 18 years ago when I first started in this business but he taught me about duct work and installing. He was always patient and kind and I have nothing but good memories of our time working together all those years ago” explained Janise Porter Branch Manager of Goodman Distribution. Call after call, story after story, and donation after donation started rolling in. In less than 24 hours, the local HVAC community came together to get everything needed to install a brand new air conditioner and ductwork for FREE come this Friday the 29th of June!

When you live in the Gainesville area, having a fully functional and efficient air conditioner is an absolute necessity. This means making sure you have that system installed by professionals to ensure it’s properly matched to your home. It also means investing in routine system maintenance each year (or twice a year, if you have a heat pump).
Perhaps most importantly, it means getting repairs done promptly when needed. But, how do you know you’re selecting the right professional for your AC repair in Gainesville, FL? What if you have a general handyman tell you something is wrong with your system, but you haven’t seen any symptoms of such problem? Could you be wasting your time and money?

When you live in our area, you understand how important it is to have a fully functional and reliable air conditioner all summer long. You probably do all that you can to make sure this is the case—scheduling air conditioning maintenance in the spring, keeping up on repairs, changing your air filter every 1-3 months. But, did you ever think about your ductwork?
Duct breaches, whether it be from shoddy installation or outside forces damaging the ductwork, account for a significant amount of air loss. This means that the conditioned air you are paying for may be leaking into areas such as your unoccupied attic or crawlspace where your ducts are located. How can you determine if this is impacting your home, though? By contacting our team for professional Gainesville, FL duct testing and sealing as well as blower door testing, that’s how!

Florida residents are definitely no strangers to the heat and humidity that plagues our state every summer and beyond. When the humidity levels rise, they not only impact how comfortable—or uncomfortable—we feel, but they make it harder for our air conditioners to do their job, too. AC systems are set up for temperature control, and not to improve your indoor air quality.
For better air quality, in this case, you need a whole-house dehumidifier. A whole-house dehumidifier solves problems that your air conditioner can’t, and also helps that system do its job. But how does all this work, and why is it so important? Keep reading to learn more.

Nobody needs to tell you that our summers can be pretty miserable. If it’s not the heat you have to contend with, it’s the humidity, which makes it feel even hotter than it is. We live in one of those places where coming home at the end of the day is a relief, because we can finally cool off! Well, that is, if you have a functioning air conditioner.
The best way to ensure you’ll keep cool this summer is to schedule Gainesville, FL air conditioning maintenance. This allows our expert HVAC technicians to fully inspect your cooling system for any signs of problems. We’ll also thoroughly clean the system, make any necessary adjustments, and alert you to repair needs so you can get those on your schedule right away.
Scheduling this service once a year (or, twice a year if you have a heat pump system) is vital to helping you keep cool this summer, but not the only method of doing so.

You wouldn’t skip maintenance for your car, right? After all, if you did then you could all of the sudden find yourself stranded somewhere due to a breakdown. Well then, with temperatures already in the 80’s during the day and your air conditioner probably already being used on a daily basis, why would you skip a Gainesville, FL AC maintenance appointment?
Doing so could leave you stranded in another way—stranded in your home without reliable cooling. This would obviously be uncomfortable, and in our area of the world it can also be unhealthy. There’s this idea among many homeowners that maintenance is some sort of “luxury” service that only a select few can afford. But maintenance is not only affordable, it will actually save you money over your system’s lifespan, since you’ll be less likely to run into surprise repair issues or premature system replacement.
