How to Spot a Blower Motor Problem

Monday, 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.

Everything You Need to Know About Mold

Monday, 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. Not only will we be able to fix your air conditioner and provide targeted repairs that get the job done, but we’ll also be able to remove any mold and detect where any other mold might be growing.

What’s in Your Air Ducts?

Monday, March 29th, 2021

Air ducts are essential to the functionality of our air conditioners and heating systems. Without them, we either have to rely on specific heating and cooling systems, like ductless mini splits, or figure out some other way to have treated air distributed throughout our homes. The longer your air ducts go without being cleaned, the more likely it is that your indoor air is suffering from a wide variety of contaminants. Let us explain.

Dust isn’t the only thing you should worry about existing in your air ducts. Bacteria, viruses, mold spores, and other contaminants can live and breed inside your air duct system. Also, without proper air duct cleaning in Gainesville, FL, your HVAC system could see a serious decrease in efficiency with all of these contaminants gunking up the system.

We’re going to talk today specifically about what’s in your air ducts and how our cleaning services get rid of them.
