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!

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

When you combine humidity, heat, and air conditioning, what do you get? The perfect environment for mold growth.

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.
