Let’s face it: living in South Florida can get pretty hot and humid. For Floridians, having a properly functioning HVAC unit is essential.

With Florida’s most extreme season upon us, most residents will face a reminder of the state’s cardinal rule: Air Conditioning is a necessity, not a luxury. Is your AC unit ready to beat the heat?

Spring is time to clear out old clutter and bring in a new and improved, cleaner you. Your AC unit is no different. Cleaning your AC unit can help extend its life and generate cleaner, cooler air in your home. Regularly cleaning out debris and changing your air filter allows your unit run more efficiently and cut back on energy consumption by 15%.
Here’s how to safely deactivate and clean your outdoor AC unit for optimal performance all season long.
It can be tricky when it comes to choosing the right air filter for your HVAC system.

If you find your air conditioning unit isn’t cooling enough, there are a few things you should check before calling a professional. Clean your outdoor HVAC unit, check ductwork for leaks, change your air filter, and other minor fixes. Only if those fail should you go to the next step and hire a professional.
