    Air Conditioning Tune-Up

    Looking to get your A/C unit ready for the long Florida summer ahead? Smart thinking. Just as we take in our cars for a tune-up before a long road trip, it just makes sense to get our air conditioning systems serviced by a licensed HVAC contractor before temperatures rise. After all, a central air conditioning system is one of the most significant investments we make in our home – and in Florida, A/C is a necessity nearly half the year.

    According to manufacturers, the best way to extend the life of your A/C unit and make sure it’s operating efficiently is to perform regular tune-ups on your system. To ensure its highest level of performance, HVAC tune-ups are recommended twice a year – once in the spring, in advance of high summer temperatures, and once in the fall before the heating season begins. In order to meet the requirements of your equipment’s limited warranty, your A/C manufacturer may require at least one service per year by a licensed HVAC contractor.

    Our Clearwater area A/C tune-up services help you:

    • Avoid costly repairs and protect your investment: Regular tune-ups can help prevent issues with your unit before they begin and can extend the life of your air conditioning system.
    • Save on energy costs: According to the U.S. Department of Energy, replacing a dirty or clogged filter alone can reduce your system’s energy consumption by 5% to 15%.
    • Avoid surprises and stay cool all summer:
      Save yourself the trouble of having your A/C break down during the hot, humid months – which happens to be the busiest time of year for HVAC companies – by preventing problems before they even begin.

    A/C Service Inspection Checklist:

    Our friendly, expert A/C technicians follow a series of steps to “peek under the hood”
    and prepare your air conditioning for the season ahead.

    Clear Drain Line

    Check Filters

    We’ll check the condition of your filters to ensure no damage is being caused to your system.

    Here are some frequently asked questions about getting an A/C Serviced
    How often should an A/C be serviced in Florida?

    Due to the extended hot season in Florida, many residents may run their A/C unit at least half the year or even year-round. For this reason, experts recommend having your HVAC system serviced twice per year, once in the spring before the summer temperatures arrive and once in the fall before the heating season.

    Is it worth cleaning air ducts?

    While many HVAC companies will try to sell duct cleaning services, we find that this service is rarely needed and only in extreme situations. Here are some signs you may need duct cleaning services:

    • You detect a bad odor or see debris or pet hair coming out of your vents.
    • Your home was recently renovated.
    • Mold is visible inside the ducts.
    • Animals have nested inside your duct system.
    How often should you change your A/C filter?

    Cleaning or replacing your system’s filters is one of the simplest ways to help your A/C operate optimally. A clogged or dirty air filter prevents proper air flow, making your A/C unit run harder and longer, using more energy and potentially freezing the coils. It only takes a few minutes to change the filter, and it’s well worth the time to make sure your unit is running efficiently. While recommendations can vary depending on the unit, generally speaking, filters should be cleaned or replaced about 45 to 90 days.

    What are the signs that my air conditioning needs repair?

    When your A/C isn’t functioning properly, you may notice your unit turning on and off repeatedly, running constantly, blowing warm air, or not blowing at all. If you notice strange, new noises or smells coming out of your A/C unit, you should have your system checked right away.

    How can I improve the efficiency of my air conditioner?

    Luckily, there are simple steps you can take to make your A/C unit run more efficiently, which will not only help you extend the life of your air conditioning system but could also help you save on energy costs.

    • Replace or clean filters regularly.
    • Install blinds, drapes, shutters, or other window coverings to reduce the amount of direct sunlight entering your home.
    • Get regular A/C tune-ups at least once a year in the spring before A/C season starts to prevent any potential issues and make sure your unit is operating optimally.

    Courteous, super professional and knowledgeable. On time, high quality. Love the whole crew and owner of this place. We remodeled a home and needed repairs. I will never use another company again. These guys are fabulous. Even found us bathroom fans that are actually quiet and aesthetic. Totally went with our decor. Came out on Christmas Eve one time to install anew thermostat and stayed while we downloaded the app and made sure we knew how to use it.
