What Qualifications Should I Look for in a Technician?

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

You have just built or bought a beautiful home. The next step is to outfit it so that you and your family can enjoy your new home. One of the most important fittings you will have to get done is the HVAC system. Without a proper functioning heating and cooling system, you cannot guarantee the comfort of your family during the hot summers or the cold winters.

Selecting your Service Provider

How do you select the company or service provider for installing your HVAC unit? It has to serve you for many years to come, and the very air you and your family breathe will be pumped through this system. So it is essential to do your homework, and also ask around the neighborhood or your builder or contractor for some of the top names in the area for installing and maintaining of air conditioning units. Don’t forget to pick a company who does installations, maintenance and servicing. All too frequently, your maintenance or service guy will find fault with the installation, claiming that it wasn’t done properly and hence you are facing this problem. (more…)

When Is a Second Unit Necessary?

You have an air conditioning unit, but it seems woefully inadequate to fight the sweltering heat of the Jacksonville, Florida summers. You can always try to fix an auxiliary unit in one of the bedrooms or the living room – wherever you and your family are likely to spend most of your time. The second unit has to be decided on the size of the room where you are planning on fixing it.

If the air conditioning in your HVAC system is not capable of giving the cool comfort you desire, then the only option is to go for a supplementary air conditioning unit which can be fixed to a window. You have to decide on the capacity of the air conditioner based on the size of the room. It is very simple to calculate the required size of your air conditioning unit for a room. Simply measure the length and breadth of a room. Then get the product of the length and breadth, and then multiply the result by 25 BTUs. For instance, if your room is 15 X 15, the product is = 225. For the required size of the air conditioner, multiply 225 X 25 BTUs, = 5625 BTUs. So, look for an air conditioner with a cooling quotient of 5625 BTUs for optimum efficiency. (more…)
