Air Conditioning: A MUST-HAVE in Southwest Florida

Living in Southwest Florida is like living in paradise...a very hot and humid paradise...and unless you like sweating, body odor, and being uncomfortable in your own home, having cool, flowing air is imperative!

No A/C? Welcome Misery.

It’s miserable to be without an air conditioner and it usually happens at the most inconvenient times like 3pm when the Florida sun is blazing hot. What’s even more frustrating is not knowing how to fix it. Is it a simple fix like a tripped circuit breaker or could it be something more serious that requires the help of professionals?

Unless you’re a trained HVAC specialist (which stands for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning), you probably won’t know. And the last thing you want to do is call an AC company in the Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Naples area who charges you $100 just to come to your home and tells you that your circuit breaker was tripped. Ugh!

HVAC FAQs and answers

Q: If I seal leaks in the ducts of my central air conditioning system with duct tape, will my system work more efficiently?
A: Yes, until the duct tape dries out, cracks, and leaks reappear.

Q: If I run ceiling fans continuously in my home, will my house remain cooler? 
A: When you’re in a room where a ceiling fan is running, you will feel cooler because the moving air evaporates sweat quickly. Although you feel cooler, the fan isn’t actually cooling the room. Ceiling fans actually circulate the cool air in a room with the warm air, and this causes the air conditioned room to heat up faster. If you set your thermostat a little higher and use ceiling fans only when you are in a particular room, you might notice a small reduction in your utility bill.

Q: If I upgrade to a larger air conditioning unit, will that give me better results?
A: Possibly. But before spending money on a costly upgrade on an air conditioner that you might not need, ask yourself these questions:

  • Has your current AC system been properly maintained at least twice per year?
  • Has it been cleaned and serviced when needed?
  • Is the unit located in a spot where the sun beats down on it all day?
  • Are there any leaks or cracks that need to be fixed?

Your answers will determine whether or not a larger system will give you better results.
