All Year Cooling Reviews & Customer Testimonials

Every year, Florida experiences its heaviest rainfall from May through October. During these five months of the year, you may wonder how to best protect your home from the excess moisture. Heavy rain can cause flooding in your house or yard, destroy your landscaping, and lead to leaks if your roof isn’t in good shape. Protect your property during the rainy season by taking a few steps before the clouds open and start pouring down. Protect Your AC Unit While your AC system is created to withstand the elements, occasionally you need to call your air conditioning technician to inspect likely damage. In extreme weather conditions like a torrential downpour, your air conditioning can experience severe damage to the moving parts and electrical components if it sits in standing water. Inspect the area around your AC unit to make sure it isn’t in a flood zone and located in a safe space away from falling branches. Inspect the Roof A leaky roof is a major problem for any homeowner. Water coming through the roof can cause significant damage to the structure, including the drywall and flooring, as well as destroy your personal possessions. If the leak goes undetected because it’s in an attic or another rarely accessed area, you could end up with mold growth and other concerning issues. Before the rainy season begins, hire a roofing inspector to take a closer look at your roof. The inspector can determine the condition of your roof and how much longer it will last before requiring repair or replacement. Check Your Property It’s also smart to take a walk around your property and look for signs of flooding or other damage. Keep an eye out for water spots that are settling or puddling in your yard. When the soil is backfilled around the foundation, it will be looser than other sections of dirt, so water can move through it and cause damage to the foundation below. If your foundation has cracks or other damage, you may want to consider bringing in an expert for repair since water can seep through these cracks and flood your house. Fix the Gutters Your home has a gutter system to move water away from the roof and allow it to drain in the proper place. If your gutters are clogged or broken, they won’t be able to maintain adequate drainage, which often results in damage to the roof as water sits up there throughout the rainstorm. Clean out your gutters every April, and do it again a few months into the rainy season to make sure water can flow properly. Add or Replace Weatherstripping Weatherstripping in your home can prevent moisture from seeping in through cracks and gaps around windows and doors. If your weatherstripping is cracked or missing, replace it before the rainy season starts. An added benefit of this task is that it can help improve efficiency and reduce the cost of your monthly energy bills. Confirm Your Insurance Policy A flood can be devastating to a home, so it’s critical to make sure you’re covered if anything should happen. Preparing your home and doing everything you can to avoid a flood is smart, but you should make sure your homeowner’s insurance policy covers flooding as well. Up to 20 percent of flood insurance claims come from areas that are deemed low to moderate risk, so don’t assume you’re fine if you live in one of these zones.

The high summer temperatures can be a definite temptation to leave the air conditioner on full-blast all season. With these tips, your summer energy bills will lower and your air conditioner will thank you. Shut Off Lights and Electronics On hot summer days, shut off lights around the house to help save energy and lower the temperature in your home. Often, light bulbs put out as much heat as light, so turning them off can drastically affect the temperature of a home, as can unplugging unnecessary electronics, which produce heat waves even when not in use. You’d seriously be surprised by how much light affects a room’s temperature. In addition, by just using daylight, you can save energy on electricity as well as cutting down AC use! Be Smart With Your Fan Use Fans are a great way to help cool yourself off without having to overuse your air conditioner. Electric fans or ceiling fans both contribute significantly to cooling homes – especially in specific areas where you are lounging or working. Using an electric fan instead of your central air conditioner helps to deliver cool air exactly where you want it, rather than overusing your AC and charging major bills to keep the whole house cool. This can be especially helpful when there is a group of people located in one room, for example movie night in the living room. With so much body heat in one area, it is natural for the room to feel hotter and causing you to subsequently crank the AC to a more comfortable temperature. By just putting a rotating fan in the room, it can feel cooler and a more manageable price. Use Windows Strategically Your windows are a source of both cooling and heat depending on the time of day during the summer months. Open your windows at night to let the cooler air in, but keep them closed during the day, along with drapes and shades, to reduce heat. If you don’t want to close off your house to the light so drastically, consider placing larger potted plants in front of windows to help soak up some of the suns energy rays. Externally, you can also use patio overheads, latticework, and awnings to block some of the sun without creating such a dark space indoors. Insulate, Insulate, Insulate Attic insulation will have a great impact on the internal temperature of your home. Insulation will help keep the cool air from your air conditioning inside your home instead of letting it escape through your ceiling and ventilation systems. For more tips on cooling off during the summer months, check out more of our blogs, or if your AC just isn’t cool enough call All Year Cooling today at 888-702-4793. We specialize in repairs, maintenance and brand new AC installs. Published: March 20,2014 | Revised: May 15, 2018

Whether your unit goes out in the middle of summer in South Florida, or you’re replacing it proactively to avoid breakdowns, consider these four things before you make your purchase. How Loud is it? Every unit should be clearly marked with a noise score in decibels. If you have a light sleeper in your home or young children who might awaken easily in the night, you want to get the quietest model that fits your budget. Units with a rating in the high 30s to mid-40s should emit little noise except for the blowing of the fan. Where Will You Put It? If this is an outdoor unit, as opposed to an indoor window unit, you want to avoid placement in direct sunlight, if possible. The air conditioner pulls air from the outside, cools it, and sends it into your home. The hotter the external conditions, the harder the unit has to work. A unit that runs for many hours every day means higher utility bills and a shorter lifespan for the machine. Are Smart Features Important to You? As technology advances, new air conditioners and thermostats, like NEST,  learn your favorite temperatures and schedules it according to when you’re home the most. Along with easy to use apps, you can get real-time and summary data on your unit’s efficiency. If those things matter to you, check the specs on the air conditioner you’re considering. If those features don’t appeal to you, then you might save some money by picking up a unit more basic features. What is Covered by the Warranty? Check the warranty coverage carefully so you know what to expect. Take note of how long the warranty lasts as well as whether it’s for parts only or if labor is also covered. Buying a new air conditioner is a significant investment in your home. Do your homework and let All Year Cooling help you get the right unit for your home.

Not having your air conditioner running correctly when you need it is miserable, and knowing exactly what the problem is and how it can be fixed is equally difficult. Start by taking a closer look at the unit’s symptoms. For example, if your air conditioner is blowing hot air, the issue could be connected to your refrigerant, thermostat, air filters, or another part. Troubleshoot using some of the items below and contact an HVAC services company for servicing. Air Conditioner Problems You Can Correct on Your Own Do a few basic checks to confirm that your system is running properly. The following tasks are easy to perform yourself. If a problem continues, you’ll know that your system may warrant professional attention. Thaw your air conditioning unit: Your HVAC system could be blowing hot air because condensation has frozen on the coils. If you’ve set the unit to run on the highest setting on a hot day, the air conditioner could run cold enough to freeze the coils. Turn off the system for an hour or two to allow it to thaw. To avoid this problem, avoid operating the air conditioner on its highest setting for extended periods of time. Reset your breakers: Your outside unit relies on electricity like any other appliance. Your thermostat may be operating correctly, but if the unit’s power supply is off, you won’t get cool air. Find your breaker box and switch on the power supply to your air conditioner. If this problem recurs or if you discover an expired fuse, contact an electrician for help. Replace your air filters: Replacing air filters is an important and easy part of routine HVAC system maintenance. If you neglect this task for too long, the filter could become clogged, preventing cool air from flowing through it. Replacing your unit’s filter, as long as you can safely access it, is easy to do. Air Conditioner Problems That May Need Professional Attention Hopefully, one of the solutions above got your system running again. If not, you may need to contact an HVAC service professional for help. Below are a few issues that require a specialist’s attention: Faulty compressor: A bad compressor can lead to overheating and problems with refrigerant. Only a professional can confirm an issue with this component. Refrigerant issues: Refrigerant leaks could prevent air from cooling properly. Since handling refrigerant is dangerous, only a professional should correct refrigerant issues. Faulty wiring: HVAC units are complex systems with plenty of wires. An electrical issue could be causing problems, and repairs will require professional servicing. Faulty thermostat: Overheating, temperature fluctuations, and other issues may indicate a faulty thermostat. Before peak cooling and heating seasons that will require your system to go through heavy use, schedule an HVAC system cleaning and maintenance check with All Year Cooling to make sure that your system will run efficiently when you need it most. Whether one of the do-it-yourself items worked or you had to call a professional, use this experience to note the importance of routine maintenance for your HVAC system.
