All Year Cooling Reviews & Customer Testimonials

Households across America rely on their water heaters for warm water for bathing and showering and washing their hands, dishes, and clothes.  If your water heater fails to function as it should, how would you know? These common signs indicate your water heater isn’t working properly: Your Water Isn’t Heating When your water doesn’t heat, this is the biggest clue that your water heater isn’t  doing its job right. The problem may be as simple as a tripped circuit breaker or faulty pilot light, or your entire water heater may need replacing. These units typically last between 10 and 15 years, so if you’ve had yours a decade or more, its failure is likely. Your Water Tank is Leaking Water leaks around your water tank are never a good sign. Leaks may result from or later cause internal problems with your water heater. Leaky water tanks usually need replacing. Rust on your water tank’s  surface is often a precursor to a leaking tank. Getting your water tank serviced regularly can help prevent rust build-up. Your service professional should change your water heater’s anode rod every few years to prevent corrosion. Your Water Heater Makes Strange Noises You’ve  probably noticed your water heater making hissing and low popping sound as the water heats up. However, very loud cracking and popping noises, similar to the sound of popcorn popping, are likely caused by sediment in your water heater. You’ll hear the pop every time a steam bubble from your water heater rises up from the sediment layer. When there’s sediment in your water heater, it must work harder to heat your water. It’ll need to run longer to get the right result and could overheat. A plumber or water heater service professional can flush your water heater and remove the sediment. Banging noises may also indicate a water heater problem. You’re likely to hear these noises when your water heater’s valves shut. A plumber or service professional can inspect your water heater and replace or clear the valves if necessary. Your Water Doesn’t Look or Taste Good When you turn on the faucet, you expect to see clear, refreshing water. However, if your water doesn’t look or taste right, a faulty water heater may be to blame. Before a water heater fails, water may look rusty or cloudy. Your water may look rusty if your water heater’s anode rod has dissolved. Excess calcium or magnesium in the tank can make the water look cloudy. These minerals can interfere with the water heater’s efficiency. The kind of sediment that causes the loud popping noises can also appear in your water. The water may have a metallic taste. Report your concerns to a service technician as soon as possible, as the longer a problem remains unresolved, the more damage it can cause. Some modern air conditioners connect to hot water tanks to function as water heaters. If your old water heater needs replacing, call the experts at All Year Cooling at 888-204-5554 to learn more about one of these modern air conditioner units.

- How to Know if Your Water Heater is Working Properly

Is your home ready for the winter? Don’t wait until the temperatures drop to uncomfortable levels to find out. Just as your air conditioning needs a check before the summer highs hit their stride, you should prep your heating system before you need it. Your home HVAC maintenance should include a few simple checks that you can perform yourself. However, furnaces are complex systems that require professional attention to run in peak condition. Follow these steps to make sure your heat is ready for the winter season. Perform These Steps Yourself Start by testing the thermostat. Wait for a cold night or get up early in the morning and turn back the dial. Did the heater turn on? You don’t want to go through the other steps on this list only to discover that the system won’t turn on when you need it. There are several other quick DIY fixes and checks you can perform yourself. For example, you can replace the air filters in your home if they’re safely accessible, and you can do a surface cleaning to remove dust and any debris. You can also check your doors and windows for air leaks, though a professional home energy audit is a better option if you want to detect every place where you’ll be losing heat this winter. Bleeding the radiator valves is another easy step to perform yourself. Remember to check your carbon monoxide detectors and change the batteries if applicable. Carbon monoxide leaks can be fatal. Place the alarms near all sleeping areas, and keep them at least five feet off the ground. When to Call in the Professionals There are plenty of things only a professional should work with on your heating and cooling system, and an expert can lend their advice on every aspect of home winter preparation. For example, a specialist can check the fan output and search for leaks along the ducts. They can also simply inspect the system and let you know if there are any issues you should handle now to avoid major problems down the road. Things like frayed belts, for instance, are a quick replacement if they’re caught in time. But they can become a major problem if they break completely. Professionals can also check that your thermostat is giving an accurate reading and maintain critical machine components. An HVAC professional can dig deeper than a filter replacement and surface wipe-down of your equipment. Consult an expert for a top-to-bottom cleaning and maintenance before you put your system through heavy use when the weather turns. Check It Before You Need It Remember to have your heater examined during the fall season when temperatures are still comfortable. The last thing you want is to have to wait a few days or longer for parts and repairs once it gets cold. Checking ahead of the winter will also give you enough time to consider a replacement if a more efficient system is a viable option for you. Contact All Year Cooling in South Florida for a total check of your HVAC system, and rest easy knowing that you’ll stay warm all winter.

The Broward County Fair is making its long-awaited comeback for the first time in five years. The fair is open Friday, November 17-26th at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, for the first time since 1996. It couldn’t be more perfect timing with Thanksgiving break coinciding exactly with the fairs dates. The kids have off school, you have holiday time off – there’s nothing holding you back! For 10 days, you can take the family to enjoy all kinds of rides and indulge in funnel cake, cotton candy and ice cream (It’s the holidays so you have an excuse to indulge). As Floridians, we are some of the only Americans who can wear T-shirts and shorts in November and still be hot. Most of the time it can be unpleasant to be outside for long periods of time, but take a ride on the Ferris wheel and delight in the wind in your face with your loved ones. With over 75 rides, shows and attractions, there’s something in the family for the daredevils and for the ones looking for more leisurely rides and entertainment (even if that just means the Grand Carousel). The fair is free up to 26” tall, and $6-10 depending on your height and options. There are also options for unlimited rides for the thrill seekers as well. It is located at 901 S Federal Highway, Hallandale Beach, FL. With the holiday season already upon us, it’s time for families and loved ones to get together and enjoy each other’s company.

In most regions of the country, getting your HVAC system ready for the holidays means getting a tune-up for your furnace, but Florida isn’t like other states. The mild winters can get warm without warning, making it necessary for you to make sure both your furnace and air conditioner are ready for the workload. To avoid a holiday catastrophe, here are some tips to get your south Florida air conditioner and other HVAC components in tip-top condition. Change the Air Filter One of the easiest steps to prepare your AC for the holidays is changing the filter. The only thing that you really need to know is what type of filter to choose. Each filter has a specific Minimum Efficiency Report Value, or MERV rating. This value shows the fineness of the filter, and the higher the number, the more efficient the filter is at removing particles and other contaminants. While this improves indoor air quality, it also allows the airflow to move freely from the air conditioner and furnace, through the air ducts, and into your home. This provides pinpoint accuracy from your thermostat and reduces the wear and tear on your HVAC system, creating a longer lifespan and preventing emergency repairs during the holiday season. Getting a Tune-up If you’re expecting a number of guests for the holiday season, you should already know that nearly everyone is comfortable at a different temperature. That’s why having your air conditioner ready to go is of the utmost importance. When you schedule a tune-up with one of our factory-trained technicians, they’ll ensure that everything is in prime condition by inspecting the various components. This will make your HVAC system run effectively, while also limiting or avoiding potential repairs while you have guests in town. In addition, you should have both the air conditioner and furnace checked to make sure that both are running smoothly, even if you don’t think you’ll need to use both. Cleaning the Ductwork Although it’s often overlooked, clean ductwork is one of the most important factors in improving comfort, efficiency, and indoor air quality in your home. While air filters provide an adequate first line of defense from dust, some can still get into the ductwork. Over time, this buildup can obstruct airflow, and if treated air makes it through the ductwork, it spews dust into your home, creating an unsafe environment. When you get the ductwork cleaned, air can flow freely through the ductwork, enabling you to find the perfect temperature to suit everyone’s needs during a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. On top of that, you won’t have to worry about breathing in the dust and debris that comes as a natural result of running your HVAC system. Since 1973, All Year Cooling has provided trusted AC and heating service from Vero Beach to Homestead and everywhere in between. When you want to make sure that your HVAC system is ready for the holidays or schedule an appointment, call All Year Cooling at 888-204-5554, send a text to 954-610-6620, or visit our website today.
