The coronavirus pandemic doesn’t seem to be easing up and many Englewood, Florida homeowners and commercial property owners are asking, “how to safely hire this winter.” It is a question the geothermal professionals from Symbiont Air Conditioning talk with customers about all the time.
We put together a video to let you know what we are doing to keep our team safe and to keep our customers safe when we pay a service visit.
Is the air conditioning in your home or office not cooling as well as it used to? If you think it isn’t, you’re probably right and that means you need to call on the expertise of a geothermal HVAC professional from Symbiont Air Conditioning to inspect it and determine what’s wrong and how it can be repaired. If a repair will be more costly than a replacement, we will let you know that, too.
Bbbrrrr. It’s cold outside, but is it time to turn on the heat? Some people will wear sweaters and put off turning on the heat as long as possible. Others will turn on the heat at the first sign of temperatures below seventy degrees! The geothermal air conditioning experts from Symbiont Air Conditioning regularly talk with their customers about the “perfect” time to turn on the heater for the season.
Hint: There is no perfect time! Just as when you turn on the air conditioning for the first time each year, turning on the heat is personal as well. Although there are some indicators that we offer to help you know when to make the switch from AC to heat.
It may not seem like winter is approaching — especially in Englewood, Florida but it will be here soon. Is your HVAC winter-ready? It’s a question the air conditioning professionals from Symbiont Air Conditioning in Florida talk with their commercial and residential customers about at this time of the year.
Winter, such as it is, in Florida will soon be here and even if your air conditioning unit weathered summer with flying colors, you need to know it will keep you warm when you need it this winter. Because the heating and air conditioning system works year-round, you need to ensure it is ready to warm the house or office when the time arrives.
You certainly don’t want to wake up to a cold house or walk into a cold office, right?
Who wants a good night’s sleep? That may seem like a trick question, but it isn’t. A good night’s sleep will make the next day better because you’ll feel better and be more revitalized. If you ever wondered how air conditioning can help you sleep better, we have the answers.
Why is your home so dusty? That certainly isn’t something the air conditioning professionals from Symbiont Air Conditioning in Englewood, Florida would point out BUT they do know that dirty air conditioner air filters can lead to a thin layer of dust coating your furniture and floors.
The air filter in an HVAC unit is essential to the air quality of your home. You can certainly check the cleanliness — or dirtiness — of the filters in your air conditioner. If they are dirty you will want to clean them and replace them with new, clean ones. When we pay a service visit for your HVAC unit, checking and cleaning or replacing the filters is one of the many steps we take to assure the unit is working as effectively and efficiently as it should.
What else should you know about air filters and dust? The MERV rating, for sure. This may not be a term you’re familiar with but it is the rating of the impact your air conditioning filter will have on the air you breathe.
Floridians spend much of their time indoors to escape the heat and humidity. But now your home feels humid! How to get rid of home humidity is a question the experts from Symbiont Air Conditioning get asked all the time.
Did you know that Florida is the state that has the most humidity? It’s been shown that Florida sees humidity levels for more than 50% of the year and those levels are also higher than 50%. No wonder we are so uncomfortable when we step outdoors! The problem starts, though when you’re sitting in your house and you feel “sticky” and that is because of the humidity.
Humidity is uncomfortable, but it can also lead to serious illness or ill effects, especially in the elderly. If your home, or the home of a loved one feels humid there are a few reasons why:
The air conditioner is too large
The home design is so airtight that it doesn’t allow for air flow
When you share your home with others it may be a constant battle to find the “best temperature.” The air conditioning professionals from Symbiont Air Conditioning in Englewood, Florida offer tips for what is the best temperature for your Florida home. Know that even when we share this information the “best” is still subjective!
Consider that in Florida we are, and will continue to be, dealing with heat and humidity for many months to come and that means we want our homes to be an escape from that. Once winter arrives you’re looking to keep warm and comfortable even though Florida rarely sees or deals with frost or below freezing temps, there is a chill in the air that you want to alleviate, right?
Even when you settle on a perfect temp for your home, the insulation, the air flow and even how well your home is sealed, your 72 degrees may feel different than the 72 degrees you live with in the office or when you visit a friend or family member.
