Should you get a ductless air conditioning system? It’s not an easy or cut-and-dried answer. First, let’s explain that traditional air conditioning in homes and businesses in Englewood, Florida are usually referred to as “central air.” In Florida, central air makes sense because you want whole-home air conditioning. A ductless air conditioning system is also an option. Ductless systems for both cooling and heating are popular.
Before you make a decision on which is right for you, here are some considerations you will want to talk with your air conditioning professional from Symbiont Service Air Conditioning and get your questions answered before you make any final decisions.
Should You Get A Ductless Air Conditioning System?
Here are some questions to think about before you give us a call.
We love our pets. Dogs and cats help make our lives complete and offer companionship but they also bring with them fur and dander. If you have pets, have you given any thought to how that might be impacting your indoor air? Do pets impact filters in the air conditioner? The air conditioning professionals at Symbiont Air Conditioning in Englewood, Florida say, “yes!”
You can’t stop your pet from shedding. Even if you brush your pet regularly, he will still shed and that shedding fur and dander can impact the quality of the air in your home. Using a high quality air filter in your HVAC unit will help you with the air you breathe!
Other than turning the thermostat up on your air conditioner and sitting in a too-hot house, are there ways you can save on your air conditioning bills? The professionals from Symbiont Air Conditioning have tips on how Florida homeowners can slash cooling costs — and it’s easier than you think!
In addition to the heat, Englewood, Florida residents are battered with humidity and that is what really amps up the sweltering temperatures. If you want to stay cool and enjoy summer we have some tips to help you save money on your air conditioning bills.
When it comes to your air conditioning unit, the professionals from Symbiont Air Conditioning urge you to give them a call if you notice any of the following noises.
Sounds You Don’t Want To Hear From The A/C Unit
Squealing. When you hear the motor squeal or screech when it turns on, this is a red flag. Turn the unit off and give us a call immediately. In many cases this noise is an indication that the belt is wearing out. A belt is an easy and relatively inexpensive repair, but you don’t want to run the unit until the belt breaks. Another cause for screeching or squealing could be that the unit needs to be lubricated and/or sealed.
Thumping. If you hear a thumping sound from inside the unit when the blower motor is running, that could mean something is stuck in the blades. Another cause for the thumping sound could be there is something lodged in the housing of the blower and it’s hitting it when the blades turn. This could lead to the motor struggling to operate and could lead to the motor burning out.
Rattling or banging. Again, these types of noise could be something simple like debris having fallen into the unit or it could be because the motor or blower assembly is loosening. This is an issue, like the others, that needs to be addressed as soon as you notice the noise. If it’s happening because of a loose part, that component could come loose and fall into the motor assembly and lead to the motor burning out.
Some noises are worse than others when you hear them in and around the air conditioning unit, but all noises — especially those out of the ordinary — should be checked as soon as you notice it. Don’t wait until the unit fails and the repair costs more than it originally could have.
