How a Ductless Mini Split Can Solve Your Home Comfort Problems

Monday, October 10th, 2016

Are you looking for ways to cool off a home that doesn’t have any ductwork? Window AC units are a common installation for those without central AC, but it’s not necessarily the best type of system for your money. They’re inefficient, inconsistent, and, frankly, they don’t do a very good job.

A ductless mini split is a different way to avoid major home renovations while still getting the comfort and efficiency you need. What makes it so different?

How a Wi-Fi Thermostat Improves Your Home

Monday, August 29th, 2016

Programmable thermostats changed the way we thought about our air conditioning systems. Before programmable digital thermostats came along, it was difficult to ever set the temperature just where you wanted it. And, because you couldn’t schedule the temperature ahead of time, you were forced to either leave the AC on all day when you left the house, using up energy, or else you had to turn the temperature up to an uncomfortable temperature before you left, and come home to a hot house later.

Some of the Unusual Movies Released for Valentine’s Day

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

Hollywood has always tried to match movies up to the seasons to draw droves of viewers to the theaters: October is packed with fright-offerings, while the winter holidays skew toward warm and pleasing family films (as well as Oscar hopefuls). Valentine’s Day falls in an odd spot when it comes to the movie release calendar, however, since February tends to be a slower time for the film industry. The studios are as likely to slot strange movies that don’t fit anywhere else in their annual schedules into the Valentine’s Day weekend as they are films with powerful romantic appeal.

So, while the second weekend of February has featured hugely successful romantic comedies like Hitch, The Wedding Singer, and (of course) Valentine’s Day, some truly weird choices have debuted in this weekend as well. And a few have even gone on to tremendous success despite the bizarre match with the holiday. Here are a couple of the odder Valentine’s Day movie releases:

  • Dracula (1931): Yes, this Halloween perennial and the start of Universal Studio’s Classic Monsters actually came out on Valentine’s Day! But perhaps this makes some sense, as the Dracula legend has often received a “doomed lover” approach in the many years since Bela Lugosi made the aristocratic vampire a screen icon.
  • The Silence of the Lambs (1991): Does any film seem less appropriate for Valentine’s Day than this unnerving and sometimes very violent psychological thriller? What’s even more astonishing than the film’s release date is that The Silence of the Lambs eventually nabbed the Oscar for Best Picture, an almost unheard of occurrence for a movie released so early in the year.
  • Daredevil (2003): This Marvel comic adaptation featuring Ben Affleck as a blind superhero does contain a romantic subplot, but the stronger connection to Valentine’s Day may just be that Daredevil wears a bright red costume.
  • A Good Day to Die Hard (2013): The least successful of the Die Hard film franchise, this is an excellent example of a studio dropping a film into a weekend where it doesn’t fit in the hopes that it works as counter-programming. (It didn’t.)
  • Wayne’s World (1992): Now here is an example of counter-programming that clicked with audiences. This comedy based on a Saturday Night Live sketch turned into one of that year’s biggest hits and spawned a sequel.

Whether you celebrate Valentine’s Day with a trip to the movie theater, or you have your own special plans, everyone here at Air Conditioning Experts, Inc. hopes you and your loved ones have a wonderful weekend.

Maintaining Effective Air Conditioning

Thursday, April 24th, 2014

At no other season of the year in Florida are we more aware of our home’s comfort systems than during the summer. And you may have noticed that summer is approaching us… fast. It’s time to ready our air conditioners for the long hot and humid season.

We have some tips for how you can keep your air conditioner working effectively for you through another summer. This will help you achieve higher comfort, lower energy bills, and straightforward peace of mind. With Air Conditioning Experts around to assist you, you’ll always have skilled technicians available to work on your air conditioning in Lakeland, FL.

Tips for keeping your air conditioning system effective

  • Schedule regular maintenance: This is the most important step you will take with your air conditioning all year. An annual maintenance plan with a trained HVAC technician will do marvels at keeping the system from premature aging, unnecessary repairs, abrupt breakdowns, and excessive power drain. Spring is the ideal time to arrange for maintenance, since it will give you space to take care of any repairs the technician discovers and makes scheduling easier because heating and cooling contractors have less crowded work calendars.
  • Change the air filter every month: During maintenance, the technician will change out the AC’s air filter, which traps debris from entering the system cabinet through the return vent. Watch the technician do this part of the job so you’ll know where the filter is and how to change it. Once a month, swap out the old filter for a new one. This will make certain the air conditioner has unclogged airflow and won’t overwork. After summer ends, you can drop down to changing the air filter every two months.
  • Keep lower temperature settings on the thermostat: Florida can grow brutally hot in the summer, but that doesn’t mean you’ll have better comfort if you push the thermostat down as low as it should go. First, avoid using the air conditioner if the outside temperature is 80°F or lower; open windows and use fans to cool off. When you do turn the AC on, keep it in the lower 70s, not down around 60°F. Every degree you set the air conditioner higher is a reduction of 2-5% off your electricity bills. Plus, your AC will work less and age slower.

Start off the summer right with membership in the Comfort Club from Air Conditioning Experts. When you join, you’ll receive two preventive maintenance tune-ups each year, one for your AC and the other in the fall for your heater—new regular size filter included. You will also save 15% on parts and labor.

Call our team of trained professionals today to learn more about what we can do for your air conditioning system in Lakeland, FL. You’ll be glad you did.
