But that doesn’t mean it’s immune to problems.

Here’s How a Ductless AC System Keeps You Comfortable

Monday, February 6th, 2017

ductless-AC-living-roomAir ducts are essential for the operation of most whole-house air conditioning systems. The ducts are the pathway air travels to reach the rooms in the home from a central blower unit indoors, which connects to an outdoor system. This is called a split-system air conditioning unit, and it is a reliable and efficient way to get cool air.

But there’s a way to utilize this same technology without the need for a central blower unit. A ductless system allows people who would normally rely on window air conditioners or portable room units a chance to get the same comfort and efficiency as people with ducted AC systems.

How Does a Ductless Air Conditioner Work?

Monday, April 13th, 2015

Many homeowners without ducts or any type of whole-home air conditioning system find alternative ways to cool down the house. Some simply rely on fans to cool down, but of course, fans do not actually lower the temperature in a room. Others try not to be home during the sunniest hours of the hottest days, which certainly is not an ideal situation, and not always a possibility. Still others cannot make use of a new room addition or workshop on a particularly hot day.

It’s Time to Consider Air Conditioning Maintenance in Lakeland

Friday, February 20th, 2015

We may still be in the heart of winter, but it isn’t too early to think about summer – and your summer air conditioning. Getting ahead of our hot weather with a winter air conditioning maintenance appointment in Lakeland can be of great benefit to both you and your air conditioning system. You may wondering if it’s a little too early for air conditioning maintenance, but the experts at Air Conditioning Experts are ready and waiting to help you get your AC ready for this coming summer!

Why Now?

There are a few reasons why scheduling your air conditioning maintenance now is a good idea:

You’ll Be Prepared for Hot Weather

We can see high temperatures pretty early on in Lakeland, and no one wants to turn on their AC the first hot day of the year only to find it isn’t working. Scheduling maintenance now gives your technician the opportunity to detect any existing or developing problems and take care of them before the warm weather hits.

No Critters

The metal cabinet that houses your outdoor components can be a pretty great place for animals to hunker down for the cooler winter months. Animal nests can cause a bevy of problems, and a winter maintenance appointment will discover any unwanted house guests.

Removes Winter Debris Build-Up

It isn’t unusual for leaves, sticks and other yard debris to clutter your system’s outdoor unit, especially if you haven’t used your unit for a few months. Cleaning is a big part of any maintenance appointment, and if your outdoor unit does have debris, it will be cleaned out before it can cause any problems.

Better Energy Efficiency

The full tune-up your AC system receives during a maintenance appointment allows the system to work optimally; when your system works optimally, it operates efficiently.

Reasons to Consider a Ductless AC in Valrico

Friday, February 13th, 2015

Did you end last summer with the knowledge that your air conditioner was on its last legs? It may not be summer yet, but it’s never too late to start considering your options for air conditioning replacement. One system you may want to consider for your Valrico home is a ductless AC. There are a number of benefits ductless systems can offer homeowners, including the option to use the system for both heating and cooling (with heat pump technology), but it’s important to understand how the system works.

Ductless Components

Ductless air conditioners have an outdoor unit that contains the compressor and condenser, but the cool air is distributed indoor blowers that operate individually. The indoor blowers average about 35” in length and can be mounted to walls, ceilings and above doorways and windows, and they connect to the outdoor unit via a conduit drilled into an exterior wall. A single outdoor unit can support up to 4 indoor blowers.

Benefits of Ductless ACs

The most obvious benefit of a ductless AC is that you don’t need to have ductwork to achieve whole-home air conditioning; this can be particularly beneficial for older homes that don’t have ductwork. Another advantage of ductless AC systems is energy efficiency: with a ductless system, you won’t have to worry about air loss from faulty ductwork; additionally, each indoor blower operates independently, so you use only the cooling you need. Lastly, if you install a ductless AC system that has heat pump technology, you’ll have the ability to heat and cool your home with a single device.

Always Hire a Professional

Ductless systems are much easier to install than ducted systems, but this does not mean the average homeowner should endeavor to install his or her ductless AC system as a DIY job. The professionals at Air Conditioning Experts have been installing, repairing and replacing air conditioning systems since 1995, and we bring this experience to every job we have.
