air duct cleaningAir conditioning is a must-have living in South Florida. The heat outside our doors is intense, and if problems in our air conditioning systems surface, it can be quite costly. Being aware of the possible issues that can arise in your A/C unit will help maintain your system right now and for years to come. If the following problems are persistent, call a professional right away.

  1. Low Refrigerant/Leakage – Refrigerant is a chemical that cools the air inside you’re A/C unit. If leakage occurs, the temperature of the system may fluctuate, and that is a huge no-no if you’re trying to keep cool throughout the scorching summer. Make sure the leak is located and repaired immediately.
  2. Compressor – This is the driving force for the refrigerant in your air conditioning unit. It thrusts the coolant through the coils to keep your house fresh. This is a secondary issue to low refrigerant because if the compressor overheats, it will seize and fail.
  3. Evaporator and Condenser Coils – Evaporator coils absorbs the heat in the air and send it back into the house as cold air. Condenser coils are situated just outside the compressor. The coils can become corroded over time and frozen if not maintained correctly.
  4. Capacitors – The motors that power the compressor and fans rely on the capacitors to function correctly. Jolts of electricity keep the engine working nonstop, and if the capacitor out, the A/C unit will need care very soon.
  5. Filters – Clogged or dirty filters are one of the main reasons for A/C units for dysfunction. Some filters need to be changed monthly, tri-monthly or are reusable. Accumulation of dirt will reduce the air flow to your home and prevent your system from performing to the best of its ability.

If You want Another Way to Stay Energy Efficient, You Need Insulation in Your Life

Stay Energy Efficient With Attic Insulation

Here in South Florida, our air conditioning bills go through the roof during the summer when the sun won’t quit. With the necessity to have a fresh home proving to be more indispensable than ever, it is without a question that having your A/C unit working in pristine condition is a must-have.

Insulation ServiceBenefits of Having Insulation

Right off the bat, let’s talk about what insulation is. It is a product that helps reduce the amount of heat loss and gain by offering a barrier between the levels that have a significant change in temperature. With basements being non-existent in Florida, our attics are the first line of defense to protect against heat gain due to lack of insulation.

The cold air that we thought was circulating our house was going straight through the roof. Insulation inside your attic could reduce the amount of energy you’re using each month and will give your air conditioning unit the optimum circumstances.

Cooling FX Inc. uses hypoallergenic fiberglass insulation for all attic insulations. Specifically, we use AttiCat Equipment and Owens Corning Expanding PINK FIBERGLAS Insulation within our company. The reason we use this specific type of insulation is that it won’t settle after installation and it maintains its power over an extended period.

R-Value and Reducing Costs

The level of installation, or R-value, is dependent on your home and the climate you live in.  The R means resistance to heat.  The higher the level installed in your attic, R19, R30, R38, the more heat it will keep away from coming inside your home.  Florida has an extremely low R-value which indicates that the thermal performance in that area is reduced. It is exceptionally costly, but these levels help us determine the amount of insulation is needed in that area.

Aside from reducing a considerable percentage of the energy lost in your home, insulation also reduces cost. Your bill every month spent on energy will lessen remarkably. Having to pay your energy bills in the summer won’t put as much of a dent in your wallet this summer thanks to insulation. Call Cooling FX Inc. today if you have any concerns about insulations or anything else.

Cooling FX Inc. is reputable and trustworthy. We offer same-day service, financing options, and we’re fully licensed and insured.

How much does installing a new air conditioner cost?

AC Installation

AC installation is an absolute necessity in some parts of the United States. This becomes especially true during the summer months. Newer air conditioning units tend to produce less sound, create a more powerful stream of cool air and use energy in a more efficient way. These benefits that come with buying a newer model come at a higher cost, however.
That is, there are some factors homeowners should consider when deciding on which air conditioning unit to buy. Here are some tips for finding the right AC installation.

How much does installing a new air conditioner cost? The Basics

Homeowners need to find out how large their air conditioning unit should be. Experts measure air conditioning units in “tons.” Tons refers to how much heat the AC unit can remove within a one-hour interval.

For example, a one-ton unit removes 12,000 British thermal units–abbreviated to BTUs–while a three-ton system removes 36,000. Essentially, the larger a user’s home, the stronger the air conditioner needs to be.

What Is a Ton?

To illustrate, a 1,6000 square foot house requires a 2.5 ton unit. Furthermore, homeowners need to consider the type of environment they will be installing their air conditioning unit in.

For example, basements are naturally cooler than the rest of the house. Thus, homeowners often do not include the basement when taking the size of the home into consideration for AC installation.

Is a Contractor Necessary?

Homeowners who are inexperienced when it comes to installing air conditioning units should consider hiring a contractor. Some of the AC installation processes can become pretty technical. For example, homes who have never had central air conditioning will need new breakers in the electrical panel.

In addition, the contractor will need to install wires throughout the house’s foundation, new ductwork that links to the home’s HVAC and will need to mount the unit on either some metal brackets or a concrete pad.

H2: Benefits of AC Installation

AC installation saves homeowners the hassle of researching how to manually install the units themselves. It prevents both injury and sinking too much time into the installation. The air conditioning itself has the benefit of providing clean, cool air during harsher climates.

Average Prices

Here are the average prices for AC installation. Homeowners should keep in mind these prices may fluctuate depending on the company and place. A basic two-ton model typically costs $3,000. A mid-range unit typically costs $5,000. The best air conditioning systems can cost over $10,000.
