Spring Pollens Result in Air Conditioning Repairs in Lansbrook

The lush landscape of Lansbrook in East Lake is gorgeous this time of year, but it is very hard to enjoy the scenery when your eyes are watery, you’re constantly sneezing, and your sinuses are clogged. It’s that time of year when you can actually see light blankets of yellow pollen accumulating on your car. As our senses and our symptoms alert, allergy season has arrived in full force!

These pollens and allergens don’t just affect our bodies, but they can have a negative impact on your home’s air conditioning system, even if you remain diligent about changing the air filter regularly. No matter what type of filter you use, pollen particulates can build up within the system – not just on the filter – which will unnecessarily burden the unit, possibly resulting in premature system failure and air conditioning repairs in Lansbrook.

To prevent this from occurring and keep your air quality at its optimum, call the experts at One Hour Air Conditioning and Heating. A highly-skilled, certified service technician will come to your home for a FREE evaluation.

One Hour Air co-owner, Kim O’Kelley emphasized, “It is very important to make sure your system is prepared for even the most stressful conditions with the pollen this time of year.”

Enjoy the beauty of spring again and avoid air conditioning repairs in Lansbrook with the help of One Hour Air!

Air Conditioning Life Expectancy in Florida

It’s very easy to take home comfort for granted. Inevitably, when outdoor temperatures rise with the spring and summer seasons, residential thermostats throughout Florida are lowered to keep everyone cool and comfortable.

You’ve probably heard the old adage, “The only thing certain in life is death and taxes.” In as much as that may be true, professional air conditioning contractors will add this little nugget: if you live in the Sunshine State, your air conditioning system will be heavily taxed over the years, and unfortunately, it can’t possibly last forever, especially if it not properly maintained.

According to the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, & Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), the following are residential air conditioning life expectancy projections:

• Window Air Conditioners 10 years
• Central Air Conditioners 15-20 years
• Heat Pumps 15-16 years
• Furnaces 15-20 years
• Thermostats 35 years

Of course, technology or other circumstances may dictate that you replace any one of these components before these time-frames play-out. For example, thermostats may last for 35 years, but it may behoove you to invest in a more advanced, programmable model that you can conveniently control from your Smartphone or tablet, no matter where you are!

Let’s face it. Nothing lasts forever. When living in our little slice of paradise with the hot tropical climate, strive to keep your air conditioning system professionally maintained and properly tuned-up by the experts at One Hour Air Conditioning and Heating for optimum performance and longevity. When your air conditioning life expectancy reaches its limit, One Hour Air is simply a phone call away! 727.264.5456

How to Properly Awaken Your A/C to Avoid Air Conditioning Repairs in New Port Richey

Congratulations! You survived another Florida winter. It wasn’t really that tough, now was it? You probably pulled out your coats and sweaters to bundle up a time or two, and the air conditioner received a well-deserved hiatus while the temps were cooler.

Now that spring breaks are upon us and glorious warmth has returned to the forecast, there are a few things you should do prior to putting the air conditioner back to work. By completing a short checklist, you should have no worries about potential  air conditioning repairs in New Port Richey.

iStock_000043176542_LargeVisually check your thermostat. If it is an older mercury model, you might consider an upgrade to a programmable thermostat for the sake of convenience and energy efficiency. Also, if your thermostat uses batteries, now is great time to change them.

Check your Ductwork & Vents. Make sure you are not losing precious cool air due to leaky ductwork. Always keep floor and wall vents clear of furniture, drapes and other obstructions.

Change your air filter. Manufacturers generally suggest you change your air filters each month, or at the very least, every three months. It is important to keep air pathways as clean and unobstructed as possible for optimum efficiency.

Check the drain pan and lines. Hopefully, this was done before the air conditioner was shut off for the season. If not, take time to make sure the drain pan is not clogged, and the drain lines are clear.

Inspect the outdoor condenser. Make sure there are no leaves, sand or debris blocking the vents or the fan.

Check refrigerant lines. The lines should not be compromised in any way, they should be well-insulated and they should be leak-free.

Dehumidifying Guards Against Air Conditioning Repairs in Trinity

In Florida, we have some of the most beautiful weather in the world, but we also have some of the worst humidity. The upside to the shoulder months of spring and fall are the lovely temperatures that prompt the opening of windows and provide down time for your air conditioner. However, the downside to these transitional seasons is the higher level of humidity that comes with them.

Now that spring is upon us, take some time to learn more about dehumidification to help guard against air conditioning repairs in Trinity.

Humidity is the measurable moisture level of the air. It is that moisture that makes the air feel thick and sticky and it is the culprit of many a bad hair day. The moisture thickness in the air makes it more difficult to breathe and can greatly increase levels of mold and other microorganisms circulating throughout your home and your air conditioning system.

Some humidity is removed from the air when the air conditioner is operating. Yet, thanks to the comfortable temps of the season, the a/c will not run as long or as often as it does during the summer months. This is great for your energy bill, but challenging due to the higher humidity that remains in the air, as well as the airborne pollutants.

A whole-home dehumidification system may be the answer to keeping your home comfortable year-round, and keep your air conditioner running smoothly. Dehumidifiers operate separately from the air conditioning system to draw moisture out of the air, decreasing the stickiness, and keeping the indoor climate at the precise level of comfort, and the air quality optimum for you and your family.Water stains on the roof of a house.

A dehumidifier is a wise investment to reduce molds, fungi, and allergens, as well as to provide an element of protection for your floors, walls, and furniture from damage that can occur due to higher levels of moisture in the air.

For more details about dehumidification systems best-suited for your home, contact Kim O’Kelley at One Hour Air Conditioning and Heating and schedule an in-home consultation: 727-493-0057.

UV Lighting Takes Spring Cleaning to the Next Level

Like the Rays in Spring Training, the Florida allergy season is in full swing, and relative symptoms are cropping up across Tampa Bay. With pollen counts in the moderately-high and high categories, it is extremely important that allergy sufferers take extra precautions to breathe easier.

Today’s nasty allergens include nettles, juniper and oak. This may stay consistent tomorrow, but it may also change to a different pollen or allergen, depending on the weather and the region. Pollen, mold spores, yeast, fungus and other micro-organisms gather on air conditioning system coils and thrive in the warm, dark, moist environment. onehouroxyquantuled (1)

As the air conditioner functions, the pollinated air passes through the system and the air filter, and is circulated through your home’s ductwork and vents for the inhabitants to breathe. The filter is in place to capture much of the nasty stuff in the air. However, UV lighting can make a world of difference in reducing and eliminating allergens, especially if you suffer from respiratory conditions.

Pollen and other micro-organisms result in lower air quality within your home, and they can and will exacerbate respiratory conditions such as allergies, rhinitis, and asthma. UV lighting is proven effective at reducing and eliminating bacteria, molds, fungus, and allergens that can irritate respiratory passages and cause your family and pets to suffer from chronic coughing and sneezing.

Just in time for spring cleaning, One Hour Air Conditioning and Heating offers UV lighting for the air conditioner to clean the air and further improve the overall air quality in your home. For more information about the benefits of inexpensive UV Lighting, or to schedule an appointment to have a UV light installed, contact Kim O’Kelley at One Hour Air today: 727-493-0057.

Thermostat Issue Averts Air Conditioning Repairs in Land O Lakes

When she awakened and emerged from her cozy bed, she pulled on her robe and headed to the front door to let the dogs out as part of her morning routine. What was not usual was the temperature of her home. The morning air felt cool on her face, and her home was warm and muggy!

The first thing she did was go to the thermostat. The LED screen was totally blank. Had the thermostat reached the end of its life, or was she in need of air conditioning repairs in Land O Lakes?Thermostat Woes

Those questions were answered when her husband got up for work. His first move was to check the batteries in the thermostat. Duh!  The woman had no recollection of ever having had to change the batteries in the thermostat. Who knew? As soon as the batteries were changed, the default settings returned to the LED screen and the air conditioner sprung to life right on cue.

This isn’t always the case, but it is worth knowing. Thermostats have changed from the old, mercury “dial” thermostats that were often inaccurate and hard to regulate, to new large-screen, LED displays that sometimes require batteries to keep them operating, but not always. In fact, many people are investing in WiFi thermostats which can be controlled directly from tablets or smartphones.

You might not need air conditioning repairs in Land O Lakes if it is possible there is an issue with your thermostat. To learn more about upgrading your thermostat to one of the more sophisticated models on the market, including WiFi and programmable products, call the professionals at One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating today. If for any reason you do require air conditioning repairs in Land O Lakes, remember they are, “Always on Time, or You Don’t Pay a Dime!” 727-493-0057.

Changing Air Filters Hinders Air Conditioning Repairs in Trinity

Considering the cooler temperatures we Floridians have experienced over the last few weeks, chances are your doors and windows have been tightly shut to keep your home warmer and more comfortable.

That being said, it is even more important that you check and change the air filter in your air conditioning system to make sure the air circulating throughout your sealed home, the air you and your family are breathing, is as pollutant-free as possible.

Changing your air filter is one step toward cleaning the air, as well as hindering the need for air conditioning repairs in Trinity.

Furnace Filter clogged With DustWhen the filter in your air handler is clogged, the air conditioner has to work harder to force the air through, which can spread dust and other nasty particulates into the air. Not only is this unhealthy for the inhabitants, this can cause serious problems with the mechanics of the operating system.

If you know nothing about the air filter necessary for your air conditioning system or how to change it, consult your owner’s manual for specifications, or be bold and inspect what is currently in place in your air handler.

Filters range in price, based on the level of filtration you select for your home and the type you require. Directional air flow arrows are imprinted on the sides of air filters to be used as placement guides. Simply remove the used filter and replace with the new one, making sure that the arrows point in the direction the air flows.

One Hour Air Conditioning and Heating invites you to consider joining their Filter Club. As a member, you will regularly receive the appropriate filters for your air conditioner and scheduled reminders for when it’s time to switch them out, as one step to preventing air conditioning repairs in Trinity.
