With every news story being about high inflation and trouble on the economic horizon, it can be easy to look for the cheapest AC work available in your area. For us down here in Orlando, investing in cheap AC service can feel like a no-brainer, but it’s really more complicated than that.

Cheaper AC repairs in Orlando, FL like aren’t usually very good.

Since your air conditioning matters more than it might for someone living up north, we recommend paying for services that are better, not cheaper.

Monday, August 8th, 2022

Air conditioning isn’t really a luxury anymore. But with how expensive some air conditioner models can be, they’re not really classified as a necessity either. They exist in the same place as cars do, being necessary for some people and luxuries for others.

It’s Time to Upgrade From a Window Unit

Monday, July 25th, 2022

Window unit air conditioners are probably the most common system we see used across the country. In the north they’re perfectly fine, since summertime isn’t very long or hot. A window unit to ensure everyone sleeps on a hot night is usually enough to make it through a summer heatwave.

However, where we live, it’s a lot harder to function in your day to day life without a central air conditioner or heat pump. Window units just don’t have the power or the capacity to be able to let you live your life in the space you need to. Especially for families that require a lot of space, where each kid or family member has their own room, you’ll quickly find that you need multiple window units.

Today, we’re going to make the case as to why your next AC installation in Orlando should be a central AC unit or a heat pump.

We want to remind people that there is a legitimate need for air conditioning in Orlando, FL, and depending on how you live your life, it might not be as expensive as you think.
