We know, it’s the middle of January and you’re probably busy dealing with a faulty heater than you are with your air conditioner. However, we want to take this moment to talk about the benefits that you could receive from scheduling maintenance on your AC while you’re not using it.
It would be different if your air conditioner was surrounded by a few feet of ice and snow, but down here in Florida, it’s a different story. HVAC in Venice, FL can be easier to perform during the winter because we have such a mild wintertime climate. Your air conditioner has probably only experienced wind, rain, and some temperatures that never exceeded freezing.
So, receiving maintenance now means there’s plenty of space and time for a specialist to take an intricate look at your system, to inspect it for any problems that might become front and center this summer.

Indoor air quality is a harder subject to approach with homeowners than something like heating or air conditioning. With temperature control, more often than not you can feel the difference by way of your own comfort.

Likewise with a heater, if you’re freezing on a chilly day then you’ll know that heater service is something you’ll absolutely want.
However, with indoor air quality, homeowners can have poor air quality inside their homes and believe that it’s normal. We’ve stepped into plenty of homes that are full of dust, debris, and pet dander to the point of being a respiratory problem, but homeowners don’t often notice since we can get used to our poor air quality easily. So, as your resident specialist team for HVAC in Sarasota, FL we’re going to fill you in on a few ways you can watch for your lousy air quality.
