Winters in Florida aren’t like other parts of the country. Let’s face it, we’ve had New Year’s Days that have clocked in at 90° before. It’s almost laughable to even think about winter this early in the year. Still though, when temperatures do cool down, however briefly, you want a fully functioning heater doing its job well.
If you try to get by with a malfunctioning heater, you could find yourself with a plethora of repair needs, higher than necessary heating costs, and even a completely broken down furnace. For this reason, we can’t stress enough how important heating maintenance is, as this service allows our technicians to thoroughly inspect, clean, and adjust your system for optimal performance.
It’s not too late to schedule maintenance! Even with this service though, it pays to know what to look for in a malfunctioning heater—or in some cases, what to listen for. We’ve listed below 5 noises you never want your furnace to make (and if it does, please call our pros right away).

We get why you would ask this. After all, it’s not like we use our furnaces that much—we get a relatively small handful of solid weeks out the year where our temperatures drop low enough to necessitate their use. Therefore, why maintain them?
Well, first off, an ill-maintained furnace that’s not used very often is more likely to suffer from problems if not properly cared for.
When our technicians come to tune-up your heating system, we look at a number of factors—do you have any components that need adjusting? How clean is your system? Are there pending repair needs? We’ll adjust those parts that need it, do a thorough cleaning, and report any service needs to you so you can get them on your schedule ASAP.
How does this benefit your furnace? Read on!

Summer is “officially” over, but that doesn’t mean a lot for us here in Florida, as we contend with warmer temperatures throughout the next few months. How’s your air conditioner doing? Is it showing any signs that it might not make it through another year of service?
If it is, you may want to start considering an AC upgrade. The last thing you need is to be without your air conditioner any longer than you have to be in the middle of a hot day, but if you neglect signs of AC disrepair or an AC that might need to be replaced, this can very well happen.
We’ve shared some signs below that might indicate it’s time for you to upgrade your air conditioner!

It would be great if we had air conditioners that could self-diagnose themselves when something was wrong, and send us a notification about exactly what the problem is and how much it will cost to have a professional fix it.
But alas, this is not the case—at least, not yet. This may be a reality in the future, but in the meantime, we all have to rely on other methods for our air conditioners to send warning signs that something is amiss. Perhaps it’s a drop in cooling power or an unexpected increase in utility bills. It may even be that the circuit breakers for the indoor and outdoor units are constantly tripping.
One of the most common signs that something is wrong with an air conditioning system is strange, unfamiliar sounds. What qualifies? Truthfully, anything that’s outside of the normal hum of the fans and the occasional clicking as the system comes on and shuts down. So, what sounds are we talking about? Keep reading to find out!

It may seem strange to be talking about the installation of a new air conditioning system near the end of summer—but then again in Florida, it’s almost always summer! Plus, the end of summer is the most likely time for aging air conditioners to finally call it quits, as they’ve been under a lot of stress.
If you’ve also been on the market for a new heating system, you’d do well to consider what a heat pump system can offer. Keep reading to learn about how a heat pump works, what makes it unique compared to other types of cooling and heating systems, and the benefits that one of these systems can offer you if you have it installed this year.
