Air Conditioning Ft Myers | A/C Slideshow

As an air conditioning contractor in Ft Myers, Florida over the course of a year there are many opportunities to take some good pictures. Too often however, in the course of our day to day work we miss great pictures due to time constraints, inclement weather, or simply leaving the camera in the truck. That being said … we did manage to get some decent shots in 2011, which I’d like to share. Hopefully with a little luck and a little more discipline and attentiveness the next year will present an equal number of opportunities and this time we won’t miss quite as many.

Lower Air Conditioning Cost In Ft Myers | Check Your Duct Work

Air Conditioning Service Ft Myers

Your Ducts Moves And Insulates

The Air That Cools Your Home …

Any Leakage Is Significant!

In houses with forced-air heating and cooling systems, ducts are used to distribute conditioned air throughout the house. In a typical house, however, about 20 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. The result is higher utility bills and difficulty keeping the house comfortable, no matter how the thermostat is set.

How do you know that your home has poorly performing ducts?

  • you have high summer and winter utility bills;
  • you have rooms that are difficult to heat and cool;
  • you have stuffy rooms that never seem to feel comfortable;
  • your ducts are located in an attic, crawlspace, or the garage;
  • you find tangled or kinked flexible ducts in your system.

Because ducts are often concealed in walls, ceiling, attics, and basements, repairing them can be difficult. But there are things that you can do to improve duct performance in your house.

Your A/C Contractor Should Check Your Duct Work

During Your Annual Inspection!

Some homeowners choose to take on duct sealing as a do-it-yourself project. Start by sealing air leaks using mastic sealant and/or metal tape and insulating all the ducts that you can access (such as those in attics, crawlspaces, unfinished basements, and garages). Never use duct tape, as it is not long-lasting. Also, make sure that the connections at vents and registers are well-sealed where they meet the floors, walls, and ceiling. These are common locations to find leaks and disconnected ductwork.

 

Many homeowners choose to hire a professional air conditioning contractor for duct improvement projects. Most heating and cooling contractors also repair ductwork. Look for a contractor who will:

  • Inspect the whole duct system, including the attic, basement, and crawl space (if you have these).
  • Repair or replace damaged, disconnected, or undersized ducts and straighten out flexible ducts that are tangled or crushed.
  • Evaluate the system’s supply and return air balance. Many systems have air return ducts that are too small.
  • Seal leaks and connections with mastic, metal tape, or an aerosol-based sealant.
  • Seal gaps behind registers and grills where the duct meets the floor, wall, or ceiling.
  • Insulate ducts in unconditioned areas with insulation that carries an R-value of 6 or higher.
  • Include a new filter as part of any duct system improvement.
  • Use diagnostic tools to evaluate air flow after repairs are completed.
  • Ensure there is no back drafting of gas or oil-burning appliances, and conduct a combustion safety test after ducts are sealed.

Florida Air Conditioning Upgrade Rebates On Hold

A 17.5 million dollar rebate program that would have helped home owners in Ft Myers, and all across the state of Florida has been put on hold. Legislators are currently debating the value of the program and how to free the money up. Money has been made available by the Federal Government, but, it is tied to a “Solar Rebate” program. Some are now saying those who claimed the money could be used for A/C upgrades spoke too soon. The Florida air conditioning industry is extremely hopeful that the solar and A/C programs can be separated and the A/C portion of it can move forward. Florida has a lot to gain from the program …

  • Upgraded A/C units require less power from our power plants reducing demand from our limited resources.
  • Florida will generate sales tax revenue with every upgrade.
  • Counties will collect revenue from the permits generated by the program.
  • A/C contractors will have more work, which will create new jobs, or at least prevent the loss of existing ones.
  • Upgraded A/C units are, in the long run, better for the environment.

Hope fully legislators will see the value in this program and make it available to the public.  Many in the Ft Myers area, already struggling with the recession, would have a difficult time replacing their outdated A/C systems without it.  Feel free to post a comment and tell us how you feel about this important issue!
