September 10th, 2018

waterWhy is it that Florida is such a popular vacation spot? Why is it that so many people decide to spend their golden years down here? It’s because of the weather and the beaches, mostly.

Why Does My AC Turn Off So Quickly?

July 30th, 2018

angry-manThe central air conditioner is a major upgrade from the noisy, ineffective, and inefficient air conditioning systems that so many of us have used in the past—provided that it is working properly. Unfortunately, a lot of homeowners seem to think that, just because their air conditioners are functioning, they are functioning properly. This is not necessarily the case, and that type of thinking can land you in some hot water.
