    Floridians, let's get outside!

    There seems to be a misconception about Florida… that we always have beautiful weather and live outdoors year-round. Sure, we don’t shovel snow or have grey days for weeks on end, but we certainly do our fair share of hiding from the weather. For many of us, this means that our gorgeous sunny days are observed from inside our air-conditioned homes, as we peek through our blackout curtains and switch our ceiling fans to high, attempting to stay cool without breaking the bank.

    Is it too late for a summer A/C tune-up?

    There’s a good chance you planned to call someone out to service your A/C unit before the summer months. But maybe you never got around to it. You got busy, money got tight, life got crazy.

Thankfully the impacts were minor, but we all know that the next “big one” is always on the horizon and we need to be ready. Beyond the life-threatening aspects of summer storms, it’s the inconveniences that often hit us the hardest. And nothing is more inconvenient than losing power for an extended period of time. (Is anyone having Irma flashbacks?) So let’s talk about how we can prepare now for a power outage, so we don’t get ....

    Is the pollen driving you crazy too?

    If you've moved to Florida from the north, you may regret leaving your snow shovel behind... not for the snow, but for the pollen!

    Squeaks, whistling, and grinding… what your heat pump is trying to tell you
