Air Conditioning FAQ

Do you have a question about your AC system? Chances are someone has had the same question. View our frequently asked questions for air conditioners down below. If you don’t see your question in this section, please give us a call 24/7 at (727) 273-7810

How Often Should I Change My Air Filters?

At FAST of Florida, we think you should change out air filters every 30-90 days, depending on how many people and pets may be in the home. We advise checking and changing air filters in high-use seasons even more often.

Should I Get My Air Ducts Cleaned?

Allergies and asthma affect more than 41 million Americans. If you’re part of this group, we suggest you get an appointment to clean your air ducts. Doing so can benefit your health and overall breathing and give you a more efficient air conditioning system.

What Size Heating/Cooling System Do I Need?

A technical analysis of your home’s building envelope is required to determine the proper size air conditioning system. A too-large system may make your home uncomfortable; in some cases, it might cause moisture issues. On the other side, having a too-small system for your house will not be efficient enough to fill your home. Call FAST of Florida now to schedule a free in-home estimate to determine the proper size system for your home.

What’s the Best Temperature to Set My Thermostat?

Of course, the answer to this question depends on the time of the year and your comfort levels. But we have suggestions for the cold and warmer seasons. In winter months, the average temperature setting is 78°-80°. In summer, 70°-72° is around the average setting. Remember, when leaving your home for work or several hours, don’t try to apply very drastic temperature changes. Do not set your temperature back any more than 5° since this will cause standard systems to work harder to achieve the desired temperature setting.

How Often Should I Get Maintenance Done for My AC System?

You should have maintenance done on your air conditioning system twice a year. This ensures maximum efficiency and enables us to potentially catch possible problems that might plague you in the near future. Our Comfort Club Agreement plan is designed to help keep your air conditioning system running at its peak efficiency for the whole year.
