Damages, Losses and Health Dangers

In hot weather the heat and humidity can cause food in your cabinets to spoil, moisture and heat can damage your home, it makes you uncomfortable and miserable, and worst of all it can cause illness. If the pollen count is high outside and your windows are open you are exposed to that 24 hours a day without a break and can experience allergic reactions you aren’t even aware are allergic reactions. Some people may even be in serious danger from hot and humid weather. In the winter freezing nights come by surprise and can damage your pipes and plants and certainly can be bad for your families health. Let’s get you comfortable fast and with as little cost as possible.

Guaranteed Lowest Rates

We guarantee the lowest parts and labor rates for any air conditioner repair compared to other licensed, bonded, and insured HVAC companies in Gainesville FL. We start with an extremely low $89 service call that covers the first 30 minutes of diagnostics and no part repairs. Very often that’s all that is needed. If more parts and labor are required we have low flat rates that apply to everyone. Some companies charge as much as they think they can get depending on how much money it looks like you have or how desperate or inexperienced you look. John Buckhalter founded Buckhalter Heating & Air Conditioning with the commitment to charge all customers the same low rates, the lowest rates in town.

How to Avoid Breakdowns

  1. Changing your air filters regularly and regular preventative maintenance can prevent most breakdowns and extend the life of your system. A dirty filter causes restrict air flow which can cause several problems. First of all in many air conditioning systems once the filter is clogged the air will manage to get around the filter and that unfiltered air will get dust accumulation on coils, fans, and duct-work. Dust on the filter or coils restricts air flow which causes fans and compressors to work harder leading to premature failure and expensive replacement costs. Even less expensive parts such as contacts can fail faster from overuse. But the most common result is a frozen system. When air isn’t flowing properly ice can build up in several places and completely stop the air flow. Then you have to leave the system off several hours until the ice melts and clean up all the water from the melting so it doesn’t damage your home.
  2. Another cause of icing up is low refrigerant. Low refrigerant can also cause the system to run harder and parts to break faster. This is easily avoided by semi-annual preventative maintenance.
  3. In Gainesville FL and Alachua County we have a lot of insects and they get into air conditioning parts build nests and cause them to fail. This is prevented most of time by preventative maintenance.
  4. When the air is pleasant at night and you turn off your air conditioning and open the windows and then close the windows and turn on the air conditioning during the day your system has to remove all that humidity collected overnight day after day. This is a lot of extra expense and extra work that leads to more part failures. It is recommended to leave your system on to keep the humidity levels low. It can also damage your house to have the humidity changing every day inside. The same thing happens if in winter you open windows during the day and turn on the heat at night.
  5. Like a car, a heating and cooling system is a high-tech machine, capable of giving you many years of reliable service, providing you take care of its maintenance needs in a timely fashion. In the long run, it is typically found that heating and cooling systems that don’t receive regular preventative maintenance often cost home and business owners far more via higher utility costs and crisis repairs.

While you’re waiting

Maybe your air conditioning system isn’t broken. Maybe it’s something simple you can remedy. Check to see if your thermostat needs new batteries, or any of your air conditioning circuit breakers are tripped. Or maybe your air filter is clogged. Remember to call and cancel your service call if you correct the problem.
