Service Areas for Jacksonville’s Southside

Southside, or South Jacksonville, is one of the largest sub-sections of Duval County, FL. Originally the name “South Jacksonville” applied to the area of town that lies directly to the south of Downtown across the St. Johns River, a neighborhood most often called San Marco. However, the term “Southside” is now used to identify a much larger and rapidly growing business and suburban sector that is defined as an area to the east and south of the St. Johns River, north of Baymeadows, inland from the Intracoastal Waterway, and south of Arlington. This is literally the central-most area of urban Jacksonville with convenient commuting, shopping and recreation.

Frequently Asked Questions

All of our technicians are N.A.T.E Certified and have completed a Four-Year Apprentice Program at Northeast Florida Builders Association’s as Licensed Journeymen. In addition, all of our service technicians are kept current on the latest technology and methods of installation and repair.

Do you offer discounts for annual system maintenance?

When you setup a Maintenance Plan, we provide two 21-point precision tune-ups (twice a year) that allow our technician to identify potential problems before they turn into costly repairs. 

What’s wrong if my system keeps coming on and shutting off?

If your system is running, turning off and then turning on every few minutes, this is called short cycling. Short cycling can cost you big money in both higher energy bills and costly system repairs. There are several possible causes including: a dirty air filter, a refrigerant leak somewhere in the system, a bad thermostat or dirty condenser coils. It is imperative to have a professional take a look at your AC as soon as possible.

Should I worry about dirty coils?

Dirty evaporator or condenser coils will reduce your system’s ability to cool properly. It can also cause your system to run longer which increases your monthly energy costs and accelerates mechanical wear and tear. Clean blower components provide consistent airflow for improved comfort levels. 

What are the advantages of installing a new unit?

Improved compressor technology, fan-blade shape, timers, programmable thermostats and Energy Star-rated models have helped make heating and cooling systems perform better, last longer and resist malfunctions. As an added value, newer AC systems consume less energy.
