Another full day in my home area of central Florida. And, it was a VERY wet day.

Nothing like trying to keep tools dry, prevent the mixture of water and electrical, and keep your phone dry all at the same time.

Started off the day in Riverview, FL for HVACi, then onto Auburndale for a second HVACi inspection, and finally to Davenport for a Strikecheck inspection.

If you are having renovations done on a house I would recommend that you make sure you have good filters in your air conditioning system, or even better yet, shut it off.

The dust from the tile (breaking up the old, installing the new, the cement, and the grouting process) can build up on the blower wheel and can cut your airflow close to 75% once it builds up 1/2 an inch. This will cause freeze ups, higher electrical bills, and problems controlling humidity.

Your air conditioning system requires a certain amount of air per ton of cooling. The magic number is 400 CFM (400 Cubic Feet Per Minute). Your blower wheel is what provides this air flow.
