Can a dirty filter cause the AC not to work?

A dirty air filter can cause your AC to not work properly. Clogged air filters can cause your unit to: 

  • Run without cooling - A clogged filter restricts airflow to your unit, essentially blocking outgoing humid air from flowing. Your unit will try to compensate by running more often but the air won’t feel as cool.
  • Freeze up - A dirty air filter restricts the flow of cold air from the unit, causing it to build up in the AC and eventually freeze the coils.
  • Lose efficiency - Units that are not functioning properly end up costing you money in added energy costs while also keeping your house at an uncomfortable temperature. 

To learn more, call Total Air at 727-822-7700. One of our expert team members can help answer any question you may have on filters and air conditioning maintenance. We also offer an AC maintenance service to clean and check your system, helping it run smoothly and efficiently all year long.

How do I purify the air in my house from dust?

You can use your HVAC to purify the air in your house from dust, leading to a healthier and cleaner environment, in the following ways: 

  • Increase filter’s MERV rating - Changing your air filter regularly is essential, but what can help even more is to improve the type of filter you install. All filters are given a MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating, with the higher the rating, the smaller the particles it will prevent from passing through the filter. With a higher MERV filter, you will have less dust in your home. 
  • Use your HVAC fan after cleaning - When you dust, particles are scattered into the air and can travel through your home, settling somewhere else. If you switch your system to ON instead of AUTO after dusting or vacuuming, the HVAC will help remove these scattered dust particles. Don’t forget to switch it back to AUTO after some time passes.

To learn more or if you have questions, call Total Air at 727-822-7700. We have been providing heating and cooling services to the St. Petersburg area since 2003 and have years of experience repairing and maintaining HVACs. Call today!

What causes your air conditioner to stop working?

There are a number of reasons why an air conditioner will stop working. The most common reasons include:

  • Faulty circuit breaker or fuse.
  • Refrigerant leak.
  • Frozen coil.
  • Damaged fan blades, compressor, electrical connections and contacts.
  • Faulty thermostat.

If your air conditioner has stopped working, call Total Air at 727-822-7700 for air conditioner repair service. We provide 24-hour, 7-day-a-week emergency service. Our certified technicians are held to the highest standards of courtesy and professionalism. They are licensed and certified as well as trained on the latest innovations in HVAC technology. If your air is out, don’t hesitate to call.

Horrible experience, misdiagnosed the problem, terrible attitude, disrespectful




Review of Total Air, Inc.

Your technician was more concerned with selling a new unit, versus fixing my problem, after 5 minutes of checking compressor, air handler, he concluded because the unit is a 2007 it needed 4000.00 in repairs, in fact the only problem was a broken wire that controls the unit to switch from heat to cool, 0 dollar repair. His attitude and the way he talks to people needs serious adjustment, frankly for someone to come to my house,use profanity, and a genuine disconcern about my property, he's lucky I paid at all, and making a comment about if my Corvette has maintenance dates I would take care of that, which has nothing to do with why I called Total Air, I feel the 15 minutes he was here was a waste of my time and money. Also stating that it's owner's neglect, because I didn't follow through on by annual service, this guy never needs to come to anyone's home

Upon arrival customer showed me location of water spots on ceiling in the kitchen, the return grill is not far from this location. Found air handler inside attic, the primary drain line 3/4 pvc coming out of the unit underneath emergency pan and outside the home has sections of insulation missing and also a few places not glued. I cannot physically see exactly inside the attic where the water would be leaking down on to ceiling. I’m going to quote insulating approx 24 ft of 3/4 pvc drain line and also quote insulating 3/4 copper suction line just in case that is sweating as well. See photos on ST. I did clear the drain line w shop vac and cleaner just to be safe, we were here in June to perform a tune up. Have office pt together estimate.
