Manufacturers recommend servicing your air conditioner a minimum of 2 times a year to ensure peak performance and efficiency.
This is not an easy question to answer; here are some things to consider when making your decision:
- The age and condition of the equipment. If it’s older than 10 years, it is most likely not very efficient anymore.
- Is your current system keeping you comfortable when summer arrives?
- How much will the repair cost? How many more repairs will you need in the future? Is keeping your older system running worth the time and money? In Florida, the life span of an air conditioner is 10-12 years. After that time period passes, the efficiency is so low that it can actually cost you more in your monthly electric bill than simply purchasing a new efficient unit.
In general, Shoreline Air Conditioning recommends inspecting your filter(s) regularly and replacing your standard or washable filters monthly. Pleated filters are rated for 90 days but that does not mean they will last that long. This simple step can reduce the likelihood of a system breakdown.
Yes, there are several things you can do to reduce monthly expenses related to air conditioning.
- Change your filter(s) regularly. An unclean filter makes your system work harder.
- Use a programmable thermostat and set it between 78-80 degrees when you are not home. For example, setting your house thermostat from 73 to 76 degrees can save you as much as 15% on your monthly electricity costs.
- Keeping the fan set to “Auto” can also save up to $25 per month.
- Check for low batteries in the thermostat
- Check all breakers to make sure they are not tripped and set to the on position
- Check for a dirty filter
- Make note of any noises or smells
No. Air conditioners are sized to be a perfect match for your home. Selecting too large of a unit would cause your system to short cycle. Air conditioners are designed to run for certain amounts of time so that they can remove the humidity for space.
Programmable thermostats are digital, more precise and effective than mercury thermostats. Plus, they allow you to automatically regulate the temperature in your house at various points of the day without ever moving the thermostat! Now with WiFi thermostats, you can control the temperature in your house from your phone or computer.
If your lights are dimming when your air conditioning system comes on, it can be a sign of a weak compressor, the capacitor going out, or your unit may be in need of a start capacitor to help your compressor to start.
An honest company with great service at a fair price. I've used them three times with quick service and quality work. I recommend Shoreline AC to everyone.
10/10. Neighbors of ours recommended Kevin when we had a nasty condensate line clog over the summer. He came out same-day. diagnosed the issue immediately, and had our AC up and running properly within the hour. I highly recommend Shoreline Air Conditioning.
Thank You!!! The best Air Conditioning Company!
I’ve used Shoreline twice. The service is excellent & very fairly priced. Both times I had a problem with my older air handler & Kevin knew exactly what was wrong & fixed it in 30-40 minutes. He has even come over on a Sunday morning. He’s honest & responsive. I can’t say enough nice things about this company. I wish others would learn from them!
We have used Kevin with Shoreline since he started in the A/C business, Kevin does the job right the first time, we set up a regular maintenance schedule with him and he is always on time.
Fantastic, trustworthy, and Fast!! My grandmother had a broken A/C unit in her 2nd floor condo and hired another company to go out and give her a quote. They told her that her unit needed to be trashed as it was unfixable and she had to purchase a new unit from them at $3800. We were very concerned with this quote, and called Kevin from Shoreline Air Conditioning. He responded right away and added her to the schedule the very next day!! He went to her home and fixed her right up for less than 13% of what the other company was going to rip my grandmother off for! Thank you so much Kevin & Shoreline Air Conditioning!! Today you are a hero in an A/C guy’s clothing!
l rent my house and my A/C was on the fritz and the house was heating up quickly. I googled and saw they were local. Very personable on the phone and quick response. My tech was honest and fast- and the owner. Luckily the problem was an inquisitive lizard... Who wasn't so lucky. Kevin didn't try to upsell- He fixed it- quickly. Fair and did I say HONEST?! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Like now. Call them. Really. You must be Hot if you're looking for Awesome AC people on GOOGLE.
The price was as stated to replace both handler and compressor, they showed up on time and completed the same day.
Outstanding company, outstanding service! Shoreline Air Conditioning has kept our family cool ❄️ since we moved in two years ago. They just installed a new 3 ton, 16 seer unit at my house. What a great job! I love Kevin and his crew! You will not be disappointed, give them a call! They’ll meet and exceed all your needs!
Can't say enough. Had an issue with my AC this week. Worse time to be without AC, but Kevin and his employees worked very hard to get it up and running. I feel he is reliable and very honest. I have had some unfortunate problems in the past with other companies. Glad I found someone I can count on. Very important. Thank you.
Shoreline Air Conditioning - professional, prompt and courteous. I was very happy with the services I received.
Shoreline Air Conditioning is one of the most honest, fair and reliable companies that I have ever dealt with in South Florida. Kevin and his crew are true professionals. I've recommended them to others and always get great feedback. Thanks for getting me back up and running in such a short time!
Chris and Kevin were both great. It took a little while to figure out what was wrong with the compressor, because it seemed like every time they came out (they made 4 calls to my house over 2 days), the AC was working. I have an old system and wasn't sure it was worth the money to repair it. I was somewhat resigned to having to purchase a whole new system. But Kevin figured it out and all seems well now. Persistence pays. Thank you Shoreline AC.
This company is awesome, and they do a fantastic job. Kevin and his team go above and beyond. Honest and dependable. They were recommended to me by a neighbor. Many of our neighbors use them. I've recommended them to a few friends and family as well.
Our previous A/C contractor has recommended that due to the age of our outside unit that the system in our condo be replaced. Th unit was 9 years old. I obtained a quote that was downright outrageous. My general contractor recommended Shoreline. Since we were only in town for a few days, Kevin came by ASAP and provided a quote that afternoon. The quote was very reasonable. They installed the unit the next day. I have experience in the building trades and watched the installation. The guys were very professional. They protected the adjacent surfaces and floors. The new system was up and running in a few hours. Kevin even knocked off the cost of a new T-stat since I wanted to keep my old T-stat since it was connected to the security system. I highly recommend Shoreline.
Kevin and his team installed 3 ductless AC units for us! They are fantastic. I have no complaints! Excellent customer service, on time, finished when promised, and cleaned up any mess in the house and the yard! Highly recommend.
We found Kevin with Shoreline AC very customer focused. He was recommended by two friends who had got a new ac install. Their pricing is fair and very competitive. They did a.great job installing the ac and it's working great. I highly recommend Shoreline.
I was very happy with my service. My air conditioning broke and I had out of town guest coming to stay with me. Kevin was able to provide me with a quote the same day and schedule me efficiently. It was the smoothest service appointment that I have ever had. Thanks Kevin!
This AC business is amazing! Not only do they respond to work calls at 8pm on a Saturday but they are coming out the next day! That’s a Sunday just Incase your wondering. I’m a business owner of a window cleaning company and being punctual, picking up phone calls is paramount to any business. Thank you Shoreline AC!!!
Whenever called the response is prompt. Chris is polite and professional. He answers all my questions. It is a pleasure doing business with Shoreline.
Walter from Shoreline AC was great. He was ontime, very professional, and he identified a part that needed replaced. Our previous service provider will never as thorough. Thanks
Kevin was very professional, knowledgeable, showed empathy, and the company communicated with me in a way that was user friendly. I have had many companies come out to look at my unit and nobody could resolve the issue, not only did they fix the issue but explained what was wrong with my unit. I would recommend Kevin and the company to anyone looking for a professional and reliable ac repair company. - Gloria (Lake Worth, FL)
Kevin immediately took my call and graciously fit me into his schedule. I have no idea of the inconvenience I may have caused him, because he treated me as if I had had a scheduled appointment and that it was no bother for him to rearrange his schedule to accommodate me at the last minute, whatsoever. Kevin was a pleasure to interact with, extremely professional, and worked the entire time he was here. He went above and beyond to explain what needed to be done, everything that he had done, and what I'll be facing in the future. He could have taken advantage of my ignorance and desperation; but instead, rather than insist that I purchase a new air conditioning unit or charge me for a new thermostat, he added Freon and fixed my current thermostat, and ensured that everything was in working condition before leaving. He answered all of my questions patiently, professionally, and so that I understood. I would (and already have) HIGHLY recommend Kevin, and Shoreline Air Conditioning, to anyone looking for an honest, competent, pleasant professional, who goes out of his way to minimize the cost to his customers. Thank you again Kevin! It's so rare to find someone of your caliber, excellence, honesty, integrity, and professionalism in this line of business (or in any business for that matter!). You have a life long customer!
Outstanding service. This is the second time Kevin and his staff have installed a new AC for us. Professional, courteous and reasonable price. Thanks
Shoreline emoloyees were courteous and very professional. The removal and replacement of A/C was done swiftly and they cleaned after themselves. Definitely highly recommend shoreline for all your A/C needs!!!!
I had a problem with the AC at a rental property my wife and I own, and when the tenant called on Sunday to say the AC wasn't cooling properly (again), I immediately called the 2 previous companies we had used previously. Hoping to get someone out to address the problem ASAP, I left messages requesting a service call shortly after the tenant call that Sunday morning. With no call back from either company by that afternoon, I went online and looked for reputable AC company based upon POSITIVE Google reviews. After looking for highly rated companies (4.8 - 5.0 stars), it was clear that Shoreline not only was a 5 Star company, but all of the reviews were believable and consistent in their descriptions regarding the the quality and value of Shoreline's work and the professionalism, responsiveness and timeliness of their service. Within 10 minutes of my leaving a message Sunday afternoon, Kevin called me back and agreed to meet me at the property the next day at the time the tenant said would be most convenient (anytime after 4pm). Giving me a 'heads-up' courtesy call that he was on his way at 3:40pm, Kevin arrived (exactly) at 4pm. After thoroughly examining the AC components, both outside (on the roof) and inside in the attic, Kevin took the time to explain the problem (and lack thereof) with the system with myself and my tenant, and made a number of reasonable and logical suggestions to resolve the cooling issue and answer the questions that the tenant had. Kevin and Shoreline AC are now my #1 go to AC service company for me and the first I will recommend whenever anyone I know has an AC problem. Thank you Shoreline, and thank you Kevin!
Kevin is the best! He is available morning, noon, and night and cares about the customer's issues. I have never dealt with such a wonderful AC company and am so blessed to have been referred to him! If you need a great AC guy, Kevin is the person you would want!
After receiving my first quote from another company I called Shoreline AC/Kevin based upon so many positive reviews on the Nextdoor app. Kevin was responsive and thorough in his estimate and listening to my needs. His quote was reasonable and I just sensed he would do a great job. He made some great suggestions and as of today I could not be happier. For the first time in 17 years of living in this house I have cooling that is consistent throughout my house and throughout the day. It made a HUGE difference. Keven and his staff were great. They worked so hard and did not stop until all was completed. This is my AC company from this point forward!

After thoroughly examining the AC components, both outside (on the roof) and inside in the attic, Kevin took the time to explain that there wasn't a problem with the system, but rather the tenant's expectation of cooling the house to 65 degrees when the outside heat index was almost 105 degrees. Given an inside room temperature of 78 degrees, he said the AC unit was doing well considering the excessively high outdoor heat. He also took time to answer the tenant's questions and explain that not only was the AC unit was working properly, he made a number of reasonable and logical suggestions including advising the tenant to keep the blinds and curtains closed (which they were not) during the day to reduce the effect of outside heating from the mid-day and afternoon sun allowing the AC to cool with less stress and more efficiently. Kevin and Shoreline AC are now my #1 go to AC service company for me and the first I will recommend whenever anyone I know has an AC problem. Thank you Shoreline, and thank you Kevin!
We have used Kevin with Shoreline since he started in the A/C business, Kevin does the job right the first time, we set up a regular maintenance schedule with him and he is always on time. And with all this craziness going on he had is mask and gloves, and took every precaution to be safe.
