One Hour Air Conditioning and Heating can help. To be sure of trouble-free operation throughout that peak cooling or heating season, it s important to have your air conditioning system maintained by a licensed specialist every six months, said Chad Malo, operations service manager at One Hour s Niceville office, located at 321 Highway 85 North. When seeking such maintenance, or if you are planning to purchase a new system, said Malo, Choose a company you can trust to stand behind its products, and to install the right product to match the size and type of your home. In addition to regular maintenance, One Hour Air can also provide a quick response to air-conditioning emergencies, such as a sudden system failure in the middle of an August heat wave. One Hour service technicians can be at your home within an hour of your call, or at a time of your choosing, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with no extra fees for after-hours service calls. This spring, said Malo, One Hour is offering half-off pricing on duct cleaning for those customers who also purchase One Hour s AeroSeal duct sealinga service that can improve the efficiency of your system and the breathability of air throughout your home by removing dust, pollen, mold spores and germs from the air you breathe. This helps prevent indoor mold, musty odors and can help protect you and your family from allergies and seasonal colds. Since most duct work is out of sight, it is easy to overlook, but small duct leaks can lead to big leaks in your pocket when it comes to high utility bills. Such leaks force your system to work harder, making it difficult to heat or cool your home. The new AeroSeal technology seals your ductwork from the inside, ensuring that even the smallest leaks are detected and sealed, which keeps your system working at peak efficiency. One Hour employees are highly trained, experienced professionals, who look forward to making you a customer for life. One Hour is a locally owned and operated Niceville business, with a well-established reputation for care and consideration of its customers and their homes, and for supporting local schools, sports and events. One Hour Air Conditioning and Heating and Ben Franklin Plumbing are located at 319 and 321 Highway 85, Niceville. Call 389-4611 for your appointment today.
