Addressing Delays and Price Increases

Thursday, June 23rd, 2022

Supply chains are still struggling to reach their pre-pandemic state. This is continuing to translate into delays for certain materials and supplies. Because of this, we want to make sure our customers are informed that, while we continue to put forward our best efforts, getting commercial services and some residential services taken care of may involve a longer wait time than before.

Delays are also continuing to create increases in prices for different systems and materials which will likely include at least two more price increases before September arrives.

We at Douglas Heating & Air Conditioning want to make sure to help our customers know what to expect in terms of these continued delays and price increases.

We also believe in being proactive in handling these problems. If you are noticing problems with your commercial or residential systems, we encourage you not to wait to get them checked and serviced. The sooner you book appointments to address budding issues, the quicker and more affordable they are likely to be.

Reach out to book your appointment with Douglas Heating & Air Conditioning today.

Dealing With A Generator Shortage

Wednesday, November 18th, 2020

We all know that the weather around here can be unforgiving at times. If you are looking to install a generator in the near future to help you get through periods of rougher weather, you should know there may be a delay in getting this system to your home.

There is currently a problem with our ability to get generators from our supplier, the manufacturer Generac. Multiple factors have created a delay in the delivery of these systems. This shortage is expected to last until March 2021. We understand this is a bummer but we are grateful for your patience. We promise that we will fulfill generator installations as soon as possible we have the systems available.

Make Sure Your Home Is Ready For Hurricane Season

Its the season for tropical storms and hurricanes in the Florida area which means that there is every chance our region will get some rough weather too.

All the Benefits of a UV Air Purifier

Friday, March 20th, 2020

woman-blowing-noseIn light of current news, we wanted to take a moment to tell you all about the benefits of installing a UV air filter in your home, specifically Global Plasma Solutions (GPS) UV Air Filters. Using an ultraviolet light air filter is one of the best ways to improve your overall comfort, health, and well-being.

But, how exactly does this work? Well, UV light kills or neutralizes any airborne viruses or bacteria passing through your ducts. The UV rays damage the DNA of microbes that pass under it, preventing them from reproducing and causing infections. This helps to keep the air in your home healthier.

GPS UV Air Filters are installed directly into your ductwork and help to purify the air that cycles through your comfort systems, killing off things like viruses, bacteria, and all sorts of other yucky germs. Oh, and here’s an added bonus: the GPS 2400 removes odors as well!

When you pair a top-notch air filtration system with consistent healthy hygiene practices, like washing your hands, you’ll be much better off! Stay safe out there!

Schedule your indoor air quality services with the team at Douglas Cooling & Heating today. Your Experience is What Matters Most! 

There is much to consider regarding the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus) and its possible transmission in your home. While there are various and effective indoor air quality measures available to help protect your safety, including duct sanitization, ultraviolet (UV) germicidal light treatment, and HEPA air filters, they alone cannot protect from all forms of COVID-19 transmission. It is important to follow all official guidelines for preventing the spread of this virus.
