Wesley Chapel Air Conditioning Repair & Service

Wesley Chapel is a census-designated place in Southeastern Pasco County, Florida. The community stretches from County Line Road to the area surrounding State Road 54, and Interstate 75 passes through its center. Its easy Interstate access makes it a highly desired bedroom community for commuters working in the Tampa area.

History

Wesley Chapel was originally settled by the Boyette and Gillette families in the 1840s. Early names for the area included Gatorville, Godwin, and Double Branch. It was finally named Wesley Chapel for the Methodist chapel built on the corner of State Road 54 and Boyette Road. John Wesley was the founder of the Methodist Church.

The area remained a small community until the arrival of Interstate 75 in the late 1960s. When Saddlebrook Resort opened in 1979, growth began accelerating. Over the last 15 years, Tampa residents looking to escape the increasing urbanization of the city moved to Wesley Chapel seeking a more small-town feel. Today, the area is made up of large subdivisions and several major strip malls.

Wesley Chapel Air Conditioning Repair, Maintenance, and Installation

The majority of Wesley Chapel homes are heated and cooled by heat pumps. These are the combined heating and cooling systems that many homeowners refer to as central air conditioning. Because of Central Florida’s mild winters, homeowners are able to cut costs by not installing a separate heating system. Even though electric heat is generally more expensive than gas or oil heat, the combined installation and operating costs are lower with a heat pump due to the area’s light heating needs.

At United Air Conditioning, we stock a full range of Trane heat pumps, air conditioners, and furnaces. Instead of taking a one-size-fits-all approach, we will work with you to come up with the heating and cooling solution that works best for your home. To keep your current system running properly, we also offer routine maintenance plans as well as same-day emergency service. Contact us to learn more about how we can help improve your comfort.
