Truth be told, there isn’t that much difference between an air conditioning system and a GeoThermal pool heating system, and the differences that do exist are easy to transition from with our training. It usually takes us no more than two to three weeks of training before our new service technicians are out making their own service calls.

Money & Water Saving Tips

Water conservation is something that even Florida residents, who are surrounded by water, are looking for ways to attain. When you conserve water, the geothermal professionals from Symbiont Service explain, you are likely to save money as well. Water (and money) saving and conservation is important for the environmental and to decrease your utility bills. If you can attain water conservation and save money, it’s a win-win for your wallet and the environment.

Conserving water doesn’t have to be difficult nor does it require expensive equipment. Getting your family on board with water-wise behaviors, however, might be another matter!

  1. You could still find, and
  2. That the sales person who left the information with you is still available?

Let Us Help You Inspect Your Damaged Pool Heating Equipment

Contact Us

 

If your pool heating equipment was submerged at all during the recent storm, we recommend that you have it inspected by a licensed, qualified technician to ensure the equipment is safe. Our own licensed, qualified technician, Jimmy Dietrich, recently sat down to talk about what the inspection process looks like.

When Jimmy or a member of his team is dispatched, the first thing they do is remove the electric panels to inspect any areas where moisture or debris could have gotten in. If moisture or debris is found, he will remove the affected components and replace them right away. Then he will inspect any pumps or other controls that may have been exposed or affected.

“We can help fix your pool heating equipment, too.”

From a safety standpoint, checking the ground is very important. Jimmy is doing a great job teaching our team how to do this.

If you need your pool heating equipment inspected or you’d like to combine an inspection with your regular maintenance visit, give us a call or send us an email. We would love to help you out.

A Message Regarding Hurricane Preparation

Contact Us

 

The week before Hurricane Irma hit Florida, we sent out a message via email and social media. This message contained recommendations and information to help people prepare for the coming storm.

Unfortunately, we are not finished with hurricane season yet. This is why I want to share the information from that message with you all once more.

The equipment we install for pool heating includes hurricane tie-down straps, as per the Florida building code requirements.

Also, we recommend that you turn off all high voltage power sources to pool heaters and pumps at the circuit breakers in case of a surge or outage.

 

“We are not finished with hurricane season yet.”

 

On our website, www.GeoThermalFlorida.com, you can find a list pertaining to water levels, chemistry, and filtration equipment preparation suggestions, provided by commercial energy specialists from Jupiter, Florida.

As we’re now finally able to take a breath after Hurricane Irma, I’d like to take a moment to thank all of the power companies who worked around the clock to get the power back on. I hope you and your families were safe and well through the storm.

If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Hurricane Irma Recovery: Beware Of Unlicensed Contractors

Unfortunately, after a disaster like Hurricane Irma, unscrupulous contractors come out of the woodwork to offer their services to help homeowners repair their homes. In many cases, these unscrupulous contractors are unlicensed, untrained and unregulated. They may perform shoddy work, charge more than they should and the homeowner is left — in some cases — worse off than they were before these “contractors” showed up.

protect yourself from contractors

The Better Business Bureau of West Florida explains that “Natural disasters can bring out the best in people and they can bring out the worst. In the aftermath of a crisis scams and unlicensed contractors are out to take advantage of those who have been victimized.” Representatives from the BBB say, “It is common for out-of-town storm chasers to solicit business after storms,” said Karen Nalven, BBB President. “Disaster victims should never feel pressured to make a decision by an unknown contractor.  Consumers should Start With Trust and look for the BBB Accredited Business Seal; these companies are screened, monitored, licensed and trusted.  Storm chasers may not have proper licensure for your area and may offer quick fixes or make big promises to which they won’t deliver.” Read More »

Symbiont Service Team Volunteers During Hurricane Irma Clean-up

Before, during and after #HurricaneIrma, Sandy King, president of Symbiont Service Corp said her employees pulled together to prepare the business to weather the storm. “We had team members boarding up the windows at the store, securing equipment and doing everything necessary to assure everything was as safe as possible,” she said. “We also had a few team members who stayed at the store during the height of the hurricane because they felt safer there than at home.”

After the storm passed, Sandy and her team jumped into action to get the business back up and running, “We knew we were going to have customers who would need to have their pool heaters and their home air conditioning units inspected before they were able to safely turn them back on and we wanted to be ready when our customers needed us.”

Using Geothermal Energy: What is it?

Contact Us

 

You’ve probably heard of geothermal heating before, but what does it actually mean? “Geo-” means “earth,” and “thermal” means “heat.” There are two types of geothermal heating:

1. High-grade (direct). Three examples of high-grade geothermal heating include geysers like Old Faithful at Yellowstone National Park, which erupts every 92 minutes; hot springs such as Warm Mineral Springs in North Port, Florida, which has water at 87° Fahrenheit that feeds the lake; and power plants like the ones in California that use steam from deep wells to turn turbines to produce electricity.

“Geothermal heat pumps work anywhere in the United States.”

2. Low-grade (indirect). Symbiont Service uses low-grade, or indirect, heating to operate our heating and cooling systems. Low-grade geothermal energy is free energy below the Earth’s surface which we move to where the heat is needed using a heat pump. How does a heat pump work? A heat pump is a mechanical device that uses a refrigerant to move heat from a source (such as a well), to a heat sink (a place where heat is needed) such as a pool or spa. Geothermal heat pumps work anywhere in the United States.

Symbiont Service uses a heat pump called the Symbiont, which was originally designed by my father, Roy King, here in Englewood, Florida. The first Symbiont was installed in the early 1980s. We use Symbiont geothermal heat pumps to heat pools at locations across the Florida area—YMCAs, schools, universities, both city and county pools, residentials, and hundreds of condominiums.

Please reach out to us by calling or emailing if you are interested in a consultation to find out if geothermal heating is the right application for you, and if it is, we’ll provide a complementary survey of your pool for an installation estimate. We look forward to helping you.
