Are Heat Pumps Energy Efficient?

When you live in Englewood, Florida and have a swimming pool there, the heat to warm the pool water is plentiful and, best of all, free! Florida swimming pool owners benefit from the heat of the day even on days when it’s cool because the air will still retain ambient heat. The ambient heat can be converted to more than 100,000 BTUs to effectively heat your pool water when you use an air-source heat pump system.

Is It Time To Upgrade Your Heating & Cooling Systems?

Now that 2017 is wrapping up and 2018 is fast approaching you may be wondering, “is it time to upgrade your heating & cooling systems?” It is a personal decision as well as an economical one. Whether you’re finding that your heating and cooling bills have risen in the past season or if you can “just tell” that it’s not working as efficiently as it should, it might be time to call in a #geothermal professional to provide a complementary on-site inspection of your heating and cooling systems and give you insight as to the benefits and potential cost savings of upgrading to more energy efficient equipment and upgrading the heating and cooling systems to geothermal.

The Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency founded the Energy Star program in the 1990s as a way to protect the environment and reduce energy usage. They did this by having bright blue Energy Star labels placed on consumer products that met the strict energy guidelines the agency set forth.  Consumers could tell, at a glance, whether the product they were going to buy were energy efficient.tips for upgrading heating and cooling Read More »

How Do GeoThermal Heat Pumps Work?

Did you know that GeoThermal heat pump systems have been used since the 1940s? They use 25-50% less electricity than standard systems and are environmentally friendly. If you need a heat pump for your commercial swimming pool, making a switch to a geothermal system will help your organization reap rewards on lowered utility bills.

An air-source heater is the most common type used to heat swimming pools and close to 50% more energy to perform the same heating task as a geothermal heat pump. Additionally, a geothermal heat pump has fewer moving parts and because the pumps are housed indoors, they are more durable, last longer and pay for themselves.

Get To Know The Symbiont Service Team: Troy Conner

Troy Conner has been with Symbiont Service for a little more than one year. In his role as New Business Development and an Energy Consultant his territory encompasses Southwest and Southeast Florida.

When asked why he enjoyed working with the GeoThermal team at Symbiont Service Troy said, “Symbiont represents a product that is very ecologically-friendly and I really like that,” he said. “It is also a service that is needed in Florida.” Why it’s needed is because, “So many people are interested in being environmentally- and economically friendly and using geothermal to heat the pool year-round is great way for both the people who want to use the pool, the organization that owns the pool because it’s better for their energy bills and for the environment.”

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.

At Symbiont Service, we have an exceptional benefits package, and one of our core values is to take care of our employees. In 2011, we won one of Inc. Magazine’s Top 50 Winning Workplace awards.

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!

Symbiont Service Personnel Build Career-Long Relationships

What are the chances that if you were given a brochure about geothermal energy — or anything for that matter — close to two decades ago that:

  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.
