Do You Have The Right A/C Unit For Your Home?

Have you ever wondered, “Do you have the right A/C unit for your home?” It’s a question our experienced HVAC contractors get asked all the time. Many Florida homeowners feel that “bigger is better” when it comes to the size of the air conditioning unit for their homes, but that isn’t necessariliy the case. In some instances “bigger” means it’s costing you more money to operate, but is not necessarily cooling your home any better than a smaller, fit-to-your house size would.

Do You Have The Right A/C Unit For Your Home?

The answer to the “correct size” air conditioning unit for your home isn’t as simple as it may seem. Homeowners, and even some HVAC contractors, use a rule of thumb calculation to determine what size A/C unit to install. This rule of thumb includes essentially calculating the square footage of the house then looking for a unit that shows it will cool a home of that square footage. It’s essentially guesswork and it’s guesswork that could cause your utility bills to be higher than they need to be. Read More »

Should I Get A High Efficiency Air Conditioning System

Should I Get A High Efficiency Air Conditioning System

Homeowners and business owners in Florida will ask themselves, “Should I get a high efficiency air conditioning system?” when they are shopping for a new build or a replacement unit for their home or business. At Symbiont Service Corp, we urge our customers to “take a long-term approach” when making a decision.

Here are a few things to consider:

  1.  An air conditioner may cost less to install, but it doesn’t mean you’ll save money in the long run, in fact, the opposite is quite often true.
  2. The air conditioner chosen impacts electric bills for decades.
  3. Check the energy efficiency of various models as they are not all created equally.

Most high high efficiency air conditioning systems have a higher price point but the return on your investment in the long run of operating the unit during a sultry Florida summer needs to be considered. Ask the retailer for a breakdown and comparison on the initial cost of the unit versus the overall long-term use operating costs.

Disney and Symbiont: Together

Disney Nature Conservacy

Disney Nature Conservacy

Bosch

Symbiont Logo

GeoThermal Heating and Cooling have reached the Everglades – in the Disney Wilderness Preserve.

To protect and conserve Florida, The Walt Disney Company purchased land at the head of the Greater Everglades watershed in Kissimmee that was at risk for commercial development. Aside from maintaining the natural ecosystems within the Everglades area, Disney conservation efforts included the use of “Green” technology throughout the land and its properties.

In Spring 2015, the preserve’s Conservation Learning Center building was retrofitted to include GeoThermal Heating and Cooling. The learning center’s heat pumps were replaced with Bosch Thermotechnology Units – installed by Symbiont.
The GeoThermal technology of the Bosch units does not change the chemical composition of the land, sustaining the environmental integrity of the Everglades. Symbiont and Bosch’s collaborative “Green” efforts provide Disney’s Wilderness Preservation Center visitors and staff with comfort, while boasting affordability and energy savings.

The Disney Wilderness Preservation is yet another environmentally sound project that Symbiont Service is proudly involved in.

Symbiont would like to thank Retrofit – a publication and website that specializes in featuring retrofitting projects, for the feature.
Check out the article here:

The Disney Wilderness Preserve is a collaborative effort of Disney, the State of Florida, The Nature Conservancy and other groups.
