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 »

The Benefits Of GeoThermal Energy

The Benefits Of GeoThermal Energy 

At Symbiont Service Corp we certainly understand the benefits of GeoThermal Energy and we get asked by potential customers all of the time to explain the benefits so they can make an informed decision on heating and cooling for their swimming pool water. Geothermal systems are considered to be the most energy efficient and environmentally friendly heat pumps on the market today. Geothermal technology also provides years of reliable safe comfort.

The benefits of geothermal energy include:

  1. Quiet operation. There are no noisy units that will disturb the enjoyment you take out of your outside environment. Your neighbors will thank you!
  2. Geothermal is more efficient than ordinary heating and air conditioning units because the systems deliver more energy than they use.
  3. A geothermal system will offer a more precise distribution of cooled or heated air, year round. You will not have to deal with hot spots and cold spots and this is important for both pool owners and homeowners in Florida.
  4. Geothermal technology is more reliable than most air conditioning units and heat pumps. Geothermal typically require less maintenance than other heating and cooling units.
  5. Environmentally friendly systems. The Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency note that geothermal is the most “environmentally-friendly way to heat and cool your home” or your swimming pool or both! Geothermal systems don’t emit carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases that are considered contributors to environmental air pollution.

If you’re in the process of a swimming pool upgrade or renovation and want to install a system that can both heat and cool your swimming pool water, give our geothermal system installation professionals a call for more information.

A/C Zoning Systems Enhance Comfort

A/C Zoning Systems Enhance Comfort, Symbiont Service professionals explain

With autumn in the air, you may not be thinking of upgrading your air conditioner, but upgrading now, at the end of the heating season might just be the ideal time. Starting your air conditioner upgrade now means that when summer 2017 rolls around, your home will be comfortable. When you’re talking with your Symbiont Service geothermal and air conditioner professional ask about how A/C zoning systems will enhance comfort throughout your home.

To ensure you’re making the best use of your air conditioning unit, having zoned temperature control provides flexibility in the customization of climate control for each separate room — or zone — in your home. With zoning systems in place, your family will never have the complaint that “this room is too cold” or “this room is too hot” because all of the rooms will be “just right!” 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.

Tips On How To Tell When It's Time To Replace Your Air ConditionerThere are several telltale signs to look for if you’re wondering whether you should replace your air conditioner.
