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 »

Efficient Ways To Heat Your Florida Swimming Pool

Efficient Ways To Heat Your Florida Swimming Pool

If you live in Florida and have a swimming pool you may be looking for efficient ways to heat your Florida swimming pool so you can extend your swim time. Using a swimming pool heat pump will serve to heat the water in an energy-efficient way.

How does a heat pump work?

A heat pump transfers heat from one area to another, through electricity. A heat pump doesn’t generate heat. It uses the ambient air to heat the pool water by pulling the air into a heat pump, warming it and transferring that heat to your pool water. To maximize savings you will want to work with a pool professional to assure the heat pump you have installed is properly sized to your unique pool. Read More »

You Can Afford GeoThermal

Stacked Heat PumpsGood news, GeoThermal is cost-competitive!
It is most important to consider how you can benefit from investing in GeoThermal.

Long Lift Expectany

With proper maintenance Symbiont’s GeoThermal customers should expect to get 15-20 years of service during the life cycle of the heater.

Why? Symbionts don’t have coils that are exposed to the air (which may have corrosive salt/chlorine in it) like Air Source Heat Pumps and they don’t have burners/heat exchangers that are exposed to the air. Symbiont units are double-protected, not only does the whole system have a painted aluminum shell but the compressor has an additional protective case around it and the coils have a thick composite case around it. 20 years in a normal environment far exceeds the life expectancy of other heating methods and their components.

Low Operation Cost

The operational cost can be as much as 90% lower than propane heaters. This provides our clients with savings throughout the life of their GeoThermal Symbiont unit. Another note on operation – GeoThermal is quiet. The second protective case on the unit acts as a sound deadening case.

Low Life Cycle Cost

Total life cycle costs are less due to the long life expectancy, years of serviceability and low operational costs. Even though GeoThermal may have higher initial costs, they have the lowest long-term overall lifecycle costs while achieving a reliable, comfortable pool temperature.

It’s Green

GeoThermal systems can often be built using all natural resources, like the fresh water lake behind your property.
“Disposal” water can be dropped in a lake, pond, river or creek- among other water sources abundant in Florida.

Consistent Energy-Efficiency

GeoThermal provides clean and safe energy using little land. GeoThermal also conserves fossil fuels and contributes to diversity in energy sources. GeoThermal benefits the local economy by avoiding the need to import components.

GeoThermal Customer MapThousands of satisfied installations!

Symbiont Service Corporation has also been authorized as a Participating Contactor in E|VEST Florida, a project funded by Florida PACE Agency Program.

Florida PaceSymbiont Service Corporation intends to do its first financing project with the PACE Program on “Building 2.”
Located in Charlotte County, Building 2 is located on the lot neighboring Symbiont offices. Building 2 will facilitate the expansion of Symbiont’s Headquarters in Englewood, Florida.
