About South Florida Air Conditioning and Heating Companies
A properly functioning air conditioning and heating unit is a necessity—especially in the South Florida heat—but there are a number of variables that go into maintaining an HVAC system from an efficiency standpoint, including insulation, duct sealing, programmable thermostats, and meeting standard ratings.
The main rating that heat pumps and air conditioners should adhere to is the Standard Energy Efficiency Ratio, or the SEER rating. While upgrading your 15-year-old air conditioner with a SEER rating of 6 might be a little more expensive, upgrading to a unit that has a SEER rating of 14 (the standard for southern regions) will pay for itself in savings on power and energy bills. Other options to increase efficiency include adding coverage to poorly insulated areas or installing a programmable thermostat to use less energy when the house is unoccupied.
There are some issues that HVAC troubleshooting can solve, like resetting the circuit breakers to make sure the system has power, removing condensate drain line clogs, or replacing filters regularly. At the very least, you should call a local Best Pick company for routine maintenance, but they can also fix your bigger HVAC problems.
