Spring Has Sprung — Is A/C Replacement on the Horizon as Well?

- Published by

Daylight Savings Time has come, we’ve all set our clocks forward, and schoolkids are getting excited because it’s the last stretch toward summer vacation. Spring is a great time of year! But it also means that the sweltering Orlando summer heat is on its way, and now’s the time for an A/C replacement if your unit is getting on in years. The A/C in your house doesn’t just keep you cool, it also helps control the humidity, so it’s a good idea to get that squared away before the summer thunderstorms roll in.

We speak to a lot of homeowners who don’t know when their HVAC equipment needs an upgrade. After all, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? And if it is broke, isn’t fixing it less expensive? Well, yes and no. If your A/C is still working, but not as well as it used to, you might be spending more on energy than you need to. You might also not be as comfortable at home as you could be. And if you’re repairing your A/C unit often, replacement might be cheaper in the long run. If you’re on the fence about an A/C replacement, consider these tips:

  • If you’re looking at a repair cost amounting to half the cost of an installation or more, go for the upgrade.
  • If your house never gets to a comfortable temperature, you may need a new unit. Or you may need to have someone look at your ductwork, especially if the cooling is inconsistent from room to room.
  • If you’ve noticed your energy costs going up, have someone in to look at your system, and ask if an A/C replacement would be a good idea.
  • If your system is too noisy, have it looked at by the experts.
  • If you take the Energy Star Home Energy Yardstick test and you get a score under five, you’re probably paying too much on your energy bills! Upgrading to more efficient equipment can keep costs down.

If this spring has you looking at an A/C replacement, look us up at Scott’s Heating and Air Conditioning!

Oh my god what an amazing company! I literally called one hour ago and said that my thermostat wasn’t working and there was a knock on my door within the hour! They told us what to do to fix it therefore saving us a $600 bill. They came right away, none of that we can see you in 48 hour junk. Amazing.

They were able to provide me with same day service, friendly and very responsive. Also, I got 2 other quotes and the pricing was the most competitive.
So thankful and impressed! My dad returned home after having open heart surgery to a completely dead HVAC system in the middle of summer. Definitely not ideal. The repair was going to be pricey so he opted for a new unit. A crew came out on a Saturday and did a very clean and efficient install. Highly recommend this company!!!

Very professional, work very neat and cleaned up and removed stuff. Very impressed with all of the staff and the company.
Our AC decided to quit during one of the hottest heatwaves in years. We called Scott's and someone was at the house to give us a quote in 30 min. From the moment they answered our first phone call through the install everyone was amazing, professional and provided a quality product and excellent service. Craig, Jose, Dexter were awesome! One of the new guys brought us a portable unit at 9:30 PM on a Friday so we could sleep. We missed his name, but shout out to him as well (he likes to give high fives). Thanks Scott and team for everything. We highly recommend!!!

For the past week I've worked with Craig on getting estimates for a new A/C unit, and he has been great at answering my questions and addressing any concerns. Very responsive and knowledgeable, straight shooter and direct! I didn't have to deal with any up-selling like working with a used car salesman (I experienced that with other bigger local A/C companies providing quotes). For these qualities alone I would recommend Scott's A/C, even though I will disclose that we ultimately went with another quote from a family referral of an A/C company. Had that family referral not been apart of our consideration, we would definitely choose and recommend Scott's for new A/C installs and service!

We can't thank Scott's enough. We came home to a air conditioner barely limping along. I called Scott's first thing in the morning and they had a technician out that day. Unfortunately our system could not be saved. The salesman Craig came out that day as well and quoted a new system. Since it was a Friday we could not get the system installed until Tuesday. Scott's provided us with a portable system which definitely helped during the grueling heat wave in Central Florida. Tuesday came, the installers showed up on time and did an awesome installation job. Cleaned everything up and went on their way. Everyone was pleasant, professional and great to work with! Thank You Scott's Heating & Cooling!

Always happy with their response time. Issue started last night causing our A/C unit to shut down. Made a call to Scott's Heating and Air in the morning and a tech was here by 10:45am. Tyrie, the tech, is awesome. He quickly took care of the problem and had us up and running in no time at all. He is knowledgeable and professional and did a great job.
Perfect company to do business with. Professional and courteous in all phases of project.

Excellent response and service. After 25 years of being serviced by a competitor I decided to change companies. AC was out and in need of replacement. Within 24 hours we had the sales rep here and new unit going in for a reasonable expense. No upselling, phony money savings, or timeshare presentations- just a new system without being targeted and pressured into pricey newer technology that will also become obsolete and non reparable every system cycle. I’m recommending to everyone looking for a new provider

Scott’s saved the day for us this evening. Our A/C stopped working and it got hot inside quickly, which was more complicated because I’m 36 weeks pregnant. Scott’s was responsive to our call and within two hours someone had come and fixed our unit!
