Professional Tips on Buying AC

Living in Florida can be downright unpleasant if your air conditioner isn’t performing at a high level. Whether your AC is broken, your energy bill is way too high or you want a more advanced system that you can control on your phone, buying a new air conditioner can be complicated if you don’t know what to look for. Here are some professional tips from Scott’s Heating and Air Conditioning to make your search a little easier.

The Size of Your Home Matters

Understanding your home’s size and layout is important to determine how large your system should be. If your air conditioner is too big, it will cycle on and off constantly, wearing down the system over time. If the air conditioning system is too small, it will not be able to heat or cool your home properly and the system will get overworked.

In both cases, your air conditioner will be less efficient and will break down more often. Make sure that an AC technician calculates your home’s heat load correctly to better assess which system is the right fit.

Energy Star systems typically have a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating of 15 or higher.

Efficiency is King

Florida summers are notorious for skyrocketing energy bills. Picking the right system means picking the most energy-efficient system on the market. Trust us. Your bank account will thank you.

Be sure to look for the Energy Star label to find air conditioners that have met the requirements established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Energy Star systems typically have a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating of 15 or higher. The SEER rating relates to how much A/C cooling is produced compared to the energy output over a cooling season. Higher ratings mean more efficiency and greater savings on your utility bill.

Smart Thermostats are Great Investments

Smart Thermostats are Great InvestmentsThe internet of things has made our normal appliances even easier to use with digital technologies. Smart Thermostats are a great asset in maintaining a comfortable house and managing energy costs.

Smart thermostats allow you to build a custom temperature control plan that optimizes your air conditioning preferences based on your daily schedule. Automatically raise temperatures when you go to work. Automatically lower them when you get home. Reduce your energy bill and increase your comfort in your own home with a smart thermostat.

AC Service Testimonials

  • review rating 5  CLIFF WAS AWESOME!!! After our AC unit wasnt cooling like it used CLIFF came to my home and did a phenomenal job. He was very professional and knowledgable. I work in the service field as well and noticed how clean and organized he kept his tools and material/parts he was removing and replacing. Parts were cleaned to the best of his ability due to it being a 21 year old unit. He did a fantastic job. Would definitely recommend SCOTTS to my neighborhood and google members. Now my house cools off in no time. Thanks again CLIFF and of course the SCOTTS TEAM.

  • review rating 5  We had a great experience With this company, starting off with our sales person Daniel, extending to the entire installation crew. I’m sorry that I don’t remember all the names of the technicians who installed our units, but each and every one of them was very courteous, professional, and informative. They did not leave the house until the job is done right, and I did take a long time because we do have an older house. They started the job at about 8:30 in the morning and finished at 10 PM. They cleaned up everything and made sure that there was a full explanation as to how to use the thermostat units and the app so that we could control all of the AC units from our cell phones. They also made sure to follow up after the installation to make sure that we were satisfied with the job. I would certainly recommend Scott’s for AC installation.
