Recommended Upgrades for your AC System During Summer

Lady suffering the consequences of not upgrading the AC system

Central Florida summers are known for their high temperatures and humidity levels, which can put a lot of strain on your AC system. Are you struggling to keep your home cool and comfortable during this time? If so, your air conditioning (AC) system may be struggling as well.

High temperatures and humidity can put a lot of strain on AC systems, leading to reduced performance and higher energy bills. Fortunately, there are several upgrades you can make to your AC system to improve its efficiency and performance, and keep your home comfortable all summer long.

These Are The Recommended Upgrades for your AC System To Sail Through Summer

  • Smart Thermostat

    • Upgrading to a smart thermostat can help you control the temperature of your home more efficiently and save on energy costs.
  • High-Efficiency Air Filter

    • A high-efficiency air filter can help improve the quality of the air in your home by removing allergens, dust, and other pollutants.
  • UV Light Air Purification System

  • Insulation

  • Upgrade To A High-Efficiency SEER2 AC System

    • Upgrading to a high-efficiency SEER2 AC system can help you save money on energy costs in the long run, as these new systems are designed to use less energy to cool your home.
  • Schedule Regular Maintenance

  • Consider A Whole-Home Dehumidifier

    • The high humidity levels during summer in Central Florida can make your home feel uncomfortable and put additional strain on your AC system. A whole-home dehumidifier can help reduce humidity levels and improve indoor air quality.
  • Float Switch

    • A float switch is recommended for your AC system because it helps prevent water damage caused by a clogged condensate drain, which can occur when your system is working hard to keep your home cool.
  • Duct Sealing

    • If your ducts are leaky, you could be losing up to 30% of the cool air that your AC system produces. Sealing your ducts can help prevent this and reduce energy waste.
  • Variable-Speed Air Handler

  • Zoning System

    • A zoning system can help you control the temperature in different areas of your home, allowing you to save energy and reduce wear and tear on your AC system.
  • Add Attic Ventilation

    • Proper attic ventilation can help prevent hot air from getting trapped in your home, which can reduce the workload on your AC system.
  • Use Reflective Window Film

    • Reflective window film can help reduce the amount of heat that enters your home through your windows, which can make it easier for your AC system to keep your home cool.

These upgrades can not only improve the performance of your AC system but also help you save money on energy costs and improve the air quality in your home. It’s important to consult with a professional AC technician to determine which upgrades are best for your specific needs and budget.

Don’t Risk Having a Miserable Summer

If you choose not to make the recommended upgrades to your AC system during the summer in Central Florida, you may experience a variety of consequences, including reduced performance, higher energy bills, inconsistent indoor temperatures, and an increased risk of breakdowns.

Without proper ventilation and insulation, your home may be prone to hot spots or cool spots, leaving certain areas of your home uncomfortable and less livable. Additionally, an inefficient AC system can lead to increased humidity levels, which can result in mold growth and other indoor air quality issues.

The high temperatures and humidity of Central Florida summers can put a lot of strain on your AC system, causing it to work harder and less efficiently.

Without the recommended upgrades, you may notice reduced performance from your system, with longer wait times for the air to cool and increased noise levels. Over time, the strain on your AC system can also lead to mechanical problems and breakdowns, resulting in costly repairs.

By making the recommended upgrades to your AC system, you can help ensure that your system is running at its best, with improved performance, efficiency, and comfort.

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!
Dan in sales, outstanding jobgoing over equipment and helping us make what was the best decisions for us on purchasing new a/cinstall, plus scheduling the next day!Boris and Justin were excellent with communications while install and after! very clean, professional taking old out and installing new!ty
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!
