Get it while it’s... Cold???

smac-replace-blog

When it comes to replacing your old air conditioning system in the (usually) balmy Sarasota area, you can turn that old “get it while it’s hot” idiom right on its head…

Here in the Suncoast, heating and air conditioning companies are less busy in the winter months, so if you’re about ready for a new HVAC system, or you’ve been putting off some much-needed ductwork, take advantage of the relatively rare cold weather we’ve been having, and save yourself some money!

If your HVAC system is over 15 years old (approaching the end of its lifespan) replacing before it quits on you on the hottest day of the year (because that’s when it will go), means you won’t get stuck with expensive emergency repair or replacement costs, and you’ll save money on your electric bills because you'll have a far more efficient air conditioning system installed, before the dog days arrive.

Installing a new HVAC system in the winter also means more flexible scheduling options and you’ll save with our winter labor rates because our guys won’t have to work in a 120-degree attic!

As a bonus, YOU won’t have to suffer in the heat, while the work gets done…

Call 941-921-7208 for a Free Estimate, and step into summer with complete peace of mind!

Is your AC ready for a Florida Winter?

blog jan 20

Believe it or not, Florida Winters can put your HVAC system through the wringer.

One day it’s in the high 80s and the next you’re cranking up the heat and piling on the blankets. Make sure your AC system is ready for the Florida Winter Workout by following these easy steps:

  1. Make sure your air filter is clean.

Dirty air filters affect your indoor air quality and they force your AC to work harder than it needs to. If you haven’t changed your air filter in a while, now would be a great time to do so.

  1. Program your thermostat for the “Heat” setting.

When switching from the “Cool” setting to the “Heat” setting, make sure you set the thermostat to a temperature that will provide comfort as well as energy savings and, if you’re ever tempted to use the “Em Heat” setting, read our What is Emergency Heat? blog first.

  1. Schedule a maintenance visit.

Regular preventive AC maintenance is the best way to ensure trouble-free operation and peak performance throughout the year. Our maintenance agreements include two 32+ point inspections per year and our maintenance agreement customers enjoy 15% discount on any service need that may arise during the contract year, after-hours service calls billed at our non-emergency rate, and discounts on all system replacements.
