Air Conditioning Installation: Central Air, Heat Pumps & Ductless

Heat Pumps don’t make much sense unless you want better efficiency on the cold winter days. In fact there is no real tax incentive to purchase Heat Pumps over a Straight Cool AC. This winter 2016/2017 all our home owners with Heat Pumps were enjoying better efficiency that delivered a substantial cost saves on that monthly electric bill. Now that we are moving toward higher standards with 410a refrigerant and 14SEER as the base unit Preferred Mechanical Florida home owners in Pinellas, Pasco & Hernando Counties that install Goodman have cost saves of $100–$150 a month on their electric bill. Everyone else with Straight Cool units have been completely dependent on strip heat (resistance heat) that are typically 5kw for 3 ton, 7kw for 4 ton and 10kw for 5ton homes, costing $$$. When it’s time to change out consider changing up, 3ton or bigger houses should have a minimum 16SEER Heat Pump installed. Going ductless select 18–21SEER for that room addition or lanai close in.
