LONGWOOD, Fla.– Florida residents know that the single most important appliance in the home is the air conditioner … especially in summer. Floridians also know that high energy bills (due to the constantly running AC) is an unfortunately reality when living in “The Sunshine State.” However, according to Service One AC of Longwood, energy costs can be managed, and even reduced, by updating and maintaining an efficient AC system.
“In the past decade, there have been significant advances in home cooling systems,” said Service One founder and president, Bill Gouty. “Air conditioning systems today are a lot more efficient than past. If your system was installed prior to 2006, it’s possible that it could be highly inefficient by today’s standards.”
Since heating and air conditioning systems use more power than anything else in the home, it’s important to get top efficiency for it. Replacing a substandard air conditioner can increase efficiency by up to 60 percent. Service One technicians have the knowledge and experience to deliver both preventative measures and effective solutions for home heating and air conditioning needs. “If your current system is broken, running sloppy or simply out-of-date, I invite you to see what Service One can do for you,” said Gouty. “I truly believe that there’s no reason to waste money repairs on an old system.”
As technology has advanced, there are many options available to save money and be more energy-efficient. All of the products used at Service One have energy efficiency, or Energy Star, ratings. Service One AC is also a designated Trane Comfort Specialist. “This is an important distinction for us as not every dealer qualifies as a Trane Comfort Specialist,” said Gouty. “Only those dealers that meet Trane’s stringent standards and who demonstrate a commitment to customer satisfaction, continuing education and commitment to training with Trane’s latest technology, are considered Comfort Specialists.”
“Another important factor to consider is your AC’s seasonal energy efficiency ratio or SEER rating,” said Gouty. SEER indicates the relative amount of energy needed to provide a specific cooling output. Many older systems have SEER ratings of 6 or less, however, the current minimum SEER allowed is 13. “I recommend looking for the ENERGY STAR® label for central air conditioners with SEER ratings of 13 or greater, but consider using air conditioning equipment with even higher ratings for greater savings,” continued Gouty.
When looking for heating or air conditioning service, Service One books customer appointments on the spot and will arrive for service within 24 hours. “Plus if it’s an emergency,” said Gouty, “we’ll come immediately to help you resolve your issue.” In addition, Service One AC offers flat-rate pricing, certification by NATE and the EPA, comprehensive background checks on all employees and detailed customer satisfaction surveys.
