Robert’s Top Picks To Get the Most Out of Your Air Conditioner

Let’s face it- Buying an air conditioner doesn’t typically rank as one of the most exciting purchases, but we Floridians know that it can surely be the most important! Our family has been in the AC business for almost a century, and we’ve seen a lot of technology evolve. With that in mind, I’ve ranked my favorite items that can help every homeowner get the most out of their system. From air quality to efficiency- these add-ons can help keep your family comfortable, even in the most intense weather.

1. Dust, dander, pollen, and air filtration: AprilAire

Why I like it:  This accessory can save you from seasonal allergies, dander, and viruses than can sneak into your home. The Aprilaire Air Purifier only requires a filter change once a year, which is a nice change from traditional systems that require a new filter every three months.

2. Airborne bacteria and virus protection: Guardian Air REME HALO

Why I like it:  Have you ever walked into a home, and immediately been able to tell if they have pets? That’s because they probably didn’t have a Guardian Air! This accessory is great to “freshen” the air that you breathe by killing and neutralizing bacteria, viruses, and odors.

3. Storm protection: Condensing Unit Surge Protector

Why I like it:  Florida is the lightning capital of the United States. This accessory can protect your HVAC system from the irreversible damage that lightning can inflict. In addition to lightning, your unit can also be impacted by faulty wiring, bad electrical components, and power outages.

4. Humidity & temperature control: Ecobee Thermostat

Why I like it:  Talk about a “smart” choice! This thermostat doesn’t just work to keep your house at your desired temperature, but it also helps in controlling the humidity in your home…which can get out of hand in Florida! You can adjust this thermostat from your smartphone and program temperatures to coincide with your schedule- allowing you to reduce your power usage while you aren’t home. Helping the environment, while saving money? It’s pretty easy to see why this is one of our favorite products.

5. HVAC efficiency & longevity: Preventative Maintenance Plan

Why I like it:  If I had to pick one option for customers to add to their system, it would be our planned maintenance agreement. These agreements allow our trained technicians to inspect your HVAC system, as well as any of the above accessories. We make sure that everything is running at max capacity, and can address concerns before they become catastrophic. In fact, many manufacturers require seasonal maintenance visits in order to keep the equipment warranties intact.

6. AirFlow & Noise Reduction: Adjustable blade grills

Why I like it:  While you may not give much thought to the piece of metal that your air conditioning comes out of (I am aware that not everyone loves air conditioning as much as I do), it can surprisingly make a big difference in your experience! By choosing adjustable blade grills, you can increase the airflow throughout each living space, as well as reduce noise.  This creates a more even distribution of air and can help in avoiding pockets of inconsistencies.
