So you’re in the market for a new air conditioning system. By now, you have probably looked at a few key factors that you hope for in a new system, like efficiency, affordability and durability. One thing you may not have considered, however, is looking into a different type of system entirely—a heat pump.
A heat pump is not so unlike a standard air conditioning system. However, there are a few extra components to your heat pump that differentiate it from the conventional AC. These additional valves allow the refrigerant that flows through the system to move in reverse when the weather is chilly and you switch the thermostat to heating mode. Heat can leave the home in the summer and it can enter the home in the winter.
What this means for your wallet
A heat pump is by not going to be less expensive than a traditional AC. A high-efficiency heat pump is certainly going to cost you upfront, but the monthly savings should be worth it. Look at the SEER of your new system and work with a qualified technician to make sure that the system will save you from month to month.
In the winter, a heat pump is a far more efficient heating option than many others. This is because other heating systems must generate heat. Producing heat takes a lot of energy, but moving heat around does not. An air-source heat pump is an environmentally friendly heating option, especially in a climate like Florida’s, as they work best in warmer areas.
Besides, replacing the AC and heater at once with a single system may be more cost effective than replacing both systems separately. Installing a new furnace may not be worth the cost, as we tend to use ours sparingly in the Jacksonville climate.

Kyle came out to do maintenance on the unit they installed 4 years ago and I can say the level of service from then to now has been stellar. The unit is in great shape and the peace of mind from their maintenance service is worth it. Nothing but good things to say about this company. 10/10 would recommend.

The best, end of story! We had to have our system replaced when we bought our old beach home. I was totally blown away with how quickly the job was done. The crew was extremely professional, and kept everything clean.

Jason and crew were great to work with. A hands on owner which cares about the work and system being installed. Extremely recommend. The three hundred dollar rebate from Beaches Energy for the high efficiency unit was also icing on the cake.

I had Kyle as my technician and the customer service was top notch. He was prompt and very polite. The thing I appreciated was the honesty. There wasn’t any attempt to try and provide me service that I didn’t need, and no pressure to try and upsell me on anything. Kyle was knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. I got on the maintenance plan and recommend this company to everyone.
