Heating and Cooling Experts in Ponte Vedra Beach
Mike Merritt Heating & Air Conditioning are heating and cooling experts that stay on top of the latest changes and best practices. For example, under the Clean Air Act, the use of Freon will be banned in January 2020. Puron is the new environmentally friendly refrigerant that will be required by 2020. We offer a wide range of top-brand heating and cooling systems that use Puron to get our customers ready for this national requirement. In addition, we offer some of the most energy efficient systems on the market, including Energy Star certified systems by Mitsubishi, Trane and Bryant. Although the current government standard is a unit with a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) of 13, we recommend our customers take advantage of the more energy cost saving units with 16 SEER and greater. The higher SEER units are more expensive, but you can recoup the upfront costs within several years in energy cost savings. With a high SEER unit that is Energy Star certified, you can also get a $1,500 tax credit on your annual tax return.
Before we install any system, our skilled technicians will do an expert load calculation following the outlined protocols in the Air Conditioner Contractors of America (ACCA) manual. As professionals in the industry, we realize how important an expert load calculation is for efficiency and comfort. An undersized unit will cause the system to continually run, and an oversized unit will frequently cycle on and off. Our technicians will measure each room and all walls. Placement of windows, climate and the amount of occupants are also factors taken into consideration when determining the right size unit for your home. All of our installations are 100-percent guaranteed.
For both existing and new HVAC systems, it is essential that the system is routinely maintained. Your HVAC system is the largest and most expensive appliance in the home and well-worth the protection with a preventative maintenance plan. We offer a variety of service plans based on the level of service you need. During a routine visit, our skilled technicians will check and repair leaks, recharge refrigerant, clean the coil, test the thermostat, lubricate parts and make any necessary repairs. With our service plans, we offer discounts on replacement parts and labor. It’s just another way we offer our customers cost-effective solutions. In addition, industry studies have shown that service plans increase a unit’s lifecycle by 30 percent.
