When it comes time for home renovations, not many people think of their air conditioning system. Your air conditioner doesn’t have a major aesthetic impact on your home, and they can be expensive to replace. However, regardless of your initial reason for renovating, replacing your AC system can have a drastic impact on your home’s comfort, efficiency, and resale value. Plus, some of the WiFi thermostats on the market are actually quite trendy… so your AC replacement project can change the way your home looks! Read on to see why your home improvement project should include your Tampa air conditioning system!
1) You spend 1/3 of your life sleeping.
Yup, you read that right. You spend 1/3 of your life sleeping. Since most people sleep in their bedroom, this means that you spend 1/3 of your life in just one room. So shouldn’t you spend a little extra to make sure that it’s comfortable? Many people complain about their bedroom being too hot at night. Science tells us that sleeping in a cold room can actually improve your health and your sleep quality. But here at Air Express, we think paying to cool your entire home at night is so 2010. We are a huge fan of Zoned Comfort Solutions, both using ductless mini split systems and traditional, ducted systems. These systems enable you to cool just one room, saving you money and keeping you more comfortable at night. We are a Diamond Contractor for Mitsubishi, which means that we’re an industry leader in those systems throughout Tampa. If you’re interested in Zoned Comfort Solutions, click here to read more.
2) New rooms = new AC needs.
If you happen to be building an addition to your home, then it’s important to consider how that will affect your air conditioning system. Your current system was likely sized for your home pre-addition, meaning that adding an extra room (regardless of the size) could make your AC system too small. However, if your AC system was too big in the first place, adding ventilation to this new room might make it more efficient. Either way, it’s important to have your Tampa AC company come out and perform a heat-load calculation on your home, with the addition in mind. They can also help you decide on the best solution for your new room– whether it’s adding new duct, installing a ductless mini split, or replacing your existing air conditioner.

3) Making your home smarter should start with your AC system.
Home automation projects are all the rage these days, especially due to the growing popularity of Google Homes and Alexa devices. But many people don’t know how to use their new AI most effectively… beyond just asking it to tell jokes or predict the weather. We believe strongly in smart AC systems, which can be operated through your Google/Alexa. Our smart systems typically include an inverter AC system, as well as a WiFi thermostat with geofencing technology. Inverters are built with efficiency in mind, and without running the risk of rambling, they can save you 70% on your energy bills each month. Beyond this, they’ll last a lot longer than conventional systems due to their efficiency. We are the #1 installer of inverter AC systems in Tampa, which is partially why we’re the World’s Smartest Technicians! You can read more about inverters and why we love them here.
WiFi thermostats are becoming more commonplace, but many do not have geofencing technology. This technology uses your phone’s location to adjust temperature, allowing you to return home to cool air without paying for it while you’re away. This saves you money and helps optimize the performance of your AC system, adding years to its lifespan. Even if you don’t want to install a new AC system, one of our WiFi thermostats can help you make your existing AC system smarter without spending too much up front. If you’re interested in moving forward with a smart system, we’ll even include a FREE Google Home! Read more here.
4) Selling your home? Replace your air conditioner.
If you’re trying to sell your home, it might be tempting to list it as is. Why put money into something you won’t even enjoy? However, installing a new AC system can improve the resale value of your home dramatically, especially if you choose a high-efficiency system. We offer a number of financing opportunities, like 12 months same as cash, so you can pay for your home’s upgrades on your own time. Read more about financing here! We also offer a number of incentives, such as manufacturer’s rebates and utility company rebates, that can save you money up front. It is entirely possible to make money by installing a new AC system for your home, especially when you do so through Air Express!

However, when you think of long-term savings, as well as improved comfort, your air conditioner is exactly where you should start your home renovation project.
