Air Express wants to make your Tampa home smarter. And we’re starting with your air conditioner, which is likely as outdated as the linoleum in your grandma’s kitchen.
Smart systems are built to integrate your needs with your home’s functionality. Wouldn’t it be nice if your AC system automatically knew to deliver more cooling when you’re on your way home? And further, wouldn’t it be great if your AC system could deliver the optimal amount of cooling at every point in the day without breaking the bank? Smart systems turn both of those ideals into reality. We build your smart system around an inverter AC, the most efficient and high-tech system on the market, and a WiFi thermostat with geofencing technology. Depending on your individual needs, we might expand upon this framework to deliver a more integrated and effective system! At the end of the day, the most important aspect of a smart system is the simplicity it brings to your life, as it helps your air conditioner run optimally all day without you even having to think about it!
Inverter systems are growing in popularity, and it’s easy to see why. They truly are the system of the future, and beyond just being a better system, they can also help you save money on your energy bills. You wouldn’t buy a Hummer if you wanted to save money on gas (we hope)– so why would you buy an outdated, inefficient AC system? This question becomes especially important when you consider the longevity of your air conditioner, which is significantly lengthened when you buy an inverter. Whether you plan on staying in your current home for ten months or ten years, it’s important to invest in a high-quality AC system, as it will help improve the resale value of your house and help you live more comfortably and more efficiently in the meantime.
To keep it simple, inverters constantly monitor the amount of air and cooling they need to deliver in order to achieve an optimal temperature. You can understand the difference inverters make by using a bell curve, which mirrors the average heat load (think temperature variance) throughout the day. It’s coolest in the mornings and evenings and warmest in the afternoon. This same bell curve can also be applied to the heat load throughout the year, especially in states with super hot summers and cooler winters.
The actual work performed by your air conditioner can be represented by a line going through the bell curve (see red line above). Most conventional systems offered today are single-stage systems, which are built upon the same technology that air conditioners were invented upon. This type of air conditioner only works optimally at two times throughout the day, or where the line intersects the curve. This is because a single-stage air conditioner is either on or off and delivers a constant cooling load no matter what.
This is where inverter air conditioners (pictured in green above) come in. Inverters are built to work in accordance with the natural variance of temperature throughout the day. They constantly measure how much air and cooling they need to deliver in order to achieve an optimal temperature. Because of the flexible nature of inverter systems, they’re able to lower your energy bills and last longer. Inverter AC systems are not only better at doing work, but they’re also better at keeping your home comfortable. They regulate humidity better than older systems and keep your home at a consistent temperature, instead of cycling on and off throughout the day. In short… inverter systems are the best on the market, and if you’re looking for AC installation in Tampa, you should definitely call Air Express to install one for you! Want to read more? Check out our inverter blog post! We offer inverters from Amana, Trane, and Mitsubishi.
In addition to inverter systems, we also offer WiFi Lyric thermostats. You’ve probably heard of Nest thermostats, which enable you to regulate the temperature of your home from your phone. But Lyric builds upon that technology by adding in geofencing. Geofencing gives you the ability to create a zone around your home, so your thermostat will be able to anticipate your arrival and departure and adjust accordingly. This keeps your home running effectively by adjusting to your lifestyle.
And because we believe so wholeheartedly in smart homes… we’re including a Google Mini with every inverter system installation. Call us today to set up your free Tampa AC estimate!
