HVAC maintenance tool bag

Affectionately known as the “Original Fountain of Youth,” Green Cove Springs is one of Florida’s many hidden treasures. Beyond the hydrological spring that gives it its name, the charming Southern town offers beautiful scenery defined by the St. Johns River and classic Spanish moss. What residents seem to love most about Green Cove Springs, though, is its warm weather, requiring a strong, dependable air conditioning system. 

When your central AC unit fails, and you need an AC replacement in Green Cove Springs, FL, look no further. At Southern Air Heating & Cooling, our HVAC professionals specialize in AC installation services, helping you select the perfect unit for your home size, budget, efficiency preferences, and cooling needs. Whether your old unit has reached the end of its lifespan or you simply want to upgrade to something more efficient, our expert technicians are happy to help. 

How To Tell When You Need To Replace Your AC

Knowing when to replace your AC isn’t always simple. While some central AC systems can last up to 20 years, others may begin failing much sooner. If you do not replace your unit promptly, you could waste tons of money on expensive repairs and high energy bills when you could have invested those funds in a more efficient and effective model.

Here are some factors to consider if you’re thinking about replacing your AC:

  • Repair costs and frequency: If you’re frequently paying for expensive repairs, you may be better off buying a new unit. 
  • Energy costs: Older air conditioners do not provide the same energy efficiency as modern systems. If you want to enjoy lower utility bills, you’ll need to upgrade. 
  • Cooling abilities: You may find that no matter how many times you repair your unit, it still can’t cool your home properly. Sometimes, certain ACs do not have the right cooling capacities for larger homes. In this case, you will need to upgrade. 
  • Unit age: As your unit approaches the end of its expected lifespan, you may want to replace it before it begins malfunctioning so you can avoid expensive repairs.

Replacing vs. Repairing Your AC

Deciding between repairing and replacing your unit is always a big decision. Let our team help you choose the most cost-effective option based on your estimated repair quote, your model’s life expectancy, and new unit prices. In general, we may recommend a replacement if your repairs add up to more than half the cost of a new unit, if the current unit cannot keep up with your cooling needs, or if it has reached its life expectancy. 

Our Thorough AC Replacement Evaluations

We conduct thorough AC replacement evaluations to help you select the best unit for your cooling needs. Your expert technician will consider the following factors during your AC replacement in Green Cove Springs, FL:

  • Size and capacity: Our experts measure your property’s size to understand cooling capacity requirements. All AC units provide different cooling strengths measured in BTUs. We will help you select a suitable system for effective cooling without going over budget. 
  • Energy efficiency: Energy-efficient units allow you to save money over time. We can discuss different options with you so you can determine how much you’re willing to invest now for long-term savings.
  • Ductwork: We want to ensure that you enjoy ideal airflow with your new unit, so your technician will also inspect your ductwork to check for any repair or modification requirements before installation. 

The Benefits of an AC Upgrade

When you upgrade to a new AC, you can reap the following benefits:

  • Enhanced comfort from a powerful system designed to meet your cooling needs
  • Reduced repair costs and increased reliability
  • Ideal peace of mind, knowing the system will last for years
  • Increased energy efficiency and eco-friendliness as the lower energy usage will reduce your carbon footprint 
  • Improved indoor air quality and reduced humidity, as new systems provide better air filtration
  • Options for smart control features so you can manage temperature settings while on the go

Today is May13,2024 and I am still extremely happy with Southern Air. My tech Jason was soo professional and handled my dogs 🐕 with the utmost care and respect. He did such a great job, I hope he gets a raise. He is going to do a follow up and replace my Air filter. Super nice guy.Thanks Jason for a Job well done 👱‍♀️Up date... Hi everyone, this the second time Demare Purifoy has been to my home. He is a great guy, who does an excellent job. Demare follows up with his customers. I've couldn't have asked for a better technician. Give this guy a raise!! He was great even with all 7 of my dogs.Thanks DemareDemare is Awesome as always... Explains everything he needs to do with your AC unit and gets the job done in a timely manner. Very professional and always polite.Thank you Demare for a job well done....Jill WilliamsSouthern Air is the Greatest company we've have had the pleasure of dealing with since moving to Putnam County. Our AC unit went out while I was away dealing with my the passing of my mother. They were quick to respond with same day services for repair and an estimate for a new system. Jason and Jeremy were the Greatest guys ever. Southern Air should be Proud these guys were polite, courteous, and concerned for our well being with this heat. We tried another AC company, they came out once, left after speaking to me and never came back.I love Southern Air. I'll never use any one else.
Southern Air has fantastic response time. Called after 5pm and they arrived within 30 minutes and had our unit up and running within the hour. Jason has been servicing our unit since it was installed. Always professional, courteous, and helpful. Great service, thank you!
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for your 5 Star review Nancie!
Jason was prompt, professional & worked to remedy our problem but more parts are needed. He advised unit is operable but may not for long. He said he'll order parts ASAP & we'll be contacted when unit can be repaired. Thank you Jason & Brandi for responding so quickly.
My 14 year-old heat pump died around midnight friday (4/26/24); so I googled help and saw Southern Air actually uses an answering service so are reachable 24/7. Because it was midnight I opted to contact them via email.Saturday (4/27/24) early afternoon Robert, the technician, showed up and reviewed the problems. I opted for a new unit, Robert said he would contact a gentleman by Monday to come out and do an estimate.Jeremy showed up around 9:00 am this morning (4/29/2024) and gave me a professional, expeditious, cost feasible quote for a new system and totally new duct work.By 2:45 pm I was lounging in my lazy-boy playing Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning and the house was 73 degrees. Now THAT is excellent customer service!You almost can't get in and out of an emergency room on the weekend that fast.The install techs were great, Jeremy was great, Robert was great, and Brandy from the office was great.THANK YOU you guys, for everything.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for your 5 Star review Fredda!
