Hvac Heat System Repairs and Maintenance

Monday, December 13th, 2010

Normally in the past, we never paid much mind to heating here in South Florida as we only really heated our homes or offices less than 72 hours a year. This past winter, in early January, we broke that old fact and turned up the temperature on our thermostats as the temperatures outside shot down. We are the best heating service company. Contact us (954) 772 0079 today and we will prove it to you.

Well here we go again, not even a year has passed and we are doing it again. Let us help you stay safe and warm. Some people had found that they never even had their heaters installed or connected. Some even found out that the wire size in their home was not sufficient to handle any heater of any size. 

If you find yourself left out in the cold by your prior a/c heating service company or the guy down the street that was doing you a favor, don’t worry, we will gladly be the companyto come to the rescue and ensure that you are safe and warm to make it comfortably thought the rest of what we anticipate to be a harsh season here in South West Palm Beach, Broward and North Miami-dade counties.

Proud to be South Florida’s Best Heating Service!

Give us a call (954) 772 – 0079 now. We promise to treat you right.

BREAKING: Proposed Tax Credit Extension

Friday, December 10th, 2010

ACCA (Air Conditioning Contractors of America) have a new website feature helps contractors and Consumers Find Energy Efficiency Incentives – this wonderful page is worth a look here is the link:

FP&L (Florida Power & Light) Residential A/C Rebate Schedule link: Rebate Schedule.

Updated 04/26/12: The House Ways and Means Committee is scheduled to hear testimony today on various bills to extend the tax incentives that expired at the end of 2011 or will expire at the end of this year.

According to the Joint Tax Committee, there are approximately 70 tax incentives eligible for extension by Congress, many of them are targeted to help small business owners make capital investments in their businesses.

Members of the Congress will have the opportunity to testify in support of legislation to extend expiring tax provisions they have introduced or co-sponsored legislation this year. There is expected to be discussion of extending the tax credit for the installing higher efficiency HVAC equipment (Section 25C), construction of energy efficient homes (Section 45L), the 15 year straight line depreciation for qualified improvements to leasehold, restaurants, and retail buildings (Section 168), bonus depreciation for small businesses (Section 168), and increased expensing allowance to $500,000/$2,000,000 and expansion of Section 179.

As a member of the Residential Energy Efficient Tax Credit Industry Coalition, ACCA submitted testimony urging for the extension and expansion of the residential energy tax credit. The coalition is seeking a robust energy efficiency tax credit for qualified products, including furnaces, central air conditioners, and heat pumps, of 10 percent of the purchase price up to $1,000. The coalition believes that a $1,000 tax credit is generally the minimum incentive needed to motivate consumers to improve their homes by purchasing these higher-performing products, and to do so in sizable enough numbers to positively influence residential energy consumption.

To read the Member Proposals Related To Certain Tax Provisions That Either Expired In 2011 Or Will Expire In 2012, Click here. End of Update 04/26/12.

The Senate version of the tax extender package negotiated by the President Obama and Congressional leaders was released last night. As expected it includes a two year extension of the Bush tax cuts for all income levels, lower capital gains tax rate for investors, increases the exemption for the estate tax to $5 million per individual and lowers the tax rate to 35%, and enacts the Alternative Minimum Tax “patch” for 2010 and 2011, and other pro-small businesses provision.

Unfortunately, while the tax package does include an extension of the 25c nonbusiness energy tax credits, (the official IRS name for the homeowner’s energy efficiency tax credit), last minute modifications were made resetting the credit value to pre-Stimulus bill levels of 10% of the installed costs with maximum credit for all qualified retrofits of $500.

The tax package also reinstates the caps on equipment that were in place in 2006 and 2007. That means the maximum tax credits available to an eligible taxpayer for installing a qualified central air condition and heat pump are $300, and the maximum tax credit available for a qualified furnace or boiler is $150.

The tax extender package also reinstates the  lifetime credit caps which disqualify any homeowner who has claimed more than $500 in 25c tax credits since January 1, 2005, from any further credits.

Finally, the qualifying guidelines for natural gas and propane hot water boilers, and oil furnaces and hot water boilers are increased to 95% AFUE.

I’m still wading through all the language to see what other changes may be buried in the legislative text.

Still no word on whether or not substantive changes will allowed during Senate or House debate, more details about that will be forthcoming, including how you can support any efforts through grassroots action.

High Efficiency HVAC Systems | Mitsubishi Electric Cooling and Heating

Advanced Technology


Revolutionary cooling and heating. 

Mitsubishi Electric cooling and heating systems use advanced technologies to provide the ultimate in comfort control while minimizing energy consumption.

Some of the featured components of the systems include the following items: 

INVERTER-driven compressor systems use only the exact amount of energy needed to cool or heat an area. So you can save energy and money while enjoying complete control over your comfort year-round.

Zone control is one of the main technological benefits our systems offer, enabling you to control the temperature within any space that has an indoor unit installed. The ability to condition the spaces in use and not keep unoccupied spaces conditioned allows exceptional energy conservation. Individualized comfort control is available from one to eight rooms connected to a single outdoor unit. 

Standard and enhanced filtration systems provide air filtration that utilizes washable filters that can last up to 10 years; this feature is good both for you and the environment. Hybrid Catechin and blue-enzyme filters contained in each indoor unit remove allergens; each room has its own filter, therefore preventing cross contamination of air from room to room. Select systems incorporate an additional Platinum Catalyst filter for additional odor elimination 

standard filtrationenhanced filtration 

Hot-Start™ technology regulates the fan on the indoor unit so that it does not blow any air until the unit has reached the desired temperature, thus preventing drafts of cold air. 

i-see™ Sensor scans the lower portions of the room to detect hot or cold spots and to adjust temperature and airflow accordingly to maintain consistent comfort. 

H2i® technology, available on select systems, provides heating capability effectively and efficiently even when temperatures outside fall as low as -13º F.  This technology provides heat in extreme climates either to supplement existing systems or to serve as the main system in a new addition.

How It Works


The tried and true, smart technology behind the Mitsubishi Electric HVAC systems of today has evolved from our introduction in the 1950s. Our technology allows energy efficient, individual comfort control with minimal impact on your home since we offer both ductless and limited length ducted solutions. 

The technology behind Mitsubishi Electric HVAC systems is referred to in many different ways, including mini-split, multi-split, split-ductless, split-zoning, and variable refrigerant flow. Mitsubishi Electric split-zoning technology is the primary method for conditioning spaces in homes and commercial building around the world. That is why Mitsubishi Electric introduced this technology into North America over thirty years ago. 

Split-zoning systems allow each room (or space) using an individual indoor air-handler to be controlled independently from other rooms, thus providing individualized comfort control within each room of a home.

Mitsubishi Electric HVAC uses advanced technology to bring you quality products that provide the ultimate in comfort and control while minimizing energy consumption. Mitsubishi Electric systems use two small refrigerant lines plus power and control wiring to connect an outdoor unit to each individual air handler. This allows for easy installation in new construction and causes minimal disruption if you are renovating or retrofitting your home. 

The following features highlight the advanced technology, design, and components used in many Mitsubishi Electric HVAC systems: 

  • INVERTER Technology including INVERTER-driven compressors, electronic linear expansion valves, sensor and information processing components
  • Advanced processors and system control provide computing power in the indoor units, outdoor units, and remote controllers
  • Smart Coil™ design and operation uses multiple sensors to maintain coil temperature and regulates refrigerant superheat and subcooling for optimal capacity and performance
  • Enhanced filtration systems use multiple layers of filtration to improve indoor air quality (IAQ) by helping to remove allergens and odors
  • Hot-Start™ technology in heat pump systems prevents cool air from blowing during HEAT operation by regulating the fan on the indoor unit so that it does not blow any air until the unit coil has reached the correct operating temperature
  • i-See™ Sensor scans the upper and lower areas of a room to detect hot or cold spots and adjust temperature and airflow settings in real-time to maintain consistent comfort throughout the space.
  • Smart Controls on the wall or in your hand provide perfect function, temperature selection, and mode selection plus various timer and program options

With these and other technologies the Mitsubishi Electric comfort systems provide energy efficient, quiet and environmentally friendly solutions for your comfort needs. 

Easy Installation


Easy installation with little disorder or disruption to your life. 

  • Installing our system is easy for a contractor.
  • We offer different styles of indoor unit options to meet your personal needs.
  • Our outdoor units have a small footprint and can be placed conveniently or even hidden by foliage to complete the system.

Typical installation 

One of the great features of the Mitsubishi Electric system is its ease of installation. A qualified contractor can usually install it in about a day. There is little to no ductwork required so you don’t have to worry about disorder in your home interrupting your life or costly remodeling expenses. The sleek indoor unit mounts discreetly within the space, and a pair of refrigerant lines plus power and control wiring connect it to the outdoor unit through a small three-inch opening in the wall. 

system connection illustration 

Different styles of indoor units 

Ducted style. When a ducted model is selected as the indoor unit that best fits your need, it can easily be installed either in the ceiling or beneath the floor in a crawl space or basement. This style accommodates the use of short duct runs and registers to deliver and return air from the space to the unit. 

Wall-mounted style. A wall-mounted unit mounts high on a wall and is unobtrusive to the visual area within a room. The wall unit models are similar in white color but come in two different designs that have different features that enhance their functions within the space. 

Floor-standing style. The floor-standing model attaches to the wall six inches above the floor in areas where there is minimal or no wall space

Outdoor units complete the system

The outdoor units for each of the systems have a small physical footprint to take up as little space outside as possible and can even be hidden by foliage. With the use of LINE-HIDE line-set cover accessory, the lines connecting the indoor to outdoor unit can be cleanly hidden.  The PVC material of LINE-HIDE can be painted to match the exterior so that as little visual change as possible will be apparent.

For the past 30 years Mitsubishi Electric Cooling and Heating Solutions has enhanced people’s lives by improving comfort, conserving energy, and promoting environmental sustainability.

A U.S. subsidiary of Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Mitsubishi Electric is a leading marketer of variable refrigerant flow (VRF) zoning and split-zoning air-conditioning systems for both commercial and residential installations. VRF systems, which are highly efficient and can dramatically cut energy costs, are one of the fastest growing segments of the American air conditioning and heating market.

Based in Suwanee, GA, Mitsubishi Electric provides training and product support to contractors, engineers, and distributors across the country. The training programs are certified by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) and conform to the guidelines of the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
