If you’re getting ready to upgrade your HVAC system, you’re probably familiar with gas furnace and electric heating options, but heat pumps are becoming more popular. These are especially useful for Florida Air Express customers because we don’t see harsh winters like those in the north. Although you may spend most of your attention thinking of ways to keep your home cool in our humid climate, there should still be a plan in place for colder months (even if only short-lived). With over 30 years of HVAC experience, our team is ready to help you make the best decision for your family.
Understanding Heat Pumps
A heat pump is an HVAC system component that is installed outside of your home. This is similar to how your air conditioner works, and it does the same process to heat your home. Heat pumps are electric-powered and use refrigerants to transfer heat. When temperatures are cold, the heat strips help the heat pump regulate your home’s comfort level. These can be especially useful when you’re looking to be as efficient as possible and save money on your utility bill. Heat pumps also get a little extra help from heat strips. Heat strips are installed as a part of the overall heat pump unit to back it up when it needs more heating capacity. Heat strips are needed during more prolonged than usual run times on your heat pump, increased demand during cold spells, and when the heat pump needs defrosting. By outfitting your pump with heating strips, we can prepare for any drop in temperature, even for an extended time.
Expert Heat Pump Service
When it comes to heating expertise in the Polk County area, you don’t want to leave your installation to a company that doesn’t understand our local climate. The short-lived cold spells and humidity mean that you will have a different upgrade/installation process than customers in other Florida areas. HVAC heating systems is never a one size fits all approach. You need to work with a heating and cooling contractor that understands how Florida weather ebbs and flows. The Florida Air Express team can help set up your heat pump and strips so that they are ready to go when temperatures get chilly. If you want to be sure you have enough heating capacity, heat pump systems can work well for this reason. Florida Air Express can also install a separate gas furnace for those who want to be warm on the coldest of days in the winter.
We offer year-round heat pump repair as well. When you call us out to take a look at your heating unit, you will receive the same full hvac diagnostic report for your heating system that you would on your air conditioner.

Even though we are in Florida, there are occasions throughout the year where you may want to knock the chill out of your home. Heaters don’t get much run time as your air conditioner will in Polk County, but you should still have a plan for when the temperatures drop late in the year. Florida Air Express isn’t just your neighborhood air conditioning expert; we can keep your home comfortable throughout the winter as well. Here are the ways that we can help you achieve comfort year-round.
Heat Pump Options
Unlike most states to the north, we don’t heat our home with gas as often. Some customers may purchase furnaces for heating, but that isn’t really necessary for the temperatures we see and the length of time we see them. Heating your home can be suitably accomplished with a heat pump installation. Florida Air Express can install a heat pump that is both energy efficient and appropriate for the size of your home. If you think of the way an air conditioner works, a heat pump is the same concept. When temperatures are cold, the heat strips help the heat pump regulate your home’s comfort level. Heat strips come on for three main reasons: longer than usual run times, increased demand during cold spells, and to defrost the heat pump.
We can also install a gas furnace if you prefer a radiant heating option. If you’re unsure of what can work best for you, one of our expert team members would be glad to walk you through the process.
Repair and Installation
Like our full-scale air conditioning installations, we give just as much attention to connecting your heat pump and gas furnace. We can help you repair or upgrade your unit. Typically, if your air conditioner is old, your heating system will be too. We suggest getting them upgraded around the same time to be as energy-efficient as possible throughout the year. We offer heat pump upgrades regardless of the time of year. If you’re renovating your home, consider installing a new Air Conditioning system at the same time.
If you’re interested in upgrading your heating system to a furnace, we recommend the Comfortmaker brand. We exclusively work with this brand because of the exceptional quality and warranty options. They offer three furnace lines, including the premium ion series, the standard QuietComfort series, and the value Performance series. Depending on your budget and your home’s size, we can pick a new furnace that’s perfect for your family.
