You trust your AC system to cool your Florida house… now trust your AC unit to heat your home’s water for free (or almost free)!

As a resident of Pinellas county, Polk county, or Hillsborough county, did you know that you are currently paying the electric company to run your AC system to take heat out of your house and dump it outside your residence? Did you know that most FL homeowners have a hot water heater that is also powered by electricity? In other words, you are probably paying the electric company to also heat your hot water for warm showers, dishwasher cycles, and washing machines.

Air Care offers the AQUEFIER® Heat Recovery Unit to save you money on your monthly electricity bills.

Not only is the AQUEFIER® Heat Recovery Unit environmentally friendly, but the device is cost-effective and relatively straight-forward to install (depending on the set up of your home).

We all know that Florida heat is powerful. The heat from your AC system can actually be used to generate / supply all of your hot water needs (especially during a hot summer in the Tampa / St. Pete area). A heat recovery unit is simple device that will save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars (depending on how long you stay in your current home).

How does a heat recovery unit work?

aquefier unit product

A small pump is connected to your water heater. When your AC system is running, water is pulled from the coolest part of your water heater and moved to a heat exchanger where the water is heated by the hot refrigerant from your AC system. The heated water is then sent back to your water heater. Heat recovery units are a proven technology 500,000 units sold over the past 25 years. Adding a heat recovery unit to your home will NOT void the warranty on either your air conditioner, heat pump, or water heater.

21 Years of Savings

I’ve saved money on my electric bill every year with my heat recovery unit. After 21 years of savings, I just had to have one installed when I moved to my new home. Now with our electric prices still climbing, I’m glad to know that every time I hear my air conditioning come on, I’m still saving money. You need to get one for your home too!

Surprisingly Simple

I can’t thank you for all your help in the replacement of my Hot Water Recovery pump. Doing business with you was a pleasure and rest assured that I will pass it along to my anyone in need of your services. The phone calls in “trouble-shooting” my problem, ordering the pump, and then walking me thru the installation procedure…….well you made it surprisingly simple. I’m not sure if I mentioned to you, but this is my third home that I have installed the Aquefier Hot Water Recovery “system” and I would not have a home without one! Having my A/C heat my hot water for FREE, making my A/C run / cool even more efficient, and above all, lowing my electric bill, especially here Florida, it’s a “win-win” for me. I’ve actually been a walking advertisement for this unit ever since my first install. It is simple GREAT! Thanks again.

Trouble and Maintenance Free

We had the heat recovery unit installed when we built our home 10 years ago. We live in south Florida and our “24/7” A/C season runs April thru October. During that time I literally turn off the breaker to the hot water heater. The HRU provides what seems like unlimited and extremely hot water. No doubt the unit has paid for itself many times over. I would never consider not having one. The HRU has been trouble and maintenance free. We love it. Thanks for a great product.

Great Product

I just wanted to let you know that my builder installed one of your heat recovery systems when we built the home in 2004. It is a great system. My home is 2500SF heated, and I live here with my wife and three kids. We are able to completely turn off our electric hot water heater in early May and keep it off until early October. Even then, we only need the electric heater on for about 4 hours a day. This is a great product. Too bad more people are not aware of it.

Dear Customers,

If you had told me, back in 1988 when I founded Air Care Heating & A/C Inc., that this family-owned and operated company would become such a big part of the community, I wouldn't have believed it.

During that time, we have been lucky to have met and served so many loyal customers, and also to have had so many trained and certified technicians join our team. 

Together, we built a foundation of trust. It has been an incredible journey, and we can’t thank you all enough.

It’s time to share some news with you all: I’m retiring.

Reliant has now bought Air Care and is absorbing the company into theirs. Although there are many bigger companies buying up little ones right now, I chose to sell to Reliant. I’d love to tell you why.

Firstly, their values align with ours.  I was impressed with the integrity and ethics that they show. 

Secondly, they’re a family-run business, just like us.

Finally, they’re professionals that you can trust. The Reliant team are capable, well-paid, highly skilled men. And like us, they care. They pride themselves on high standards, quality products, workmanship, and customer service. They never use subcontractors and believe in treating their team exceptionally well. The customer is their first priority, as their testimonials show. 

The Reliant team is led by Travis, a 20+ year HVAC professional. 

You can reach out to Reliant for everything from maintenance to new installations, they offer a full service throughout Pinellas, Hillsborough, Pasco, and Sarasota. 

They’re good people, and you’ll be in good hands. 

So, thanks again for a wonderful 35 years, it has been a pleasure to serve you all.

Best wishes,

Lawrence W. Harkins III, (Retired) Owner of Air Care
