Split/Packaged Direct-Expansion (DX) Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps

With new energy-efficient units on the market today, there's no reason to put up with high energy costs from split/packaged DX air conditioning. FPL can help you pay for the most energy-efficient air conditioning for your business. You'll save on the equipment now, and enjoy lower energy bills for years to come.

Getting started

Here's how FPL's DX Air Conditioning Program works:

Step

Action

1

Qualifying new units include:

  • Air-, water- and evaporative-cooled air conditioning
  • Package terminal air conditioners or heat pump systems
  • Units that exceed the Florida Energy Efficiency Code

2

Install a qualifying new system and your business will receive an incentive on the cost of the job. The amount of your incentive varies based on the new unit's size, type and efficiency.

Breaking down the savings

The following chart illustrates how much you can save by upgrading your cooling system to a high-efficiency DX model.

For example, if you operate your business 4,500 hours a year, and upgrade from a 10.3 EER to a 13 EER (on a 10-ton unit), you could save $770 a year on cooling costs.
