What is a PIC?
A participating independent contractor (PIC) is an independent business you can hire to install your new A/C system. These businesses have agreed to comply with FPL’s program standards but are not employed by FPL.
Do I need a new A/C?
You should consider a new, more energy-efficient A/C if your current system:
- Is more than 10 years old
- Needs frequent repairs
- Runs longer to keep your home cool
Can a new A/C save me money on my bill?
Depending on the size and efficiency of your current A/C, a new system could save you money on your energy bill. For example, if you upgrade an older three-ton A/C with a new, higher efficiency model, you could save around $377 annually.1
What is a straight cool/air cooled A/C system?
A straight cool/air cooled A/C is one that includes a cooling cycle only. A gas, oil or electric strip heater may be included, but it does not have a separate heating cycle. This is a less expensive system compared to others that have a heating cycle, and it’s perfect for mild winters.
What is a SEER rating?
SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio and is a measure of an A/C’s average annual cooling efficiency. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the unit.

1Costs are estimates based on South Florida area average of 2,800 annual A/C cooling operating hours and current rate of 10 cents per kWh.
