HEATING & COOLING

hvac-furnace-circa-1910Your furnace and air conditioner are perhaps the hardest working and most valuable pieces of equipment in your home. Deciding when to replace them is a tough question to answer and the real answer depends on your needs. Your home’s heating, ventilation, air conditioning or HVAC System is much like your children, some will be on their way in their late teens and others will be living in the basement well into their thirties and beyond!

It’s not simply about Hot and Cold air anymore!

Making a purchase of a new furnace and air conditioning system will be a once every 20 year or so decision. So, take your time do research and ask lots of questions. Keep in mind that today’s HVAC systems are exactly that “systems”.  These systems work together to solve the air quality problems that affect your home and health.

In the end you will discover that the brand and product you choose is important, but the company that installs, warrantees and services the system is by far and away the most important factor in your decision.

Let’s Talk About Saving Money!

It is pretty rare that you have the opportunity to save money, increase the value of your home AND provide a healthier and more comfortable environment for your family. Today’s new furnace technology will save between $400 to $800 per year on the cost of gas and electricity. In most cases the monthly cost of financing a new system is less than the monthly utility savings. Ask our comfort advisors to show you how much you will save.

What are Ductless Cooling Systems?

Ductless systems connect an outdoor unit with an indoor unit to heat or cool one specific zone of a home without the use of ductwork.

Components of a Ductless System
Installing a ductless system is not only easy, but it allows for flexibility in where you deliver heating and cooling in your home without the use of ductwork. An outdoor unit is placed outside your home–often at ground level, but not always–and is connected to an indoor unit by small cables and a refrigerant line through a hole in the wall. The indoor unit is typically mounted high on the wall of the room and can be pre-set to run automatically or be adjusted by a remote control.

Mini-Split Versus Multi-Split
The mini-split ductless system controls one room or zone by connecting one outdoor unit to one indoor unit. A multi-split ductless system can connect one outdoor unit to up to five indoor units—depending on the indoor and outdoor model—letting you control the heating and cooling in several zones or rooms independently of each other.

Where Ductless is Needed
A ductless system is a great solution for homes without a central heating/cooling system or when a room is added onto a house or an attic is converted to living space. Instead of extending the home’s existing ductwork, a ductless system can provide efficient heating and cooling at a lower operational cost.

A Few Questions to Ask Yourself

Am I comfortable? The new furnaces of today are much more sophisticated than even just 10 years ago. Technology like variable speed motors and modulating gas valves will go a long way to making the homes’ heating more evenly distributed than ever before. This will result in a more comfortable home and lower operating costs.

You Deserve Better Indoor Air Quality

hvac-better-indoor-air-qualityThe air inside your home is some of the most contaminated air you breathe. Depending on the home you are breathing air that is 5 to 20 times more contaminated than the air outside! Combine this with a home that has children with asthma or allergies and a pet or two then being in your own home is one of the most dangerous places to be.  Consider an air cleaner as part of your HVAC system.

Increase Comfort and Energy Savings

hvac-increase-comfortYour home is a lot like your body. It needs to stay properly hydrated in order to maintain the health and comfort of those living in it.

Air that is too dry can act like a giant sponge, soaking moisture up from everything that it touches in your home – woodwork, wood floors and furnishings – not to mention symptoms of dry skin, chapped lips, dry nasal passages and static electricity.  Consider a humidifier as part of your HVAC system.

Fresh Air is Always Best

hvac-fresh-air-bestStill smelling breakfast at dinnertime? If you have lingering odors in the home, it’s a sign that more ventilation is needed to bring in fresh air and remove stale air. Ventilation, air-cleaning products, and bathroom ventilation controls offer energy efficient home options that help get odors out and fresh air in.

Whole-house and portable dehumidifiers work to remove excess moisture and introduce fresh, filtered air, not only increasing comfort, but also reducing heating bills because humidified air feels warmer, so you’ll be able to turn your thermostat up for energy savings.
