“You're hot then you're cold, You're yes then you're no, You're in then you'

An old, temperamental heating and cooling system can be a pain in the neck on so many levels. It’s inherently inefficient which puts a hurt on your wallet. It’s an inconvenience, in that one minute you feel on the verge of hypothermia, and the next minute you swear you’ve been relocated to a sweat lodge. These old units, with their “bangs” and “clangs,” are jarring. They can also be tremendous space hogs where square footage is coveted. The best way to overcome all these issues is by replacing that old furnace and A.C. with a modern system that incorporates the latest technology common among contemporary HVAC unit models. Here’s a handful of some of the benefits a new system provides.

Serious Savings: About half of the energy used in the average home is relegated to heating and cooling. Current furnace models commonly yield over 90% AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) which leave older units in the dust in terms of efficiency - this is a win for the environment as well as your wallet.

Programmable Thermostats: These are quickly becoming the norm due to the fine-tuned temperature precision they afford homeowner’s day and night, whether at home or away. The capabilities of programmable thermostats differ among models, but even the most basic can “learn” your comfort preferences, scale down during sleep hours, and some can be manipulated via Wi-Fi when you’re away from home.

Zoned Control: By dividing a home into different temperature “zones” these separate areas are able to maximize comfort by a thermostat designated for that particular zone in the house. This means if you’re in the kitchen you can dial down the temperature in the upstairs bedroom when it’s unoccupied. By regulating dampers within the existing ductwork to modulate temperatures for each zone, you can easily combat inconsistent temps throughout your home.

Quality Airflow: Variable speed motors come standard among new, high-efficient HVAC systems, which enable consistent air flow all around the home. Superior air flow means a more stable temperature. It also helps maintain cleaner air with the help of a quality filter by trapping airborne particles during cycling, which is great for people with allergies. It also aids in the fight against mold and mildew proliferation.

The standard systems of today are smaller, quieter, and super-efficient compared to the units of even ten years ago. The dollars you recoup in terms of energy savings usually cover your initial investment in only a few years.
