Efficiency and Central HVAC Systems
The most efficient heating and cooling system you can have today is a central one. While there are uses for window air conditioning units and space heaters, you really get the most bang for your buck when you go with a central heating and air conditioning system. Space heaters use up a good portion of electricity and window units are only really useful for the room in which they reside. Central air and heating systems, on the other hand, heat and cool the entire house, as well as singular portions of it.
Most new and recent homes will come with central heating and cooling standard, but this is not the case with a lot of older homes. Central heating is wonderful to have during the long, cold winter nights and a central cooling system is great for those hot summer days. Luckily for those who don’t have central heating and air conditioning installed in their homes, there are many options available in regards to financing and tax rebates and credits. With the social shift towards energy efficiency and green technologies, now is the best time to take advantage of the available options to get one’s heating and cooling systems upgraded.
Every central heating system has a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating. These ratings are important when looking for new equipment or installations. The higher the rating, the better off one is when it comes to their monthly energy bills. These ratings aren’t necessarily constant, since the systems themselves begin to require maintenance as time goes on. For this, heating and air maintenance is required to get everything working back at factory standards, increasing the energy efficiency back up to par and restoring the SEER rating.
We all want to be warm during the cold winter nights, and we all want to stay cool during the scorching summer days. Central heating and air conditioning systems are the way to achieve just that without having to pay through the nose every month in utility bills. Older systems can also benefit greatly from heating and air maintenance, especially if they haven’t been maintenanced in the last year. Typically, one would want their heating and cooling systems maintenanced once a year in order to keep them running at par. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case.
If you haven’t had your heating and air conditioning systems maintenanced this year, than it’s probably a good idea to give us a call and see how we can help you out. We’re pretty good at maintenancing older units and getting them back up and running at peak efficiency.
