  • Common Heating Mistakes Homeowners Make

    Many homeowners are installing energy-saving thermostat settings to lower their heating and air conditioning costs. But in some cases, manually setting your thermostat can actually lead to greater inefficiencies, which means higher energy costs!

    This video from Kudzu.com will show you how a programmable thermostat can take the guesswork out of energy-efficient heating and cooling. Not only will it help you save money, it’s also simple to install and fully automated!

  • How Long Do HVAC Systems Last Before they Need to be Replaced?

    You may have heard that replacing your home’s HVAC system may help to lower energy costs, enhance comfort, and reduce repair costs. While this may be true, you may want to think about whether HVAC replacement is the best option. Let’s take a look at how long HVAC systems typically last and how you’ll know if it’s time to replace your furnace or air conditioner .

    While heating and air conditioning systems range in quality and longevity, a typical HVAC system will last up to 15 years. However, this estimate involves making several assumptions about the quality of care your HVAC system receives, how much use it gets, and how efficient your HVAC system was to begin with. For example, an HVAC system that is meticulously cared for, receives regular professional maintenance, and has its furnace filter and other components replaced regularly may last much longer. Homeowners who don’t even know what a furnace filter is have to consider replacement much sooner.

    When deciding whether to replace an HVAC system, you should always consult an HVAC repair professional . Here are some of the factors he or she will consider when evaluating your heating and cooling system:

    1.      Energy Efficiency: Given your HVAC system’s SEER rating and AFUE ratio, a professional will be able to determine whether your HVAC system is costing you more than it should.

      2.      Age: If your HVAC system is approaching the end of its projected lifespan, replacement may be the most economical option. If it will continually break down and require repairs, it may actually be less expensive to replace the entire system.

      3.      Overall Performance: Some HVAC systems will become noisy, unresponsive, or simply unusable as time goes on. If you aren’t happy with it, then replacement may be a better option.

  • Why Routine HVAC Inspections are so Important

    Your residential HVAC system can be likened to a person’s lungs in many ways: they provide access to fresh air, expel harmful gases, and can promote health and comfort. Also like your lungs, your HVAC system needs to be regularly inspected and maintained by a professional. But instead of a doctor, you’ll need an HVAC repair and maintenance technician! Here are some ways that regular HVAC maintenance and inspections can promote home health and comfort.

     

    Air Conditioners

    1.      Prepare for Changing Seasons

    As the seasons change, so will your heating and air conditioning needs. But before your HVAC system switches between full-time heating and air conditioning, an inspection is necessary to ensure effective operation and efficiency. Having your HVAC system inspected at least twice a year (before the heating and cooling season) will maximize comfort when you need it most.

      2.      Reduce Energy Costs

    Furnaces and air conditioners that are in poor health will also inevitably consume more energy. The less efficient the individual components of your HVAC system are, the less efficient the entire HVAC system will be. To minimize your heating and air conditioning costs, have your HVAC system inspected for inefficiencies regularly.

      3.      Maintain Your System

    In addition to minimizing the cost of HVAC operation, you’ll also want to minimize the cost of HVAC repairs. By making small repairs, you’ll extend the life of the air conditioner and prevent costly breakdowns from occurring. This can save you hundreds of dollars over the life of your HVAC system.

      4.      Ensure Your Safety

    Finally, routine HVAC inspections can help keep your household stay safe. Heaters and air conditioners left in disrepair are more likely to have exhaust problems, which allows harmful emissions such as carbon monoxide to leak into the home.
