An Heating and Air Conditioning upgrade is a considerable investment in your home. Consider the following advantages when deciding whether or not to upgrade.
Increase Home Value
If you are thinking of selling your home either now or in the future, an Heating and Cooling upgrade can not only increase the value of your house but also entice home buyers to give your home more consideration.
Homebuyers are reluctant to buy a house with an aging roof, furnace, water heater, or air conditioner. An Heating and Air Conditioning upgrade can make the difference between a quick sale and a house that languishes on the market for months.
Get a Quieter Heating and Air Conditioning System
Aging Heating and AC systems can develop rattles and other sounds as temperature changes gradually warp metal components and as the combustion process becomes less efficient. New model furnaces and air conditioning units use new technology to run quieter and to insulate the home from the sounds they create. You can enjoy quiet heating and cooling with a new Heating and Cooling system.
Heat and Cool a Larger Area
If you are adding a room to your house or adding heat and air conditioning vents to an attic, garage, or other potential living space, you are increasing the workload on your Heating and Air Conditioning system and forcing it to run longer to keep your home cool.
Whenever you increase the square footage of climate-controlled space in your home, it is a good idea to have your Heating and A/C system professionally inspected to ensure that it can handle that increased workload. If not, you should install an Heating and Cooling system upgrade with a larger capacity.
Improve Air Quality
Gas furnaces become less efficient as they age. The air intake valve may become clogged. Soot and other impurities build up in the combustion chamber. The blower motor might not move hot or cool air around as efficiently as it once did. Together, these inefficiencies add up to a less consistent mix of fuel and air in the combustion chamber.
Incomplete combustion leads to more toxic gasses in the combustion chamber and causes the furnace to run longer and burn more fuel. If the flue pipe is clogged, gases might be escaping the furnace from other, more dangerous routes. If the heat exchanger is damaged, it might be allowing carbon monoxide and other toxins to circulate through the house.
Replacing the Heating and Air Conditioning system reduces the concentration of toxic gasses that the furnace produces through combustion because the furnace will be more efficient. Replacing the heat exchanger and ductwork will improve airflow and make it more likely that any toxic gasses leave the house harmlessly.
The air conditioning system can also be a source of contaminants that reduce air quality, such as when mold enters the ductwork. Dirty filters can release bacteria and allergens into the air.
More Reliable Heating and Cooling
Your Heating and AC system will be able to heat and cool your home more quickly if they are working efficiently. Newer ductwork and an up-to-date blower motor make it easier for climate-controlled air to reach distant parts of the house. The result is a more consistent, uniform temperature.
If you upgrade from an older Heating and Air Conditioning system to a mini-split air conditioner system and heat pump, you can direct hot and cold air only to the rooms where you need them most. Since each wall unit only has to handle climate control for a single room, it will not have to struggle to generate airflow or control the air temperature.
Reduce Safety Risks
The improvements to air quality reduce the risks of respiratory problems and poisoning due to contaminants in the air spreading through the Heating and AC system. Just as importantly, more efficient combustion in a new combustion chamber, driven by a new pilot light, reduces the risk of fire and explosion. Protect your family with an Heating and Cooling system upgrade this year.
Increased Fuel Efficiency
As houses age, they often become drafty in winter and stuffy in the summer. You might find yourself using more fuel and electricity to keep the air at a pleasant temperature. Your Heating and AC system is most likely contributing to this problem as heating and cooling processes become less efficient and the ductwork and filters become clogged.
At a certain point, the flaws and inefficiencies in your Heating and A/C system will build up to the point where replacing it is the only sure way to correct these flaws. A new Heating and Air Conditioning model will get rid of age-related Heating and AC problems and allow you to take advantage of more efficient Heating and AC system designs.
Be sure to choose an energy-efficient system with a high seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER). One feature of modern Heating and Air Conditioning systems is an energy recovery ventilator (ERV) that transfers heat and moisture from the Heating and AC system to incoming air from outside the home. In the summer, the system cools the air and removes humidity; in the winter, it humidifies dry air and adds heat.
Use Alternative Fuel Sources
In recent decades, homeowners, businesses, and governments have pushed for environmentally friendly and sustainable energy sources, such as:
- solar power
- geothermal energy
- wind power
An older Heating and Air Conditioning system that burns natural gas might have been acceptable in the 20th century or the early 2000s. Now that we are well into the 2020s, it is important to reevaluate our carbon footprints and the sources of energy that we rely on.
As you consider an Heating and AC upgrade, think about the benefits of switching to an electric furnace that could draw power from wind or solar energy or a geothermal system that uses the earth itself as a heat source or heat sink.
Integrated Smart Technology
Newer furnaces, heaters, air conditioners, and thermostats can connect to the internet through your home’s wi-fi network, empowering you to change thermostat settings or heating and cooling modes using a smartphone app. Diagnostic systems can automatically alert you to safety hazards, troubleshoot common problems, and remind you to schedule routine maintenance.
