Air Conditioning

Benefits of a higher SEER Air Conditioner

Efficiency is expressed as the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, or SEER. The minimum SEER for a split system central air conditioner allowed today is 13, so look for units with SEER ratings of 13 or greater. The higher the SEER, the more you can lower your energy costs. 13 Seer units are mostly installed in northern climates, but higher SEER units although cost more upfront, can definitely reduce electrical power usage over time.

What are the advantages of a two stage Air Conditioner?

Air conditioners are sized to keep up with the peak demand in the middle of summer. There are only a few days per year when the peak temperatures are actually attained. This means for most of the year, the air conditioner is over-sized for the space it was cooling. By choosing a two stage option, the air conditioner will operate on the first stage running more efficiently and at a lower sound level.

How long to install an Air Conditioner?

Air Conditioner installations can vary a great deal. How much work to bring the installation up to code and the working conditions both inside and outside the home are definite factors. Generally speaking, most Air Conditioner installations are completed inside six hours.

Are permits required for a new Air Conditioner?

Permits are not only required, but you as a homeowner should insist that the air conditioner gets inspected. Installations that do not meet code can cause serious problems and even death. Furthermore, your homeowners insurance does have the legal right to not provide compensation in the event that the poor installation caused the loss. Permits in most areas cost approximately $100.00-$150.00 and for the peace of mind, having the installation up to code and your insurance intact is well worth it.

Air Filtration

There may be more in your home than you know. In fact, the air inside your home can be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside. While today’s better insulated homes do a great job of keeping out the elements, they also hold in airborne particles that can aggravate breathing difficulties.

Benefits

Benefits of having a Heated Garage.

 

-Never come out to a cold vehicle again.
-Reduce your fuel costs by not needing to let your vehicle warm up.
-Reduce maintenance costs on vehicles, associated with starting a cold vehicle. ( example less wear on battery and starter)
-Store paints and other household liquids without the risk of freezing.
-Use your garage as a workshop in comfortable temperature.
-Adds value to your home.

Convection Vs Radiant

A convection type heater warms the space by blowing air across a heat exchanger just like a home furnace. The heat exchanger warms the air, and the fan circulates the warm air throughout the room. However, the fan stirs up dust and makes noise. You also can lose most of your heat if you open the garage door to move a car in or out.

A radiant type heater works off of the same principle as the sun. It produces infrared light which warms the objects in the garage instead of warming the air. This is quite beneficial as most of the heat is retained when moving a car in or out. This type is more energy efficient than a convection heater. It is relatively silent, and does not stir up dust with a fan. Radiant heat does have some drawbacks, though. It only warms objects that are in the direct path of the heater, and if you are working in an area that is “shaded” from the heater you will not feel warm.

Thermostats

Programmable

Programmable thermostats have become hugely popular in recent years due to their energy saving benefits, improved comfort control and convenience. Programmable thermostats save energy and money on utility bills, without compromising comfort by allowing residents to set home temperatures according to various different factors.

Wifi

Wifi thermostats allow complete control-ability by making it simple for a home owner to control, monitor and receive alerts from a thermostat from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.

Wireless

Wireless thermostats can be mounted anywhere within the home without the use of wires connecting them to the furnace and can be moved to a location of your preference easily.

Communicating

Communicating thermostats have the ability to communicate with your furnace and display actual furnace run times and possible furnace issues right at the thermostat.
