Finally. You get to start thinking about turning on the air conditioning. After several cold and rainy weekends, you are excited that the air conditioning will finally be put into use. With temperatures in the high 80s, it has finally seemed like spring, and with just three weeks of school left you know that summer is just around the corner.
Whether you are looking forward to a new air conditioning installation or you are simply scheduling a HVAC maintenance appointment, few things signal the arrival of summer more than having to make sure that the air conditioning is ready to go. And whether it is a residential or a commercial HVAC appointment, the decision to work with reputable air conditioning installation, maintenance, and service teams. Warrantied by the manufacturer, in fact, certified air conditioning installation sometimes comes with an opportunity to get an affordable service contract as well.
HVAC Heating and Air Conditioning Installation Teams Provide Reliable and Warrantied Services
The best time to service and heating or cooling system is two to three weeks before they are needed. Home owners who want to extend the life of their HYVAC systems make sure that they schedule these service appointments well in advance. Consider some of these other facts and figures about the heating and cooling industry:
- Kids in swimsuits, lawns that need mowing, and the end of the school year are all signs of the approaching summer. Make sure that before all of the signs of summer arrive, you have made your HVAC service appointments.
- Estimates indicate that 41.5% of the energy consumption in the American home goes to the cost of heating.
- Every home owner who makes the decision to upgrade a home heating system is also making the decision to create a more efficient home. In fact, upgrading a furnace or boiler from 56% to 90% efficiency in a home in an average cold climate location will save 1.5 tons of carbon dioxide emissions every year if the home is heated with gas. If these new units are fueled by oil the carbon dioxide emissions savings can reach 2.5 tons.
- Purchasing a conventional and mid-efficiency furnace means that these systems will typically last last somewhere between 18 to 25 years. High efficiency furnaces, on the other hand, can last from 15 to 20 years.
- Installing insulation is singularly one of the best single steps to take if you want to reduce energy waste. Without adequate attic insulation, for instance, up to 20% of every dollar spent on home heating goes right through the roof if the right amount of insulation is not in place.
- Turning a thermostat back can save a home owner as much as 1% for each degree the thermostat is lowered in the winter if it is left that way for eight hours; the same is true if you turn the temperature up in the summer. If you go so far as to set your thermostat back 10 degrees when away at work this means that you could save 10% on a heating and cooling bill.
- Calls for no-heat problems in the winter seem to stem from a common cause. In fact, some HVAC experts say that as many as 75% of these no-heat calls in the winter are related to a lack of maintenance. Unfortunately, left unserviced, a furnace can stop working suddenly, leaving a family in the cold at the worst of times.
- One way to know that you may need to replace your home’s heating system if it’s more than 12 to 15 years old. Other indicators are systems that require frequent repairs, systems that do not supply sufficient warmth, cycles on and off irregularly, consumes increasing amounts of energy, and emits unusual noises.
- One way a home owner can save money over the long run and help the environment at the same time is to upgrade to a new high efficiency heating and cooling system. By eliminating high energy costs and improving energy efficiency a home owner can make great strides.
- Letting your heating and cooling system go unserviced can lead to problems. By having routine maintenance tune-ups, however, a home owner can increase the efficiency of the home’s system by as much as 25%.
