Ways Your Heating And Cooling System
May Be Stuck In The Ice Ages

Upgrade Your HVAC System Now To
Reap All The Modern Benefits!


Ok, so an AC unit stuck in the “Ice Ages” might sound nice during those hot summer nights, but trust us…it’s not. Outdated heating and cooling equipment can lead to a number of issues, cost you hundreds in utility bills, and even put your safety at risk.

The average HVAC system can last 15-25 years, but heating and cooling technology has come a long way over the last couple of decades – so it’s never too soon to reap the benefits.

Below are some reasons that your heating and cooling needs an upgrade and ways that you can benefit from installing new HVAC technology.


Your HVAC Unit Still Uses Outdated Coolant

Since the 1990s, when freon was found to deplete the ozone, the federal government has been on the hunt for an environmentally friendly coolant for HVAC systems. Though the coolant type changed throughout the decades that followed, research continues to develop more “green” coolants for our homes.

Today, R-410A is the industry standard and is used in most home HVAC systems. As the most environmentally friendly coolant to date, it has improved energy efficiency in homes by 30% since 1993.

So, during your next tune-up or HVAC maintenance, we recommend ensuring your technician is using R-410A. The planet will thank you!


Your HVAC System Has A Compressor
That Predates 2011

In 2011, the variable-speed compressor was invented and is used in most newly manufactured HVAC systems. Without getting too sciencey, variable-speed compressors use a special drive to control the speed of the HVAC unit.

This helps ensure your compressor (HVAC system) is working efficiently without wasting energy. You might be scratching your head, but this innovative type of compressor helps reduce HVAC energy use by 25 to 35 percent.

For you, this means lower utility bills, better heating and cooling comfort, and a lower carbon footprint – the trifecta of energy efficiency benefits.


You’re Not Taking Advantage Of
Smart Home Technology

You might be familiar with smartphones or smart TVs, but making your whole home “smart,” including your heating and cooling has countless advantages. Investing in a smart thermostat is the first step in updating your home and stepping into the 2020s.

Smart thermostats allow you to precisely control the temperature in your home from anywhere.

You just need to connect it to the accompanying smartphone app. Then, you essentially have your thermostat controls with you wherever you go.

You can accurately schedule when you want to cool or warm your home, what time, and to what temperature. So you don’t waste precious energy in your home when you’re not even there to enjoy it.

Smart thermostats can save you hundreds in utility costs and keep you comfortable year-round – without needless waste.
