Well, the election is finally over and as if we didn’t hear entirely too much of everyone’s political feelings before the election, it is fair to say we are hearing even more of them now. Have no fear; you have entered a safe zone where no opinions will be given. Instead, we will go over the major pros of a new HVAC system.
Most people think they will just save money on energy cost, and while that is correct there are all kinds of other benefits that new systems can have for your home. It’s like when you buy a new car. You can get one with just a few bells and whistles or go for the big grand super-deluxe version that may not even need you in it to drive down the road.
Here are a few of the different options that new HVAC equipment can come with and it’s up to you to decide what works best for your home:
- Whole-House Dehumidifiers – Dehumidifiers get a gold star for all their usefulness. When you have humidity under control in your home you’re A/C or heat pump will not have to work as hard which, as you know, translates to using less energy. Not only will your home feel less hot and sticky, but also you will have the benefit of better air quality and fewer issues with mold and other allergens. All of that adds up to you being more comfortable at home.
- Fan-only Switch – This is great for the times of year that you do not need heat or air; the perfect time to “air out” your house. However, most of us cannot leave the windows open for 24 hours so this fan switch allows you to just have a blower on to circulate ar.
- Automatic Fan Delay – If you are into maximizing every penny you spend, this is a feature for you! A blower fan will automatically run for a short amount of time at the end of every HVAC equipment cycle to ensure that all your conditioned air (either warm or cool) will be pushed through your ducts instead of being wasted.
There are several other options worth noting such as zoning systems, variable-speed air handlers and variable-speed compressors. If you have any questions about what features will be best for you, give Carmines a call at 203-791-8089.
