3 Benefits of Upgrading to a High-Efficiency Heating & Cooling System
Your Cincinnati area home’s regular air conditioning system does the job, but does it do a great job? A heating and cooling system should not only keep your home comfortable, but it should also not cost you a fortune to do so when it comes to maintenance, repairs and energy costs.
Right now, before spring turns into a sweltering summer, is the perfect time to consider installing a high efficiency air conditioning and furnace system. Schneller & Knochelmann Plumbing, Heating & Air explains how it could benefit your home three-fold this year and beyond.
You’ll Save Money Over the Years
Installing a brand new system isn’t always cheap, but it will cost you less in the long run. Older, less efficient systems often require air conditioning repair and maintenance, which can add up over time. New high efficiency systems tend to have longer lifespans and require less repairs due to their ability to heat and cool your home while operating at lower stress loads. And since they require less energy to keep your home comfortable, they end up saving you money when it comes to your energy bills. This is especially important since air conditioners consume more energy than any other piece of equipment in your home.
High efficiency systems with high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratings, or SEERs, sometimes come with incentives and rebates, as well. Many name brand manufacturers offer rebates, and sometimes the government offers incentives, like tax breaks. These offers can drastically reduce the cost of a new system if you take advantage of them.
Your Family Will Be More Comfortable
Like we mentioned above, high efficiency systems are usually much more efficient than old models. They can provide your home with a more consistent temperature throughout your home thanks to a more even airflow. This means you’ll be more comfortable wherever you are in your home.
High efficiency systems can also remove moisture from the air more effectively. These systems are more controlled, running longer cycles at lower temperatures. This helps cool the air more comfortably, and can deter mold and other airborne problems.
You’ll Be a Friend to The Environment
Since high efficiency systems consume less energy, they are also better for the environment. These systems emit fewer greenhouse gases and use less fossil fuel because they take less energy to operate. Not only will you be helping your wallet, but your community as well.
