4 Reasons You Should Get an HVAC

4 Reasons You Should Get an HVAC

If your air conditioner or furnace isn’t as efficient as it used to be, or you’re spending too much on repair bills, this may be the right time to replace it. You could even replace both with a fully integrated HVAC system.  It’s one of the best investments you can make for your home, and here are a few reasons why.

Improved Air Quality

HVAC stands for heating, ventilation and cooling. It’s the “ventilation” part that improves your air quality because an HVAC system does more than just heat or cool your home’s air. One crucial component is the air filter, which captures pollutants and contaminants from the air such as pollen, dust, animal dander, and depending on the filter, even fumes and bacteria. Today’s HVAC systems have variable, multi-speed motors and blowers that can direct the air as needed throughout your home. This proper airflow means every room consistently receives fresh, filtered air.

Consistent Humidity 

Along with fresh air, a complete HVAC system can maintain a constant humidity throughout your home. If the air is too humid, it could contribute to the growth of mold and mildew, and you might also see condensation on the windows that can cause moisture damage. Humidity that is too low can lead to trouble as well. Dry air can irritate skin and even make your family more susceptible to colds and flu. It can also damage furniture and wood flooring. Keeping an ideal humidity level affects your comfort as well. It helps you feel cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and can even improve the quality of your sleep.

Electricity Savings

There’s no question that today’s heating and cooling systems are more efficient than older ones. But since the components of HVAC systems work together, they can help you save even more. Because of multi-speed blowers and motors, the system will run at the lowest speed needed to maintain a consistent temperature. The constant airflow can also keep you comfortable at a lower temperature in the winter and a higher temperature in the summer.

Convenient Features

Smart thermostats can save you money on your utility bills since you can program them to adjust the temperature automatically depending on the time of day. For example, you can set a higher temperature during the summer months while you’re not home, then program it to cool the house just before you get back. Many smart thermostats can even be controlled remotely using your smartphone, and some can become part of a whole “smart home” system. However, if you have separate heating and cooling units instead of a modern, integrated HVAC system, this may not be possible. You might need separate thermostats for each.

Your HVAC service technician can fully explain the benefits of getting a whole-home, integrated heating, ventilation, and cooling system, as well as make sure you purchase the right size unit for your home with the features your family needs. When you consider the energy you will save and your family’s improved comfort, you’ll see that the investment is a wise choice.
