New Year, New Heating System in 2022

Install a New Heater This Year!

Heaters are important for homes located in cold regions! As the winter season continues to drop in temperature, revealing snow and ice, heaters are a great addition to a home. This year, homeowners should install a new heater!

When Should Heaters Be Replaced?

Sadly, heaters don't last forever. After a few years and use, heaters begin to fall apart. However, there are some ways homeowners can notice the signs. 

Homeowners should replace heaters using heater replacement services. If there are large leaks or cracks in the heaters, it is time to either replace the heater or contact a heater repair technician. However, homeowners can't repair heaters because of how expensive they are most of the time.

Another sign is if the heat in a home no longer works. If a homeowner is struggling to heat their home, it may be a problem with their heater system. However, the only way to know is to call a heating company to ask for advice. Sometimes, it is a small fix with the thermostat, but it needs to be replaced if it no longer works.

How to Choose the Right Heaterpros cons

With so many choices, it is hard to choose the right heater! Homeowners should start by researching the types of heaters that exist along with the pros and cons of each system.

The most common and popular heating system is a furnace. The furnace works by pushing hot air throughout a home that has ducts to travel with. The ducts are placed in each room, and the system is powered by electricity. Furnaces used to be powered by coal and fire but have changed drastically.

There are also boilers. Instead of using only electricity, boilers use water and heat to create steam, and the steam then travels and brings heat throughout a home. Boilers are rare in the South and mainly found in Northern cold states that need more heat.

Another heater option is heat pumps. These heat pumps do not use ducts to travel around. Instead, the pumps create heat with electricity. The pumps find cool and warm air that is located outside and push it into a home. This uses the least amount of energy but is harder to repair.


Always Maintain New Heater Systems

To decrease the chances of a furnace replacement, homeowners should maintain their new heater systems. All systems require some form of maintenance, or it can be dangerous. During the cold months, having a heat source is important, especially if there is the possibility of a storm.

Not only is it dangerous because the new heater may not work, but because without cleaning and maintenance, dust, dirt, mold, and bugs can get stuck in the filter. The things in the filter get blown back into the air, which can make people feel very sick.

Finding The Best Heating & Cooling Deals This Year's Black Friday

Essential Tips for the Best HVAC Deals this November

It’s that time of year again: when companies and stores open their doors at midnight and offer huge deals and cost savings on seemingly anything and everything. That’s right. Black Friday is right around the corner, and its never too soon to start planning!

But while it seems like buying a new TV or the best model of smartphones could be an amazing score, one of the best things you can do this Black Friday for your wallet is look for the deals and options you can find on HVAC systems. Not only do you save money, but you can enjoy plenty of other benefits too!

HVAC Installation Deals

Not only could a new HVAC system save you money in energy efficiency, it’s often better for the environment, and also your health and comfort in your home, too.

If this sounds like something you’re interested in, look to popular name brands such as Trane or Lennox International. They often have Black Friday deals on HVAC installation, saving you even more money on a system that will already be a cost-saving to you and your utility bills.

Ductless HVAC Options

But for some homeowners, a new HVAC system is out of the question. Perhaps it’s too expensive, or, more likely, it just wouldn’t work with your existing home. Maybe you don’t have the attic space, or perhaps you’ve recently added an addition to your home but don’t want to replace the entire HVAC system for one new room.

Don’t worry! That’s where mini-split systems come in handy! Mini-split systems don’t rely on an existing central unit, which means they’re an alternative choice for many homes. They also come with a lot of benefits:

  • Great for Small Spaces: Because these systems don’t require ductwork, they’re great for adding heating or cooling to a recent home addition or to a smaller house. Not to mention a home without an attic space
  • Better Air Quality: Because this system doesn’t use ducts, it pulls air directly from outside, limiting allergens that can cause you discomfort
  • Simple Installation: And again, because there’s no ductwork, installing this system is often a lot easier
  • Energy and Cost Savings: The ductless system focuses on cooling or heating individual rooms or spaces, resulting in energy and cost savings for you

If a new HVAC system doesn’t work for your home, look to a ductless system as a possible option.

Consider Improved Your Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality is one of the most important, unseen, aspects of homeownership. Poor air quality can impact your comfort and your health, which is why it’s a good idea to check out the Black Friday deals on home air purifiers. Air purifiers can help remove impurities from the air in your home, from dust, pollen, dander to even smoke, carbon monoxide, and radon.
