If you are considering purchasing a new heating and air conditioning system, an energy-efficient model could save you up to 50% on your utility bill. Your heating and air conditioning contractor should be able to give you energy fact sheets for different types, models, and designs to help you compare energy usage. For furnaces, look for high Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) ratings. The national minimum is 80% AFUE, but there are ENERGY STAR models on the market that exceed 95% AFUE. For air conditioners, look for a high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER). The current minimum is 14 SEER for central air conditioners. ENERGY STAR models are 15 SEER or more.

With the ice and snow in the Charlotte area this weekend be sure to look at your outdoor unit for ice or snow buildup, especially if you have a heat pump. You can carefully attempt to remove any frozen buildup by pouring warm water over the unit to melt the snow and ice. Do not use any sharp objects to pick or knock the ice off, this could cause severe damage to the unit

Did you know that a whole house humidifier make your home more comfortable? Heated air is dry air - and dry air with a humidity level below 30% can cause respiratory irritation, uncomfortably dry nasal passages, nosebleeds and chapped and itchy skin; it can also aggravate conditions such as allergies and asthma. Experts agree that a humidity level of over 30% is optimal and when you're running your heating system that means running a humidifier too.

Did you know that it is important to install your filters in the correct direction with the arrows pointing toward the furnace? Well it is, if they are backwards, air will have a harder time flowing through the filter and your air handler will have to work harder.

Are your Ducts Properly Insulated? You can lose up to 60% of your heated air before it reaches the register if your ducts aren't insulated and travel through unheated spaces such as the attic or crawlspace.
Remember to hire a qualified professional to help you insulate and repair ducts.

What problems can be caused by a too large or small system? An oversized system will cost more to install and because it will have a shorter run time, your home will experience improper humidity control and large temperature swings. However an undersized system will be constantly running so you will have higher energy costs, reduced comfort in your home and the system will have a shorter life.

Did you know that your Heating and A/C system will not operate efficiently if you don’t hire someone who can design and install it correctly? Plus your contractor should permit your installation and get it inspected. It’s for your safety! #teamtock

Did you know that your heat pump system still needs to be checked and serviced for heating season? A heat pump system both heats and cools your home and it’s been running most of the summer 8 to 16 hours a day. A complete check and servicing now can not only keep your heat pump system performing at peak efficiency, it can catch small issues before they become problems.

This past Saturday was the first day of fall! Now is the perfect time to schedule your appointment to have your heating system checked and cleaned. Just as a tune up for your car can improve your gas mileage, a yearly tune up of your heating system can improve efficiency and save you money on your utility bills this winter.
