Top Benefits of a New High Efficiency HVAC System

Here are the top benefits of installing a new high efficiency HVAC system, as determined by A Plus Comfort heating and cooling experts.

Cost savings. Replacing an older system with a high efficiency one can save literally thousands of dollars in fuel and electric costs. New high efficiency gas furnace systems offer AFUE ratings well over 90% and high efficiency Heat Pump and Air Conditioning systems offer SEER ratings between 18 and 24, respectively. These higher energy ratings are great for both your bottom line and the environment. High efficiency systems often pay for themselves in 2-5 years based on energy savings.

Comfort control. Thanks to variable-speed technology, modulating gas valves and other 21st century advances, modern high efficiency systems produce more even heating; maintain temperature at a more constant level; provide more consistent air-flow; and offer superior humidity control compared to older systems.

Programmable controls. Programmable controls come standard with a high efficiency system and provide unprecedented control over temperatures in specific zones of your home. Inevitably some rooms need to be heated or cooled more than others, and zoning can provide energy savings alongside the comfort of consistently optimal temperatures. The ability to pre-program temperatures is also ideal for people who are away from home for set periods of time.

Superior air flow. High efficiency systems feature variable speed motors that ensure consistent air flow throughout your home. Not only does better airflow translate into better regulated temperature, it also helps to remove air impurities, prevent mold and simply create a more pleasant and healthy breathing environment, with the help of an upgraded filtration system.

Peace and quiet. The high-tech sound absorbing materials in modern high efficiency systems make operating noise non-existent compared to older models, ensuring your HVAC system is felt but not heard.

Longer operating life. As high efficiency systems minimize on-and-off cycling, they typically require less extreme repairs (when properly maintained) and will last longer than lower efficiency systems.

Environmental impact. In this case, what’s good for your home and your wallet is also good for the Earth. High efficiency systems use one-third less fuel as compared to older models, which means less waste and better conservation of natural resources.

Special Rebate Offers. A new heating system is a significant investment, so you’ll want to take the time to understand the rebates that come with it. Westinghouse high efficiency systems installed by A Plus Comfort come with equipment rebates up to $1500.

Flexible options. From high efficiency furnaces and HVAC units to geothermal and systems designed specifically for older homes, A Plus Comfort has a solution for every home, all of which include advanced features and high efficiency capabilities. An A Plus Comfort professional can evaluate your home and discuss your priorities to determine which system is right for you.

Increased resale value. When evaluating a property, prospective home buyers must consider the quality of a home’s HVAC system and the cost of operating it. Installing a high efficiency heating and cooling system raises the value of your home and may even help you sell it faster.
