Should I Think About Getting a New AC?

May 21, 2020 Uncategorized

It’s that time of the year again! The days are beginning to be a little warmer. With rising temperatures come discomfort and many kinds of health risks. If you have an old, inefficient air conditioner, this is precisely the best time to consider having a new one. In a few weeks’ time, your AC is going to be the MVP among your household appliances. Needless to say, it’s also going to be your biggest energy consumer.

There’s no denying that air conditioners, like any other machines, are not meant to last forever. If your current system is around 10-15 years, it may no longer have the level of efficiency it once did. You wouldn’t want to overpay for home comfort because of an inefficient air conditioning unit, do you?

If you are doubtful about getting a new AC, all you ne...

May 19, 2020 Uncategorized

It’s no surprise that homes with heat pumps installed have lower monthly energy bills than homes with traditional heating or cooling systems.

However, proper operation is still a prerequisite to these savings. According to the Department of Energy, proper maintenance is key to efficient operation of heat pumps. The difference between the energy consumption of a well-maintained heat pump and a severely neglecting unit ranges from 10 percent to 25 percent.

One of the easiest things you can do to ensure your heat pump works as smoothly as possible is to make sure it has clean filters. It is recommended to clean or replace your filters at least once a month or as needed, and observe the manufacturer’s guidelines for maintenance.

When a heat pump has clogged filters, it suffer...

All About the Lennox Elite® Series EL15XP1 Heat Pump

May 5, 2020 Uncategorized

Central air has been the main choice of homeowners to make their homes comfortable in the midst of severe weather. However, it is not without drawbacks. While it’s an effective way to make a house cool or warm, but it fails in the area of energy efficiency, especially when compared to heat pumps. These are slowly becoming an alternative of homeowners who are looking to save some cash on energy while maintaining a comfortable living space.

Heat pumps are great retrofit add-ons to homes with existing ducted HVAC systems. They can also be a great option for room additions where extending ductwork is impractical. Also, if you have rooms that are rarely used such as guest rooms and a library, a heat pump can be a wise bet for you.

Why Choose Lennox Air Purification Systems

April 30, 2020 Uncategorized

Energy efficiency has become the mantra of homeowners in recent years. In an attempt to be as energy-efficient as possible, more and more homes are built with construction methods such as better insulation, weather-stripping, air-tight windows, and improved door systems. These techniques do help minimize a home’s energy usage but the downside is compromised indoor air quality.

Apparently, the more energy-efficient a home is, the riskier it becomes in terms of the quality of the air inside. Because of the lack of proper ventilation, such homes harbor airborne contaminants that cause all kinds of respiratory illnesses.

With the spread of the COVID-19 disease throughout the world, particularly in the United States, homeowners should strive to improve their indoor air quality to m...

Why Invest in an Energy Star-Approved HVAC System

April 23, 2020 Uncategorized

The environment is not getting any younger. In the past century or so, technological advancements have made our lives easier but they did not necessarily help the environment. In comparison to other inventions humanity has developed in recent decades, HVAC has some of the smallest negative impacts on the natural world. Running a furnace or an air conditioner does not emit deadly amounts of greenhouse gases or damage marine life. But still affects nature.

With that in mind, we all should do our part in minimizing the harmful effects of our daily activities to the environment. One of the things to achieve this goal is by investing in ENERGY STAR- approved appliances and HVAC systems.

The Lennox Elite® Series XP16 Heat Pump

April 21, 2020 Uncategorized

Most U.S. homes are still equipped for central air and many homeowners are complaining about certain issues associated with their traditional HVAC systems. One of the things that concern them is inconsistent heating and cooling. Because of problems in the ductwork or the system itself, a traditional heating or cooling system causes some rooms to be cooler or warmer than the others. If you have a multi-story home, you will notice that the upper rooms are considerably warmer than the lower rooms. Another major issue related to conventional HVAC systems is high energy costs. Every homeowner is aware of the costs associated with operating a heat pump and an air conditioner.

If you are looking for a better way to make your home comfortable, consider going with a heat pump.
