An efficient HVAC system is essential to any home. It keeps your Chapel Hill, North Carolina, house cool in the summer and warm in the winter when you need it. But trying to cool or heat your home with old or faulty HVAC system results in wasted energy and high monthly energy bills. If you’re having issues with your system, it’s time to upgrade. Here are the following benefits of upgrading your HVAC system:
Even a small upgrade like a new thermostat can make your life more energy-efficient and comfortable. A smart thermostat allows you to program your system to adjust automatically according to your needs. Would you like to walk into a cool home after work without having to leave your AC turned on all day? With smart home technology, you can set your AC to turn on and cool your home while you’re in your car on the way home. You get to come home to comfort without wasting energy.
Lower Energy Bills
The biggest draw to upgrading your HVAC system and switching to a smart energy-efficient system is lower energy bills. Older HVAC systems usually have a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating of 8 to 10. The SEER measures your system’s overall efficiency; the higher the SEER rating, the more efficient it is and the less energy it’ll use. For example, if your current SEER rating is 9 and you upgrade to a system that has the new minimum standard 13 SEER rating, you’ll reduce your energy consumption by 31 percent.
Improved Indoor Air Quality
With a new full HVAC system, you’ll immediately notice a difference in your indoor air quality. New high-efficiency HVAC systems use variable-speed motors, which provide constant and excellent airflow. An upgraded HVAC system will include a new filtration system, reducing air pollutants from entering your home. An upgraded HVAC system is one way to ensure a healthy household.
