Choosing the Best AC System For Your House
When shopping for a new HVAC system you should consider three main things:
COMFORT, QUALITY, VALUE
Comfort is subjective so it is very important to ensure your new system will allow you to “choose your climate”.
When looking at quality choose a brand with a reputation for performance, reliability and high customer satisfaction. Value is more than just the initial purchase price. Choosing a system with a high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) value will save you energy and money down the road.
An air conditioner is a part of a central heating and cooling system which draws heat energy out of the house and transfers it to the outside air replacing it with cool air.
A gas furnace is the heating component in a majority of systems in colder weather climates. It converts gas to heat. The main components to a furnace include burners and heat exchanger, blower and controls. gas furnaces are built to perform again and again, year after year. Beyond performance, also provides options for energy-efficient operation. In fact, some of our furnaces operate at over 95% efficiency, which means that 95% of the fuel you pay for is actually converted into heat for your home.
Technically, a heat pump is a mechanical-compression cycle refrigeration system that can be reversed to either heat or cool a controlled space. Installation for this type of system typically consists of two parts: an indoor unit called an air handler and an outdoor unit similar to a central air conditioner, but referred to as a heat pump. A compressor circulates refrigerant that absorbs and releases heat as it travels between the indoor and outdoor units.
HEATING & COOLING SYSTEMS
heating and cooling products are built to withstand years of use and exceed expectations. Be confident with a home heating and cooling system that is designed to last.

FEATURES TO CONSIDER
When purchasing a furnace or air conditioner, be sure to include the following potential upgrades and their associated costs into your budget.
High efficiency: When shopping for air conditioners, find the most efficient unit by comparing the SEER rating of each.
Variable speed: A furnace or air conditioner with a blower motor that moves at different speeds to control the flow of air into your home, resulting in better efficiency.
Two-stage heating: This type of furnace has a high level for very cold days and a low setting for milder days, resulting in quiet, efficient performance.
Two-stage cooling: This means the air conditioner or heat pump has a compressor with TWO levels of operations: high for hot summer days and low for milder days. Since the low setting is adequate to meet household cooling 80% of the time a two-stage unit runs for longer periods and produces more even temperatures.
Warranty: Be sure to understand what kind of a warranty is included with your HVAC purchase. Your unit may come with a limited warranty with the option to buy an extended warranty.
