High Efficiency Upgrades
Are you paying too much in utility costs to keep that old unit running?
Government standards recently required manufacturers to increase the efficiency of their equipment. Depending on the age of your equipment, a new system can save as much as one half of what your existing unit costs to operate.
If you are like most people, you probably don’t have excess money just sitting around to pay for a new furnace, heatpump or indoor air quality system.
We offer simple, easy to use finance programs with affordable payments. With today’s more efficient products the utility savings will help make the payment on your system!

Tips when buying a new heating system for your home.
How to pick the best system, save money, and be sure you get what you pay for
To buy and install the new equipment is only a small portion of your total system costs. It is often just the proverbial “tip of the iceberg”.
You’ll also have to maintain it, and pay to fix it when it breaks down, and replace it if it fails prematurely. Over time, the combined costs of owning a system always far exceed the initial cost of buying it.
The wrong system, improperly installed, could sentence you to over 20 years of excessive utility and repair bills! It may also not deliver the comfort you expected and deserve, and it may adversely affect your family’s health and safety.
So the first thing you need to know is: don’t rush into your decision. If you make the wrong choice, you probably won’t be able to justify tearing it out and starting again. You’ll literally have to live IN your decision for as long as you own your home.
Make sure your new equipment is the right size
When it comes to equipment, bigger is NOT better. Many contractors will readily sell you a bigger unit than you need. It costs you more to buy, and it can cost a lot more to operate and service. Even worse, an oversized system actually results in a less comfortable home.
If your home has hot or cold spots and your old system didn’t keep you comfortable, don’t just assume that a bigger one will. In fact, a larger unit usually worsens existing uneven temperature problems. In almost every case the best solution is to fix the problems with your air ducts or house insulation, not to install a bigger unit.
An oversized system comes on, then runs for only a few minutes and shuts down. It won’t evenly cool or heat all the rooms, will wear out sooner, and will almost never get up to its rated factory tested efficiency. Short run cycles are less fuel efficient, just like stop and go city driving.
Make sure hidden problems in your home’s existing ductwork are diagnosed and repaired
The second critical issue is your home’s existing ductwork: the network of hollow pipes that carry the air to and from your furnace or air handler. Recent scientific research indicates that yours probably has a whole host of hidden problems that will degrade your new equipment’s performance. A recent Department of Energy study states:
“Typical duct systems lose 25 to 40 percent of the energy put out by the central furnace, heat pump or air conditioner.”
This wasted energy increases your monthly utility bills and causes hot and cold spots. It is not uncommon to find that over a third of the heating or cooling you pay for doesn’t make it to your living area. Duct problems are often the real reason an old system couldn’t keep up. The equipment was the right size for the home, but the ducts wasted much of the energy created.
Make Sure Your New System Is Installed Correctly
The final concern is how your new heating system is installed. Many poorly trained or careless technicians often create problems during installation. For example, sloppy workmanship often creates duct leakage where your new equipment is connected to your existing ductwork.
It’s also essential that your new air conditioning or heatpump system has the proper refrigerant gas charge. Most contractors make no correction for the actual length and internal volume of the copper lines in your system. They just crack open the valves and use whatever refrigerant charge came in the new outdoor unit from the factory.
Because of this common mistake a recent study by a major electrical utility found that 79% of newly installed systems had either significantly too much or too little refrigerant gas. This increases utility bills, reduces the amount of cooling created, and often causes premature failure of the new system.
