Tips, Tricks & Insights About HVAC

Unless it is extremely cold outside your your thermostat is set to a very high temperature. most furnaces only cycle on and off about every 10 minutes or so. A furnace that turns on and off too much is more than an annoyance; it could be driving up your utility bills and in need of a heating repair. If you’ve ever wondered, “Why does my furnace cycle on and off so much?”, we’ve got some answers for you and guidance on what you can do about this common furnace problem.

Your ducts play a significant role in home comfort and indoor air quality. Did you know that ducts account for up to 40 percent of heating and cooling costs in your home? Leaks or disconnected sections can add significantly to those utility bills, meaning that periodic inspection of the hidden circuit is wise. As you consider ductwork services, however, it’s also important to think about your home’s energy performance as a whole. There are many additional factors that can contribute to high utility costs, meaning that issues like home sealing should be addressed.

The benefits of preventive maintenance from a professional HVAC contractor for your home’s HVAC system are worth every penny. With a preventive maintenance plan or regular seasonal tune-ups, you keep your unit operating efficiently for energy savings, enjoy better indoor comfort, avoid potential repairs and add years of longevity to the unit’s life cycle. Regular maintenance service is the most cost-effective solution for keeping your HVAC system running in good condition and operating at its peak performance.

The main reasons why you may decide to convert a furnace are to save money and for environmental friendliness. Switching from an oil or electric furnace to a natural gas furnace will save you more than 50 percent in energy bills. Much of the natural gas that Americans use is domestically produced, and prices have been stable for a long time. When burned, natural gas produces about 30 percent less carbon dioxide than oil and 45 percent less than the coal burned to make electricity. It also produces almost no airborne particulates and sulfur dioxide. By converting to natural gas, you’ll be contributing to less acid rain, smog and carbon emissions in the environment.
