I often get asked how important it is to have a central air conditioning system cleaned and checked regularly, and is it really needed, so I thought I would share a story from earlier this week.
Upgrading your heating and air conditioning equipment is never more affordable. Homeowners in Southeastern Pennsylvania, which includes Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware and Chester counties, can upgrade their heaters and air conditioners with new high efficiency equipment. Financing Rates of .99, 4.99 and 5.99 percent are available for terms up to 10 years to help make high efficiency equipment affordable to almost all homeowners. For example, for a 10 year $10,000.00 loan, the monthly payment is less than 100.00 per month. This payment is largely offset by utility savings incurred with the newer high efficiency equipment.
We love working with people who have older homes and would like to replace existing equipment or add additional systems.
Because we started as an oil service company, most of our customers had older homes with hot water boilers with baseboard or radiator heating systems. A lot of these homes have boilers that are very old - some as old as 50 to 60 years old. Many of these boilers are as a big as a small car and are extremely inefficient. We have replaced many of these boilers and replaced them with new high efficiency units a third the size. In a lot of these cases we install an indirect domestic hot water tank and have seen reductions in Oil usage as high as 40 percent.
Ductless Split Systems
A ductless Heat Pump / Air conditioner is a system that circulates cool/hot air in a building without ductwork. These systems are an affordable alternative to central heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC ) systems, which need a network of ducts to move air. Ductless systems are generally considered to be more efficient and easier to maintain than window air conditioners.
Residential and commercial buildings consume over 40 percent of the overall energy usage in the United States. These buildings represent a huge opportunity to reduce our nation’s overall energy usage as well as it dependence on foreign sources of energy.
