Is It Time to Replace My HVAC System?

If the HVAC system in your home is over 20 years old, the clock is ticking on its lifespan… especially on a less expensive, lower quality building grade brand. While different systems typically last anywhere from 15-25 years (give or take some), older almost always equals less efficient (AKA more costly). If you have had to do several repairs over the last year, now is a good time to make the investment in your home for the future. Remember that although this is an unwelcome expense, it is a wise investment.

The Difference between Air Filters and Air Purifiers

With spring upon us, it's prime time to make sure your HVAC system is ready to provide cool air by scheduling a professional tune up, getting filters changed, etc. Then, when winter comes around, it'll be time to seal up our houses and try to keep the heat in.

Does it Pay to Adjust Your Thermostat?

ThermostatMYTH: There is no benefit to constantly adjusting your thermostats when you don’t need as much heating or cooling…such as at night or when nobody’s home.

Many people believe that while this may make sense in milder weather, it doesn't work so well in extreme cold or high heat and humidity conditions that we have in Philadelphia and throughout the Delaware Valley. The thought here is that when its very cold, the energy required to recover and reheat a space from adjusting the temperature down will negate any savings.  The same mindset believes that when trying to cool the older homes in our region, they are too inefficient to constantly let the temperature and humidity rise.  The energy to remove the humidity and return the home to a comfortable temperature isn’t worth the effort.
