Frequently Asked HVAC Questions at A-1 Heating & Cooling
Q: Do I need to replace my air conditioner and furnace at the same time?
The air conditioner and furnace work as a complete system. When all parts are of the same efficiency and capacity, the system works longer, better, and more efficiently. When parts are mismatched, it makes it difficult for the system to function properly, which disrupts the overall comfort of your home.
New air conditioners, furnaces, and other equipment have a higher Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) than their older counterparts. Since the SEER rating is measured by the total system, having mismatched equipment will not provide an accurate rating, and can cost you more money in the long run.
Q: Are SEER rating numbers important?
SEER rating numbers specify the efficiency of heating and air conditioning equipment and relate directly to the amount of energy a specific model uses. Higher ratings mean a more efficient product and a lower energy bill. The federal government establishes rating guidelines and sets minimum efficiency levels for HVAC equipment. For cooling systems the rating is SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). For heat pumps, the rating is HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor). The rating for gas furnaces is AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency).
Q: Why do I need to worry about indoor air quality?
Most homeowners spend 90 percent of their day indoors. While modern homes are excellent at conserving energy, particles such as pet dander, dust, and other irritants become trapped inside. This causes problems for the many people suffering from allergies and asthma. Indoor air quality has become increasingly important to our general health and well-being.
Q: How can I improve the air quality in my home to help with allergies and asthma?
American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning recommends the AccuClean™ Whole-Home Air Filtration System for those suffering from asthma or allergies. This system can remove 99.98 percent of allergens from the filtered air that your family breathes. The AccuClean filtration system removes the majority of allergens, like dust, pollen, pet dander, dust mites, mildew, lint, fungus, most tobacco smoke, cooking grease, and even bacteria from the air. This system also removes 100 times more allergens than the standard one-inch throw away filters that come with most systems.
Q: How can I lower my energy bill?
Lowering your energy bill is not as difficult as it seems, as control begins at the thermostat. You can save about three percent of your heating costs for every degree you lower your thermostat. For every degree you raise your thermostat in the summer, you can easily cut cooling costs up to six percent. A-1 Heating & Cooling offers Nexia™ thermostats to help customers save money on energy costs.
Your heating and cooling system’s components should have the highest possible energy efficiency ratings. Make sure your components meet the following minimums:
Air conditioners: SEER ratings of 14 (or higher)
Furnaces: AFUE ratings of 80 (or higher)
Heat pumps: HSPF ratings of 7 (or higher)
Select American Standard Heating & Air Conditioning units provide great efficiency ratings:
Air conditioners 20.00SEER
Heat pumps: 9.2HSPF
When it comes time for a new heating and air conditioning system, consider a high-efficiency variable-speed system. Variable-speed means your system varies its speed depending on your home’s heating and cooling requirements, meaning you will not waste energy.
