Time to Replace an Old System? Choose High-Efficiency Home Comfort!

man looking at energy saving graphs on tabletIf you’ve been thinking about replacing your old heating and cooling equipment, you might be concerned about the cost. While it’s true that HVAC equipment can be an expense, it is a necessary component of your home. Not only does your HVAC system keep you and your family comfortable, but it also helps keep your home in good condition, too. An HVAC system helps keep a regular temperature throughout your home, year-round, and that’s good for structural integrity, plumbing, flooring, and more.

What you may not know about today’s heating and cooling equipment is that it is far more energy-efficient than its older counterparts. And while better energy efficiency is good for the planet, it’s also good for your home energy budget. In this article, we’ll compare the costs of older systems with today’s high-efficiency solutions, and talk about some alternative types of HVAC equipment that can help you stay comfortable and save even more energy.

How efficient is a 20-year-old HVAC system?

While it seems hard to believe, the year 2000 was more than 20 years ago. Crazy, right? But, many people still have HVAC equipment from 20 years ago in their homes. Chances are, this equipment is not providing you with the best possible energy efficiency. While efficiency standards began to change around 2009, equipment installed before then did not have to meet those rigorous standards.

According to the Department of Energy, a furnace installed in 2002 wastes at least 22 percent of the energy it consumes, meaning it is performing at about 78 percent AFUE. Today’s high-efficiency furnaces often provide 95 percent efficiency, meaning it only wastes 5 percent of the energy used. That can translate into some decent savings on energy bills for you!

Air conditioning systems have also improved greatly over the past 20 years. For instance, an air conditioning system installed in 2002 is likely to have a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating of around 9. The Dept. of Energy suggests that if you upgrade to an air conditioner with a SEER rating of 14, you can reduce your energy consumption by more than 35 percent.

Alternative technologies can help consumers save even more energy.

Because of advancements in heat pump systems, many consumers are choosing to switch over to these types of systems. In the southern states, heat pumps have been used for some time. Over the past few years, advances have been made that allow heat pumps to perform well, even in northern climates. Heat pumps are available that can replace both your central heating and cooling systems, all in one unit. A central heat pump system can keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer, and provides excellent energy efficiency.

If you’ve had electric baseboard heat in your home, a ductless heat pump system can provide better efficiency and year-round comfort. By choosing to replace an old baseboard heating system with ductless, heating costs can be cut by 60 percent, and cooling costs by 30 percent. You’ll enjoy comfort all year long, and have better room-by-room control of your home climate as well. Not to mention, ductless can be installed in an area of your home that doesn’t have access to the home’s central ductwork system, helping to balance out heating and cooling and allowing your current system to operate more effectively and efficiently.

If you’re ready for an upgrade, T.F. O’Brien can help.

At T.F. O’Brien, we can help you get the high-efficiency equipment upgrade you need to enjoy better home comfort and save money on your heating and cooling bills. Simply give us a call at 516.488.1800 to learn more or to schedule an appointment with us.

Get Ready for Heating Season on Long Island with T.F. O’Brien

Fall doesn’t officially make its arrival until the end of September. But, you can already get pumpkin spice everything and there is a crispness to the air. You probably won’t have to turn on the heating system in your Long Island home just yet. However, there’s no better time than the present to think about it.

September is a time when people are getting back into routines. One thing you should get in the habit of doing is scheduling the heating maintenance you need for your Long Island home.

Why are heating tune-ups such a big deal?

Heating maintenance does a lot more than tidying up your system. It helps to ensure you won’t suffer a breakdown when the really cold weather hits. That’s why it’s always better to get it checked out earlier than later.

When you get a heating tune-up, yes, of course you’ll get a clean filter. But there’s more to it than that. We check all of your electrical components and evaluate safety controls. We make sure your heating system is getting the right amount of gas, and that your vent system is operating properly. In short, we make sure your heating system is going to be safe and efficient for you to use when the chilly temperatures arrive.

I’ve been thinking about getting a new heating system for my Long Island home. Can T.F. O’Brien help me with that?

If you need a new heating system this year, you should know that you have many options, including high efficiency furnaces, heat pumps, and high velocity and ductless heating. T.F. O’Brien can help you save significantly with manufacturer rebates, utility incentives and money back from us. Not to mention, we offer you the best quality heating equipment available. It offers you and your family optimal home heating, and is built for efficiency and durability.

My heating system was acting a little funny at the end of winter last year. How do I know if I need repairs?

The best time to call T.F. O’Brien for repair services is when you notice something’s not quite right. There are many reasons for this, but the number one reason is your safety. A heating system that’s not working right can emit carbon monoxide. That’s why your best, and safest, bet is to call us right away. But, if you’re simply dissatisfied with your system’s comfort abilities, or if you’ve noticed your utility bills creeping up, you might need some repairs. Give us a call and we’ll be happy to talk with you about your heating issue and come up with a solution.

So I can get heating maintenance, repair and installation for my Long Island home – all from T.F. O’Brien?

Yes! All you need to do is call us and we’ll be happy to help you get whatever heating products and services you need for your Long Island home. Don’t let another cold winter leave you feeling the chill – count on us to help you stay warm no matter how frightful the weather outside may get. Just give us a call at 516.488.1800 and we’ll be glad to assist you.
