Whether relaxing, working from home or enjoying a meal with your family people spend a large amount of time in their home. Homes today are designed and built for maximum comfort using quality materials and appliances. Heating and cooling systems are the highest in quality and design.

Pollution levels indoors can be many times higher than outdoors. Controlling the levels of airborne allergens is extremely important.

Air Quality

These days clean air is a significant concern for a lot of people, particularly in the home and place of work where it’s possible to distribute viruses and for contaminants to gather. Indoor air quality options tend to be diverse and plentiful, therefore before you go out and spend big money on an extravagant rotating cylindrical fan; see precisely what must be implemented to obtain the best quality of air to inhale. Using a heating or air conditioning provider, you’ll be able to obtain a professional evaluation of the quality of air in your house and business, and you’ll be capable of seeing what is actually wrong. Perhaps you will choose to install a whole-house air filtration system. A whole house a filtration system delivers eight times the amount of clean air as the typical room HEPA appliance, and one hundred times the amount delivered by an ionic-type room appliance or a standard 1” filter.

Air Filter

Check the air filter on your HVAC unit every month, especially during heavy use months (winter and summer). If the filter looks dirty after a month, change it. At a minimum, change the filter every 3 months. A dirty filter will slow down air flow and make the system work harder to keep you warm or cool — wasting energy. A clean filter will also prevent dust and dirt from building up in the system — leading to expensive maintenance and/or early system failure. Contact your American Standard Service Representative today with any questions.

Replacing Your Air Conditioning Unit

Replacing an Old, Inefficient Air Conditioner will Save Money and Make Your Home More Comfortable.

Along with providing comprehensive whole-house energy upgrades, we can take care of specific, beneficial home improvements like replacing your current air conditioner with an energy-efficient model that's properly sized for your house. Before that happens, we'll evaluate which system will work best for your property, a decision that's based on factors such as your home's size, age, number of rooms, and current cooling costs.

Replacing an old air conditioner with a modern, high-efficiency air conditioner can save your home a lot on cooling costs as well as make your home more comfortable. The Federal Dept. of Energy estimates that modern high efficiency air conditioners use 30-50% less energy to produce the same cooling as air conditioners from the 1970s. Even air conditioners that are a 10 years old can be 20-40% more inefficient than a modern one. If you have bought an older home, replacing that old air conditioner can save hundreds and thousands of dollars over the time you are living in the home.

Call us today and let us help you decide if a new Air Conditioning Unit is right for you.
