HVAC Solutions You Should Be Thankful For

HVAC Solutions You Should Be Thankful ForIf you’ve decided it’s time to replace your older HVAC equipment, you have an ideal opportunity to upgrade to the latest home comfort solutions. When you choose the following features for your new HVAC system, you can be thankful for a boost in comfort, greater energy efficiency and better indoor air quality too.

Programmable Thermostat

If you have an old-fashioned manual thermostat, you’ll appreciate the energy savings and comfort control you get with a programmable model. Just make sure that the model you choose matches your usual weekly schedule. After it’s installed, take the time to learn how to program it around your daily routine to optimize heating and cooling efficiency.

Variable-Speed Air Handler

A variable-speed air handler operates virtually non-stop, but since it runs on low speed whenever possible, it uses less energy than single-speed equipment. Some other benefits of variable-speed technology are better air filtration, enhanced humidity control and fewer issues with hot or cold spots and temperature fluctuations.

Fan-Only Switch

A fan-only switch lets you use the blower to circulate air without running the A/C, heat pump or furnace. This can save you energy during milder weather when heating and cooling isn’t necessary.

Two-Speed Compressor

A two-speed compressor saves energy by operating at the lower speed as much as 80 percent of its operating time. You won’t have to sacrifice comfort for energy savings, however, because these models automatically switch to the higher speed when full capacity is needed.

Whole-Home Dehumidifier

Installing a whole-home dehumidifier on your HVAC system to pull excess moisture from your indoor air reduces the workload on your A/C or heat pump and this helps save energy. With better dehumidification, you’ll also enjoy healthier air quality and fewer problems with mold growth.

Automatic Fan Delay

Usually, a blower fan shuts down in sync with the HVAC equipment, leaving some conditioned air in the ducts. An automatic delay keeps the fan running for a slightly longer period so that all that air gets distributed.
