    Cost

  • Of course when buying anything the first question you ask is, how much is this going to cost me? A new HVAC system can be a big investment, but cheaper isn’t always better. If you invest in a high quality system you will see the benefits overtime. The more advanced features that come along with the pricier HVAC systems include energy saving technology. Consider the value over time rather than the initial investment.
  • Size

  • When buying a system you need to take into consideration the size of your home. You want to buy a a HVAC system that is appropriate for the size of your home so you do not waste energy. A unit that is too big will not cool your house properly an a unit that is too small will constantly be running to keep your house cool. Thus, costing you more on your energy bill.
  • Efficiency

  • You want to get the best bang for your buck, so make sure you read the efficiency reviews. An efficient HVAC system will save you money on your bills. For air conditioners, look for high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER).
  • Installation

  • Most HVAC systems will require a licensed technician to install it into your home. You may want to think twice before you take on a do-it-yourself project. You want to make sure it is installed properly to avoid problems in the future. Make sure you get several price estimates before forking over your money!
  • When making a large investment such as this you want to make sure you consider all of the above factors. We know you want to get the most out of your money, but make sure you take everything into consideration before you opt for the cheaper system!

    Think you have to buy a new heating and cooling system in every room? Well, think again! Temperature zoning makes it possible for everyone to be comfortable in every room.

    What is a temperature zoning system you ask? In essence, it is a system that allows a consistent temperature in any given region of your home, regardless of the outdoor conditions. No matter sun, rain or snow. To make it simple, each area will have its own climate.

    How do I know if I need a temperature zoning system?

  • Does your home have multiple levels and/or levels that are completely or partially underground?
  • Do you have rooms that are rarely used or certain family members that prefer a different temperature in their room?
  • Do you have rooms in your house can be noticeably cooler or hotter during a certain season or time of day?
  • If any of the following apply to you, you may want to consider a temperature zoning system.

    A temperature zoning system is a great addition to almost any home. The temperature distribution in your home is constantly being affected by sun exposure, rain, humidity, walls, ceilings, and windows insulation quality. A temperature zoning system from Casteel will not only help control the temperature in different rooms but it will also save you money on energy bills. Who doesn’t love that?

    If you live in a moderate climate, heat pumps are a great energy efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. Heat pumps use electricity to move the heat from a cool space into a warm one. This process keeps the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. The most common heat pump is an air-source heat pump. This heat pump moves heat, rather than generating heat which can provide up to four times the amount of energy they consume.

    According to the U.S Department of Energy a heat pump can trim the amount of electricity you use for heating by as much as 30%-40%. These savings can significantly lower your utility bills. Another great aspect of a heat pump is that it also acts a dehumidifier and works better than most standard central air conditioners. You can add on advanced air filtration to your heat pump system. This removes more dust, pollen and other irritants from your conditioned air allowing you to breath easy. Also, the fans in the heat pump adjust quietly, allowing you maximum comfort in your home.

    If you are considering a heat pump as an energy efficient alternative first consider the climate you live in. If temperatures drop too low, your heat pump will have a difficult time keeping the temperature in your home up. Otherwise, we highly recommend this energy efficient alternative for your home.

    There are three major factors to consider when deciding to replace your furnace.

  • The efficiency of your furnace
  • How much is your fuel costing you?
  • How much energy is required to keep the temperature inside your home at 65 degrees?
  • Gas prices are competitive, so there is no need to switch to oil or electricity. You may however want to consider switching to a condensed-type gas furnace. This type of furnace is able to capture about 97 percent of the fuels energy. If you do decide to make the switch to a condensed type furnace, you will be cutting your heating bills by about 20 percent. Take a look at your past winter heating bills and decide if the 20 percent savings are going to be worth the cost of the furnace replacement in the long run. According to an article from This Old House, it’s going to be around a $3,000 investment.

    If you are taking good care of your furnace, the average lifespan should be about 25 years. Chances are your furnace still has plenty of life in it! Other things to think about are ways to reduce the heating load around your house. For instance, adding some insulation or weatherstripping will help keep the cold air out and your costs low. These are inexpensive quick fixes that can help you save without putting a big dent in your wallet!

    That’s right, fall is almost a week away, and those 55 degree mornings are a nice reprieve from the summer’s heat. But, your HVAC system has been working overtime all summer — so is it ready for the fall?
