How a New Furnace or Heat Pump Can Impact Your Budget

Furnace or heat pump

If you’re on the fence about a new furnace or heat pump for your Daphne, Alabama, home, you might not have considered the long-term financial advantages. Not only will a new furnace or heat pump offer longevity and increased performance, but they can also have a positive impact on your budget.

Enjoy Higher Energy Ratings

The government has tightened regulations on furnaces and heat pumps, increasing the minimum seasonal energy efficiency ratio, or SEER, and the energy efficiency ratio, or EER. These numbers represent the energy efficiency of the unit, and higher numbers equal more savings.

If you invest in a new furnace or heat pump, you’ll likely get a better rating. Older furnaces and heat pumps didn’t have to follow such stringent guidelines, so they consume more energy when used in the same way. Upgrading your system now will allow you to start realizing savings immediately.

Benefit From a New Warranty

When you have an older furnace or heat pump and haven’t extended your warranty, you will face higher expenses for repairs or replacement of parts. These higher payments and inefficient system performance make an upgrade a worthwhile investment. A new model comes with a convenient manufacturer’s warranty. We’ll repair or replace covered parts free of charge.

You can also save money if you add a maintenance plan to your new heat pump or furnace. We’ll visit your home twice a year to inspect the unit and recommend any necessary service. A well-maintained HVAC system will last longer and perform more efficiently, which translates to additional financial benefits.

Improve Resale Value

If you decide to sell your home, your new HVAC units become a selling point. Since they offer greater efficiency levels, this provides a greater incentive to make that purchase for future savings. This means more money in your pocket when you sell. You might also consider replacing your air conditioner at the same time.

Take Advantage of Zoning Technology in Your Home

Zoned systems give you maximum control in your Foley, Alabama, home. Regardless of your home’s size, you can benefit from multi-zone technology because you can control different parts of your house separately. Not only will your rooms be more comfortable, but zoning technology will enable you to reduce your energy consumption.

Why Are Zoned Systems Effective?

Think about how you use your home. Do you spend more time in the kitchen than in the spare bedroom? That’s what makes zoned systems so effective. You can separate little-used rooms from the areas of your home in which you spend the most time. You don’t have to heat or cool areas that you rarely enter, so your overall energy consumption declines.

Additionally, zoned systems can benefit you financially and practically if you decide to upgrade and add new rooms to your home, convert your garage into living space, or finish your attic. An Infinity Residential Ductless Multi-Zone heat pump system, for instance, is particularly convenient because you don’t have to add ductwork.

How Do Zoned Systems Work?

When we install a zoned system in your house, you’ll get a thermostat for each zone. You can adjust the temperatures to suit your specific needs, and then change them when circumstances demand it. For instance, if your guest bedrooms sit in a different zone than the rest of your house, you can increase the temperature when you have guests for the holidays.

Ductless zoned systems don’t rely on ductwork at all, which can save space in a small home. These small HVAC systems deliver conditioned air to specific areas of the home, and you can control the temperature with an independent thermostat. Many homeowners choose ductless zoned systems because of their convenience. We can retrofit an older home with this type of system or install it in new construction, depending on your needs.

If you’re in the market for a new HVAC system, consider taking advantage of zoning technology. Call Keith Air Conditioning, Inc. at 251-476-3610 to schedule a consultation.
