Could Your Gas Furnace Surprise You Like a White Elephant Gift?

As we shift into ‘the most wonderful time of the year,’ concerns about preparations, cooler temperatures and even the reliability of your gas furnace build. The holiday season brings festivities along with the cold weather, and the white elephant gift exchange party is a fun tradition.

If you’re unfamiliar, white elephant, or Yankee Swap parties, require everyone invited to bring an anonymous present to add to a pool. Hilarious chaos often ensues as guests vie for the best present by ‘stealing’ another person’s gift.

White elephant parties can be lots of fun due to the element of surprise as long as you don’t end up with the “gag” or “dud” gifts. A gift swap might be good for some laughs, but there’s nothing funny about a “dud” gas furnace!

Upgrade Your Home’s Furnace, So It Doesn’t Catch You Off-Guard

What would not be fun is if surprise and mischief came into play in the form of a non-functional gas furnace in your home when cold winter weather arrives! Your home’s heating system needs to work at peak effectiveness and top operational standards this holiday season, for the white elephant party or any other holiday events you host to be as warm and hospitable as they can be.

Ductless Air Conditioner and Hand with Remote | Ductless Air Conditioners Hidden Benefits | Keith Air Conditioning

The Hidden Benefits of Ductless Air Conditioners

Did you know ductless air conditioners have a secret power? They also provide heat! If you’re tired of soaring energy bills and uneven temperatures, find out if ductless technology could be the solution you need for efficiency and comfort in your home.

Hot and cold spots with central air are common. These are due to furnace issues, poor insulation, or ineffectively defined climate zones. Generally, hot and cold spots occur when a thermometer reads the area around the main thermostat.

These small temperature variations can cause your thermostat to read inaccurately. With the steady drop in outdoor temperatures, homeowners with cold spots are right to be concerned.

Energy-Efficient Heating Plus Cooling

Before you decide to replace an entire furnace or heat pump, consider alternatives to drastic and expensive actions. You may be able to bring yourself the comfort and efficiency you desire, with an easier and more affordable solution.

Most people are unaware of all available options in air conditioning and heating systems. Ductless air conditioners are one of the easiest and most cost-effective fixes to target a specific room or area in your home.

If you choose to go the ductless route, you’ll enjoy optimal results when you work with a brand-certified contractor like Keith Air. Our technicians are factory-trained with AC equipment from industry leaders like Carrier.

Carrier’s ductless mini-split AC units are composed of an outdoor condenser unit and an indoor distribution unit. They operate within SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) units of 13-21. Keith Air also offers Carrier’s newer, more advanced Infinity models. These provide even higher operational capacities and additional features to boost efficiency such as variable-speed compressors.

Enjoy These Benefits with Ductless Air Conditioners

Cheaper electricity bills

Due to the setup and design of a ductless unit, it is far more energy-efficient than its central air counterpart. Save money when you only heat or cool as much air as you need.

Cleaner IAQ

With the emphasis on ‘ductless,’ these units provide cooling and heating circulation without the installation of ductwork. Ductless air conditioners are cleaner than traditional central air systems, without the need to clean ducts. Because ducts eventually accumulate dust and other airborne contaminants, less ductwork also helps to keep the indoor air quality of your home at a decent level.

Faster, easier installation

Installation of a ductless AC unit is quick and hassle-free, with no major construction required. This makes a ductless system an ideal choice for spaces where ductwork can’t be installed, or in additions where expansion of the existing ducts is not possible.

Improved specificity of the airflow control

Ductless air conditioners can fix hot spots as well as cold ones. They are designed to direct airflow to a specific, more concentrated area in your home. This means you can kiss those uneven temperatures goodbye!
