When Should I Replace My Heating & Air System?

You’ve had your heating and air system for quite a few years now and you’re worried it’s just not operating like it used to. You’re thinking it might just need a simple repair or a tune-up, but you also know that a brand new system would be more energy efficient. You’re stuck going back and forth and are spending lots of time thinking about the two options. What should you do?

Should I Repair or Replace?

This is a question we get quite frequently here at Access Heating & Air, and to be completely honest and transparent there’s not one simple cookie cutter answer. There are lots of things to consider, including:

  • Age of your current system

  • How much you’re spending on energy bills

  • Repair costs now

  • Future repair costs

  • Rebates

  • Total cost of ownership

We recommend considering replacement when a large repair is necessary or the age of the system is more than 10 years old. While there are many components to this decision, it’s best to have a FREE in-home consultation where our well-trained experts can provide you with necessary information that will help you make a decision.

Do know that if you decide to have a new, energy-efficient HVAC system installed you’ll not only reduce monthly energy bills – but you could also receive manufacturer rebates and federal tax credits.

How To Choose The Right Programmable Thermostat

Do you find yourself like most people living in the Boise area – away from their homes for large portions of the day while at work or at school? Programmable thermostats are perfect for this type of lifestyle as they help keep your energy bills down where they belong. And let’s face it, who wants to be spending more than they need to on heating bills this time of year? Not us!

With that being said, a programmable thermostat won’t do you much good if you don’t know how to use it properly. And while it may sound like quite the simple concept, there’s more to it than setting it and forgetting it.

First off, you need to choose the right thermostat for your home. There are several different options available including:

  • 7-Day Models: are best if your daily schedule tends to change frequently. If your children get home earlier on some days or if you work late certain nights of the week, you should consider this type. They will give you the most flexibility and let you set different programs for different days.
  • 5+2-Day Models: these types of thermostats use the same schedule every day of the week, with a separate setting available for the weekends.
  • 5-1-1 Models: Best if you have a consistent weekday schedule and a different one on Saturdays and Sundays.

Now that you have a bit of knowledge about selecting the type of thermostat that works best with your schedule, contact the HVAC specialists at Harbin Heating and Air when it comes time for installation. We’re more than happy to help with every step of the process!

 

HVAC Safety Tips

Keeping you and your love ones safe is a main priority in your life. But it is also a main priority within our team. We try to make sure each and every one of our customers and potential customers are safe and know things about safety when it comes to their home. Here are some essential things you should know about HVAC, gas, and plumbing: 

 

  • Clean your air filter – Clogged air filters in your furnace could result in carbon monoxide fumes leaking into your home. Check filters frequently, cleaning or replacing them at least every three months.
  • Install and maintain carbon monoxide and smoke detectors – Colorless, odorless carbon monoxide gas is potentially fatal when inhaled, and electrical fires can result from any home appliance including heating and air systems. Install carbon monoxide and smoke detectors throughout your home. Be certain to check batteries monthly, change them at least once a year, and test new batteries for performance.
  • Designate family friendly areas – Block children and pets from accessing rooms that contain furnaces and boilers to prevent potentially dangerous burns from pilot lights and pressure release valves.
  • Schedule annual professional maintenance – Having your heating and cooling system professionally maintained is important in preventing safety issues. Professional technicians can check your system for safety issues that could result from a faulty system and ensure your heating or air will be there for you when you need it most. Call us or use the app to schedule your heating and cooling system maintenance!

 Some dangers associated with heating and cooling systems—and that you should be aware of—include:

  • Loose connections from the expansion and contraction of heat pump units that could potentially lead to electrical fires
  • Faulty pilot lights and heat exchanger leaks on your furnace, resulting in carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Blocked, poorly located, or faulty boiler pressure release valves

Here’s how to stay safe when the weather changes:

  • Prepare – Power failures, storms, and other disasters could occur at any time, so take precautions to familiarize yourself with the way components in your home, such as your heating and air system, function to increase your safety and comfort.
  • Practice electrical safety – Educate yourself and older family members on how to operate circuit breaker controls for your heating and air conditioning equipment and other appliances in your home. Turn off circuit breakers to your heating and air during a power outage to prevent harmful spikes in electricity that could occur when power comes back on.
  • Install surge protectors – Installing a surge protector on your heating and air conditioning system protects expensive heating and air equipment when you are away. A surge protector will automatically shut down power to your system if an electrical spike occurs.
  • Have your system professionally inspected following a major disaster – Floods, tornados, and more can affect your heating and cooling system, resulting in unsafe operation. Following the event of a natural disaster, have your system professionally inspected before turning the power back on.

4 ways to cut your heating bill by $690 a year

Even well-built, newer homes have enough gaps to add up to a 14-square inch hole. But plug these money holes and you can save as much as $690 off your heating bill. Here’s how

Drafty doors

A thin eighth-of-an-inch gap under a 36-inch wide door is akin to a 2.4-inch hole in your wall. Save money by sealing up drafty doors.

 

Replace attic insulation

To keep heat bills down there should be at least 12 inches of evenly distributed insulation throughout your attic.

 

Fill the cracks

To stop air leakage, and high heating bills, use caulk to fill the gaps.

 

Out with the old-school thermostat

For every degree you turn your thermostat down in winter, you save between 3% and 5% on your heating bill.Use a programmable thermostat to make these savings automatic.

If you have any questions please email me at kevin@harbinair.com. I hope everyone has a great Winter season.
