The Heat Pump Advantage

Heat pumps offer a number of advantages over other HVAC systems. First, a heat pump provides both heating and cooling in a single system. Next, electric heat pumps operate cleanly without any harmful exhaust going into the environment.

Modern heat pumps aren’t like your granddads. Older heat pumps required auxiliary heat when the temperature fell below 37 degrees F. Today’s heat pump relies on newer refrigerants maintaining your comfort and improved energy efficiency even in extreme cold without auxiliary heat to zero degrees.

Heat Pump Efficiency

Today’s air-source heat pumps provide greater efficiency and performance than ever before. Advances in technology, and improvements in existing technology include:

·      Variable speed blowers provide higher efficiency, and greater comfort than a single speed blower offers. A single speed blower operates at one speed consistently. Variable speed technology senses the speed required based on the indoor environment and provides just what is required. This saves energy, improves comfort, and provides better humidity control with the use of the home’s air conditioning in Dallas, TX during the summer.

·      Two-stage and variable speed compressors increase energy efficiency, performance, and improved humidity control in the cooling mode. As a result, you will see improved comfort and a reduced energy bill.

As you can see, variable speed technology controls the humidity better than ever during the cooling season. The technology enables the system to produce the air conditioning in Dallas, TX and dehumidification the indoor environment calls for. Single speed technology operates at only one speed – wide open from start to finish. This saves you money, while producing the ideal indoor environment.

Heat pumps can provide a solution for almost any home’s heating and air conditioning needs. The conventional air source heat pump remains a common choice for homeowners wanting comfort, value and efficiency. The geothermal heat pump is the gold standard for any homeowner seeking superior performance and energy efficiency in almost any environments. Mini-split heat pumps are an alternative for homes or additions lacking ducts, or for those who want to save even more energy by zoning.

ENERGY STAR Heat Pumps

The heat pump provides energy efficient heating and air conditioning by providing by generating as much as four times the amount of energy consumed. In addition, ENERGY STAR heat pumps consume up to 30% less energy than a standard heat pump. An Energy Star heat pump ensures you of receiving the highest available reliability, and energy efficiency.

Sizing is Essential

It can’t be stressed often enough how important proper sizing is. In fact, wrong sizing is a common occurrence. Ensuring your home receives the proper size heating and air conditioning in Dallas, TX is a key factor in receiving the best performance, energy efficiency, and the longest lifespan. Wrong-size installations can result in the following problems:

·   An oversized HVAC system short cycles. This means it operates in a short time at maximum power and shuts off quickly. The system fails to run long enough to remove excess humidity from the air in the home, increases your discomfort by making you feel hotter than it actually is. Furthermore, because the system is always running at maximum speed and production the lifespan of the unit is reduced and energy bills increased.

·   An undersized HVAC system runs excessively, often non-stop in extreme weather. This causes premature wear and tear on the system, and a reduced lifespan for the heating and air conditioning in Dallas, TX.

A qualified Garland HVAC technician will use the industry guidelines for determining the proper size unit for your home. A few of these numerous guidelines include:

·      Local climate conditions for the home’s location

·      The facing direction, size and insulating qualities of windows and doors

·      The home’s level of insulation

·      Type, size and location of trees

·      Square footage and ceiling height, and numerous other factors

Remember, an Energy Star unit ensures you receive reliable, high-efficiency heating and air conditioning in Dallas, TX.

Air Filtration | Air Conditioning Installation

Daniel Reichert - Wednesday, July 27, 2016

Almost everyone knows those who suffer from allergies can benefit from the installation of a system capable of utilizing HEPA filters. HEPA filters are an advanced filtration system first designed for use in hospitals. The essential factor in determining the best air filtration depends on what you are allergic to. Let’s look a little deeper into the subject of how considering filtration type with air conditioning installation can assist in reducing allergy symptoms.


The Purpose of Air Filtration

Air filtration was originally designed to trap particles that could damage the HVAC system. Later, improved filtration was designed to trap pollen and other airborne particles, providing a cleaner system, and cleaner air with air conditioning installation.

A certified HVAC technician provides the majority of system maintenance. A homeowner can provide little, when it comes to maintenance. Maintain a clean intake grill, vacuum the registers, and the all-important filter changes are the extent of DIY maintenance. If you’re not changing the filter routinely, it becomes a source of contaminates in both the system and your home. A dirty filter can ruin the system, and has adverse health effects.

To avoid damage to the HVAC system, and reduce allergy stimuli, change the air filters once per month or according to the manufacturer's specifications. Filter quality varies widely, with blue fiberglass filters being the minimal filter, and does not filter out pollen, dust or other pollutants and allergy triggers. Check with the system’s manufacturer and use the recommended filter. When providing a new air conditioning installation, remember to assess the system’s filtration abilities for providing cleaner air.

Genuine HEPA filters, or High Efficiency Particulate Air, have a MERV between 17 and 19 have a minimum efficiency of more than 99 percent in removing 0.3 ìm particles. A MERV of 20 is rated for 0.1 to 0.2 ìm particles. HEPA filters have higher efficiencies for removing both larger and smaller airborne particles, including pollen, dust mites, mold, pet dander, and other contaminates.

However, HEPA filters can only be used in HVAC systems designed for them. The typical residential system may not have enough fan or motor capacity to accommodate higher efficiency filters. Consult with the manufacturer before using to avoid damage to the system.

Medium-efficiency air filters, with a MERV between 7 and 13, may be all that you require, depending on the size of the filtration required for the specific allergies involved. Medium efficiency filters are almost as effective as HEPA filters in reducing the concentrations of the most common indoor particles that are the cause of allergies and asthma.

However, any filter will clean only the air that passes through it. For severe allergies and asthma, talk to a Garland Heating and Air Conditioning professional for a solution when providing air conditioning installation.

Both medium and HEPA filters require proper installation to avoid air bypassing the filter. The higher a filter’s efficiency, the more attention must be provided to ensure sealed installation due to airflow resistance creating leaks.

Additional Tips

·   Stay indoors between 10 am and 4 pm when pollen counts are highest. Ensure windows are closed and the air conditioning system on.

·   Shower and shampoo before bed to remove pollen, especially if you have been outdoors.

·   Talk to your doctor about nasal irrigation for the removal of pollen to reduce symptoms.

·   Use HEPA air filtration systems in each room to reduce the pollen count within the home. Sleeping with one in your room is especially important.

·   Vacuum carpets routinely with a HEPA vacuum cleaner.

Heating and Air Conditioning

Daniel Reichert - Tuesday, July 26, 2016

The heating and air conditioning system that provides your year round comfort is the largest consumer of energy in your home. That is why upgrading to a high efficiency HVAC system may be a smart decision. 


A/C Cost Savings

Replacing an older, inefficient heating and air conditioning system can save you significantly on the cost of energy, and potentially on the frequency of repair. Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, or SEER, is how the energy efficiency of air conditioning is measured. The higher the SEER, the more you will save on the electric bill. Older systems typically operate in the 8 to 10 SEER ranges, while new units range on an average from 23 to 25 SEER, or above. High efficiency systems will pay for themselves over the unit’s lifetime, and you will experience improved comfort along with saving energy.

Comfort

Because of today’s improved technology, high efficiency HVAC equipment produces a more consistent temperature in every room, and provides greater humidity control. The technology delivers a higher level of comfort, while saving you money.

Air Flow

High efficiency systems take advantage of variable speed motor technology that ensures the optimal airflow throughout your home. Along with better airflow, variable speed motors operate with superior efficiency year round. Improved airflow also provides the benefit of improved air quality.

Noise

Older units are noisy when they operate. Today’s heating and air conditioning system has sound absorbing materials for ensuring quiet operation. An advantage anyone sleeping in a room near the unit will appreciate, and your neighbors too.

Environmentally Friendly

Upgrading to a new high efficiency heating and air conditioning system is an environmentally friendly choice. High efficiency systems can consume as much as one-third less energy than older models, which means they conserve natural resources and produce a reduced carbon footprint for your household, along with saving you money.

Options

High efficiency HVAC systems offer a variety of available features. Examples include programmable thermostats, variable speed fans, geothermal units, hot water production, and more.

Increased Resale Value

Installing a high efficiency HVAC system will provide a strong selling point among the competition if you are thinking of selling your home in the near future. Prospective buyers look for benefits, and a new system, plus superior energy efficiency will be a major plus on their list. Back it up with utility bills for them to see.
