Three Advantages of High-Efficiency HVAC Systems

HVAC, or heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, are one of the most important elements of a comfortable home. Your HVAC system doesn’t just control the temperature in your house. It also regulates and filters air intake, and circulates air around the building to prevent it from getting stale. Despite these important functions, however, many families have never considered changing to upgrading the HVAC system in their home from when they first bought the house. Many homes still use HVAC systems installed two or three decades ago, or sometimes even older. 

If you’re using an HVAC system that’s more than twenty years old, chances are you’re paying more money in electricity bills every month than you have to, combined with worse HVAC performance and a lower comfort level in your home overall. Older HVAC systems can also break down often, requiring costly repairs and periods without climate control in your home. 

Although upgrading your HVAC system can seem expensive and daunting, it can be extremely beneficial in the long run to both your quality of life and your wallet. Here are the top three advantages of upgrading to a high-efficiency HVAC system. Be sure to hire a licensed HVAC contractor to install a new HVAC system, as attempting to do it yourself can result in injury or even death.

Lower Energy Costs

Over the last few decades, technology has improved in almost every aspect of life, and HVAC systems are no exception. Older HVAC systems were often grossly inefficient compared to their modern counterparts, in part due to technological constraints and in part due to less emphasis placed on eco-friendly technology back in the day. Over time, HVAC systems further degrade, lowering power efficiency. Together, this doesn’t just mean that your older HVAC system is contributing to man-made climate change; it’s also hurting your wallet.

New HVAC systems are much more efficient than older ones. Modern furnaces can operate at up to 99% efficiency, meaning they convert 99% of electric or gas energy supplied to the furnace into heat. Air conditioning units have also seen a huge increase in efficiency, lowering their cost to run. By paying the upfront cost of upgrading your HVAC system, you can actually end up saving money on your monthly energy bills, making up for the cost of the upgrade.

Improved Air Quality

While it may not seem like a big deal, especially if you live in an area where outdoor air quality is usually excellent, air quality is one of the largest determinants of human health. In buildings with old and inefficient HVAC systems, the air quality indoors can be significantly worse than the quality of air outside. Pollutants you may not think about such as dust, mold, and chemical vapors all exist in higher concentrations indoors compared to the outdoors. As HVAC systems age, they become less efficient and effective at filtering these pollutants out of the air, or circulating the air indoors with a fresh intake to lower the concentration of pollutants, providing major benefits for your health and safety in your own home.

Better Comfort

Finally, one of the best reasons to replace your HVAC system with a more efficient and modern model is simply better comfort. HVAC systems play a hugely important role in the enjoyment of your home. Not only are older HVAC systems less efficient, but they can also provide inconsistent heating and cooling, resulting in variations of room temperature across the house, and often operate loudly, such as a clunking furnace. Newer and more efficient HVAC models are much quieter, provide more even temperature regulation, and even offer smart controls so you can better enjoy your home.

Hall’s was very professional and pleasant to deal with. The technician that came out first to give me the quote was very informative and took his time inspecting all of my old equipment. He was able to tell me what I did and didn’t need to have replaced. I had a great experience with all of the crew at Hall’s Heating and Air and would highly recommend them!
