Everyone enjoys saving money. Sometimes, though, to save money, you have to spend money. Such is the case when it comes to spending money on a new heating system from Texas Pride AC & Heating. Although you will need to make a significant investment upfront to install a new heating system, that investment will pay off through the years in the form of lower costs overall. Therefore, if you’re thinking of upgrading the heating system in your Houston home, you could be in for some surprise savings that make the project more than worth it.
1. Fewer Repair Costs
As a heating system ages, it begins to show signs of wear and tear. Eventually, your heating system will require repair. While many of these repairs are routine and fairly inexpensive, some repairs can get quite pricy. If you have a new heating system that’s properly installed by Texas Pride AC & Heating, though, you will experience far fewer problems with your heating system. This will significantly reduce your repair costs and allow you to experience longer periods of uninterrupted comfort and less unexpected downtime.
2. Lower Energy Costs
Unless your heating system is only a few years old, you can expect to see greatly reduced utility bills when you install a new heating system from Texas Pride AC & Heating. That’s because newer systems are required by law to meet certain minimum efficiency standards to help meet federal energy goals. Plus, the companies that produce heating systems constantly look for ways to significantly increase the efficiency of their systems to make them more appealing to customers. Therefore, a new heating system can be good for your wallet and the environment, thanks to its lower energy consumption.
3. Less Need for Home Repairs
An old heating system can cause problems with other parts of your home, as well. For example, an older heating system may not be able to deliver adequate amounts of warm air to certain rooms in your home. This means that the materials and items in those rooms will be exposed to colder-than-recommended temperatures for long periods of time. Cold temperatures can lead to cracked wood, frozen pipes, and other issues. Plus, an old heating system can cause excess wear and tear on your ductwork, which can be quite expensive to repair or replace.
4. More Efficient Is Always Better
When you’re selecting a heating system from Texas Pride AC & Heating for your home, it’s important to choose the most efficient system that you can afford. Fortunately, there are several different options to help you choose an efficient system that fits easily within your budget.
The most basic type of heating system is a single-stage gas furnace. Although not as efficient as other types of heating systems, a single-stage furnace can still achieve efficiencies of 80% or more. You can also choose an electric furnace. Most electric furnaces boast efficiencies of 100%. However, since electricity is more expensive than natural gas, you tend to save more money if you opt for a gas unit.
You can also choose a dual- or multi-stage gas furnace. These furnaces have multiple levels of heating to match the conditions in your home. Since they can shift to a lower level of heating, they can save energy over a single-stage furnace.
The most efficient type of heating system is a heat pump. Heat pumps come in both ground-source and air-source varieties. Air-source heat pumps extract heat from the outside air and send it into your home. Ground-source heat pumps extract heat from the ground, making this type of heating system the most efficient.
5. Treat Your System Well
When you install a new heating system from Texas Pride AC & Heating, it’s important to make efforts from day one to help your system to last as long as possible. The best way to take care of your heating system is to properly maintain it throughout the year. Keeping the air filter clean will help to reduce the strain on your system. You’ll also want to have professionals stop by for seasonal maintenance before you put your system to use every year.
