3 Benefits of Upgrading Your Thermostat

Written by: Metro Air

An HVAC system that works well year round is critical, but did you know that your thermostat is important to the overall functioning of your system? Keeping control of your furnace accurately can be difficult if you have an old, inefficient thermostat. Your thermostat has a big impact on how your heating and cooling system works, so upgrading to a new one has some great benefits.

Benefit #1: Accurate temperatures.
Say goodbye to cold air spots or rooms that are colder or hotter than other areas of the house. Old thermostats will many times have significant variation in temperatures, which means that your home may not be at the exact temperature you want it to be due to uneven heating or cooling. Not only this, your utility bills may be on the rise because your thermostat is causing your HVAC system to work harder. A new, basic thermostat with digital display or push buttons can help you set the temperature of your home accurately, which means you have a more comfortable home year round.

Benefit #2: Convenience.
You’re busy and you don’t want to have to think about adjusting your thermostat all the time. Programmable thermostats are great options, simply because you don’t need to manually adjust your thermostat every time you want to change the temperature. Set the temperatures one time and program it to work around your specific schedule. For example, if you leave during the day for work, you can program the thermostat to turn down the heat while you’re away, then program it to come back on before you get home. This also helps save energy and money on your utility bill.

Benefit #3: Smart technology.
Technology is always changing and the HVAC industry is continually making upgrades on how to integrate smart technology into thermostats and systems. Many digital thermostats out there nowadays can be connected to the Internet or WiFi so you can keep track of your energy use, access energy reports to show how you’re using your energy, and make changes to temperatures if needed.

With so many new, energy efficient thermostats on the market today, there’s no need for you to keep using your old one. Feel free to contact us for information on what thermostat might work best for your home and your budget. You’ll notice a big difference in the comfort of your home right away!

Reasons Why 2017 is the Year to Install a Heat Pump

Written by: Metro Air

Winter is here and your heater is likely one of your best friends right now.  If you’re tired of using separate systems to keep your home comfortable throughout the year, 2017 is the perfect time to consider installing a heat pump. Heat pumps are fantastic options for many homeowners because that will heat and cool your home all year long!

No matter how big or small your home is, a heat pump is an affordable option that can keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Comfort is at the tip of your fingers! Here are some of the main reasons why you should consider installing an energy efficient heat pump in your home.

Reason #1: You’ll be able to live in ultimate comfort.
No matter how what the weather decides to do outside, you’ll be able to stay comfortable inside, year-round. Not only that, the heat pump will help circulate clean air throughout your home and the temperature will be consistent throughout. You get to pick what temperature is most comfortable for you, then click the button. Easy!

Reason #2: They’re incredibly quiet.
Many times, new heat pumps are so quiet, you’ll hardly notice that they’re on. Say goodbye to that loud, clanging, inefficient air conditioning unit goodbye in the summer and you can forget about turning on those money-sucking wall heaters or baseboard heaters in the winter again. You won’t need either of these with a heat pump. They run at lower capacities, which means they’re quieter and more energy efficient.

Reason #3: You’ll save money.
Because of their energy efficiency ratings, you’ll likely see a drop in your utility bill every month. In addition, if you decide to get one installed, there are oftentimes tax credits, rebates, or other cash incentives that can help you save even more money. We can help you determine which system is right for you and walk you through the process of applying any discounts that are available.
