About a year ago, my husband and I finally upgraded the heating and cooling system in our home.
We’d gotten by with an extremely old furnace and air conditioner for nearly eight years.
There were constant problems with leaking refrigerant, inferior comfort, energy waste and air contamination. The ductwork had not been designed or installed properly and caused issues with certain rooms feeling overheated while others felt chilly. The severe weather in our local weather makes temperature a priority just about year round. The heating and cooling system significantly affects our budget and enjoyment of the home. We decided to spend more to purchase a top-of-the-line, high-efficiency furnace and air conditioner. We hired the HVAC contractor to fix the concerns with the ductwork. The new system includes some wonderful and helpful perks. It features variable speed technology that allows the equipment to adjust output to match the needs of the house and maintain very consistent temperature. It also provides zone control. We now have a thermostat installed in each room. These smart devices allow access through an app on our smartphones. With just a few taps of our fingers we can check the temperature, raise or lower the setting, increase or decrease fan speed and even focus on humidity levels. We cater the settings to the requirements of the single room. We no longer need to heat or cool empty rooms to the ideal comfort level. Each family member can personalize comfort in their bedroom. The bedrooms are no longer overheated all summer long. The living room isn’t chilly at night.
