Why I switched to multi split cooling system

I have had a typical central cooling system unit for many years. Twenty years to be exact. I have had this central cooling system since I moved into our beach house 20 years ago. It was even a few years seasoned when I moved in. It was legitimately well past due to get a current cooling system but, hey, if it’s working why mess with it? Well, many weeks ago, the cooling system stopped working. I called our Heating plus Air Conditioning provider to let them suppose plus they sent out an Heating plus Air Conditioning provider that same day. The Heating plus Air Conditioning provider told myself and others that our cooling system would be cheaper to substitute than repair. That’s all I needed to hear. I asked the Heating plus Air Conditioning provider what type of improvements had been made to cooling system technology over the last twenty years. The Heating plus Air Conditioning worker told myself and others about an enormous array of technological advancements. The 1 that actually caught our attention was the multi split air conditioner. Multi split cooling system doesn’t have any HVAC duct (which, by the way, was the death of our seasoned cooling system). In addition, multi split cooling system is quieter, sleeker plus has a lifetime warranty. That’s right, lifetime warranty! Granted, the multi split cooling system was much more lavish than your proper cooling system, although I actually assume it’s worth it. Now that our multi split cooling system has been installed for a week, I can tell you that it was well worth the investment. If you’re considering the substitutement of your cooling system, I highly command the multi split cooling system option!

Have you heard of a geothermal heat pump?

I’m an HVAC technician.

I have been an HVAC technician since I was 19 years old and I love the job.

You would be amazed at some of the advancements that have been made in the HVAC industry over the last 20 years. One of the new HVAC technologies I would like to discuss with you today is a geothermal heat pump. Many of my customers have never heard of a geothermal heat pump before, so I wanted to talk a little bit about it today. Geothermal heat pumps are also known as ground source heat pumps. Essentially, this is a central heating and air conditioning system that transfers heat from (for heating) or to (for cooling) the ground. Geothermal heat pumps are significantly more efficient. For reference, a fossil fuel furnace (think of a typical furnace) can be about 90% efficient while geothermal heat pumps/ ground source heat pumps are 400% efficient. The difference is amazing. I will tell you right now, though, geothermal heat pump installation costs an order of magnitude more than the installation of your air conditioner/furnace type of heating and cooling system. Depending on your financial goals, geothermal heat pumps might not be the best option for you. However, if you’re looking for an extremely efficient form of heating and cooling- and you have the money for the installation- geothermal heat pumps might be a terrific option for you. Give me a call if you’re interested or would like to learn more about geothermal heat pumps (or any other type of heating and/or cooling solutions for you).

Hybrid heating

New thermostat with HVAC upgrade

When I first moved into my house, I signed up with an HVAC provider that gave me the option for an HVAC service plan.

Essentially, as long as I signed on with the HVAC service plan that- every 15 years- I would get a free HVAC upgrade.

Well, somehow, 15 years have come and gone and now it’s time for my HVAC upgrade. I told my HVAC provider that it’s very important to have a furnace and air conditioner with great SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings. I want to save on my monthly heating and cooling bill in addition to enjoying superior heating and cooling. My HVAC provider and I went through several different options for my furnace and air conditioner. After much consideration, I finally made my decision on the air conditioner and furnace that would take me through the next 15 years. When my HVAC provider sent out an HVAC technician to install the new HVAC system, they also installed a smart thermostat. I had been using a programmable thermostat up until they upgraded to the smart thermostat (free of charge). I have to say, I really love my smart thermostat. If you’re thinking about upgrading your HVAC system, or even if you’re just looking for a better thermostat, allow me to recommend a smart thermostat. The smart thermostat automatically changes your temperature to a more energy-efficient one when you leave the house and then makes the temperature more comfortable when you come home. It’s not from programming either, the smart thermostat knows when the door opens/when people are gone. It’s really cool.

How much does indoor air quality really matter?

Ok, listen, I have a bit of a reputation as someone who tends to be contrary.

I’m from New York, what do you want? Anyway, in the midst of all of this covid-19 stuff, I’ve heard a lot about people worried about their indoor air quality.

I’ve seen a lot of information packets and emails sent to me from HVAC providers talking about how to improve your indoor air quality and what the correct humidity in your home should be…you know, stuff like that. I’m just wondering- and, don’t bite my head off here- how important is indoor air quality? Sure, you should vacuum and clean out your ductwork, switch out your air filter and such. I get that you don’t want people living like animals, but when it comes to humidity and HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Absorbing) air filters vs MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) air filters vs washable air filters…how much of a difference does any of this even make? I’m all about indoor air quality and cleanliness, it’s just that I haven’t heard of any of this before and would be interested to know how much of a difference any of this makes. Do you know? Let me know. If I’m completely missing the point, just tell me. From what I’m seeing though, I don’t know that it will make a huge difference. Has anyone experienced the difference between these different indoor air quality solutions? I would like to know if there’s something else I should be doing or if keeping things clean and wiping down with disinfectant is really enough. Thanks.

Stay awake!

I was up all night last night unable to fall asleep.

I had a genuinely long & pressing meeting to attend at my Heating and A/C headquarters discussing the new model of cooling system & gas furnace our Heating and A/C supplier was about to release.

I knew I needed to have a sharp mind while I was in this meeting, but since I wasn’t able to sleep that night, or the night before, I was afraid of falling asleep while I was in this pressing Heating and A/C meeting, and the day of the meeting came & I was in the Heating and A/C office half an minute early. I sat at the table waiting for the Heating and A/C managers to come for the meeting. I felt myself beginning to drift to sleep & jolted awake, then how was I going to stay awake for this whole meeting? Then I saw on the wall a smart control unit. I realized that the room’s temperature was controlled by this smart control unit & a wonderful system popped into my head. I went to the smart control unit & connected my iPhone to it; Now if I started to fall asleep I could just use my iPhone to change the temperature on the smart control unit, make the room cool, & thus help me stay awake. When the meeting started, I was genuinely interested in the new a/c & gas furnace models, which helped me stay awake, but after one minute in the meeting, I felt myself beginning to fall asleep. I used my iPhone to change the temperature on the smart control unit & cool the room. I was amazed at how well a little cool air helped me stay awake; From that meeting on, I always used the smart control unit to help me stay awake.

It will cost you thoUSnds of dollars to get your a/c unit & gas furnace installed by a professional Heating and A/C mechanic, & these costs can surprise anyone who was not expecting them, but one way to save money is to try & do some of the Heating and A/C installing yourself.

  • If you or your partner is great with their hands & can install an cooling system or gas furnace, by all means have them install your Heating and A/C units & save the thoUSnds of dollars it would cost to have an Heating and A/C mechanic do the installing.

While shopping for Heating and A/C for your new beach house can be thrilling, keep in mind the cost of the unit itself, & the cost of running it. a/c unit & gas furnace energy bills can suddenly creep up to thoUSnds of dollars if you aren’t careful.
