Cost & Time Savings

Replacing your air conditioner and furnace together can lead to significant cost and time savings in the long run.

Additionally, opting for a dual replacement eliminates the need for multiple installation visits, reducing labor costs and minimizing disruptions.

Our team is dedicated to providing reliable installation services, ensuring your system is up and running in no time.

Enhanced Energy Efficiency

Newer HVAC systems are designed to be more energy-efficient, helping you reduce your carbon footprint and lower your monthly utility bills. By upgrading both your air conditioner and furnace simultaneously, you ensure both components work seamlessly together, maximizing energy efficiency and overall performance. Plus, modern systems often come with advanced features such as programmable thermostats and zoning options. These allow you to customize your indoor climate and further optimize energy usage.

Warranty Considerations

When you replace your air conditioner and furnace together, you simplify the warranty process. This helps you avoid potential issues down the road. As a Lennox dealer, Hometown Heating, Air & Electric works with Lennox, which offers warranties that cover parts for a specified period. By installing both systems simultaneously, you ensure parts for both are protected under the same warranty terms.

As spring arrives, many of us look forward to spending more time outdoors and opening up our homes after a long winter spent mostly indoors. But after months of closed windows and doors, your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ) has likely diminished and needs some attention to restore healthier air. And while poor IAQ can negatively impact your health and wellbeing in numerous ways, often the last thing many people consider are indoor air quality solutions.

At Hometown Heating, Air & Electric, we want to educate our community with indoor air quality solutions so more people can have healthier homes.

Indoor Air Quality Solutions

Understand the Common Indoor Air Quality Issues

From pet dander to cooking grease, many pollutants become trapped inside your home over the winter months without proper ventilation. This stale, stagnant air circulates over and over, leading to diminished indoor air quality. In turn, this poor air quality allows allergens, dust, odors, smoke, and germs to build up. This can worsen allergies, asthma, sinuses, and even lead to more illnesses like common colds from the spread of germs in the air.

Use Air Purifiers and Cleaners

A good quality air purifier or cleaner is one of the best defenses against keeping indoor pollutants under control. Air purifiers effectively capture and remove allergens, dust, odors, smoke, pet dander, and other microscopic particles from the air. We recommend running your unit regularly to actively filter and refresh your indoor air and purchasing units properly sized for the square footage of your home for maximum effectiveness.

Add Humidity with a Humidifier

Low humidity levels can dry out your sinuses, skin, and hair. But too much humidity can lead to condensation on windows and the growth of mold and mildew. A humidifier maintains the ideal humidity level between 30-60% to balance better air quality and health. Proper humidity also helps preserve wooden furniture and floors in your home from drying out and cracking.

Ventilate with Fresh Outdoor Air

Finally, let fresh outdoor air in by using your HVAC system’s ventilation setting or by opening windows on nice days. Stale indoor air needs to be changed out regularly. Proper ventilation introduces new outdoor air and can significantly improve overall indoor air quality.

Don’t neglect your IAQ this spring! At Hometown Heating, Air & Electric, we provide expert installation, maintenance, and repair services to keep your indoor air quality so you can breathe easier all year long.

This spring, consider these indoor air quality solutions by using air purifiers, cleaners, and humidifiers and taking advantage of fresh, outdoor air. Contact us today with any questions about your indoor air quality and how Hometown Heating, Air & Electric can refresh your IAQ this spring.
