  • Heat Pump Myths

    Heat Pumps – Don’t Believe the Myths

    Natural Gas is Warmer

    False!  The average heat pump air supply temperature is 90°F.  However, the normal body temperature is 98.6°F.  An electric pump maintaining 75 or so degree space temperature is evenly heating the room.  Gas heat feels warmer because gas heating systems produce an air supply temperature of about 120°F.  This makes it feel warmer against the skin if you stand near a vent; however, the space temperature is no warmer than that kind of an electric heat pump.

    Natural Gas is Cheaper

    False! Heat pumps have high HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) as SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings, which measure the efficiencies of heating and cooling, respectively.  Energy costs for a building may be significantly less when a heat pump system is used.  With today’s energy costs, it would be cost efficient.

    Why it’s So Efficient

    Transferring heat takes less energy than producing heat, making it energy-efficient.  You can save valuable energy dollars with a heat pump.  It can cost 25 to 50% less to run a heat pump than an electric resistance heating system.  This can make a big difference in savings.
  • How does a Heat Pump Work?

    How Your Heat Pump Works

    In the winter months, a heat pump takes heat from the outside air and moves it inside the home. Heat is extracted to where it’s needed most inside, warming your home.  Even the coldest winter air has heat available. Temperatures would have to reach -460°F, or absolute zero, for no heat to be available in the air.

    During summer months, heat is extracted from the air indoors and moved outside.  In the summer months, the heat is extracted from the building as it’s absorbed into the refrigerant inside the fan unit in your basement, attic or closet.  The refrigerant carries the heat to an outdoor unit where it’s transferred outside.  When removing the hot air - this makes the air in the building cooler.

    Winter

    In cold weather, the heat pump draws warm air into the house for dependable heating.  This efficiency will save energy dollars.

  • Heat Pump Facts

    The Facts about Heat Pumps

    An electric heat pump is the most comfortable and most efficient way to heat and cool your home. In warm weather, you’ll enjoy a pleasingly cool home, and in cold weather, your heat pump circulates warm air evenly throughout every room.

  • What to know before you buy a Heat Pump

    Before You Buy a Heat Pump

    Consult with a licensed heating and cooling contractor to calculate the costs of installation and operation.  Factors include your home’s size, insulation, weather-stripping, ducts and the heat pump unit you select.  Similar to central and room air conditioning, a heat pump’s heating and cooling capacities are measured in BTUs per hour.

    • Make sure that a licensed contractor determines if the heat pump and duct system are properly sized for your home and the different factors listed.
    • Have a licensed heating and cooling contractor do a complete heat loss/gain analysis for your home.
    • Make sure you evaluate your duct system to ensure it’s properly designed and sealed.  Your duct system will need to complement your new heat pump equipment for maximum efficiency performance.
    • Check the SEER Rating
    • Choose a heat pump with a high SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating. The higher the rating, the lower the operating cost of the unit.  Energy Guide labels with SEER ratings are posted on all air conditioners and heat pumps.
  • What are the advantages to a Heat Pump?

    Heat Pump Advantages

    In order to make sure that your heat pump reaches its maximum potential, remember a few, simple facts and you’re on your way to saving energy and money.

    A heat pump can save you an average up to 30% on heating costs when compared to a gas furnace, and provides year-round comfort.  With today’s soaring energy costs, it’s even more important to compare potential savings.
    A high-energy electric heat pump provides a continuous flow of heat and helps maintain even temperatures throughout your home.  Gas furnaces often only heat certain areas that are in close proximity which can cause uncomfortable hot spots.

    Electric heat pumps do not have an open flame, so there’s no possibility of fuel leaks or carbon monoxide poisoning.

  • What is Central Air Conditioner Energy Efficiency?

    Energy Efficiency

    To reduce wasted energy, the U.S. Department of Energy has established minimum efficiency standards for central air conditioning system. Every unit is given an efficiency rating, called a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating). This is listed on the yellow Energy Guide label posted on each unit. It's very important to look at these ratings-the higher the number, the more efficient the unit and the lower the cost to provide a given amount of cooling.

    The minimum allowable SEER rating for new central air conditioners is 13. The most efficient models have SEERs of 15 to 19. When buying, watch the terminology. "High efficiency" models are actually those that meet the minimum SEER standard of 13.

  • What is Your IAQ (Indoor Air Quality)?

    Smart Choices to Stay Comfortable and Save Money

    Allergies

    Do you or any of your family members suffer from allergies, asthma or other respiratory ailments? The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases has estimated that 11 percent of the U.S. population, or 22 million Americans, suffer from allergies or asthma caused primarily by reaction to biological contaminants, such as mold spores, pollen and dust mites.

    A Trane or Westinghouse System brings relief to allergy sufferers by removing up to 94% of unwanted contaminants in the air. In fact, this air cleaner is so effective, it's considered equivalent to a MERV 16 filter. By comparison, a typical disposable filtered is rated MERV 1.

    Chemical Vapors

    Do you or any of your family members often feel nauseous, listless or dizzy? The EPA has found that in a typical day spent at home, people are likely to breathe in about two to five times more chemicals than they would if they had spent the day outside. For some people, this may mean headaches, dizziness and shortness of breath. For others, particular seniors and small children, the effects can be devastating and long lasting.

    To combat the ill effects of chemical vapors, try the PureAir™ air purification system, the only indoor air quality product that safely removes and destroys 50% of household odors and chemical vapors in a 24-hour period.

    Pollutants

    Are there any pets or smokers in your household?

    Pollutants like pet dander and tobacco fumes can cause poor indoor air quality, which in turn may cause dizziness and headaches, plus aggravate allergies and asthma.

    Do you feel better when you are away from home?

    Unfortunately, the place where you feel most safe and secure - home sweet home - is the place that can be most harmful to your health. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside your home or office may be up to five times more polluted than the air outside.

    If you're wondering whether you need to clear the air in your home or office, Contact Us to help you to select the correct air purification product that will work the best for you and your budget.

  • What does my warranty cover?

    Am I Covered?

    Under the standard factory warranty, Trane or Westinghouse covers the parts, and your installer covers the labor. A warranty certificate was included with your homeowner information packet, and is specific to the model numbers, serial numbers and installation dates of your products. If you cannot find your warranty certificate, your All Weather AC dealer will also be able to provide you with the information.

  • Which Trane or Westinhouse equipment will best fit my home?

    Which Equipment is the Right Equipment?

    There are many factors that affect the sizing and specifications of your system, including square footage, insulation, window surface and configuration, geographic location of your home, duct sizing and arrangement, and many others. Your All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning dealer can perform an in-home load analysis to determine which equipment combinations will perfectly suit your home and your family's needs.

  • New installation or repair currrent heat or air system?

    Buy New or Repair

    Consider installing new equipment when repairs are frequent and /or the unit is over 10 years old.

  • How will you know if my equipment is still under warranty?

    Warranties

    Generally we can look at the serial number and determine the age of the equipment. If we can not determine, we will ask the equipment dealer to verify.

  • When do you recommend preventative maintenance?

    Preventative Maintenance?

    We recommend late Winter or early Spring for air conditioning and mid to late Fall for heating. We recommend two services a year. Another preventive maintenance item is to check your filter monthly.

  • How can I reduce my heating and cooling costs?

    Want to reduce your costs?

    Clean the coil regularly (at least once a year). Check the air filter monthly and if it is dirty then clean or replace it. Keep the thermostat at a constant temperature rather than adjusting it up or down frequently.  To reduce heat gain, pull drapes or shades over sun-facing windows.

    Also...

    When possible, minimize mid-day activities that add humidity to the air, such as washing and drying clothes, showering, and cooking. When doing these activities use ventilating fans.
