How Does Your HVAC System Stand Against Current Technology?

HVAC technology continues advancing steadily. Has your cooling and heating system kept up? You don’t necessarily need to replace the entire furnace and/or air conditioner to gain comfort and efficiency benefits provided by new add-ons and system enhancements. These improvements can increase the convenience of operation, lower your operating costs, and even extend the service life of certain components. Here are some suggestions for upgrading to more current HVAC technology.

Learning Thermostats

Available under several brand names, learning thermostats take customized temperature control to a new level of convenience and precision. In addition to programmable schedules, these models utilize sensors to “learn” your daily temperature habits as well as the household’s occupancy patterns. Data is crunched to fine-tune temperatures as well as accurately schedule the time of temperature adjustment. Learning thermostats are also Wi-Fi-connected for remote monitoring and control.

Automated Airflow

Systems now coming on the market replace conventional “dumb” ductwork with smart ducts controlled by sensors and connected to a central hub. The system adjusts furnace or A/C airflow volume entering specific rooms based on the comfort preferences of occupants in that room. Occupants can utilize an app to customize airflow and temperatures specific to each room in the house.

Whole-House Humidity Control

Individual room dehumidifiers can be a chore to maintain. Plus, they’re only effective in limited spaces like a single room. A whole-house dehumidifier is installed in your home ductwork and extracts humidity from all air circulating throughout the entire house. Condensate automatically flows down a household drain pipe, and exact desired relative humidity can be programmed on a wall-mounted humidistat.

Compressor Defense

Your A/C compressor is typically the single most expensive component in the system. Power surges damage compressors and necessitate costly replacement. Surge protectors purpose-built to protect the compressor are available. A qualified HVAC contractor can install the unit inside the central A/C for protection from surges originating on the grid and also internal power fluctuations.

HVAC technology has come a long way since we opened our doors in 1922. At Paitson Bros., we’re still keeping up with the latest advancements to keep your home comfortable and efficient.
