1.Properly Sized Unit- Make sure the new unit you put into your home is the right size for your
home today. Top contractors will complete an electronic load calculation estimate to determine
the exact type of heat and air conditioning system for your home rather than just replacing with
the same size unit you currently have. These calculations take into consideration things such as
the size of your home, which direction it faces, the number and size of windows, insulation and
more. This load calculation is especially important if you have added or lost insulation or
changed features of your home such as adding rooms.

2.Use current refrigerant technology- Some contractors may pull units from existing stocks that
were manufactured prior to 2010 or in other markets that do not adhere to U.S. standards. These
older units use R-22 refrigerant. While this type of refrigerant met industry standards in the past, it
is not up to par with the new industry standard R410A/ Puron Refrigerant. This new refrigerant
takes the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) from 13 to 22 driving up to 7% efficiency
improvement and increasing your comfort.

3.Choose the Right Filtration System- The correct filtration system in your heat and air
conditioning system can help minimize how much of that comes into your home. These
pollutants can include things such as pollen, bacteria, plant spores, atmospheric and household
dust and more. Adding electronic air cleaners as part of your new system can filter out up to 95%
of the particulates that pass through your system.

4.Know your Energy Star rating- Energy Star rated heating and air conditioning products,
properly sized and installed, can save you up to 20% on your annual energy bills. All products
that carry the Energy Star rating have met very strict energy efficiency guidelines as established
by the EPA

5.Find a good contractor- Is your contractor licensed and bonded? Does your contractor have
adequate insurance? What warranties do they provide for both materials and labor? Does the
contractor obtain the proper permits and follow all local and regional codes and regulations?
How reliable is the contractor? What work have they done in your area? Be sure to ask these
questions before you hire!

6.How are your ducts?  The air that is pumped out of your heat and air conditioning unit flows
through ducts. How efficiently that flow moves has a large impact on your costs and the
performance and life of your unit.

7.Insulate - A good contractor will discuss this with you and make recommendations to ensure you
have the right level of insulation to optimize the performance of your new system. This will ensure
that there is no unnecessary energy loss and that monthly expenses are kept to a minimum. This is
especially important if you have an older home, if it seems your furnace or air conditioning seems
to run constantly or if your energy bills seem high

8.Think beyond your purchase- One of the most important elements of your new system is the
service you receive after the installation is complete. Does your contractor offer a standard
warranty? What does that include: product, labor, parts? For what length of time does the warranty
cover? Is there an extended warranty? What does that include? For how long? What does it cost?
How are service calls requested? Is there a cost? Will the company be around for the next 10
years to service the unit they install?

9.Fit the unit to your home and local region-  Depending on where you live, you have a variety of
choices on the type of heating and air conditioning unit you install in your home. Heat pumps
tend to be used in southern locations while furnaces or oil burning heating units proliferate in the

10.Price isn't everything- While price should be a consideration, the most important part of the
decision should be value and return on investment. Does the unit match your comfort needs and
home? In the long run a lower price unit might actually cost you more. Will purchasing additional
equipment provide value over the long term, for example programmable thermostats, humidifiers
or electronic air cleaners?
An obsolete furnace can be very expensive.  The efficiency of your heating and cooling systems
can make a major difference in your energy bills.  If you intend to stay in your home long term.   
Upgrading from an old inefficient equipment to a new, high-efficiency model can pay for itself
and improve your comfort.

If your HVAC Systems were installed before 1992, you’re probably wasting 30 percent or more of
your energy from your system. If you have an older forced-air furnace operating at very low
efficiencies, it probably produces about half the heat it could be providing on the same amount
of fuel.
By purchasing high efficiency equipment and having it properly installed, a homeowner can lower
their energy bills, increase comfort in their home, and extend the useful life of their equipment.  
Avoid common installation problems that can reduce the efficiency of your home. These
improvements to efficiency can reduce your heating and cooling costs by as much as 30%.

These industry practices help ensure that your new equipment is:

1. Proper Sizing of Equipment- Installing the right size equipment for your home is essential to
getting the best performance for your heating and cooling equipment and maintaining comfort.

2. Sealing Ducts-  Often ducts have damage or poor connections that leak the hot or cold air and
waste a lot of energy. Sealing ducts can greatly improve the efficiency of your heating and
cooling system.

3. Optimizing Air Flow-  To operate well, a heating or cooling system needs to have the proper
volume of air flow. If air flow is too high or too low , it may make the home less comfortable and
increase utility bills.

4. Proper Refrigerant Charge -(Central Air Conditioners )It is important for an air conditioner or
heat pump to have the correct amount of refrigerant, or correct refrigerant charge. An improperly
charged system may consume more energy and provide less dehumidification.
Energy Efficient Installations
1. Change your air filter regularly-  Check your filter every month, especially during heavy use
months (winter and summer). If the filter looks dirty after a month, change it. At a minimum,
change the filter every 3 months. A dirty filter will slow down air flow and make the system work
harder to keep you warm or cool — wasting energy. A clean filter will also prevent dust and dirt
from building up in the system — leading to expensive maintenance and/or early system failure.

2. Tune up your HVAC equipment yearly-   Just as a tune-up for your car can improve your gas
mileage, a yearly tune-up of your heating and cooling system can improve efficiency and

3. Install a programmable thermostat- A programmable thermostat is ideal for people who are
away from home during set periods of time throughout the week. Through proper use of
preprogrammed settings, a programmable thermostat can save you about $180 every year in
energy costs.

4. Seal your heating and cooling ducts-  Sealing and insulating ducts can improve the
efficiency of your heating and cooling system by as much as 20 percent.

Focus first on sealing ducts that run through the attic, crawlspace, unheated basement, or
garage. Use duct sealant (mastic) or metal-backed (foil) tape to seal the seams and connections
of ducts. After sealing the ducts in those spaces, wrap them in insulation to keep them from
getting hot in the summer or cold in the winter. Next, look to seal any other ducts that you can
access in the heated or cooled part of the house.

5. Install ENERGY STAR qualified heating and cooling equipment-  If your HVAC equipment is
more than 10 years old or not keeping your house comfortable, have it evaluated by a
professional HVAC contractor. If it is not performing efficiently or needs upgrading, consider
replacing it with a unit that has earned the ENERGY STAR. Depending on where you live,
replacing your old heating and cooling equipment with ENERGY STAR qualified equipment can
cut your annual energy bill by nearly $200. But before you invest in a new HVAC system, make
sure that you have addressed the big air leaks in your house and the duct system. Sometimes,
these are the real sources of problems rather than your HVAC equipment.

6. Proper Installation of your new equipment-  Find the right contractor. Replacing your old
heating and cooling equipment with new, energy-efficient models is a great start. But to make
sure that you get the best performance, the new equipment must be properly installed. In fact,
improper installation can reduce system efficiency by up to 30 percent.  Costing you more on
your utility bills and possibly shortening the equipment's life.
