5 Benefits Of Installing An Energy-Efficient Heating System
1. Lower Monthly Heating Bills
No one likes a high heating bill. Install an energy-efficient heating system in your home and watch as the bill shrinks and your satisfaction increases.
2. Smaller Carbon Footprint
Eco-conscious homeowners should know that high-efficiency heating systems use roughly 30%-50% less power than conventional systems. This means your home will use less fossil fuel energy and emit less carbon dioxide, which can positively impact the environment.
3. Longer System Life Cycle
A majority of the wear and tear in your heating system comes from the startup cycle. High-efficiency systems perform fewer startup cycles, helping save moving parts and electrical components from wearing out. This helps extend the life of the fan and belts. Our technicians provide dependable heating replacement services in Athens, GA and are available to help you pick a new system that will last for years.
4. Less Maintenance
No one likes needing to call for heating system maintenance, especially when you have to do it frequently. With an energy-efficient unit, there is less need for maintenance or repairs. These systems are better sealed, meaning less dust and debris can get in and interfere with internal parts. Since energy-efficient systems use electric ignition, you don’t have to worry about pilot light issues.
5. Increased Comfort
Your new energy-efficient heating system will likely come with a few features that will make the indoor environment more comfortable in your home. One of them is a variable-speed motor which operates at a lower speed for long durations. The result is a consistent flow of warm air throughout the home.
In addition, an advantage of hiring a professional to perform a heating replacement is choosing a heating system with an energy recovery ventilator. This feature captures heat from flue gasses and uses it to warm incoming air. It also helps your home maintain steady indoor humidity and creates a comfortable home environment.
4 Signs You Need a Heating System Upgrade
1. Your System is Old
Most heating systems are designed to last around 10 years. If your system is over 10 years old, it may not operate as efficiently and will likely need more repairs than a newer system would. Our team provides innovative heating installation services in Alpharetta, GA and have the tools necessary to inspect your old heating system. Once the inspection is complete, we will be able to confirm if you need a new heating system in your house.
2. Strange Noises
While some furnace noises can be fixed with a repair, others can be cause for concern and signal that your heating system may be on its last leg. Keep track of how often you catch your furnace making odd noises. If it’s more often than not, you should contact a professional technician for a heating upgrade.
3. You Are Remodeling Your Home
If you’ve added a room to your home or downsized it, you should upgrade your heating system to accommodate the changes. Your current system may not heat the new space as efficiently.
4. Your Air Ducts Are in Poor Condition
Even if your furnace is in good shape, that will not matter if your ductwork is in poor condition. Ductwork with cracks or holes can cause your system to work harder than usual. While duct sealing can sometimes be a fix, if your ducts are in very bad shape, you are better off upgrading them.

Updates to the Regional HVAC Equipment Efficiency and Testing Standards
Effective January 1, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will update its efficiency and testing standards for residential and commercial HVAC equipment. All regulatory changes will differ by product type and region. Since the updated standards will result in price increases across all HVAC contractors, now is the time to buy the equipment you need for your home or business.
The minimum efficiency standards for residential and commercial air conditioners and heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will increase production efficiency and national energy savings while decreasing national energy consumption.
Northern U.S. & Canada
All split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured after January 1, 2023, must meet the updated standards. However, split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured before January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 13 SEER to 15 SEER in these regions.
Split-system air conditioners manufactured before January 1, 2023, can’t be installed once the updated standards take effect. All installations of products that don’t meet the new standards must be completed by December 31, 2022. However, split-system heat pumps, single-packaged air conditioners, and single-packaged heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 14 SEER to 15 SEER in both the Southwest and Southeast regions.
In addition to higher minimum efficiency standards, the M1 testing procedures used for residential and 3 to 5-ton light commercial, single-phase equipment manufactured on or after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will produce more accurate SEER, EER, and HSPF efficiency ratings. Manufacturers will be required to re-test equipment using the new M1 Standard requirements as well as publish equipment efficiency ratings using the new efficiency metrics of SEER2, EER2, and HSPF2.
