Save energy and money with a heat pump system

Are you shopping for a new heating and air conditioning system for your home? You’ve likely heard that heat pump systems can save energy, reducing your carbon footprint and lowering your utility bills. Here’s what you need to know about how heat pump systems work and their benefits.

What are heat pumps?

Despite the name, heat pumps provide both heating and cooling with a single unit. Heat pumps use energy to pull heat from the air or ground and transfer it to the home. To cool the interior rooms, this process is reversed.

Customers can choose from three types of heat pumps:

  • Air-to-air heat pumps, the most common option, transfer heat from the external air into your home. They can reduce electricity use for heating by as much as 50 percent, according to the federal Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.
  • Water-source heat pumps use a nearby water source to the home to cool or heat air.
  • Ground-source heat pumps use geothermal energy, pulling heat from the ground rather than from a water source.

The right option for you depends on the size and layout of your home, the composition of the surrounding landscape, and other factors. If you’re interested in a heat pump for your home, contact AxsomAir for a free in-home estimate.

What are the benefits of heat pump systems?

Since Louisiana is a moderate climate and rarely has freezing temperatures, the heat pump is an ideal option for many homeowners in and around Natchitoches. These systems have multiple advantages:

  • Even distribution of heat throughout the home
  • Less energy consumption than a traditional gas or oil furnace
  • Improved dehumidification compared with standard air conditioning units
  • Utility bills reduced by 30 to 40 percent, according to the OEERE
  • Little required maintenance beyond monthly filter change and annual servicing
  • Lifespan of up to 30 years

Here’s why you should spend your tax refund on a new AC upgrade

It’s tax refund season. According to the IRS, most Americans can expect to see a refund this season. While many will spend their refund on vacations, cars, or boats, there are better long-term uses for the money.

In this blog, we’ll discuss why you should consider boosting your home’s value, curb appeal, and comfort by buying a new air conditioner from us here at AxsomAir.

Pictured: It's tax refund season, and it's time to take note.#1. Invest in your home’s value

Outside of paying down debt or investing your tax refund, the next-best use of the money is investing in your home’s value. That’s because your home’s equity is a relatively consistent asset; you’ll certainly get more, in the long-term, out of home upgrades than, say, buying a new car or taking a vacation.

If you have an older air conditioner, it makes sense to use your tax refund on a new AC upgrade. Here in our hot, humid summer climate here in Louisiana, a new air conditioner is a great selling point that can significantly raise your home’s value while providing you with comfort in the present.

#2. Boost the curb appeal of your home

This is related to your home’s value, but a bit different. In real estate, “curb appeal” refers to the reasons that prospective buyers decide to take a closer look at your home after seeing the listing online or hearing initial details from their realtor. If you’re thinking about selling your home in the next decade, the curb appeal of your home matters.

With online listing sites now prevalent, one of the first things a prospective buyer can see is the age of the HVAC systems. If you have an older system, they may decide to pass on your home altogether.

Why? Consider this: when you’re buying a home, on-hand cash is low. You have to pay not only the downpayment, but also closing costs, fees, and much more. Not only that, but the buyer also has to pay for moving and relocation costs, new furniture, home upgrades, and more. The last thing a new buyer wants is the hassle of an air conditioner on its last legs.

By using your tax refund to buy a new air conditioner—professionally installed by the team here at AxsomAir—your home’s curb appeal with benefit.

#3. Enjoy the comfort for yourself

Of course, buying a new air conditioner with your tax refund doesn’t have to be a dollars-and-cents decision. If you have an older air conditioner that just can’t keep up with what your family needs, you should make the switch and enjoy the comfort a new Trane provides.

Here are 4 reasons to schedule your AC tune-up with AxsomAir

As we exit winter, enter spring, and look forward to summer, our experienced techs are busy inspecting and maintaining air conditioners throughout Natchitoches and the surrounding areas. It’s that time of year: it’s time to schedule your AC tune-up with AxsomAir.

In this blog, we’ll review the top-4 reasons you should book your maintenance appointment with the pros here at AxsomAir.

#1. Save money this summer with greater energy-efficiency

Your air conditioner requires an annual checkup and tune-up to keep it running efficiently. In fact, an unmaintained system is an inefficient one, and one which will cost you extra money over the summer ahead.

Here in Louisiana, our combination of heat and humidity means that you’re probably running your air conditioner nearly 24-7 over the course of the summer. Even the smallest gains in efficiency, over each minute of the hottest months of the year, can result in big savings.

#2. Avoid breakdowns by scheduling professional maintenance

If better energy-efficiency isn’t enough of a perk, an AC tune-up can also help keep your system running throughout the summer without a breakdown. A professional HVAC technician from AxsomAir will inspect your air conditioner and fix small problems before they lead to a major system breakdown.

Not only is a breakdown inconvenient and uncomfortable, but the AC repair you’ll need represents an extra, surprise cost that would have been better spent on an AC tune-up.

#3. Extend your system’s life and protect its warranty

Just like with your car, a regular tune-up will help your air conditioner live a longer, more productive life. This matters: every year that you can put off having to replace your air conditioner because it’s still running great is a year where you save.

There’s another longevity-related reason to schedule maintenance. Many HVAC manufacturers include clauses in their warranties requiring you to schedule a professional annual checkup for your system. If you don’t, your warranty could be voided early.

Your system’s warranty is valuable. Protect it by continuing to have your system maintained on an annual basis.

#4. Improve your home’s indoor comfort

Comfort matters. A well-maintained air conditioner is not only more energy-efficient, but it’s also running better, meaning it’s cooling your home that much more quickly and keeping temperatures more consistent. The result? Summertime comfort for you and your family.

If your air conditioner has been prone to “temperature swings” in the past, make sure you have an AxsomAir tech take a look. These swings not only cause major discomfort, but also probably are burning extra energy.
