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 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.

Is this the last season for your furnace? Signs you need a new heating system

It’s been a long winter here in South Louisiana. Luckily (or, given the heat and humidity, unluckily!) spring and summer are on their way. Was this the final season for your home’s furnace? In this blog, we’ll run through some of the reasons you should replace your furnace with a new system.

For more information—and a free in-home estimate on a new furnace—contact AxsomAir today.

#1. Your furnace has needed repairs the last few winters

If your furnace has needed a repair service visit from AxsomAir over the past few seasons, it might be a sign that it’s time to upgrade to a more reliable, newer heating system.

Over the course of multiple seasons, those heating repair bills can add up to a big expense for your and your family. Consider this: if you just put the money you were going to spend on repairs toward a new Trane—professionally installed by AxsomAir—you could avoid the headache of needing to have your system constantly breaking down.

#2. You’re spending more and more on your energy bills

If your energy bills have been going through the roof over the past few winter seasons, you’re in a position where you can save big by upgrading to a new furnace. That’s because your older furnace is not only energy inefficient by virtue of being old, but it’s also not up to the standards of today’s systems.

This is the same as the furnace repairs: if you’ve been spending more and more on your energy bills during the winter months, you can probably see how that money, when saved, would add up to a nice-sized chunk of the cost of a new system.

#3. Your furnace isn’t heating your home

In this scenario, your furnace is technically running and providing heat, but it just isn’t enough to meet what your home needs. As a result, you have hot and cold spots, and your system is constantly running to try to keep up.

A furnace that is no longer capable of heating your home should be replaced. After all, what’s the point of having a furnace if it’s not going to keep your home comfortable?
