South Carolina’s climate isn’t harsh, but the McClellanville area does experience weather conditions that would be uncomfortable for property owners without properly functioning heating and air conditioning systems. AC and heating systems last, on average, anywhere from 15 to 25 years if a system is properly maintained. However, it often pays to upgrade a system earlier to increase efficiency or comfort.
Local HVAC experts work with clients to develop maintenance schedules and determine what types of service would best meet each homeowner’s specific needs. It’s important to remember the various types of systems require different maintenance, so take the time to review your home’s systems with our team of experts to obtain the best results.
Understanding Air Quality Issues
In the past, homes tended to lack insulation and have a lot of drafts. That meant the air in a home was constantly being exchanged. Today, homes are much tighter, and the air within the dwelling might well become quite stale. Contaminants are not removed, and anyone with allergies or other respiratory issues is likely to be negatively affected by that stale, contaminated air.
Now, we better understand how to keep your home’s air quality levels higher and your family healthier. However, it may take a combination of efforts to achieve those objectives. Indoor Air Quality should never be ignored, as your family members’ health is at stake.
McClellanville’s winters are mild, but every home still needs some type of heating appliance to keep it comfortable during the winter months. Most area homes will benefit from a Complete Heating System Revivialization. For a modest fee, your home’s heating system will provide more heated air, and that air will be warmer.
How do we accomplish that? Since every system is somewhat different, we approach your home heating system needs on a custom level rather than simply using a checklist. However, you can always be sure we’ll take the steps needed to increase your system’s efficiency and reliability. Of course, a heating appliance that’s operating efficiently will also mean your utility bills will be lower than they would without proper maintenance.
In the event your home’s heating system needs to be replaced, we’ll take the time to review every option available and recommend systems that will meet your home’s needs. In some instances, that might mean simply replacing the existing unit with a similar one, but there are times when a different type of system might better meet your family’s requirements.
Most newer homes, and many older ones, now have some type of central air conditioning. Newer systems are efficient, and most are designed to last for years. However, if your current system is older, we might recommend upgrading to a new, high-efficiency system that’s designed to operate at a far lower cost than your old system.
As with a heating system, most homes will benefit from a Complete AC System Revivalization. There are right and wrong ways to service an AC system, and our experts want every client to know we take the steps required to clean, adjust, and recalibrate your comfort appliances to keep them functioning at peak capacity.
If your home doesn’t currently have any type of central air conditioning, we’ll look for ways to provide a level of comfort you’ll be happy with and, at the same time, keep your costs as low as possible. One way to provide the cool air you want for McClellanville’s hot summer days is to install a Mini-Split AC system. These units don’t require installing an extensive duct system and can be sized to meet the needs of most homes.
In some cases, our HVAC experts may also suggest installing a New Heating and Cooling System. It generally pays to replace all heating and cooling system components at one time, as the total costs are lower, and you can be sure your home will be comfortable throughout the year.
Don’t Forget About the Ductwork
Most ductwork has leaks that make your home less comfortable and increase your utility costs. We encourage our clients to have their home duct systems carefully evaluated to ensure there are no serious issues.
In most instances, we’ll recommend a complete Duct Cleaning to remove the contaminants that have built up over the years. Once the ducts are clean, it’s easier to spot problems, and even minor leaks will be noticeable.
Since the Department of Energy reports homeowners lose up to 30 percent of their heated and cooled air through leaks, we may also recommend Aeroseal Duct Sealing to ensure the air you’ve paid to heat or cool makes it the rooms needing it. The Aeroseal system works to eliminate even the smallest leaks in your home’s ducts.
We Know Maintaining and Replacing HVAC Systems Can Be Expensive
Far too many homeowners keep repairing old, inefficient heating and cooling appliances because they don’t think they can afford to install new units. That’s why we encourage our clients to take advantage of our Comfort Club and the many benefits a membership offers.
Arguably the most significant benefit is a club member’s ability to purchase an 18 SEER system for a 14 SEER price. These new systems are efficient and ultra-quiet. In addition, new systems can be controlled using an app.
In addition, you’re protected by one of the industry’s best warranties. You won’t have to worry about your heating and cooling system breaking down for years to come. The key is to ask us about becoming a club member now.
