When it’s time to replace your system, we make the process easy to understand.
It’s important to understand something that you’re going to rely on for 12+ years. That’s why we lay out all of your options and explain the benefits of each. We want you to be comfortable with your investment. We also want to make sure you’re comparing apples to apples when you get quotes.
When you decide to replace your air conditioner, furnace or heat pump, we want you to understand exactly what you’re investing in. We know that with as many ratings as there are these days, it can get a little confusing. Below we have summarized them for you.
SEER – This stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. Think of it like a math equation because, that is essentially what it is. Divide cooling output by electricity usage and you get the SEER rating. Or more specifically, electrical input needed to run the system to the amount of cooling it generates. The higher the SEER rating, the better. You can cut down on power consumption by upgrading to a unit with a higher SEER rating.

EER – You guessed it, it stands for energy efficiency ratio! This evaluates the operating efficiency of the unit. This is calculated by dividing output cooling energy by input electrical energy. SEER and EER are displayed on new units. To ensure your system runs as efficiently as it’s rated to, you must maintain your unit. Regular maintenance and filters changes are a must.

Energy Star – This rating was created by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). It’s simply the energy efficiency rating of a product. A neutral 3rd party tests the system to ensure it meets a particular set of requirements.

Want to do further research about what those requirements are? Visit Energy Star for more information. (That’s a direct link to the program requirements.)

When shopping for your new unit, of course you want to make sure you are comparing apples to apples. This guide should help you be able to accomplish just that. As one would expect, the higher the SEER rating, the higher the cost of equipment. Be sure to keep in mind that you’ll save money in the long run by getting a higher SEER unit.

When your furnace, heat pump or air conditioner has stopped working, we know you want someone to fix it quickly. That’s why we have technicians on standby 24 hours a day, 7 days a week….even Holidays!

In the event that your system requires a repair, you can feel confident in knowing that there’s a LIFETIME warranty on every part we replace. We have over 50 years of experience and have been serving the community since 1989.

If your HVAC system stops working properly, chances are you’ll soon have an HVAC technician at your home diagnosing the problem. We’ve put together a guide to help you navigate through the repair process with a better understanding of a few terms you’ll likely hear.

Condenser Coil – Located outside and pushes heat out. This component holds refrigerant.

Evaporator Coil – Located indoors and absorbs heat. Also holds refrigerant.

Two Stage Cooling – An automatically adjusting component. It can operate at two speeds: high and low.  Which speed it runs on is based upon how hot it is outside.

Zones or Zoning – Created to increase comfort through the home and to help eliminate extreme hot or extreme cold rooms. Zones are controlled from your thermostat. Each zone controls a set of vents. Within the vents are dampers which change the direction of air flow.

Duct Work – Tubes that carry conditioned air to the rooms within a space.

Variable Speed – This refers the motor on the indoor unit that adjusts based upon what the thermostat is calling for and what the home requires.

Refrigerant – This is the gas that cools the air within your home through the coils. There are two main types: R-22, which is being phased out by the EPA  and R-410A, which is the more environmentally friends replacement of R-22.

Compressor – The heart of your air conditioner. It converts refrigerant from a low pressure gas to a high pressure gas.

Float Switch – This is a sensor usually attached to the drain pan on your furnace. If water reaches a certain height, the sensor will shut the system off automatically so that you don’t end up with water damage within your home.

Condensate Drain – Your evaporator coil creates condensation. This water leaves your home via the condensate drain, which leads all the way outside. These can clog from time to time and need to be cleared.

Accutemp Planned Maintenance Agreement

Having your system maintained regularly is one of the most important steps in maintaining the efficiency of your unit. An HVAC system that is properly maintained will experience a much longer life than one that is not.

Our technicians are trained to work on all makes and models of equipment. Whether you need a furnace, air conditioner, heat pump, air handler or a ductless HVAC system tune up, we have you covered. We check to make sure your system is running safely and properly within our 15 point check. We’ll lubricate any parts that require it and we’ll change out your air filter. You can opt to have a one time service or you can sign up for our Planned Maintenance Agreement.

There are many advantages to having a Planned Maintenance Agreement with AccuTemp Heating and Cooling. First, you don’t have to remember when this needs to be done. Our office will call you in the spring to schedule your cooling tune-up and in the fall to schedule your heating tune-up. Second, if at any point your system breaks down while you’re covered under our plan, we’ll give you a 15% discount off any repairs made. Third, if your system does encounter a problem, we’ll give you preferential treatment in scheduling.
