Is your air conditioner struggling to cool your home? According to Energy Star – a U.S Environmental Protection Agency voluntary program, most modern HVAC systems or air conditioners are built to last an average of 15 years, completely dependent on make & model, as well as your climate, how often you run the system, and how often your air conditioner is maintained.

Your air conditioner is something most of us take for granted, and never really give any consideration to until it breaks down & leaves us vulnerable to the elements. When this happens, you’ll rush to find an HVAC company to come to your home, and hope they provide a quick & easy fix. However, sometimes these “quick & easy fixes” can’t actually be completed easily, quickly, or even cheaply.

When this happens, you have a pretty big decision to make: repair or replace your existing air conditioner system? How can you know what the best decision is for you, your home, & your wallet?

The Most Efficient Heating System is One You Maintain Well! | Paschal

The most efficient heating system for your home is one that is energy efficient! There are a lot of options, and you can even use some systems in combination, to get the most efficient system. When we talk about efficiency, we should also keep in mind that this can be economic, environmental or even energy efficiency.

HVAC systems are getting more efficient as time goes along, and if your system is older, a new system could actually save you money in the long run. There is the initial cost of the new system, but a new system would likely be much more efficient and would result in lower utility bills that would eventually cost less.

Types of systems

There are several times of systems, including:



Wood burning

Heat pump

Natural gas



Making it efficient

There are various reasons to choose any system, and to some degree your personal preference will play a big role. Any system depends on regular maintenance such as changing filters. Having your home insulated well, and avoiding leakage of heat, are also things that can have a big impact on your heating bill, which is an efficiency issue. There are positives and drawbacks to any heating system, and your own habits will affect the overall efficiency to a large degree.

There are ratings such as SEER, for cooling, and HSPF for heating, which give some indication of how energy efficient a system is. It is a good idea to compare efficiency ratings to get the most efficient heating system.
