Save energy this summer by switching your old AC to a new model

This summer season, do yourself and your family a favor by considering switching your old AC to a new model. Make the change from your current, worn-out AC unit to an energy-efficient Carrier system. It’s easy to enjoy the many benefits such a change can offer.

King Heating, Cooling & Plumbing is here to keep you and everyone else in your home as comfortable as possible no matter the time of year. In this blog, we’ll discuss the benefits of upgrading to a new air conditioner this summer.

Boost your home’s energy-efficiency

While installing your new unit, you might find out that there are several reasons your home isn’t as energy efficient or kept as comfortable as you’d like for it to be. For instance, it might be that you need a new unit and that your home’s insulation isn’t as great as it should be.

There might also be energy leaks in your home as well as leaks around your windows and doors that need to be addressed. There’s little need to get a new air conditioner and leave it at that if more work needs to be done to your property.

Invest money rather than waste it

When you spend money on repairs to an older HVAC unit that’s really starting to show its age, what you’re doing is wasting money rather than making a good investment. This is because your money is better spent on a newer unit that will last longer, rather than on a unit that’s likely going to completely fail soon.

Get the right-sized unit for your home

You can also save energy by getting the correctly-sized air conditioner for your property. Units that are either too big or too small drive up energy costs. Also, a unit that’s too large for your home is likely to fail faster than an accurately-sized unit.

This is why it’s vital that you choose a reputable and experienced company (like King!) for switching your old AC to a new model.

Make the switch to a demand-type water heater!

Hot water is one of those things that you don’t truly appreciate until you no longer have it. From showering and washing your dishes to doing your laundry, there’s a lot you need hot water for. That’s just one of the many reasons you should consider making the switch to a demand-type water heater.

Demand-type, or tankless water heaters, have many benefits compared to standard water heaters. In this blog, we’ll break down some of the key differences.

One of the main reasons to switch out your current water heater for a demand-type system is to save money on the cost of heating your water. Among the benefits of these systems is that water is only heated when you turn on the faucet, rather than needing it to be heated and then stored in a tank.

Because of their efficiency, you’ll also be doing your part to save the environment when you install a tankless water heater. It’s easier than ever to go green, and your home’s appliances are a great place to start.

Get more years out of your system

No matter how much you’d like to save on heating, cooling, and plumbing, there’s no denying the fact that home appliances can be expensive. Another great thing about tankless water heaters is that they’ve been known to last for up to 20 years when well-taken care of.

Better water, better safety

When water is heated and left in a storage tank, there’s a chance it can collect rust and scale, which you don’t want coming out of your showerhead or kitchen faucet when you’re ready to cook. You can sidestep that issue with a tankless heater.

You also don’t have to worry as much about accidentally scalding yourself with burning hot water with a water heater that doesn’t use a tank. That’s because such water heaters have unique safety features that keep that from happening.
