Posted on in Blog

If you are considering a new HVAC installation in Nacogdoches, TX, McWilliams & Son Heating & Air Conditioning has staff willing and able to help you choose the right size and energy-efficient unit to maintain a comfortable environment in your home. They will take the size of your house, insulation and other factors into consideration. The technician will discuss various models that offer energy efficiency and educate you on the system's maintenance. There are three tips to help you lower your utility bills and have a comfortable home.

The first is to select a model for HVAC installation that has the Energy Star certification and the highest SEER rating you can afford. The seasonal energy efficiency rating begins at the lowest efficiency of one. There are units with dual power available today. That is, the unit uses both grid and solar power. These units have a SEER rating of 24 and the Energy Star certification. The certification qualifies the unit for tax incentives and rebates. These not only save you money, they will pay for the unit over time. 

The second way to maintain a comfortable environment after your HVAC installation is to have the air ducting system inspected and cleaned annually. This keeps dirt and dust from blowing into the house. Cleaning the ducts will also remove mold, fungus and other unhealthy contaminants from the home. With cleaner air, your home will be a comfortable environment all year long.

The third tip is maintenance following HVAC installation. This will provide the most comfortable environment for your Nacogdoches, TX, home. Every month, pour a cup of bleach into the drain tube. This keeps mold and algae from growing and clogging the tube. Clean or replace the filter to allow unrestricted air flow into the unit. Make sure all room vents are open and free of obstructions.
