If you’re a savvy homeowner, you already know that having a clean, energy efficient heating system can save you money and improve your indoor air quality. There are many ways you can simply improve upon your existing system to maximize its output and save a few bucks. A company that does furnace installation in Santa Rosa, CA, can inspect your system and make recommendations. At One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® of the Bay Area, we have extensive experience in improving your heater’s performance.
Ways to Retrofit
The first step is for a technician to do a technical and safety inspection of your existing system. From there, they can suggest repairs to get your system running more efficiently. If you are in the market to retrofit your system, there are a few things the technician may recommend:
- Installing a new duct system to reduce leaks
- Utilizing a programmable thermostat, which allows you to set temperatures based on time of day
- Adding zone control for hot-water systems
- Replacing a pilot light on a gas furnace
However, if you know you may need to replace your furnace soon, it may make more economic sense to simply get a new furnace installation. Sometimes the cost of upgrades on an old system can be more than replacing the entire thing.
While you know how old your system is, you may not know what kind of condition it is in until a professional inspects it. Our technician’s at One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® of the Bay Area can thoroughly look over your unit and ducts and help you decide what makes the most sense for you and your budget.
