Blog presents key information about furnaces, air conditioning, and energy savings, reports Hamilton Furnace & AC
Hamilton, ON -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/08/2014 -- Hamilton Furnace & AC has announced the arrival of its informative blog, which lets readers know about important facts related to HVAC systems, saving energy, and related matters. The blog is currently small, but new posts are being added. By starting to read now, visitors will be able to keep up with the information as it comes in.
"Many people don't look into furnace-related matters until something goes wrong with the one in their house," explained Simon Alexander of Hamilton Furnace & AC. "Then when their system isn't working right, they have a lot of catching up to do. They have to decide whether to go for repairs or replacement, consider prices, think about the size of their equipment, and other such things. This is also true for people who are looking into air conditioning systems. It can all seem overwhelming, and it's a good idea to do some advance reading before buying a new unit. That's where our blog comes in. It lays out all of the most important factors surrounding these systems."
One interesting thing that's noted on the blog is that a bigger air conditioner or furnace isn't always the best choice. It turns out that a unit that is too big will cycle on and off too often, which leads to wear on the starting mechanisms and higher utility bills. According to Alexander, the best system, on the other hand, is sized so that it will be powerful enough to hit the target temperature, but will also cycle at a more reasonable rate. With air conditioners, Alexander states slower cycling will also give the unit sufficient running time to provide humidity control as well as cooling.
"The first thing many people ask when they begin to think about replacing a furnace is the price," Alexander added, "so we've put up an article that details common price ranges. There can be striking differences based on the unit's size and what fuel it uses."
Natural gas and propane furnaces use the same basic technology, so the cost of these machines is similar. Electric furnaces, on the other hand, are much cheaper. Alexander states, "The catch with electric ones is that the operating cost will be much higher than it is with either natural gas or propane, so they're really only good for small areas. With any type of furnace or air conditioning unit, the size and power it produces has much to do with its cost."
These are just a few of the things that are covered on Hamilton Furnace & AC's new blog.
