Top 3 Recommended AC Upgrades to Save You Money

Product Information

AC upgradesYour HVAC system is a product of years of engineering and manufacturing that guaranteed optimal operation if properly maintained. But just like any other tool, its performance can be enhanced by a few simple upgrades to improve performance and save you money on your heating and cooling costs. Modern Air & Refrigeration strives to be your top source for all of your HVAC system needs including AC upgrades that can take your system’s performance to the next level.

Ductwork Upgrades

The simplest yet most cost-effective of options when it comes to AC upgrades takes the form of ductwork upgrades. Old, battered or broken ducts are the most common cause of AC energy waste. Regardless of how powerful or efficient your main unit is, it will always be hampered by faulty ductwork to distribute its air into your home. Even if your ducts are in good condition, well-insulated and completely sealed ducts can go far in saving you money on your heating and cooling costs. Sealed ductwork also cuts down on the need for duct cleanings saving you more money in the long run.

HVAC Zones

AC upgrades to your ductwork include a revolutionary method to control temperatures in different parts of your home. Zone dampers are additions to your ductwork that allow your HVAC equipment to communicate with your thermostat to control specific areas in your home. This gives users the ability to heat or cool different rooms depending only on use. The addition of a smart thermostat to this setup can take your AC operation to the next level. Imagine being able to set the temperature for different rooms depending on what time of the day they are occupied or not. Homeowners or business owners with multi-level building AC needs may find this a game changer with the ability to control temperatures for entire floors independently.

Whole-home Humidifier

We round out our list of AC upgrades with an underestimated HVAC component that has the potential to not only save you money but make your home a lot more comfortable to live in as well. If you have a central HVAC system then you have the option of adding a central humidifier. A home that’s either too dry or alternatively too humid can lead you to overtax your AC unit trying to overcompensate for your discomfort. A whole-home humidifier can lower or add moisture as needed to keep your home or building at a comfortable level thereby reducing your need to adjust the thermometer.
