Investing in New Split System
Investing in a New HVAC System
Replacing dated HVAC equipment can provide considerable benefits. Here's how investing in a new home comfort system pays you back.
Greater Efficiency Equals Greater Savings
Newer HVAC systems can be up to 50% more efficient than units that are 12 or more years old. In fact, advancements in central heating and cooling technology are improving energy efficiency as much as 7% per year. So, replacing a heat pump, air conditioner or furnace that is more than a decade old may be a smart move. Our highest efficiency YORK® systems can cut your heating and cooling bills in half, depending on the efficiency of your old system. With new equipment, the utility savings start paying you back immediately. Plus, you may avoid costly repair bills in the years ahead.
Make Comfort a Consideration
An uncomfortable home can be a sign of improper equipment operation, duct problems or inadequate insulation. Dust, pollen and mold spores can invade your house from leaky ducts that pull dirty air from attics, crawl spaces and basements. Sealing your ducts may be a solution, as well as adding air-cleaning equipment. Either way, a properly installed system, ductwork, coils and filters can save money - and improve your health.
Flexibility to Fit Your Life
The definition of home comfort has changed - today's residential heating and air conditioning systems are smarter, more connected, more efficient and more reliable than ever before. With a new YORK® system, home comfort is built for the way you live. Our thermostats can be programmed to fit your family's schedule and communicate with equipment to ensure proper function. Air cleaners and ventilators can introduce fresh outside air without wasting energy while central humidifying or dehumidifying equipment can also help improve indoor air quality. And system-matched components allow your complete YORK® system to run more efficiently, with greater comfort consistency than ever before. In short, it's a great time to invest in a new home heating or air conditioning system.

A Quick Guide for Homeowners
There's a lot to think about when buying a central air conditioning, heat pump or gas furnace system. That's because next to your home itself, a home comfort system is one of your largest investments. Here are answers to ten common questions to help you make you an intelligent HVAC choice.
Should I repair or replace my existing system?
As a rule of thumb, replace your existing home comfort system when repairs cost 30% of a new purchase - or when utility bills have increased 50% as a result of older, less efficient systems using more, higher priced electricity.
How much can I save with new equipment?
Air conditioning and heating equipment consume about 44% of a home's energy bill. Today's ENERGY STAR® qualified systems are as much as 60% more efficient than ten-year old equipment.
Is installing a central HVAC system really necessary?
In new homes or remodels, a central home comfort system is the best solution for overall comfort and superior indoor air quality and humidity control.
What is the best thermostat to use with my system?
Look for a programmable thermostat for accurate, reliable, energy-saving performance. Our Affinity™ Hx3™ 4.3-inch Touch-screen Thermostat offers voice control using Amazon Alexa and is compatible with Apple Watch®. And thanks to over-the-air updates and compatibility with most conventionally wired home comfort systems, you can be assured of efficient, reliable operation. With real-time alerts, home and away modes, schedule creation and quick heat/cool settings, the Hx3™ is a great way to save even more.
How can I be sure I'm selecting the right contractor?
Seek out a contractor who is associated with a recognized brand. If they are backed by the product and training resources of a major manufacturer, you will feel confident that you're getting the home comfort system that best meets your needs.
How do I select the right heating/cooling system?
Get solid advice from an expert. The right contractor can perform a load calculation or an energy analysis to determine your operating costs. After getting to know your needs, they can customize a system just for you.
If I have an existing system, can any of the components be reused?
Every system is different. After a thorough inspection of your electrical system, ductwork and other system components that go into a system, your contractor will explain what you need to replace, and what you can keep.
What is involved in installing a brand new system?
Air conditioners and gas furnaces require different components. But the common denominator is ductwork. Whether made from metal or fiberglass, ductwork must be properly sized and zoned for optimal system performance.
What does the air handler do for my system?
An air handler circulates conditioned air throughout your home. You can combine it with accessories to filter, humidify or dehumidify the air stream as needed.
What can I do to improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)?
Indoor air can be from five to 100 times more polluted than outside air. Adding humidifiers, dehumidifiers, ventilation systems, UV lights and air filter technologies can dramatically improve your indoor air quality.
