What should I know about changes in refrigerants?
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), through the Clean Air Act, is regulating the production and use of refrigerants. These changes will eventually eliminate air conditioning and heat pump refrigerants containing chlorine, due to growing concern about ozone depletion.
In response, Lennox has developed cooling products that use the new, chlorine-free R410A refrigerant, instead of the standard R22 refrigerant (Freon) currently in use.
Because R410A contains no chlorine, it's ozone- and climate-responsible. Plus, R410 allows higher efficiencies than R22, so it not only makes sense environmentally — it also makes sense from an economic standpoint.
The introduction of air conditioners with the latest in refrigerant technology reflects Lennox' proactive approach to protecting the environment.
What is two-stage heating? How can I control energy costs?
Heating and cooling your home can represent as much as 44% of your utility bill. With high efficiency ratings and innovative, industry-leading technology, Lennox' home comfort systems can go a long way toward reducing these costs.
When selecting a new system, pay close attention to the SEER rating of the air conditioner and AFUE of the furnace. The higher the SEER or AFUE, the higher the savings.
Beyond efficiency ratings, other factors to consider are:
You can ensure your system operates at peak performance by scheduling annual maintenance checks. Call now and ask about our spring and fall check.
A zoning system can drastically lower your heating and cooling costs. With zoning, you no longer have to pay to heat or cool areas of your home that are rarely used.
According to the Department of Energy, a programmable thermostat can reduce your heating costs by up to 35% and cooling costs by up to 25%.
