Choose the Right HVAC Equipment for Your Home

Up close of white air conditioner unit.

Enhancing comfort in your Texas home starts with choosing the best heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system and the most experienced installers. 

Selecting the appropriate type and size of HVAC equipment will further your heating and cooling goals, whether that is better energy efficiency, improved indoor air quality (IAQ), or a smaller carbon footprint. 

There is a heating and cooling system for every home and budget. You merely need to find the best fit for your home.

Your Local Pflugerville HVAC Professionals

AiRCO Mechanical can help you narrow the mind-boggling selection of HVAC units available today. We bring extensive experience and training to every project consultation, service call, and installation. Our professionals stay on top of changes in HVAC technology and techniques and handle all makes and models of heating and cooling equipment.

Even the best HVAC system will underperform if installed and sized incorrectly. It will struggle to adequately heat and cool your home if it is too small. An oversized unit can lead to short cycling, hot and cold spots throughout your home, and unnecessary wear and tear that shortens the system’s service life. 

That is why it is essential to choose a professional for the job. Our AiRCO Mechanical experts will ensure your new equipment operates at peak efficiency and complies with local building codes. 

We proudly carry Lennox products because we believe in offering our customers the best quality HVAC equipment and an extensive selection.  

Choose the Right Type of HVAC

Every home is unique, so considering its size, the climate, and your budget can help you identify your best options. A large, sprawling home needs a comparable system or possibly two units.

On the other hand, a standard air conditioner and furnace may adequately condition the air in a tiny ranch house or bungalow. 

Chilly winter nights and mild days that give way to sizzling summers call for equipment that can handle both extremes. 

Heat Pumps vs. Furnaces in Texas

If your priority is low environmental impact and lower energy bills, an air-source heat pump may be your solution. It is more energy efficient than a gas or oil furnace and can heat and cool your home, working year-round for your comfort. 

If you want a heat pump, but your breaker panel does not have enough power, we can upgrade it. Our qualified staff at AiRCO Mechanical includes licensed electricians. 

If you like your gas furnace but want to lower your energy bills, you cannot go wrong upgrading to a high-efficiency model. Their efficiency ratings fall short of those for heat pumps, but they handle freezing temperatures more efficiently. 

Go Ductless 

If you have a forced-air system with ductwork but want to heat and cool a new addition or an accessory building, a ductless mini-split is the way to go. A ductless system involves an outdoor heat pump that connects to one or more small, sleek indoor units that contain the evaporator coil and fan. Wiring and a refrigerant line connect the indoor air handling unit to the outdoor heat pump.  

The indoor units hang on the wall, hide behind the ceiling, or sit on the floor inside a console. Each indoor unit has a thermostat and works independently, enabling users to set different temperatures from unit to unit. 

Ductless systems are highly efficient and solve the challenge of heating and cooling your home without pumping air into unoccupied spaces. A ductless system enables you to save energy by shutting off or dialing back the thermostat in rarely used rooms. 

Comparing HVAC Prices

The cost of new HVAC equipment plays a major role in your options but should not be the sole reason for your selection.

Compare prices. Compare features and determine which you need or want. And be sure to ask about our convenient financing options.

While weighing system differences, consider how well your home is insulated and sealed. Track your energy expenses. If your energy bills have increased substantially, paying more upfront for a high-efficiency system makes sense. You will save money in the long run. 

HVAC Tax Credits

Through 2032, you can get a federal tax credit for qualified high-efficiency furnaces, air conditioners, heat pumps, and other home improvements. 

According to ENERGY STAR®, the 30 percent income tax credits allow up to $3,200 annually to lower energy-efficient home upgrades.

Check out the ENERGY STAR website for more information about brands and models that qualify for the tax break.
