Heating & Cooling
Living in the Pioneer Valley area of Western Massachusetts can be a challenge during the summer and winter months of the year. With large temperature swings typically occurring in a fairly short span of time, the winter months can be unbearably cold, while the summer heat can be uncomfortable. Heating and cooling systems are necessary tools for keeping our homes comfortable throughout the entire year.
With such a wealth of different HVAC products on the market, knowing where to start is easier said than done—the team at Energia is here to help.
Types of Heating and Cooling Systems
The HVAC industry has come a long way over the course of just the past decade alone. Today’s home heating and cooling systems are far more energy efficient than those of the past, saving you money while keeping your home comfortable throughout every season of the year. Common heating and cooling products include:
- Air Conditioners
- Air Handlers
- Gas Furnaces
- Oil Furnaces
- Heat Pumps
- Ductless Systems
- All-in-One Units
As one might expect, the “right” heating and cooling system will differ from home to home. Our experienced technicians can help to determine exactly which option is best for your home, whether it be a traditional gas or oil-burning furnace, a mini-split heat pump or any of the many other products available today.
Air Sealing + Insulation = True HVAC Performance
Many people believe that the key to improving home performance and boosting comfort levels is to purchase a state-of-the-art HVAC system, but in reality, this isn’t always the case. Even the best products on the market will have a hard time functioning properly if your home isn’t air sealed and insulated. Considering how prominent this issue is in the Pioneer Valley area, we recommend performing a home energy audit before moving forward with installing new heating and cooling systems.
By sealing cracks and gaps throughout the home and installing new, high-performance insulation, we can create the perfect environment for your new heating and cooling equipment to thrive. The end result? A safer, more comfortable home and reduced heating and cooling bills throughout the entire year.
