If you want to reduce your wintertime heating bills, installing an efficient heater is a smart solution. But which system is right for your Gilmer, Texas, home? From heat pumps to gas furnaces, familiarize yourself with three types of energy-efficient heating systems.

Electric Heat Pumps

The Infinity 20 Heat Pump With Greenspeed Intelligence is one of the most efficient models on the market. It features a heating seasonal performance factor (HSPF) rating of 13. You can also invest in a unit that has up to a 20.5 seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER).

This model also features Carrier’s eco-conscious Greenspeed technology. Its variable-speed compressor ensures that the system optimizes energy consumption while keeping your family comfortable during every season.

Geothermal Heat Pumps

Electric heat pumps can offer impressive efficiency, but when you want to take your energy savings to a new level, consider geothermal.

The Performance Geothermal Heat Pump GP offers the same year-round comfort like an electric heat pump. But instead of using electricity, it relies on a home’s geothermal system. Since geothermal systems source their energy from the earth in your backyard and don’t generate greenhouse gases, they’re some of the most sustainable systems you’ll find anywhere.

Gas Furnaces

If your home relies on gas heat, you’ll get incredible efficiency from the Performance Boost 90 Gas Furnace, which generates up to 96.5 percent annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE). This Carrier model is the ideal pair with your heat pump or air conditioner, as it can also boost dehumidification in the summer.

No matter if you’re in the market for a heat pump or a gas furnace, you’ve come to the right place for a new heating system. Call the heating experts at JD’s A/C today by calling (903) 759-7483.

Whether you’re enjoying the last of the warm weather or you can’t wait for cooler temperatures in Gladewater, Texas, you know the heating season is around the corner. From scheduling an HVAC tuneup to sealing your home against drafts, take advantage of four energy-efficient ways to get your home ready for fall.

Schedule HVAC System Maintenance

Before turning on your heating system for the season, make a point of scheduling HVAC system maintenance. You definitely need an HVAC tuneup if your system hasn’t had professional maintenance in more than a year. At JD’s A/C, we’ll calibrate your heating system, check the wiring and make sure it’s ready for cool weather.

Get Your Thermostat Ready

To keep your energy consumption as low as possible in the fall, make the most of your programmable thermostat. When the family is home, set the cooling temperature to 78 degrees or the heating temperature to 68 degrees. Dial back the temperature by 10 degrees when everyone is at school or work to save even more energy and money on your utility bill.

Seal Your Home Against Drafts

Cool drafts can force your HVAC system to work harder than it needs, resulting in poor efficiency. Before the cool weather settles, take a few minutes to check for cracks and leaks around windows, doors and your home’s thermal envelope. Weatherproofing your home and sealing air leaks doesn’t take long, but it can boost energy efficiency throughout the autumn.

Consider a Heating Upgrade

If your heating system is nearing the end of its life, don’t wait for a major breakdown before replacing your system. Consider a heat pump or furnace upgrade now to make sure you’re optimizing your home’s energy efficiency through the heating season.

Get a head start on your to-do list for fall by scheduling HVAC system maintenance today. Call the HVAC pros at JD’s A/C by calling (903) 759-7483.
