Suntech Mechanical is ready to tackle the installations of heating and cooling units for you. We specialize in conversions to refrigerated air, new duct work, new air flow desings, and complete overhauls of your heating and cooling system. Whether you need a better system to keep your home or business comfortable or want a more energy-efficient system, we are ready to work with you.
Today's top of the line air conditioners use 30-50% less energy than those made in the 1990′s, so you might want to consider upgrading to a more efficient system that will save you money down the road. You can even save up to 40% on operating costs if you replace a model that is only 10 years old. These days, consumers are looking for ways to save money and ways to be "green". Recent models are more energy efficient, and also may enable you to receive a tax credit for upgrading! Contact Suntech Mechanical, Inc. today to discuss your options.
Refrigerated air works much like a refrigerator, as it uses the evaporation of a refrigerant liquid to provide cooling within a closed system. A refrigerated air conditioning unit recycles the air in your home, but an evaporative cooling system draws the air from outside. Refrigerated air conditioning removes humidity from the air making a much more comfortable environment.
An evaporative cooler cools air through the evaporation of water. Because the temperature of dry air can be dropped significantly through the phase transition of liquid water to water vapor, evaporative coolers require much less energy than refrigerated air units. They also have the added benefit of conditioning the air with more moisture for the comfort of occupants in extremely dry climates. Unfortunately, evaporative coolers require a water source, therefore they continually consume water to operate.
Today's gas furnaces are anywhere from 80-95% efficient, whereas older furnaces may be as low as 60% efficient. Take this into consideration when looking at your utility bills when it's cold and your house is not heating properly. Upgrading your heating system may cost a little more upfront, but down the road your savings on energy costs will make up the difference.
