Replacing Existing Equipment

Thinking About Purchasing a Replacement?

As energy costs rise, investing in efficient equipment becomes more and more vital. And thanks to today’s new, more efficient equipment, utility savings start paying you back immediately. What’s more, new equipment can be up to 50 percent more efficient than older central comfort systems.

Stick to this ratio if you’re unsure whether or not it’s time to replace your furnace or air conditioner: It’s advisable to purchase a replacement if the cost of repairs approaches 30 percent of the value of your heating or cooling system. Adirondack Mechanical’s team of factory-trained professionals can provide you with information on new, more efficient systems that can help you avoid costly repair bills in the years ahead. You’ll enjoy exceptional home comfort and cost savings, and potentially receive rebates from your power and gas provider, as well as possible tax credits for energy saving equipment. And that’s a no-brainer.

Benefits That Pay You Back

Increased efficiency adds up to big savings over time. And thanks to advancements in technology, energy efficiency is improving by as much as 7 percent per year. Champion® high-efficiency air conditioning or furnace systems from Adirondack Mechanical can reduce heating and cooling bills by as much as 50 percent depending on the efficiency of your current system.

Comfort is Key

Air quality can have a major effect on your in-home comfort. That’s why properly installed systems, ductwork, coils and filters do more than just save money—they positively impact your health. Factors like improper equipment operation, duct problems or inadequate insulation can all lead to discomfort in your home. Additionally, leaky ducts can pull dirty air from attics, crawl spaces and basements, allowing mold spores to enter into your home.

Luckily, you have options to help ensure a healthier home environment. Sealing your ducts and adding indoor air quality equipment can be a solution. And you can feel confident in Adirondack Mechanical to install your system right the first time. Call our office at (518) 883-3077 for your no obligation free estimate today.
