5 Benefits of Having an Efficient HVAC System

Do you know what consumes the most energy in your home? It’s your HVAC system! In fact, one study done in North America found that households spend over $2,000 every year in energy bills mostly from heating and cooling their homes. How can you make sure your energy bills fall below that average? The answer is: With an efficient HVAC system from Servicexcel. If your current system is over 10 years old, or in constant need of repairs, it may be time for a new one, and you could experience great benefits for many years to come!

Cost Savings

Most importantly, an efficient HVAC system will save you money on your monthly energy bills. Efficiency of air conditioning systems is measured by SEER rating (seasonal energy efficiency ratio). The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient your system is.

Furnaces measure efficiency by AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) percentages. Older units typically operate around 65% AFUE, leaving 35% of energy wasted. Many of the high-efficiency systems we install operate at up to 97.3% AFUE, saving you tons of money and increasing your comfort.

Increased Comfort

Our high efficiency systems include variable speed compressors which means less cycling on and off to save you money, control humidity, and consistently keep your home comfortable. Variable speed compressors also provide you with increased air flow from every vent in your home. You’ll experience more even heating and cooling throughout every room of your house.

Quiet Noise Level

If you have an older system, you probably hear rattling and rumbling when it starts up and as it runs. New technology includes sound-absorbing equipment features to ensure you’re not disturbed by any distracting noises in the comfort of your home.

Positive Environmental Impact

Energy efficient systems use less electricity and burn less fuel than older systems. As a result, there is less reliance on carbon-intensive power plants, less carbon dioxide emissions, and more conservation of natural resources. Leaving a positive impact on the environment is icing on the cake!

Government Incentives

The CleanBC Better Homes and Home Renovation Rebate Program is offering a rebate of up to $3,000 for switching to a central system air source heat pump.

A properly installed heat pump is two to three times more efficient than other alternatives, and can provide you with both heating and cooling for today’s hot summers. A $500 electrical service upgrade rebate is available when converting your fossil fuel primary space or water heating system to an electrical primary space or water heating system.  For more information, see What is a heat pump and what are its benefits?

Brock Trimmer came and installed a brand new heat pump. He put carpeting down inside our home when installing the unit on the wall and vacuumed up after he was done. He did an outstanding job and told us all about our heat pump unit. He set up the remote for us on auto, and as seniors, this was very helpful for us. Friendly and efficient, we absolutely enjoyed the experience of the heat pump installation.

Hats off to Servicexcel: Paul did a fantastic job of executing the work we’d been quoted to repair our Heat Pump, and the repairs came in under budget. He was professional and courteous while explaining the work required and conducting the repairs at our home, and I will have no hesitation in using you folks again for future requirements. Thanks again for looking after our family’s needs – have a great weekend all!

We would like to acknowledge the young men whom we had the pleasure of meeting and the excellent job they did installing our new AC and gas furnace. They went above and beyond their jobs, working on an exceptionally hot day well into over eight hours, leaving only when the job was thoroughly and efficiently done. We are now relaxing in a comfortable home thanks to Eric, Aaron and Levi. We would certainly recommend your company and the fine employees to our friends.

The two technicians who installed our ductless heat pump system were Matt and Levi. The electrician was Raul. All three of these men demonstrated outstanding workmanship, knowledge and patience with a willingness to provide information on work to be carried out as well, as instruction in system operation. They are a credit to Servicexcel.

We used service excel because we had heard so much about them And Isabella was just so helpful and friendly. They came to install our heat pump when they said they would and that means a lot to me .Mason was very professional. As soon as he showed up he got right to work and got the job done even though it meant putting in a long day. Good work service excel!

Had a heat pump installed with 1 hiccup and the staff (installers, electrician, office staff) all handles the situation in a really professional manner... Will definitely use them again when I add additional units to the house. Thanks again!

Everything about dealing with ServicExcel was a great experience. The customer service reps on the phone (Cameo and Jennifer) were both wonderful and even organized all the rebate paperwork for me. Eric who gave me my quote explained the options and procedures fully and patiently answered all my questions. The installation team (Aaron, Raoul and Jude) were cheerful and efficient and cleaned up after themselves so well I couldn't tell they were even in my house... except for the fabulous cool air coming from my brand new heat pump! I would recommend these folks in a heartbeat to anyone who wants to switch from a gas furnace to a heat pump system.
