Host, Sarah Rutan: Before purchasing a new heating and cooling system, make sure you’re getting the latest and greatest industry technology. Today we’re in Concord with Diamond Certified Expert Contributor Bryan Arlaud of Certified Heating and Air Conditioning to learn more.
Diamond Certified Expert Contributor, Bryan Arlaud: One of the big things that is changing in the industry today is that many people are used to a gas-fired furnace that uses not only electricity, but also fuel to heat the home. You get those in two different versions. You can get it at 80% efficient or 90 and above percent efficient.
The big change is coming in where we are starting to heat and cool homes with electricity, so we're not using fuel anymore to heat the house. We’re generating it from the solar system that back-feeds into the system. Then we can heat and cool the house so that you can stay comfortable.
Whenever you have someone come out to talk to you about new equipment, make sure to get all the options so that you’re not just getting older technology. Make sure you're getting something that's going to save you energy and headaches down the road with paying for higher utility bills.
