Why does Jacksonville’s unique weather make system replacement an even more desirable upgrade? What are some additional benefits of system upgrade?
The fluctuation in overall temperature here in Jacksonville can differ by as much as 50 degrees in a twenty-four hour period. One day it can be 90 degrees and the next day it can drop to forty degrees. Unless you are a techie, you would not likely ponder the effect that such statistics have on your cooling system. An older system has a far simpler array of “bells and whistles” than today’s standard equipment even. Most people don’t understand that the new air handlers and outdoor units communicate with each other like desktop computer systems now. This makes for a nice assortment of possibilities in terms of dealing with temperature fluctuations. The transitions are seamless and take the guesswork out of whether or not you are prepared to run the heat with no notice after needing the air conditioning the previous day.
The onboard tools and computer boards that the new systems utilize takes Jacksonville’s crazy weather out of mind and makes your home feel like a place of comfort, health and peace. Once you upgrade your system then it is always good to consider air purifiers and humidifiers. Protect your lungs and breathe easier while keeping your beautiful hardwood furniture and flooring protected against cracking, splitting, and crumbling.
The temperature drops can also encourage mildew and dampness in many different areas of your home. New heating and air conditioning system replacement with a variable speed high efficiency system greatly assists in balancing humidity levels even without humidifiers installed in the ductwork.
The new air handling units can efficiently move far more air at far faster rates than your old system could even dream of. The extra air has positive benefits on your electronics also. If your vents are above your gaming units and televisions then you can expect them to be cooled much better when the indoor fan is at full speed.
