If you are a homeowner, the list of things on your plate to take care of around the home is seemingly endless. There are the regular things on your honey-do list like yard work, routine maintenance, and daily chores. Then there are big projects and purchases that are always in the back of your mind. As the intense summer heat approaches, you might be thinking about conducting maintenance, repairing, or possibly replacing your home's HVAC system. Your home's HVAC system is much more than just your air conditioner and heating unit. Our society spends most of their time indoors, which means that maintaining air quality within our homes is becoming increasingly more important. Your HVAC system helps to do that with filters and integrated cleaning systems. However, older systems don't do much to improve your home's indoor air quality, which leaves you with pollutants, odors, and toxins that infiltrate your home without even knowing it. If you experience the following issues on a regular basis, you may want to consider upgrading your HVAC system:
- Recurrent respiratory issues
- Difficulty heating or cooling your home efficiently
- Increased energy bills
A high-quality HVAC system can change your home. In-home air quality systems clean your home's air by removing toxins, odors, and pollutants. And with the ever-changing field of technology, it's even easier to manage! HVAC systems can even be regulated with the touch of a button by integrating with your home's smart devices, like Amazon Alexa or the Apple HomeKit.
Should I Replace My HVAC System or Just Repair It?
Your HVAC system should have a regular yearly maintenance which includes checking the system and cleaning your home's ventilation system. HVAC systems are often replaced after about 10 to 12 years, sometimes longer with regular use and appropriate yearly maintenance. If you are coming up to that mark with your home's current system or if it hasn't been maintained properly, it may be time to replace it. Your HVAC system controls the air quality in your home as well as the heating and cooling. If your family continues to have seasonal allergies or upper respiratory issues even while in your home, you may want to consider replacing your HVAC system with one that helps to purify your home's air, eliminate toxins, and remove pollutants. A high energy bill may also mean that your system needs to be replaced. Over time your system stops working as efficiently. When your system needs to work harder to cool down or heat up your home, it uses more energy thereby increasing your home's energy bill. Although an expensive cost up front, a new HVAC system in your home will save you money, and peace of mind, in the long run.
Whole Home Comfort and Convenience
There are several reasons one might make the choice to get a new HVAC system, but the decision should not be made lightly. Your new system should last at least a decade, so you want to make the right choice for you and your family. Lennox is a leading innovator in home indoor air quality and comfort systems. They offer a range of products for heating, cooling, and air purification. Lennox wants your family to be comfortable and happy in your home, and having a space filled with clean air can make all the difference. The Ultimate Comfort System™ combines several of Lennox' innovative products to make your home as efficient, clean, and convenient as possible.
Heating and Cooling
Lennox' Precise Comfort™ Technology offers a heating and cooling system that works more efficiently to warm up or cool down your home. It uses variable speed operation (versus single speed flow on traditional systems) to create the perfect temperature for your home using less energy. Learn more here.
Clean air is more than just a good filter. Lennox' PureAir™ purification system works through your entire home to ensure that the air within your walls is free from pollutants and toxins. It makes it easier to breathe, cleaner for your body, and all around better for the entire family. The PureAir™ purification system works differently than other air purification systems in that:
- It cleans the air throughout the entire home versus traditional single area air cleaners. This ensures that you have clean air no matter which room you are in.
- It filters out 99.9% of airborne particles (including pet dander, dust, and pollen), 90% of germs and bacteria (even the common cold viruses and the flu), and 50% of chemical vapors.
- It reduces the ozone output in your home through its carbon filtration system.
As today's technology continues to increase, it becomes more and more apparent that we are able to control our home in ways that would make the Jetsons jealous. Lennox' iComfort® S30 ultra smart thermostat integrates with your home's smart device so you are able to control your home's heating and cooling systems with your voice. With the iComfort® S30, you can regulate your home's temperature efficiently. It uses your phone's GPS to recognize when you are leaving, automatically changing your system's heating or cooling temperatures to an energy-saving mode while you're gone. Your system then kicks back on to its regular schedule by the time you walk in the door. You can also use your iComfort® app to change your home's temperature before you even get there, so you are walking in to total comfort the minute your key hits the lock. You can even keep tabs on your home's air quality. The iComfort® S30 ultra smart thermostat uses your local zip code to monitor pollen counts and air quality, and automatically runs your system’s blower during bad air days. With its Feels Like™ feature, the iComfort® S30 also helps to control humidity in your home and help keep it at a comfortable level. You can see these changes in use (including energy used in your heating, cooling, and air purification systems) through the performance reports found on your online account or through the monthly reports sent to your email.

Your HVAC system is an important part of your home. Next to the physical structure of your home, it is the one system that you use most often. A high-quality HVAC system not only keeps your home comfortable, but it also keeps the air within your home clean. Lennox' Ultimate Comfort System™ offers energy efficient heating and cooling, air purification, and sophisticated iComfort® S30 (integrated with your smart device), and makes you feel more at home than ever the moment you step through your door. The American Lung Association estimates that today's society stays indoors 90% of the time and the US Environmental Protection Agency finds that pollutants can be 100 times higher indoors versus outdoors. All of this information points to having an efficient HVAC to maintain home health, and options like the one from Lennox are key.
