We all know the benefits of installing a heating as well as an air conditioning system in our homes. But what we have to know better is how to install a heating and air conditioning system so that we experience most of the benefits that these systems offer. Heating and air conditioning systems have several options for you to consider. To make the best choice, you should contact your HVAC contractor on which kind of heating and air conditioning system to install considering the type of house that you have.
Efficiency is a huge reason why it might be time for you to replace your heating system. Older units only take advantage of about 80% of the heat your furnace produces, which means 20% is going out your flue. Newer systems will direct as much as 95% of the heat it produces to your house. What this means is your equipment is not working as long or as hard to heat your house. Most units will come equipped with a variable speed blower, this will result in
not only a quieter unit than conventional units, they are also more efficient. Variable speed air handlers operate continuously at a wide range of speeds, whereas conventional single speed air handlers operate at only one speed and cycle on and off throughout the day. Variable speed air handlers provide more uniform heating and cooling because they constantly circulate the air in your home. This constant circulation also greatly reduces humidity levels during air conditioning season. Because the blower motor operates at lower speeds, it’s quieter and consumes less energy.
Again the huge reason is efficiency and less power needed, which means more savings for you. Air conditioners are rated in seer (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). The higher the number, the more efficient the machine is. The SEER rating is often found on a yellow sticker attached to newly installed condensers. The lowest seer rating that can be installed is a 13 seer, which for someone who has an older air conditioning unit, this is still a big difference.
When air conditioners go up in seer rating, there condenser(which is the outside coil) will dramatically increase in size. This will help the compressor run at lower head pressures during very hot days. Why is this important? Well if your unit does not have to work that hard during hot days, to cool your house, that results in saving on energy and money.
We are all after a comfortable living and these heating and air conditioning systems just help us make comfort possible at all seasons. So, make the best choice for your homes.

Gary R Jeff designed a great Mitsubishi Mini Split for my new Music Room. Julio and Marlon did a great job on the initial pre-plumb, and Julio and Jake returned to finish the install. I did have one minor glitch, and Jeff sent Barry out to take care of that. Great equipme...
Lisa G Have had nothing but positive experience working with R&S. Brittany is the front end of the company and does a great job representing company. friendly, pleasant and helpful. Provides accurate information and follows up as she says.
Sean H. I had R and S come out to my house for the second time in the last couple of years to fix an issue with our heating system, and they were able to show up quickly and promptly and fix the issue the same day. The folks I have dealt with at R and S have all been very friendly and helpful in explaining the two issues with our heater thus far. We've had very good experiences and would definitely recommend to other homeowners.
Mancy M. I would recommend R & S Mechanical at any time for those who are looking for professionalism and ability to make a major job look like it's a minor one. I contacted R & S as one of 5 suppliers and service companies to install a new unit in my house. Even though price was a factor, but I was also looking to work with an organization that would be honest and caring. I did find such values with R & S. They were the only one out of the five who actually called to follow up on their offer and ensure that everything was well explained and clear. Absolutely great guys and they made sure to keep the place clean after they left. I definitely made the right choice.
Jennifer R. I have dealt with R&S since I moved to Raleigh four years ago and they have taken consistently good care of my HVAC units. They are prompt, professional, courteous and definitely pick up after themselves. They even call me to schedule regular maintenance that comes with my service contract instead of me having to remember. I can get an appointment very quickly if something breaks on me and they always arrive early. I'm overall very satisfied.
Gail S. I have always been pleased with their service. They are quick to respond, even on weekends. I would definitely recommend them.
Carol C. Our overall experience with R&S has been exceptional. We have been homeowners for over 30 years and have never had better service, concern and respect as we have received from R&S. Highly recommend.
Barb and Jerry Our AC system failed on a Friday afternoon at our Daughter's condo. Shortly after our call, Randy and Mike came to our condo, diagnosed the unit and loaned us portable cooling units over the weekend. They installed a new system and got us up and running the following Tuesday. Their prices and service were great! Very responsive, very straight forward, no hard sell unlike the big companies. Highly recommended - excellent service!
