Save big with new American Standard qualifying HVAC equipment and Bill's Heating & Air Conditioning with their Consistent Comfort Sales Event.

American Standard Consistent Comfort Sales Event

What does consistent comfort mean to you and your family? Is it life at 60°? Well, that might be a bit cold for us humans, but penguins sure like it…

American Standard not only offers top-notch HVAC products and stands behind them but they consistently provide customers with amazing rebates and incentives to upgrade. This summer American Standard is offering instant rebates up to $1000 on qualifying heating and cooling equipment. When it’s time to upgrade that old HVAC equipment the initial cost can be daunting. The great news is a new system will run with better efficiency, saving you on your monthly energy bills, often significantly. Replacing an AC unit but not the furnace or vica versa is not often the optimal thing to do for the overall HVAC system. A new AC unit will run with maximum efficiency working to cool your home, but the older furnace will still cause strain on the entire system when colder seasons set in, potentially reducing the life expectancy of all parts. Even though the sticker shock is rough, replacing inside and outside units at the same time is the best bet. American Standard wants to make that possibility within reach.

This summer, through August 31, 2017, customers can earn up to $1000 in instant rebates when they purchase select American Standard equipment.… Read More

Who Knew? Some Fun AC Facts to Ponder

Air conditioning facts might not be something the average person thinks about often, but there are some very interesting things to learn about AC and it’s history. All of us know that during the hottest summer months, we can’t go without air conditioning. We also know that we’ve come a long way from its original design. Most America homes, businesses and venues are outfitted with AC units. With advances in energy efficiency throughout the years, air conditioners use about 6% of all the electricity produced in the US. Surprisingly though, air conditioning was not originally invented to keep people cool. Read on to learn about this and another little known AC fact.

AC Fact #1: Keeping People Cool was never a Priority

Surprise! Mr. Willis Carrier invented the modern air conditioner in 1902. He was commissioned by a publishing company in New York. The interesting thing is that cooling down the hard working publishing employees was not the intent. Reducing the humidity and heat in the building was needed to reduce problems with the inks as well as the paper. Being unable to control the varying humidity was causing unique issues with ink drying and bleeding and the paper expanding and contracting. Cooling the workers was just an added bonus.

AC Fact #2: Summer Movies Blockbusters were created

In the early 1900’s movie theaters were some of the first businesses to invest in new AC technology.… Read More

Your Air Conditioner and the R-22 Dilemma

If your AC unit has had issues, not working properly or it needs freon each year, it could be a costly endeavor this year. R-22 or chlorodifluoromethane (no wonder they call is R-22), better known as Freon, is a refrigerant gas that has been used in AC units for many years. Fifty years ago R-22 was king of the coolant industry. It was affordable, long-lasting and performed remarkably well. As with many early industrial ventures, it was later discovered to be harmful to the environment. R-22 was determined to be both Ozone Depletion and have a potential effect on Global Warming. For the average consumer with an older model AC unit, this can mean a big expense when it comes to repairs.

Why is R-22 so expensive?

Due to requirements set forth by the Montreal Protocol, R-22 has been phased out of new HVAC equipment in the United States. Of course, there are still older AC units across the nation using R-22. The EPA and the government are mandated to remove R-22 from production by 2020. Recycled or recovered R-22 can still be used in older units until supplies are diminished. In an effort to discourage consumers from using it the government has dramatically increased the cost. A new tank of freon which cost $350 last year is $800 this year.… Read More

HVAC Service

Have you ever had a service call to your home that left you feeling taken advantage of? Maybe you were unfamiliar with the company. Maybe you felt you weren’t offered honest information. Or maybe you had an inkling they were trying to take you for a ride, making you pay for repairs not really necessary. This is a frustrating and unfortunate situation. On many occasions, customers don’t know enough about their home systems to spot a puffed up estimate or a dishonest technician. Sadly there are companies and people out there that will take advantage of that. That is reason number one to find a company you can trust. A company that has been around for years is a good indication they are honest and value customer service.
