Heating and Air Conditioning Systems: What Do Homeowners Really Want?

  When it comes to heating and air conditioning Systems: What Do Homeowners Really Want?  For homeowners investing in a new HVAC system, energy efficiency and comfort are important considerations but, what homeowners want most of all from their HVAC systems is a long lifespan and years of hassle-free performance, according to a recent survey conducted by Emerson Climate Technologies. The company’s 2015 Residential Air Conditioning Consumer Research Summary Report sheds light on consumers’ priorities when it comes to selecting air conditioning and heating systems. HVAC system reliability is the top attribute, and that’s understandable–homeowners want the peace of mind that comes from knowing they’ve purchased a good system and that it’s been installed professionally.

Here are the remaining attributes of HVAC systems that the survey respondents desired,...

Sweltering Under a Summer “Heat Dome”

Sweltering Under a Summer “Heat Dome” This spring, we were very busy visiting our Daffan Mechanical customers, checking and providing maintenance to their air conditioning systems. For customers with HVAC systems that were reaching the end of their lifespan, we advised them of their repair-or-replace options, or made arrangements to install new systems. We’re glad we took care of business early in the season, because we were anticipating a hot summer. Sure enough, by mid to late July, a phenomenon known as a “heat dome” settled across much of the continental U.S., including the Granbury-and Weatherford area communities that...
