HVAC checklist and key features | Edwards Heating & Air

When you purchase a heating system or air conditioner from Edwards Heating & Air, it comes with features that increase efficiency and savings. Here are the top 10 features you can depend on with our HVAC systems:

  1. Refrigerant Type

Since federal law has phased out the use of Freon since 2015, the most affordable and current option is R-410A. We have only the best heating and cooling systems using R-410A.

  1. Indoor Unit Location

Heating and cooling systems installed at floor level are less likely to have leaks, cause water damage and are easily accessible for HVAC maintenance.

  1. Programmable Thermostat

We have high quality programmable thermostats offering settings for when you are out, asleep or on vacation. Ask our NATE-certified experts which thermostat works best with your current or new HVAC system.

  1. Ductwork Type

Ductwork should be properly balanced and sized to be the most efficient in a home.   The most efficient ductwork is externally insulated.

  1. Outdoor Unit Location

We install the outdoor unit where it is less noticeable so there is less operating noise and risk of damage or theft. Our NATE-certified technicians are skilled at finding the best placement for the outdoor unit.

  1. System Efficiency

The air conditioner will have a minimum rating of 13 SEER and heat pumps will have a minimum rating of 7.7 HSPF. The higher the SEER and HSPF rating is, the more efficient the HVAC system.

  1. Air Filter

The location of the air filter should be easily accessible for a technician during HVAC maintenance, and for the homeowner to change periodically. Air filters should be cleaned or replaced every three to six months to keep a unit operating efficiently.

  1. Return-Air

Return-air ducting is responsible for pulling air from rooms, keeping it circulating and fresh.

  1. Variable Speed Compressor

The power to gradually start up quietly and maintain operations at lower speeds decreases annual energy consumption. A variable speed compressor is more reliable with fewer breakdowns during operation.

  1. Outside Condenser Coil

Condenser coils, made of aluminum or copper, are more durable against corrosive environments. During HVAC maintenance, our technicians check the condenser coil for damage, which might lead to breakdowns.
