Why is regular maintenance important?

Just like you need to take your car in to the shop for normal tune-ups, such as oil changes or looking at possible issues, your home comfort system should get the same kind of attention. Regular maintenance by a trained technician provides a variety of benefits to your HVAC equipment, which can help your systems operate efficiently and prevent costly breakdowns.

What is two-stage heating?

Two-stage heating enables the furnace to heat at two levels of output: high for cold winter days and low for mild ones. Around 80 percent of the time, your home’s heating requirements can be met when the furnace is set on the low setting, permitting your two-stage unit to run for longer periods of time. Two-stage units also provide more even heat distribution, fewer temperature swings, quiet operation, improved air filtration and energy efficiency.

How much does a heating and cooling system cost?

How will my new furnace work different from my old one?

Depending on how old your previous furnace was, you could experience a host of differences. Furnaces today are developed to offer more even and efficient heating than ever before. Modern furnaces also better regulate temperature and air flow, moving more air over the heat exchanger than older furnaces.

Additionally, new furnaces are crafted to work with other high-efficiency HVAC products, such as air conditioners. The air conditioner blowers provide your heating system an extra boost so it can deliver cool air around your home efficiently. Special features like variable speed motors will also help decrease noise associated with operating your equipment and easily meet your family’s airflow needs.

How can I reduce my energy cost?

Gary & Sons carries a number of HVAC products with high efficiency ratings, which can help cut back the amount of energy they require to operate. Aside from picking products that have received Energy Star® certification or achieved high SEER ratings for air conditioners or AFUE ratings for furnaces, you can consider the following:

Why should I buy Lennox or Mitsubishi?

There are many reasons to go with Lennox or Mitsubishi, but the top three are:


What can I do to improve my home’s indoor air quality?

Improving your home’s indoor air quality starts with four basic strategies:


How does air conditioner work?

Many homeowners believe that air conditioners make the air in your home cooler, but it actually removes the heat from your house, directing the hot air outside. That hot air flows across a cold indoor coil where refrigerant in the lines sends the heat to the coil in your outdoor unit, releasing it outside. This procedure continues until the indoor temperature reaches the temp that was set on your thermostat.

How can I confirm the model and serial number for my cooling unit?

These numbers can be found on a nameplate or sticker that is near your system’s service panel. The sticker will be white with black letters and have both of these numbers located around the top of the sticker. M/N signifies model number while S/N is your serial number.

What size equipment do I need for my home?

There are a couple ways to determine what size system is right for your home, but the most reliable way to choose a system is by having your Gary and Sons’ technician come out and perform a free load calculation. This calculation considers your home’s: square footage, insulation value, amount of insulation, and a variety of other factors.

Can frost, ice, dirt or other debris keep the outside unit of my heating and cooling system from operating effectively?

The short answer is “Yes,” because dirt and other debris can inhibit your system’s ability to work efficiently. For heat pumps, it is common to have frost or ice on them during the winter, but they also are built with defrost controls to ensure they work efficiently in those kinds of weather.

What is two-stage cooling?

Two-stage cooling means that your cooling unit has two levels of operation. When summer is in its hottest weeks, the high setting is used, and when it’s cooler or more mild, the low setting gets the job done. Most of the time, the lower setting will take care of your cooling needs, but even when the high setting is in use, you may not realize it because it can produce such even temperatures for your comfort. This also means a quieter cooling system, greater efficiency and better humidity control.

Why is my system freezing up?

When your cooling unit freezes up, there are a number of reasons why it could be doing so. The most frequent reasons include: dirty filters, low refrigerant, a dirty evaporative coil and a faulty blower motor or relay. A dirty filter is something you can take care of as a homeowner, but the others need to be completed by a professional like those at Gary & Sons. Contact them at 814-371-4885 with any further questions you may have.

What is the best thermostat to use with my Heating and cooling system?

Picking the best thermostat for your cooling system comes with a lot of considerations. That’s why it’s nice to have such a big variety of choices from Gary & Sons. Whether you’re looking for a programmable or non-programmable thermostat or want to join the smart home trend, there are various thermostats that you have to pick from. Some thermostats will depend on what type of heating and cooling system you have, but the pros at Gary & Sons will be able to help determine what options fit your needs and your budget.

What is a heat pump?

Heat pumps can be a bit confusing due to their name, but they actually meet both your heating and cooling needs throughout the year. When it’s hot outside it works like an air conditioner in that it removes heat from your home, but when it cools off, the process gets switched around and it collects heat from outside and brings it inside. Heat pumps are also very efficient, and may produce up to two or three times more heat than the energy it uses

When replacing your outdoor unit, should the inside unit also be replaced?

Of course we think you should also replace your indoor system, but this is why:


How can I control my energy costs?

Heating and cooling can make up a significant amount of your utility bill. The innovative and high efficiency heating and air conditioning products available from Lennox and Mitsubishi can help decrease these costs. If you’re searching for a new heating and/or cooling system, look for products with high SEER ratings for air conditioners and AFUE ratings for furnaces. SEER and AFUE are a measure of system efficiency, and the higher the number, the more efficient the product. Besides purchasing a new home comfort system, consider these additional factors: 1. Is your system regularly maintained? Whether it’s a furnace or air conditioner, HVAC systems will operate more efficiently after regular maintenance checks. 2. Do you need a zoning system? If there are areas of your home that are rarely used, a zoning system will allow you to heat or cool only the commonly used areas of your house. 3. Are you taking advantage of a programmable thermostat? According to the U.S. Department of Energy, programmable thermostats may reduce your heating costs by up to 35 percent, and your cooling costs by up to 25 percent.

What are the benefits of zoning system?

Zoning systems give you the ability to section off parts of your home and control the temperature differently in each area. These systems are ideal for when you have spaces of your home that are rarely used or when you and your family are constantly in disagreement of what the temperature in each area of your home should be. Zoning systems are quiet and efficient, allowing you more control over the comfort of your home. Discover more about the zoning systems available from Gary & Sons.
