1. Ductless Mini Split Systems

Ductless mini split air conditioners mount on the wall or in the ceiling and blow hot or cool air directly into your space. They’re energy-efficient and allow homeowners without ducted heating systems to enjoy air conditioning. H & H proudly offers ductless mini split installation in Pennsylvania, Delaware, and South Jersey.

2. Smart Thermostats

They let you turn your home heat up or down from a smart phone or PC. Plus, they help you save money on energy and will adjust the programing automatically based on your activity using geofencing technology What’s not to love?

3. Better Maintenance

Homeowners are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of HVAC maintenance. They’re relying on HVAC companies for tune-ups and adjustments. As such, HVAC companies are more commonly offering yearly maintenance plans.

4. Electric Systems

As “green” electricity becomes more available, some homeowners are opting for electric HVAC heat pumps over natural gas, oil, or propane.

5. Geothermal Systems

Geothermal systems are heat pumps that use the earth as a heat sink. They provide heating in the winter and cooling in the summer. They’re becoming more common as homeowners seek eco-friendly and sustainable alternatives.

6. UV Purification

Indoor air quality is so important for health and wellness. Many HVAC companies have begun installing UV purification units that sterilize the air, removing bacteria and other pathogens while the air circulates through the ducts. This is more effective than standard filtration.

7. Better Filters

Customers who don’t install UV systems are still taking air quality more seriously, as evidenced by the increased performance of today’s HVAC filters. HEPA filters are common among those with allergies. Some homeowners are choosing specialized filtration systems to more effectively remove pet dander, mold spores, and other smaller particles.

8. Precision Control

More homeowners are choosing to install zoned systems that give them more precise control over the temperature in certain areas of their homes. When paired with smart thermostats, these systems allow you to easily keep one part of your home warmer or cooler than the others.

9. Heat Pumps

Air source heat pumps are becoming quite popular, especially in places with milder winter temperatures. These electric units heat in the winter and cool in the summer. They eliminate the need for two separate pieces of HVAC equipment and with today’s compressor inverter technology they can operate at ultra-high efficiency levels and create better comfort levels than less efficient equipment.

10. Variable Speed Systems

Older HVAC PSC fans are used to blow air out at one speed. Now, most people are choosing variable speed fans. The fan can run on low when demands are lower and high when demands are higher. This reduces the amount of energy that is wasted.
