Do your dinner guests look startled when your air conditioner cycles on? Can your furnace powering up wake you up out of a sound sleep?
Even worse, do you have to get up multiple times each night because you are feeling too hot or too cold?
These are just a few of the many signs and symptoms of an aging or ailing A/C and furnace.
Over the last several years, indoor air quality and HVAC technology have advanced together at a startling pace, which is truly exciting in an era where both our cost of living and overall air quality seem intent on heading in the opposite direction!
Today, more air purity and operational efficiency can be achieved with less investment than at any other time in history — with a little help from the newest generation of Napoleon air conditioners and furnaces!
What to Look for in a New Air Conditioner or Furnace
If your current HVAC system has been with your family for many years, it is likely you may not be fully aware of the wonderful money and energy-saving changes today's HVAC units offer.
These new units can deliver high-quality temperature-controlled air “with one hand tied behind their backs” when compared to units from previous decades.
Each important change has been driven by consumer demand, and it probably won’t take you long to recognize your own demands in the following list of new unit features.
Increased air flow
Made here in Canada
Durable, long-lasting components
Safety features built in
Reduced power draw (with reduced energy bills)
High-quality warranty and customer service support
If your current HVAC system doesn’t offer these features, you are missing out on some significant savings!
How to Save $795
Currently, the Energy Star program recommends replacing any cooling or heating appliance that has reached and/or past its 10th birthday.
If you are like many Canadian homeowners today who report spending upward of $2,000 on energy annually, you are likely also eager to reduce energy costs.
Here are just a few ways upgrading your A/C and furnace can help trim your budget:
Programmable thermostat. Adding this feature can save you up to $180 per year in energy expense.
Choosing an Energy Star-certified A/C unit. Picking a certified A/C unit with a SEER rating of 14+ can trim your utility bill by an estimated $115.
Choosing an Energy Star-certified furnace unit. Choosing a new high efficiency furnace can save you up to $500 per year on energy.
So far, you have saved $795, and that is before making any whole-home renovations to further reduce air or humidity leaks and permit greater air circulation throughout your home.

Choosing the Optimal Size A/C or Furnace Unit
For some years, it became common practice to up-size a home’s HVAC system. In this case, upsizing means choosing an appliance with greater capacity than what the square footage of the space actually requires.
Unfortunately, buying a unit that is more powerful than what your space requires doesn’t save you money. The same holds true for choosing a unit that is vastly undersized for your space requirements (although a slightly undersized unit can work well in certain spaces).
What you need to achieve maximum energy and cost efficiency is a unit that is correctly sized for your space in every way.
Because there are so many factors to consider when sizing an A/C or furnace, this is best done with the help of a trained heating and cooling professional. Calculations commonly include floor square footage, wall height, type and quantity of insulation, state of existing framework, and so on.
