Cooling

Tired of being hot in the summer? Call us at Hankwitz and be cool.

We install Heil for central air conditioning, Fujitsu ductless mini-split systems, and Tetco geo-thermal heating and cooling systems.

Heil air conditioners are quiet, durable and energy efficient. They have energy savings up to 19 SEER (Season Energy Efficiency Ratio) which exceeds federal Energy Star efficiency standards. The minimum set by Energy Star is 14 SEER. (Heil website) The higher the SEER, the greater the energy savings. When choosing an air conditioner, Hankwitz has put their trust in Heil for over 30 years. Heil has numerous ultra-high efficiency products that exceed the minimum efficiency standards of the EPA’s Energy Star Program. Hankwitz will take special care to match you with the air conditioner that meets your needs. Click this link for more information on Heil Heating and Cooling products.

 

 

  If you are looking for heating and/or cooling  for your home or office that doesn’t take up as much room as traditional systems, try a ductless mini-split system from Fujitsu or Comfort-Aire. This system eliminates the need for basement or attic equipment and bulky duct work. Ductless mini-splits use thin copper tubing that pumps refrigerant directly to discreet wall mounted blowers inside, while the louder components like compressors and motors are outdoors. They are energy efficient, allow for individual zoning, require no duct work, and provide you with a peacefully quiet inside environment. Ductless mini-splits are not just made for cooling the air, some units are capable of heating your home or office too. One advantage to mini-splits is the high quality filtration system that allows for better indoor air quality and that prevents the breeding and distribution of airborne bacteria. Other advantages are consistent comfort throughout the room and simple remote operation of the unit. Both companies offer high heating and/or cooling efficiency ratings. Hankwitz wants you to be comfortable with ductless mini-split systems. Call Hankwitz for more information on how this type of unit can work for you.

If Geo-thermal is what you need, Hankwitz can set you up with products by Tetco. All units by Tetco meet Energy Star standards. Geothermal systems use solar energy to make heating and cooling your home extremely efficient. How this works is: the energy is utilized by flowing water solution through pipes buried in the ground, the system circulates the fluid through the system to extract heat from the ground, which is then transferred to the unit where it is compressed to a high temperature and the air is delivered through the home to heat. The opposite is done to cool the home. Geo-thermal systems are recognized as the most environmentally friendly way to heat and cool your home. Let Hankwitz help your home become environmentally friendly. Click this link for more information about Tetco Geo-thermal products.

 

Check with you local utility provider for information on rebates and savings for energy efficient products. Also check for any tax credits that these energy efficient products might have.

 

Some tips from Energy.gov for lowering your cooling costs.

  • Install and set a programmable thermostat, it could help you save up to 10% on heating and cooling costs a year.
  • Buy an energy star qualified air conditioning unit, they’re up to 15% more efficient than standard models.
  • Insulate and seal ducts; air loss through ducts accounts for about 30% of a cooling system’s energy consumption.
