3 Home Improvements You Should Probably Include in Your Holiday Wish List

When you think about a holiday wish list, you’d probably think about new furniture, the oversized Persian rug you’ve always been dreaming of, or the landscaping project that you’re too busy to undertake. While these home improvements sound great, perhaps what you really need is something that would add comfort and “real” value to your home. 

Sharpline Mechanical, a leading HVAC system specialists in Northern California, shares its top three home improvements that homeowners should probably include in their holiday wish list if they want a comfortable and energy-efficient abode all year round.

#1 New HVAC System 

Did you know that replacing your old HVAC system can reduce your energy bill by up to 40%, improve your indoor air quality, and prevent dusty home and unpleasant smell caused by mold/mildew buildup commonly found in older HVAC?

The US Department of Energy recommends replacing your HVAC system every 10-15 years since major components begin to deteriorate around this period, resulting in higher energy bills and maintenance costs. 

When shopping for a new HVAC system, Sharpline Mechanical recommends that you look for the following features: 

  • Temperature and air quality. Did you know that HVAC systems with UV light can improve your indoor air quality? (Related article: SIMPLE HACKS TO IMPROVE INDOOR AIR QUALITY) Or, if you’re more concerned about the excess humidity in your home, why not consider a model designed to reduce the excess moisture in the air?
  • Energy efficiency. Look for HVAC appliances with high energy ratings based on any of these well-recognized system ratings: Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio or SEER, EER AFUE, and HSPE. 
  • Compatibility with a smart thermostat. Make sure that your new HVAC is compatible with a programmable thermostat and features “smart” technology that allows homeowners to reduce their energy consumption without sacrificing their comfort. 
  • Capacity. The capacity of HVAC systems is measured by BTUs (British Thermal Units). As a general rule, the bigger your living space, the higher the BTU rating you need to heat and cool your home effectively. 
  • Durability. While it may be tempting to choose the lowest-priced HVAC units, they are rarely the most efficient. Remember, it’s better to invest in a quality AC and furnace system that allows you to save money in energy and maintenance costs than skimp on this but end up spending more in the long run. 
  • Low maintenance requirements. Quality HVAC systems cost more money upfront, but they generally require lower maintenance compared to cheaper units. Meanwhile, when you negotiate your installation, ask your contractor if they offer a service plan that combines regular inspections and repair and labor warranty into the overall price. At Sharpline, we offer this service plan that includes an $85-worth discount for first-time customers asking for a maintenance service. 
  • Quiet. If you have a low noise tolerance, there are new HVAC systems that produce sounds that only fall between 50-60 decibels. 

#2 Air Purification System 

Did you know that there is an in-duct air purifier scientifically proven to remove airborne pathogens and viruses, including COVID-19? At Sharpline, we install REME HALO at a discounted price. Contact us for more details. 

By including REME HALO (IN-DUCT AIR PURIFIER) into your HVAC system, your indoor air quality can improve drastically. 

  • Remove unpleasant odors caused by cooking, diaper pails, and dirty laundry
  • Eliminate an extensive list of airborne and surface bacteria and viruses 
  • Reduce common allergy triggers like dust, dander, pollen, and mold spores

#3 Home Energy Performance

Having an energy-efficient HVAC system is not enough to save money on electricity. For this reason, Sharpline Mechanical offers Energy Analysis in which we measure your home energy performance. 

During our Energy Analysis, we take a look at your insulation and possible leaks to recommend thermal upgrades before installation. 

As a full-service HVAC specialists in Northern California, we also offer free in-home consultation to help you decide which system installation and sizing fits your needs. 

Final Word on Holiday Home Improvements

Sometimes, the best home improvements are not about aesthetics but more about making your living quarters warm and cozy, improving your indoor air quality, and increasing the energy efficiency of your house.
