Choosing the Right Size Unit For Your Home

Never buy a bigger A/C system than you need. Mullins Heating & Air technicians are trained to help you choose the most energy-efficient unit that will cool the size space you have. A larger than needed unit will cost more to run and may not keep your home as comfortable as the right-sized equipment. For help with understanding energy-efficient A/C options and selecting the system that’s right for you, contact Mullins Heating & Air, the heating and air experts.

Did You Know Plants Are a Natural Air Cleaner

Plants not only thrive in spite of household air contaminants, but also help to remove them from the air. Airborne formaldehyde (a carcinogen that comes from materials like plywood, adhesives, carpet and paint) and carbon monoxide (produced by heating or cooking equipment) are two examples of toxins eliminated by houseplants. Combine this idea with additional tips and equipment options designed to improve the air your family breathes. Contact Mullins Heating & Air, the heating and air experts, for more information today.

The Meaning of AFUE

If you’re shopping for a new heating system, you’ve probably encountered a lot of unfamiliar terms already. Like AFUE, or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. As with your car’s miles-per-gallon rating, a higher AFUE rating means a higher efficiency unit. An AFUE of 90% means 90% of the fuel is used to heat your home, while the other 10% is wasted in gases vented outside. Choose a higher AFUE to save more energy. At Mullins Heating & Air, we can help you choose the right system to optimize your home comfort and energy savings. Call us for more information today.
