Training Today for Tomorrow’s Heating and Cooling Advances
Today’s heating and cooling equipment is much more sophisticated than systems of the past. Air conditioners and furnaces are continually being improved to meet efficiency and environmental/regulatory goals. As technology advances, so must our skills. That’s why the technicians at Lancaster Brothers Heating and Cooling are always learning about new advances in furnaces, air conditioners, thermostats, geothermal equipment and more.
Modern HVAC Equipment
We’ve seen quite a few improvements in heating and cooling equipment in the last couple of decades. Because most ACs and furnaces last 10-15 years, many of our customers are surprised to learn about all of the new features there are when it comes time to replace their old unit. Newer units are quieter and more energy efficient thanks to some of these changes. Here are just a few that may take you by surprise:
Dual Stage Air Conditioners
20 years ago, there was no such thing as dual stage air conditioners. Today, we have systems with two-stage cooling, which means it runs at a low level most of the time and kicks into high gear when temperatures soar. This saves both energy and money.
Smart thermostats are popular now too and Lennox offers a wide variety of smart thermostat options. Our technicians are familiar with all models so they are able to set them up and train our customers on how to use them to get the most comfort and savings possible. Smart technologies will continue to evolve and become integrated into our homes allowing us to control a home’s comfort levels from just about anywhere.
Our Technicians Receive Ongoing Training
Lennox is always working on ways to improve their products, so we attend trainings to keep us up to date on any changes in equipment installation and maintenance. During our slower service times, our technicians watch online training videos to stay abreast of all the changes. As a company, we’re required by Lennox to have 40 hours of training every year. Lennox also has in-store training that we attend. In fact, three of our techs will be attending a three-day WaterFurnace (our geothermal systems) training class this month (April).
Advanced Air Purification
Many air cleaning systems filter out particles. Some combat germs, and some fight odors, but only the Lennox PureAir™ Air Purification System addresses all three types of indoor air pollutants – airborne particles, germs and bacteria, and chemical odors and vapors. What that means in English, is that PureAir™ filters out 99.9% of all particles like pollen, dust, and pet dander. It removes over 95% of viruses such as MRSA, flu, and cold. Plus it removes and destroys over 50% of household odors and chemical vapors. Plus, unlike many other air cleaning solutions, PureAir™ doesn’t generate any ozone (a lung irritant). In fact, its carbon filtration actually reduces ozone generated by other sources in your home.
