Don't Waste Your Money! 5 Heating and Cooling Products to Avoid and What to Buy Instead

As a homeowner, you want to make smart purchases when it comes to your heating and cooling system. But, it can be confusing trying to navigate all the options out there.

In this post, we’ll go over 5 common heating and cooling products you should think twice about buying. (And what to do instead!)

1. Expensive Disposable Air Filters

Those fancy high-static air filters you see at the hardware store may seem like a great idea, but they can actually cause more harm than good. By further restricting airflow in ductwork that may already be too small, you put unnecessary strain on your heating and cooling system. This leads to premature breakdowns and much costlier repairs.

Instead, consider a whole-house media filter or bypass filtration system. These provide high-quality particle removal without choking airflow or sending your energy bills skyrocketing.

2. Cheap UV Lights

While a basic UV bulb can help keep your evaporator coil clean, there are better germicidal light options available. For instance, Sun Heating & Cooling provides high-end UV solutions that optimize air purification. Look for an advanced air cleaner that combines UV technology with other methods like ionization and carbon filtration. Like our favorite product, the iWave! This multi-pronged approach works better to dramatically improve indoor air quality.

3. Surge Protectors Alone

Surge protection is important for any heating and cooling system these days. However, you also want to guard against disruptive electrical issues like brownouts. Adding phase monitoring provides an extra layer of defense against current fluctuations that shorten the lifespan of heating and cooling equipment.

4. IAQ Products Only

Standalone air cleaners, humidifiers, and dehumidifiers can certainly help mitigate indoor air quality issues. But did you know that poor ventilation also plays a major role for many homeowners? Introducing fresh outdoor air and properly conditioning it can make a big impact.

5. Cheap Heating and Cooling Equipment

It’s tempting to choose the “cheapest” heating and cooling system when it comes time to replace your old one. But the latest high-efficiency models offer major benefits that can save you substantially on energy costs over time and have less risk of a breakdown.
