Your furnace is a silent workhorse. It keeps you warm during the chilly months of winter and works with your air conditioner in the summer to push cool air throughout your home’s system. It works all year long, providing constant air circulation, and it is the primary air filtration tool in most people’s homes.
It makes your life better in a million little ways, but it won’t last forever. Eventually, you’ll need to find and install a replacement. But unless it simply up and dies on you, you may not know when the time has come.
Like most people, you are probably not a furnace expert, and that’s ok. To help you, we have compiled a short list of the most common signs that it’s time to replace your furnace.

You can tap into an energy source buried right in your backyard. Find out how with one of our state of the art geothermal units.
Heat pumps provide a variety of benefits for every household. They are energy efficient, which means you save more on your electric bills. Quiet and odorless operation improves your home’s overall air quality. And of course they keep your family comfortable, all year-round.
These benefits, and many more, come with the installation of a new heat pump. How do you know if a heat pump is right for you?
A heat pump operates by either pulling the heat from indoor air and pushing it outside of your home, or pulling the heat from outdoor air and cycling it through your home. This allows your home to be both heated and cooled by one efficient system.
Depending on the type of heat pump, it can dramatically improve your home’s overall heating efficiency. In fact, the Department of Energy has estimated a heat pump can boost heating efficiency from 100-600%. Who doesn’t love getting more for less?
Heat pumps are a great alternative to traditional air conditioning systems. They especially work well in the Greensboro, NC area since we have fairly mild temperatures throughout the year. If you’re looking for an efficient heating and cooling solution that will help you save money on your energy bill each month for many years to come, a heat pump may be the best choice for you.
Turn to our experts here at Air Treatment, Inc. Heating & Air Conditioning. With some assistance from us, you’ll discover a variety of heat pumps available to you – and at affordable prices, too. With almost 50 years of experience in the industry, we’ll find you the right product to maximize your home’s heating efficiency and cost savings, without busting your budget.

When it comes to heating and cooling, you may be a bit confused by the term “packaged unit.” You’ve probably heard of heat pumps and furnaces, but what exactly is a packaged unit?
Packaged systems are a streamlined approach to heating and cooling. The unit contains both heating and cooling components, including the evaporator, condenser, compressor, and others.
Instead of installing multiple units in various locations in and around your house, the system’s components are all contained within a single, space-saving unit. And the best part? Packaged units can be installed outdoors – even on a roof. This makes them ideal for a variety of situations, especially those where indoor space may be tight.
All packaged systems are specially designed to house your heating and cooling equipment in a single unit, but they aren’t identical. Depending on your building and energy efficiency needs, you can choose from the following types of units:
The most common reason to opt for a packaged unit is when optimizing your interior square feet. The ability to be housed outside frees up space previously occupied by a furnace, boiler, or other interior system.
Still have lingering questions? Wondering about the efficiency or affordability of a packaged unit? Ask one of our experienced professionals your questions, and we’ll get you the answer.

Ductless/Mini Split Systems
Twenty years ago, the concept of a ductless system was relatively new in the United States. However, it didn’t take long for their popularity to grow across the entire nation. Ductless systems are more popular than ever as people use them to either augment their existing HVAC systems or to create a customized solution for their individual indoor climate problems.
Basically, ductless systems are individual units designed and installed for the purpose of heating or cooling one single space. They are completely independent of a central heat pump or traditional air duct system, which is how they got their name.
Because they focus on heating and cooling only the space you are in, while you are in it, they are considered highly efficient and easily customizable. Installation is also quite flexible, allowing for insertion into a couple of different places along your wall. This is a huge improvement over basic in-window A/C units or portable plug-in heaters, which are extremely limited in their installation options.
Central air and duct systems are often difficult and expensive to install in existing construction. By contrast, ductless systems are easy to install and can be used to supplement a traditional, existing duct system. Plus, they allow you to keep the various spaces in your home at different temperatures. That could mean an end to the age-old fight for control of the thermostat.
Ductless systems also surpass many options when it comes to energy efficiency. By limiting the heating or cooling to a single space, you use less energy overall. This makes sense when you think about how a light switch works. It’s unlikely your whole house is controlled by a single switch; instead you flip the switch to turn on the lights only in the room you’re currently in. Ductless systems operate under those same principles of efficiency.
Reach out to us today, and we’ll answer all of your questions about your different ductless HVAC system options.

Next to temperature, nothing affects your personal comfort more than the level of humidity. Much like Goldilocks, you know the range you need to feel just right. Too dry and you feel dehydrated, with irritated sinuses, eyes, and skin. Too much humidity and you feel constantly damp, with moisture beading and condensing on a variety of surfaces, including your skin.
Humidity is basically the amount of water or moisture in the air. High humidity can make you feel sweaty and sticky. It can also weigh down straight hair or cause curly hair to frizz. Some people equate it with how they feel inside of a sauna.
However, lack of humidity is no treat either. When air is too dry, you may suffer from a variety of symptoms: dry skin, dry mouth, a barking cough, and even nose bleeds. This is especially bad for people with respiratory problems or asthma. For them, the dry air can feel painful, setting off endless coughing fits or triggering asthmatic symptoms.
Everyone has different needs, but if any of the symptoms described above sound like issues plaguing you, then humidity control solutions would definitely help. It’s not unusual for your needs to vary by season, either. You may need help with dehumidification in summer, and humidification in winter. But the good news is your solution can be directly integrated into your home, giving you one less hassle to worry about.
People frequently attempt to solve their humidity control problems with inexpensive solutions like steam humidifiers or dehumidifying air conditioners. While it may work for them, they end up spending a lot of money on replacing these temporary solutions every year or two.
They also lack the ability to truly fine tune and control the humidity inside their whole house. Temporary fixes like those are usually only good for use in a single, small room.
If you live near Greensboro, the best next step you can take is to contact our experts here at Air Treatment, Inc. Our friendly professionals are standing by, ready to answer all of your humidity control questions. Schedule your in-home evaluation today, and you’ll be on the path to solving your indoor humidity issues.

What if we told you there was a single product designed to slash your home’s energy consumption? What would come to mind? A new furnace or perhaps radiant floor heat?
Would you believe that product is simply your thermostat?
Your thermostat is like the brain of your entire heating and cooling system. It tells your heat when to come on during those chilly winter months and keeps the house comfortably cool in the summer, ensuring the safety of your pet (or antique furniture). Your thermostat has control over the comfort system of your entire house, which is why it can be such a pain when something goes wrong with it.
A thermostat will let you adjust the temperature inside your home, but why stop there? Programmable thermostats let you set a desired temperature for various points throughout the day. Leaving for work at 8:00 a.m. each day? You don’t need to keep your home too cool in summer or too toasty in winter if you're not even home to enjoy it.
No more wasting money on unnecessary heating and cooling. But the best part? Your thermostat knows you’ll be home at 5:30 p.m. and will automatically adjust the temperature to make you comfortable.
Looking for something even more advanced? We carry smart thermostats designed to impress any tech geek. They can tell you how long it will take for your house to reach your desired temperature, track your energy expenditure, and even make recommendations for optimization and improvements. You don’t even need to leave the couch; just use the smartphone app to make your desired tweaks.
If you just want a reliable thermostat that accurately detects your home’s temperature, we have those, too. No smartphone, web connection, or app required.
If you’re interested in seeing what your options are, contact our HVAC professionals today. We can help match you to the thermostat best suited for your needs.
Does your house feel stuffy, dusty, or otherwise make it difficult for you to breathe? We can help.
Boilers are one of the most common ways buildings are heated within the United States. As the name implies, your boiler heats water for a variety of uses inside the structure. Steam can be distributed through radiators, and the hot water created can be leveraged for use with radiant floor heating systems. You can even add on a feature that allows your boiler to heat the water for domestic purposes as well.
Older boiler systems have an energy efficiency range between 56% and 70% according to Energy.gov. That means only 56% to 70% of the fuel you are burning is converted into heat you can use for your home or business. Contrast this with the maximum 98.5% efficiency achieved by some modern boilers, and you can immediately see why an upgrade could cut your energy bills significantly.
Another added benefit is indirect, although highly beneficial to the overall environment. If you upgrade an old system running at just 56% efficiency and install a new boiler operating at 90% efficiency, you will have saved between 1.5 tons and 3 tons of carbon dioxide, depending on the fuel type. Old, coal-burning boilers previously converted to oil or gas fuel are the ones where you are likely to see the greatest improvement.
It’s important that you understand the type of heat distribution currently installed in your home or business. This allows you to maximize your system efficiency, energy savings, and whole-home comfort. Answering just these three questions will put you on the right path toward identifying your best boiler replacement:

Fan and Evaporator Coils
If you are interested in creating a heating cooling system with the highest level of efficiency, then consider these great coil options. Selecting the right coil can improve overall heating and cooling performance, which leads to measurable savings on your electric bill.
Selecting the right evaporator coil for your outdoor unit is critical for maximizing heating and cooling efficiency. But just what, exactly, do evaporator coils do?
An evaporator coil becomes hot or cold, depending on the time of year. When your unit is turned on, air will flow through the coil, and the coil will either warm or cool the air as it passes. This air is then distributed through your home’s ductwork, bringing it to the proper temperature.
The coils vary in size, and selecting the right one can be difficult. Many factors can affect the selection, including the system’s tonnage and efficiency rating (SEER rating). Evaporator coils are generally not recommended for use with oil burning furnaces, at least not without additional modifications. It’s best to work with an experienced professional, like the ones at Air Treatment, Inc., when deciding which to buy.
Fan coils, sometimes called air handlers, are usually utilized for non-furnace systems. They mostly consist of an evaporator coil and blower fan, and are seldom hooked up to ductwork. Instead, they are frequently utilized in industrial, mechanical and storage spaces.
The coil works by receiving hot or cold water from a central system, which then impacts the air flowing over it through the standard process of heat transfer. The fan then blows the air out into the space, heating or cooling it as needed.
If you’re interested in finding out more about how coils can optimize your system, feel free to contact us here at Air Treatment, Inc. We’ll be able to tell you exactly what you need, and answer any questions you might have around selecting the choice that’s right for you.
Would you also like to keep your HVAC system running properly all year long? Ask about our maintenance agreements.
Have you been considering making the switch to a geothermal heat pump? Did you know it’s a great way to save money on your energy bill? It’s a fantastic change that will benefit both your bank account and the planet, all while keeping your home or business consistently comfortable.
Did you know the ground absorbs almost half of the solar energy reaching Earth? The result is the ground remains a steady, moderate temperature just below the surface, regardless of the season.
However, air temperature can fluctuate greatly. This makes traditional air-source heating and cooling units less efficient, especially in times of extreme weather.
By using a system of water-filled pipes to leverage the stable underground temperature, geothermal units create a loop, circulating water to exchange the heat between your home, your heat pump, and the earth. This creates a highly efficient system, resulting in a reduction in your heating and cooling costs of up to 80%.
You are probably thinking to yourself, “Technology this advanced is not going to be affordable for me, or my family.” But you would be wrong. While the initial up-front investment is higher than more traditional methods, the system winds up paying for itself in virtually no time.
If you find the perfect geothermal unit for home and you are concerned about being able to afford it, be sure to check out our great financing and rebate offers. You can also check to see if the installation qualifies you for any federal or tax credit. Because of the positive environmental impact geothermal units have, many federal, state, and local agencies offer incentives to households and businesses that install a geothermal heating and cooling system.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could have just one unit that took care of heating and cooling your entire home? Now you can.
When it comes to your home, being airtight can seriously harm your indoor air quality. While it is fantastic for energy-efficiency, pollutants and allergens can build up over time. With nowhere to go, they are continuously inhaled and exhaled by all the members of your family. This can eventually lead to serious breathing problems and other detrimental health effects. So what can you do about it?
The first step is recognizing you have an issue. The next step is installing a whole-home air purification system. Pollutants are properly filtered out and dander, dust mites, mold spores and others are all significantly reduced.
Over time, you will begin to notice a dramatic improvement in your ability to breathe. Aren’t your health and the well-being of your family worth it?
Scientists have been working for years to identify the root problem leading to skyrocketing rates of allergies and asthma. When examining environmental factors and other triggers, they found the air quality inside participants’ homes to have higher levels of pollution and allergens than they found outdoors. Think about that for a moment. You basically go home every night and cocoon yourself in a bubble of dirty air.
The increasing popularity of whole-home air-cleaning systems is well founded. Air cleaners can be easily incorporated into existing HVAC systems and are customizable enough to meet your family’s individual needs. For certain medical issues, it’s possible your insurance will even help with the bill.
When it comes to installing your air cleaning system, you want the best. Trust Air Treatment, Inc. and our nearly 50 years of experience to make your home a healthy haven once more. Contact one of our certified professionals to find out more about air cleaners and how they can help your family. We guarantee you’ll be glad you did.
Does your air conditioner also need an allergy overhaul? Get more information about all of our great options.
According to the EPA, people spend up to 90% of their time indoors. When your indoor air is twice as polluted as the air outside, you become significantly more likely to develop respiratory and other health issues. This is hardly surprising when you stop to think about the pollen, dust mites, bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms floating around people’s homes.
While the statistics are dire, you can take comfort in knowing there are solutions. Here at Air Treatment, Inc., we recommend a whole home purification system that includes the use of ultraviolet (UV) light. This is not too dissimilar from the systems hospitals use to prevent the spread of tuberculosis and other dangerous illnesses.
Powerful UV light has the ability to neutralize bacteria and mold spores, as well as kill dust mites. For air purification, the air stream passes through a beam of UV light every time it circulates. The air is fully circulated through your home up to fifty times a day, which means it is being purified and neutralized repeatedly.
Over time, symptoms such as allergies, asthma, and other respiratory infections are greatly reduced. Some people even notice their families seem to get sick less often. You also have the added benefit of keeping your HVAC coils free of mold and other growths, increasing your system’s lifespan and efficiency.
Anyone who suffers from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory diseases will benefit from breathing air cleaned by a UV lamp. This also includes individuals with a compromised immune system or increased susceptibility to airborne illness, such as newborn infants and the elderly.
If you’re ready to learn more about how installation of a UV light system can benefit your family, contact us today to learn more about all we have to offer.
Carbon monoxide may be a silent killer, but it’s not undetectable. Learn more information about our carbon monoxide alarms.
Carbon Monoxide Alarms
Every year, more than four hundred and fifty people die from carbon monoxide poisoning, and thousands more are hospitalized. It’s odorless and colorless, leading to its nickname “the silent killer.” And while most people know car exhaust is a source of carbon monoxide, many may not realize their fuel burning appliances, such as gas water heaters and furnaces, also pose a danger.
Deaths from carbon monoxide continue to rise with those over the age of sixty-five being most likely to perish from carbon monoxide poisoning. However, you and your family don’t have to become a statistic.
Carbon monoxide, frequently referred to as CO, is an odorless, colorless, tasteless gas that occurs when certain fuels burn incompletely. Among the fuel types that pose a risk are wood, gasoline, coal, natural gas, propane, and oil.
When inhaled, carbon monoxide passes through the tissues into the bloodstream. Once there, it binds to the hemoglobin in red blood cells, interfering with the oxygen exchange necessary for the body to function. Eventually starved of oxygen, the body can suffer irreversible brain and lung damage and even death.
CO detectors will sound when they sense a minimum amount of carbon monoxide in the surrounding air. Once the alarm sounds, it must be placed in a location devoid of CO in order to reset itself.
The carbon monoxide detectors sold at most big box retailers are not as sensitive as those professionally sold and installed. Often times, the CO detectors from major retailers only sound when there is already a dangerous amount of carbon monoxide present putting your family at risk. On the contrary, our professional grade CO alarms will alert you at the first signs of a carbon monoxide leak.
Local laws vary, but if you are located in or around Greensboro, the experts here at Air Treatment, Inc. can help you. We have a variety of detectors to choose from, and we will help ensure yours are all placed in the most beneficial areas for you and are in accordance with state and federal regulations. This is especially important for individuals planning to rent out homes, or other real estate.
Contact us today, and we will help you with all your CO alarm needs. You can rest easier knowing your family is protected.
