In Beaumont TX, your home's heating and cooling system accounts for over half of your annual utility costs. For older and less efficient units, the percentage climbs to almost 70. Investing in new equipment is a significant step towards saving money and increasing indoor comfort levels. If you are ready for an upgrade, Thermacon recommends that you consider a few of the following bright ideas from Carrier for new heating and cooling in Beaumont TX.
Sorting Your Heating and Cooling Priorities
It helps to know exactly what you want your new heating and cooling system to accomplish. All units have basic capabilities but beyond this point there are many different options. For some, having the most technologically advanced equipment is critical. Others may need financial economy above all else. Keep in mind that high efficiency equipment, with a greater upfront cost, usually pays for itself within just a few years. What are your purchasing priorities?
- Environmentally friendly
- Lowest possible energy usage
- Quiet operation
- Remote access
- Lowest possible initial purchase price
- Advanced technology
Once you know what your top priority will be, it becomes easier to narrow down your selection. Carrier offers three different series in order to tailor your equipment to your personal heating and cooling needs. Starting with the top of the line products, these are:
- Performance Infinity Series- A recipient of Energy Star's 2012 Most Efficient award, these highly advanced units utilize Greenspeed technology. This allows the system to detect the minimal capacity that it needs to operate at and adapt the operating speed automatically.. For example, an older unit may run at 100 percent capacity every time you turn it on. The Performance Infinity series will run at a capacity as low as 40 percent, depending on the demand. You save a bundle in operating costs. A heat pump with the new technology is 69 percent more efficient than any other unit.
- Infinity Series- Representing the best of Carrier's products, the Infinity line combines efficiency with superior control and comfort capabilities
- Comfort Series- For those who are looking for a good system that is very affordable, the comfort line comes in a variety of different configurations. All units are Energy Star rated and offer excellent dehumidifying capabilities.
Available Unit Configurations for Heating and Cooling in Beaumont TX
All of the above series are available in configurations designed to meet your personal needs. Whether you are purchasing just an air conditioner or you need an entire packaged system, there is a lot to choose from. If your needs are very specific you may want to consider the following equipment as a stand alone purchase as opposed to an entire package.
- Air conditioner
- Furnace and air conditioner

How Much Can You Save on Heating and Cooling?
The actual amount of money that you save on a new system will depend on several factors. The most obvious consideration being the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, or SEER, of your equipment. The higher the rating, the less you spend on operating costs. The type of fuel your system uses, the size of the equipment and professional installation also matter.
We have seen homeowners that actually lose money because they tried to select and install a system by themselves. Usually, this happens when they choose a bigger unit than what they need. This causes the system to run longer, thereby increasing the operating costs. Sometimes owners miss out on savings because they simply don't know what technology is available.
You have the ability to choose duel fuel systems, geothermal systems, as well as ductless units. Before deciding based on price, ask us about available financial incentives for the equipment features you like. You may find that the cost drops drastically once special discounts are subtracted. Carrier offers excellent cash rebates and seasonal promotions. In addition, Geothermal units come with a strong tax advantage. Up to 30 percent of the purchase price is eligible for deduction.
