IMPORTANT LEHIGH VALLEY AIR CONDITIONING INFORMATION

If you live in Pennsylvania or New Jersey and keep cool over the summer with an air conditioner, you need to know about R-22 refrigerant. The USA has enacted an R-22 ban that will take effect in just a few short months. Keep reading to learn more and contact Deiter Bros. if you need any help with an A/C conversion or replacement this summer.

Answers to Your Questions

Q: What is R-22 A/C refrigerant?

A: R-22 is a substance that works within an air conditioner to cool your home. Without refrigerant, air conditioning, refrigeration, and freezing technology would be impossible—and we would still be delivering ice to keep your home cool!

Q: Does my air conditioning system use R-22?

A: Chances are, yes. For decades, R-22 has been the most common refrigerant for air conditioner manufacturers. If you want to confirm, just give Deiter Bros. a call. We’ll be pleased to send out a technician who can easily check for you.

Q: Why is R-22 being banned?

A: The EPA has ruled R-22 as too damaging to the environment, and in particular, the ozone layer. Sales and importation will be prohibited beginning January 2020.

High-Efficiency Air Conditioners

Along with using a modern, clean refrigerant called R-410A, newer air conditioning models are more energy efficient. Check out some benefits of upgrading your air conditioning system this year:

·         Better energy efficiency

·         Savings on electricity bills

Energy-Saving Tips for PA Homeowners | Deiter Bros.
4 simple tips to use less energy and spend less money this spring. Visit Deiter Bros. for air conditioning upgrades, household tips, and more.

 

Easy Ways to Save Energy in PA this Spring

Spring has officially sprung! Things are finally starting to thaw and Lehigh Valley homeowners are tackling spring cleaning projects to prepare for warmer weather. Are you looking for simple ways to use less energy while maintaining premium home comfort? Here are some industry-approved tips to help you do just that:

1.     Weatherproof your home
Caulking your windows and insulating doors are great ways to keep your home the temperature you want it. Sealing up air leaks will prevent hot air from getting in and precious A/C air from escaping out.

2.     Book your tune-up

An annual air conditioning tune-up is essential to prepare your equipment for the summer season. One yearly visit from our HVAC specialists will help increase operating efficiency, lower utility bills, reduce the risk of midseason breakdowns, extend equipment lifespan, and help avoid expensive surprise repairs.

If you sign up for an A/C service plan, you’ll benefit from an included tune-up plus important service plan benefits like priority repair service, special repair discounts, and more.

 

3.     Wash clothes in cold water
Run your washing machine on cold to spend less on water heating. Unless you have a serious stain, cold water can clean clothes just as effectively as hot water. Plus, cold-washing clothes helps prevent shrinking, fading and color bleeding.

4.     Consider an upgrade

If your air conditioning system is 15 years or older, you could save up to 10% on annual energy costs by upgrading to a new high-efficiency model. Eventually, older systems will require more frequent repairs, which add up! Investing in a new high-efficiency air conditioner will provide long-term savings and better overall comfort.

Follow us on social media for more energy-saving tips! Contact Deiter Bros. to book a tune-up, request an installation quote, or to ask questions about using less energy this season.

Ductless Air Conditioning in Lehigh Valley, PA| Deiter Bros.
With cooling and heating functionalities, ductless is an affordable way to cool your house. Contact Deiter Bros. to equip your PA home with a ductless A/C!

 

Why You Need a Ductless Mini-Split A/C

Pennsylvania homeowners in the Greater Lehigh Valley area get the best of both worlds throughout the year—a nice balance of warmth and cold. To accommodate for these varying temperatures, there’s nothing better than a Mitsubishi ductless mini-split air conditioner. This versatile equipment can be used for cooling or heating, depending on the weather and your family’s preference.

Benefits of a Ductless Air Conditioner in PA

Central A/C is nice, but is it really worthwhile to pay to cool your entire home, including the rooms you don’t use very often? Instead, cool the rooms you use the most with zoned heating, a common energy-saving strategy in PA. Here are some perks to this useful equipment:

 

Zoned Cooling Saves You Money

Cooling every room in your house is an expensive luxury. Instead, just air condition the rooms you use the most—for example, your bedrooms, living room, and kitchen. Install them into any and all rooms you want, without wasting money and electricity on areas you don’t use.

 

Whisper-Quiet Operation

This almost-silent appliance is perfect for families who don’t want to be disturbed by annoying sounds in their living areas. The indoor units are quiet, which allows you and your family members to enjoy listening to each other instead of your cooling equipment.

 

Efficient Electric Power

Electricity is well-known for its high efficiency. Since ductless mini-splits run on your home’s electricity, there’s no need to worry about keeping fuel in stock for your unit. Simply turn the A/C on at the temperature you want, kick back, and enjoy total comfort.

 

Sleek Design & Easy Installation

Ductless mini-splits look nice and are simple to install, because they are hooked up to the walls in the rooms you want. One outdoor unit connects to one or more indoor units, making the ductless mini-split exactly what you want it to be: nothing more, nothing less.

 

Mitsubishi’s “Hyper Heat” technology Makes this a Year-Round Tool

Did you know that ductless mini-splits can be used to heat as well as cool? Mitsubishi’s Hyper Heat technology provides efficient heating in temperatures as low as -13!

 

Install your ductless mini-split today! Contact Deiter Bros. for details on financing or installation.

Money- and Energy-Saving Upgrades for Your Home

 Have you noticed that your utility bills are getting higher every season? The age of your heating system and the efficiency of your home could be to blame. There are several essential HVAC upgrades you should consider to help you save money, lower your energy use, and enjoy better home comfort. The best part? These investments require little effort and deliver major returns.

 


 

 

Upgrade Your Pennsylvania or New Jersey Home

 

 

     

     

  • Smart Thermostat

     

    Unlike a standard thermostat, a smart thermostat is usually Wi-Fi connected and learns your temperature preferences. Smart Thermostats like the NEST are also ENERGY STAR® rated and most are eligible for rebates.

  •  

     

  • Heating System

     

    Upgrading to a new high-efficiency boiler or furnace can help you save big on energy and heating costs. The initial cost may seem high, but when you factor in more efficient operation, consistently lower heating bills, reduced need for repairs, and added value to your home, the pros far outweigh the cons.

  •  

     

     

  • Water Heater

     

    Is your water heater meeting the needs of your household? Water heaters typically last for just 10-12 years. As they age, their performance will decrease – leaving you with cold showers and more expensive utility bills. Upgrade to a new tankless water heater that has what it takes to supply hot water for daily essentials, like laundry, dishwashing, showering, and more.

  •  

     

  • Humidifier

     

    Pennsylvania and New Jersey residents are all too familiar with dry winter weather. Did you know that adding a humidifier to your home can completely change the air you breathe? With the right humidifier, your family can enjoy more warmth and better respiratory health.

  •  

     

  • Propane Fireplace

     

    Enjoy a cozy ambience without the hassle of a traditional fireplace. Propane fireplaces are significantly more efficient and most typically fit right in to your existing wood fireplace! Instead of using heated indoor air to burn, a propane fireplace draws outside air into its firebox and then a fan circulates warm air into your living space. This results in serious cost savings.

Decisions, Decisions...

Are you the sort of person who says, “I may be indecisive, but I’m not sure.”

Making decisions is no laughing matter, and homeowners are faced with a slew of them. Some are smallish, like selecting new towels for the guest bathroom. Some are a little larger, like choosing a new bed for the guest bedroom. And believe it or not, some decisions get even more sizeable than that...

Utilities charge YOU for gas they lose!!

I read this article in the July 11 edition of the Times-Tribune and thought I would share it.

It begins : Natural gas prices have declined steadily over the last few years because of the discovery of huge new domestic sources, including the Marcellus Shale.

Consumers could save even more if the state Public Utility Commission would force gas utilities to account for the vast amounts of gas that they lose between the well and the consumer.
