GALVEZ AIR CONDITIONING & REFRIGERATION INC. INSTALL THE BEST FURNACE BRANDS
Whether you need to replace a dead furnace or install an entirely new heating system, you’re looking at a significant investment. Your HVAC pro can look at your particular house – its size, configuration, age – and help you determine the best and most cost-effective way to heat it. GALVEZ AIR CONDITIONING & REFRIGERATION can explain you all details of Heating System.
Consider what kind of fuel you should use: gas, electric, oil or something else. Most homeowners stick to whatever their homes already had to minimize the labor and costs associated with extra installation of things like duct work or running electric lines.
But there could be reasons to change. Your location, house size, and energy bills will all factor in to your final decision on which furnace type, model, and size is right for your home.
DUAL FUEL HEAT PUMP & FURNACE SYSTEMS
Get huge savings on your monthly energy costs with a Dual Fuel Heat Pump & Furnace System. The best of both worlds, Duel Fuel systems provide you with the most energy-efficient home heating and cooling system by pairing an electric heat pump with a traditional gas furnace. Heat pumps are extremely efficient for cooling all summer long, and for heating until temperatures drop below 35 degrees, at which point the natural gas furnace kicks in, saving you from high electrical bills in the winter.
Considerations for furnace system replacement
Home Size and BTU Calculations
Since the difference in price between various heating capacities can span thousands of dollars, getting one that far exceeds the home’s size requirements can waste over $10,000. On the other hand, getting a furnace that is too small to meet the home’s needs means the furnace will run constantly. This level of use can drive up utility bills and require repair or replacement sooner than usual.
To figure out the average heating capacity that a home requires, calculate the square footage of the home. Homes typically require 30 to 60 BTUs per square foot. Whether a home needs more or fewer BTUs depends on the climate zone where the home is located.
A more precise way to determine the best furnace size for a space is to do a load calculation. Prior to the age of computers, many contractors shied away from this calculation. It’s very involved and requires a lot of information, but it results in a more exact calculation. With an accurate load calculation in hand, it’s much easier for homeowners to make an informed purchase.

Called and Jose was at my house within a few hours. Doesn’t charge a trip fee , you only pay for his time and parts which aren’t doubled in price. Couldn’t be happier. Nice to find a air and heat Company that’s trust worthy and so reasonably priced. He also has no problem working week ends without charging extra. Very satisfied. 😀

Our ac unit wasn’t working when we came home from being out all day. We called Jose from Galvez Air Conditioning at 6:49p on a Saturday and he was here within 20 minutes. They diagnosed the issue and replaced the faulty part quickly. I would highly recommend them to anyone with ac unit issues!
