Heating & Cooling System Installation In Jobstown, New Jersey
The DiPietro’s home in Jobstown, New Jersey is a very typical type of house for this area. Their ranch home had a heating and cooling system that was not keeping the family comfortable all year long. Additionally, the old system was not installed to meet current code.
PFO Heating & Air Conditioning installed a new oil furnace and central air conditioner for the DiPietros. The new furnace was a Granby Conforto KHM100 with a Beckett burner. The new central AC system we installed was a Payne system equipped with eco-friendly R-410A refrigerant.
Due to the nonconforming code conflict of the old HVAC installation, we had to move the new equipment away from the electric panel. We also had to increase the distance from the floor to the furnace. These configuration changes needed to be done to comply with the current building codes.
The DiPietro family was experiencing hot and cold spots throughout their home. Upon inspection by one of our HVAC experts, we determined that their existing heating system had a cracked heat exchanger. Furthermore, their existing central air conditioning system was running on outdated R-22 refrigerant. Both the heating and cooling system needed to be replaced.
We installed a brand-new heating and cooling system for the DiPietros. The new heater was a Granby Conforto KHM-100 equipped with a Beckett oil burner. The central air conditioning system we installed was a Payne AC unit.
Providing Greater Comfort and Less Cost in Jobstown NJ
Granby Conforto KHM-100 In Jobstown
Fortunately, the DiPietros called us when they did. A cracked heat exchanger is one of the more severe problems that a furnace can experience. When the heat exchanger is cracked, it causes improper venting, implying that your heater can leak carbon monoxide into your home. Carbon monoxide poisoning is undetectable and can be fatal. Therefore, like the DiPietros, you should always call when you notice a problem with your heating system.
We installed a new Granby furnace in their home. PFO Heating & Air Conditioning highly recommends Granby heating systems to their customers. These units are manufactured in such a way that they can provide an optimal level of comfort. Since they are extremely energy efficient, this family will pay less on their heating costs during the winter season. Also, these systems are built from durable materials which gives them a long lifespan. Our customers will be able to count on their new Granby furnace for many years.
Some additional features that come with the Granby Conforto KHM-100 include:
Compact design to fit in small spaces
Triple-pass heat exchanger
Energy efficient: Energy Star certified

Payne PA13NA In Jobstown
The DiPietro home had an old Goodman AC unit in place. Since winter is coming to a close and the warm weather is right around the corner, they decided that it would be best to address their cooling needs while we were there.
Their old unit used R-22 refrigerant, which is phased out by the EPA. Furthermore, since their unit was old, it did not perform as efficiently as it once had. It was unable to provide the comfort that they needed to get through the hot and humid Jobstown summers. Therefore, we recommended an AC replacement for their home.
At PFO Heating & Air Conditioning, we recommend Payne air conditioning systems. We do so for many reasons. They are reliable, energy efficient, and can provide a high level of comfort. Some of the features of this particular unit include:
13 SEER rating
Materials are corrosion-resistant: baked-on powder coat finish which is placed on galvanized steel
10-year warranty on parts
With this new air conditioner in their home, the DiPietro family can count on feeling cool and comfortable in their Jobstown home, regardless of the temperatures outdoors. Furthermore, although it is still the heating season, they know that they are fully prepared for the summer weather once it arrives. They have increased the value of their home, and they will pay far less on their cooling costs this summer.

Save Money By Replacing Your Furnace And AC At Same Time For Your Jobstown Home
If your air conditioner has stopped working, but the furnace is still functioning, you might be tempted not to replace the entire HVAC system. Here are the reasons why you should consider a full replacement.
Comfort is something that is important to all us. That is why we rely on the air conditioner and heating units in our houses. A good HVAC system can help to keep you cool during the summer and warm during the winter.
When it comes time to replace one or both of the systems, many homeowners are tempted to install the system that is causing the most problems. When you deal with a significant expense, it can be easy to want to wait and not replace the other system right away.
However, if you replace both your air conditioning and heating system – even if one is working still – over the long term, it can save you money and energy.
The best thing to do is to become familiar with the features that the new technologies offer and get expert advice about what the best option is for your house. There are definite advantages to replacing your AC and furnace at the same time to provide maximum benefits for both your wallet and home.
Having two new systems installed can make your home very comfortable. The following are some of the top advantages of having a new air conditioning system, and furnace installed simultaneously.
Today’s heating and air conditioning systems that are currently being manufactured use a lot less energy and are highly efficient compared to systems from only 10 to 15 years ago. The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio ratings can be checked to compare the efficiency of various air conditioning systems while you are doing your research. The minimum government standard is a SEER rating of 13 for cooling systems. A higher SEER rating means less energy is users and costs less to operate.
For furnaces, the rating that is commonly used is the annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE), which measures seasonal performance. It is recommended to have an AFUE rating of at least 90 percent for an efficient, new furnace system. Heating pump systems and boilers have a recommended number that is slightly different.
A modern furnace will last an average of 15 to 20 years, while a central conditioning system will last an average of 12 to 15 years, which will depend on the equipment’s efficiency and quality.
2. AC And Furnace Performance
Mixing new and old technology can decrease the performance of your system. When you replace only one part of an overall HVAC system, it can reduce the performance of both of these systems. When a new high efficient system is combined with an older system, their components do not match. Therefore, the new technology will not be used to its complete potential.
A central air conditioning system and furnace system share the same blower or air handler. When you have a matched system, along with an efficient handler, it allows both of the systems to operate correctly, which gives you the home comfort that you want.
4. Save On Air Conditioning And Heating Expenses Over The Long Term
A “matched system” will save you money because:
All of their components have been designed to work well together to maximize efficiency over the long term. If repairs are necessary, the systems will both be under warranty (and new systems require fewer repairs overall). New systems have less involved and complicated installation processes as well. (For example, if you replace your air conditioner and then wait to replace your heating system, you might end up paying for a second installation when the other unit needs a replacement.)
When you do not replace both the AC and heat systems with efficient, new equipment, it may lead to frustration, discomfort, and unnecessary expenses.
When a new system is matched with an inefficient, old system, it can potentially reduce the new system’s life span. Be sure that you completely understand your warranty. Manufacturers in some cases are not required to honor warranties on a new system when it is combined with an older system if it breaks down when it is under warranty. If you replace both systems simultaneously, it will ensure that you are protected by the warranty if needed.
Your Home’s Cooling And Heating Value
By keeping the compatible, high-quality systems for cooling and heating maintained, you improve your home’s overall value. For maximum cost savings and efficiency, if you replace the air conditioner and furnace simultaneously, whenever possible, it will provide you with modern convenience and reliable comfort.
