Heater Installation, Maintenance & Repair
Generally, you want two things from your central heating system – to keep you comfortable on cold days and to be safe. Those are the main two goals of Air National when working with you.
Most residential heating systems in Southwest Texas use natural gas and should be inspected each year by the professionals at Air National. Natural gas is generally a very safe way to heat your home because it has safety mechanisms in place to avoid malfunctions. However, there are instances where older units developed dangerous leaks or the safety mechanisms themselves malfunctioned. Our technicians will visually inspect your heating system looking for potential problems and test the system to make sure your system is operating efficiently, with no leaks, and all safety mechanisms are working properly. What do you get? Peace of mind.
When it comes to heating your home, you may not realize how many options you really have. That’s why the experts at Air National Heating & Air Conditioning are on hand to answer your questions and guide you through the selection process.Whether you choose natural gas, electric, or a heat pump, Air National provides you with choices that are best for your goals and geometry of your house.

Selecting the Right Heater
We know that it can be pretty overwhelming to pick out a new heating system for your home. After all, this is a big investment and this isn’t the type of purchase you’re likely to make often. But with us, you don’t have to worry. We’ll break down the decision for you to show you how to find the right type and size of heating system to match both the dimensions of your home and your own particular household heating needs.
When you’re trying to decide on a home heating system, one of the toughest parts of the decision can be deciphering some of the information and statistics you’ll read about each system. For instance, all furnaces have what’s known as an AFUE rating. This figure refers to the overall energy efficiency of the furnace and is typically in the range of 80–90+%.
The higher the number, of course, the more energy efficient the furnace and that probably sounds pretty good to you. After all, who doesn’t want to save on their energy bills every month? But when it comes to selecting a furnace, there are other factors to consider besides the AFUE rating that can impact the type of furnace that is actually the best choice for you financially.
That’s because furnaces with a rating of 90% or higher typically cost a good deal more than their 80% counterparts. And an 80% AFUE still means the furnace is pretty energy efficient. In fact, you’d have to use your furnace quite a bit if you want to make up for the higher purchase price of the more energy efficient 90+% AFUE furnace.
