Benefits of Professional AC Installation
When you purchase a new cooling system, qualified HVAC pros like Advanced Comfort Specialists will ensure that it is properly installed, efficient, and able to reliably maintain a comfortable environment in your home or business. We’ll also help you choose a properly sized air conditioner. A system that’s too small will struggle to meet your demands. A system that’s too large will cycle on and off frequently, consuming excess energy and potentially diminishing its ability to dehumidify the air.
Advanced Comfort Specialists will make an assessment of your home or business based on a cooling-load calculation (or heat-load calculation for heating), while considering factors like square footage, sunlight exposure and insulation. We will also evaluate ductwork before installing equipment. Leaky ducts can dramatically reduce the HVAC system’s efficiency and introduce unfiltered air into the environment, negatively affecting your indoor air quality.
Routine Air Conditioner Maintenance
Even though it may seem like a chore, air conditioner cleaning and maintenance will pay off handsomely in terms of comfort, energy savings and lifespan of the equipment. Nine out of 10 heating and cooling system failures are caused by dirt and lack of routine maintenance. Advanced Comfort Specialists is pleased to offer annual service contracts and seasonal checks for all of your equipment. We’ll inspect all of the components, including safety controls and thermostats, clean and adjust them, remove algae, mold and debris from drains, clean and straighten fins to improve airflow, replace any filters that are dirty or clogged, and advise you about any repairs you should consider.
Repair and maintenance will help you enjoy the comfort of your system without worrying that it may fail. Instead of attempting to fix it yourself, we can come to your home or business, pinpoint any problems, and do whatever is necessary to keep your system in excellent working order.

Types of Furnaces We Install
- Forced-Air Furnaces – Some of the most efficient heating systems available are forced-air furnaces. They burn fuel to heat air and force it through ducts to keep your entire home at a comfortable temperature.
- Gas Furnaces & Oil Furnaces – Virtually all modern furnace systems rely on one of two fuel sources. A gas furnace burns natural gas to produce heat, while an oil furnace relies on heating oil. For most consumers, choosing between natural gas and heating oil will depend on fuel availability and cost in a given area. Gas furnaces generally reach higher fuel efficiency levels, but today’s heating technologies have improved to the point where excellent annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) ratings can be achieved on both types of systems.
There are, of course, some factors that will affect the actual fuel efficiency of your furnace, such as the size of the home, layout, insulation and ductwork. Advanced Comfort Specialist’s technicians can inspect your home, evaluate these factors, and determine the actual energy efficiency of any system. Once our customers weigh this information, together with the cost of fuel and installation, they are able to select the best equipment for their family’s comfort needs and their budgets.
Boilers vs. Furnaces
A gas boiler is another alternative and may be the cleanest and most energy efficient way to heat your Allentown home or office. Boilers operate efficiently and typically last longer than other heating systems, offering excellent value.
Boilers, also known as hydronic heat systems, use hot water for heating. The heat is distributed through hot water pipes, using a pump to heat baseboard, cast iron radiators, or radiant flooring systems. A steam boiler distributes steam through a network of pipes to heat the radiators. Boilers can run on gas, oil or electricity. You may be thinking that using a boiler system for heat and separate central air conditioning for cooling sounds more expensive than simply using the A/C ductwork for heat by adding a furnace. But hot water heating may be worth the additional cost.
Furnaces, on the other hand, blow warm, dry air all around, often creating a drafty environment. This air circulation works well in the summer for cooling, but may not provide the most comfortable heat. Furnaces may also blow dust and allergens through your home. In comparison, the radiant or convection heat from a boiler is gentle, steady and consistent. And there’s no risk of spreading allergens or dust.
Advanced Comfort Specialists can help you weigh the pros and cons of the various heating options to help you decide on the best way to heat your home or office. We can also help you maintain your system’s peak efficiency. If your furnace or boiler is running less efficiently, making strange noises, frequently cycling on and off, or showing other signs of a potential problem, we would be happy to take a look at it.

Tankless Water Heater Installation
If you’re thinking about investing in a new water heater, consider a tankless model. At first glance, tankless water heaters are more expensive than their tanked counterparts. Don’t let the price discourage you. Tankless water heaters are compact and can be installed in very tight spaces. They are also more energy efficient and have a longer lifespan than conventional tank models.
Here are some of the other benefits of tankless water heaters:
- You will never run out of hot water
- The temperature can be precisely controlled
- No heat is lost from an open flue
- There is no risk of water tank rupture
- There is no bacteria or rust build-up
- Tankless water heaters take up far less space
- Better efficiency results in more savings
- The lifespan is 15 to 20 years
