If you are looking for a new furnace, you have come to the right place!
From 80% efficient furnaces to high-efficient 95% efficient furnaces, Carmichael Heating & A/C has a furnace that is sure to fit any budget.
The minimum standard efficiency mandated by the US Department of Energy is 78% A.F.U.E. The more efficient the furnace the more you will save on your energy bills for heating your home.
With our climate here in Muskegon you might want to choose a 3-Stage furnace design.
Traditional furnaces are designed to heat your home, and keep you warm and comfortable during the cold winter months; therefore the traditional furnace operates at only one level - high. That means that every time your furnace starts up it is putting out the maximum amount of BTU's that your furnace is designed for. The trouble with that is that in the Muskegon area the temperatures fluctuate and many winter days can be somewhat mild. On these mild days you don't need that full capacity your furnace is putting out to heat your home.
Unlike the traditional furnace that will turn on and run at full capacity with each heating cycle, the three-stage furnace will start out by running in its first stage, which uses only about 34% of its capacity. This reduced capacity is sufficient enough to heat your home on those mild winter days and when the temperature outside drops, the furnace will meet the extra demand by ramping up to the second stage, which is about 68% capacity, and then continue ramping to the third stage on the coldest of days.

There is no better way to stay cool and comfortable than with a central air conditioner system. With efficiencies as high as 21 S.E.E.R, these units have come a long way through the years. The higher the S.E.E.R. the more efficient the unit. Minimum efficiency set by the US Department of Energy is 13 S.E.E.R.
Refrigerant type should be of top priority when choosing a new central air conditioner. Effective January 1, 2010 condensing units will no longer be manufactured utilizing R-22 refrigerant. All condensing units after January 1, 2010 will utilize R410A an environmentally friendly refrigerant. R-22 refrigerant will become available only through recycling causing its price to soar. Choosing a cheaper R-22 air conditioning system now will almost ensure higher repair costs in the future.
Central air conditioning feels so different because it dehumidifies the air inside your home. With central air conditioning all you need to do is; set it and forget it. Carmichael Heating & A/C offers central air conditioning to fit almost any budget and in-home estimates are FREE! Simply send us an email or call 231-766-9133.

Here are a few reasons why you should consider replacing your older air conditioning unit to newer modern energy efficient air conditioning system:
Indoor air pollution can actually be worse for you than outdoor pollution! If you want cleaner indoor air, we can help supply and install dehumidifiers, humidifiers, electronic air cleaners and mechanical air cleaners. We’re also certified in high efficiency air filtration and duct system design, installation, and cleaning.
Humidifiers add much needed moisture to our indoor environment. Especially in our climate Humidifiers are a must.
Ever experience a shock when you touch something? That shock is telling you that there is not enough moisture in the air. Shocks are sometimes devastating to electrical equipment and hi-tech equipment.
Does your hard wood floor tend to separate in the winter months? This is also due to lack of moisture in your home.
Adding moisture to your environment by way of a whole home humidifier will eliminate shocks, separated hard wood floors, it will add moisture to your skin and help your house plants thrive. It will also make your body believe it is really warmer that it is, thus allowing you to set the thermostat down a degree or two, and saving money on energy bills. A whole house humidifier works with your homes heating system, typically a gas forced air furnace. When the furnace is running, moisture from the humidifier is being added and shot through the duct system and finally delivered through the vents in your home.

Up to 90% of our time is spent indoors and much of that time is spent at home. Polluted air in your home can negatively affect your family's health. EPA studies of human exposure to air pollutants indicate that indoor air levels of many pollutants may be 2-5 times and occasionally more than 100 times, higher than outdoor levels. We offer a variety of air filtration systems that provide your family with the cleanest air available.
Unlike outdoor air, indoor air is recycled again and again. This causes it to trap and build up pollutants. Common pollutants include dust, mold and spores, pollen, pet dander and smoke.
Do not believe all the hype associated with air cleaning devices sold via infomercials. According to the FDA most of these devices produce 50 parts per billion of ozone! The EPA regulates outdoor ozone levels, but there is no federal agency that regulates indoor levels. So be careful when choosing a product to clean the indoor air you breathe in a healthy manner.
Knowing what causes poor indoor air quality and how to detect the problem areas is the first step to cleaner air and a healthier living environment. Some illnesses related to poor indoor air quality may include headaches, nose bleed, fatigue, bronchitis, eye irritation, sinus irritation, dizziness, and symptoms of asthma.
