At the end of the day, the real difference maker when it comes to a heating and cooling system that works efficiently, keeps your home comfortable, and lasts for years is the right equipment. That’s why we at G+S offer the latest and greatest HVAC products that will get the job done without breaking the bank. Our goal is to match you with the products that will meet your needs, whether it’s for a small home or a giant office building.

Air conditioner split systems are one of our most popular, high-grade items at G+S.  Split system A/C units include two separate segments.  One segment is installed outside your home (the condenser) and the other inside your home (the furnace), but both work together as one single system. See our video here to check out how they work.  Working together, both parts of the system are able to create a comfortable indoor environment with a precise temperature, optimal airflow, and controlled humidity. Split systems also run quietly while simultaneously providing exceptional controlled comfort. Split systems not only offer comfort but also peace of mind. They’ll give you improved indoor air quality by filtering out toxins and other unwanted air impurities. When purchasing split systems, you can rest easy and rely on your system, which is renowned for its dependability. Some of our most outstanding warranties in our industry belong to split system units!

Are you limited when it comes to space and looking for your ideal heating and cooling option? A packaged heating and cooling system could be exactly what you have been searching for! Packaged systems are powerful, efficient, and compact, designed to fit your home’s needs seamlessly. As opposed to a split-system with separate heating and cooling units, packaged systems combine both a heat pump or gas furnace with an air conditioning system. With this packaged technology, one system will be able to handle anything, from your sunroom at home to your entire office building. Packaged systems come with a lot of flexibility and choice, though. For instance, you can choose to put your unit on the ground or the roof of your home or business. This way, you can choose the most out-of-the-way or unobtrusive place for your system. Have you had problems with your HVAC system being too loud in the past? With a packaged system, you can put it wherever it will be quietest.

Dual fuel systems are commonly called hybrid systems, because they are two systems combined. These units have a lot to offer, as they combine the benefits of a cost-efficient heat pump when temperatures are mild with the high Btu output of a furnace for when the temperatures drop. This makes for one unit that can make sure your home is prepared for whatever winter weather comes. Dual fuel systems are the perfect option for a Carolina winter, as they will run most efficiently in mild winters but can still deliver in harsher temperatures. During mildly cold temperatures, the heat pump circulates heat drawn from outside air throughout your home. Heat pumps are able to do this very efficiently.

There are three types of furnaces: natural gas, oil, and propane.  Given the historic cost of fuel, natural gas has been the cheapest to run in the long term.  Furnaces typically last between 12-20 years and are very durable. 

Unlike gas furnaces, oil and propane furnaces do not require natural gas pipelines running to your house.  Oil and propane furnaces require oil or propane to be stored in an on-site storage tank and oil or propane is regularly delivered to your home. If your home or business does not have access to the gas pipeline system, oil and propane furnaces are great alternatives.  The major drawback of oil and propane is the higher costs of fuel than gas.  So if this is a concern, ask a G+S sales representative about what it would require to convert your home over to an electric heat pump that could end up saving you money.   

Want a simple system with one function: to keep your home warm? Consider a boiler. Boilers provide thorough, constant warmth through your home. No wasted steps, no added noise, just the warmth you need at the time you need it most. When it comes to heating homes, it’s hard to match the level of heat provided by a boiler. For that reason, boilers have, for years, been one of the top options when it comes to residential heating. Boilers are the central piece of a steam/hot water heating system. As such, they heat water and then distribute the heat that results throughout your home through pipes. Different boilers run off of different sources of energy. These sources include natural gas, coal, oil, or wood. The most common models today are ones that run on natural gas. Whatever the source, boilers run efficiently and safely.

Heat pumps are simply perfect for the Carolinas. They run at a high level of efficiency in areas that experience mild winters and many warmer months. Having a heat pump fulfills your year-round HVAC needs. No more maintaining both an air conditioner and a heater. Heat pumps provide the benefits of both in one efficient unit. Heat pumps are different from other systems, as they operate on electrical power instead of burning fuel. This in itself makes heating and cooling your home easier and less expensive. The way a heat pump functions is also drastically different than other heating and cooling alternatives.

In the winter we look to humidifiers to make our comfort more bearable. That warm and cozy air you enjoy all winter long can come at a high price if you’re not careful, and we’re not just talking about a strain on your wallet here. Warm air often dries out the air, leading to side effects like throat and nasal irritation, dry and itchy skin, and a stuffy nose. Dry air also causes hardwood floors and crown molding to dry out and separate leaving gaps in floors and ceilings. If you are a lover of the arts and have musical instruments like a piano or guitar or have oil paintings hanging on your walls, dry air can damage these treasured possessions. If this wasn’t enough, dry air also requires more energy to heat, which means more strain on your wallet. With help from a humidifier, you can increase the relative humidity of your indoor air, making it easier to heat and making you more comfortable. Better yet, when the relative humidity is at optimal levels, your HVAC system doesn’t have to work nearly as hard, giving you a smaller chance of your HVAC unit needing repairs and giving it a longer life. Your utility bills will also be thanking you for adding a humidifier.

In the summertime we have the opposite effect.  Too much humidity, especially here in the Carolinas.  Excess humidity can make it feel muggy in your house, it can wake you up in the middle of the night as you get too hot and clammy under the covers.  Excessive humidity can also cause mold and mildew to grow in your home creating dangerous indoor air quality issues.  Controlling Summer humidity also has a beneficial effect on your wallet.  By keeping humidity under control you can actually keep your thermostat a couple degrees higher but still feel comfortable.  We offer several solutions to control your summertime humidity.  Give us a call and we can recommend what is best for your specific house and your specific situation.”

A smart thermostat is a WIFI enabled thermostat that allows you to control your comfort from virtually anywhere. You can control your thermostat from any smart device: a smartphone, tablet, PC – the options are endless. You may not think that changing the temperature just a few degrees during the day would have such a major impact, but once you receive your first utility bill, you will be amazed by all your savings.

Air filtration operates as part of your existing HVAC system for whole-house air filtration. It operates quietly, efficiently, and out of sight. There are several perks to the addition of an air filtration system. It keeps your house cleaner by filtering out dust from circulation, and it keeps your family healthier by filtering out microbes and pollen. Polluted air can cause throat/nose irritation. It is an even larger problem for people who already suffer from existing health problems like allergies or asthma. Our air filtration models can remove up to 98% of particles down to one micron.

Have you ever noticed that some areas of your home or office are completely different temperatures than the one indicated upon the thermostat? Zoning is key to getting the best out of your HVAC system. Zoning allows a homeowner to ensure that their entire home is heated or cooled to the desired temperature and not just the rooms nearest the thermostat. Zoning also allows you to set different temperatures for different rooms, so you don’t have to pay to heat or cool the areas that you don’t go into regularly. Talk about big savings!

With Ultraviolet (UV) Lights, you can tap the natural energy of UV rays to combat the poor indoor air quality in your home. These lights have just the right energy to break down organic molecules, completely taking them out of your HVAC system and the air you breathe. This helps them target even molecules that are small enough to slip through less stringent filters. These UV light air filtration systems are especially critical in spaces like hospitals or healthcare offices, as they can prevent or minimize the spread of airborne disease. Keep your building clean and your patients healthy with the toughest air filtration products out there.

At G+S we offer two technologies to kill bacteria, viruses, mold, and other harmful particulates.   In the HVAC Ultraviolet (UV) world there are two types of solutions.  The first is what is commonly referred to as a “stick light”. It goes right next to your cooling coil and is intended to keep it clean and free of microbial growth.  It bathes the coil in UV-C wavelength light thereby killing mold, spores, viruses, and bacteria that come in contact with it while also helping to reduce odors off the coil.  It is considered a “passive” system in that air molecules have to pass over the UV light area to be killed.  If they don’t come in close proximity to the light source there is no effect on them. UV stick light treatment also increases system performance and energy efficiency by keeping the cooling coil clean of buildup. 

Another set of solutions are considered “active” systems.  Which means they go out into the airstream and attack bacteria, viruses, mold, gases (VOCs), odors, pollen, dust, and other airborne particles.  They not only neutralize these harmful molecules in the air, they also neutralize them on surfaces such as tabletops, countertops, and furniture.  The manufacturers likes to say it is a “flu shot” for your home.  These active systems use two types of technologies, bi-polar ionization and photocatalytic oxidation (PCO).  PCO technology is based on a UV light interacting with special metals to create oxidation.  While bi-polar ionization technology is based on two emitters creating equal amounts of positive and negative ions. When these ions are injected into the air stream, creating a plasma region, they break down passing pollutants and gases into harmless compounds like oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and water vapor.

This may all sound confusing because it is.  But rest assured, we have spent countless hours getting familiar with the technologies and installing them in many homes and places of business.  Almost all our products have proven 99% effective at killing the COVID-19 virus.  Give us a call and we can recommend the best product for your specific application.

A gas fireplace offers you a great way to heat your home and simplify your life. Fires are effective at providing heat, but require time and attention to start and maintain. This is where gas fireplaces might become a better choice. First of all, gas fireplaces burn cleanly, which means less hassle for you. No more carrying heavy, dirty pieces of wood through the house to be fuel for the fireplace. Another benefit is that everything nearby doesn’t smell like smoke, as gas fireplaces don’t pollute the air like typical fires. Gas fireplaces can also be an easier alternative for installation than a traditional fireplace. While a traditional fireplace requires a full chimney, which can be expensive and complicated to install in your home, a gas fireplace just requires piping in and exhaust vents out. When you have professionals like G+S to install your piping, too, the process gets a lot easier.

In search of an option that is cleaner, more efficient, and less expensive than oil or propane? Natural gas is your best bet. Many homeowners are aware of this fact – that’s why natural gas is becoming the most popular energy source option for their appliances. But what if all of your appliances are designed for and use propane gas? Simple: make the conversion. Believe it or not, the conversion is simpler than it sounds. Most appliances, with the exception of older water heaters, can be used with either propane or natural gas. Each fuel source, however, does require special gas utilization fittings due to the difference in levels of pressure for operation. This is where G+S comes in. As experts in propane to natural gas conversion, we can handle the entire process of identifying the appliances you want to be switched, ordering any necessary conversion parts, and installing everything for you.
