Oklahoma weather is anything but predictable—wild temperature swings, cold snaps, and heatwaves. But, with an efficient and reliable HVAC system, you can keep your home comfortable no what is happening outside. Your HVAC is one of your home’s hardest-working appliances, controlling the indoor climate by regulating heat, airflow, ventilation, and air conditioning. Most homeowners take for granted just how much their HVAC does to improve air quality and indoor comfort until it stops working properly—or at all.
With routine maintenance, an HVAC system can last a homeowner 10 to 20 years or more. But, as with most major appliances, when it’s done, it’s done.
Signs your HVAC is ready for replacement include:
- Increased running time. Starts up more frequently and stays on longer to reach the set temperature
- Loud noises in the blower, outdoor unit, furnace, or air conditioner
- More frequent and serious repairs that start to add up in parts and labor costs
Moreover, there are instances when just because you can keep your HVAC hanging on another 10 years doesn’t mean you should. Upgrading an old HVAC system can add up to major savings for your energy usage and bills. Energy efficiency in the HVAC industry has dramatically improved in the last 10 years, and replacing your outdated unit with a new one could save you between 20% and 40% in energy costs. Plus, upgrading to a qualified, energy-efficient HVAC may make you eligible for tax credits and rebates and can increase the resale value of your home if you’re looking to move soon.
HVAC systems are also becoming more tech-savvy. Newer units feature programmable and digital thermostats that work with your smart home system, and updated technology means new units function better, more efficiently, and more reliably. New units also boast improved dust, humidity, mold, and allergen control.
Replacing an old HVAC system or installing a new one is a significant long-term investment since heating and cooling will account for nearly half of the energy your home uses. Our licensed experts can help you determine the type and size of system appropriate to keep your home comfortable without sacrificing quality or increasing your bills. You can trust Suntech Heat and Air to install the system you need and do it right. Call or text us today at 405-348-9743 to schedule an estimate.

Hot Water Tanks and Tankless Water Heaters
Is your water heater leaving you cold? From your shower and bathroom sink to your dishwasher and washing machine, your water heater works hard—until it doesn’t. Second only to your HVAC in energy consumption, the nearly-constant use of hot water in an average home adds up to about 15% of energy use. A water heater that is malfunctioning or no longer operating as efficiently as it should can quickly rack up expenses in costly repairs and higher bills.
Signs your water heater needs replacement:
- Change in water quality and appearance, such as cloudy or rusty water.
- Change in the taste or odor of your water, specifically a metallic taste or scent.
- Strange noises, such as booms, bangs, or pops.
- Lack of hot water, water that is slow to heat, or low water pressure.
- Warning messages.
- Leaks or pooled water beneath the tank
Hot water tanks typically last between 10 and 20 years, but if yours is on its last leg—or you are looking to upgrade to a more efficient model—Suntech Heat and Air can make replacing it a little easier on your wallet. With a host of options to choose from, choosing your next hot water tank can be daunting, but our licensed plumbing professionals can help guide you through the process, from selection and purchase to installation and maintenance.
Special: $100 off hot water tank*
Standard hot water tanks can store between 20 and 100 gallons of hot water at a time, delivering hot water to as many appliances as necessary at one time. They are a cost-effective and efficient choice for homes that use more than 41 gallons of water each day, especially from the simultaneous use of 2 or more hot water appliances.
Special: $250 off tankless water heater*
Tankless water heaters provide instant, unlimited hot water during set periods and are ideal for homes that use only one hot water appliance at a time or 2 or fewer showers at a time. While a little more expensive upfront than traditional tank water heaters, tankless water heaters can improve energy efficiency anywhere from 24-34%. This can add up to big savings on water and electric bills.

As the largest and most energy-consuming appliance in your home, your HVAC system is vulnerable to an array of potentially damaging power disturbances. It relies on a steady flow of electricity to function properly, and interruptions in that flow—anything from spikes and surges to flickering “brown-outs” and complete blackouts—risk damaging several of the components of your HVAC, particularly in the air conditioning system.
Power surges are especially dangerous to your air conditioning’s circuit board and multiple components, including the compressor pump, thermostat, control system, fan, and blower. Power surges can originate from the grid or your home’s power supply and are most often caused by lightning strikes, disruptions in power generation and transmission, faulty wirings or bad electrical components, or an influx of heavy loads. These sudden increases in electricity can cause instant damage to any of your appliances, melting plastic and metal parts and “frying” circuit boards. The damage could be localized to a specific component, needing a speedy and costly repair, or it could result in complete system failure, requiring a full replacement. Even minor damage increases the wear and tear on your system, risking further potential damage or premature failure.
In most cases, damage your HVAC sustains from a power surge is not covered by system warranty or homeowner’s insurance, leaving you responsible for the costs of repair or replacement. An HVAC system is one of the biggest investments you make in your home, one that can last you 10 to 20 years or more, but it takes just one power surge to wipe out the whole thing.
Protect your investment with a whole-home surge protector. Installed at the main service panel, whole-home surge protectors safeguard your HVAC system and components from potentially damaging internal or external power surges. By reducing the risk and extent of damage, surge protectors can help extend the life of your HVAC and eliminate expensive, unexpected repairs.
Installing a surge protector today can save you time, money, and headache in the future. Let the licensed technicians at Suntech Heat and Air give your HVAC system the protection it needs to ensure years of efficiency and reliability.

Oklahoma can be miserable for allergy and asthma sufferers nearly year-round, both inside and out. Wild swings in temperature keep your HVAC running constantly, stripping moisture from the air inside your home and making it feel as dry as the winds outside. Low indoor humidity can exacerbate respiratory symptoms and illness, cause your heating system to work harder, and even damage your home.
Whole-home humidifiers can help maintain your home’s optimal relative humidity and make the air more comfortable. Optimal relative humidity is generally considered between 30 and 60%. A whole-home humidifier is installed in the ductwork of your central heating and cooling system and adjusts the humidity by providing a constant flow of moisture in the circulating air.
Whole house humidifiers are easy to maintain and can deliver a range of health benefits, including:
- Reducing respiratory symptoms and infections related to allergies and asthma by preventing dust and mold spore accumulation
- Preserving wood fixtures, furniture, and floors that may be vulnerable to warping or cracking from dry air
- Increasing comfort level and decreasing energy costs—the more humidity in the air, the warmer you feel and the lower you set your thermostat
- Minimizing the effects of dry air on your hair, skin, eyes, and respiratory system
At Suntech Heat and Air, your comfort is our priority. Our experienced HVAC contractors are experts in the various types and sizes of whole-home humidifiers and can help you determine what is best for your home. Don’t wait another day to breathe better.
