Making informed decisions about your home’s heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) system can have a dramatic impact on your utility bills – and your comfort.

Making certain your new equipment is sized properly and installed correctly is equally important to ensure that it performs efficiently and provides the level of comfort you expect. Some mid- and high-efficiency furnaces offer additional features that provide greater comfort, as well as additional energy savings.

At Hovland’s, we do a thorough inspection and evaluation for every individual installation so that we install the proper equipment size and efficiency for your needs. We perform a heat loss/gain calculation to be as accurate as possible in sizing your new HVAC system.


Heating Systems
Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) is a measure of a furnace’s heating efficiency and one of the first things to consider when purchasing a gas furnace. By replacing an old, inefficient unit with a new high efficiency model, more of the fuel you pay for is turned into heat. The more efficient the furnace – the lower your heating bill. Although higher efficiency units may require a greater initial investment, over the life of the unit the incremental cost is normally recovered through energy savings and lower operating costs during the first few years.

Cooling Systems
Usually, the higher the efficiency, the more expensive the initial cost of the unit. Since we live in the Midwest where our cooling demand is considerably lower than in southern states, it is sometimes difficult to justify the higher cost of the most efficient air conditioners on the market. The incremental cost will take longer to recover since the energy savings are only recognized during the summer months. It is important to consider however, that air conditioning units typically last longer in our area, because they are only used during limited months during the year. Over the life of the unit, energy savings from a more efficient unit can be significant. The professionals at Hovland’s will be happy to recommend an air conditioning unit that will provide the best value for our climate.

Heating Systems

Gas and oil furnaces provide warm, balanced heat throughout your home by circulating heated air through ducts. The heat is created by burning gas or oil inside your furnace.

As much as half of the energy used in an average home is for heating and cooling. Making informed decisions about your home’s heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) system can have a dramatic impact on your utility bills – and your comfort.

Cooling Systems

Central air conditioners are “split systems”, which means they consist of an outdoor (condensing) unit and an indoor (evaporator) unit. Both components are necessary for a working system. The air conditioner is designed to transport heat out of your home using a refrigerant. Air from your home passes through an indoor coil mounted in your furnace. Heat is absorbed from the indoor air and the resulting cooler air is then circulated back into your home through your duct system. The heat from your home is extracted and released through the outdoor coil.

While it’s keeping you cool, your air conditioner also is effective at removing humidity from your indoor air. The process is similar to moisture condensing on the outside of a glass of ice water on a hot, humid day.

If you install a new outdoor unit, be sure to include a new, equally efficient “matched” indoor coil. Using an existing “old” indoor coil may save you money up front, but won’t give you the best value. Although it may still work, it will not perform as efficiently and over time will cost you more money. Also, if the components aren’t matched, additional stress on your cooling system may shorten the life of your equipment.

Indoor Air Quality

Our team understands how important indoor air quality is, so to support a healthier air quality in your home, we sell and service all types of indoor air quality (IAQ) products relating to filtration, humidification and ventilation. Our experienced staff will work with you to identify a solution for whole-house air purification and conditioning that meets your needs.

Radon Testing & Mitigation

It is estimated that about 1 in every 15 homes has an elevated radon level. This means new and old homes, well-sealed and drafty homes, and homes with or without basements. EPA recommends that you take action to reduce your home’s indoor radon levels if your radon test result is 4 pCi/L or higher. Testing is the only way to determine what your home’s radon level is. You cannot predict levels based on state, local, and neighborhood radon measurements. Short-term and long-term radon test kits are available from the Eau Claire County Health Department (715-839-4718) or various other local retail stores. Hovland’s offers testing with a continuous radon monitor.

Since 1944, Hovland’s has shared a commitment to quality and reliability as an independent Lennox dealer. Hovland's is pleased to offer a full line of dependable and energy efficient systems from Lennox! Contact us today for more information!

Gas Furnaces

We offer a full line of Lennox gas furnaces that provide reliable, energy efficient heat for your home. The majority of home buyers today choose natural gas as their primary heating fuel because gas systems typically cost less to operate than other fuels. On average, half of your family’s energy is related to heating your home – no matter where you live, natural gas is the economical choice

Oil Furnaces

We’ll provide a more energy efficient option for situations where an older oil furnace needs to be replaced and implementing an alternative fuel option isn’t available. Lennox oil furnaces are designed to deliver greater fuel economy than older furnaces.

Heat Pumps

Hovland's also offers Lennox heat pumps to provide an energy efficient heating and cooling option. A heat pump operates like a central air conditioner in the summer but will also heat your home when the weather is cooler. In the summer, a heat pump collects excess heat from your home and transfers it outdoors. In the fall, when temperatures begin to fall, it extracts heat from the outdoor air and transfers it inside to circulate and warm your home. In Wisconsin, a heat pump is typically installed with a gas furnace, due to our extreme winter temperatures.

Air Conditioners

We also offer a full line of Lennox air conditioning equipment that uses the chlorine-free R410a refrigerant, a more environmentally-friendly alternative to the formerly used R-22 refrigerant. This refrigerant meets the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) newest, most stringent environmental guidelines.

These products are designed to work with your heating and cooling system to deliver cleaner, fresher air throughout your home.


Resources / FAQ's

Carbon Monoxide

What is carbon monoxide?

Carbon monoxide, or CO, is an odorless, colorless gas that can cause sudden illness and death. Carbon monoxide is produced by burning fuel. Therefore, any fuel-burning appliance in your home is a potential CO source. When cooking or heating appliances are kept in good working order, they produce little CO. Improperly operating appliances can produce fatal CO concentrations in your home.

Where is CO found?

CO is found in combustion fumes, such as those produced by cars and trucks, small gasoline engines, stoves, lanterns, burning charcoal and wood, and gas ranges and heating systems. CO from these sources can build up in enclosed or semi-enclosed spaces. People and animals in these spaces can be poisoned by breathing it.

What are the symptoms of CO poisoning?

The most common symptoms of CO poisoning are headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, chest pain, and confusion. High levels of CO ingestion can cause loss of consciousness and death. Unless suspected, CO poisoning can be difficult to diagnose because the symptoms mimic other illnesses. People who are sleeping or intoxicated can die from CO poisoning before ever experiencing symptoms.

How does CO poisoning work?

When CO is introduced to the bloodstream through the lungs, it is accepted in place of oxygen at a rate of 300:1 and literally suffocates its victim. When there is a lot of CO in the air, oxygen in the blood is replaced with CO, resulting in damaged tissue or even death.

Who is at risk from CO poisoning?

All people and animals are at risk for CO poisoning. Certain groups — unborn babies, infants, and people with chronic heart disease, anemia, or respiratory problems — are more susceptible to its effects. Each year, more than 400 Americans die from unintentional CO poisoning.

What should you do?

Proper installation, operation, and maintenance of fuel-burning appliances in the home is the most important factor in reducing the risk of CO poisoning. Make sure appliances are installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions and the local codes. Most appliances should be installed by professionals.

  • Always follow the appliance manufacturer’s directions for safe operation.
  • Have the heating system (including chimneys and vents) inspected and serviced annually by a trained service technician.
  • Examine vents and chimneys regularly for improper connections, visible cracks, rust or stains.
  • Look for problems that could indicate improper appliance operations: Decreased hot water supply, furnace unable to heat house or runs continuously, sooting, especially on appliances and vents, an unfamiliar or burning odor or increased moisture inside of windows.
  • Operate portable generators outdoors and away from open doors, windows, and vents that could allow CO to come indoors.

In addition, install battery-operated CO alarms or plug-in CO alarms with battery back-up in your home. Every home should have a CO alarm in the hallway near the bedrooms in each separate sleeping area. The CO alarms should be certified to the requirements of the most recent UL, IAS, or CSA standard for CO alarms. Test your CO alarms frequently and replace dead batteries. A CO alarm can provide added protection, but is no substitute for proper installation, use and upkeep of appliances that are potential CO sources.

Home Comfort Tips

Follow these helpful tips to make the most efficient use of your heating and cooling equipment and keep your home a comfortable temperature.

  • Keep furniture and carpeting away from grills and ductwork. If you block your system’s ability to deliver air, you rob yourself of the heating or cooling necessary to keep your home comfortable.
  • On hot summer days, keep south and west-facing drapes, shades or blinds drawn in the afternoon. Keeping the sun out will keep your home cooler.
  • Run your dishwasher, washing machine and dryer in the cooler evening hours during the summer.
  • Keep your blower running continuously – it helps to keep the air circulating and maintains a more even temperature.
  • Don’t overrun an exhaust fan. Doing so pulls conditioned air out of your home.
  • DO NOT turn off your air conditioning unit when you go on summer vacation. Instead, set your thermostat between 80° and 85° to keep air circulating in your home. High temperatures and humidity can damage your home and your health by causing wallpaper to peel, floorboards to warp, and mold and fungus to form in bathrooms, on furniture and in your ductwork.
  • Use a programmable thermostat. This allows you to heat or cool your home only when needed.
  • Zone your heating and cooling system. If you spend most of your time in one part of your home or if different people in your home want the temperature at different settings, zoning can help you be more comfortable and save money on your utility bills.
  • Keep supply and return registers throughout the house free of dust, dirt and pet hair by vacuuming them at least once a year.
  • In winter months, set ceiling fans at the slowest speed and reverse the rotation in order to gently push warm air down from the ceiling without generating a breeze.
  • Listen for odd sounds when your heating or cooling system kicks in. If you hear anything unusual, try HVAC troubleshooting and then get in touch with Hovland’s so you can head off furnace problems before they become more serious.
  • Have your heating and cooling system checked regularly with preventative HVAC maintenance by Hovland’s. Your equipment works more efficiently when it is clean and running properly.
