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