Ah, fall! The season of football, pumpkin-spiced lattes, colorful leaves, and your home’s warm, comforting embrace as the evenings grow crisp. However, along with the serene beauty comes the reality of energy bills that could send shivers down your spine. But fear not! With an energy-efficient heating system, you can enjoy the ambiance of autumn without burning a hole in your pocket. Trying to figure out where to start? Contact our local experts, ready to guide you to the perfect HVAC solution for your home.
Fall in Love with Energy Efficiency
As you venture into energy efficiency, you’ll be greeted by modern HVAC systems that are nothing short of a marvel. They are brilliantly engineered with intelligent design at the helm. Smart technology such as variable speed motors and modulating gas valves form the crux of their operation, seamlessly adjusting to your home’s temperature needs. These systems operate at a capacity that matches your comfort, making them a companion of efficiency. Our friendly neighborhood technicians can provide personalized recommendations tailored to your home’s needs.
Embrace the idea of zonal heating. Picture your home as a little community where every room has its own personality. Some rooms may like it warm while others prefer it cool. Zonal heating is the gentle hand that allows you to customize temperatures in different zones of your home, ensuring energy is well-spent in occupied heating or cooling areas. It’s about giving every room what it needs to feel just right.  
Programmable thermostats are a trusted ally in energy efficiency. Imagine having a personal assistant dedicated to managing your home’s climate. A programmable thermostat does just that, adjusting the temperature based on your preferences and schedule. It ensures a warm welcome when you arrive home and is energy-saving when you are away, a tech-savvy way to manage your home’s comfort.
Tips to Reduce Energy Bills
Seal the deal. Before the cool autumn winds dance through the trees, seal all windows and doors properly to prevent drafts. It’s akin to buttoning up your coat to keep the warmth in, a simple yet effective step towards energy efficiency.
Routine maintenance is the silent hero in energy efficiency. Regular check-ups for your HVAC system are akin to taking your car for servicing; they keep everything running smoothly and efficiently. A well-maintained machine is a happy machine that’ll keep your spaces warm without gulping down energy. Learn about the benefits of our Service Club Membership.
Consider upgrading to ENERGY STAR-certified HVAC equipment. These systems are the superheroes of energy efficiency, saving the planet and your wallet one kilowatt at a time. Their ability in energy conservation is unmatched, offering you a cozy home without skyrocketing bills.
Choosing the Right HVAC System
When choosing a new HVAC system, it’s essential to remember that it’s not a one-size-fits-all scenario. The size of your home and your budget are pivotal points to consider. The concept of size is crucial here. Too small a system will struggle to keep up, while too large a system will heat your home faster than you can say “pumpkin spice,” leading to short-cycling and increased energy costs.

As you scout for a new HVAC, paying attention to the rating is wise. High Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) ratings for furnaces and good Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) ratings for air conditioners are clues to an efficient system. These ratings are a testament to a system’s efficiency, a higher number indicating a friendlier approach to your energy bills.
Finally, consult the experts. Our knowledgeable and friendly team can guide your decision, ensuring you select a system tailored to your home’s needs, so you stay toasty all season long without chilly surprises in your energy bills. This fall let’s toast to family, coziness, laughter, and a home warmed by the joys of energy efficiency.

From The Lake To The City
Our Neighbors Love Us

Daniel came right down to fix a pump that was broken on a machine and the timing… was critical, he had a very difficult task completed promptly and I was returned to productivity faster than expected. Thank you I’m very happy.

The phrase first impressions are lasting impressions rings true with Daniel VanderHyde. He rescued us one Saturday morning after we tried “fixing” our leaky shower faucet ourselves. Hoping he could not only undo what we’d done, but be able to fix it without it being a major project was our biggest concern. And he did just that! We were very impressed with the pride and care he put into his work; he was truly a professional.

Jamie & Christie H.

Daniel installed an Eternal Water Heater and we absolutely love it! He was quick and very knowledgeable about his products. The quality of his work is second to none!

Melissa K.

I highly recommend Daniel with Lake Michigan Mechanical. Not only is he super friendly but he very professional and knows his stuff. I bought a new house and of course the current water heater died within a months time of buying the house. Daniel and staff were in and within 24 hours of me noting the problem we had a new heater. Thank you so much for great work!

Theodore S.

Professional and knowledge. They did a great job identifying the problems we were having with our boiler. While other HVAC companies were telling us to replace our unit completely, they knew exactly what to fix to get us up and running, saving us thousands of dollars. I will be calling on them for future repairs I might need. Thank you, Daniel and team!!

Eva S.

We highly recommend Dan and Lake Michigan Mechanical. He provides our rental and personal properties with professional, dependable and knowledgeable service.

Duana & Bonnie W.

Satisfied Customer

Dan and company were very prompt, efficient and fixed the problem at my Mothers’ house quickly. We were very happy with their service and how quickly they could come to fix the problem. I would highly recommend them.

Sarah Z.

Daniel and the entire staff are very responsive. I have used Lake Michigan Mechanical throughout the years. They are professional and charge a fair rate. Both Nigel and Brandon did an outstanding job fixing my old A/C unit and installed the NEST thermostat. Well done gentlemen! Also, most recently installed a tank-less water heater. Once again did outstanding work by Daniel and Team!

Lauren M.

So we have to get a shout out to Lake Michigan Mechanical. They were the only ones who could come do the repair today, everyone else was like three days or more out. They were really cool and made the best out of what was a really stressful day for us!! They were really respectful of keeping our door shut when they went in/out (you would not believe how many animals of ours have gotten out due to home repair people) and they cleaned up after themselves!! So far the hot water seems to be working great!

Jessica G.

Very patient, great job educating us on the issue and explaining our different options

Amanda Z.

Daniel and Aiden did an amazingly quick job responding to and repairing my broken furnace over a weekend. Cheers Gents!

Robert D.

Very professional and efficient job done. I recommend this technician highly!
