According to CW Service Pros – There’s A New Reason To Upgrade Your Heating and Cooling System Sooner Than 2023

LEWISVILLE, Texas -- In 2023, the HVAC industry is expected to experience major price increases in the production of new heating and cooling systems due to higher standards in SEER rating systems* taking effect in the new year. Consumers can benefit now by purchasing new HVAC systems before the close of 2022 while SEER standards remain at lower ratings, says CW Service Pros.

CW Service Pros Office Manager Karen Edmonds states, "There's a price hike coming on heating and cooling (HVAC) equipment January 2023. If your HVAC system is on the older side or you are considering replacing it soon, replacing it now could save you a lot of money."

She also stated that both by purchasing and installing a new system before the price increase and by the savings offered - "you will benefit from higher efficiency equipment."


The U.S. Department of Energy uses SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) ratings to evaluate heating and cooling equipment efficiency. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient the system is. These ratings ensure all systems meet minimum standards of effectiveness and efficiency. They also help consumers compare and evaluate different systems and make good purchasing decisions.

The Department of Energy has revised its SEER guidelines for 2023 and a 20 SEER system is now considered a 19.2 SEER2 system. As of January 2023, Texas will be phasing out low SEER equipment to establish a higher efficiency standard in both new construction and existing homes. The minimum energy-efficiency standards are being raised for all cooling and heating systems. At the same time, a new SEER ratings system, called SEER2, will go into effect. The new SEER2 system uses different testing conditions and is a more accurate way to evaluate HVAC efficiency.

Due to the coming changes according to Karen Edmonds, "HVAC manufacturers are redesigning HVAC components to meet the new SEER2 requirements. As a result, prices are said to increase on new HVAC systems and components as of January 2023 as much as 30%."

Karen continues, "Once the new regulations go into effect, any units that don't meet the new requirements can't be sold or installed. It is against the federal law to sell or install this equipment after the New Year."


There is another great reason to upgrade now according to Karen, especially if your current HVAC system is older than 10 years or out of warranty. Replacing an old system won't just save you from having to pay more upfront; over time, it'll also save you money because new HVAC systems cost less to operate.

New HVAC models are much more energy-efficient than older ones. They use less energy and provide more heating and cooling power, even compared to models that are only 5 to 10 years old.

If you've been planning to upgrade or replace your current HVAC system in the near future, there are solid reasons to go ahead and get it done before the end of 2022.

Dallas Roofing Company Expands into Solar offering Solar PV Roofing and Power Backup Systems

DALLAS, Texas -- The new U.S. Climate bill offers generous incentives, making now an ideal time to go solar expanding the tax credit from 26 percent to 30 percent. Rising energy costs and a struggling Texas power grid are causing many homeowners to look for energy saving options and batteries to power their homes during outages. That's why KPost, a leading Dallas roofing and waterproofing company, is excited to announce that it's recently expanding its service offerings to install Tesla solar roof systems and Powerwall.

Tesla solar roofs take existing roofs and essentially turn them into clean energy machines that are not only practical, but also add a superior aesthetic to your roof. These roofs come with a class A-fire rating, 25-year warranty and a visually-modern appeal while tested to withstand up to 166 mph winds and 1.75" hail.

And, with a true BIVP built-in photovoltaic, if one panel breaks, only that one needs to be found and repaired. The rest will continue to work so there's no wasted energy or downtime. It's a plug and play design.

These Tesla solar roof systems are a win-win for homeowners as they are low-maintenance, save money on electricity and have the added benefit of increasing a home's value. In some cases, a utility will credit homeowners for energy sent to the power grid, which can be applied towards future utility bills. This billing mechanism is called net energy metering (NEM).

Pairing the Tesla solar roof with Powerwall is becoming a preferred system for Texas residents as the power grid is strained due to excessive temperatures and population growth. The Powerwall is an integrated battery system that stores your solar energy for backup protection, so when the grid goes down, power stays on. The system detects outages and automatically recharges with sunlight to keep appliances running for days.

"Rising energy costs have many homeowners interested in installing traditional solar panels on their homes," Matthew Jaynes, vice President of residential, says. "Many solar systems are installed on asphalt shingle roofs which are very susceptible to hail damage and only last about 10-15 years in Texas while the solar panels are expected to last 25 years. The Tesla Solar Roof combines a long-lasting roof system with PV panels saving homeowners over the short and long term. We're looking forward to what the future holds in the solar industry."

About KPost:

KPost Roofing & Waterproofing, a 400+ employee company, is the official Roofing & Waterproofing Partner of the Dallas Cowboys. They have been protecting roofs in the DFW Metroplex for more than 18 years, providing customers with safety, quality and value with each roof installation or repair.

Virginia’s Leader in Lightning Protection Celebrates 75th Anniversary with Community Event to Support Landmark Fire Prevention Week Campaign

RICHMOND, Va. -- Two champions of fire prevention and safety are celebrating anniversary milestones this October. Loehr Lightning Protection Co., Virginia's leader in lightning protection system (LPS) services since 1947, is teaming up with the National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA) to support the 100th anniversary of Fire Prevention Week™ (FPW) and celebrate its own 75th company anniversary with a community event at the Hazen Memorial Library, in historic Bon Air, Va., on Thursday, October 6, from 3 to 7 p.m.

"Lightning is the weather threat that affects most people in most parts of our state and country, and it's also a leading fire threat," said Kimberly Loehr, president at Loehr Lightning Protection Co. and member of the National Lightning Safety Council. "A lightning strike can pack over 300 million volts of power-mega electricity that can ignite a devastating home or structural fire in seconds."

While safety standard-compliant lightning protection systems (LPS) can provide a safe and effective grounding network to protect structures from the lightning threat, most property owners aren't aware of their availability.

According to experts at the Lightning Protection Institute, the NFPA 780 Standard for the Installation of Lightning Protection Systems is recognized as the most comprehensive resource for reducing lightning risks at U.S. properties. The NFPA regularly reviews LPS methods and materials through its code process to make sure that lightning protection methods and materials keep pace with our ever-changing building technology.

This year's FPW campaign, "Fire won't wait. Plan your escape™" seeks to educate the public about simple, but important actions for staying safe in the event of a home fire.

"Today's homes burn faster than ever. You may have as little as two minutes (or even less time) to safely escape a home fire from the time the smoke alarm sounds," said Lorraine Carli, vice president of Outreach and Advocacy at NFPA.

"Lightning strikes that occur in the darkness of night can be especially difficult to recognize and detect," said Loehr. "Even in the light of day, lightning fires aren't always visible in their initial stages and it's not unusual for these blazes to originate in enclosed spaces like the attic, basement or electrical panels."

NFPA's Fire Prevention campaign is believed to be the longest running public health and safety observance on record. Since 1922, the country has seen huge progress in the fire safety movement with the construction of fire-resistant buildings and improvements in fire suppression techniques.

"Fire Prevention Month is a good time to remind property owners about a very common, very destructive, yet little understood fire risk," added Loehr, who is a NFPA Building Fire Safety Systems section member and longtime supporter of the organization's October campaign. "Partnering with fire safety officials is just one of the ways we've helped build lightning safe communities throughout the years."

To find out more about Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 9-15) programs and activities in Bon Air, Va. please contact Chesterfield Fire and EMS. For more information about Fire Prevention Week and fire prevention in general, visit and


Since 1947, Loehr Lightning Protection Co. has served as Virginia's leader in lightning protection system design, installation and consultation to protect lives, property and assets from lightning's deadly and destructive force. A family-owned women-owned and operated SWaM business, it is LLP's priority to continue its reputation as "A Striking Difference" in the lightning protection industry for many years to come.

Chase Doors Celebrates 90 Year Anniversary with Launch of National Traffic Door Day on September 28

CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Chase Industries, Inc., founded by Chase Blum in 1932, began its operation as an insulated walk-in cooler and specialty refrigeration equipment manufacturer. Ninety years later, Chase Doors is the world's oldest, largest, and most progressive manufacturer of double-acting impact traffic doors and specialty doors. Chase Doors is part of the Senneca Holdings family of brands.

To celebrate this milestone, the National Archives has officially designated September 28 as National Traffic Door Day. This day will celebrate Chase and Eliason traffic doors and the businesses that use them to keep customers and employees safe.

Traffic doors create an efficient traffic flow in restaurants, retail and industrial spaces and help provide peace, tranquility, and a stylish separation solution where folks dine and shop so they can enjoy the environment and company around them. They add value and efficiency to applications with multi-directional openings where visual, sound, and environmental barriers are required. These doors are extremely durable and capable of withstanding the wear and tear associated with sales-to-back room and walk-in cooler openings in high volume establishments. Known for their long-term value, they are ideal for use in supermarkets, retail establishments, institutions, industries, restaurants, and food service operations.

You can celebrate this day by taking a selfie in front of a traffic door at your favorite restaurant, retail store, etc., and posting to social media platforms, using #NationalTrafficDoorDay.

At Chase and Eliason, safety is number one. Please be sure to follow all safety protocols when capturing your selfie. You can also support restaurants and businesses that have traffic doors at their locations and thank the service industry individuals that use our doors.

"This day is a celebration of all the employees and customers who have produced and enjoyed our beautiful and protective traffic doors over the past 90 years. We thank all for their dedication and loyalty to Senneca," said Clark Hale, Chief Executive Officer, Senneca Holdings.

"Many companies do not survive longer than 5 years and even less exist for more than 20 years. 90 years of supplying retail, restaurant, and industrial industries with innovative solutions for their openings is how Chase Doors has thrived. Thank you to all our employees and industry partners on achieving this significant milestone," said Hal Shapiro, SVP, Sales and Marketing.

"We are proud to be the industry leader of traffic door solutions for our customers for 90 years. Protecting our customer's assets by providing top quality products is a top priority at Chase/Eliason. We understand the importance of our product in restaurants, retail and industrial spaces and will continue to listen to our customers and work with them to develop a product that meets their needs. Happy National Traffic Door Day!" said Jason Horn, Director of Operations.

"I have had the pleasure of being associated with Chase for more than thirty-five of the company's first 90 years. The partnerships developed over the years with our customers have fueled our growth these first 90 years and will remain key to sustaining our success in the future. We thank all the customers who have made these first 90 years possible," said Mike Evans, Vice President of National Sales Accounts.

"I have had the honor of representing the Chase/ Senneca products for thirty-five plus years. This company has always represented not only great products, but great people!" said Glenn Oltmanns, Senior Vice President, OEM Account Sales.

"Chase Doors is observing 90 years of great customers, people, and products. Without having the best of all three we would not have had the longevity that we celebrate. Thank you to our employees - Your creativity, hard work and dedication inspire us. Thank you to our customers - Your support, loyalty and satisfaction drive and motivate us to continuously improve. I look forward to our continued success and I am honored to be part of such a wonderful team," said Rick Paterni, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management.
