Should I Repair or Replace My Existing System?

It’s better to replace your current home comfort system if the repairs cost 30% of a new purchase. Also, it’s ideal to replace old, less-efficient systems when the utility bills have increased by 50%.

How Much Can I Save with Brand-New Equipment?

In most homes, air conditioning and heating units consume about 44% of the energy bill. Today, systems that are qualified by ENERGY STAR® are up to 60% more efficient than 10-year-old equipment.

Is It Really Necessary to Install a Central HVAC System?

For new home construction or remodelling projects, a central home comfort system is recommended for superior indoor air quality and humidity control.

What Is the Best Thermostat for My System?

To ensure that your HVAC equipment provides accurate, reliable, energy-saving performance, look for a programmable thermostat. For additional savings and convenience, purchase our Residential Communicating Control with Wi-Fi support. This unit works with mobile devices, allowing you to program your system wherever you are.

How Can I Be Sure That I Am Selecting the Right Contractor?

Choose a contractor that is associated with a recognized brand. You can feel confident when you work with a company that is backed by the products and training resources of a major manufacturer.

How Do I Select the Ideal Heating or Cooling System?

Get advice from the experts. Contractors can perform a load calculation and analyze your energy consumption to determine the operating costs. You can then request a customized system based on your requirements.

Can I Reuse Any of the Components From My Existing System?

Keep in mind that every system is different. Ask your contractor to do a thorough inspection of your electrical equipment, ductwork, and other related components. Afterward, your contractor will give a rundown of the components you need to replace and what you can keep.

How Complicated Is It to Install a New System?

It depends on the house and the system. Air conditioners and gas furnaces need various components. However, the common denominator is the ductwork, which must be properly sized and zoned for optimal performance. Your contractor can evaluate your current system and tell how simple a new installation can be.

What Does the Air Handler Do for My System?

This unit circulates conditioned air throughout your home. You can combine air handlers with other accessories to filter, humidify, or dehumidify the air stream as you see fit.

What Can I Do to Improve My Home's Indoor Air Quality?

Indoor air can sometimes be 5 – 100 times more polluted than outdoor air. Additions, such as humidifiers, dehumidifiers, ventilation systems, UV lights, and air filters, can dramatically improve your home’s indoor air quality.
