HOME COMFORT SYSTEM - SPLIT AIR CONDITIONERS
HOW IT WORKS
1. Furnace - component that circuates air and adds heat to the air by burning gas.
2. Coil - transfers interior heat into the refrigerant lines and moves that heat outdoors.
3. Condenser - removes heat from the house.
4. Supply Air - Sends into rooms after being heated or cooled.
5. Refrigerant Lines - medium by which heat is transfered from one place to another.
6 Return Air- returns air into the heating and cooling system.
7. Humidifier - device that increase humidity.
8. Air Cleaner - removes solid particulate matter such as dust, polen, mold, and bacteria from the air depending on the type of filter and efficiency level.
CHOOSING A CONTRACTOR
Why should I hire a licensed & bonded contractor?
While you're checking to see if companies are insured and bonded, don't forget to inquire about whether the contractor's particular trade requires a license. States often require specific licenses for particular trades, such as electrician, plumber or HVAC.
Bonding protects the consumer if the contractor fails to complete a job, doesn't pay for permits, or fails to meet other financial obligations, such as paying for supplies or subcontractors or covering damage that worker's cause to your property.
Why pull permits?
Building permits are required for most construction or remodeling projects, in order to ensure the safety of the work and it's compliance with building, construction, and zoning codes.
Why is proper installation important to my home's HVAC system?
Proper installation is the single most importnat factor of your new system's longevity and efficiency. An improperly installed system can leaf to early system failures and higher energy consumption.
Does a bigger or smaller heating or cooling offer better performance?
No. Oversized equipment can use up to 9% more energy and undersized systems do not generate enough airflow to fill your home. A properly sized system allows for maximum unit lifespan.
What is the difference between gas/electric & a heat pump system?
A gas/electric system uses electricity to cool your home and gas and electricity to heat it; whereas a heat pump uses only electricity to both heat and cool your home.
Should i repair or replace?
If your system is newer and under warranty we recommend repairing it. If your system is older, it is likely reaching the end of its lifespan. Repairing it may not be the best option and a newer system will likey be much more energy efficient.
Why should I upgrade my air vents?
Upgrading to bar-type registers can increase airflow and decrease the pressure buildup on the system thereby extending the life of the equipment.
INDOOR AIR QUALITY (IAQ)
What does MERV mean?
MERV stands for minimum efficiency reporting value and signifies how eefective a filter is at removing particles from the air. The higher the MERV the smaller the particle the filter can remove from the air.
Should I purchse a whole home humidifier?
A whole home humidifier can be a great way to increase the humidity level in your home. Proper humidity levels are important as they reduce static electricity, dry skin, chapped lips and scratchy throats.
What is the proper indoor humidity level?
Generally, a good range is 40-50% humidity.
What is fresh air ventilation system?
Fresh air ventilation systems remove stale air from your home and bring in freah air automatically. These systems reduce carbon monoxide (CO), formaldehyde and help remove odors from the home.
Should my ductwork be upgraded?
There are several factors that determine if your ductwork needs to be upgraded. If the ductwork is damaged and/or leaking, adding insulation will reduce the amount of heating or cooling loss in your attic lowering your overall energy consumption.
Should I have my air ducts cleaned?
We can inspect your ductwork and make a recommendation on whether or not it needs to be cleaned.
What do UV lights do?
They are designed to be installed in the coil and are intended to reduce old and bacteria build up on the coil.
What rebates are available?
Rebates offered vary by region. Be sure to check with your local utility companies for current offers.
How can I reduce my energy bill?
Air conditioners with a higher SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings will consume less power. Systems with a higher AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) will cost less to heat your home in the winter.
Sealed ductwork prevents air leaks. The national average suggests, most US homes waste up to 35% of their cooling costs through leaking ducts. This dissipated airflow equals $35 wasted for every $100 spent.
Why is there no set price?
Every home has different requirements as to what needs to be done to provide the ultimate level of comfort.
How does a variable-speed furnace benefit me?
Variable speed furnaces have many benefits. Just like your car, it is able to speed up or slow down whenever needed instead of running at full speed all the time. Variable speed furnaces provide the ultimate in energy savings and noise reduction. Variable speed furnaces are an important choice when you are looking to pair your system with indoor air quality (IAQ) products as they allow the furnace an energy efficient way to circulate the air in your home through the air cleaning products.
How does a two-stage furnace work?
Two-stage heating means the furnace has two levels of heat output: high for cold winter days and low for milder days. Since the low setting is adequate to meet household heating demands 80% of the time, a two-stage unit runs for longer periods and provides more even heat distribution.
Can I move my air conditioner to a different location?
Most likely your air conditioner can be moved to a more convenient location.
How long does an install take?
Each job varies based on how complex it is, but generally it takes one to two days to complete a system replacement.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO MAINTAIN MY AIR CONDITIONER AND FURNACE WITH A SERVICE AGREEMENT?
Service agreements help extend the life span of a heating and air conditioning system by ensuring it runs at maximum efficiency. A typical service agreement includes two visits per year. One tune-up in the springtime prepares your air conditioning system for the summer, and one in the fall prepares your heater for the winter. Properly maintaining your system can have a significant impact on your utility bills and the life of your system. Ask for details about the service agreement options available to you.
A maintenance agreement provides peace of mind since your system will be properly serviced on schedule.

LOWER YOUR ENERGY BILLS WITH A NEW HIGH EFFICIENCY SYSTEM
COOL YOUR HOME FOR LESS
Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is the rate by which all air conditioning and heat pump energy efficiently is measured. In the world of cooling, the higher the SEER, the better the efficiency and the lower your energy bills.
HEAT YOUR HOME FOR LESS
Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) measures the amount of heat actually delivered to your house compared to the amount of fuel supplied to the furnace. For example, a furnace that has an 80% AFUE rating converts 80% of the fuel to heat - the other 20% is vented out to your roof as wasted money. The higher the AFUE rating, the better the energy efficiency and the less money you waste.
Most systems 15 years or older are rated around 65% AFUE. Upgrading to a Einstein modulating furnace rated at 97% AFUE can save around $1,694 a year on energy costs. And of course, as the cost of natural gas rises, you'll save even more.
