size system should I have installed?

Is a bigger furnace or air conditioner better?
A No it is not. Bigger is not always better in
the HVAC industry. A larger air conditioner uses more
electricity and costs more to purchase, install and
upkeep. A properly sized unit will provide the most
efficient energy use and most comfort in your home. When
buying a home comfort system, selecting the right size
is crucial. For instance, an air conditioner that is too
large will cool your home quickly but you still may not
feel comfortable. It will satisfy the thermostat before
it can remove sufficient moisture from the air. However,
a system that is too small just cannot get the job done.
We can help determine what size is right for you.

Q What are the benefits
of a programmable thermostat?
A A Programmable thermostat is programmed for
when you leave your house and then return home. The
thermostat turns of the furnace during the hours you are
not home so that energy is not used to keep the house
warm while you are at work. The thermostat will then
turn back on 30 minutes before you come home so your
house is at the perfect temperature when you are home.
These thermostats save up to 15% on your energy bills
during the winter and 10% in the summer.
Q Why are furnaces and
air conditioners so noisy?
A They are not noisy if you install new
components in your system. Old units were not built with
the quality materials that are used today. Some
manufacturers install sound insulators on the compressor
as well as a weather guard top that not only reduces
noise but increases the life of the unit by not letting
debris get into the system.
Q When I am on vacation
should I turn off my furnace to save energy?
A Common settings is 85 degrees in the summer if
you have air conditioning and 60 in the winter if you
will be gone for a couple of days. These settings will
keep most plants alive and will keep pipes from freezing
and bursting in the winter.
Q Do I run any risk by
accepting the lowest bid?
A YES! If a bid comes in 5-10% lower than other
companies it is because they
may well be using inferior products,
do not do a quality installation or are leaving
something out of their bid. Many companies will not pay
for permits or schedule the inspector to come to your
house. We do all the work for you, you just need to
relax and enjoy the comfort and energy efficiency of
your new system.
