Home comfort is more than cool air in the summer and warm air in the winter. In fact, itís more than just controlling the temperature inside your house. Home comfort is the consistent quality of your total indoor environment. In other words, day in and day out, year after year, is your home as comfortable as it could, and should be? That may be a hard question to answer, so here are a few things to think about. Do you have a home comfort system that dehumidifies as it cools? Is your indoor air clean and contaminant-free? Is your system quiet and energy efficient? Does it always work reliably when you need it the most? Is every room in your home comfortable, or are some rooms unbearable depending on the season?

What Size System Do I Need?
Why The Right Size System Is So Important.
A system that is too large will cool or heat your house quickly, but you still may not feel comfortable. That's because it will satisfy the thermostat before it can adequately remove sufficient moisture from the air - which will in summer feel stickier than it should be. And, the stress of short-cycling (too many starts and stops) will shorten the life of your equipment and increase your heating and cooling bills. On the other hand, a system that is too small just cannot get the job done. The air conditioner will run constantly in the summer and the furnace will do the same in winter. Give us a call and we will determine the correct system size needed for your home by doing a room by room load calculation. This heat loss/heat gain analysis is the best indicator of the correct system size.
