  • Programmable Thermostat

Programmable thermostats are designed to keep your home nice and cozy when you’re in and not waste energy when you’re out. They also allow you to program and pre-set separate temperatures for the various seasons of the year. Additionally they can also be set to coincide with your daily living, working, and sleeping schedules.

  • Zoning System

Zone heating and cooling is about controlling the temperatures of the various rooms within your home. It can be very frustrating having some rooms too hot, some rooms too cold and other rooms just right. With residential zoning, you can now even out the temperatures in different rooms or sections of your home. Many homes have a greater need for residential zoning:

  • Multiple levels
  • Large open areas
  • Sprawling layout
  • Finished basement/attic
  • Air Conditioner

When needing a new Air Conditioner, here's a few things to consider:

  • Home Size
  • Load Calculation
  • Duct Inspection
  • System Features
  • Comfort Enhancements
  • Payment Options
  • Air Handler

The air handler works in conjunction with the heat pump or air conditioner to condition and circulate the air in your home. The typical system has the air handler inside the home with a heat pump or air conditioning unit outside the home. In the summer the air handler conditions and circulates cool air, while in the winter it conditions and circulates warm air.

  • Heat Pump

A heat pump is used not only to heat your home in the winter but also to cool your home in the summer. It does not use an electrical element or burn fuel to produce heat, but uses the same principle as a refrigerator and air conditioner, which is the Freon evaporation cycle. A heat pump system combined with a natural gas or propane furnace allows you to switch to the cheapest heat source depending on the market prices.

  • Ductless System

If your home does not already have forced air ducts a ductless system may be the unique solution for central air conditioning for your home. In a ductless system there is usually one outdoor unit serving multiple indoor units mounted throughout the home. Refrigerant is piped from the outdoor unit through small, insulated refrigerant lines to the individual indoor units. Cool air is blown into the rooms by a fan in the individual units. Since the refrigerant lines are small, installation is generally easier than installation of a full system with new ductwork. Although some systems provide heating and cooling, ductless mini-split systems are usually installed for cooling and are quite efficient.
