Our HVAC Products
We do much more than just heating and cooling. Take a look at all the products we offer and see what we can do for you!
A traditional home comfort system has two parts: an indoor unit, such as a furnace or air handler, and an outdoor unit. An air conditioner is the outdoor unit that cools air and sends it to the indoor unit for circulation through your home. Indoor and outdoor units are designed to work together. When the air conditioner is properly matched with a furnace or air handler, you get maximum efficiency and longer system life.
Furnaces heat and circulate warm air in the winter. Furnace heating ability is measured with an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) percentage. A higher AFUE percentage indicates a more efficient furnace.
High-Efficiency Heat Pumps
A split system heat pump keeps homes comfortable all year long. In summer, it draws heat out of your home to cool it. In the winter, it draws heat from outside air into your home to warm it.
Packaged Heating and Cooling Systems
In a packaged system, all equipment is built into an outdoor unit, usually on a concrete slab or other platform. The “package” that gives it its name provides central air conditioning during the summer and heat in colder months.
Thermostats are extremely important because they are your interface and control system for your heating and air conditioning equipment. This is the device that will give you the information on what the equipment is doing, when it needs to be serviced, and allows you to set the exact temperature and humidity you want to maintain in your home.
We highly recommend that you purchase a thermostat that is extremely easy to use, with a large backlit display that you can see clearly day and night. The display should show not only the room temperature but also your set-point (desired temperature), the humidity and the status of the equipment.
Zoning allows you to have different temperatures in each room or area of your house. You can have one temperature in the kitchen, another temperature in the family room, another temperature in your bedroom, etc. Not only does this provide much more comfort but it can save you up to 20% per year in your annual operating costs because you don’t overheat or overcool the areas that are unoccupied. The operating cost savings could be the equivalent to that of going from a 13 SEER air conditioning system to a 15 SEER system.
Zoning is getting more popular all the time as people demand to be more comfortable as in most new luxury cars now you have at least two zones, one for the passenger and one for the driver.
Zoning uses dampers in the duct work that open and close to provide heated or cooled air to different parts of the house. Each area has its own thermostat and its own control. It can maintain whatever temperature you like in each one of the different areas.
The cost of zoning varies depending on how difficult it is to get to the duct work to install the controls. We can give you an exact cost after we survey your duct work system.
A traditional home comfort system has two parts: an outdoor unit, such as an air conditioner or heat pump, and an indoor unit. The air handler is the indoor unit that circulates cool air through your home in the summer and warm air in the winter. The indoor and outdoor units are designed to work together. Air handlers supply conditioned air evenly throughout your home, when used in place of a furnace, with either an air conditioning or heat pump system.
Dehumidification can be very important if you live in areas of high humidity. High humidity in cooler temperatures gives you a wet clammy feeling and in warmer temperatures causes a wet sticky feeling and causes perspiration to stay on your body and soak in to you clothes rather than evaporate.
High humidity can also cause mold and mildew throughout the house and even ruin very expensive clothes, fabrics, paintings and wall coverings. All air-conditioning units take out some humidity when they are running but in very humid areas this is not enough and you need a dehumidifying system. The most cost effective way in both first cost and operating cost is to install our Affinity System with the T-1900 dehumidifying thermostat.
This system can take out up to 15 times more water from the air than a standard system with very little operating cost penalty.
A second way is to put in a special self-contained dehumidifying system. This is an additional system that works in conjunction with your Affinity system, but takes even more humidity out of the air and works even when the air conditioning system is not operating. Of course, since this is a self contained unit, the first cost is greater and the operating cost in increased.
Humidity is very important in areas which are dry. Symptoms of dry climates are dry skin and eyes, nose bleed, static electricity (clothes clinging to you, hair clinging to your comb or brush and electric shock when you touch a metal object). All of these can be cured by raising the Humidity in you home which can be accomplished with a Humidifier connected to your Air-conditioning system and controlled by a T-1900 thermostat.
Now you can be sure your home’s air is clear of dust, pollen, fungi, smoke and other particles too small to see. It’s easy with a HEPA Electronic and Media Air Cleaner. These cleaners provide stepped-up filtration, and are more effective than your furnace or air conditioner alone. In fact, these cleaners can remove up to 94% of the particles that pass through your home’s system. And since these pollutants can build up as film on walls and furniture, this is performance you’ll feel and see.
UV Air Purifiers
You can protect your home and your family from allergy-causing mold with our selection of air purifiers. These ultraviolet air treatment systems kill mold that would grow in the cool, damp interiors of your air conditioning system. This is the same technology that’s long been used by water treatment facilities, adapted for safe, efficient home air purifiers.
On the hottest days of summer and the coldest days of winter, you want your home sealed tight for energy efficiency. But you don’t want to sacrifice the benefits of fresh air. With a ventilation system, you don’t have to. Whether you use an energy recovery ventilator for warm climates or the heat recovery ventilator for cooler regions, you can trust these air exchangers to quietly bring in fresh, clean air from the outside and remove stale inside air, along with dust and other particle buildup.
A traditional home comfort system has two parts: an outdoor unit, such as an air conditioner or heat pump, and an indoor unit, such as a furnace or air handler. The evaporator coil is a series of piping connected to a furnace or air handler that blows indoor air across it, causing the coil to absorb heat from the air. The cooled air is then delivered to the house through ducting. The refrigerant then flows back to the compressor where the cycle starts over again.
