Furnaces come typically as gas, electric or oil powered and provide warm air in the winter. Furnace heating ability is measured with an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) percentage. Remember, a higher AFUE percentage indicates a more efficient furnace.
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. Air conditioning and cooling efficiency is measured using a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER). A higher SEER means higher energy efficiency. The latest standard for SEER is 13 (beginning January 2006).
Indoor Air Quality
Today, homes are sealed more tightly to conserve energy. Unfortunately, this seals in mold, pollen, bacteria and other pollutants. Since the EPA ranks indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health, many homeowners are concerned. Ventilation systems, air treatment systems, air cleaners and even humidifiers can help improve air quality for a total comfort solution.
Thermostats & Zoning
Thermostats are your interface and control system for your HVAC equipment. They come in many shapes and sizes with different features from basic temperature control to 7-day programming, wireless access and more. Additionally, thermostats offer other options such as controlling humidity levels (when you have the correct HVAC components installed). Zoning systems give the ability to control separate areas to keep temperatures even. High ceilings, two-level entrances, heat from the sun - these are just a few of the things that can cause uneven temperatures in your home or office.
In a packaged system, all equipment is built into an outdoor unit, usually on a concrete slab or other platform. These systems can serve just one purpose - such as cooling - or they can offer a complete "package" by providing cooling and heating. The packaged air systems we offer come as both gas and electric. The efficiency of packaged systems are rated using SEER (for cooling efficiency), AFUE% (for gas heating efficiency) and HSPF (for heat pump efficiency). Ductwork is required to transfer the heated or cooled air throughout the home.
Rooftop units, split systems, air handlers, commercial zoning, indoor air quality - take all the flexibilty you have on the residential level and apply that to your business location. Our commercial products and skill sets are specialized and unsurpassed, guaranteeing the best commercial comfort control for your business.
Tankless Water Systems
With traditional water heaters you are paying for hot water 24 hours a day as the heat and reheat cycle is non-stop. Tankless water heaters put an end to this. Tankless water heaters deliver an endless flow of consistent hot water that does not fluctuate so you'll never end with a cold shower, and you'll only pay for hot water when you use it. Additionally, tankless water systems save valuable space in your home.
Fan & Evaporator Coils
Fan coils heat air in your forced air heating system. Evaporator coils with the forced cooling system to condition air for circulating into your home. One problem that has plagued air conditioning companies for a long time is coil failures due to corrosion. The coils we recommend have tin plating which allows the continued use of copper coils as they are superior for heat transfer, but the tin significantly reduces the corrosive impact of pollutants.
