Bigger isn’t always better; its performance and efficiency that count. Before purchasing a replacement system you should always make sure your system is sized properly to match your needs and budget. Our Comfort Advisor will thoroughly assess your home, perform load calculations and talk to you about your comfort requirements to determine the proper size, and make the appropriate recommendation. According to the International Building Code, the only way to properly size residential equipment is a Manual J Load Calculation. Our highly trained Comfort Advisors will always do this prior to recommending a size of equipment – it’s the law! Ask about our no cost, no obligation proposals if you think your HVAC equipment is the wrong size.
The cause may be your duct system. The Department Of Energy states that the typical duct system loses an astounding 25% to 40% of the energy put out by the central furnace, heat pump or air conditioner. In addition to putting a strain on your monthly budget, this energy waste causes temperature discomfort. If the conditioned air is leaking out of the ducts, it is not getting to where it’s needed and costing you money. Have your duct system examined by a professional to look for leaks, tears or the need for a new duct system.
We understand that living in Maryland with the change of seasons comes with a fair dose of allergens. We have a variety of options to bring relief. With a high efficiency air cleaner, you can remove up to 99% of the pollen and spores that find their way into the home. There is also a great reduction in household dust, dirt, smoke, and other air pollutants. Your indoor air will become cleaner and fresher while reducing the allergens and dust that circulate throughout the house. With a whole house humidifier, you can relieve the irritating discomfort of dry indoor air. The humidifier reduces itchy skin, scratchy throats, static electricity, and damage to your furnishings and woodwork. Since humid air feels warmer than dry air, you do not have to set the thermostat as high to feel the comfort you want. A lower thermostat setting will reduce the costs of your energy bill.
