size system should I have installed?
A The right size
system is paramount in your home. Too large and
your system will short cycle and not control
humidity correctly. Too small and it will run
continuously. We will give you a
today. We will be happy to configure just the right
system for your needs.
Is a bigger furnace or air conditioner better?
A No it is not. Bigger is not always better in the
HVAC industry. A larger air conditioner uses more
electricity and costs more to purchase, install and
upkeep. A properly sized unit will provide the most
efficient energy use and most comfort in your home.
When buying a home comfort system, selecting the
right size is crucial. For instance, an air
conditioner that is too large will cool your home
quickly but you still may not feel comfortable. It
will satisfy the thermostat before it can remove
sufficient moisture from the air. However, a system
that is too small just cannot get the job done.
Often should I change my filters?
A Check filters every two months and replace or
clean as needed.

to keep my house very cool in the summer would a new
unit help with costs?
A If you have a 15 year old unit it could be as
little as 6 SEER. Most people set their thermostat
around 78 degrees in the summer to save costs. With
a new high efficiency air conditioner you could save
as much as $600 per summer on a typical 4 ton unit

the benefits of a programmable thermostat?
A A Programmable thermostat is programmed for when
you leave your house and then return home. The
thermostat turns of the furnace during the hours you
are not home so that energy is not used to keep the
house warm while you are at work. The thermostat
will then turn back on 30 minutes before you come
home so your house is at the perfect temperature
when you are home. These thermostats save up to 15%
off on your energy bills during the winter and 10%
off in the summer.
are furnaces and air conditioners so noisy?
A They are not noisy if you install new American
Standard components in your system. Old units were
not built with the quality materials that are used
today. American Standard also installs sound
insulators on the compressor as well as a weather
guard top that not only reduces noise but increases
the life of the unit by not letting debris get into
am on vacation should I turn off my furnace to save
A Common settings are 85 degrees in the summer if
you have air conditioning and 60 in the winter if
you will be gone for a couple of days. These
settings will keep most plants alive and will keep
pipes from freezing and bursting in the winter.
Do I run
any risk by accepting the lowest bid?
A YES! If a bid comes in 5-10% lower than other
companies it is because they are using inferior
products, do not do a quality installation or are
leaving something out of their bid. Many companies
will not pay for permits or schedule the inspector
to come to your house. We do all the work for you,
you just need to relax and enjoy the comfort and
energy efficiency of your new system.
