Is Your Air Conditioner Sized Correctly?

Monday, May 23rd, 2016

When homeowners consider replacing their air conditioner or installing an air conditioner in their new home, they are often quick to assume that the bigger the system is, the better. This is unfortunately not the case, as a larger unit can create unforeseen problems and end up costing you more in the long run.

The problem with an amateur installation, or a do-it-yourself job is that you don’t have professionals there conducting a much-needed cooling load calculation on your home. Simply going by the size of the previous AC system that was in the home or selecting one that “seems” to be the right size is a big mistake.

Below we’ve highlighted the biggest benefits of zone controlled systems.

Just as insulation keeps heat in your home during the winter, it also keeps heat out of your home during the summer. This in turn reduces your air conditioner’s workload and helps your home cool efficiently.

Combat Poor Indoor Air Quality with These Products

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

Today’s homes are being built in a way that makes them “tighter,” meaning there is no way for air to escape. This makes them extremely energy efficient and very beneficial for your HVAC system as it won’t have to work as hard to heat or cool your home. However, due to this the indoor air quality of homes in Texas has been getting worse.

Today’s construction practices don’t allow your home to “breath,” which is causing the indoor air to become more contaminated than the outdoor air. The good news is, we have many products and services available to help combat this.
