Installation

Our skilled technicians understand how to get the best performance from your air conditioner, furnace, coil, heat pump or air handler. If not properly installed even the most efficient equipment can cost you more on your utility bills and/or shorten the life of your heating and cooling system. To maximize your comfort and air quality your home may also require a humidifier, an air filtration system or other essential accessories which are all best determined prior to installation.

Proper installation of ductwork is also important. Ducts circulate the air and ventilate rooms so if installation is done incorrectly you may experience poor ventilation, uneven cooling or heating and a considerable level of undesired noise. Unsealed duct systems lose to % of your home’s heating/cooling energy and may be harmful to your health as air leaks in the duct can contain fumes from household and garden chemicals insulation particles mold and dust. These items can intensify existing asthma and allergy problems. Sealing your ducts can help you breathe easier by improving your indoor air quality reducing the risk of pollutants entering and circulating through your home and maintain the efficiency of your hvac system.
