High Efficiency Heating and Cooling Equipment Maximizes Comfort & Savings

Upgrading to high efficiency cooling and heating equipment sized and installed properly remains the key to enjoying a comfortable home.

The EPA and DOE confirms about half (or more in extreme climates) of home energy costs result from heating and cooling consumption. Therefore, start making smart decisions about your home's heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. As a result, you'll enjoy a big impact on your utility bills — and your family's comfort.

GreenHomes helps homeowners find the right heating and cooling equipment --furnaces, boilers, air conditioners, heat pumps. However, finding equipment is only a small part of our services. In addition, we ensure HVAC equipment is properly sized and installed so you get the performance, comfort, and savings you deserve.

Bigger Isn’t Always Better!

When it comes to furnaces, boilers, and air-conditioners, bigger usually doesn’t mean better. You need equipment that is “right-sized.” For example, if the unit is too large for your home, you will not only pay more up front, but you won’t get the comfort or efficiency you expect.

Over-sized equipment operates in short run times or cycles, which does not allow the unit to reach efficient operation. In addition, over-sized air-conditioners will not run long enough to remove humidity from the air. Therefore, this leaves homes feeling cool, but not comfortable. Plus, this creates moisture problems.

Don’t assume that the size of your new system will be the same as your old equipment. For example, the original equipment may have been over-sized from the start. And there is no way to figure this out over the phone! Plus, improvements in insulation, air sealing, windows and other changes mean significantly downsizing your heating and cooling equipment.  Additionally, GreenHomes carefully tests and measures your home, which finds the right size equipment for your home.

GreenHomes looks not just at your HVAC system, but also your whole house. To maintain your HVAC system and minimize problems, ask about our HVAC Maintenance Plan.
