Our Process & Why We Do It

We use an industry proven heat loss and heat gain to size your equipment. Why?

  • “The size of a heating or cooling system will determine not only its ability to heat or cool your home, but also the size of your energy bills. Oversized cooling systems can be noisy, provide inadequate thermal comfort, and lead to mold and poor indoor air quality—while costing too much.”
    “Insist that your contractor use the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) Manual J to calculate the proper size of heating and cooling equipment.”

  • “To be sure of correct sizing, choose a contractor who agrees to take the time to calculate heating needs using an industry standard calculation, such as found in the Air Conditioning Contractors of America’s Manual J. Such calculations take into account the climate, along with the house’s size, design, and construction.”

  • “Determining the load by using rules of thumb almost always leads to an over-sized heating and cooling system, resulting in an increased initial cost, increased monthly utility bills, increased maintenance, and shortened equipment life because the equipment cycles off and on too frequently. ”

Why We Use Nitrogen During Installation

  • Using nitrogen during installation prevents oxidation from forming within your refrigeration lines that can lead to poor system performance. “It is food practice to purge an inert gas such as oxygen free nitrogen to prevent oxides (scale) forming on the inside of the pipe.”
