How do I know when it’s time to replace my heating or air conditioning system?


1. Do you have hot or cold rooms in the house?

A new, properly installed system can yield the same temperature from one end of the house to the other.

2. Do you have to wear a sweatshirt or wrap yourself in a blanket when you’re “relaxing” at home?

Variable speed two-stage furnaces, hydro-air, and radiant heating can stop drafts in your home.

The indoor part of a central air conditioning or heat pump system is also called an Air Handler. This moves the air throughout the ductwork of your home.
