1. The primary provider of comfort in the home IS the home itself and not the hvac system.
Improved home went from 5 tons to 2 tons of A/C
2. Sizing hvac equipment to match the heating & cooling needs of the home is very important.
Bigger is not better
3.A heating & cooling SYSTEM involves more than just a furnace, evaporator coil and condenser.
System efficiency involves more than just the equipment
To properly achieve thermal comfort & energy efficiency is a very simple process that involves 3 simple steps:
1. Make your home well air sealed & insulated
2. Purchase high efficiency heating & air conditioning equipment that is
sized & designed to keep up with, not exceed, the homes heating &
3. Connect that equipment to a duct system (for forced air systems) that
is designed & sized correctly for the equipment being installed.
The good news is that there is not necessarily a higher initial cost associated with following the 3 simple steps to comfort & energy efficiency, and even better, there is a definite lower operating cost (utility bills) that will put money back into your pocket every year, and there is a definite increase in comfort that you will experience throughout the whole home.
