1. Improper Sizing
Not every air conditioner or furnace can cool or heat every home. The bigger the
home, the bigger the equipment you’ll need. However, many times homes have air conditioners
or furnaces that aren’t big enough for their home. As a result, their equipment
is working overtime, which results in higher utility bills for you! It may even
be the reason why your furnace or air conditioner seems so loud. Even worse, having
an improperly sized air conditioner and/or furnace means it could breakdown much
sooner than you expected when you first bought it.
A Comfort Qualified™ technician or comfort advisor will measure your home
and carefully calculate the exact type of furnace and/or air conditioner you need.
You won’t be faced with a home comfort system that wastes energy and your money!
You’ll receive exactly what your home needs and you want… peace of mind.
2. Improper Installation
The technician who installed your furnace and/or air conditioner may have seemed
like he knew what he was doing, but how can you be certain? Some contractors hire
anyone off the street when business is booming. They don’t quite know how technically
competent their new technicians are. As a result, your furnace and/or air conditioner
may not be properly installed. The ductwork may not be properly connected and sealed,
or the airflow is restricted. That results in higher utility bills and a home comfort
system not operating properly.
Comfort Qualified™ technicians undergo stringent hiring practices and are
all highly trained. When you deal with a Comfort Qualified™ Company, your furnace
and/or air conditioner will be properly installed to meet your exact comfort needs.
You won’t have to overwork your furnace and/or air conditioner and rack up unsightly
3. Leaky Ductwork
Everyone thinks about their furnace or air conditioner when they think about their
home’s comfort system. But the conditioned air they create still needs to be delivered
to the rooms in your home. That’s the job of your ductwork. When it’s not installed
properly and contains a number of leaks, you’re losing that warm or cool air before
it ever reaches inside your home… even though you’re still paying for it to be produced!
It’s also the reason for the hot or cold spots in your house, and it can create
moisture behind your walls, which leads to mildew and odors. Leaky ductwork can
lead to a number of problems for your home, not just its comfort.
Comfort Qualified™ Companies play close attention to detail. So, your furnace
and/or air conditioner aren’t the only things carefully installed; your ductwork
receives a great deal of attention too. In fact, with a Comfort Qualified™ installation,
there are different types of ductwork you can choose for your home. You’ll receive
the best ductwork system for you home that’s carefully put together and sealed.
