Below are some frequently asked questions and energy saving tips to help you save money on your heating and cooling
If your heating and cooling system is over 10 years old, you’re probably cheating yourself out of energy and money. You could be paying 30-50% more in utility costs than you should be. We can help you lower those bills and make you more comfortable at the same time.
What size system should I have installed?
Answer: The right size system is paramount in your home. Too large and your system will short cycle and not control humidity correctly. Too small and it will run continuously. We will be happy to configure just the right system for your needs.
Is a bigger air conditioner better?
Answer: No it is not. Bigger is not always better in the HVAC industry. A larger air conditioner uses more electricity and costs more to purchase, install and upkeep. A properly sized unit will provide the most efficient energy use and most comfort in your home. When buying a home comfort system, selecting the right size is crucial. For instance, an air conditioner that is too large will cool your home quickly but you still may not feel comfortable. It will satisfy the thermostat before it can remove sufficient moisture from the air. However, a system that is too small just cannot get the job done. As Trane Comfort Specialists, we can help you determine the right size system for your home comfort needs.
How often should I change my filters?
Answer: Check and change every month depending on quality of filter. Replace when needed.
I would like to upgrade to a new high efficiency air conditioner. Do you offer financing?
Answer: Yes we offer financing with approved credit for all types of situations. Call us to ask about your specific needs.
What are the benefits of a programmable thermostat?
Answer: Programmable thermostat is programmed for when you leave your house and then return home. The thermostat turns off during the hours you are not home so that energy is not used to keep the house warm while you are at work. The thermostat will then turn back on 30 minutes before you come home so your house is at the perfect temperature when you are home. These thermostats save up to 15% on your energy bills during the winter and 10% in the summer.
Why are air conditioners so noisy?
Answer: They are not noisy if you install new Trane components in your system. Old units were not built with the quality materials that are used today. Trane also installs sound insulators on the compressor as well as a weather guard top that not only reduces noise but increases the life of the unit by not letting debris get into the system.
Do I run any risk by accepting the lowest bid?
Answer: YES! If a bid comes in 5-10% lower than other companies it is because they are using inferior products, do not do a quality installation or are leaving something out of their bid. We do all the work for you, you just need to relax and enjoy the comfort and energy efficiency of your new system.
Energy Saving Tips
If your heating and cooling system is over 10 years old, you’re probably cheating yourself out of energy and money. You could be paying 30-50% more in utility costs than you should be. We can help you lower those bills and make you more comfortable at the same time. Heating and cooling your home uses more energy dollars than any other system in your home. Typically, 44% of your utility bill goes for heating and cooling. You can save money and increase comfort by properly maintaining and upgrading your equipment.
An energy-efficient furnace or air conditioner alone won’t have as great an impact on your energy bills as using the whole house approach. By combining proper equipment, upgrades and maintenance with appropriate thermostat settings, insulation and weatherization, you can cut your energy bills in half.
