An air conditioner makes living on Marco Island much more enjoyable! Air conditioners compress refrigerant. Then they pump the chilled liquid inside to the indoor coil, and warm air from the home is forced through the coil. An air conditioner’s efficiency is rated with a SEER rating.
A heat pump looks and acts just like an air conditioner. So what’s the difference? It can reverse the cooling process and provide heat for your home. That means that during November – January when our night cool down, a heat pump can keep your home cozy warm.
Did you know a furnace is used year round? When your air conditioner is running, the fan motor in the furnace is responsible for circulating air through the home. We offer furnaces with variable speed fan motors which makes them whisper quiet.
We know, the name is a little odd. However, without one of these, your air conditioner would be useless. When you have an air conditioner and furnace combo, the evaporator coil is what houses the chilled refrigerant from the air conditioner. A UV lamp installed in the coil kills efficiency robbing mold that tries to grow.
A fan coil is used in the absence of a furnace. For example, if you have a heat pump to both cool and heat your home, then a fan coil is needed to both replace the fan motor in the furnace, and the indoor coil in the evaporator coil. The right fan coil can lower overall cooling efficiency & variable speed fans are whisper quiet.
A normal air conditioning and heating system is called a “split system” because the equipment is located both inside and outside the home. Sometimes, having the equipment inside isn’t ideal, and for these instances a packaged system can be used. Packaged systems house everything in a single footprint outside the home.
Your new home is built tight to protect efficiency, but this also traps contaminants inside. Airborne toxins from household cleaners, finishing products, paints and even that new bed. We install air quality products that will protect, refresh and purify the air you breathe.
Innovative is typically a word used to describe the latest smart phone or iPad. Now it’s also used for modern thermostats. We install digital thermostats that are not only sleek in design, but offer a wide range of features including auto learning, programming, remote access and more!
