Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC)
The EPA and DOE confirm that as much as half (or more in extreme climates) of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. So making smart decisions about your home’s heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems can have a big effect on your utility bills — and your comfort.
Cincinnati Energy Solutions can help you find the right heating and cooling equipment, but that is only a small part of the service. We make sure the equipment is properly sized and installed so you get the performance, comfort, and efficiency you deserve.
The “right” equipment for your home
When it comes to furnaces, boilers, and air-conditioners, bigger usually doesn’t mean better. You need equipment that is “right-sized.” If the unit is too large for your home, you will not only pay more up front, but you won’t get the comfort or efficiency you expect. Oversized equipment will operate in short run times or cycles, not allowing the unit to reach efficient operation. In addition, oversized air-conditioners will not run long enough to remove humidity from the air. This can leave you feeling cool but not comfortable and can create moisture problems.
Don’t assume that the size of your new system will be the same as your old equipment. Original equipment may have been oversized from the start. And with improvements in insulation, air-sealing, windows, and other changes, as well as carefully testing and measurement, Cincinnati Energy Solutions is often able to significantly downsize furnaces and air-conditioners.
