Advanced Heating, Cooling & Ventilation
In a typical home, most of the utility costs go to heating the home in the winter and cooling it in the summer. Building a super-insulated high performance house reduces those costs dramatically. We install an Advanced Heating, Cooling and Ventilation package in every energy efficient American Heritage Home.
The package includes a high efficiency gas furnace and air conditioner. But that is just the basics.
To start, your HVAC system is custom designed for your home according to ACCA Standards. Equipment is sized properly. We don't use outdated "Rules if Thumb" that often result in poorly performing systems that cost to much to run and don't provide comfort. Every space in your home is modeled in computer software to determine just the right amount of ductwork needed to properly condition it.
To operate the equipment we also provide a Digital Programmable Thermostat and to ensure the proper amount of fresh outside air is brought into your home, we install an automatic ventilation damper and control unit.
In addition to these advanced conventional HVAC systems, as custom home builders, we are also expert at installing Geothermal Systems, which you can learn more about here.
