When thinking about energy efficiency, one of the most important decisions to be made regarding a new home is the type of heating and cooling system to install. Equally critical to consider is the selection of the heating and cooling contractor. The operating efficiency of a system depends as much on proper installation as it does on the performance rating of the equipment. Improper design and improper installation of the HVAC system have negative impacts on personal comfort and on energy bills. Improper design and installation of a HVAC system can dramatically degrade the quality of air in a home. Poorly designed and poorly installed ducts can create dangerous conditions that may reduce comfort, degrade indoor air quality, or even threaten the health of the homeowners.
Two types of heating systems are most common: forced-air or radiant, with forced-air being used in the majority of the homes. The heat source is either a furnace, which burns a gas, or an electric heat pump. Furnaces are generally installed with central air conditioners. Heat pumps provide both heating and cooling. Some heating systems have an integrated water heating system.
Most new homes have forced-air heating and cooling systems. These systems use a central furnace plus an air conditioner, or a heat pump. Forced-air systems utilize a series of ducts to distribute the conditioned heated or cooled air throughout the home. A blower, located in a unit called an air handler, forces the conditioned air through the ducts. In many residential systems, the blower is integral with the furnace enclosure.
Larger homes often use two or more separate heating and air conditioning units for different floors or areas. Multiple systems can maintain greater comfort throughout the house while saving energy by allowing different zones of the house to be at different temperatures. The greatest savings come when a unit serving an unoccupied zone can be turned off.

Humidifiers are invaluable tools for helping you maintain a healthy humidity level in moisture-deprived homes, offices, or other areas. Humidifiers add moisture to your room using either warm or cool mist technologies.

Opening a window can make your air feel less stuffy, but this isn't practical during the hotter and colder months of the year, plus it invites pollen and other allergens into your home. Heat-recovery ventilator (HRV) helps keep your air fresh without creating a potentially uncomfortable situation.
If your home is air-tight and energy-efficient, it may need more fresh air. An energy-recovery ventilator is one way get it without sacrificing efficiency.
Tankless water heaters provide hot water only as it is needed, eliminating the need for a storage tank and the standby losses associated with constantly maintaining a tank full of hot water.
Most homes have a tank-type water heater. If you find a large, cylindrical tank standing on end with pipes attached to it, you have a tank-type system. We can help you find the best and most efficient solution for your home if you have an older generation hot water tank or are experiencing hot water loss.
Thermostat is a connected device that lets you remotely control the temperature.
