This first Heating and Air Conditioning business I called about an quote for a current furnace provided me a price for a model of the exact same specs.

This didn’t seem right to me.

Over the years since the original furnace was installed, we’ve made a lot of swings. We’ve replaced the roof, added attic installation and had brand new, ENERGY STAR rated windows installed. We’ve caulked, weather sealed and added ceiling fans. We’ve torn down walls and installed sliding glass doors to a back patio. A screened porch was converted into an extra bedroom. Our adolescents have gone off to school and taken us from a family of five to two. All of these swings entirely made a difference in the heat load of the home. I did some research and learned that Heating and Air Conditioning businesss should complete a Manual J calculation. They should take into consideration more than the size of the outdated furnace and square footage of the house… Everything from weather conditions and windows to insulation and shade trees make a difference. If a furnace is too small for the demand, it won’t be able to keep up. The furnace will run constantly but fail to provide a comfortable home. The longer run times can result in a shorter lifespan. A furnace that’s oversized is almost as bad. The system will achieve temperature setting too hastily and never achieve peak efficiency levels. Short-cycling can be hard on components and increase the risk of repairs. I called around and spoke with five unusual Heating and Air Conditioning companies before I found one that provides standard calculations for sizing. They provided a free quote and back every task with a 100% joy guarantee.
