HOMEPRO ANSWERS

Mechanical systems, also known as heating/air conditioning (HVAC) systems are an important component of our homes. We rely on this system to keep us warm during the winter and as the seasons change, we expect the system to keep us cool during the summer. In those moments where that simple process fails us, we are all too quick to call in a professional for service and are ultimately left with a costly invoice to "bring our surroundings back to normal". Many older homes with hot water heating were built before air conditioning was invented. They are often comfortable in the winter, though utility bills keep growing. Meanwhile, they are usually uncomfortable during the summer because the retrofitted central air conditioning systems suffers from poor design. Even in newer homes, you may find that you need to turn up the volume of the TV when the HVAC system runs or that one or more rooms are uncomfortable during the heating or cooling season. The vast majority of homes with ducted heating and cooling experience a great deal of air leakage into and out of the return and supply ducts, with the result that your bills are much higher than they need to be.
