correctly. Too small and it will run continuously. We will
be happy to configure just the right system for your needs.

Is a bigger
furnace or air conditioner better?
No it is not. Bigger is not always better in the HVAC
industry. A larger air conditioner uses more electricity and
costs more to purchase, install and upkeep. A properly sized
unit will provide the most efficient energy use and most
comfort in your home. When buying a home comfort system,
selecting the right size is crucial. For instance, an air
conditioner that is too large will cool your home quickly
but you still may not feel comfortable. It will satisfy the
thermostat before it can remove sufficient moisture from the
air. However, a system that is too small just cannot get the
job done. As Trane Comfort Specialists, we can help you
determine the right size system for your home comfort needs.

If you have a 15 year old unit it could be as little as 6
SEER. Most people set their thermostat around 78 degrees in
the summer to save costs and with a new Trane high
efficiency air conditioner you could save as much as $600
per summer on a typical 4 ton unit while having your
thermostat set a few degrees colder.
What are the
benefits of a programmable thermostat?
A Programmable thermostat is programmed for when you leave
your house and then return home. The thermostat turns of the
furnace during the hours you are not home so that energy is
not used to keep the house warm while you are at work. The
thermostat will then turn back on 30 minutes before you come
home so your house is at the perfect temperature when you
are home. These thermostats save up to 15% on your energy
bills during the winter and 10% in the summer.
Why are furnaces and
air conditioners so noisy?
They are not noisy if you install new Trane components in
your system. Old units were not built with the quality
materials that are used today. Trane also installs sound
insulators on the compressor as well as a weather guard top
that not only reduces noise but increases the life of the
unit by not letting debris get into the system.
When I am on
vacation should I turn off my furnace to save energy?
Common settings is 85 degrees in the summer if you have air
conditioning and 60 in the winter if you will be gone for a
couple of days. These settings will keep most plants alive
and will keep pipes from freezing and bursting in the
Do I run any risk by
accepting the lowest bid?
YES! If a bid comes in 5-10% lower than other companies it
is because they are using inferior products, do not do a
quality installation or are leaving something out of their
bid. Many companies will not pay for permits or schedule the
inspector to come to your house. We do all the work for you,
you just need to relax and enjoy the comfort and energy
efficiency of your new system.
