Comfort Insights

Comfort Insights is the name of Precision Comfort’s blog where Energy Man Dan shares his home comfort tips. Below you will find the best advice on energy efficiency, home heating and air conditioning and tips to lower your energy bills. Precision Comfort Systems, Inc. is the heating and cooling specialist in Central Indiana and we’re here to help with all your home comfort needs.

A new Air Conditioner on your old duct system?

When you purchase a new air conditioner from Precision Comfort Systems in Indiana, you get some hard-to-find custom services. Think about this. While you’re investing a few thousand dollars for a new air conditioner, your investment could also include an upgraded duct system! See our new video that shows how custom duct fittings are made in our shop. See how we can custom design important duct parts for your home. This service can make a big difference for your new air conditioner.

A new furnace is just as important as a new air conditioner. Both systems rely on your duct system to transport the proper volume of comfort to each room. Many homes have a wonderful new air conditioner or new furnace. But the old duct system remains inadequate for proper comfort distribution. Precision Comfort Systems is in the custom sheet metal, duct fabrication business. Most of our competition use store-bought ducts and duct fittings. But we create some very custom fittings to increase your comfort and energy efficiency. We gain our experience through the hundreds of custom new homes for which we design and install the best in comfort systems. Most contractors only work in existing homes, replacing air conditioners and furnaces. Most have never built a new duct system on any job!

We are different. Watch the video.

When Precision Comfort SA new air conditioner should get new duct fittingsystems examines your old furnace and air conditioner, we take pride in going the extra step to evaluate the duct “fittings”. These are the pieces that connect the furnace or fan cabinet to the duct system. This is where the highest air volume and air velocity is found and it’s also where a new custom duct fitting can make the most improvement. Many times, when the duct system is accessible, we are even able to make changes downstream in the duct system to help a particularly uncomfortable area in your home. Remember, even the best new air conditioner or furnace is DOA if it is unable to deliver the comfort to the rooms where your family spends their time.


Vectren Natural Gas: Special offer for new gas meters

Your neighbors heat their homes with natural gas heat but your home does not even have a natural gas meter? What’s up withIs natural gas heat better than electric heat? that?

If your neighborhood already has homes with a natural gas meter, you are very lucky. You have the great opportunity to choose between your current electric heat pump or a natural gas furnace.

Precision Comfort Systems is working with Vectren (sometimes better known as Indiana Gas) to finally get a natural gas meter to your home. Heating with natural gas instead of an electric heat pump has many advantages:

  • Natural gas heat delivers a warmer register air temperature.
  • Natural gas heat costs much less to heat your home compared to your old heat pump.
  • If homes in your neighborhood have a natural gas meter but your home does not, chances are it will be valued a bit lower. If you sell your home, it may not sell as quickly as comparable homes with a natural gas meter.

Precision Comfort Systems has been selected to participate in a very appealing rebate offer to cut the cost of installing a natural gas meter for your home. In fact, getting a new gas line to your furnace location could be $zero! This covers one of our biggest obstacles in upgrading homes like yours to natural gas heat. Let us show you how to get instant rebates starting at $1100 toward your natural gas upgrade. And there are several other rebates to get even more than $1100!

How do I know if my home qualifies for these instant rebates?

This is a very easy test. If your home has never had a natural gas meter from Vectren, but there is a Vectren gas line on or near your property, you should qualify. Check with your neighbors closest to your home to see if their natural gas meter is from Vectren.

Call Precision Comfort Systems for a no obligation site visit to determine if your home qualifies for this limited time offer. We will also discuss how much it would cost to convert your heating system to natural gas and how much you could save in your heating costs. Call Ryan at 317-867-2665.

This is the perfect opportunity to catch up to the neighbors. Call us and we will make this an easy upgrade for your home and a great investment for your family.

Geothermal Federal Tax Credit Update

Geothermal Federal Tax Credit Update

January 3, 2017. Happy New Year from Precision Comfort Systems! This is just a quick update to this webpage to confirm that the federal tax credit for geothermal systems has ended. We had a tremendous 2016 installing new geothermal systems and we anticipate another strong year as fuel prices in general continue to rise. Keep in touch with our website to learn about any new geothermal incentives coming. Below is my original post from May, 2016 regarding the federal tax credit.

It has been great while it lasted. Imagine purchasing the most comfortable and efficient means of heating and cooling your home and having the government pay for 30% of the cost! That’s what we’ve been enjoying since 2009 with the geothermal federal tax credit. And it’s a true credit, not just a deduction. A tax credit is the last thing you do to your federal tax bill. When the form says you owe $5000 in taxes for 2016 and you apply a $3000 geothermal tax credit, you only owe $2000.

But as we’ve known for several years the credit is due to expire at the end of 2016. Of course our geothermal trade ally groups have been working hard to have the credit extended, but so far nothing has stuck. In December of 2015, when the Omnibus bill was passed some energy efficiency items were included but even though the solar industry got a tax credit extension, the residential geothermal efforts were not included. At first they claimed it was a simple drafting error and that it would be remedied in the near future. But nothing has happened yet.

A recent attempt failed when the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reauthorization bill had numerous provisions added, including geothermal, but in the end, it became so bogged down with extras, it was finally cleaned up and eventually passed with no amendments.

So here it is, May and you have an old geothermal heat pump that you have been considering upgrading. An upgrade now is a good idea considering some of the new features on the new Water Furnace systems. Did you know you can now monitor your heating and air conditioning energy usage? What a great way to calculate your energy savings. And don’t forget how commonplace it is to upgrade to a two speed system. Instead of buying a single speed 4 ton unit, you can buy a 3 ton/4 ton system that runs at the smaller, more efficient 3 ton size for most of the summer and then in the winter it starts out as a 3 ton heating device, bumps up to a 4 ton capacity as it gets colder and then finally utilizes the auxiliary heat only when needed in the cold weather.

But back to the topic of the tax credit; if you want to take advantage of the current program, you must purchase and install a new qualifying system before January 1, 2017. Thinking about waiting a few months to see if the tax credit gets renewed? This could be a bad decision. As I mentioned in a letter to some of our customers with older geothermal systems, our last few months of 2016 will be swamped. Precision Comfort Systems has thousands of geothermal customers and many with older systems will be waiting, trying to squeeze out a few extra weeks from their old units. Plus, we install hundreds of geothermal systems in new homes each year and our builders will be pushing us trying to beat the oncoming winter conditions. Please believe me, September through December could be too late to get on the schedule and even if you do sneak in, you are likely to find higher prices by all contractors at this time.

Please do not wait. Call or email us for an estimate on your new Water Furnace system, especially if you were one of our lucky customers who received our special offer letter for $500 off a new 5 Series Water Furnace. But remember, this special is over, June 19! Don’t delay.


Myth: Heat Pumps are not efficient in cold weather

We have been conditioned to expect our appliances to cycle. The refrigerator turns off and on. The basement sump pump cycles. The clothes dryer runs until the clothes are dry and then turns off with a friendly melody letting you know that it has completed its job. If any of these machines did not cycle off as we expect, we would naturally think something is wrong. So when the weather gets cold and your heat pump runs constantly, myths are born. Like, “A heat pump is not efficient in cold weather” or “Turn off the heat pump when it gets cold” or “Heat pumps are not designed for cold weather climates.” All myths! Hopefully you have only heard these misunderstood rants from neighbors or the “expert know-it-all” at work. But if you’re hearing any of these myths from your heating contractor, you have some additional problems. If you’re hearing these profound “truths” from your spouse, then they are absolutely true, but you might accidentally leave this blog open on the home PC.

Here’s the truth. Heat pumps are tremendously efficient, even in cold weather. True, the efficiency does decline slightly as the temperature goes down, but even at very cold, single digit temps, heat pump efficiency is impressive and always better than any other setting on your thermostat. Do not turn the heat pump off by switching to Em. Ht. (Emergency Heat). Assuming your heat pump is working properly, never listen to any service technician who suggests “giving the heat pump a rest” unless you want to pay two or three times the cost on your electric bill.

So if heat pumps are so efficient, then why do they run all the time? Here is a blog from the past with more information on this.

But what if my heat pump really is broke and running non-stop? How will I know if I need service? Here are some tips to keep you from calling for service every time it gets cold.

But hold on! Not only does my heat pump run all day and all night, but when it does get cold outside, my home feels colder! What about that Mr. Heat Pump Expert?!

Great question. Here’s why. Your thermostat prioritizes the heat pump run time to maximize the cheap heat. The auxiliary heat (electric resistance heat, or back-up heat) is minimized since it is more expensive. Here’s how it works. Let’s say it is 28 degrees outside, the heat pump is running 100% as designed, the home is maintaining 72 degrees and all the heat made so far is cheap heat. Now let’s say it cools to 26 degrees outside. If the home temperature goes down one, or sometimes two degrees, this causes the thermostat to bring on the auxiliary heat for a very short boost to supplement the heat pump. The home temperature raises to a point just short of the thermostat set point and then the auxiliary heat turns off as soon as possible. Meanwhile the heat pump has been running non-stop throughout this time to maximize the cheap heat. So in cold temperatures, the heat pump runs non stop to maximize your cheap heat but your home may remain a degree or two below your thermostat setting.

What should you do, suffer? NO! The heat pump is very efficient so make it do its thing. Simply turn up the thermostat a degree or two in cold weather so you are comfortable. Do not suffer and submit yourself to the old myth that heat pump homes are cold. (I’ve heard service techs poorly advise customers, “Sorry, you will just have to get used to it”.) Remember, you are not really splurging or abusing the environment by adding one or two degrees. In very cold weather, adjusting a heat pump thermostat to 73 may be necessary to provide the 72 degree comfort you were initially looking for.

One tip that is not a myth. Resist cranking your heat pump thermostat by more than two degrees at a time. If you do this frequently, you will be calling up the expensive heat to accommodate the fast blast of heat. This will not hurt your heating system but it can raise your bill if you do this often.

More questions? Call Precision Comfort Systems. We’re the honest ones with much more precise information on your comfort systems.

When to use Emergency Heat on a heat pump

Emergency Heat setting can double billsEmergency Heat sounds like a wonderful feature for a heating system. It sounds comforting to push the “Power Boost” button during the blizzard. Especially in times of a winter emergency as defined by our central Indiana weather personalities on TV. I am waiting for the day I hear, “… that’s right Bob, we are bracing for our first 2 to 3.6 inches of snow tonight and we will be tracking it throughout your evening TV shows and by the way, you should be rushing to your thermostat and switching into Emergency Heat as soon as possible!

What is Emergency Heat and when should you use it? An Emergency Heat switch is found on most electric heat pump thermostats. Sometimes it is abbreviated as “Em.Ht.” and sometimes it is called Auxiliary Heat (Aux.Ht.). Gas furnaces do not have this feature. The Emergency Heat switch is very easy to understand; it simply turns off your heat pump. But you do not want to do this unless you enjoy electric bills that are twice what they should be.

Your heat pump is a very efficient means of heating your home. Read my previous blogs about heat pump efficiency. All heat pump systems in Indiana also have backup heating coils to assist the heat pump in very cold weather. The backup coils are similar to a much less efficient, portable space heater or the type of heat coils you would see in an old toaster. Electric heating coils are only about one-third as efficient as the heat pump. But fortunately they only account for about 15% to 20 % of your home’s total winter heating needs in Central Indiana. The more efficient heat pump is responsible for most (80% to 85%) of your winter heating. Unless of course you make the mistake and turn off the heat pump!

Do not turn off your heat pump! Some nasty advice is given, even from heating contractors who do not know any better, that you can use the emergency heat setting on your thermostat and “give the heat pump a break when the weather gets cold”. Well take it from me. This switch named “em. ht.” is misnamed. It has nothing to do with getting extra heating capacity or serving as a cold day setting. It should be named, “DOUBLE OR TRIPLE MY BILLS!” When you switch to “em. ht.”, you turn off your heat pump and now the more expensive backup furnace (toaster coils) are heating your home at two to three times the cost.

Don’t do this! Allow the heat pump to run and love it. New heat pumps are very efficient and they are designed to run non stop when you need it most so your heating bill is normal. Even older heat pumps are much better than the electric furnace. Heat pumps are so efficient that even if you need to raise the thermostat a degree or two on the worst winter days, you will still be better off in the normal heating mode and not switching to emergency heat.

If your heat pump is too old, then its ability to move heat may be less than what it should be. Call Precision Comfort Systems, your Central Indiana heat pump specialists, to evaluate your current heat pump. We can tune it up or eventually replace it so you are getting the most from the current heat pump technology.

When are you supposed to use this switch? If you find that your heat pump is not working (read how to test this on your own) then you can switch to emergency heat until a technician from Precision Comfort Systems can visit your home. Or perhaps a part needs to be ordered. Our technician may leave your system in the emergency heat mode for a short time until the heat pump can be repaired.

What if it is very, very cold? Cold weather is still no reason to turn off your heat pump. A heat pump is slightly less efficient in cold weather than it is in normal 20 to 30 degree winter weather, but it is never less efficient than the backup heat. So switching to Emergency Heat will always increase your bills. And most heat pumps will, in the normal heating mode, automatically use all the electric backup heat if necessary to heat your home. You do not get extra heat when switching to emergency heat. (If your heating contractor has custom wired your system to “save” some backup heat capacity solely for the Emergency Heat setting, there is no reason to do this and it should be changed back.)

Most important, be sure you have someone servicing your heat pump, that understands heat pumps. Call Precision Comfort Systems, your Central Indiana heat pump specialists, to service your heat pump.

So much window moisture, frogs will appear

Summer humidity causes window condensationTree frogs in the tropics love humidity, condensation and moisture in general. But check out this moisture lover in Indiana. He was attracted to the window condensation during the air conditioning season. Do you have condensation on the outside of your windows on your home?

Why does moisture form on the outside of your windows during the air conditioning season? There are two reasons and if either one of these conditions change, the moisture should go away.

First, outside humidity must be high. You may be very familiar with the term Relative Humidity (RH), but the better indication of high humidity is the Dew Point Temperature. The higher this number, the more moisture in the air. RH will many times deceive you during hot summer conditions but the Dew Point is a good number to compare from day to day or hour to hour since it is not affected by temperature.

The second reason you have moisture condensation on your windows is the cold temperature of the glass. This is normally from air conditioning inside the home and even more noticeable when an air conditioning vent is located near a window. When you cool the glass and expose this cool surface to the moist air outside, we say the glass temperature is below the outdoor dew point temperature and there you have it… “dew” or better, condensation. If the glass temperature was not as cold or the outside air was not as humid, this will not happen.

Our conditions in Indiana this summer have been noticeably tropical. The tree frogs love it! When all their world is moist and humid, this will extend their range and during the night they jump, dance and generally frolic in the humid Indiana rain forest. So I was not surprised yesterday when I arrived at work to find this tree frog on my glass door that was covered with condensation moisture.

Precision Comfort Systems has much more information about home humidity and how to keep you comfortable in all the Indiana weather. Call us if you need help with anything related to home comfort.


DIY test: is heat pump causing high electric bill?

If you receive a high electric bill in the winter and if you heat your Indianapolis area home with an electric heat pump and if you notice your heat pump runs 24/7, you might presume the heat pump is the problem. The trouble is, you normally have to call your heating contractor to see if the heat pump is working properly. Well here is a do it yourself test to check the heat pump, to see if it is working properly. This test is so easy, you will find yourself checking the heat pump operation every time you pass by. It’s almost as alluring as checking wet paint!

Before we start, I suggest you read an earlier blog (follow link) where I explain that it is normal for your heat pump to run non stop in cold weather. But even though your system is supposed to run often, you should know that a heat pump compressor can fail and the outside unit will still appear that it is working since the outside fan is still running. So how do we know the heat pump is doing its thing?

From the link above, you know a heat pump is two to four times more efficient than your backup electric heat. If your heat pump compressor fails and your backup heat takes over, the heat pump fan never shuts off and 6 weeks later you get a high electric bill, three times what it should be.

Here’s how to test if your heat pump is working. The outside unit is connected to the inside furnace by two copper refrigerant lines. One is the size of your thumb, the other the size of your little finger. In the winter, when the outside unit is running, feel the larger of the two copper lines. It is probably covered by a black foam insulation, so you will need to get under this foam to feel the metal pipe. This line should be very warm to the touch. It will not burn you, but on most winter days above 20 degrees, you will want to pull your finger off pretty quick. This pipe is carrying lots of heat. The heat was absorbed from the outdoor air and is now being sent to your home.

If the line is not hot:

  • Is the outside unit running? Can you get it to run by raising the thermostat? Is your thermostat improperly set to emergency heat? If you cannot get the outdoor heat pump to run… and this is not what you want to hear… it’s broke.
  • Is the heat pump in a defrost cycle? (That’s when steam is coming off the unit.) If so, wait until it’s done and test later.
  • Do you really have a heat pump? (An air conditioner is not supposed to run in the winter.) Call Precision Comfort Systems and let’s get your electric bills cut in half with a new heat pump!

If none of the above apply and the copper line is not hot, your heat pump is probably not working. The indoor electric furnace has taken over and this is costing you two to three times what you should be paying. Call Precision Comfort Systems now and we will find out exactly what is wrong.

Repeating from my last blog (but it is very important and worth a second post):

Some nasty advice is given, even among heating contractors who do not know any better, that you should use the emergency heat setting on your thermostat and “give the heat pump a break when the weather gets cold”. Well take it from me. This switch named “em. ht.” is misnamed. It has nothing to do with getting extra heating capacity or being a special setting for a cold day. It should be named, “DOUBLE OR TRIPLE MY BILLS!” When you switch to “em. ht.”, you turn off your heat pump and now the more expensive backup furnace (toaster coils) are heating your home at two to three times the cost. Don’t do this! Allow the heat pump to run and love it. New heat pumps are very efficient and they are designed to run non stop when you need it most so your heating bill is normal. Even older heat pumps are much better than the electric furnace.

If your heat pump is too old, then its ability to move heat may be less than what it should be. Call Precision Comfort Systems, your Central Indiana heat pump specialists, to evaluate your current heat pump. We can tune it up or eventually replace it so you are getting the most from the current heat pump technology.



Home Humidity Solutions for Health & Comfort

Trust your nose. Especially in the humid summer months, is your home humidity where it should be for the best health and comfort? How do you control home humidity? What is the right humidity level and how do I read humidity? The easiest answer is to trust your nose. Do you smell mildew or dampness in the basement? If you do, you are probably growing some things in hidden places that are creating these odors. Improve your health and comfort with proper humidity control.

So far, this summer has been the perfect example of why you may need to pay more attention to the humidity level in your home. The weather this season has been extremely humid, but only moderately hot. This is not a good combination for most homes and especially if you have a basement you should consider additional dehumidification to improve your health and comfort. Normally, when it gets hot and humid in the summer, your air conditioner will run frequently enough to take moisture out of the air. Your goal is to condition your home to about 75 degrees and about 50% relative humidity. But if the weather is mild and your air conditioner does not run enough, you may have humidity readings closer to 60%. If you are at 60% RH or higher in a basement you are not going to be happy.

In my home, I have run two portable dehumidifiers in the past to help keep the humidity levels in the comfort zone. Unfortunately, these units are not made well and only last 2 to 3 years. They are also not very efficient. Recently, I changed to a “whole house dehumidifier” system and for the first time my family is now experiencing true summer comfort. The basement is a healthy 51% RH and the upstairs is an amazing 42% RH to 47% RH. Dry air is very comfortable! And I can only imagine that any mildew in the basement has now been starved of it’s necessary diet of moist air. The whole house dehumidifier we chose was a high efficiency model which means it uses less electricity for each gallon of water it removes. Also, we have now raised the temperature setting at our thermostat which will save more money.

DBest Home Humidity for health and comfortid I mention the water removal? Wow! It has a clear hose that drains the water and I watched this the first day. I could not believe how much water it was sucking from the air in my home as well as the moisture stored in all the walls, furniture, clothes, wood floors and everything else. After a couple days, it settled down and it now runs only occasionally to keep the house at the perfect humidity level for our comfort and I presume, health.

I suggest that you purchase a temperature/humidity monitor at the home center. If you discover (or even if you simply suspect) that your home humidity is too high, call Precision Comfort Systems to see if a whole house dehumidification system will work in your home. It sure helped mine!

Indiana hot weather air conditioner service

Hot, humid summer weather… you know it’s coming! The only good thing about  the Indianapolis area getting hot and humid is… we all have something to talk about.  And what’s more, almost all of us will finally agree on something; It’s HOT and we love our air conditioning! At Precision Comfort Systems, our Indianapolis air conditioner, AC service calls have been increasing. The AC service department has been busy responding to all the No Cooling calls in Westfield, Noblesville, Fishers, Carmel and the other communities surprised by our early heat this year. Much of the time the service technician spends on an AC service call is answering questions like, “Is it OK if my AC is running non stop?” “How can I lower my high air conditioning bills?” Where should I set my AC thermostat temperature?”

Precision Comfort Systems AC service technicians are the best and they know the answers to most air conditioning questions. But I thought I would help them out by answering some of the most common air conditioning and summer comfort questions. Here are the questions we hear the most during the hot summer weather:

Why does my air conditioner never turn off on the hot days? It’s OK. In Central Indiana, air conditioners are sized for normal summer conditions of 15 to 20 degrees warmer outside than inside. So if it gets 20 degrees warmer outside than your thermostat setting, you will most likely see your AC running all the time. But even in extreme weather if you can cool your home 20 degrees less than say 100 degrees, your will still maintain a reasonably comfortable temperature for mid and late afternoon. And then by evening it should start to catch up. If you cannot maintain at least 15 degrees cooler than the outdoor temperature, Call Us!

Is my air conditioner size too small? It could be, but do not judge your AC size on the hottest day of the year. In Indiana, 95 degrees outside temperature is very rare. Normal is more like 88 to 90 for a hot day. If your AC will not maintain 75 degrees inside when it’s 88 degrees outside it may be too small or it may not be working properly. A Precision Comfort Technician can determine this and tell you the truth.

Do I need a new high-efficiency air conditioner or just an AC repair? We try our best to get the full life out of your current air conditioner. AC life expectancy is about 13 to 17 years (average 15 years). Some repairs can make a big difference and it is very much worth the cost of AC service. But eventually you need an honest technician to tell you when it’s time to upgrade to a new, higher efficiency, more dependable air conditioner.

What are some easy ways to save on air conditioning costs? Here are two very easy and free AC tips. On bright hot summer days, close the drapes or blinds on the sunny side of the home. Solar heat can account for 50% of your AC costs and air conditioning load. Also, if you are air conditioning today and you plan on air conditioning tomorrow, do not open your home tonight. The night air is cool, but it is still humid. Summer humidity in Indiana can cause you AC bills to double.

Where should I set my air conditioning thermostat temperature? This is a tough one. Summer comfort is very subjective for each of us. (I think we are more sensitive to temperature in the summer than we are in the winter.) The first thing to note is that your home thermostat(s) may not be perfectly accurate, so do not get too set on an exact number. Cool to your personal comfort level but keep these things in mind; 1) you normally only have the ability to cool 20 degrees from the outside temperature, 2) each degree you lower the thermostat you could add 10% to 15% to your air conditioning bill, 3) if you wait until late afternoon to “cool down” the home, the AC may not be capable of reducing the home temperature during peak conditions.

Hope this helps. Keep Cool! If your AC fails, call Precision Comfort Systems! We offer much more than AC service repair. When you’re having comfort problems, we offer an honest evaluation of your heating and cooling system as well as your entire home. Our trained technicians have the experience to find your problem, and it’s not always a new system. And don’t forget, we offer free second opinions!

How to Cool Hot Upstairs rooms with a new AC

The hot summer days and especially the nights bring back one of the most common home comfort problems: a hot upstairs. Despite your air conditioner repair man saying the AC is tuned up and running properly, the bedrooms on the second floor are so hot, many in the family choose to sleep downstairs. Better yet, if you have one, you may find relief 10 to 15 degrees cooler in the basement! How can a home’s air conditioning system become so imbalanced? How can you fix a hot upstairs during a hot Indianapolis summer? How can you improve the air conditioning in the second floor rooms?

First let’s mention the things that will not help your hot rooms in the summer:

  •  A new air conditioning system will not likely help.
  • An air conditioning system tune up will not help.
  • Closing all the downstairs registers may help the hot upstairs a little, but your air conditioning system may suffer from inadequate airflow.
  • Attic fans are overrated and can cause more problems sucking air conditioned air out of your home.
  • More attic insulation helps, but only if you have very little now. Adding more to an adequate amount will do very little.
  • Ceiling fans are a mild consolation. They circulate the warm air but do not cool it and even add a little heat to the room.

So what is the solution to a hot upstairs where the second floor rooms need more air conditioning? You need a heating contractor that understands air duct design. Most HVAC dealers replace heating and air conditioning systems, but do not design and install new, premium air distribution systems in new homes. Precision Comfort Systems is the top choice for Indianapolis area builders when it comes to a balanced home air conditioning system. Let Precision look at your air conditioning system to see what changes are needed in your duct system to finally improve your hot upstairs.

When is the right time to do this? The ideal time is when you purchase a new air conditioner and or furnace. Thus the reason for the title of this blog… How to Cool Hot Upstairs rooms with a new AC. Do not make the mistake of simply buying a new air conditioner without having a duct design specialist examine your duct system. The first 10 feet of your duct system can be the most important factors and a Precision Comfort specialist will always consider your total home comfort when quoting a new air conditioning system. We even offer a complete home inspection that can identify other major sources of your summer discomfort.

Are you ready to get serious about your hot upstairs? Call Precision and let’s look for a new duct route to the hot second floor rooms. Let’s see if a second, high efficiency air conditioner can be used for the upstairs. Let’s see if we can add a zoning system to the entire home. You need a Precision air distribution design specialist when you buy a new air conditioner!
