Thanks Sam!
Matt
Seems like your PM isnt activated, could you email me a short note so I can get back to you asap?

Also anyone who needs their homes sized can email me no problem.

Thanks!

First, make sure you didn't block any return air registers.

I wouldn't block all the basement registers simply because warm air rises, what ever heat isn't lost through windows or floors or walls will continually rise and warm other parts of the home.

If you really don't use the basement keep only a few open to raise the air pressure in the other parts of the house but I wouldn't close them all up.

I'd like in on the 2012 group buy. My closing date is Aug 29th, 2012. I'll need a 3 ton for a 2500 sq ft bungalow with loft, correct?

Hi Sam,

I've submitted my $100 deposit via your website and sent an email with my new address.

Hoping to set up installation of the 1.5ton unit the week of June 11, 2012.


Thanks for all your help!

Lori

Hi Sam,

I'm extremely interested in purchasing a new A/C with you, however our closing date is November 2012. Most likely won't be purchasing a unit until Spring of 2013. Do you have any off season promotions?

Does getting a higher ton AC make your home cool faster? I will have a 2000sq ft town home, footage includes basement. What are the benefits of getting a 3ton?

You definately don't want an A/C that is too powerful. If anything undersizing it a bit is better than oversizing it when it comes to A/C. One of the issues if it is too big is that your home will cool off too fast and the A/C will not run enough to remove the humidity from the air. You will end up with a cold damp house. 3 ton for your home is way too big!

They don't generally count your basement area in the total sq footage when it comes to selecting the size of the AC.

This is absolutely true! You will reduce the temperature very quick but you will still feel uncomfortable with the high humidity.

The more humidity in the home in the summer the more the temperature feels warm. So you would need to set the temperature very low to feel cool, which results in rising hydro costs and running your machine in short ON/OFF cycles very often.
An ac is almost better to be undersized to remove the unwanted humidity all while giving it a chance to get to it's efficient state. Undersizing an ac would still be uncomfortable when the weather gets very hot so you want to get an ac that is sized just right.
