(Click Here to learn more about HVAC) We need to know that the air in our home is clean and safe for breathing, especially if there are young children or elderly people living there. That is why it is important to consider the ventilation capabilities of the home.

We also need to know that there will be warmth in the winter months and the ability to keep cool in the summer. Northeast Ohio is known for some wild weather changes, especially in the transitional months where the weather can change seemingly by the hour.

Knowing Who You Are Hiring and What They Do

A HVAC contractor is a person who you call in when you are getting ready to build a house or building or when you need to upgrade, update or remodel the existing heating and cooling system. The contractor will determine the correct size and capability of the heating system to be installed and will point out the other key needs for the homeowner so that the house will be warm and comfortable year round for everyone who lives there.

An incorrectly installed system or one that is not the right size for the home can cause multiple problems. These problems can range from the minor issues of hot and cold spots in the home to the more serious problems such as skyrocketing heating and cooling bills, a system that breaks down frequently because it is not big enough to safely handle its load or freezing pipes because the system has failed yet again.

Another problem that can be caused by an improper system is the growth of mold when there is inadequate ventilation or a heating system that does not reach all corners of the home. How big a system should be depends on a number of factors, all of which can be evaluated by an expert.
