The most important thing to consider when purchasing an air conditioner for a single room is the size of the unit. If the unit is too small, it will struggle to keep the room at the desired temperature. If the unit is too big, it will use up valuable energy and put out excess humidity. The perfect-sized air conditioner will leave you comfortable and save you money! Single room air conditioners normally have cooling capacities ranging from 5,000 to 12,500 British Thermal Units (BTUs). Typically, an air conditioner needs 20BTU for each square foot of space. However, there are some considerations you need to take into place when making your decision. First, you need to determine the room’s exact square footage. For square and rectangular rooms: – Multiply the full length of the room by its width For triangular rooms: – Multiply the length of the area by the width and divide by two For complex-shaped rooms: – Divide the room into squares, rectangles and triangles. Then use the formulas above to determine the total square footage. Next, you can use the chart below to determine the general capacity your unit should be rated for: Area to be cooled (square feet)...View Article

Traditional heat pumps have been conditioning homes in our area for quite some time with mixed levels of user satisfaction. Heat pump systems normally use electric resistance heaters as the secondary source of comfort and can be rather costly when temperatures reach below freezing, as the heat pump unit itself becomes far less efficient as the outdoor temperature decreases. A dual fuel or hybrid system gives the user the best option to keep their home comfortable at far lower operating costs and gives greater peace of mind when opening your monthly utility statements. Install a dual fuel heat pump to your existing furnace and it will act like a high efficiency air conditioner during the summer months and also provide an inexpensive primary source of heat during the fall and winter months. Once temperatures reach below freezing, the dual fuel heat pump will tell the furnace to turn on and the heat pump will turn off so you will stay comfortable and save money no matter what time of year it is. Installing a dual fuel heat pump might be a little more expensive than installing a new Air Conditioner but a dual fuel heat pump will can pay for...View Article
Cold weather has arrived and at this point you have undoubtedly turned on your furnace to heat your home. It is important to remember that your furnace needs be checked and maintained at least once a year to make sure it is heating properly, efficiently, and safely. As temperatures continue to steadily decline in and around the Charlotte Metropolitan area, your furnace may be struggling to keep you warm. It isn’t uncommon for our trained NATE certified technicians to inspect a furnace and find clogged furnace filters, loose electrical connections, insects, rodent nests, or even safety concerns such as the rusted and cracked heat exchanger pictured above which was recently replaced. Our biggest concern we have for you and your family is your safety. When a Charlotte Comfort Systems technician inspects your furnace, we make sure there are no carbon monoxide leaks present at the time of inspection. Carbon Monoxide is often referred to as the silent killer and is the number one cause of poisoning deaths in The United States. Mild exposure to carbon monoxide includes headaches, fatigue, vomiting, and nausea. If you think your heating system may unsafe, please call Charlotte Comfort Systems as soon as possible to...View Article
