Keeping your home comfortable during the hottest or coldest times of the year can be a challenge. Sometimes one room isn’t as comfortable as the others, or maybe a whole floor doesn’t seem to be the same temperature as the rest of the house. That was the case for a master bedroom in the Haverford, PA Cape Cod style home. A new air conditioning system was needed, because the room just wasn’t staying cool, and it was evident during a heat wave in August. With a new Carrier air conditioner and an Aprilaire humidifier, we made sure this room was going to be a nice place to sleep.
The owner knew there was an issue in the master bedroom, and gave us a call to check it out. It was evident that this room wasn’t being properly cooled, so we looked out their current situation to see what could be causing this issue. We noticed that the ductwork was causing a loss in velocity of the air being pushed through the vents to the bedroom. We noticed that air velocity was being lost to 90-degree turns (as you can see in the picture on the right) and bad transition ductwork from the air outlet of the heating and cooling system to the duct system. We decided to alter the ductwork to improve the airflow. Our custom metal was made to fit perfectly on the air outlet side of the HVAC system, replaced the 90-degree turn (which kills airflow) with a 45-degree turn, and transition down to the usable original duct work.
The homeowner also wanted a new heating and cooling system. Since we were fixing the comfort issues, they decided they wanted to have this completely taken care of for years to come. We installed a brand new Carrier Infinity heating and cooling system. Carrier Infinity systems are top of the line and specialize in energy efficiency. Most people associate the cost of their HVAC system with the price tag to install it. They don’t account for the energy it’s going to use over the 10+ year lifespan it has. If your system isn’t efficient, it’s going to cost you a fortune in energy bills over the years. Carrier Infinity systems make sure these bills don’t go through the roof, and also make less on an impact on the environment.
