HVAC and Plumbing FAQs

You may have specific questions we already have answers for. Please take a look at our FAQs below and as always, don’t hesitate to contact us with any other questions or concerns: (484) 516-1017.

WHAT IS THE AVERAGE LIFE EXPECTANCY ON EQUIPMENT?

Most systems vary between 10 to 20 years. As the equipment ages, its efficiency can decrease dramatically, so you can either keep repairing it or replace it with a newer system that might have more energy-efficient equipment.

WILL A BIGGER SIZED SYSTEM PERFORM BETTER?

No, though you may have the “bigger the better” mentality, having an air conditioner that is actually too big for your property is not beneficial. It will, indeed, heat up your home faster, however, it will use more energy and not remove humidity adequately.

WHAT DOES A HEATING & COOLING LOAD CALCULATION DETERMINE?

Load calculation will determine the proper tonnage you will need to deliver comfort to your home, including even temperatures throughout the home, which result in a comfortable atmosphere. Load calculations take into consideration ceiling heights, window sizes and styles (single/double pain), window locations (east, west), door styles, insulation in the home, flooring and more. This allows for the correct sizing of your system to meet the needs of the home.

WHY IS IT NECESSARY TO PERFORM COOLING & HEATING LOAD CALCULATIONS IN MY HOME?

Nice and Cool, Inc. performs load calculations on every home. In order to correctly and properly size and design a system that will best fit your home, a load calculation must be performed. This will deliver total comfort to the home owner. Every home is different; therefore it is required to do the load calculation to ensure the absolute best results.
