Q: Is a bigger furnace or air
A: No it is not. Bigger is not always better in the HVAC
industry. A larger air conditioner uses more electricity and
costs more to purchase, install and upkeep. A properly sized
unit will provide the most efficient energy use and most
comfort in your home. When buying a home comfort system,
selecting the right size is crucial. For instance, an air
conditioner that is too large will cool your home quickly
but you still may not feel comfortable. It will satisfy the
thermostat before it can remove sufficient moisture from the
air. However, a system that is too small just cannot get the
job done. As Trane Comfort Specialists, we can help you
determine the right size system for your home comfort needs.

Q: Why are furnaces and air conditioners so noisy?
