Below is a picture of a high-efficiency Trane central air conditioning installation. The existing system was aging and beginning to have mechanical failures each summer. 16 years was a good service life for the previous builder model unit. The customer needed a system that would last 20+ years as they wanted to stay in the home for at least that long. They were retired and needed an AC installation that would require little to no repairs over the years. High efficiency was the third priority. We provide solutions that take care of their needs, and the benefits far outweigh the initial investment. With a 10-year parts and labor warranty, these customers could rest assured that, even if their central air conditioner installation does decide to take a break, the repairs are already covered!

 

This was the indoor portion of the system.
 

Installing an air filtration system that could take care of the older home (and its loose construction) was a top priority. Allergies were not part of the equation. We provided a middle-of-the-road solution that would remove a majority of the dust and keep the system clean for many years to come. Installing a larger return duct plenum was also a necessity to guarantee adequate airflow. Lack of airflow will decrease the performance of the new system and increase the likelihood of failures due to overheating, fast-cycling, and excessive electrical draw on the motors.

A brand new AC installation that was completed by our technician in Boise, Idaho

This was a complete system renovation and overhaul located in Boise’s downtown historic district. The old furnace and air conditioner had been in service for over 30 years, and, throughout multiple changes over the decades, many components were left untouched, although still in operation. The old oil fuel delivery lines were still hooked up to the external tank. An old coal shoot through an abandoned chimney was left uncovered and allowing drafty air to circulate throughout the home all year long. We took a broader approach with this project because the homeowner wanted to take care of the house additions, as well. A third-story master bed/bath was always warm, especially during the summer because the previous company never took proper installation methods and long-term integrity into account. Adding ductwork would have been a good option – but not a complete resolution. We had to provide return air for the space as well to assist with drawing more air to such a long run.

We removed ducting where it was no longer needed from a powder room located in the center of the main level. We increased the supply and the return ducting in order to add more capacity and volume to the airflow. Increasing the size of the cooling system meant increasing power supply. With our solutions, the homeowner now has even and complete comfort throughout the basement and all the 3 stories of the home! What a fun project for our team!

Here is a picture of the furnace located in the center of the basement:

Relocation to a corner opened up the entire basement where it had been largely unusable! Imagine that!
