Air Conditioning & Heating

Is your HVAC equipment more than 10 years old? Is your system keeping your house comfortable? Are you thinking of replacing your air conditioning unit? Brite would love to help you select and purchase your next investment in your home’s comfort system. Choosing the right system and company to install your system will help save you time and money in the long run.

Brite offers a free in-home estimate on replacing your unit. When we come to your home or office, we will take measurements, look at your existing ductwork, and discuss the usage of space and personal preferences in heating and cooling. Our goal is always, to install the right size equipment and manufacturer for your needs.

Installing the right size equipment for your home or office is essential to getting the best performance and comfort. Many people believe that bigger is better, but this is not always the case. A system that is not sized correctly can put stress on the system components and shorten the equipment’s life (Energy Star, 2009).

Once your sizing needs have been determined it is time for you to make a choice on which type of system you would like to invest in.

Here are some things to think about when selecting your next air conditioning unit:

1.  Select a brand name that you trust. The bigger and better known brands will often have a better reputation for quality and reliability, which is how they have grown to be recognized. Look at the manufacturer warranties offered - do they back their products and for how long? What type of quality assessments does the manufacturer perform? How long has the brand name been around? And what do they stand for?

Brite sells and services a variety of products, including brand names like Trane, Rheem, Goodman, Amana and Lennox.

2.  Solicit Recommendations. Talk to your friends and neighbors ask which contractors they have used and what products they own and why.

3.  Look for Third Party Endorsements. Are the products that you are looking at rated by independent companies, government agencies or consumer groups? These entities have nothing to gain by praising a particular product. Some third party endorsements to look at may include:

- EPA’s Energy Star
- EPA’s Green Seal
- Consumer Reports
