The Basics: Complete Home Heating and Cooling System

High–efficiency systems are engineered and installed to deliver more comfort, better moisture control, improved indoor air quality and quieter operation. Check out this interesting fact sheet from Energy Star to learn more about a complete heating and cooling system.

Heating and cooling systems can cost a homeowner more than $1,000 — more than half of the total energy bill. A properly functioning and efficient home comfort system should  provide cooled or heated air. It should keep you comfortable and provide better moisture control, improved indoor air quality, and quieter operation as efficiently as possible. This can be done by ensuring your HVAC system is installed properly.

New homes that meet Energy Star guidelines require proper installation of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) equipment. This is verified through two detailed installation checklists, helping your system run more efficiently and saving you money utility bills. Energy Star builder partners work with credentialed HVAC contractors who are responsible for completing and signing a quality installation checklist. Home energy raters then verify the system’s installation through completion of their own checklist that involves quality inspections and tests. This helps ensure your system was designed specifically for your new home so you can be confident that it is functioning efficiently.
