The positioning of your heating and cooling equipment can make a big difference in both comfort and in the energy efficiency. Centrally located equipment will have less work to do to move the heated or cooled air throughout the house. Centrally located equipment also provides heated or cooled air more evenly throughout the house. Your level of comfort will increase by mitigating the possibility of having cooler or warmer rooms while you save money on your heating and cooling cost throughout the year. Whether the heating and cooling equipment is placed in a basement or crawl space, or in an attic, or even outside your home, you can plan and design for central positioning. Central placement will also save money on installation by keeping all ducts to the shortest possible lengths. This attention to detail in planning and design will provide years of comfort and savings.
