Climate Design : Consumer Information

*To get the most of out of the upcoming consultation, please read the following prior to the appointment.


If you're looking to purchase a new furnace, air conditioner, or indoor comfort product, it's important that you research all your options before a contractor arrives at your home for an estimate.

Consumer Reports® surveyed over 500 specialists in residential heating and air conditioning, and they found that "the most important steps in selecting a new furnace or air conditioner is to ensure that the unit fits your needs, that it is bought from a contractor who installs it correctly, and that it's adequately maintained."  Their survey results confirmed this view: "When asked about the most common reasons for service calls, about twice as many contractors surveyed cited human error -- inadequate maintenance, for example, or improper installation -- as cited for defective equipment."

Because so much equipment in the industry is either installed incorrectly or mismatched with a consumer's needs and budget, Climate Design has put together this quick informational page so that you can get all the facts before a contractor sells you something you don't need, can't afford, or that won't work for your home.

Please watch this quick video from the Comfort Institute (a third party consumer protection group and industry training organization) about what you should expect from the estimate process as well as some of the in-home concerns you should consider before you purchase a new system.
