HVAC contractors supported by Comfort Institute “go beyond the box” to diagnose and solve, IAQ and comfort problems. They have invested in the training and diagnostic instruments needed, have become air distribution system and thermal envelope specialists, and understand that “The House Is An Interactive System”.
These contractors can solve comfort problems other contractors can’t. They know the best ways to make hot and cold spots comfortable, such as rooms over garages, second floor bedrooms, or cold and drafty TV rooms. They know how to control humidity year round.
They can also solve IAQ problems other contractors cannot. They know why new filters and duct cleaning often don’t reduce visible dust, and what needs to be done to really make a difference. They can diagnose and solve carbon monoxide and back-drafting problems. They have learned how to put the V (ventilation) back into residential HVAC.
In addition they know how to install new high efficiency equipment so that it operates at the rated performance. How to properly size new equipment, and solve pre-existing duct and thermal envelope problems. They know how to ensure new equipment actually saves money on utility bills.
In short they have evolved into Total Comfort Contractors. This provides a powerful Unique Competitive Advantage over 99% of the contractors in the industry.
