Our homeowners in Elgin, IL first called us because they thought they needed a new air conditioner. They were right: The old condenser in this house was on the way out. But, after speaking with them, we realized they had more than just cooling on their minds.
It turned out that the air conditioner was never really able to keep them comfortable in the summer. It had just gotten much worse over the past few years.
On top of that, their electric bill was getting higher each year. Not only did they want to cut down that expense, but it also got them thinking about how much energy they wasted.
Was it possible to address all these concerns with one quick install?
With the Daikin Fit system, the answer was, “Yes!”
In this case study, we’ll cover:
And, if you’re looking for quiet, energy-efficient air conditioning that can keep your Fox River Valley home exceptionally comfortable in the winter along with the summer, call or email Compass Heating and Air for a free consultation.
Soon, our homeowners were also mentioning how cold the house would get in the winter. At least then they could bundle up. The summers were worse, so they were only concerned with the AC at the moment.
But, what if they could handle both at the same time?
A Daikin Fit heat pump would address all these concerns and more. These do a better job of circulating and maintaining a constant temperature. If we went dual-zone, the upstairs could finally get the treatment it needed.
And, on top of all that, our homeowners could finally reduce their electric bill in the summer — and they’d use less natural gas in the winter!
Even though the heat pumps would run longer, they wouldn’t use nearly as much power as their old AC and gas furnace. When these heat pumps run at a low speed, it uses almost no electricity at all.
And, once it’s maintaining the setting, it rarely has to get up to full speed. And, the improved technology means better performance overall.
Older heat pumps couldn’t handle the lows you get during a Northern Illinois winter. But, the Daikin Fit can keep heating and lower temperatures than older models. And, it hooks up to a gas furnace.
That way, our homeowners will automatically switch to gas heat when the temperature really drops. The system toggles on its own from heat pump to furnace.
So, our homeowners know they’re always warm and comfy — and they’re using the least amount of power possible. That means lower utility bills in the winter and summer.
