This two-story colonial in the Cobbler’s Crossing neighborhood of Elgin, IL had comfort problems for years. The master bedroom never seemed to be comfortable. The owners contacted us thinking they needed a heater repair. After extensive diagnostics, we determined that a heater repair was not the answer at all. We found that the gas furnace was operating perfectly, it was just not big enough for the house.
The homeowners decided to replace their original heating and cooling system due to the age, but they wanted to be sure their master bedroom with vaulted ceilings would be as comfortable as the rest of the house. They were not interested in converting from a gas furnace to a heat pump, so I introduced them to Daikin’s new VRV Life system, which enables us to add a ductless heat pump to a gas furnace for maximum flexibility and comfort.
Problem: Aging heating and cooling system needed to be replaced, but homeowners wanted to solve underlying comfort problems, especially in the master bedroom, at the same time.
Solution: A New Daikin VRV LIFE system with a modulating gas furnace, variable speed inverter heat pump and a wall-mounted ductless system for the master bedroom will ensure the whole home is perfectly comfortable year-round.
