When it comes time to replace your system, Environmental Heating and Air Solutions can assist you in choosing the best indoor comfort system options for your home.

Part of our process of ensuring you are getting the right system for your home includes doing a load calculation and airflow analysis. Taking into consideration the measurement of the rooms and windows, the amount of attic insulation, and measurement the return and supply grills allow for us to properly suggest the right size equipment for your home’s needs.

There are many questions homeowners might ask themselves when looking into replacement options that may help us determine what would suit you best in your home.

After a hot spell our heat pump was no longer able to cool our house. Based on Yelp reviews I started calling vendors. Environmental was the second place I called, and they were able to come out the same day, so we went with them. The technician arrived promptly, was tidy and courteous. I described the symptoms and he quickly identified the problems. After replacing a blown capacitor he was able to demonstrate that the refrigerant level was slightly low, and patiently explained all the ways this could have happened and how it would make a difference to properly balance the levels. He estimated 2-3 lbs but was able to bring the system up to spec with 1.5 lbs. Very satisfied with the service and they guarantee their work for a year.
