Basic Information
Replaced 2 heat pumps and 2 gas furnaces (backup heat) and air handlers. In addition, they installed an additional cool air return and increased the duct size to the far end of the 2nd floor where air flow was poor. Also installed internet connected thermostats so that I can monitor and control house temperature away from the house. We bought this house 2 years ago and it was built in 1993. Its a big house, 5200 sq ft, and has to units, one to heat/cool the 1st floor and the second to handle the second/third floors. The heating and cooling has been very inconsistent throughout the house and in the far 2nd floor bedrooms totally inadequate. We have had several contractors and quot;analyzeand quot; how to fix the problem, but it wasn't until Earthwise did they consider fixing the air flow in the house. This was a particularly difficult house since there is no access to the attic space. Ultimately Earthwise recommended that we add a cool air return to the far end of the house that required some cutting into attic space drywall, ducting it, and making the ducting to the far bedrooms larger. This worked perfectly. The new units that were installed are quiet and very efficient. In fact with the better ducting we went from 5 ton units to 4 ton units and they work perfectly. This house that I had almost given up on to be truly comfortable throughout the house is now working like it should thanks to Earthwise. Having just went thru some of our hottest weather I can tell you how pleased I am. We'll see when we hit winter, but I don't expect to be unpleasantly surprised. The workers were prompt, courteous and very friendly. The work was not easy since they needed to crawl through small spaces. We are very happy with the end result and can't recommend Earthwise highly enough. What I liked is they solved the problem rather than just saying I needed new units. I knew I needed new units, and they gave me the best price of anyone, but that they solved the whole problem for me.
