Home Comfort Systems

What is a Home Comfort System?

It used to be homeowners were concerned with individual appliances, such as the furnace or air conditioner. Today, your home is seen as an environmental system, and what once were treated as individual concerns are now seen as a complete “Home Comfort System.”

A Home Comfort System is comprised of four elements: Cooling, Heating, Air Treatment, and Air Distribution. Proper equipment selection and good design combine these four into an energy efficient system that:

  • Cools and dehumidifies in summer,
  • Heats and humidifies in winter, and
  • Cleans your indoor air all year around.

Home Cooling

The efficiency of home cooling equipment is defined by Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) standards. Higher numbers mean greater efficiency and less energy consumption. Cooling equipment also has Sound Ratio Numbers (SRN's) to define quiet operation.

Air conditioning equipment which is over ten years old operated at SEER's 5.0 - 6.0 range.

Today's Carrier home cooling equipment provides you with:

  • SEER Ratings among the highest of any in the industry
  • Quick, easy replacement of older, inefficient equipment regardless of brand
  • Dramatically reduced energy bills
  • Extremely quiet operation
  • Longer life and trouble-free operation

Home Heating

Like old cooling units, old furnaces are very inefficient. A typical furnace from the 1970s, for example, may operate at around 60% efficiency or less. Carrier's new furnaces can bring your home:

  • Efficiencies among the highest of any heating product
  • Easy replacement of any brand older model
  • Quiet, trouble-free operation
  • Compact, space saving design
  • Extended warranty protection

Home Air Treatment

To be complete, a Home Comfort System should include: Winter humidification and air cleaning superior to the minimal benefits offered by ordinary furnace filters.

A Carrier Total Comfort System will:

  • Humidify dry indoor air to improve comfort, keep furnishings in better condition, reduce static electricity
  • Remove up to 90% of the smoke, dust, dirt and pollens found in the air, relieving allergy sufferers, reducing cleaning and protecting furnishings.

Air Distribution

Proper air distribution is vital to the satisfactory operation and service life of any forced air indoor comfort system.

Air is distributed by the blower through ducts to rooms in your home. It is then removed by return ducts to the blower. Air circulation within your home, the essential element of comfort, is determined by the size and shape of the ducts and the location of the openings or registers, which deliver the air, and the grilles that withdraw the air.

At Mullen, our experienced designers and installers make certain that:

  • Ducts properly shaped and sized for correct air delivery to every room
  • Grilles and registers sized and positioned for best operating efficiency
  • All system components properly matched

Carrier Comfort System can incorporate zoning of air distribution to permit:

  • Individual area comfort settings
  • Shutting off air to unused areas
  • Delivery of the correct air volume to each zone
  • Improved energy efficiency to your entire system
  • When it comes to indoor comfort, Mullen has the experts to contact for quality design, installation and service that matches the quality of your new Carrier equipment.
