In today's society, the homeowner wants to be pampered - and there is no better to pamper yourself from the heat than by installing some kind of air conditioning system.
Deciding on how to heat your home will affect comfort, energy costs, air quality and the safety of a home for years to come. Since it's a costly installation to any new home it makes good economic sense to look carefully at energy efficiency. Heating alone can account for more than 40 percent of your household energy costs, for larger homes and families, it's as high as 65 percent.
