New Construction HVACHovland’s is very involved with the new construction industry. We work with many building contractors in the Chippewa Valley. Our role with these builders is to design and install complete residential heating and cooling systems, including the ductwork, for all types of housing – single family homes, duplexes, town homes, apartment complexes and community development projects. Our staff is qualified and skilled, not just in the installation of the equipment, but we have experience and knowledge in airflow design and troubleshooting.
We also work on basement finishes, additions, and remodels, can provide both supply and return air ductwork to new rooms, are able to install and vent bath fans and dryer vents, and can even provide shop equipment ventilation.
We are always looking for new builders to work with. We will work with large-scale track homebuilders, smaller scale custom homebuilders, or the basement finish and remodel contractor. If you’re thinking about building a new home or remodeling your existing home, give Hovland’s a call – you’ll be happy you did.
Equipment Sizing & Installation
As much as half of the energy used in an average home is for heating and cooling. Making informed decisions about your home’s heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) system can have a dramatic impact on your utility bills – and your comfort.
Whether you’re replacing heating and cooling equipment in your home or planning the installation of equipment in a new home, choosing energy-efficient products is a good place to start. However, making certain your new equipment is sized properly and installed correctly is equally important to ensure that it performs efficiently and provides the level of comfort you expect.
When it comes to heating and cooling equipment, bigger isn’t always better. A unit sized too large for your home, may result in discomfort and unnecessary cost. Oversized equipment will operate in short run times or cycles, not allowing the unit to reach efficient operation. An oversized air conditioning unit may cool the temperature in your home rapidly, but will not run long enough to remove humidity from the air.
Some contractors simply assume that the size of your new system will be the same as your old equipment. Quite often though, the capacity of your new equipment does not need to be as big as your old equipment since it operates much more efficiently. Also, alterations or improvements may have been made to your home since the original equipment was installed or the equipment may have been too large from the start. At Hovland’s, we do a thorough inspection and evaluation for every individual installation so that we install the proper equipment size and efficiency for your needs. We perform a heat loss/gain calculation to be as accurate as possible in sizing your new HVAC system.
