When their old Tempstar furnace failed, the Paine's in Kirkland decided it was better to replace it, and improve their comfort and efficiency, rather than to make the costly repairs that were required. The Paine's chose a Trane XV95 variable speed, 2-stage gas furnace. This 95% efficient furnace provides excellent comfort with multiple gas output levels and gentle air circulation for even heating.

When the compressor died on their 13-year-old air conditioner in the middle of the summer, the Weiler's in Redmond, WA wanted AC fast!

When the Britts moved to their new home, they knew they would miss the comfort and energy savings that the high efficiency furnace we installed in their previous home provided.

When the heat exchangers failed on their existing furnace, the Heywoods in Woodinville, WA were left with a dangerous situation that could introduce deadly carbon monoxide into their home. Faced with a choice of repairing the old furnace, or upgrading to a more comfortable and more energy efficient system, they chose to upgrade. The Heywoods selected a hybrid heating and cooling system featuring a York modulating gas furnace and heat pump. They also chose to proactively replace their aging water heater at the same time - receiving a better value by doing it all at once.
Unlike many other things you can purchase for your home, the results you get from your heating or cooling system has as much, or more, to do with how it is installed, as with what brand or model you purchase. A furnace or air conditioner is not like a refrigerator, stove, or washer and dryer - You can't just plug them in, hook them up, and expect them to work right! As the Lang's in Issaquah, WA found, there is a right way, and a wrong way to install a comfort system.
