Florida is not the kind of place where you'd want to be without air conditioning for very long, so when Chris Marriner's old system died last spring, he didn't waste much time in replacing it. But what should have been a ticket to indoor comfort hasn't exactly worked out that way.
Marriner's HVAC(Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning). Collectively, the mechanical systems that heat, ventilate, and cool a building. technician decided to replace the 4-ton system with one of the same capacity, even though Marriner knew that because of improvements to the building envelopeExterior components of a house that provide protection from colder (and warmer) outdoor temperatures and precipitation; includes the house foundation, framed exterior walls, roof or ceiling, and insulation, and air sealing materials. the new system probably would be oversized for the 2200-square-foot home. The tech told Marriner the system could be "tuned."
