Leonard-Splaine Heating • Air Conditioning • Fuel Oil will take the mystery out of the SEER RATING. Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio rating is like the "mpg" counterpart in the automotive industry, the SEER gives you an indication of the performance efficiency of the system. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the unit. The more efficient the unit, the lower the operating costs.

- Please do not give your business to a company offering to give you an estimate over the phone without ever looking at the job to be done.
- As a well-trained, up-to-date contractor Leonard-Splaine Heating • Air Conditioning • Fuel Oil will not try to discourage you from purchasing high-efficiency equipment. Less-qualified companies may not keep their employees current with the latest technology, and therefore they may discourage you from new and better designs.
- Our estimator will do a survey of your home and base his or her proposal on a heat-load calculation (or cooling-load calculation for air conditioning).
Make sure indoor and outdoor units match
Many furnaces and central air conditioners are not properly sized for the homes they serve, because of improper sizing years ago and/or energy efficiency improvements to the building since the old equipment was installed.Leonard-Splaine Heating • Air Conditioning • Fuel Oil will explain that we use your space heating and cooling requirements to size your equipment and not your existing equipment. For instance, installing a new outdoor unit without checking to see if the indoor unit is pre-2006 may cause failure of the outdoor compressor.
Install a Programmable Thermostat
Ask us about variable speed air handlers, which will improve comfort and efficiency and allow continuous air filtering at minimum energy cost. Never use continuous ventilation when your air conditioner is in use, because it will degrade humidity control of your space.
Our estimators ask about any heating or cooling problems you have had with your old equipment, and offer understandable explanations or solutions.
Using our heat-load and/or cooling-load calculations, our technicians will be able to estimate the annual operating costs (energy bills) for the equipment they are proposing for your home or business.
We only issue a written bid (or proposal) outlining the equipment to be installed, the work to be done, and the price, including labor costs.
