As parts of the U.S. swelter under intense record-setting heat waves this summer, homes with inadequate cooling and heating systems are pushed to the breaking point. This climate trend may lead to more and more homeowners seeking “increased comfort” as a top priority on their home improvement wish list. 

At our Model ReModel 2022, Symbi Homes has engaged an expert HVAC contractor and the professionals at Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US to completely revamp the heating and cooling systems of their 19th-century Victorian home, as well as installing a new system for the home’s 850 square foot  in-law suite addition.

“There are many factors that contribute to the thermal moisture comfort of a home, but none more significant than a properly designed mechanical system,” explains Symbi Homes CEO Nicole Tysvaer. “And to ensure proper sizing and location of equipment, we rely on our HVAC contractor to provide an accurate Manual J, D, and S.”
