services for Northwest Indiana
Would you like “warm as toast” comfort in the winter, cool (“cool as a cucumber” – just joking!!!) refreshing air in the summer, clean healthy air year around, rock-bottom energy bills, and peace of mind reliability? This is what our goal is when we begin to design a new HVAC system for you.
We begin by performing a Manual J load calculation on your home to determine the exact size of equipment your home needs based on many factors including, but not limited to, required ASHRAE Standard 62 ventilation rates for healthy air, R-values and square footage of walls, roof, and floor, window sizes and direction they face, among other factors.
Once this is determined, we provide you with customized solutions on different system options to meet your comfort, budget, filtration, and energy efficiency needs.
When your selections are made we design a custom-fabricated duct system that is not only sized for proper delivery of air at a whisper quiet sound level, but is also designed to deliver the proper amount of air to designated areas within the home to prevent temperature differentials.
We do not purchase pre-fabricated duct for your home that other companies use, which forces them into installation practices unacceptable to Kent’s Quality Standards and accepted industry standards. Our duct designs allow the furnace blower to operate at or above factory specifications. This means less premature heat exchanger failures, less energy used, and decreased blower motor failures due to undersized ductwork.
Once the design is approved, it's time for the installation in a timely, professional manner. We work with you to coordinate our installation with the other trades building your home, and work to deliver the finest new construction installations in the area.
Once the furnace and evaporator coil are set in place, our technicians custom-fabricate 100% of your duct system in our fully outfitted sheet metal shop, then install the custom-fabricated duct system in your home. We highly recommend a Kent exclusive high-performance duct system, which is sealed with high quality duct sealant (mastic) to prevent unhealthy, energy wasting infiltration. All ductwork in unconditioned areas is insulated and sealed with the latest materials for maximum energy efficiency. We do not use ineffective duct tape or aluminum tape to seal our duct systems.
If an unusual routing of the duct is necessary, our technicians fabricate custom fittings other companies can’t/don’t know how to make as required to complete a professional job that delivers proper amounts of clean and conditioned air where you need it. We don’t take “shortcuts” with inexpensive prefabricated fittings that choke air flow and create noise that other companies must use.
Our technicians clean their work area daily once work is completed so a safe, professional job site is maintained for you.
