Is your heating and air system on its last leg and barely limping along? If you’re considering replacing your current heating and cooling system, make sure you have a reliable company provide you with an estimate. During a complimentary in-home evaluation with O’Brien, finding a perfect system for your home will be a piece of cake. Below, we’ll discuss what to expect during a complimentary in-home evaluation by O’Brien Service Company.
What to Expect
First off, from start to finish, your in-home evaluation will take on average about two hours. Initially, you can discuss any issues you’re experiencing with your current system. For example, certain rooms do not heat or cool as well as others, or if there are any indoor air quality concerns. On the other hand, if you’re unsure of what else to ask your Comfort Specialist, here is a list on Trane’s website of questions to ask.
Next, your Comfort Specialist will address the load calculation once they have finished the room-by-room measurements and the inspection of your current system and ductwork.
Overall, the importance of getting an in-home evaluation is to prevent installing the wrong-sized system in your home. For this reason, we do not provide ballpark estimates.
Above, we mentioned the Comfort Specialist will address the load calculation during your in-home evaluation. This step is important because a load calculation determines what size system your home will need. Ultimately, a big factor in the load calculation is the size of your home. However, there are other influences as well:
- How many windows are in your home
- The direction your home is facing
- Ceiling heights
- Insulation quality
- The material that went into building your home
- And more
Your heating and air system may experience problems if the wrong size system is installed. Additionally, it will not be able to keep your home as comfortable compared to a properly sized system. A load calculation is something you should expect during a complimentary in-home evaluation. If a company does not perform one, you might want to contact another company for a second estimate.
Our comfort consultants will be able to recommend a few options for new systems that will work for your home. These systems will vary based on their SEER (efficiency rating). Also, they’ll explain the warranties offered and go over the pricing of each system. Current financing promotions can be discussed and if needed they’ll help you apply for financing.

“Mike R. is an excellent Design Specialist, professional, knowledgeable and courteous. What he recommended and clearly outlined for us was exactly what occurred with an excellent outcome. We are very satisfied with all the quality checks and balances they performed to ensure we are completely satisfied. After performing a home load calculation, he recommended a lower ton unit which is more energy efficient and cost saving. No other company even offered to do this. The unit is working fantastic and in 92 degree/humid weather, we have the thermostat at 78 and very comfortable. I don’t have to turn on my ceiling fans anymore! The humidity control, quiet operation and constant/even temperature throughout the house is wonderful. Having worked in quality control, I would definitely rate O’Brien a leader in Heating and Air Conditioning and recommend them highly. Our inspections passed with flying colors. I love the perk of the Duke rebates and the neighborhood referral so please private message me if you have any further questions. As they say, “it’s hard to stop a Trane” and O’Brien is definitely in the driver’s seat” -Susan S. (Wilmington 28411)
