Our goal is for your HVAC equipment to be reliable, comfortable, and economical to run. Properly designed and high efficiency HVAC equipment can pay for itself in a short period of time through fuel savings, reliability, and not to mention tax credits and rebates that are available. Exceptional comfort alone could be the ultimate gauge in deciding to install new HVAC appliances or equipment. So let us properly install for you a new HVAC system or upgrade your current HVAC/R equipment.
HVAC installation in New Jersey involves various permits. Fire, plumbing, electrical, and building permits for HVAC upgrades are usually required and we take care of these for you.
Our NATE certification in Oil and Gas furnaces as well as in core services assures you the finest in HVAC/R. Whether your needs are in heating, cooling, ventilation and filtration, humidification, or all of the above which is air conditioning as a whole, we size the proper equipment required for installation using ACCA’s Manual J or other equivalent, and then determine your ventilation needs using ACCA’s Manual D or equivalent.
Afterwards, if you desire we can supply you the recommended HVAC equipment or buy it from the internet or wherever it is cheapest, and we will professionally install it for you in a timely and affordable manner. Incidentally, we offer a three year warranty on our labor, plus if it is a completely new HVAC installation, free annual preventive maintenance for three years.

HVAC ENCOMPASSES MANY ASPECTS OF A BUILDING'S PERFORMANCE ENVELOPE (BPI)
Efficiency of the HVAC equipment being used for AC cooling and heating, insulated piping and hot water heating, leak free and insulated duct work, appropriate chimney liner, along with good indoor air quality are just a few of the aspects that encompass HVAC. So how do you proceed in going about the right way with HVAC/R? Well a good place to start whether using fuel oil, propane gas, natural gas, electricity, or an alternative energy source is with an energy efficiency audit.
In an energy efficiency audit of a house or a building, it begins by finding out where leakage and loss of energy is emanating from. Current Weatherization technology used in an energy audit is with a blower door and an infrared thermal imaging camera.
When a blower door is used all windows are closed, the HVAC shut off, and other ventilation openings to the outside closed. With the building completely closed the regular door is replaced by the blower door and the place is pressurized by having the air exhausted or evacuated from the premises. A smoke pencil similar to an incense stick is used to determine which direction leakage is coming from. You would be surprised that a small hole in the wall and air from the outside could cause such an energy leak. This is because in a regular house and all the way up to a tall building, a chimney effect takes place, accelerating the speed of air leakage through this small hole. There are many small holes in a home hidden to the untrained eye and masked by un-insulated on un-sealed electrical openings, plumbing openings, areas around the chimney, etc. Sealing these holes that leak energy through the attic and roof via "The Chimney Effect" is a cost effective way of dealing with energy loss in HVAC.
Using a thermal imaging is another way to complement the use of blower door technology. When there is a temperature difference between indoors and out especially if it is a substantial one, an infrared thermal camera will detect warm and cold spots. It will show where insulation is required and where it is not needed. If a thermal imaging camera is utilized with a blower door properly, an unsurpassable result in energy auditing is the outcome. Use this audit result in weatherizing your home or business and it will result in a comfortable and cost effective HVAC environment.
Weatherization based on the result of blower door testing combined with infrared thermal imaging gives a more precise picture as to where air leaks should be sealed and insulation installed. Typically in a residential home or building, insulation is installed in ceilings, walls, around light fixtures, and where the chimney effect of escaping energy can be stopped. Mobile homes, house trailers, or static caravans require insulation underneath plus the same insulation principle used in regular houses. At handy Men of America Inc were are trained and certified in energy efficiency using conservation measures and the highly efficient use of many different sources of energy that includes Oil, Gas, Solar Electric, Solar Thermal, and Geothermal.
Many other aspects encompasses HVAC however, and equipment sizing is one of them. It is very important that a properly sized heating unit and/or AC cooling of an HVAC system be properly sized. An AC cooling unit that is undersized will not provide enough cooling and an oversized AC cooling unit will cycle on/off more frequently causing premature wear on the HVAC equipment. Furthermore, the bad thing about oversized AC cooling is that the humidity level is not addressed properly and it makes the environment cold and humid rather than comfortable. With oversized heating, the heating equipment cycles on/off without the unit reaching operating temperature, wasting energy and creating soot especially in the case of oil fired HVAC equipment. You want HVAC equipment or AC appliances to be properly sized using ACCA's Manual J or similar measure in configuring the correct cooling and heating requirements. HVAC rebates on AC cooling equipment in New Jersey are contingent upon proper sizing using Manual J, and it must be within +/- 15% of its result.
Ventilation utilizing ACCA's Manual D to configure proper ducting requirements is another very important part of HVAC. If the supply air and return air is not correctly balanced it doesn't matter even if you have the best HVAC equipment installed. At best you will have only mediocre performance. Proper fabrication, insulation, humidification/de-humidification, and air filtration of HVAC duct work is essential for maximum comfort and energy efficiency. Why not let us create the proper heating and AC cooling duct combination for you.
HVAC INDOOR AIR QUALITY - MOLD REMOVAL & REMEDIATION - LEAD SAFE RRP - ASBESTOS AWARENESS
We all know about the deadly long term effects of asbestos which is common in HVAC piping and in other areas of housing as well as school buildings and workplaces, but how about the common mold?
Many a times a school or building will intermittently shut off the AC during the summer or the weekend to save money only to find out that the mold has multiplied at a dangerous level. They then also shockingly find out that it would now require much more in expense than money saved to remove the mold created and the inconvenience of closing the business or postponement of school opening by shutting off the HVAC to save energy. But this is only a manifestation of an underlying problem that needs to be resolved and may not be necessarily HVAC or Air Conditioning related.
What is mold? Mold is a generic term for fungal growth. Excessive mold growth inside a home, school, or workplace can cause different types of symptoms or reactions: red itchy skin or rash; acute attacks of coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and in rare cases - tightness in chest, difficulty breathing, cough & fever, muscle aches; others include runny nose, scratchy throat, sinus congestion and irritated eyes. We have the expertise to determine a mold source and its recommended fix . Below are images of what mold can do to a person:
When HVAC is not up to standard it produces SBS (Sick Building Syndrome). Some of SBS causes could be: HVAC ventilation not meeting ASHRAE standard; building exhaust re-entrainment; inadequate air filtration - high particulates; high concentrations of volatiles; fungal growth near air intake; fungal growth on building materials; or Toxicosis from microbial contamination of HVAC system (i.e.: Legionnaires Disease).
IAQ (indoor air quality) is an important part of HVAC. Companies can be fined by the EPA up to $37,500 per violation of the RRP rule (left). But when it comes to mold contamination there is no rule, and its health effects can be devastating (center). Special equipment (right) is sometimes necessary to isolate and monitor mold and other contaminants, while knowledge and common sense dictates its root source and rectification in an HVAC environment.
Mold contamination is caused by moisture in the indoor environment or through fungal growth near the air intake, and we at Handymen of America are trained and certified in Indoor Air Quality to deal with mold removal and remediation. We are also licensed in Plumbing; certified in Lead Safety for Renovation, Repair, and Painting; NATE HVAC/R (North American Technician Excellence) certified in installing and servicing Oil Furnaces; and NATE HVAC/R certified as well in installation and servicing of Gas furnaces. When it comes time to convert from fuel oil to natural gas, try our complementary Oil to Gas Conversion Analysis, free of charge. Allow us to explain to you why converting from fuel oil to gas can save you money now and in the long term. The use of Fuel-less heating based on Renewable Green Energy along with highly efficient cooling will also lower your energy costs. Allow our vast knowledge in HVAC to help you make informed decisions when it comes to safety, comfort and efficiency.
