How the Housing Boom Led to Improper Installation of Heating & Cooling Equipment

“I bought this house because I thought that a new house is better than an old house. It had granite counter tops and hardwood floors. It looked nice when I bought it, but now I’m not so sure.”

We find that a lot of our customers don’t understand why a new house could have so many problems!

The housing boom is a big part of the reason, because your home may have been built to meet only the minimum housing code requirements. Builders couldn’t build houses fast enough during the housing boom. Unfortunately, fast doesn’t mean done right!

According to a nationwide Angie’s List poll, there were widespread issues with homes built between 1997-2007, including:

1. Improperly sized heating and cooling systems
2. Bad roofing jobs
3. Improper insulation
4. Dangerous electrical wiring
5. Plumbing problems

If you own a home built during the housing boom, or are considering buying one, hire a reputable contractor who cares about your safety, not just about the job. A contractor can offer you guidance on the best way to improve issues with your home.

A home comfort system is a large but necessary expense. You get what you pay for so it makes sense to do your homework. Check reviews! Are warranties available? Are your technicians knowledgeable in all things related to heating and cooling?

CMR Mechanical has the experience, knowledge, and skills necessary to service and repair all brands of HVAC systems for your home or business. Call us today at (734) 424-9555 to schedule a “$99 Clean and Check Inspection” with one of our heating and cooling Ann Arbor technicians.
