Dr. Fear
There are many companies in the telephone book making all sorts of claims. Over the last 40 years, we've seen more than a few "claim" themselves right out of business.

Yet, during that time, we've happily continued to serve the heating and cooling needs of this area. As of today, we have provided air conditioning/heating service and installations to thousands of customers in the Low Country. Our success is due to a great staff, a few sound business principles, lots of technical training, and an honest desire to please. These have become the "Hallmarks of Marke's".

Warmest Regards,
Jack Davis, Founder

Air Distribution Systems

Leaky Duct Tests/ Pressurization/ Duct Blast
The home's air distribution system; the equipment, ducting, boots, take-offs, etc. are isolated. A variable speed fan pressurizes the system from the return grille to the each and every supply register. This simulates the same path air would take from the time it leaves the home until it comes back out.

Air Distribution System(s) Inspections
The home's air distribution system; the equipment, ducting, boots, take-offs, etc. are inspected for leakage, installation standards, and the interior of the duct system is checked for dust, dirt, and other stains. The unit's efficiency is measured. The air distribution systems return leakage is checked. The A variable speed fan pressurizes the system from the return grille to the each and every supply register. This simulates the same path air would take from the time it leaves the home until it comes back out.

Whole House Tests

Inflotrometer - Leaky House Test
The home is depressurized. The amount of air removed from the home will tell how tight it was constructed. If the home were sealed tight like a rubber balloon then it would require very little air to reach the depressurization point. The accepted standard is 1CFM50/sqare foot. If a home were 2,750sq. ft. then it should have no more than 2,750CFM50 infiltration.

Home's Heating and Cooling Requirement Calculations
The home's various building components are modeled in a computer simulation. The number and size of windows, homes area, ceiling height, occupants, appliances, orientation, insulation and many other factors are consideredand assessed to determine the size of the heating and cooling system.

Duct Design
After the unit's size is determined it's capacity is distributed through out the home. A large room with large windows and skylights which capture the evening sun will need more capacity than the interior hall powder room. We design an air distribution system that will ensure +/-3° through out the home.

IAQ Survey
We assess the home's equipment capacity, air filtration, limited home leakage factors, and air distribution system.

Model: The R-22 Phase Out
R-22, along with several other chemicals, has been shown to deplete the ozone layer, which protects us from harmful UV radiation. In 1990, the United States worked with the global community to protect the environment by phasing out the supply and use of these ozone depleting compounds. The phase out started in 1996 with CFCs and it will be complete by 2020 for HCFC R-22 that is used in air-conditioning and refrigeration. The phase out is being enforced via an EPA program (under the terms of the Clean Air Act) that issues production and consumption rights. One right equals one kilogram of R-22 supply. The EPA will limit the amount of R-22 that is available for use in refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment by lowering the amount of R-22 consumption rights over time.
RECENT CHANGES
At the 20th Anniversary meeting of the Montreal Protocol, the U.S., along with other signatory nations, agreed to accelerate the phase out of HCFCs by lowering the 2010 limit by an additional 10%.
WHAT THIS MEANS TO CONTRACTORS AND CONSUMERS
This accelerated phase out decision impacts all HCFCs and R-22 is by far the most widely used HCFC in the market today.
WHAT'S NEXT
With respect to the availability of HCFCs in the United States, on an R-22 basis the accelerated phase out decision will remove an additional 60 million pounds of supply in 2010 and the total supply cap will be reduced by 61% from today's levels.
The next regulatory milestone is expected to occur in 2008 when the EPA announces its plans for the 2010 through 2014 allocation of R-22 consumption rights. The EPA may chose to allocate less than all available rights for the 2010 through 2014 period further reducing supply.

Where We Are

Marke's Heating & Cooling is located in Hilton Head, South Carolina, just 95 miles south of historic Charleston, South Carolina and 45 minutes north of Savannah, Georgia, Hilton Head Island boasts being the second largest island off the Eastern Coast, with 12 miles of wide sandy beaches. It is shaped like a foot, with the "North End" being the ankle, "Mid-Island", which faces the Atlantic Ocean, being the heel and sole, and the "South End" being the toe.

The average temperature on Hilton Head Island is 71 degrees Farenheit, a semi-tropical climate which offers vacationers a year-round resort. Average temperatures range from the low 60's in the cool season to the mid 80's-90's in the summer.

There's always something to do on Hilton Head Island. If you're a golfer, there's 23 championship courses to choose from. Play tennis? Take your pick from over 200 tennis courts. Prefer watersports? Try a dolphin cruise, deep sea fishing, canoeing, windsurfing, sailboating or just plain ol' surf casting.

With trails running along most of the island, often parallel with Highway 278, bicycling is a popular activity. For the shopper, there's certainly no lack of outlet malls, department stores and shopping plazas. And if you like to eat, you'll find nearly every type of cuisine imaginable at many of the fine restaurants on Hilton Head Island.

And don't forget, there's also horseback riding, eco-tours, dinner cruises, & birdwatching ....so much to do, so little time!
