MiCasa Makeovers

   

Jon Wayne is proud to donate brand new heating and cooling systems to deserving San Antonio area families through the MiCasa Home Makeover program. During the makeover process, Jon Wayne will perform a Complete Home Evaluation to make sure the new equipment we install will perform at maximum efficiency. That process typically includes a blower door test and Manual J Load calculation. These tests will take into consideration all new insulation, windows, exterior siding and duct work. The end result is a comfortable, energy efficient home.

We joined the MiCasa team in 2008 and are now working on our 15th home makeover project.

Jon Wayne Heating and Air was blessed with the opportunity to contribute with this MiCasa Makeover. The Campa's current system was in very poor condition with an impacted cooling coil, rusted furnace and leaking duct work. After doing a Complete Home Evaluation, we determined that their current 3 Ton system was way oversized. Our Manual J Load calculation took into consideration the new double pane windows, upgraded insulation and new vinyl siding that was being installed in the home. Based on these new factors the Campa's only needed a 2 ton system to properly heat and cool their home. Janet and Ramiro, dramatically lower electric bills are on their way!
