As reported in a previous Blog, Total Comfort has started development of a site on North U.S. Highway 1 in Ormond Beach that will be its new home upon completion. In addition to being the home and headquarters of Total Comfort, the site will feature RV and boat storage and will include covered and uncovered spaces.
Below is a series of short videos in chronological order that will chart the progress of the project. Videos will be added as they are recorded and added to this Blog Post.

Total Comfort has broken ground on its new home at 1345 North U.S. Highway 1, Ormond Beach.
Construction on Phase I which will include covered and uncovered recreational vehicle and boat the storage and a propane fill station began today with the installation of a construction entrance and erection of silt fencing around the perimeter of the project. Clearing, fill, and excavation will start once the silt fencing is in place.
The entire project will include a new central headquarters for all the divisions of Total Comfort. A full construction schedule has not been set but should follow soon.
A short video was recorded this afternoon to show the eleven acre site as the project starts. Periodically, we will post updates on the progress. The video below shows the first equipment arriving from the site work contractor P&S Paving. There is also a second short video showing the silt fencing installed.
The picture above shows a new air handler installation with a 4 inch filter installed.
Total Comfort offers the availability of a 4-inch thick filter that provides MERV 11 filtration. The higher the MERV value is the value the more efficient the filter will be in trapping airborne particles. MERV which stands for Minimum Efficiency Report Values range from 1 to 16 with the higher number being able to filter out more particles.
Ask one of our Comfort Specialists about these filters today.
Total Comfort can install a circuit through which you can connect your portable generator to your electrical panel.
When we install a circuit to your portable generator we provide a plug somewhere outside your home in a safe and well ventilated location and a cord that will connect to your portable generator.
When we do this circuit, we always install an “interlock” switch on your electrical panel. This device is designed to allow safe back-feeding of your panel through the portable generator during power outages and eliminating illegal and unsafe back-feeding situations that could potentially electrocute power line personnel or damage your generator.
Each installation can be very different so we have to come out to your home or business and give you an estimate based on your individual conditions and requirements.
Ductless also known as mini-split air conditioning systems are more efficient and provide a greater level of comfort than conventional systems, however, they are more expensive.
The added expense stems for the fact that the equipment itself is usually more expensive and the installations, in most cases, requires additional electrical work. Costs to install a new ductless system start at between $3,000 and $4,000 for a 1.5 ton system.
Typically, these systems have a minimum efficiency of 18 SEER and go up from there compared to conventional systems that begin with an efficiency of 14 SEER.
When combined with the elimination of duct work in hot attics, ductless systems can be more that 30% more efficient that a conventional ducted system.
Each ductless has its own thermostat which offers a greater level of individual comfort.

Just in case you hadn’t noticed, when you exchange your 20# Propane Cylinder at an exchange cage, you only get 15# of propane. When you come to our fill station you get 20# of propane. In addition, our price is usually less than that of an exchange cylinder.
