Upgrading or replacing your heating and air conditioning system is never done on a whim. There’s usually a good reason to shop for a new HVAC system. But there are some important considerations that nobody tells you when you start the process. Here are three of them.
#1: Energy Efficiency is Worth the Price
While it’s critical to stick to your budget, you should also consider an HVAC system’s energy efficiency before making a purchase. The SEER rating is what to look for. The higher the number, the greater the efficiency. Get the most efficient model your budget will allow. It will pay for itself over time in the amount of money you save on your energy bills.
#2: Size is Important
Many homeowners think bigger is better when it comes to a heating and cooling system, but that’s not the case. If you get one that’s either too big or too small, you lose efficiency and risk damage to the equipment from improper sizing. Be sure to work with a reliable HVAC company to ensure you invest in equipment that’s the right size for your home and square footage.
#3: Consider Upgrades
To get the most from a new system, be sure to consider upgrades that go along with it. One upgrade to be sure to invest in is a programmable thermostat. I will help ensure your system works to its potential.
