Installing a new HVAC system is a large purchase but also a large investment. Our HVAC systems are working pretty much all throughout the year to keep our homes comfortable. Outside of the few weeks in the spring and fall when our systems are quiet, they really never turn off. This is why we need to make sure we make the right purchase decisions. Your new HVAC will be with you for a very long time! We’re here to guide you through the options and considerations.
Types of HVAC Systems
There are four different types of common HVAC systems that people go for. They vary based on your home’s needs so choose the one that works best for your home and your budget.
Split system: These are the most common types of HVAC systems. The split refers to splitting the HVAC duties between two units. It separates the heating from the cooling.
Hybrid system: These are similar to a split system but much more efficient. They are equipped with a hybrid electric heater that can make your HVAC more energy efficient.
Ductless system: These systems have the air conditioner placed outside as well as a heat pump that is used for cooling and heating. They are ideal for homes where conventional duct systems can’t be used.
Packaged system: These are heating and cooling combos where both are combined into one unit. They are usually placed outside and great for homes without basements.
Consider the Factors
There is a lot to keep in mind with a new HVAC. You will want to consider things like efficiency, capacity, sounds, maintenance needs, price, and accessories. These can all play a role into your final decision.
There have been a variety of advancements in HVAC. For example, those with UV light can improve your indoor air quality and those with higher efficiency ratings can help optimize the heating and cooling in your home. Taking the time to investigate these factors and ratings can make a difference in your home.
You want to find an HVAC that heats and cools your home effectively. This requires measuring the space, calculating loads, and looking at BTU ratings. A knowledgeable contractor can help you with this part and can pinpoint the systems that will fit your home the best.
Compatibility with any new accessories is also something that homeowners should take into account. You may want to find one that pairs well with programmable thermostats so you can control your heating and cooling system from anywhere with a couple of taps on your phone.
Find a Good Contractor
A good contractor will take you a long way. They are great resources to guide you in the process of picking out a new HVAC. They know what to take into account like the size of the home, occupants, duct location, filtration, design, etc. and they know how to perform the calculations that will get your home exactly what it needs.
