There are several factors to consider when shopping for a new HVAC system. The ideal heating and cooling system will be tailored to serve the needs of your home. One important factor that many people do not think of is indoor air quality. This is usually addressed later, when it comes time for furnace and duct cleaning service.
Some things the heating and cooling technician will need to know when determining the type of system that will best suit your needs include:
Total square feet of the home
Style, ranch, colonial, tri-level, etc…
Need heating only, cooling only, or both
Fuel source; electricity, natural gas, oil, propane
New install or replacing an old unit
Is the existing system a rooftop unit or other packaged product?
Is duct work in place or can it be installed?
Indoor air quality concerns including pollen, dust or pet dander, asthma or allergy triggers, dry air or static electricity, power outages or intermittent power, mold or other indoor air contaminants, stale air or odors, consistent temperature throughout the home
Budget is very important; however, know that the cheapest may not be the best. If energy conservation is a concern, spending more on a high-efficiency unit will may be worth it in the long run with energy savings. Read Energy Star Air Conditioning to learn more.
