What to consider when buying a HVAC system

Replacing a HVAC system is always daunting.

First, deciding what kind of HVAC system you want stinks. There are so many options out there in the heating and cooling world. Do you want a furnace? Well there are three different types of them? Do you want forced air or electric heating? How about AC with or without ductwork? Second, deciding which HVAC company to hire to install the HVAC system you choose is rough. There is a lot of competition out there. Finding the right HVAC company is important. Reading reviews and skimming the website isn’t enough. You need to determine if the company is licensed, bonded and insured. You need technicians that are NATE certified with Carrier products. It is important to get a good quality company. Third, you need to remember that size matters for HVAC. Too small of a unit and you have super high bills since the device never turns off. It will have more repairs and breakdowns though. Too large of a HVAC device means that you always have a machine stopping and starting. That is rough on it too. Lastly, where is this HVAC system going in your home? Some people want to avoid having a giant indoor air handler sitting in a hallway closet. There are other placement options. Radiant heating puts the electric mats under the floors. Ductless HVAC are wall mounted air handlers out of the way. The best thing to do when replacing your HVAC unit is to research. It takes time, energy and effort but is worth it in the end.
