New Year, New HVACs

January 17, 2013

Winter’s here and there’s a chill in the air… or is your HVAC heating system broken? Uh-oh. Look ahead to a warm and cheery new year with a fresh start on your HVAC with a brand new HVAC installation or repairs on your current equipment. Or if your new year’s resolution was to stay on top of things and ahead of the curve, why not schedule a maintenance checkup to prolong the life of your heating and cooling systems?

If you are in the market for a new HVAC, here are some considerations:

Volume
Check out the volume of air that your air conditioning / heating system can pump, and compare that to the volume of your home, which can be roughly estimated by square footage times the height of your walls. Limited or covered ventilation, how much furniture, and the structure of the space also comes into play. If you like, we can do an onsite visit and make calculations to better gauge how much volume you’ll need to heat or cool your home within a given time frame.

Climate
This one is a no-brainer, but if you’re living in parts where weather fluctuates wildly or regular climate temperatures reach extremes, you may need a more powerful system to do the job of keeping your house a moderate and comfortable temperature. Remember that shopping on Google may lead to sources that talk about one-size-fits-most models, based on more average temperatures than you experience where you live, if you live in the mountains or in more humid areas. Our professionals can help you narrow it down.

Insulation
Your house’s exterior, insulation, and walling are other factors that can affect your HVAC decision-making process.

Energy Consumption and Efficiency
Low energy consumption doesn’t always mean bang for your buck, nor does a powerful output signify efficiency or heavy consumption. Our pros can break down your options for all types of HVAC units and systems, where the value lies in each, and what is most affordable and best suited to your budget and performance needs.
