How to Find the Perfect HVAC System
Your home’s HVAC system is all that stands between you and the summer sun or winter freeze. That’s why you should do everything you can to ensure that you have the right system in place to handle your heating and cooling needs. During your search for the perfect HVAC system, there are three main things that you will need to consider.
To keep your home warm during those chilly months, you will need a furnace. Generally, it is better to install a modern system instead of an old one. New units tend to be much more energy efficient. While an old furnace might have an Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency rating of around 60%, newer units can have scores as high as 98%. Who doesn’t love lower energy bills?
Much like with the furnace, you should try to find an air conditioning system that can keep your home cool without causing huge spikes in your energy bills. When shopping around, you should look at the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) of the various options you are considering. The higher the SEER number, the more efficient the system is.
It can be tempting to think that the air conditioner and furnace are the only things you need to consider when installing an HVAC system. However, that’s simply not the case. You should also hire a professional to thoroughly inspect the ductwork that will deliver the heating and cooling to your home.
If it is poorly sealed, you could be reducing the efficiency of your system by as much as 30%. If you don’t want to deal with this level of energy loss, you should have your ductwork properly insulated and cleared of dust and debris.
