Select the Right Size
When it comes to installing an HVAC system, you need to be sure you choose the correct unit. While a scorching summer in Phoenix may call for some serious air conditioning, choosing a larger unit may not give you improved performance. A large air conditioner isn’t as efficient as a smaller model. Select a furnace-based model on the BTUs it provides, and an air conditioner based on its CFM, or cubic feet per minute, output. With the right system, you’ll enjoy comfortable temperatures and affordable utility bills.
Shop by SEER Rating
The next essential factor to consider is energy efficiency. Your central air conditioner is rated using a SEER rating, or Seasonal Energy Efficient Ratio. This gives you a good idea of the most energy-efficient air conditioning options available. Asks a professional for the ideal SEER rating for your particular needs.
Typically, smaller units have a higher SEER. However, advances in technology have allowed even large units to be surprisingly energy efficient. Shop around and compare the cost with the SEER rating of your favorite models to balance your initial investment with your overall operating costs.
Consider Maintenance Steps
A new HVAC system is going to eventually require maintenance. Whether you’re a regular handyman or not, you want a hassle-free system that works hard every day. Select an HVAC upgrade that has an extended warranty and convenient maintenance schedule. You’ll need to replace your air filter every 30 to 60 days, so look for units that have conveniently located filters that are easy to remove.
Select a system that offers you the best air quality with the most affordable air filter. Depending on your system, your air conditioner could be either filtering your air and improving your indoor air quality or blowing dust and pollen throughout your home. Base your decision on your desired level of air quality and filtration.
Compare Noise Levels
Most air conditioners and furnaces come with a noise level rating. Depending on the location of these HVAC systems, you’ll want a low noise level to ensure a comfortable home. Ask about the noise level of your particular air conditioner and look for ways to reduce the noise or choose a quieter option.
Choose an Affordable Option
Of course, no one wants to pay more for an HVAC system. Thankfully, some budget-friendly options can still be energy-efficient, quiet, and easy to maintain.
