3 Qualities Your HVAC System Should Always Have
Any HVAC company needs to be ready to answer a multitude of general HVAC service questions. They come from customers face-to-face, over the phone and via social media. One of the most common general HVAC service questions is about the qualities an HVAC system should always have. To make it easy for you, we have a created a list of the non-negotiable qualities of every HVAC system.
Top Energy Efficiency
Energy efficiency is a major concern for most consumers today. It is not only about saving on energy costs, but also about being environmentally-friendly. The SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) is the number you need to know. Depending on where you live, a system with a minimum rating of 13 or 14 is a requirement. However, systems with a ranking of up to 25 are available. The higher the SEER rating, the more energy-efficient it is.
Quality Coil Types Suited to Where You Live
The coils are an integral part of your outside unit. Quality units have coils and fins made up of a single metal, such as aluminum or copper. This will help the unit maintain its efficiency levels and last longer. If you live near the ocean, coils with special coatings are necessary.
The ductwork must be in good shape, without leaks, and be the correct size and type for the home. The recommended ductwork is always externally-insulated round ducts. Long stretches of flexible ducts are the least efficient.
