Things to Consider When Installing a New HVAC System in an Old Home
Are you updating your older home with a newer heating and air conditioning system? Before you do, it’s important to consider some factors that can impact the installation’s success. Take a look at three things you need to think about.
#1: The Right Fit is Critical
With newer homes, the right size HVAC equipment is important. It’s even more critical in an older home. You’ll need to size it right to make sure it’s compatible with the square footage of the house. You’ll also need to understand the ductwork and vents in your home to be sure you choose the right type of unit.
#2: Understand the Electrical
Older homes could have very old electrical and wiring. Be sure to know whether your home’s electric panel needs updating to accommodate a more powerful system. Doing it before you purchase and install your heating and cooling system will save you headaches down the road.
#3: Choose an Experienced HVAC Company
One of the biggest mistakes you can make when upgrading an old HVAC system in an older home is choosing an inexperienced HVAC company. You want someone who understands both older homes and newer technology to guide you in your equipment purchase and provide reliable installation.
Older homes can be a real treasure unless you’re upgrading older mechanicals. You don’t have to worry about trouble with a new HVAC system in your older home if you hire the right HVAC professionals.
