What’s the hardest working appliance in your home? Without a doubt, it’s your HVAC system. It works 24/7/365 to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Even when it’s not active, it’s still on standby, ready to kick in should there be a fluctuation in the temperature in your home. But what if it’s on its last legs? If it’s time to shop for a replacement, keep these three tips for buying a new HVAC unit in mind.
Tip #1: Do Know Your Budget
Buying the most expensive and energy efficient equipment on the market would be great, but it’s unrealistic for most families. Knowing and being realistic about your budget will help you find the best fit for the optimal HVAC system for your home.
Tip #2: Do Focus on Size
The unit size does matter when it comes to heating and cooling your home. A system that’s too big will cycle on and off frequently, wasting energy and putting excess wear and tear on the system components. On the other hand, one that’s too small will have to work overtime to keep up with your heating and cooling demands, which also ends up using excess energy while making your system work more than it should.
Tip #3: Don’t Disregard Energy Efficiency
Energy efficiency ratings matter and will save you money over time. Newly manufactured HVAC equipment is significantly more efficient than its older counterparts. High-efficiency ratings mean you could save up to 40% on your energy bills. Choose the most efficient brand and model your budget will allow.
