Questions First Time HVAC Buyers Should Ask
First Time Buying an HVAC System? Keep These Questions in Mind
Your HVAC system is vital to your home. Not only is it responsible for cooling you during the hot, Texas summers, but it is also critical in circulating air and improving your indoor air quality. If you’re a resident of Katy, Sugar Land, or the greater West Houston area, keep some of these questions in mind when you’re thinking about buying an HVAC system for the first time.
Ask About the Correct Size
One of the most important things to consider is the system’s size. You’ll need to collaborate with an HVAC professional to make sure that your system will heat and cool your home efficiently. Be sure to measure the cubic feet per minute that the air can travel through. Also, look for a smaller BTU rating as this will be able to heat and cool the space faster.
Ask About Energy Efficiency
Not all HVAC systems are built the same. Look at both the AFUE and the SEER ratings to determine how efficient the system will be. The higher both ratings are, the more efficient the system is. Though more efficient systems will be more expensive upon their initial purchase, they may be able to help you save more in the long-term.
Ask About Maintenance
Regardless of the type of system you purchase, it’s important to know what you’ll need to do to keep the system running as smoothly as possible. All systems need some kind of periodic maintenance service. Air vents must be cleaned and filters should be replaced relatively regularly. Some systems may also have additional exhaust ports that need to be kept clean for optimal performance.
