Just because your aging home heating and air conditioning system is still functioning doesn’t mean your home is as comfortable as it could be. And what about your energy bills? Could they be lower?
It might be time to think about replacing an obsolete heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system with new, more energy-eﬃcient equipment. Before you experience a system failure, take time to do your homework, so you can make an informed decision regarding new equipment.
Begin by inviting a certiﬁed technician to inspect and service your home’s current HVAC system. North American Technician Excellence (NATE)-certiﬁed technicians, for example, can identify existing or potential problems, take steps to repair or avoid them and, if appropriate, recommend a new system that better matches your heating and cooling needs.
Use this time to become knowledgeable about eﬃciency ratings, cooling and heating capacities and other factors that aﬀect equipment performance. It’s also a good idea to research the types and brands of systems available.
Think about where a new system will be installed. Do you require an outdoor unit, or will you need to install the unit in a basement, attic or closet?
4. Think Green
Taking an environmentally friendly approach to equipment purchases and installations can improve the indoor air quality in your home and reduce your carbon footprint. Fortunately, this approach usually results in increased energy savings, too.
5. Shop Around
Look for a unit sized for the heating and cooling demands of your home, and ensure your home has suﬃcient insulation and the duct work is properly sealed. Otherwise, you may lose some of the eﬃciency your new system oﬀers.
