The one thing you really need to remember when it comes to replacing your HVAC system is that if you have an older system replacing it will actually save you money in the long run. A lot has happened as far as technological advancements and your HVAC system. Some of the considerations you will need to make when replacing your HVAC system:
Replacing Everything at Once: Is it really important to replace all of the equipment? Yes, it is. Probably. You want to make sure that all of your equipment and the parts of it all work together in a seamless process. That means that you should replace not only the indoor unit, but the outdoor one too.
What Size? Size does matter when replacing your HVAC system. Too small of a system and you will not get enough heat or air conditioning in your home. Too big and you will have a high bill.
Home Improvements: When it comes time to replacing your system you might need to make a few home improvements to reduce operating and heating/air conditioning costs, but to also make the HVAC system run more efficiently. Ask your contractor how to improve efficiency.
Types Of HVAC: In general there are four specific “types” of heating and cooling systems. They include:
- Split System: This is the most common type of HVAC for your home. It includes a system that is indoors as well as outdoors.
- Hybrid Heat Split: One of the more efficient variations, Hybrid uses a heat pump, electricity and or gas.
- Duct Free: If you have a room where a more traditional ducted system cannot go, a duct-free system would work best for you.
- Packaged Systems: On the other hand, if you don’t have a lot of room for something like a hybrid, you can find packaged units too.
