If you’ve read any of our blog posts, you know that we’re pretty big on keeping your heating and air conditioning systems up to par with the annual maintenance. One thing we haven’t really talked about that much, though, is how one goes about choosing the right heating and air conditioning system for their home. The weather outside can be downright frightful, and, as this winter has shown us, somewhat unpredictable, further emphasizing the need for the right HVAC system.
In today’s world, one of the first things one should look at when purchasing a new heating and air system is the overall energy efficiency. In the past years, the individual components of both heating and air conditioning weren’t as efficient with the energy they use as of today’s models, so chances are any new model available at local heating and air conditioning companies will be more efficient than the model currently installed in one’s home. This does not mean, however, that any model will do. There are two major factors determining the type of heating and air system one needs – the size of the home in question and the weather of the region it resides in.
The size of the home is pretty important when choosing the heating and air services, especially when it comes to getting the right fit for one’s home. For a larger home, the more powerful components are going to need to be installed to achieve the desired heating and cooling results, while a smaller home doesn’t need such heavy-duty equipment.
The average weather for the region also plays a big role in deciding which model type and power consumption level are desired for the new heating and air systems. For instance, if the weather is relatively warm throughout the year with a little variation then it would make sense to have a system whose components are more on the small end since they won’t have to be doing much heating or cooling throughout the year. If, however, the region experiences hot summers and cold, long winters, then a more powerful and beefier system may want to be purchased instead.
There are a few other factors involved that can help determine the overall power level of the desired systems, including how shaded the home is and how much sunlight it lets into the home. To get the best advice and the best results for your specific home, it’d be best to talk to the pros here at our shop.
