All too many times, purchasing a new HVAC system is a rush decision that most homeowners make simply because of the urgency and the need. A common scenario is the old AC and heating unit fails without warning and you are forced to make an important purchase hastily. Since your HVAC system contributes to the comfort and well being of your home and family as well as your energy savings and costs, it would make better sense to plan this all-important purchase in advance. When planning in advance you are able to avoid the many common purchasing mistakes people tend to make, some of which we have included below.
Purchasing An Oversized or Undersized Unit
Many people may not know that purchasing HVAC equipment that is either too large or too small for your home and living space can create a great deal of energy waste as well as difficulty providing sufficient comfort to your home. In addition, if your equipment is not properly sized to fit your home it can lead to frequent breakdowns and even costly failures. With these concerns in mind, it is important to choose an HVAC service provider and installer that will perform a detailed load calculation in order to determine the appropriately sized unit that is needed. This is where the professionals at South Nashville Heating & Cooling come in.
Our highly skilled and trained technicians are on hand to assist with all your decision making and stand ready to ensure that the system you choose is properly sized for your family and home needs. We are on hand to answer all your questions and address your every concern.
Making Your Decision Based On Price
Our professionals have all the experience, knowledge and know-how needed to help you choose the ideal HVAC system. Keep in mind that choosing the lowest price may typically work for many of your other household purchases, but such is not the case when buying a new HVAC system. Systems that are priced much lower tend to minimize energy savings, are the least efficient models, and often have a lesser life span, all of which can have a negative impact on performance and energy consumption over time.
Not Performing Proper Routine Maintenance
Routine maintenance is critical to the overall functionality and life expectancy of your new equipment. Performing routine maintenance will allow your system to work effectively and efficiently and be every bit reliable and dependable. With that said, we strongly recommend after purchasing your new equipment that you purchase a yearly maintenance agreement from our reputable team to help protect your equipment and your manufacturer’s warranty coverage as well.
Neglecting the Research and Comparison Shopping
We also suggest that our clients do their research and give focus to the many different system models available on the market today. It is wise to perform comparison shopping and identify innovative technology features that can contribute to higher levels of comfort, better control of humidity, and help you to save both money and energy. Be sure to give attention to the benefits of high performing features such as smart controls, variable speed blowers, EMC motors and two-stage compressors and zoning. There are a variety of specialized features available today that will serve the needs of your home and family even more.
