HVAC Upgrades: Vital Considerations to Remember

Replacing your old HVAC system can set you back a considerable amount of money, but nevertheless it’s a necessary expense. After all, you can’t count on faulty heating and cooling equipment to properly regulate your indoor climate.

Then again, upgrading your HVAC system and choosing the right replacement unit are two different things. To compare products like a professional, don’t overlook the following vital considerations:

Unit Size

Any Hader roofing and HVAC expert would agree that size matters. If the unit is too small, it will have to constantly work overtime just to meet the temperature level the thermostat demands. If it’s too big, it will cost more to operate and maintain.

Let a qualified technician figure out the appropriate size of HVAC equipment for your space. Whether you’re buying a new furnace, air conditioner or heat pump, the Manual J method will reveal the capacity of the unit you need.

Efficiency Rating

Old heating units are notorious for energy waste, as they lack the technology to convert all of the fuel they burn into heat. If truth be told, there’s still no 100%-efficient product on the market. The best furnaces and boilers–those with an AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) value of at least 90%–are the closest we have to absolute energy-saving systems.

To identify high-efficiency air conditioners and heat pumps, pay attention to SEER (seasonal energy efficiency rating). The minimum SEER value a product must have to be considered energy efficient depends on your location, so consult a qualified technician before you purchase. 

Fuel

To reduce your energy expenses, choose an HVAC unit that runs on a widely available fuel. To embrace sustainability, consider investing in a product that uses renewable energy, like a geothermal heat pump.
