Checklist For Buying A New HVAC System

When you’re looking for a new HVAC system, it’s important to get the one that is right for you the first time. With so many options to consider, it’s important to consider every factor when making your decision, including efficiency, size, type, and ratings for each system that falls within your budget.

The following is a good general guide to follow when selecting your new system. These tips are all-purpose, and will apply when looking for both LG Air Conditioning and furnaces alike.

Check The Efficiency Ratings

Chances are, if you are a first-time buyer or haven’t had to purchase a new unit in the last 10 – 20 years, the technology has likely changed substantially from your previous unit. There may be a few new terms or acronyms associated with your units that are very important to take into consideration.

These acronyms (like SEER, HSPF, AFUE and EER) are all rating scales commonly used to measure the efficiency of your air conditioner or furnace. While different rating scales usually measure different things, they all measure the efficiency of the system, and it’s a safe bet to assume that a higher rating generally means a higher efficiency. It is probably a good idea to familiarize yourself with what the common rating scales mean, and what is generally considered to be an acceptable level for each scale.

Get A Programmable Thermostat To Pair With Your System

Most modern thermostats are good for your home, and usually feature a few programmable options that make your home’s heating and cooling schedule fully customizable. This allows you to set the temperature in your home, depending on the time of day. Leaving your home at a higher temperature in the summer and cooler temperature in the winter when you aren’t at home can save you a significant amount on your monthly energy bills.

While most thermostats will do the job just fine, there are some with features you may or may not wish to introduce into your home, like smartphone compatibility or smart home devices. While generally considered safe, some people might feel concerned about the devices’ security, which is completely up to the needs of the user in the end. Do your research, and choose a thermostat that has the features you will best make use of.

Choose The Appropriate Unit Size

Chances are you will have HVAC experts in your home to determine if your existing HVAC system is beyond repair. If that ends up being the case and you require a new unit, it would be a good time for you to inquire as to the appropriate size of unit you would need. This is entirely based upon the volume of air that needs to be heated or cooled.

Having a system that is too small will require the unit to be active more often, and require more power to condition the air effectively. It would likely also take longer for it to finish, meaning you’re feeling uncomfortable for longer. Unfortunately, you can’t overcompensate either, as an oversized unit will naturally draw more power to heat or cool the same amount of space, causing a spike in energy costs. This also means that it will start and stop more than usual, meaning greater wear and tear on the unit.

As a result, finding the optimal size will mean that you get a longer life out of your unit, and you will feel much more comfortable in the long run.

Find The Best Unit For Your Budget

Choosing an air conditioner based on the retail price alone is a recipe for disaster. While a unit might initially seem like a better deal due to its sticker price, you may find that you will pay much more for it in repairs in the long run. That lower cost could be associated with a lower efficiency, and possibly even a lower quality. This is why it is so important to do your research and find out which units come highly recommended, or have the best ratings for their price range. Choosing a lower cost unit is not always a bad thing, you just have to consider all of your factors when purchasing a unit.

It is always helpful to find an HVAC specialist you can trust will give you good advice all the time. Some companies are partnered with particular brands of units, and they might feel obligated to push a system that doesn’t actually suit your home. Make sure you consult with professionals who have an unbiased opinion and have a solid understanding of a variety of makes and models in the industry, including knowledge on all of the points we have provided above. Being able to show you why an air conditioner is a highly rated unit and what makes the size of your furnace right for your home can make all the difference in choosing the right unit for you.

In the end, it will leave you with a greater peace of mind, and you’ll end up feeling more comfortable in your own home.
