3 Important Things to Consider when Purchasing a New Heating System

HVAC Service Van Outside of Home for Residential Heating System Installation

The average lifespan of a heating and air conditioning system is 15 years. If your system is approaching this age limit, or has already surpassed it, you might want to have your system evaluated by an HVAC professional. Knowing where to begin or what to look for in a contractor and a new system can be overwhelming, so consider these tips as a guide for your purchase:

1. Find the Right HVAC Company

Selecting the best company that can meet your heating and cooling needs and budgetary needs is essential to acquiring satisfaction and security in this major purchase. You need a company that can size and install the equipment correctly, so you get the right system the first time.

You do not want your system designed by a salesman with no field experience. Using an inexperienced contractor can result in inaccurate measurements. But when you work with a company that has great reviews and proven experience, you can have peace of mind throughout the process.

2. Pay Attention to the Efficiency Ratings: SEER

The seasonal energy-efficiency ratio (SEER) rates how many BTU a unit will remove for each watt of electricity consumed. The higher the SEER, the less you spend on operating costs. So checking any unit you are considering for this rating will help you narrow down your options and find a system that will save you money in the long run on energy bills.

3. Learn about Rebates or Other Financial Incentives

Your contractor should help you decide which rebates or incentives can work best for your financial needs and situation. Rebate programs often specify a certain minimum efficiency rating or energy conservation measures to be eligible. It all can get a little overwhelming, so having an expert HVAC technician to help you wade through the information will help you to find out what works for you.
