Points to Consider When Buying a New HVAC System in Girard

March 09, 2015

Acquiring a new furnace and A/C unit is a significant investment and Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning recognizes that. As you explore your options, there are many essential questions that you need to answer in order to reasonably guarantee you have an affordable and efficient HVAC solution for your Girard area home. Now let’s outline what you should be familiar with about a new home comfort system.

What Precisely Makes Up A Heating & Air Conditioning System?

Your home’s Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC) system, what Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning refers to as the “home comfort system”, often is made up of three major components:

  1. The furnace, which facilitates heat and air movement
  2. The condenser, the air conditioner or cooling equipment, and
  3. One or several products that control air quality and humidity levels in your home

In some Girard area homes, a heat pump may be used rather than a furnace and condenser. Heat pumps expel indoor heat in the summer and add outdoor heat in winter. Working together with the thermostat, these primary components regulate your indoor environmental comfort level. Like the engine of a truck, the home comfort system is the mechanism of your home that ‘drives’ your family’s indoor comfort year round.

Quality Installation Is The Key

The specs of your home dictate the choices available to you for a home comfort system. The quality of the installation is extremely important in that process. If the installation is unprofessional and performed poorly, the equipment, energy-efficiency and your comfort level is hampered significantly. Irregardless of how much you spent, the equipment will suffer from frequent repair problems in the future if the install was bad. So it’s absolutely critical to work with a company that can ”walk the talk” relating to their installation quality.

Give Consideration To All Potential Features And Options

There are a myriad of makes, models, features and options of comfort equipment available to pick from. You’ll want to look into every option to assure your home’s air quality, humidity level, temperature and energy-consumption ideal for the health and comfort of your family. An ethical home comfort company will assist you in identifying your family’s specific comfort needs and desires, then just walk you through the best solutions that will meet those needs for you. When they're finished, you should have everything you need to make an informed buying decision you are comfortable with.

Reduce Energy Consumption

A trustworthy home comfort company will also undertake what’s called a heating and cooling load calculation and an energy-efficiency analysis on your home. These calculations not only help you figure out the proper type of equipment needed, they conveniently map the additional savings of high-efficiency heating and air conditioning products.

Saving money each month thru energy reduction are big factors because the cost of operating a heating and air conditioning system is usually not factored when figuring out your budget. Imagine if your home comfort system could produce a check for $700 each year, what would you do with the extra money in your pocket? When energy costs go up, high-efficiency equipment becomes increasingly helpful to your family’s budget. By the same token, as heating and air conditioning manufacturers produce more efficient equipment, the outdoor environment also benefits. So really give some thought to high-efficiency equipment. It’s equipment intended to save much more than just your utility bills; it's environmentally conscious.

Who Are You Dealing With?

When conducting your “apples-to-apples” comparison of Warranties and Guarantees from multiple Girard area companies, strongly consider and aggressively question the financial stability, history and longevity of the company you are dealing with. There are a lot of cheap service pitches out there; they are the companies you will want to watch out for. A paper certificate does not help you if the issuing company is not around when you need to use it. The company should be viable enough to supply you favorable financing so you can further leverage the financial investment with low, easy to manage monthly payments. The risk with a lot of smaller companies is that they are sold or just go out of business.

In summary, the manufacturer of the equipment will usually warrant difficulties in the equipment, but the installing company alone guarantees the installation work.
