HVAC Buying Guide
Planning to replace your heating/cooling system? The purchase of an HVAC system is often a very unfamiliar project for homeowners, as most only have to make the upgrade 1-2 times in their lives.
We understand that when you start shopping for a new air conditioner, furnace or heat pump, you have a lot of options. To make sure that you have the best HVAC replacement experience possible, we encourage you to consider these 5 key factors that play a role in your comfort, your budget, and your peace-of-mind with having a new HVAC system installed in your home.
Quality Of HVAC Brand
There are many manufacturers of heating and cooling equipment, but not all brands are made the same. Do your research and look at consumer feedback regarding the quality of the HVAC manufacturer. Take into consideration the reliability and reputation of the HVAC brand.
Understand that while a higher-rated brand, like Trane, may come with more of an upfront cost than a 'builders grade' system, you will gain much more with durability, system lifespan, and comfort.
HVAC technology has come a long way through the years in improving operational efficiencies. The more efficient your HVAC system, the more you will expect to save on your utility usage. Many homeowners can recoup the extra cost of the highest-efficiency air conditioners and furnaces in the first 5 years of use and enjoy the benefits (and savings) long after that.
Consider the utility usage saved and comfort gained with equipment with higher AFUE and SEER ratings.
Both manufacturers and HVAC contractors have different promotions available throughout the year. Pay attention to these offers, and take advantage of seasonal discounts, incentives, and financing options to make the project more affordable.
Local Utility Rebates
Did you know that you can receive rebates from local utility companies for HVAC upgrades? The purchase and installation of a high-efficiency furnace and air conditioner can help you earn money back in your pocket.
At Logan Services, we even apply for those rebates for you - all you do is have to sit back and wait for that check to come. Explore different equipment options to see what local incentives you may qualify for.
The most important decision you will make with your HVAC project is choosing the company that installs it. The best equipment in the world will not bring you all of the benefits if it is not installed correctly. A poorly installed heating/cooling system will impact both your home comfort and your wallet.
Pay attention to who you are considering to have replace your HVAC system. Read online reviews and select a company known for high-quality installation and customer experience.
