Installing a new HVAC system is a major investment in your home, so it’s crucial to rely on certified professionals with a proven track record, such as Adam Mechanical. However, it’s also helpful to understand what to look for in a new system before starting the process. This knowledge will give you a better understanding of your specific needs and ensure that your new system is efficient and cost-effective.
Consider the Size HVAC systems should have an appropriate power output that matches the size of your home. An underpowered system will struggle to meet demands, resulting in higher bills and discomfort. Conversely, an overpowered system will engage in frequent “short cycling,” rapidly meeting the demands of the home and then shutting off, only to turn on again shortly after. Short cycling strains the system, increases energy consumption, and shortens its lifespan. Therefore, the right HVAC installation should involve sizing the system properly to avoid these issues. It should run for at least 15 minutes at a time to prevent short cycling while effectively maintaining a comfortable home environment.
Consider Energy Efficiency Installing a new HVAC system provides an excellent opportunity to improve energy efficiency. New units can perform the same job while minimizing energy waste, leading to lower monthly costs. Look for units displaying the EnergyStar logo, as they meet rigorous government standards for environmental quality and can significantly reduce your summer utility bills. Additionally, other factors within your home, such as insulation and double-paned windows, can further enhance energy efficiency. Your HVAC installation technician can offer recommendations on these aspects and advise on thermostat placement, which also impacts the overall efficiency of your new system.
