When it’s finally time to upgrade your home’s HVAC system, there are a few factors to consider before getting started. Taking the time to evaluate all options and working with a reliable local AC service to choose and install the right system will improve your return on investment as well as your home’s overall comfort. Here are a few things to think about during the installation process.
The Unit’s Size
First and most importantly, it’s important to choose the right size AC unit for the home. In most instances, size selection depends on the size of the building as well as the family’s usage patterns. Choosing a unit that’s too small will lead to it running all the time and working harder—leading to high utility bills and premature system failure. Conversely, selecting a system that’s too big will cause it to power cycle rapidly, and parts will wear out much faster. Count on the team at A/C Tex to help you choose the right size unit for your home.
Most of our customers are on tight budgets, which means pricing is a primary factor in choosing an HVAC system. Doing some preliminary research is the best way to cut costs when selecting and installing a new air conditioning system. Before deciding, get quotes from several local companies and look for models with top satisfaction ratings.
If time is of the essence, and you need a new system now, our technicians can help you select a system that meets your requirements and fits the budget. It’s important to remember, though, that a system that’s either too cheap or too expensive will likely not be a good long-term investment.
When installing a new air conditioning system, it’s easy (and tempting) to sacrifice quality for cost efficiency. However, it’s always best to go with the highest-quality unit you can afford. While the initial cost may be higher, a quality system is typically more efficient than a low-cost unit, which means the long-term costs will be lower.
Today’s HVAC systems come with technology features that work in various ways. Local air conditioning installers offer a range of connected features, such as smartphone integration, home automation, and comfort zoning. These features, while not necessary for operation, are great ways for homeowners to improve the efficiency of their systems, save on utilities, and control indoor temperatures easily.
Installing a new residential HVAC system is a big investment. For peace of mind and increased reliability, be sure to learn about your chosen brand before making any commitment.
To the extent possible, look for a brand with a great reputation, and choose a professional installer who knows about the performance of various makes and models. By choosing the right contractor, you’re more likely to find a system that’s highly rated and dependable.
