Important Information about Residential HVAC Equipment Installation
Posted by alex , on Jan, 2015
If you are contemplating enhancing your HVAC system by replacing your older, unreliable system with a new one, it is essential that you get a system that has innovative comfort features. Such features include variable speed fans, automatic humidity/temperature controls, and two-stage compressors among others. Getting a reliable Residential HVAC Equipment Installation service will enable you to save a substantial amount of money on repairs, while saving you money on utility bills.
It is imperative that you only replace your system after careful planning, rather than waiting for your system to fail and rushing into a decision without careful consideration. It is important to note that an HVAC system will often have a useful life of between 10 to 15 years. However, the heat pump compressors will tend to fail earlier than the air conditioner compressors, especially because they are used all year round.
The effects of a worn out system are manifested by leaking refrigerants, failing motors or development of cracks in the gas furnace. Moreover, you may realize that the compressor in the outdoor unit will frequently short out. Rather than carrying out repairs that are more often than not very expensive, you should consider replacing your system.
Your HVAC system will often provide you with both heating and cooling. To replace a complete system, you will require both an outdoor unit, which is comprised of a heat pump and an air conditioner, and an indoor unit comprised of an evaporating coil or a gas furnace with an evaporating coil. You may elect to add a humidifier or a high-efficiency air cleaner in a bid to further improve your indoor air quality.
While replacing your HVAC system, do not be tempted to assume that a bigger system will necessarily solve all the problems you were experiencing with the old system. For instance, hot and cold spots, or a system that doesn’t give you comfort in spite of it’s running all the time during the summer. A larger system might create more problems than it solves. Instead, you should consider a number of factors, including efficiency, comfort, availability of fuel and your home’s unique characteristics.
