Choosing a new heater is not as difficult as you may think. Naturally, you’ll want to research your options and shop around to get the best deal. It also helps to know what to look for when choosing a new heater or AC system so you’ll get the most from your investment. Here are some important aspects to consider when buying a new heating/AC system for your home.
Energy efficiency is a must in a HVAC system if you want to save on energy bills. When choosing new air conditioner or heating systems for your home, make sure the unit has a high SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) rating of 16 or above. A system with a high energy efficiency rating will provide you with greater comfort while keeping your energy costs down.
Compare Potential and Prices
Comparison shopping online gives you a chance to see your options at a glance and compare heater potential and prices. You should also check into installation costs, service contracts and warranties as well as ask your contractor if you qualify for a rebate to help reduce costs.
Be leery of going with a low priced system to save on initial costs as it could cause you to compromise on long term quality. A good heating/AC system should last ten years or more. It’s much better to invest in a higher quality unit, even if you pay a bit more, to ensure you get your money’s worth over the long haul.
Even the best of units need regular maintenance to ensure they continue to work at optimum capacity over the long haul. Before choosing a new heater or AC system, discuss maintenance contract options with your contractor to make sure your unit will be well taken care of for the duration. Annual maintenance and cleaning can help prevent expensive repairs and keep your system running smoothly for years to come.
