A Thorough Pre-Assessment of Your Home and Current Heating and Cooling Equipment Now Can Save You Time, Money and Aggravation Later!
The first step toward helping you choose the right heating and air conditioning system for your home is to do a complete analysis of your present heating and air conditioning system and of your home to determine the right size equipment for your individual comfort needs.
According to the Department of Energy, a large percentage of people who replace their heating and air conditioning systems don’t take the time to get a proper system analysis and end up with the wrong size equipment. This results in higher utility bills, equipment that fails and needs to be replaced before its life expectancy is reached and a system that does not provide the comfort that you expected.
Eight Points You Should Discuss with Your Contractor BEFORE You Purchase Your New Heater and/or Air Conditioner
Your heating and air conditioning contractor should spend at least 90 minutes with you before you decide on the system your purchase and should cover the following points:
1. Home Introduction
Sharing information about how you live in your home and the ways you would like to improve your heating and cooling system will help our consultant select the right system for you and your family.
2. Measuring Your Home
Choosing the right size heating or A/C system is very important. By measuring each room with special attention to window placement and vents, we can address any problems with rooms that may be too hot or too cold.
3. Ductwork Design
Because the ducts in your home carry the air to the rooms, it is important to be sure that they are the correct size and length to deliver the proper amount of heating and cooling. A thorough inspection is part of our system analysis and is always necessary prior to any heater or air conditioner installation.
4. Load Calculation
A load calculation involves a special formula that we use to be sure the system we are suggesting is not too large or too small for your family’s needs. It’s a critical step that some contractors skip and, if not done correctly, can result in a system that runs too often and wastes energy. It can also lead to a system that does not heat or cool your home properly.
5. Company Background
Making sure you know who you are doing business with should always be a top priority.
