1. How Big of an HVAC System Do I Need?
How big of an HVAC system do you need for your home? If the unit is too big, you might end up spending more money than you have to. On the other hand, if you purchase an HVAC unit that is too small, it will end up running constantly, causing it to burn out sooner. In general, HVAC industry professionals are going to use a specific calculation known as the Manual J Load Calculation. This is a Formula that will include the orientation, shape, size, and targeted climate of your home. We will perform this calculation to help you figure out how big of an HVAC system you require.
2. Do I Need To Make Changes To My Ductwork?
There is a great chance that you will not have to make any major changes to your ductwork, but every HVAC system is different. Furthermore, if it has been 20 years since you last replaced your HVAC system, then you may need to make some changes to the ductwork as well. We will take a look at your ductwork when we consider your HVAC system. Then, we will let you know if any changes need to be made.
3. How Do I Choose a Contractor?
In addition to selecting your HVAC system, you need to select the right contractor to install the system. There are several important factors you need to consider when you are looking for a contractor who can install your HVAC unit. For example, you always need to hire a contractor that is properly licensed and insured. You also need to hire a contractor that has the necessary experience working with your type of system. If you have any questions about our reviews and ratings, we encourage you to reach out to us today.
4. How Do I Choose the Right Filter for My HVAC System?
There are several factors you need to consider when you are looking for filters for your HVAC system. For example, you need to select HVAC filters that will protect your air quality and your HVAC system. You might even want to go with some HEPA air filters if you have people in the building who suffer from seasonal allergies. You might even be interested in some niche air filters, such as disposable and washable ones. We would be happy to review your options with you.
5. Should I Replace Everything at the Same Time?
You need to make sure all of the components work together. Even though you do not necessarily have to replace everything, you may have to swap out some parts to ensure they communicate properly. We can take a look at every component of your HVAC system to let you know what has to be replaced and what can stay.
