The Right HVAC Unit for Your Home

A couple of months ago, the HVAC unit in my home started malfunctioning. The temperature inside my home soared to over eighty degrees Fahrenheit, even though my air conditioning system ran nonstop. After inspecting my air conditioning unit, my knowledgeable HVAC contractor recommended I purchase a new system. He discussed the pros and cons of installing different sizes of HVAC units with me. After considering my HVAC contractor’s advice, I decided to purchase a three and a half ton HVAC unit. Shortly after my HVAC contractor installed my new air conditioning unit, my house started feeling more comfortable. On this blog, I hope you will discover how an HVAC contractor can help you select the right air conditioning unit for your home. Enjoy!


The Right HVAC Unit for Your Home

Ready For A New Air Conditioner To Cool You Down? Don't Overlook These 3 Features

by Jamie Shaw

Replacing an HVAC appliance in your home can be costly, but when you need a new air conditioning unit there is a wide variety of options. Of course, you want one of the most efficient units that are on the market so you can save on energy in the warmer months, and the contractors will give you the most efficient options to choose from. Also inquire about these air conditioner features.

Additional Air Purification System

You want to get an additional air purification system that is attached the air conditioning unit. This system will help:

  • Remove allergens and pollutants in the air
  • Prevent moisture from becoming a problem
  • Improve air quality throughout the house

With this system, you won't have to worry about pollen, dander, mold spores, or even dust. The system will reduce the amount of these pollutants a great deal.

Wireless Controls  

A new air conditioner will probably include a new thermostat and wireless control options for the unit. You will then be able to do the following:

  • Get alerts if the temperature is unusually hot or cold in the home
  • Set the air conditioner to your needs as the temperature changes in the day while you are away
  • Shut the unit off from anywhere if there is an emergency

The wireless controls give you more regulation over your air conditioner usage and can help you run your home more efficiently.

Varying Speed Compressor System

The air conditioner shouldn't push air out at the same speed all the time. If the temperature in the house is where it's supposed to be set and it isn't difficult to regulate, the machine will push air out slowly to maintain temperature. If the air was turned on and the house has a lot of change needed to drop the temperature, the unit should work harder and push air out faster. Get a unit with a variable speed compressor system that saves energy.

Get estimates for more than one unit and from more than one company to compare costs for the unit and installation labor. The furnace may also need a tune-up and the ducts may need to be cleaned so the entire HVAC system is ready to work efficiently. Before choosing an installation company and unit, ask about the warranty of the air conditioner you are ready to purchase, and a service warranty from the installation HVAC company you choose.
