Top Decisions That Should Be Made When Installing A New HVAC System


Installing a new heating and air conditioning system in your home is a big deal, and there are a lot of decisions that need to be made along the way. These are some of the decisions that will need to be made during this time.

Do You Need More Than One Unit?

If you have a smaller, one-level home, you probably won't need more than one heating and air conditioning unit. For bigger homes or homes that have multiple floors, on the other hand, it's sometimes a good idea to install more than one heating and air conditioning unit.

Will You Be Setting Up Multiple Zones?

In some cases, even in bigger homes, it isn't actually necessary to purchase and install multiple HVAC systems. Instead, you can set up multiple "zones." If you aren't sure of what this means or whether or not it might be a good choice for your home's size and layout, you may want to talk to a knowledgeable HVAC system installation professional.

Is the Ductwork in Good Condition?

If your home has existing ductwork, you might be planning on using that existing ductwork along with your new HVAC unit. This can save you a lot of money, but you'll want to make sure that the ductwork is in good condition first. An HVAC professional can help you determine this, and they can help with things like repairing slightly damaged ductwork or cleaning your ducts so that you'll be ready for the installation of your new heating and air conditioning system.

Does Wiring or Gas Line Work Need to Be Done?

Of course, you'll need to make sure that the electrical wiring, gas line, or both are in good condition before installing a new HVAC system. This is important both for safety reasons and to help ensure that your new system works as it is supposed to once it's all set up.

Where Should the Unit Be Installed?

In many cases, an entire central heating and air conditioning unit is installed outside of the home. In the case of split-system units, a furnace is installed inside the house, an air conditioning unit is installed outdoors. An HVAC system installation professional can help you determine what type of set-up is right for your home. Then, they can help you determine where each unit should be placed. Typically, you'll want to place the unit in the same place that your last unit was placed. If you want to move things around for some reason or another, however -- such as if you have made changes to your backyard or if you want to make changes sometime soon -- then an HVAC installation professional can assist you with choosing a new spot for your new unit.

Shopping For A New HVAC System

After my sister moved into my house with me, she started complaining about the temperature. I had never really thought about it before, or maybe I was just used to it, but my house was pretty cold. She told me that she didn't think the furnace was working properly, so I started checking things out on my own. Sure enough, my furnace seemed to be having some serious problems. I started looking for a replacement, and I was able to find a great furnace for much less than what I initially thought I would need to spend. I wanted to make this blog for anyone out there who might need to shop for a new HVAC system. Check out these great articles for information you might need.
