Shopping around for a new HVAC unit can be a little stressful since it’s such a big purchase. The good news is that you have us by your side to give you a helping hand. Follow these tips and you’ll be able to find the perfect replacement for your existing equipment.

Start by Choosing the Right Size

The first thing you’ll need to do when you’re in the market for a new HVAC unit is to choose a correctly sized system. Installing a system that’s too big or too small will cause heating and cooling problems. You’ll end up wasting energy and money, sometimes forcing you to replace the system a second time (which would be really bad).

Look for an Energy-Efficient Unit

Whenever you’re in the market for an HVAC system, we always suggest that you look for the most efficient unit within your budget. If you go with one with a SEER rating of 15 or higher, your utility bills could be cut by 30% or more. This is one of the best investments you can make for your home.

Purchase a Compatible Thermostat

When you install a new HVAC unit, you want to make sure that it will be compatible with your programmable or smart thermostat. This is pretty easy to do these days because modern devices typically work very well together. If there’s a compatibility problem, however, then you may simply need to upgrade your thermostat.

Hire a Reliable HVAC Contractor

An HVAC contractor will be able to assist you with choosing the right HVAC unit for your home and will then install it for you. To find one that’s reliable, check the contractor’s years of experience and make sure that they’re properly licensed and certified. You can also get a pretty good feel for their level of professionalism by speaking with them over the phone for just a few minutes.
