Has your HVAC unit stopped working and you’re in the market for a new one? Or are you preparing to buy your first heating and air conditioning unit and need some pointers? Here are the things to consider before shelling out for an HVAC unit:
How much are you willing to spend?
There are 2 expenses to be considered here: the cost of the unit and the long-term cost of running it. HVAC units with high energy efficiency translate to lower bills and lower operating costs. As expected, they are more expensive.
How big is your living space?
Before going HVAC shopping, know the specifications of your apartment/home/condo, etc. The size of the area you want to cool/heat determines the capacity of HVAC you need. Yes, smaller units are ideal for smaller apartments, but specifics are important.
Are you ready for constant maintenance?
Is the air duct well-insulated? Is the furnace filter clean? Is the cooling system working optimally? These are the questions you need to answer regularly. If your air duct is leaky, your unit won’t work at full efficiency and you will end up paying higher electricity bills. As you are buying and installing the HVAC, be prepared for the regular maintenance that the system requires.
