When considering purchasing new residential HVAC equipment for your residence, there are a few things that you will want to keep in mind. First and foremost, you must double-check your existing duct work when you’re thinking about upgrading to a new HVAC unit. What are the purpose of duct work and why is it so important to your HVAC unit? What kind of circulation and ventilation do you need for your HVAC equipment? In addition to purchasing the appropriate equipment, it is also important for you to choose the best HVAC unit for your residence. There are several factors to consider when choosing the right HVAC unit for your home, such as the size of the space you have to HVAC equipment (i.e. the square footage of the room), the energy efficiency rating of the HVAC unit, and the style of the HVAC unit you are looking to purchase.
How to Choose the Best HVAC Equipment?
If you’re considering a new HVAC unit, the best HVAC units on the market today can be installed with a high efficiency heating and cooling system and an electric furnace. The best HVAC units come complete with a high efficiency electric furnace, geothermal heat pump, and a high efficiency heat pump. However, if you’re looking to install a heating and cooling system into your HVAC unit, you will have to choose from two options: a forced air installation or a solar-to-electric conversion system. While forced-air systems tend to be more expensive and take longer to heat and cool your home, a solar-to-electric system is actually more energy-efficient, especially when it comes to energy consumption and energy output. These systems are also much easier to maintain than the forced-air units.
If you’re interested in both heating and cooling, but are concerned that your budget will not allow you to install a full-functioning, high-efficiency HVAC unit, you may be interested in a forced-air installation. Forced-air units require that the homeowner to install an extra vent in their home to bring the HVAC condenser closer to the furnace or air compressor. Although the initial installation costs may be higher, the cons of forced-air are that it requires more maintenance and it generates more harmful indoor air pollutants. On the other hand, geothermal heat pumps are a completely natural and compact solution for any room in the house, even the smallest rooms! There are no cons or upsides to installing either an indoor unit or a geothermal heat pump.
