Having a new HVAC system installed in your Little Rock, Arkansas, home is a great way to boost efficiency and help you save money off your monthly utility bills. It is always crucial to remember that an HVAC system is a significant investment and a decision that should not be rushed. Before making a final decision, consider the following factors to help you make the best choice for a new HVAC installation.
One of the most vital facets of choosing the right HVAC system is ensuring that it’s the correct size for your home. When your system is too small for your home, it will constantly run, trying to get your home to the desired temperature but failing to reach it. If you choose a system that is too big for your home, it will short cycle, which means it will start and stop constantly. Either way, it will cause your system to run less efficiently and increase your monthly energy bills.
Rebates and Incentives
Many energy-efficient models of HVAC systems may provide you with tax breaks or incentives for upgrading your system to a more energy-friendly option. Check your system’s Energy Star guide and talk with your tax professional and HVAC installer to help find available models that meet the requirement for the rebates and incentives.
Also give consideration to the type of HVAC system you would like to have installed in your home. If installing a system for a new addition, you may want to consider a ductless option to enjoy greater efficiency and control over your home’s comfort. You also will need to look at the type of filters each system uses as well as the maintenance required to keep it functioning properly. Remember to check into the warranties offered once you have narrowed down your search to a few models.
