Three Questions You Should Ask When Purchasing a New HVAC Unit

Purchasing a new HVAC system is a major cost for any homeowner, and making the right decision is so important. But where do you start? The team at Excalibur in Orange County knows that an informed consumer makes the best customer when it comes to choosing the right HVAC unit for your home.
Here are a few questions to ask your HVAC service technician before you make a decision about what system you need to heat and cool your home properly and cost effectively:

  1. How big of a system do I need to adequately heat and cool my home?

A reputable HVAC technician will take measurements of your home and check the ductwork and current airflow throughout the home in order to calculate the correct system for your needs. The technician will also check if there are hot or cold spots in your home. From there you should be given several estimates for systems that could fit into your plan.

  1. Is zoned heating and cooling the best option for everyone?

The simplest explanation is that zoned systems will help you heat or cool only certain rooms – individually. There are many types of zoned heating and cooling systems, and a professional HVAC technician can show you various options that can help reduce energy consumption.

  1. Are there units that will reduce my energy bill and provide rebates or incentives?

Today we are lucky to have many options that are energy-efficient yet still offer powerful heating and cooling. Many of those options do qualify the homeowner for credits through rebates or incentives. Your HVAC service technician should be able to provide you with a list of every system he or she offers that has a credit or rebate, along with all the restrictions and rules.
