HVAC 101: Guide for Homeowners

There is a lot to think about when buying a furnace or central air conditioning system. That's because next to your home itself, a home comfort system is on of your largest investments. Here are answers to a few common questions to help you make an intelligent HVAC choice.

1. Should I repair or replace my existing system?

As a rule of thumb, replace your existing home comfort system when repairs cost 30% of a new purchase or when utility bills have increased 50% as a result of older, less efficient systems using more, higher priced electricity.

2. How much can I save with new equipment?

 Air Conditioning and heating equipment consume about 40% of a home's energy bill. Today's ENERGY STAR qualified systems are as much as 60% more efficient than 10-year-old equipment.

3. Is installing a central HVAC system really necessary?

In new homes or remodels, a central home comfort system is the best solution for overall comfort and superior indoor air quality and humidity control.

4. What is the best thermostat to use with my system?

Look for a programmable thermostat for accurate, reliable, energy-saving performance.

5. How do I select the right heating/cooling system?

Get advice from an expert. The right contractor can perform a load calculation or an energy analysis to determine your operating costs. After getting to know your needs, the contractor can customize a system just for you.
