Points to Consider When Buying a New HVAC System in East Syracuse

March 09, 2015

Acquiring a new furnace and A/C unit is a significant investment and Falso Service Experts recognizes that. But, when you consider your options, there are a few fundamental questions that you need answered in order to reasonably guarantee you have an energy-saving and cost-effective option for your East Syracuse area home. So let’s examine what you should learn about a new home comfort system.

What Precisely Makes Up A Heating & Air Conditioning System?

Your home’s Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC) system, what Falso Service Experts refers to as the “home comfort system”, typically is made up of three major components:

  1. The furnace, which creates heat and air movement
  2. The condenser, the air conditioner or cooling equipment, and
  3. One or several products that governs air quality and humidity levels in your home

In some East Syracuse area homes, a heat pump may be used instead of a furnace and condenser. Heat pumps expel indoor heat in the May – September time-period and add outdoor heat in winter. In conjunction with the thermostat, these primary components control your indoor environmental comfort level. Like the engine of a truck, the home comfort system is the mechanism of your home that ‘drives’ your family’s indoor comfort each day.

Quality Installation Is The Key

The specs of your home dictate the choices available to you for a home comfort system. The quality of the installation is essential in that process. If the installation is conducted inadequately, the equipment, energy-efficiency and your comfort level is dramatically impacted. Irregardless of how much you spent, the equipment will probably undergo frequent repair problems in the future if the install was bad. So it’s really important to work with an HVAC contractor that can prove their installation quality.

Think About All Available Features And Options

There are hundreds of makes, models, features and options of comfort equipment available to choose from. You’ll want to look into every option to ensure your home’s air quality, humidity level, temperature and energy-consumption ideal for the health and comfort of your family. An ethical home comfort company will assist you in identifying your family’s specific comfort needs and desires, then carefully walk you through the most sensible and affordable choices that will meet those needs for you. When they're completed, you should have all the resources you need to make a choice that fits your budget and satisfies your family’s needs.

Reduce Energy Consumption

A credible home comfort company will also execute what’s called a heating and cooling load calculation and an energy-efficiency analysis on your home. These calculations not only determine the proper type of equipment needed, they show how you can benefit from the additional savings of high-efficiency heating and air conditioning products.

Energy-efficiency and utility savings are essential factors because the cost of operating a heating and air conditioning system is often overlooked when figuring out your budget. Think about it - if you can save $700 per year in utility costs with your new home comfort system, what would you do with the unexpected money? As energy costs rise in the future, high-efficiency equipment becomes increasingly helpful to your family’s budget. Equally important, as heating and air conditioning manufacturers produce more efficient equipment, our climate also benefits. So carefully consider high-efficiency equipment. It’s equipment intended to save much more than just your utility bills; it's environmentally conscious.

Only Stability Makes Warranties And Guarantees Matter

When comparing Warranties and Guarantees from various East Syracuse area companies, strongly consider and aggressively question the financial health, history and longevity of the company you are dealing with. There are a lot of cheap service pitches out there; buyer beware. A paper certificate does not help you if the issuing company is not around to honor it. The company should be viable enough to supply you with financing options that include manageable, monthly payments. The risk with a lot of smaller companies is that they are sold or just go out of business.

In summary, the manufacturer of the equipment will typically warrant difficulties in the equipment, but the installing company alone guarantees the installation work.
