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 substantial 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. To that end, let’s examine what you should understand 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”, often 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 the colder months. In conjunction with the thermostat, these primary components control your indoor environmental comfort level. Like the engine of a car, 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 lousy. So it’s really important to work with a company that can prove their installation quality.

Think About All Possible Features And Options

There are a myriad of makes, models, features and options of comfort equipment available to select from. You’ll want to look into every option that can make your home’s air quality, humidity level, temperature and energy-consumption exactly the way you desire for your family’s lifestyle and health needs. 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 reputable 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 demonstrate the additional savings of high-efficiency heating and air conditioning products.

Saving money each month thru energy reduction are essential factors because the cost of operating a heating and air conditioning system is usually not factored when estimating your budget. Imagine if your home comfort system could produce a check for $700 each year, what would you do with the unexpected money? When energy costs go up, high-efficiency equipment becomes increasingly helpful to your family’s budget. Likewise, as heating and air conditioning manufacturers move toward making more efficient equipment, the outdoor environment 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.

Who Are You Dealing With?

When evaluating Warranties and Guarantees from various East Syracuse area companies, strongly consider and aggressively question the financial stability, history and longevity of the businesses you may work with. There are plenty of inexpensive, inexperienced HVAC service companies doing business today; they are the companies you will want to watch out for. A paper certificate does not help you if the issuing company is not around tomorrow and you’re stuck with a poorly installed, malfunctioning system. The company should be viable enough to supply you favorable financing so you can further leverage the financial investment with low, easy to manage monthly payments. The risk with many smaller companies is that they are sold or just go out of business.

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