Acquiring a new furnace and air conditioning system is a major investment and All American Air Service Experts appreciates that. But, when you consider your options, there are a few fundamental questions that you need answers for in order to assure you have the most energy-efficient and affordable choice for your Daytona Beach area home. Now let’s examine what you should understand about a new home comfort system.
What Exactly Makes Up A Heating & Air Conditioning System?
Your home’s Heating, Ventilation & Air Conditioning (HVAC) system, what All American Air Service Experts refers to as the “home comfort system”, typically consists of three major components:
- The furnace, which facilitates heat and air movement
- The condenser, the air conditioner or cooling equipment, and
- One or several products that governs air quality and humidity levels in your home
In some Daytona Beach area homes, a heat pump may be used in place of a furnace and condenser. Heat pumps remove indoor heat in the hot months and add outdoor heat in latter months of the year. Operating via the thermostat, these primary components monitor your indoor environmental comfort level. Like the engine of a truck, the home comfort system is the instrument of your home that ‘drives’ your family’s indoor comfort each day.
The Real Key Is Quality Installation
A new home comfort system must be sized and measured correctly for your specific home in order to determine the selection of equipment and options that can be properly installed. The quality of the installation is extremely important in that process. If the installation is conducted inadequately, the equipment, energy-efficiency and your comfort suffers dramatically. No matter how much you spend, the equipment will probably undergo frequent repair problems in the future if the install was shotty. So it’s really important to work with an HVAC contractor that can demonstrate their installation quality.
Look At All Potential Features And Options
There are a number of makes, models, features and options of comfort equipment available to select from. You are best served by researching every option to ensure your home’s air quality, humidity level, temperature and energy-consumption ideal for the health and comfort of your family. A decent home comfort company will assist you in identifying your family’s specific comfort needs and desires, then simply walk you through the most sensible and affordable choices that will meet those needs for you. When they're done, you should have everything you need to make a choice that fits your budget and satisfies your family’s needs.
Energy Savings Now Prevail
A reliable 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 conveniently map the additional savings of high-efficiency heating and air conditioning products.
Uncovering hidden saving thru a reduction in household energy consumption are big factors because the cost of operating a heating and air conditioning system is often overlooked when estimating your budget. Imagine if your home comfort system could produce a check for $700 each year, what would you do with the extra money in your pocket? As the cost of energy continues to escalate, high-efficiency equipment becomes more and more beneficial to your family’s budget. By the same token, as heating and air conditioning manufacturers move toward making more efficient equipment, the outside environment also benefits. So carefully consider high-efficiency equipment. It’s equipment designed to save much more than just your utility bills; it's environmentally conscious.
Will The Company Be Able To Honor Your Warranty?
When comparing Warranties and Guarantees from various Daytona Beach area companies, carefully consider and aggressively question the financial backing, history and longevity of the businesses you might assign the job. 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 make much difference if the issuing company is not around when you need to use it. The company should be viable enough to present you favorable financing so you can further leverage the financial investment with low, easy to manage monthly payments. The risk with a lot of smaller companies is that they are sold or just go out of business.
In short, the manufacturer of the equipment will usually warrant flaws in the equipment, but the installing company independently guarantees the installation work.
