PHOENIX, Nov. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- This is a large financial commitment which is why Parker & Sons would like to assist homeowners by advising on HVAC installation.
Homeowners should start by doing extensive research. There are many factors to consider when shopping for a new HVAC system. Older homes may have different heating and cooling needs than newer homes. It is important by buy the correct sized HVAC system. A system which is too small will be inadequate in terms of meeting heating and cooling. A system which is too large will be wasteful. HVAC installers can perform a load assessment on the home to determine what sized HVAC unit is required.
Energy efficiency is an important consideration. The efficiency of an air conditioner is measured by its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). As technology improves the minimum required SEER rating rises. Currently a SEER rating of 13 is the minimum.
Homeowners may have to make a decision balancing upfront cost and energy efficiency. The higher the SEER rating of the unit, the more expensive it is going to be. Many utility companies provide rebates to homes with an air conditioning unit rated about 14.5 SEER.
Homeowners will also have to consider specific climate conditions. Do they live somewhere with extreme winters or extreme summers? Is humidity or aridity a problem? The correct HVAC unit can address many of these concerns. Parker & Sons advises homeowners to take their time when shopping for an HVAC unit. It is important to ask questions.
It is also important to research and choose the right contractor when it comes time for installation. Homeowners should comparison shop by getting multiple written estimates.
"I know buying and installing a new HVAC unit can be a stressful experience. Luckily, it is something we only have to do once every couple of decades if we make the right decision. If homeowners are unsure about anything, they should reach out to us here at Park & Sons. WE would be happy to advises them and help them make the correct decision," said Josh Kelly of Parker & Son.
