Your HVAC system plays a big role in your home’s indoor comfort. Since it controls the temperature and humidity inside your home, it can keep summer days cool and winter nights warm and cozy.
Over time, though, your HVAC system will begin to lose efficiency and require a repair or replacement. In this post, home air quality testing expert BPP lists three questions that will help you determine whether or not you need to upgrade your HVAC system.
Do You Really Need an Upgrade?
HVAC systems are designed to last for years, especially when they’re given adequate care and maintenance. However, once they reach the end of their lifespan, it’s best to replace them as soon as possible.
Some signs that you need to change your HVAC system are noise and an unexplained increase in energy consumption. This would be a good opportunity to consider upgrading to a smart HVAC system as well. With its convenience and new features, you can better maximize and improve the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems. Additionally, you might want to consider indoor air quality testing.
What System Suits Your Needs?
The best HVAC system for your home depends on your location, the size of the area and your expectations or preferences. The budget is also an essential factor. There are several different types of HVAC systems to choose from, including standard split systems, geothermal systems and packaged systems. Zoning systems are also becoming popular, their main advantage being that they can create different temperature zones within your home.
Where Should You Install It?
Typically, an HVAC system should be installed in a space that’s not frequented by anyone in your home. This could be your garage, storage room, attic or crawl space. If you don’t have much space, you might want to consider placing it on your rooftop. However, make sure to consult with the experts to determine the load-bearing capacity of your rooftop and ensure it’s safe to have your HVAC unit installed there.
