Installing a New HVAC System – Things to Consider

If you are installing a new HVAC system or replacing your current HVAC system, it is important to not only get the right type of system for your home, but to find a good heating & air conditioning contractor as well. Here are some of the most important things to consider before installing a new HVAC system in your Myrtle Beach home.

Installing a New HVAC System

In certain climates, you may never use your air conditioning. You can save a lot of money if you don’t install air conditioning or buy a window air conditioner for the few days a year you may need it. The same is true for heating. You can save a lot of money by buying a space heater if you don’t need heating throughout your home for the majority of the year.

We cover this because some of our readers are in these areas where heating or AC may or may not be needed. Around our area in Myrtle Beach, obviously you need both.

 

Next, decide whether you want to install a system that is environmentally friendly or not.

The two most popular green friendly systems are geothermal heating and cooling or solar heating panels. These systems are generally more expensive up front, but will save you money in the long run.

 

Then you need to find a good heating and air conditioning contractor.

If you’re installing a new HVAC system, it is generally best to ask your friends and family for recommendations. Once you have these recommendations, you should research the companies online to ensure that they provide consistent good service for all of their customers.

You should generally get quotes from at least three different contractors. The contractors will recommend the best system for your house and they will be able to calculate what size the system needs to be based on various factors including the square footage of your home. Make sure to weigh the price of the contractor against the quality of their work. While one contractor may be less expensive, if quality of their work is poor, then it may be more expensive in repairs later.

 

Once you have found a good contractor and installed your new HVAC system,

you need to make sure you do the proper maintenance on your system. Some maintenance you will be able to do yourself, but other things you will need to hire a contractor for. Routine maintenance on your HVAC system will not only prevent future problems, but it will also increase the life of your system. Our Myrtle Beach HVAC specialists offer a special maintenance program for our customers.
