If you are looking for a new HVAC, keep these heating and air conditioning features in mind.
Selecting new heating and air conditioning equipment can be nerve-wracking. With so many options, it helps to have a trusted service repair pro to give you advice. Look for companies that deal with major manufacturers like Lennox, Heil, Rheem, or Trane. Look for shops that are up to date on the latest HVAC technology and are both willing and capable of answering relevant questions.
When selecting a new HVAC system, it helps to prioritize the following:
- Efficiency: High efficiency units don’t just use less energy to keep your home comfortable. Sometimes you can find special financing, grant programs, or tax credits available for homeowners who take advantage of them. These programs can make units significantly more affordable while providing the best long-lasting value.
- Humidifying components: Heating, cooling, and humidity go hand in hand. It’s no surprise to South Carolinians that hot, moist air feels warmer than dry heat. The opposite is true, too. Dry air feels cooler. Companies have been able to harness these principles in order to optimize indoor climate control. In the process, humidifying and dehumidifying elements can help protect your home and your health from the problems that come with humidity that is too high or too low.
- Air purification: Indoor air is often dirty. Pet dander, toxic chemicals, fumes coming off of paint and hidden mildew and mold can all have an impact on your health. A 2012 study by the Duke University Medical Center proved that UV elements are effective at sterilizing and destroying contaminants in the air. Installing one of these add-ons can help you breathe easier.
From special thermostats capable of programming themselves to zoned heating and cooling areas that maximize every dollar you spend, every day brings new technology to HVAC systems.
