Picking the right heating, ventilation and cooling system (HVAC) for your house is a decision that you cannot afford to take lightly. The HVAC system is what will ensure that you maintain the appropriate home temperature by warming your house during the cold of winter and cooling it in the warmth of summer. Since the system is a somewhat permanent fixture, you must carefully consider the best option for your own unique circumstances and have it fitted properly.
Having a technical expert with you as you do the purchase is advisable is preferable. The reality though is that this might not always be possible so it would be a good idea for you to familiarize yourself with the various key factors that you need to pay keen attention to when selecting the most ideal system for your house.
The size of your house determines the capacity of the HVAC system you need to purchase. You must go for a system that is able to manage the temperature and air quality of the targeted room. Buying either a high capacity or low capacity system relative to your home is uneconomical-a system with too low capacity system may be ineffective while a larger size will be a waste of power due to under utilization. But you should not only consider size in the sense of distance between walls.
The height of the ceiling and the location and size of the doors and windows will also determine the capacity of system you will need to buy. The number, size of and location of the normal house air vents are another determining factor as well as the overall shape of your house. You must also look at the average number of occupants in the house and the total number of rooms. There ways in which you can save on the capacity that you need to buy. A case in point is improving the level of insulation of the house itself as this will lower the power required to run the system.
Which brings up the issue of the most common climatic conditions in the area where you home is located. Regions with weather patterns on either extreme such as very hot summers and/or biting winters require a system with much higher capacity in order to ensure that indoor conditions remain as close to normal as is possible.
There are many HVAC brands and models that you can choose from each with different levels of complexity and functionality. Such features would include noise reduction, energy conservation system, temperature control zoning, air cleaning system and humidity control. Go for a reputable brand that provides a warranty for their product.
