If your heating and air conditioning system is on the blink or worn out, it’s time to start looking for something new. But it doesn’t have to be a nightmare, as long as you know what you’re doing. Here are some tips to help you know what to look for when you’re buying a new air conditioner or heating unit:

Look for Energy Efficiency

Heating and cooling technology has come a long way in the last 5-10 years, and energy efficiency is a top priority. You can get units that are upwards of 98% efficient. That will save you a lot of money in energy costs over time, at the same time you’re doing a good thing for the planet.

Look for the Right Price for Your Budget

Don’t go cheap. You get what you pay for, especially when it comes to HVAC equipment. Don’t overextend yourself, but buy the most energy efficient unit you can. It will pay off in savings over the life of the unit.

Look for the Right Size Unit for Your Home

Size really matters when it comes to your heating and cooling systems. A unit that is too small or too large will waste energy because it’s not efficient for the space. Count on a trusted HVAC tech to help guide you to the right size equipment for the size of your home.

Don’t put off shopping for a new HVAC system because you’re afraid it’s going to be overwhelming. With a few easy tips, it can be easier to sort through all of the information.
