Are you building a new home in Hernando County, Florida? One of the things you’ll have to go over in your construction is the HVAC system of your new property. Planning for an air conditioning and heating system installation can be a pain in itself. But doing it right can mean year round comfort in the Sunshine State.
There are a number of different systems in the market. What system should you get? Here is a short guide.
Florida may have warm weather. But there are times when the temperature drops, so you’ll still need heating. Choose a system based on efficiency. You can get 80% efficiency heating systems that have simple unit designs. On the other hand, you can also get 90% or higher efficiency heating systems that are more reliable and more updated.
Type of Heating
You can also decide based on the type of heating. First, you have the single-stage system, which only turns on and off. Second, you have the two-stage system which has a high and low setting; this type is more efficient and flexible. Lastly, you have the modulating system, which allows you to adjust the heating, at any point, between on and off.
Air Conditioning Factors
For your air conditioner, choose a system based on efficiency and capacity. On efficiency, consider a level starting from 13 SEER, the minimum legal standard. On capacity, work with your HVAC provider to determine the needed capacity relative to your home’s measurements and insulation values.
Now you have to decide on a maintenance agreement with your HVAC provider. To choose, determine the cost of one maintenance session, and then compare it with the cost indicated in a maintenance contract. You can also do a background check on the service provider to ensure its credibility and reliability.
Once done, you can finally rest and not worry about your HVAC system.
