Factors in Choosing a Heating and Cooling System

Thursday, 27 Nov 2014 - 11:58 am

The heating and cooling system of your home is one of the most integral elements. After all, during the warm weather months, you want to keep cool and comfortable and during the winter there is nothing nicer than walking into a toasty warm room and unwinding after a long day. Of course, these comfortable home temperatures don't just happen. It all comes down to having a heating and cooling system that works when you want it and how you want it.

Of course, when many people purchase a home they have little say about the type of heating and cooling system it comes with. But for those who build a new home – or perhaps find themselves in the unenviable position of having to replace the comfort system in their current home – then choosing a cooling and heating system is a critical decision that will affect the home's comfort-ability. So, how do you choose a comfort system that meets the needs of your home? Is there more to it than simply having a working HVAC system? 

Like anything else in the life of a homeowner, choosing a heating and cooling system is important. So, if you are faced with making a decision regarding a HVAC system, then here are several considerations to keep in mind.

  • Before even thinking about the type of heating and cooling system to use, be sure that you have enough insulation installed throughout your home. From the basement to the attic, having a proper amount of insulation will go a long way toward keeping your home comfortable all year long.

  • What type of energy do you want to use? From geo-thermal to gas, electric to solar the options vary and each offer a variety of pros and cons. Talk to a local heating and cooling company to learn what they recommend for your home.
  • Choose a system that matches the size of your home. A system that is too large will cost you much more in energy bills, while a system that is too small will have to work harder to achieve the comfortlevels you want at a price significantly higher than you will want to pay.

  • Be sure that no matter what system is installed, that you have properly installed ductwork as this, like insulation, is a key element to seeing that your home is comfortable from January to December.

The heating and cooling systems are vital to your home. Choose wisely so that you can keep future problems a very minimal concern level. For questions about heating and cooling, contact the pros at Prescription Heating and Cooling in Woodbury and learn what system will work best for you.
