3 Considerations When Budgeting for a New HVAC System

The HVAC system in your home may have served your comfort needs for years, but your system isn’t going to last forever. As your HVAC system ages, wear and tear on the parts, loss of efficiency and frequent repairs may be all too common issues you’ll face. At some point, you’re going to need to replace it. As you’re budgeting for a new HVAC system, consider the size of your home, the condition of your home’s ductwork, and overall system operating efficiency.

The Size of Your Home

When selecting a new heating and cooling system for your home, ask one of our certified HVAC technicians to perform a load calculation. This measurement analyzes several aspects of your home to determine the correct style and size required to properly heat and cool your living spaces. At Dent AC, our HVAC technicians are knowledgeable about various sizes of HVAC systems and can recommend the correct type to suit your home’s specific heating and cooling needs.

The Condition of Your Home’s Ductwork

Before you plan for a new HVAC system installation, you’ll want to check the condition of your home’s ductwork. Gaps and inadequate insulation in the ductwork can negatively impact your new HVAC system’s performance. If your home’s ductwork needs attention, make sure your budget includes costs for sealing and repairs. Correct any problems with the ductwork before you replace your HVAC system.

Overall System Operating Efficiency

A higher system operating efficiency means reduced energy costs. The lower your energy costs, the less money you’ll spend on your monthly utility bills. Purchasing an energy-efficient HVAC system will deliver a high return on your investment. When evaluating operating efficiency, look for SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) values higher than 14. High SEER values can translate into low operating costs for your new HVAC system.

When you’re preparing for a home air conditioning and heating system replacement, turn to the professionals of Dent AC. Call us at (601) 300-8317 for expert advice to help you select the best new HVAC system for your home.
