How To Choose The Right HVAC System For Your Home

When it comes to keeping your home comfortable, an HVAC system is an essential part of the equation. Keeping your home’s climate under control is a major part of how comfortable you’re going to be in every aspect of life at home. J & M Air Conditioning and Heating’s team are experts at keeping your home at the temperature that you want, here are some tips for picking the right system.


Type Of System

One of the first things that you’ll want to decide on is what type of HVAC system you’d like to have installed. There are four basic types of systems:

  • Split system: consists of two units, one for heating and one for cooling.

  • Hybrid system: consists of two units who work closely together, a more advanced form of the split system.

  • Ductless system: consists of an outdoor air conditioning system for cooling and a heat pump, mostly used for homes where ducts cannot be used.

  • Packaged system: consists of a single unit that handles both heating and cooling.

Your HVAC contractor will be able to provide you with expert advice on what system is best for your home.


Choose The Right Size For Your Home

If you choose an HVAC system that is too small, it won't be able to keep your home comfortable. If you choose one that is too large, it will cycle on and off more frequently, leading to higher energy bills. Speak with a professional to get an accurate assessment of the size of the HVAC system your home needs.


Installation And Maintenance Requirements

You should make sure that the HVAC system you choose is installed properly. This means hiring a qualified technician to install the system. They should be able to provide you with a detailed assessment of your home’s needs and answer any questions you may have.

Most HVAC systems also require regular maintenance to continue to operate at a high level and may wear down more quickly if this maintenance isn’t performed. An extended warranty that’s packaged with most HVAC units will cover some of this maintenance cost.
