The DO’s & DON’Ts of Replacing Your HVAC System

April 13th, 2020

Has your HVAC system called it quits? We know it can be hard to keep your Dallas home comfortable during our summer months and having the right HVAC system for your home’s needs is CRUCIAL. When it comes to replacing your system, it’s imperative that you are following these guidelines to ensure you are selecting the correct system for your home.

DO:

Know The Correct Size You Need: HVAC systems are sized based on the square footage of your home. For instance, a two-ton system can effectively control up to 1,400 square feet, whereas a five-ton system can get up to 3,300 square feet. Don’t over- or underestimate your system size!

Establish A Budget: The cost increases with the size of the system. The cost will also vary on what specific part you want replaced – central A/C, central heating, boilers, radiators, or heat pumps. A technician can come to your home and give you an estimate.

Test Out Your New System: You would think that once the new system is in, you could just let it do its job, right? It’s always safer to test it to make sure the HVAC system is in sync and running efficiently before your technician leaves.

DON’T:

Wait For Repairs: Waiting to replace or repair your HVAC system is like avoiding replacing parts on your car until the last minute possible – dangerous. Typically, it increases your costs in the long run and can put your wallet in a pinch more often than not.

Ignore Your Warranty: Know what it says! Some warranties can be extremely helpful and save you some big bucks if something is faulty after installation. On the other hand, you could purchase a unit with a very limited warranty, which may not even be worth the cost.

Forget About Maintenance: Just because you have a new HVAC system doesn’t mean you can leave it on its own for a while. Taking care of your system properly can not only extend the life of your system, but it can even save you money from future repairs. You can help by doing preventative maintenance and leave the repairs to us!

Important Factors To Consider When Replacing Your HVAC System

April 13th, 2020

A properly functioning HVAC is necessary when it comes to the comfort of your home. When you notice that your older system is no longer cooling the way it used to, it’s more than likely time to replace it! Repairs can be costly so opting for a replacement can often make more sense financially. Consider these factors when deciding if a replacement is a right choice for your home’s comfort.

Repair Or Replace

After a long day at work, the last thing you would want to go home to is an uncomfortable home! Spotty cooling or overall higher temperatures are definitely a sign that something’s off with your HVAC system. Depending on the problem at hand, freon could be an easy and affordable fix. Unfortunately, if this is not a refrigerant-related issue, it likely involves the compressor. Compressor-related HVAC issues are costly and, more often than not, it’s best to opt for a replacement.

Energy Efficiency

Cooling and heating systems consume more energy than any other area of your home, so it’s important to make them as efficient as possible. Older HVAC systems aren’t nearly as efficient as newer ones, and this will cost you! Replacing your cooling system can save you up to 40 percent on your monthly bill. Not only will energy-efficient HVAC systems save you monthly, but you will also minimize your ecological footprint! You can find out how efficient your system is by checking its SEER Rating.

Installation

When replacing older systems, you can face more problems than you would when installing a system for the first time. Even if you’re sticking with a central HVAC system, your current ductwork may need to be adjusted, repaired or sometimes replaced. Or you may find that electrical rewiring is needed. Any circumstance that comes up will likely extend the length of the project. It’s important to know what all will need to be done prior to the day of the installation so you have the necessary parts and technicians.
