Central heating and air conditioning is… nice.
In fact, if you’ve ever experienced summer on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, you know that that’s probably the understatement of the century. Central heating and air conditioning is more than nice; it’s necessary.
So when it comes time to start thinking about purchasing a new HVAC system for your home, it’s time to call Air Handlers OBX. Not only are we the Outer Banks’ go-to guys for HVAC repair and installation, we also know a thing or two about:
Shopping for HVAC
First, of course, there is cost.
A new HVAC system for your home is a huge investment, and purchase cost is clearly a big deciding factor for many consumers, but just as the case may be when shopping for a car, or a home, cheaper usually doesn’t mean better. Pay a little more up front for advanced features or energy saving technology, and chances are you’ll save more money in the long run.
Consider the cost, and then consider these other just-as-important features when you are shopping to purchase a new heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system for your home on the Outer Banks.
Do you know the exact square footage of your house? You should, at least before going shopping for your new HVAC unit. A system that is too small, or one that is too large will cause the unit to work too hard, or not hard enough. An experienced HVAC technician (Hey, wouldn’t you know Air Handlers OBX employs more than a few of those?) will be able to tell you what sized HVAC system will fit your home juuust right.
Efficiency ratings are one of the best markers of value. It’s common sense if you think about it: The higher a unit’s efficiency rating, the better it’ll do its job. When shopping for a new central air conditioning system, you’ll want to look for a unit with a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) between 10 and 16. Keep this in mind, and you’ll be comfortable and cool, all summer long.
The last thing you want, when you’re shelling out the money for a new central heating and air condition system is for it to need constant repairs. Not only is this incredibly inconvenient (Can you imagine, August on the Outer Banks with no AC? No, thank you.), but it’ll cost you more than a little in repairs and service costs.
