New House? 3 HVAC Considerations

Congratulations on your new home in beautiful Sunrise, Florida! Buying a new home is an exciting time, but it also comes with many responsibilities. When compiling your to-do list for your new home, be sure to include checking out your HVAC system. Here are a few things you should be aware of as you settle into your new home.

Check Sizing

The first thing you should do is ensure that your HVAC unit is properly sized. Many homeowners aren’t aware of the different sizing requirements of HVAC units. So, if the previous owners didn’t use NATE-certified technicians for the system installation, it may not be correct for your home. Units that are too large can lead to unevenly cooled or heated homes, while too-small units can suck up energy and run nearly continuously. Have your HVAC system’s load measured by a professional so you can determine whether your unit is a good fit or if you will need to consider purchasing a different size when it’s time for a new system installation.

Establish Age

Next, knowing how old your HVAC unit is can save you a lot of headaches in the future. HVAC systems can last for quite a while, but if the unit is over 12 – 15 years old, you may want to start making plans to buy a new one. Of course, some units can run longer than that, but building the cost into your budget can help you manage more easily when the time comes.

Consider Maintenance

HVAC maintenance can help ensure that your new unit is running smoothly and efficiently. Whether you opt for a one-time checkup or an annual appointment, getting your unit checked by a professional is important. This lets you know how the unit is performing and if there are any issues that need to be addressed. Most importantly, professional maintenance gives you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your climate control system is functioning correctly!
