Why Professional HVAC Replacement Matters
Selecting a new unit for your home comes with several considerations the average homeowner may not be aware of. One such factor is proper HVAC sizing. Installing a unit that is either too big or too small for your space and your needs can be detrimental. When a new unit is too small, it will struggle to keep up with cooling demands, and may never reach the desired temperature you set on your thermostat. This additional strain will cause unnecessary wear and tear, leading to frequent repairs and premature system breakdowns. Conversely, a unit that is too big for the space it’s in will be subject to short-cycling.
Short-cycling is a condition where a unit reaches the desired temperature before it can finish it’s cooling or heating cycle. This may seem like a good thing at first, but it ultimately keeps your unit running in its initial start-up phase, which requires more energy. A short-cycling HVAC unit shuts off before it reaches its optimal performance phase, only to start up again soon after, repeating the cycle. This process leads to higher utility costs over time, and with so much additional strain on your system, it can greatly decrease the unit’s lifespan. A pro technician from the Cardinal heating and air team can evaluate your home and calculate the perfect unit size to ensure you’re getting the best value for your money.
HVAC Replacement: What to Consider
Aside from HVAC sizing considerations, your lifestyle, climate and future plans all play a role in selecting a new unit. Those who plan on selling a property in the near future may want to hold off on installing a brand new unit, while those planning on moving just a few years down the line can enjoy the many benefits of a new system while increasing their home’s value.
Another major consideration when it comes to HVAC replacement comes in the form of a unit’s ease of maintenance. Clients who plan on aging-in-place or who require easy access to a unit to perform regular maintenance tasks, such as replacing air filters, may benefit more from certain types of units than others. Our skilled technicians take all of these factors into consideration as they assist homeowners with HVAC replacement.
