Air conditioning and heating are essential for most homes. It keeps you comfortable in the summer when the heat reaches up in the ’90s and keeps you warm during the cold and icy winters when the temperatures dip below freezing. But, whether you are building a new home, need to install a new HVAC system, or simply get one, to begin with, it can be exciting.
Sometimes the focus of a homeowner is on what an HVAC system looks like, but it is a bit more important to know how it will affect your home. This might include how it will impact your utility bills and the different payment options to purchase the HVAC system. The most important part of this process is to choose the system. Here are three important tips to determine the best Best Denver HVAC system for your home in Colorado.
Pick the Right Size
This is one of the most important decisions when installing a new HVAC system. You may want to work with an HVAC contractor along with your building contractor to decide which is right for your home. Although you may think this does not matter, it truly does.
If your system is too small, then it will not properly cool or heat your home. If the unit is too large, it can result in short-cycling which means your home will once again suffer from completely inconsistent temperatures. Overall, your system will work too hard in either context.
Choose the Type of HVAC System
There are many different forms of HVAC systems to choose from. The best system is essentially a central air system, but this is also the most expensive. Sometimes you may consider a different type of system as well if you do not want to change the integrity of the home.
You may simply choose one of the following:
- Ductless split systems: These systems do not use ducts. Instead, they deliver the air directly from different air handlers. These are typically placed all over the home to deliver direct air to that room.
- Heat pumps: If you are building a new home then this is a good plan. It allows you to lay different heat exchanger loops underground while building. These pumps work to save energy.
Do You Need an Air Purification System?
Everyone has a different lifestyle, and if you are someone who needs to avoid allergens, then this may be important to you. Although Denver has some of the best air in the country, it is still a city. Especially for those who have pets or are allergic to dust, consider adding an air purifier to the HVAC system to keep the air clean in your home.
