Is it time to replace your HVAC?
HVAC – When your heating and cooling system is 15 to 20 years old and is continuing to experience issues, it may be time for you to install a NEW Energy Efficient System.
Rhymes Heating and Cooling would like to answer some of the questions you may have regarding the purchase of a NEW HVAC system.
Should I replace all my HVAC system at the same time?
We feel that replacing all components of your Heating and air conditioning system at the same time is the best decision for several reasons. The components while able to be installed individually, work better when they are the same make and age. You can put a new Air conditioner on an old furnace however the blower that is pushing the air through that new coil may or may not be perfectly sized for the application as it would be if everything is designed to work together. You also have a higher rebate potential. Most systems will qualify for rebates from the manufacturer and utility companies. These rebates are always higher when a system is replaced entirely because the rated efficiency will be higher.
What size of HVAC system do I need?
Great question, it is very important that a home have a properly sized air conditioning system. If it’s too small, it will not be able to provide adequate cooling during the heat of the summer. If it’s too large, the unit will run very short cycles and while your home will be cool, the humidity will be very high. The air conditioner is removing humidity from the air within your home as it runs. If the unit cannot run long enough cycles, the humidity will not be removed, this can lead to a clammy uncomfortable feeling much like you might feel in a cave or musty basement. At Rhymes Heating and Cooling we will access your home and its heat loss/gain to determine the adequate size system you will need.
What type of system should I buy?
There are several very good brands to choose from and within those brands there are several different levels of efficiencies, features and benefits. Do your homework and make sure your getting a quality unit from a manufacturer that will stand behind its product. Even more important than the brand is the installing contractor. Rhymes Heating and Cooling is a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer.
