Questions to ask when Buying a New HVAC System

Questions to Ask When Buying a New HVAC System

Buying a new HVAC system may not be how you want to spend your money. However, investing in a new HVAC system is smart for your home, especially in Texas. Just like everything else, HVAC systems have improved significantly over the years. Here are five questions to ask when buying a new HVAC system.

1. How much will a new HVAC System Cost, and do you have discounts or rebates?

A few factors will determine the cost of your new HVAC system. However, the average cost of buying a new HVAC system tends to range between $5,000 and $10,000. Factors that will affect the cost of an HVAC system are location, layout of your home, HVAC size, and special features. 

Now through August 11, you can save up to $1,850 in system rebates with Lennox and get up to $150 in combined rebates on air purification, zoning, and a smart thermostat. If you have any questions about air quality solutions, anything about Lennox, their spring promotion, or general HVAC-related questions, don’t hesitate to call us. We pride ourselves on bringing home comfort wherever we go!

2. What size HVAC system do I need, and how is that calculated? 

Just like cost, a few factors play into what size HVAC your home needs. Energy efficiency can be affected if your system is too big or too small for your home. Your HVAC technician will assess how much square footage you have, your insulation, and the number of windows in your home. The only reliable way to determine the best size HVAC for your home is to have an AERO Technician come to your home and perform a load calculation.

3. Is the new HVAC System Energy-Efficient? 

According to the US Department of Energy, air conditioners use about 6% of all the electricity produced in the United States, at an annual cost of about $29 billion to homeowners,  and an old air conditioner could be costing you significantly more in electricity if it is nearing the end of its lifecycle. Here are four reasons why a new HVAC can save you money. Lennox ENERGY STAR products are some of the most efficient HVAC systems available. Also, pay attention to the SEER rating on new HVAC systems. The minimum allowable SEER rating for a new unit in the southern region is 14. This means your system is consuming less energy, costing you less monthly.

4. Does my new HVAC System Require Maintenance? 

Whether your unit is brand new or ten years old, you should have your HVAC system on a bi-annual maintenance schedule. Having your HVAC system professionally serviced ensures the unit is operating at its peak performance. Contact us today to get your HVAC System on a maintenance schedule!

5. Should I Install a Smart Thermostat? 

Smart thermostats can regulate your home’s temperature more effectively and allow you to remotely manage your home’s heating and cooling systems. With a smart thermostat installed, you can often zero in on the correct temperature in your home to save you money on your energy bill and create a schedule for heating and cooling. Some smart thermostats predict savings of 10-23% on heating and cooling costs.
