3 Things To Consider When Installing A New HVAC System

When you install a new HVAC system, you want to make sure that you install the best possible system for your home. You want to make sure that the HVAC system is set up to function at optimum levels for your home.

#1 Get A Smart Thermostat

When installing a new HVAC system, you want to start with a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat will allow you to program what temperature you want your home throughout the day. Maybe you want it to be cooler when you sleep, warmer when you are awake, and cooler while you are at work. With a smart thermostat, you can set your thermostat up so that is all possible and repeatable.

A smart thermostat does more than that though. A smart thermostat also tells you when to change your air filter, when your AC system needs an inspection, and other maintenance issues. A smart thermostat helps you take care of your home.

#2 Get Your Ductwork Insulated

When you have the ductwork installed for your new HVAC system, make sure that the ductwork is insulated. This is a step that most people make down the line when they upgrade and work on their HVAC system.

When you have a new HVAC system installed, you have a unique opportunity to install your HVAC system and insulated ductwork, which will ensure that your system sends air in a manner that is as effective as possible.

#3 Be Strategic With Placement of Vents

Finally, be strategic with the placement of vents. If possible, have a professional inspect your home and create a chart and system for installing vents. You want the vents that you install to effectively heat your home and you want the number of vents in your home to be fully supported by your HVAC system. Too many or too few vents can cause your home to not heat properly and can stress out your HVAC system. Make sure that you have a vent in each room in your home as well as more than one vent in large rooms. Keep in mind that a long hallway may count as a room if you want your home to heat evenly, and don't forget about the bathrooms.

When you install a new HVAC system, make sure that you start with a smart thermostat and insulated ductwork. Be strategic and smart with the placement of vents so you don't have cold spots in your home and so that your HVAC system works as effectively as possible.
