What to Look for When Buying a HVAC System

If you’re in the market for a new HVAC system, you may find the sheer range of system types and brand overwhelming. From conventional units such as heat pumps to the latest in ductless mini split technology, geothermal, and high velocity systems, you need to make certain that your heating and cooling system is not only appropriately sized for your home, but also that it’s within budget and installed correctly. At G&S Heating, Cooling & Electrical, we can make that happen. Our North Seattle heating technicians are highly skilled at finding unique solutions that match your heating needs and the size of your living space. Let’s take a look at what to look for when buying a new HVAC system. Call us today to learn more.

  • Size. The size of your new heating and cooling system is incredibly important to its future operation. You simply cannot expect great performance and energy efficiency if your system is inappropriately sized. During installation, our North Seattle heating technician will perform a load calculation to determine what the cooling output of your new HVAC should be. This is crucial. If the system is too large, it will be inefficient; if too small, it will ineffective.
  • SEER. Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, commonly abbreviated as SEER, is numeric rating given to HVAC system sold in the US. It gives you an estimate of the air conditioner’s efficiency over the course of a single cooling season. The ratio between electrical energy input and cooling output is an important one to keep in mind, especially considering how much we need our cooling systems during the summer.
  • Ducts or no ducts. When you’re in the market for a new HVAC system, you’ll need to decide between conventional ductwork and ductless systems. Both types have their merits, and you need to take various considerations into account, including the size of your home, whether you have existing ductwork, and your budget.
