22 Jan Air Conditioner / HVAC Installation
The most common questions we have been asked here at Central Heating in Barrie are: What does HVAC mean and what does it do? In short: HVAC means Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning. The main purpose of a Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system is to maintain a comfortable air temperature (warm and cool) and to keep the air quality at a healthy level by filtering the air as it passes through the unit. Without a correctly installed HVAC system in your home, the air will become stagnant and full of dust, allergens and moisture.
So how do you know which HVAC unit is right for your home?
When you install a new air conditioner or HVAC system, you need to keep three things in mind: Buy a unit that’s the right size for your home, purchase an energy efficient model and lastly, make sure it is properly installed by experts like Central Heating.
Having an HVAC unit that is too big or too small won’t work the way it should and can become a costly investment. Unfortunately the majority of units installed in homes are sized incorrectly. This happens because many contractors base the size of the unit they install on the square footage of the home. The fact is, a correctly sized HVAC unit needs to be installed based on cubic square footage in combination with how many windows there are, and how large the attic or crawl space is. If your HVAC unit is too big or too small, you could wind up having a major expense down the road that is completely avoidable.
Purchasing an energy efficient model is essential when you install an air conditioner / HVAC unit. In spite of the ‘green movement’, there are still many models available that waste a lot of energy and will cost you more money than necessary. Central Heating in Barrie only carries the best in energy efficient HVAC units, and will ensure you find the one that is right for you.
The final and most important consideration when determining what HVAC unit is best for you home is to ensure the one you choose is installed correctly. Some contractors will take shortcuts with the installation process and others simply won’t have the expert knowledge required for proper installation. The team at Central Heating will install the HVAC unit in your Barrie home correct and efficiently, saving you money, and keeping your home at a temperature that maintains perfect air quality.
