Choosing an HVAC System for Your New Home

planning to buy a house

To stay comfortable in your new Savannah, Georgia, home, you need a quality HVAC system. Luckily, we’re here to help you make the right decisions. When choosing an HVAC system for your new home, use the following information to guide your selection.

Choose an Efficient Unit

These days, having an HVAC system that’s efficient can save you big while also reducing your impact on the environment. Always choose a system that has the ENERGY STAR logo, as this means it meets efficiency standards defined by the Environmental Protection Agency. In particular, look for labels that carry the phrase "Most Efficient," as these will use the least energy.

Systems with the "Most Efficient" label have a high seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) and energy efficiency ratio (EER). For example, a new split-system AC must have a SEER rating of at least 14.

Decide Between Central or Ductless

The two main choices you have when installing a brand-new HVAC system from scratch are central heating/cooling or ductless heating/cooling. Each system has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Central heating and cooling is the most popular option because of its affordability and efficiency. Plus, all the ducts are hidden inside your walls or attic. However, some treated air does escape while traveling through ducts.

Ductless heating and cooling is a good alternative because it lets you zone your home into separate areas. You also won’t have any loss of air, as it doesn’t have to travel through any ducts to reach your rooms. However, the downside is that each room will have a unit on the wall or ceiling.

After you’ve chosen your new HVAC system, leave the installation process to McDevitt Air.
