If you’re looking to buy a new home or your old HVAC equipment has bitten the dust, you may be thinking either one of two things:
- “Well, it was good while it lasted, but I don’t need this anymore.”
- “I don’t need to have this installed in my home, do I?”
Wrong! HVAC equipment does in fact have more uses than the very obvious heating and cooling features. We’re going to go over those very reasons right now.
Reason 1: Temperature Control
Let’s just get the obvious out of the way first. Yes, heating and cooling are both very handy to have in order to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. That’s why most homes built now usually contain a furnace and central air conditioning when they’re first built. However, these are not all features that come when, say, you rent an apartment or move into an older house. Regarding the latter, we’re not just talking about housing that existed 5 years ago; we’re talking about real estate that existed circa 1980 and older.
Whatever home you live in, no one wants to find out they can’t control the temperature when things get too uncomfortable. Having HVAC equipment installed can help maintain a livable temperature and ensure everyone is comfortable living where they’re living.
Reason 2: Ventilation
Sunny rooms in a house are not the only rooms that benefit from ventilation. Computer rooms that contain many wires and electronics, kitchens, bedrooms, and virtually any area where people with allergies are living (more on that later) will require ventilation. This will not only keep the rooms cooled down and the temperature under control, but also it will help other assets keep running at their usual capacity without risk of overheating or underperforming.
Reason 3: Allergen Prevention
Those living with allergies know how important it is to keep everything clean, including and especially the air! Every piece of HVAC equipment that is built now comes with a filter (and extras if it gets too dirty to clean) so that allergen triggers such as pollen, dust, or other debris are filtered out by the system, whether it’s in the furnace or air conditioning. This helps make sure the air is fresh and free of allergens.
Reason 4: Comfort
A/C and furnaces are not the only things considered to be essential for a comfortable lifestyle. Refrigerators, outdoor heaters, hot water tanks, and heat pumps are all built to keep our lives comfortable by warming things up or cooling them off when we want them to. These are all engrained into our daily lives so tightly that it’s easy to take them for granted…that is, until something in the units breaks down or stops working properly. That’s why maintenance is so important! (We even have a full article explaining why.)
Reason 5: Cost
Did you know that it actually costs more money to rely on older equipment than it would to replace it with the latest tech? It’s also important to note that the older your house is, the more expensive it can be to keep it properly hot or cold. If your home has any equipment within it that predates the 80s, you may want to consider upgrading to newer systems. That way, after the fact, you will actually be saving money rather than spending it on your energy bills (not to mention the new stuff is built to be safer for homes!). Speaking of energy…
Reason 6: Energy Efficiency
Our energy costs are higher now than they used to be back in the 80s. We also have better insulation in the homes we build and less interest in being wasteful with our money. Most of the latest HVAC equipment built today is not based upon how fast a room can be cooled down or heated up. Instead, they’re built based on how much energy they spend, which is typically measured by the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) and however many BTUs (British Thermal Units) are required to get the job done.
However efficient the systems are, their efficiency will all depend on your home’s location, climate, humidity levels, and size. If you’re not sure about any of these things, it never hurts to ask a professional!
Whichever HVAC equipment you own or choose to own, it should do all of the following:
- Make your life easier
- Keep your bills at a low cost
- Be energy saving
- Make your home comfortable and awesome to live in
