HVAC: Keeping Your Cool In the Summer

Hey! My name is Danny and this is my new HVAC blog. HVAC might seem like a really boring subject, but have you ever considered that when you enter the local shopping mall or your place of work, the only reason it feels comfortable is because of the complex HVAC systems. I only came to truly appreciate my HVAC system when it stopped working. It was a really hot day in Sydney and I came home from work to discover the inside of my home was hotter than the surface of the sun. I called in a contractor who fixed up the HVAC system and gave me some great tips. Since then, I have been finding out all I can about the world of HVAC.

How To Choose An Effective Heating And Cooling System For Your Home

When you decide to install a new heating or cooling system in your home, you have to work out which system to use and how to power it. If you take some time to think about your needs, then you're more likely to find a system that works effectively with the right purchasing, installation and running costs.

What should you think about before you decide which system to install?

Your Home

It's important to choose a heating and cooling system to match the size of your home. If you live in a small apartment, then your needs aren't the same as they would be if you lived in a large house.

Work out how many rooms you need to heat and cool. You should buy a system that can effectively cover these spaces.

If your system is too powerful, then you pay more than you need to. However, if it is too small, then it won't work effectively or last as long. It will cost more to run because it has to work too hard to provide the right levels of air conditioning and heating. This extra stress can make systems wear down and fail faster.

Your Local Climate

Local climates affect how much heating and cooling you need. They also affect how well some systems work.

Think about your seasonal temperatures. If you have very hot summers and mild winters, then look for a system with high cooling performance. While you also want some heat in winter, this part of your system is less important.

The climate also affects the type of power you choose. For example, you might be keen to install a heat-pump system. However, if you live in an area with mild or colder temperatures, then a heat pump might not create the power you need to run your system.

Your Budget

Different heating and cooling systems have different costs. If you have some leeway in terms of how much you can spend, then the cost doesn't affect your choice.

However, if you have a limited budget, then cost may be a factor in your system choice. For example, you might not be able to afford to retrofit a full ducted system if your home doesn't already have this infrastructure in place. You'll pay extra to have ducting and ducts installed through your walls.

Here, it might be better to choose a system with fewer installation requirements. For example, you'll still get effective heating and cooling from a system of wall-mounted units without extra construction costs.
