Are you in the market for a new HVAC system in 2019? Though choosing the right heater and air conditioner for your home can seem like a daunting task, it is important that you do your research and find a system that will be able to meet your home comfort needs now and in the future. Below, we’ve put together a quick guide to choosing a new HVAC system and finding the right HVAC contractor to provide expert installation.

Choosing a New HVAC System

With so many different brands and types of HVAC systems, the task of finding the best new heating and cooling system for your home may seem a little daunting. But have no fear! We are here to help decipher the different factors that you’ll need to consider when choosing a new system.

HVAC Sizing

The sizing of your HVAC system plays an important role in how well you will be able to maintain home comfort over time. An oversized system may constantly be turning on and off, making your energy bills go through the roof. While a system that’s too small may not be able to keep you comfortable. Poorly sized HVAC systems may also experience additional wear and tear as they have to work harder to keep your space comfortable. Work with an experienced HVAC contractor to find the right sizing for your home.

Features

You’ll also want to consider which features are important to you in a home comfort system. For example, some homeowners want to have greater control over their comfort, so they might opt for zoning or a smart thermostat. While others may be interested in including HVAC accessories as part of their home comfort set up such as humidifiers or air purifiers.

Brand

Different HVAC system brands denote different levels of quality. Similarly, different brands will offer different system types and features. At Brody Pennell, we recommend quality home comfort systems from Carrier – the industry’s leading manufacturer. As a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer, Brody Pennell ensures that all of our HVAC technicians are trained in installing and repairing these systems. Our home comfort specialists are also experienced in helping L.A. homeowners find the best systems to meet their home comfort needs.

Price

Though price shouldn’t be your only consideration when choosing a new HVAC system, we know that it does play a part in which system you choose. Price will vary based on the type of system and brand. The best way to find a system that fits within your budget is to work with an HVAC company that has a wide selection of quality systems. Remember, there is always HVAC financing available to ensure that you get the best home comfort system to meet your family’s needs.

Finding an Experienced HVAC Contractor

Finding the right heater or air conditioner for your home is only half the battle. You’ve also got to find an experienced HVAC contractor who has experience installing new HVAC systems. Proper sizing and installation is an important part of getting the most out of your new heating and cooling system. And choosing an experienced HVAC contractor is the best way to ensure proper installation.

Here are just a few things to look for when searching for the best L.A. HVAC contractor for new system installation:

Experience

How long has your HVAC contractor been in business? A long history of consistent quality customer service shows homeowners that the HVAC contractor knows their stuff. Don’t just look at how long they have been open but also what they have done over time to ensure that their HVAC contractors have the training they need to stay up-to-date with the latest in HVAC technology.

Ratings & Reviews

What better way to understand what it’s like to work with an HVAC contractor than to hear from their past customers? Look for ratings, reviews, and testimonials on the company’s website as well as on sites like Google and Yelp. This will give you an idea of what the company is like and how they treat their customers. You should also check their rating and review complaints on Better Business Bureau.

Awards & Recognitions

The awards and recognitions that an HVAC company has been given can also give you a better idea of the quality of their service. In addition, it can tell you other things about the company that you can’t find anywhere else – like how dependable, honest, and ethical they are. Take a look at what awards the company has one locally and nationally to get a better feel for their integrity as a company.

Licenses & Insurance

At the very least, your HVAC contractor needs to have the appropriate state licenses and insurance. When you work with an uninsured contractor, you run the risk of losing money or incurring property damage when the company makes a major error. Not to mention, these licenses also show a basic level of HVAC competency that’s needed for new system installations.
