Heating, ventilating and air-conditioning systems (HVAC) are an integral part of modern-day homes.When building a new home, consider the layout before installing an HVAC system. A system with well planned ductwork and strategic system placement will ensure years of comfort throughout the seasons. Here are a few areas to include in planning:
Consider the Whole
Your HVAC system doesn’t only effect your family’s comfort, but also the efficiency. Evaluate where sunlight will shine in your home, whether the lot has trees or is bare, and the type of roofing that your home will have. These and other architectural elements play a part in deciding the best HVAC system for your home.
Size the System Correctly
Another important element is purchasing the right sized HVAC system for your home. An oversized system costs more and will be less efficient. On the other end of the spectrum, a system that doesn’t effectively carry the heating and cooling load of your home is also inefficient and will cost you more in heating and cooling bills.
Plan for Expansion or Upgrades
Leave extra room in your utility closet or room for the expansion of your HVAC system if you add to your home in the future or if you want to upgrade your unit.
