What is the right HVAC system for my needs?
System Selection: For most individuals, selecting an HVAC is not something you can do with much confidence. That’s why it’s wise to get some advice from an expert, like a Daikin Comfort Pro.
There are so many options and factors to consider:
- Size and age of your home
- Number of rooms in your home
- Local climate considerations
- Local and regional utility costs
- Utility incentive and rebate programs
- Upfront cost difference and long-term financial benefits of upgrading to a higher-rated system
- Type of HVAC system that best addresses these factors for you in aggregate
- Warranties available
A Daikin Comfort Pro is specially trained to carefully consider all of these factors, as well as your personal preferences, when recommending an HVAC system. Allow one to help you determine initial cost, warranty protection, service options, maintenance options and operating cost, as well as providing proper installation.
What size and capacity do I need for my HVAC system?
This is also an area where the expertise of a Daikin Comfort Pro is invaluable. You don’t want to invest in an HVAC system that’s too small to do the job. Nor do you want an oversized system that will cycle on and off frequently and never reach peak operating performance—not to mention cause unnecessary wear and tear on system components.
Daikin Comfort Pros assess realities such as your regional climate, relative humidity levels in your area, the number of windows in your dwelling, total square footage of your home, the direction your home faces, the number of heat-producing appliances in your home, your home’s insulation type, even the number of people that live in your residence. With all of these factors determined, your local Daikin Comfort Pro will help you make an informed decision that matches your exact needs and that will pay dividends in the long run.
Can I get a tax rebate or a utility rebate to pay for a new HVAC system?
The federal tax incentives for HVAC expired at the end of 2013. That said, there are many local, utility, state and other incentive programs to help fund the purchase of a high-efficiency system. A leading resource to check on these incentives (Database for State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency) is hosted by North Carolina State University, with the support of the U.S. Department of Energy and can be found at http://dsireusa.org/. The website covers high-efficiency HVAC grant, subsidy, loan and other support programs.
