This is all about what to look for in Atlanta HVAC equipment, and why you need to beware if you’re traipsing about online for a great deal.
The deals may be there. But they’re lurking there for a reason. What do you do if you find a great deal online? HVAC products that you see online are all too often broken, not functioning properly, or have a limited working lifespan.
The best you can do is to ensure that a working and professional HVAC repair and installation specialist give the equipment you’re considering a serious appraisal. Just because you don’t see anything wrong does not mean that is the case.
In fact, if you see a seller that offers HVAC equipment directly to consumers by eliminating the middle man, you have NO guarantee that you’re seeing a safe, working machine. There’s no way around a professional install that all at once meets the building code, manufacturer specs and performance expectations and requirements.
Before you buy Atlanta HVAC equipment, it’s important that your local HVAC contractor visit the space of installation and determine what you actually need.
What the Contractor is Going to Do
The system that you install is going to have to perform to the conditions of your home or business space. A machine too small is going to leave your environment too cold, or too hot depending on the season. A machine too large is going to overcompensate for the amount of coverage you actually need by cycling on and off too often. That sends your electricity bill higher than it needs to be, and over time taxes your machine to the breaking point much faster than if you had an adequately sized HVAC system.
In either case you’ll be wasting money. If the machine is underpowered, your money will be spent on a preventable upgrade or building reconditioning. If the machine is overpowered, your money will be spent on more machine than you need.
Get A Load Calculation Test
Both of these situations can be prevented by getting help with a professional at the outset to avoid the purchasing the wrong device. The professional will conduct a Load Calculation test of your home or business, which counts the number of windows, doors, their dimensions, exposure to sun, shade, your floor space and the R-values inherent in your building envelope, which includes the walls, floors and roof.
All of this information gives the HVAC pro enough information to make a precisely calculated number to define the system that you actually need. This efficient solution will be the perfect equation to bring you no more power spent than necessary to equal the right amount of heat and air conditioning.
