There’s a lot of fun involved in owning your home, but let’s face it, homeownership is full of “ouch” moments, too. And one of the ouchiest is learning you need to replace your Philadelphia heating or air conditioning system.
The HVAC experts at Joseph Giannone Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning can direct you to rebates and financing that will make the hit easier to take, but replacing your Philly HVAC is still going to be an expense.
Trust us, though, when you’re spending money on your home’s systems is not a time to cut corners. That’s because a cut-rate or unlicensed installation could leave you with an HVAC system that doesn’t meet your home’s needs. Correct sizing of an HVAC system takes education and expertise, and it’s a pitfall too few people know about. When you’re buying a new system, make sure you’re partnering with a licensed HVAC professional. If you don’t, you’re putting your home’s comfort and your bank account at risk. Here’s why.
Bigger Isn’t Better
It seems like common sense that the bigger the HVAC system the better it will do its job, right?
On oversized HVAC system’s problem is that it will heat or cool certain areas too quickly, hitting the thermostat setting in some areas before the conditioned air can move through the whole space. This will leave you with hot or cold spots and a clammy feeling in your home. Even worse, your system will cycle on and off more frequently, leading to higher energy bills and more wear and tear on the equipment.
Small Doesn’t Fit All
We rarely see a unit that is undersized, but sometimes a homeowner can mistakenly install an undersized unit for a home that has improperly installed or designed ductwork, or a system that is not running at full capacity due to lack of maintenance or need of repair. It just won’t have what it takes to maintain the proper temperature. If this happens, your system will run all the time but never hit the right temperature for comfort.
