Whether you’re dealing with a new home and a first-time central air system, or your facing a home HVAC replacement, you want to be sure you get the best option for your personal needs. Maybe you need something with high energy efficiency, great climate control or affordability? Are you looking for something to last a few years or decades?
For Valencia West residents, there are a few things to consider:
1. You live in an extreme climate with high temperatures in the spring and summer months. If you’re planning to be in your home for five or more years, you should probably consider a high-efficiency model. Yes, this will cost you more up-front, but in the long run you will save money on your utility bills – paying for itself in about five years. Because your AC unit will need to run longer and work a bit harder, it’s important that it’s built to last.
2. If you’re moving soon you don’t really need to buy the top model. Finding a quality model that offers mid-range efficiency can save you money and meet your needs for the short term. It’s one of those expenses that adds comfort but not much in the way of increased home value. Shop smart!
3. If you want to reduce your carbon footprint than you’ll want to look at the range of high efficiency models and that may take precedence for you over cost and use needs.
4. If lowering your utility bill matters most then you may consider a single stage until, basic HVAC system. Be sure it has a 15-17 SEER rating and a furnace with an efficiency rating in the low 90-percent range.
