How to Choose a Heating & Cooling System for Your Dalton Home, Dalton, Georgia

It can be overwhelming to shop for a heating & cooling system for your Dalton home. There are so many options out there, and each product description is filled with jargon that may or may not be essential for your home. So, how do you figure out which one is right for your home? Dalton Heating & Air Conditioning has you covered.

Here, Dalton Heating & Air Conditioning has compiled a list of the three main things you need to know when choosing the perfect heating & cooling system:

Load Capacity

It’s important to have an accurate load calculation so that you do not end up with a system that is too small or too large. If it is too small, you won’t be able to adequately heat and cool the house, and your system may even overheat or break down quickly. On the other hand, a system that is too large will not only be unnecessarily expensive, it will also “short cycle" which will cause excessive humidity as well as hot and cold spots.

SEER Rating

heating & coolingEnergy efficiency is very important when investing in a heating & cooling system. Choosing a cheaper, inefficient system won’t save you money in the long run. You will actually end up spending more money due to higher energy costs. Air conditioning units measure energy efficiency based on SEER ratings, which stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. The higher the SEER rating, the more energy efficient the air conditioning unit is.  On the other hand, buying the most expensive/energy efficient system that is made may never really bring a return on your investment.

Quality Installation

Does the heating & cooling system you’re considering come with high-quality, reliable installation? HVAC systems are complex, intricate machines that require technical knowledge to install properly. If installed incorrectly, at best you will have a high energy bill, but at worst you will have a broken system that needs to be replaced. Make sure that the heating and air conditioning contractors you choose are skilled, licensed, and certified with the North American Technician Excellence (NATE) organization.

When in doubt, ask your local air conditioning contractors which HVAC system is right for your home. Dalton Heating & Air Conditioning’s HVAC experts are more than willing to speak with you about your home’s unique needs. Give them a call at (706) 272-3968 or visit their website to learn more.
