If you’re building a new home, you’ve undoubtedly put countless hours into planning and researching every aspect of your house. However, despite your best efforts, you may have put a low priority on the design for the HVAC system in your Chesapeake, Virginia, home. Fortunately, it’s not too late to make the necessary changes. When you’re thinking about how to build the HVAC system for your new home, follow this handy guide.
Choosing the Right Sized Unit
When you’re choosing the size for your HVAC system, remember that bigger isn’t always better. When you get a unit that’s too large for your home, the air conditioner constantly cycles on and off causing more wear and tear over the life of the system. If you buy one that’s too small, it continues to run as it can’t handle the workload. Either way, you end up paying higher energy bills and more on repairs. If you aren’t sure what size you need, we can calculate the load necessary to adequately heat and cool your home.
In some areas of your home, running ductwork isn’t always the easiest option. Sometimes it’s better to opt for ductless mini-splits. With these systems, you don’t need ductwork that runs from the central heating and air to the room. Instead, you only need to find a place to put the unit. However, these mini-splits are relatively small, and many are easily customized to fit the decor of your home with little problem.
Picking the Right Contractor for Your Job
Building a home isn’t cheap, and choosing where to cut costs is a difficult task. One place you shouldn’t cut costs is with your contractors. Fortunately, we have years in the business, experience in new construction, and a staff that’s some of the best in the industry.
