Congratulations! You’re building a brand new home in the heart of lovely Savannah, Georgia. Moving can be a stressful transition, but you know that at the end of the journey, you’ll have a beautiful place to make new memories. An important component of any new home is the HVAC system that provides your living space and your family with comfort and healthy air. The decisions you make now regarding your HVAC system will affect your home and budget for all the years ahead. These crucial HVAC services will ensure that you start your life in your new home with comfort and energy efficiency.
Load Calculation Services
You can’t simply throw any size HVAC system into a new home. If your heating and cooling system is too large for the size and design of your home, it wastes energy and burdens you with high utility costs for years to come. If your system is too small, it will be unable to maintain the comfort level you want, and the strain it experiences in an attempt to compensate will also increase utility costs.
Before installing any HVAC system, you need a professional HVAC technician to conduct a load calculation. Such a service takes into account the structural design of your home and anything that may affect energy consumption, such as doors, windows, insulation, and more. By conducting a load calculation, technicians can suggest what size HVAC system will be capable of providing reliable comfort in the harshest summer heat or the bitterest winter cold. Accurate load calculations also keep you from paying too much in utility costs.
HVAC System Suggestions
Many homeowners don’t know it, but there are many options besides the standard central heating and cooling system. Different HVAC systems provide different levels of power and efficiency, and HVAC technicians can help you find the system that best fits the design of your new home and your heating and cooling preferences.
Our technicians, for example, can help you choose between three main types of systems.
- Split system: If you had central heating and air, this is likely the type of system you’re used to. A split system consists of separate air conditioning and heating units that sit in a secluded part of the home connected to an outdoor condenser unit. Split systems are reasonably efficient and, with regular maintenance, they’re reliable at delivering comfort, no matter the season.
- Packaged system: These are often the heating and cooling systems you see on the tops of commercial buildings. Packaged units keep the air handler and condensing unit in one enclosure and are usually kept on the rooftop.
- Heat pump: These systems can function both as a heating and a cooling system, all in one. Thanks to a reversing valve, heat pumps can pump refrigerant in both directions, allowing the system to both absorb and release heat. Heat pumps are usually the most energy efficient of these three types of systems, but they work best in climates where temperatures don’t reach extremes.
