Questions to Ask for First-Time HVAC Purchases

Questions to Ask for First-Time HVAC Purchases

Understand that buying an air conditioner for the first time is not a small purchase. A full HVAC system is an investment that could easily set you back thousands of dollars. With such high stakes, you definitely don’t want to make any mistakes. You don’t want to buy an AC unit and then have to call air conditioning repair services a few weeks later. That’s why doing due diligence is important.

With a seemingly endless list of available options, where and how do you even start? At Canoga Park Heating and Air Conditioning, our years of experience allow us to answer all your questions about air conditioning, especially if you’re a first-time buyer. We’ve compiled a list of the best questions to ask your dealer before you invest in a brand new air conditioning system.

What Questions Should I Ask?

Believe it or not, this is a valid question to ask your air conditioning repair and service provider. Often, discussions about HVAC purchases start with sizes. The size of an air conditioning system is measured in tons. This tonnage refers to cooling capacity and not the physical weight of the unit itself. Here at Canoga Park, we determine size requirements based on your home’s floor area.

Once the size is established, the discussion often goes naturally to other features, which takes us to question number 2.

What Features Does My Home Need?

For most air conditioning repair, service, and installation experts, there are basic and standard features to all AC units. That’s why as far as features are concerned, questions arise about the addons. The features you need will depend on what you want your system to accomplish. Ask your provider about the different types and their accompanying pros and cons, as well as any extra features such as programmable thermostats. This can give you a good idea about addressing your home’s air conditioning needs.

When Can It Be Installed?

When all is said and done, questions about scheduling an installation and who is doing the installation is often the last one to ask. The schedule mostly depends on your own schedule and the availability of your service provider.
