Questions First Time HVAC Buyers Should Ask

Buying a new HVAC system can be an effective way to reduce utility bills while making your home more comfortable to live in. However, it is important that you know what you’re purchasing before spending thousands of dollars on heating and cooling components.

How Long Will a Component Last?

Generally speaking, you can expect a compressor unit to last for about a decade; you can expect a furnace to last for up to 30 years. The folks at Oconee Climate Control in Eatonton can install a new furnace or central air system in your home. We can also repair heating and cooling components to improve the odds that they last for their entire useful lives.

Is There a Warranty Available?

In many cases, you will receive a warranty or some other guarantee when you purchase a furnace or any other HVAC component. This warranty may come directly from the manufacturer or the company that installs it for you. In some cases, you may get a warranty from both the manufacturer and the service provider that installs it in your home. It may also be a good idea to ask if the warranty is transferable in the event that you want or need to sell your home in the next few years.

Will I Need to Remodel My Home?

There is a chance that you will need to add ducts or move existing ductwork to install a furnace or an air conditioner in your home. However, it may be possible to have a ductless unit put in a bedroom or a garage if it doesn’t have ducts. This type of product could also be used in lieu of moving existing ducts to a new location.
