Thinking about switching your HVAC system to geothermal? Before you go any further, listen to what the experts are suggesting:
1. Do Your Research Ahead of Time: Before purchasing a geothermal HVAC system, do your research. Learn as much as possible about the ins and the outs of geothermal before you start shopping around. Make a list of questions and any concerns you may have before you start talking to the experts. Know the basics of what you are looking for and what you want from your system.
2. Don’t Base Your Decision Solely on Price: Many consumers make the mistake of basing their decision on price alone. In most cases, these consumers end up disappointed, not only in the product, but in the entire process. Take the time to find the right system that will best meet your family’s needs.
3. Purchase the Right Size for Your Needs: Many homeowners make the common mistake of purchasing a unit that isn’t big enough to meet their energy needs. This can end up costing them even more money in the long run with higher utility bills. If the system is too small, it is forced to run longer to meet your needs, and that could result in overworking the unit. On the other hand, if the system is too large, it will “short-cycle”, meaning it will turn on and off more frequently. This can cause poor humidity in the home as well as stress on the system.
