An HVAC system is a heating and cooling system that uses ventilation to provide consistent heating and cooling for the home. If your home doesn't have an HVAC system and you use alternative means for keeping your home comfortable - such as a window air conditioner or baseboard heat - you don't have the advantages an HVAC system provides.
If you're thinking of ways you can improve your home, starting with the way you heat and cool your house's square footage is a wise choice. Here are several reasons why investing in an HVAC system is an ideal choice for your home.
Installation Is Not Invasive
Installing an HVAC system in your home is not as invasive a home remodel as you'd think. If you already have ducts in your home for heating with a furnace, these ducts can be transformed into a modern heating and cooling system without putting your home through major reconstruction.
If your house doesn't already have any vents or ductwork in place, your HVAC specialist will put them in for you in areas where your home will be least affected. For instance, they can place ductwork in walls, ceilings, and in spaces of the home that are not obvious - such as the closet or behind a couch.
Installation Is Cost-Effective
Compared to other home improvement projects, adding an HVAC system to your home is cost-effective. If you already have ducts and vents in your home, the installation for an updated heating and cooling system can be as little as $3,000. However, the price for your home's HVAC installation is dependent upon your home's square footage, the type of unit you buy, and other factors.
If you need to have ducts added to your home, expect the costs for installation to at least double; some HVAC installations cost up to $30,000 or more. Get an estimate for your home's installation from your HVAC specialist.
Installation Improves Home Value
Using energy-efficient and modern heating and cooling systems in the home adds value to your property. When adding central air to your property, ask your HVAC specialist to install the most modern, energy-efficient unit on the market to give your home greater selling potential.
Some HVAC systems can be controlled by remote control or via smartphones and other devices, while others have the benefit of using less electricity to operate, therefore saving the homeowner money. If you are considering selling your home in the future or need a home improvement project you can benefit from now and as a future investment, consider an HVAC system.
Installation Improves Health
If anyone in your home suffers from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory issues, then an HVAC system is a health benefit in your home. Since the system filters air through the home and removes impurities from the air in the process, you can enjoy healthier air output whenever your heating or cooling system is on.
Another health benefit to an HVAC system is this: consistent temperature output. Since you can control the temperature throughout your home at the push of a button or via a controlled thermostat setting, you can keep your loved ones comfortable. This control is especially important if you have infants or elderly people in the home who need to avoid being too hot or cold.
