Building a Home? Here’s How to Pick the Right HVAC

There are so many choices when it comes to residential heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. To make sure you select the right system for your new home, it’s best to turn to an HVAC company for expert guidance. The HVAC technician will ensure you choose the right size and type of air conditioner, heat pump, or furnace to make your new home as comfortable and energy-efficient as possible.


Homeowners have more choices available to them than ever before. You could choose a heat pump, for example, which both heats and cools the home. You might prefer a central AC unit with ductwork. Or, you might be more interested in investing in a ductless mini split system, which allows for zoning control and doesn’t require the installation of ductwork.

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is a top priority for many homeowners, especially in sunny Arizona where air conditioners get plenty of usage. Your HVAC technician will consider the size of your home, the insulation used, and the climate of the area to make recommendations regarding the most energy-efficient HVAC system for your home. Feel free to ask any questions you may have about energy efficiency ratings and labels.


Your family’s comfort is important, and your HVAC contractor can help you maintain it. Discuss your options for customizable zoning. For instance, you may want to be able to adjust the temperature within individual rooms, rather than on a floor-by-floor basis. This is particularly helpful for families with young children and for future parents who plan to grow their families. Consider noise as well as temperature. If you’re particularly sensitive to the typical noises that an average HVAC system makes, talk to the technician about quieter options.
