1. Getting blinded by up-front costs
Now, we’re not saying that all lower-priced units are somehow tricking you into paying more long term – but it is important that you ask a few questions about long-term costs when considering a unit. Be especially attentive to:
Whether a unit supports generic parts
What installation and maintenance fees are associated with the unit
2. Not comparing different brands
3. Shopping for features, not for your needs
Our advise? Come up with a shortlist of your biggest needs from an air conditioner year-round. Take into account the environment where you live, the general temperature your thermostat is set to, how often you’re home (and how much that temperature fluctuates when you are), and your budget. If you come in already knowing what you need, it’ll be much harder to get sidetracked by things you might temporarily (and unnecessarily) want.
As is the case with all big purchases, there are a few common mistakes to avoid when shopping for an HVAC system. Luckily, with some preparation and research, you’ll be set up to find the ideal unit for your home or business. Shopping for a new HVAC system or in need of maintenance for your current one?
