What is an HVAC system? 

An HVAC system is any type of unit that provides heating, ventilation, or air conditioning to your home. These innovative and essential systems allow homeowners to create a comfortable living environment for their families by controlling the temperature of their space using a thermostat. This device displays the current temperature in your home, but it also helps automatically regulate this temperature depending on presets you have programmed. That way, your HVAC system will turn on and off by itself throughout the day without you having to worry about manually controlling your temperature. 

On the other hand, your HVAC unit is also responsible for circulating the air in your home to improve your indoor air quality. This system ultimately ensures that you and your family are not breathing in air containing dust, dirt, pet hair, and other debris that can harm your health over time. 

As you can see, an HVAC unit is pretty straightforward in theory. However, these systems are actually highly complex. They feature several different parts and mechanisms that work together to help you enjoy your home throughout the years.

Some of these parts include:

  • A heat exchanger
  • A blower motor
  • Combustion chamber 
  • Condenser coils or compressors 
  • Evaporator coils 
  • Refrigerant 
  • Thermostats 
  • Ductwork 

Furthermore, your HVAC system can also be classified as a ductless system, split system, or hybrid system.

Regardless, the different types of HVAC units include:

  • Heat pumps: Heat pumps are a standard HVAC unit that uses a thermal heat transfer to heat and cools your home throughout the year. It draws in warm or cooled air from the exterior of your home before its compressor changes its temperature depending on whether you want to increase or decrease the indoor temperature of your home. 
  • Furnaces: Furnaces warm and distribute the heated air through your air duct system. It will either use natural gas, propane, or electricity to generate heat before it is transferred through a heat exchanger and delivered to each room. 
  • Boilers: A boiler employs various types of energy, whether oil, gas, or electricity, to create heat. The heat is used to boil water held within a tank, which then transforms the water into steam. This steam is then pushed through your home’s ductwork to heat each room. 
  • Water heaters: Provides hot water to your home through water pipes to ensure you never run out of warm water. It can also be used to heat your floors by pumping water installed under your flooring to enhance your indoor environment. 
  • Humidifiers: Humidifiers produce a cool mist throughout your home to ensure enough moisture in your air. This prevents your air from becoming overly dry, resulting in sore throats, itchy skin, and dry eyes.   
  • UV air purifiers: UV air purification removes airborne bacteria, viruses, and other pollutants using a high-powered UV light to help prevent you and your family from getting sick when breathing in the air in your home.
  • Air conditioning: Keeps your family cool by pushing chilled air throughout your home during the summer months. There are different types of A/C units that use other cooling methods to chill your home.

What should I look for in a HVAC system?

If you have already begun looking for a new HVAC unit to install in your home, you may have come to realize that there are several different types, sizes, and brands available. Therefore, if you don’t know what you’re looking for, it can become quite overwhelming and challenging to choose an HVAC unit in Lowville that is going to provide you with maximum benefits while optimizing your energy efficiency. Many factors that influence the type of HVAC system you need are related to the features of your home.

Regardless, here are some of the features you should consider that will be directly influenced by your needs as a homeowner when choosing an HVAC system:

  • The average lifespan of a unit compared to others available for you to purchase. 
  • What your budget is for a new HVAC unit. 
  • The type and size of the HVAC unit that is currently installed in your home. 
  • How much noise the HVAC unit makes as it is turned on. 
  • The unit’s Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) which will influence how energy efficient your home is. 
  • The kind of maintenance is required for your HVAC system to function optimally. 
  • The number of British Thermal Units (BTUs) the HVAC system uses.

For more guidance on choosing the correct HVAC unit for your home, the team at Boonstra Heating and Air Conditioning is ready to work with you to find the perfect unit for your home.

How do I know when my HVAC needs maintenance?

Not many homeowners know that their HVAC system requires yearly maintenance to ensure it functions properly throughout the year, save your money on your energy bill, and prevent you from having to pay unexpected repair costs that would have otherwise been preventable.

Therefore, if you are unsure whether there is something wrong with your HVAC system, keep an eye out for these signs around your home that may indicate that something is wrong:

  • You hear odd noises, including rattling, hissing, and clicking coming from your HVAC system or throughout your ductwork. 
  • Significant increases in your monthly energy bill 
  • There is low air pressure coming from your vents, leading to patches of heated and cooled air in each room. 
  • You are having trouble regulating a consistent temperature in your home. 
  • Your thermostat is inaccurate.
  • There is water leaking and pooling out of your HVAC system when it is turned on. 
  • You cannot turn your HVAC system on.
  • You and your family members are experiencing unexplained allergies and cold-like systems that can make living in your home uncomfortable. 
  • There is an odd smell coming from your HVAC system as it functions, such as a burning smell of mold and mildew.
  • Your home is exceptionally dusty regardless of how often you clean it.

How much does HVAC installation cost in Lowville?

With over 60 years of industry experience, the team at Boonstra Heating and Air Conditioning has worked with thousands of homeowners in Lowville over the years. Therefore, we understand that each homeowner is different, including their home. As a result, when it comes to installing an HVAC unit into your home, there is not a one-size-fits-all solution. 

Accordingly, to determine the right HVAC system for your home in Lowville, homeowners will need to book an appointment with a professional HVAC technician to come and survey their home. This will allow them to inspect your home and provide professional suggestions as to which type of HVAC unit will work optimally in your home while maximizing your energy efficiency. 

Therefore, although we are unable to provide you with an estimated installation cost before visiting your property, we can provide you with a list of factors that will ultimately contribute to the final cost of your installation and what you can expect to consider when making your final decision:

  • The SEER rating, also known as the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, needed to optimally regulate the temperature of your home throughout the year while remaining as energy-efficient as possible. 
  • The style and kind of ductwork that you have currently installed in your home. 
  • The type of HVAC system you want to install, related to the HVAC system you presently have installed in your home. 

Furthermore, the total square footage of your home, its age, the overall quality of your home’s insulation, the layout of your home, and the height of your ceilings are also essential factors determining your final installation cost. In contrast, these factors will also help you establish the size of your unit. It will also help determine how many British Thermal Units (BTUs) are needed to cool and heat your home while still using as little energy as possible. 

This is an essential feature as installing an HVAC unit into your home that is too small for its square footage will contribute to you using more energy than you should be, ultimately costing you more money each month. The same can be said for an HVAC unit too big for your home. 

Therefore, with the professional help of the expert HVAC team at Boonstra Heating and Air Conditioning, we’ll help you navigate these different factors before providing you with a free installation estimate. That way, you can have a stress-free experience from start to finish.
