quality airWhen considering your option for HVAC in Jacksonville, whether it is a new installation or maintenance of an existing system, one factor to keep in mind is to consider how much it is going to cost to keep you breathing comfortably.

When it comes to air quality, you will want to consider the follow factors.

Cost of Initial Installation

Installation is going to be the largest initial outlay of money for the homeowner, which is why it is important for you to do your homework. Purchase the most efficient unit you can afford, which will save you costs in running and maintaining the unit down throughout its lifetime. Make sure that your Jacksonville HVAC contractor carries various lines of equipment in order to give you a choice of brands. You should look to see if they are factory certified in both installation and service. This will assure you that your Jacksonville HVAC contractor will install your unit properly and will be able to give you the best service, ensuring that you get the optimum service life from the unit that you purchase.

Proper and Professional Installation

Your HVAC Jacksonville contractor will ideally be factory trained and certified in the installation of the unit that you purchase. This is important because one of the biggest causes of HVAC system failure is due to improper installation. Also, a true professional will be in and out of your living space with minimal disruption to your daily routine. They will either have all the parts on hand for proper installation, or they will have easy access to the parts.

Ongoing Maintenance

Another cost in running your HVAC system is ongoing maintenance of the system. Your reputable Jacksonville HVAC contractor can help you with this. A properly maintained system will have a long and efficient service life. Your contractor can show you how to change the air filters and also any other maintenance a homeowner might be able to do. If you are not comfortable with doing the maintenance yourself, your contractor most likely offers service contracts for a nominal fee. With a service contract, your HVAC Jacksonville contractor can change your filters as recommended by the manufacturer of the unit, as well as give the unit a cleaning and an adjustment of any part, or even replacement, as needed.

Incidentals

There are important incidentals that your professional HVAC contractor is trained to notice and help you take corrective action in order to keep your HVAC system run at peak efficiency, helping you save money over the service life of your HVAC unit. A good starting point is the “brains” of your HVAC unit, the thermostat. Your Jacksonville HVAC contractor can suggest and install for you a programmable unit. They can teach you how to use your programmable thermostat to run your unit at peak efficiency, saving you up to hundreds of dollars each year in energy costs.

Another way your contractor can help you with efficiency is by checking out the integrity of your window systems. A good contractor can suggest upgrades and maintenance of your window that will help keep energy waste to a minimum.
