The following factors would need to be considered:
Make sure it’s an efficient and cost-effective investment for your family and home. Do you need it to heat in winter or cool in summer or both?
The less expensive systems will cost you more down the track due to running and increased maintenance costs, so work out what your budget is for running and installation costs, and how often you’ll be using your aircon/heating unit.
The higher the quality, the higher the efficiency, so they are less expensive to operate and over time, they will pay for themselves. Quality of air is very important when it comes to our health, comfort and well-being.
To have a professional come to install a system can be expensive, so only look at cooling areas that are worth cooling.
If you live in a climate with consistent temperature, this can tend to be a more efficient and cost-effective option.
Before you have a unit installed, try to find a shady area for the condenser, otherwise if it’s placed in overly lit areas, it can overheat, which in turn means you will have more damage, which will ultimately cost more money in the process, so make sure to put it in a location where its airflow can’t be blocked, which will in turn provide maximum efficiency when used.
Installing the unit can also add value to your home as well as giving you comfort indoors, therefore making it a wise investment in your home.
Keep in mind the size and design of your home. If it provides you with comfort, efficiency and longevity, these are great benefits to have with your system.
The units need to match the layout or contour of your home.
It’s important to know the area where the equipment needs to be installed.
Plan carefully, and consider how many people occupy the home, and make sure you don’t get a unit installed which is either too big or too small.
If the unit is too small it will fail to cool your house amply in very hot weather, even if the unit runs all the time. If the unit will be too big it will use a lot of electricity. This energy inefficiency will increase your energy bill significantly.
Re-check the connections when you are doing your installation, otherwise it may not fit well, and may cause leaks in the near future. Ensure you choose a reputable company.
It is important you are able to adjust the airflow, so knowing the right system of air quality control devices is important too.
