When building a new home, the central heating and cooling system is often the most expensive portion; however, it is often times the portion of a new home project that is given very little consideration to the available features and benefits. When building a new home, it is important to insist that you are a part of the decision-making process regarding your new heating and cooling system.
A common story to here from individuals who are building their homes is that chose custom lighting, custom flooring, and special appliances for their new home. However, they never met with their heating and cooling contractor and were not involved in the design of their new HVAC system. In some cases, they were never even offered choices regarding their home comfort; instead, the heating and cooling systems were chosen by the home builder. When this happens, the decisions are made based on price alone with no consideration to the efficiency of the products, or the individual needs of the new homeowners.
There are a large number of decisions to be made when first designing a system, and each one brings decisions about specific features, benefits, and varying costs. Home comfort is more than just a temperature setting, and true home comfort begins in the design of your HVAC and ductwork system.
Building a new home is your opportunity to learn about factors such as multiple zone temperature control, winter humidification, indoor air quality, fresh air ventilation, intelligent thermostats, high efficiency multi-stage equipment, custom floor diffusers, geothermal, multi-speed air conditioners, as well as many other options.
