The HVAC system in any home is an integral part of the building that has a truly impactful effect on the people who are living there. But, despite being such a crucial piece of a home, it’s a system that’s largely invisible unless you’re looking for it. In older homes—those with radiators and large heating and cooling components—it’s simple enough to pinpoint the extent of an HVAC system, however in new homes, a high functioning system largely depends on the quality of new construction installations in Tuscaloosa.
A system that’s built to last
When you’re buying a new home, you expect the different working systems of that home to last for different periods of time. The insulation will last a certain amount of years before it needs to be replaced, the roof will hold up for a certain length of time and the HVAC system will function at a high capacity for a variable number of years. Regardless of the lifespan of each system, however, you expect that when you’re moving into a new house, these systems aren’t in any immediate need of being replaced.
The true quality of new construction installations in Tuscaloosa is evident in their lifespan. A prime HVAC system, for example, should last you about a decade, save for a few parts and pieces that need to be replaced in between. If your home is five years old, you should expect to get another five years or more out of the HVAC system and if it is able to adequately produce for the next five years, you can chalk up the system’s performance to a good initial installation, as well as good maintenance.
Proper location during installation
Another great thing to observe about new construction installations in Tuscaloosa in regards to an HVAC system is the placement and accessibility of the system. Are your vents located in areas that provide hot and cold air to the entire room, or are they confined to a cramped area? Can a service professional access your heating unit easily or is it a trial to get to the system for repairs and maintenance? Observe these things when looking at a new home, to see the level of integrity that’s associated with the work.
If you’re looking into a new home that has high ceilings, wide open rooms and narrow hallways, it’s important to check to see that the HVAC system is going to adequately fill these spaces with temperature controlled air—if it’s not, it could be a flaw in the initial installation that costs you money in the long run.
Trust the pros
If you’re truly curious about the brand new installation of your HVAC system, it’s always a good idea to talk to a professional about the work—whether it’s a trusted name for service and repairs, like Adams Heating & Cooling, or even the company that did the installation itself. What you learn about the HVAC system in a new home can help you to plan out your future years living there.
