When it’s time to replace your HVAC system it’s very important to have a proper evaluation for your new system. This assessment needs to be done in your home to get the precise measurements; you should never get a price of a new system over the phone. This article will explain the in-home evaluation expectations when O’Brien Service Company arrives.
What Measurements and Evaluations are Needed?
First, we’ll perform a load calculation to determine the size of the system needed. An improper sized system will increase wear on your system, cause discomfort, and could make your energy bills rise. Some people assume only square footage affects the size of the system. However, there are many other factors such as the ones listed below.
- Which direction your home is facing
- Ceiling heights
- How many windows
- Building material
- How many people occupy the space
After the Load Calculation
Following the load calculation, we’ll look and assess your current duct work. You can get a top of the line system, but when paired with old, inefficient duct work you’ll never see those benefits. Finally, they’ll propose several different options based on efficiency, and the brands we install. The pricing between all the options will vary.
Is Financing Offered?
Yes. Different systems will qualify for different financing offers. During your in-home evaluation your comfort specialist will discuss this with you. As well as help you apply if needed. O’Brien does offer financing promotions year-round.
How to Schedule an In-Home Evaluation
There are a few different ways to schedule an evaluation. You can contact the office by phone. Or, you can fill out an estimate request on our website to be contacted. These are free consultations and can take anywhere from one to two hours per system. You’ll depend on this new HVAC system for many years, so be sure you’re making the right choices!
