6 Questions to Ask When Purchasing Your First HVAC System
Updated: Jan 30, 2020
Obtaining your first HVAC system isn’t always a direct process. However, it can be a little easier with help from Beam HVAC! Here are six questions you should ask when purchasing your first HVAC system to ensure you’re buying the right brand and unit for your home.
#1: Which System Would be the Most Suitable My Home?
Although most people know they need to purchase an HVAC system for their home, not a lot of individuals know what size system they need for their house. Fortunately, with a larger system, you can ensure there is plenty of airflow in your house, but if the unit is too large, you could end up suffering from high humidity. If your system is too small for your home, you’ll need to use more energy to heat or cool your home, which could end up costing you more money than you want to spend. To best determine which HVAC system to buy for your home, you should ask Beam HVAC.
#2: Can Beam HVAC Work With My Schedule When Installing the System?

#3: Which Thermostat is the Most Validated?
You should consider installing a programmable, or smart thermostat in your home, over a standard one. However, you should care about the type of thermostat you get, since some will work better with your HVAC system than others.
#4: What Types of Filters Work Best with My Unit?
Fortunately, there is a wide variety of filters that you can use for your unit, especially since you’ll likely have to change your filter every few months or so. However, not every filter can fit into any unit. Before purchasing an HVAC unit, make sure your preferred filter works with it, or else you’ll have to look for a new filter type.
#5: Do You Have an HVAC Maintenance Program?
At Beam HVAC, we offer a Precision Tune-up which includes two home visits per year for preventative maintenance.
#6: Will All My Units Work Well with Each Other?
Fortunately, there are quite a few HVAC system configurations that you can take advantage of in your home. When buying different units for your home, one of the biggest questions you should ask is if they’ll work well together. Usually, in many cases, they will, but you want to be on the lookout for units that are more compatible with each other.
There are many questions you should ask when purchasing your first HVAC system, from which system size is best for your house to how long the HVAC installation will take. Hopefully, by reading the six sample questions above, you can get a better idea of what to ask Beam HVAC when getting your first HVAC system installed.
