Selecting a new HVAC system for your home is a big decision you’ll have to live with for at least 10 years and probably longer. At Honey’s Air & Solar, we prefer a step-by-step approach to determine what the right equipment is for a particular customer’s home.

Inspect Your Ductwork

Start by having your existing ductwork inspected. It’s often preferable to use your existing air ducts in order to keep costs low. However, if any maintenance or repairs are required, then this is a good time to complete them. It’s also important to know if your ducts are appropriate to the equipment you’re considering.

Choose Your Air Conditioner

For our customers in Modesto and the surrounding areas, Honey’s Air & Solar often recommends opting for a highly efficient air conditioner. When it comes to SEER, we recommend the higher the better in terms of keeping your long-term costs low.

Choose Your Furnace

If the furnace you’re replacing is old, you’ll be pleased to know that modern furnaces have come a long way with regard to energy-efficient operation. Furnaces are generally defined by their air handlers, and you have three basic choices: single-state, two-stage, and variable-speed.

Consider a Heat Pump

You may also want to consider a heat pump, which provides an all-in-one heating and cooling system. Heat pumps aren’t as efficient during the peak of winter as furnaces, but in a Mediterranean-like climate, they can be a more cost-effective option overall.

Explore Any Available Incentives

Be sure to investigate any federal, state or local credits, rebates, and incentives that may be available to you. These can make a big difference concerning your total cost of ownership.

Pick the Right HVAC Company

Whether you’re in the early research stages or have made your choices, it helps to have a reputable and dependable company by your side. At Honey’s Air & Solar, we take customer satisfaction seriously and offer the no stinger promise. We also offer a full range of services related to cooling, heating, solar and windows.
