Within the world of major HVAC components, there are a number of well-known brands out there. From Honeywell and Lennox to Rheem and Carrier plus several others, you have a multitude of brand options when it comes to your next furnace, air conditioner, water heater or other HVAC materials.
At Roberts Mechanical, we’re here to help with all air conditioning and furnace repair services, plus numerous other HVAC contractor areas. We also offer high-quality replacement services for each of your major components, generally providing you with several brand options when you’re in need of an upgrade. Let’s go over several factors that will help you differentiate between brands and make the right choice for your home.
Utilize HVAC Pro Expertise
For starters, even if you’re a handy and experienced homeowner, we highly advise against buying major HVAC equipment on your own and without the assistance of licensed HVAC pros. There are a couple reasons for this, but the most important directly affects your bottom line: Many reputable HVAC companies won’t install new equipment unless it’s purchased through them.
In addition, HVAC professionals simply have an eye for factors that you won’t. They’ll prevent you from safety hazard risks that take place due to improperly-sized materials, plus the utility bill increases that often come from this same area. Most HVAC quotes will include several brand options at different pricing ranges.
Within the HVAC world, there’s no single brand that’s considered superior to the others. Rather, there are several established brands to choose from – and in this case, experience and reputation are important, as these areas often dictate the quality of warranties and materials. Specifically, HVAC components are meant to last decades; if you choose a lesser brand from a manufacturer that might not even be around in 10 years, what are you going to do if it comes time to claim a warranty?
Brands and Reputation
Within the major brands, however, there are often differentiating factors that will lead you to your final choice. Our pros will tell you which areas certain brands are known for strengths or weaknesses in, and you can match these with your needs and desires in the home.
Warranties and Other Perks
Finally, a major differentiator for many homeowners when choosing between brands is the various perks they offer. One major area here is the warranty, which you should go over in detail and ensure you understand fully for each brand. Other perks may include financing offers, money-back incentives or similar tactics aimed at improving your purchasing experience while increasing the value you receive.
