So you’ve decided that it’s time to think about replacing the HVAC system in your home. Maybe you’ve started to notice recently that it just doesn’t seem to work as well as it used to. Or maybe you’ve added to your home, and the old system just isn’t up to the task anymore. Or maybe it finally died, and you’re left with no choice. Regardless of the reason, if you’re looking to replace your HVAC system, the choices can be a bit overwhelming. There are many different brands out there that run from relatively affordable to out of range for all but the largest household budgets.
If you’ve started to look, but can’t figure out which brands you should focus on, we’ve put together a quick and handy guide to some of the best systems out there. The information in this list was compiled from highly trusted groups, and while it won’t mention price, it will talk about both some of the more expensive brands available, as well as some very economic options.
1) Goodman Heating and Air
Goodman units offer serious bang for your buck. They are considered very reliable, work well and efficiently, and come with an excellent warranty -- all of this in a very affordable package. Because of this, Goodman is considered one of the value leaders in the industry. If your budget is a concern, this is definitely a brand you want to check out.
Carrier is one of the most recognizable names in the industry, and with good reason. The Carrier name carries with it a sterling reputation for high-quality HVAC systems, and if you purchase one, you’ll definitely be happy with your choice. That reputation allows Carrier to charge a little bit more for their units than some of the competitors, but if you believe you get what you pay for, you won’t mind that a bit.
Another well-known brand that has earned its reputation over the years is Trane. Trane is more well-known for making commercial HVAC systems, but the knowledge to make those tough and demanding systems carries over well, producing reliable systems for residential homes as well.
Bryant is known for making solid, well-built, reliable systems. Some of their models might lack the bells and whistles of the high-end units out there, but the reliability and efficiency make them a good option to consider when looking for a new unit.
There are so many more brands we could discuss, but these four seem to be standing out in 2017 as the brands to consider. If you would like to know more, or would like to talk to someone about your own HVAC needs, please contact us today!
