The Right Time to Replace Your HVAC System
If your system is getting old and seems like it may be reaching the end of its useful life, it’s probably time for a new one. Under these circumstances, you have time to gather information and make a relaxed, informed decision without any pressure.
The other time for replacement is in a dire emergency when you’re forced to face extreme heat or cold. In those instances, you often need to make quick decisions in order to get your home comfortable again.
Systems get more efficient every year which means a lower energy bill and if you want to avoid a dire emergency of needing a new system, being proactive about replacement is extremely beneficial.

How to Choose an HVAC System
When choosing an HVAC system for your home, you need to determine:
- System Type
There are many brands on the market today and our advice is to stick with a company that focuses on HVAC equipment. These include Bryant, Carrier, Lennox, Trane, and York among others. We’ve chosen to align ourselves with Bryant and we have the strength of a strong, long-standing relationship with the company. Frederick Air was named Bryant’s National Dealer of the Year in 2014.
Below are the components that your contractor will use to identify the right size for your home:
- Total Square Footage
- Exterior Exposure
- Duct System Design
- Other Factors
It’s important that your contractor gets the sizing correct the first time around. An oversized system will cause unnecessary high utility bills, uneven temperatures, and poor humidity control. An undersized system will run constantly and still not be able to keep you comfortable.

How to Select a Contractor
There are a lot of options for HVAC service and installation. We always recommend building a long-term relationship with a provider so that you have someone who understands your system and your needs.
Here are a few questions to ask when searching for the right provider:
- Do they have a legitimate place of business to operate the company?
- Are their technicians certified by an independent testing agency such as NATE (North American Technician Excellence)?
- Are they a member of a national trade association?
- Do they wear company uniforms, display IDs, and use company-branded vehicles?
A Quality Service Provider Will:
- Offer True 24-Hour Emergency Service
- Have a Written Satisfaction Guarantee
- Be Properly Licensed by the State
- Comply with State Laws such as the Door-to-Door Sales Act
If you want to get the best value for your money and end up with a new comfort system you’ll be proud to own and enjoy for years to come, take the time to choose a high-quality HVAC provider.
