Choosing the Right HVAC for Your Tucson Home

With a whole range of Home HVAC systems available in the market today that come with a wide array of features and designs, a prospective buyer could face the daunting task of choosing which could be the best HVAC system for his particular home. A good starting point would be determining the features suited for any type of home conditions. Here are 6 essential factors on choosing a home HVAC system:

Temperature Control

There are a number of zoning options to choose from but for most cases it is highly advisable to keep the blower constantly on. There should be provisions for programmable thermostats especially for multiple systems which consist of more than one HVAC system and multiple ducts and thermostats located all over the house in zone-damper systems.


This could prove to be a vital feature for any good home HVAC system as it offers the following benefits:

  • It lessens static electricity
  • It makes adjustments to outside temperature through proper humidification control
  • It promotes a healthier environment that ultimately reduces health problems such as dry skin, nose bleeds, and sore throats.
  • It helps preserve wood and furniture finishes.
  • Cost efficient – because the body feels warmer, the system can be set lower than usual.

Indoor Air Quality

You should choose an HVAC system that has features which ensure clean, fresh indoor air. Features such as the following should be considered:

  • Electro-static Air Cleaners
  • Ultra-Violet Treatment
  • Electronic Cleaners
  • Periodic Duct Cleaning
  • Media Air Cleaners
  • HRV (Heat Recovery Ventilation)
  • ERV (Energy Recovery Ventilation)


Maximum energy efficiency should be one of your top priorities when choosing an HVAC system. Some features that make an HVAC system a highly energy efficient one includes:

  • Programmable Thermostat
  • Energy Efficient Equipment
  • Two-Speed System
  • Variable –Speed System
  • Multi-stage System
  • Proper Duct Sealing
  • Ductwork System which is properly designed and installed

  • Acoustic Lining
  • Vibration Isolation
  • Insulated Compartments
  • Equipment with variable speed
  • Proper Location of Equipment


Certainly, you definitely want to own a user-friendly HVAC system. Such system should include easy-to-operate controls and thermostats, easy-to follow instruction and maintenance manual and a long-term maintenance agreement
