Understand Your New System

If you're changing systems completely, you need to understand how it will operate in your home. For instance, you may find that the new high efficiency systems will allow you to keep your thermostat at a higher temperature. You may also want to install a UV light or other HVAC accessory with your new equipment. Make sure you understand how your new system will fit into your home before you have it installed.

Pick Your Thermostat

Since you're upgrading your HVAC system, it's time to get a new thermostat. Although you could just get a simple digital thermostat, it's probably best to spend some time investigating more comprehensive models. A smart or Wi-Fi thermostat can help you save money and energy on your home by allowing you to control it from your smartphone. You can even buy sensors for your home that connect to your thermostat to adjust the temperature when you're not there.

Meet With Your Contractor

Before your contractor starts any part of that installation, sit down with the company so you can fully understand your new system and how it's installed. You don't want any surprises if the procedure is more comprehensive than you were expecting. You also need to know what the contractor's expectations are for you while they are setting up your new system. The last thing you want is to not understand what is going on during the installation process.
