Owning a multifamily home may be great for those who are looking to make money from real estate. However, it is important to consider which type of HVAC system is best for your property in terms of cost and energy efficiency.
Should You Use Central or Individual Systems?
It is possible to install one central heating and air conditioning system for a multifamily home. Central HVAC components tend to be more expensive to purchase and install, but they may be more efficient in meeting each unit’s energy needs. They may also be easier to maintain throughout their useful lives.
Individual systems tend to use more energy, which may increase each unit’s heating and cooling bills. However, they are generally less expensive to install. A professional from 4 Seasons Heating & Air in Alpharetta may be able to help you to determine which type of system best fits your needs. He or she may also be able to install those components for you.
What Type of Delivery System Would You Use?
There are many different types of products that you can use to deliver hot or cold air throughout a multifamily property. For instance, if you are looking to save money on installation costs, it may be best to go with an electric baseboard heater or a wall-unit air conditioner.
If you want a product that is efficient and can provide both heating and cooling, it may be best to install a four-pipe system. The benefit of this type of system is that it can provide hot air to one unit and cold air to another at the same time. This can be ideal if you like it warmer at night while your tenant likes to keep it cooler during the overnight or early morning hours.
