Checklist for building a new house
When selecting an air conditioning or heat pump solution for your new home, there is a lot to consider. There are a lot of questions you should ask yourself before you sit with your architect or building consultant. We've organised these important questions into 3 main areas: your needs, your home and your future.
Do you want heating, cooling, hot water or a total solution?
Which type of renewable energy source can you rely on?
Are there government regulations or incentives for more energy efficient solutions?
What traditional energy sources will connect to your house?
How many rooms do you need to heat and cool?
Do you prefer an indoor or an outdoor installation?
Do you prefer emitters that are wall mounted, radiant heaters or invisible units?
Do plan on growing your family? Will there be significant changes in heating, cooling or hot water consumption?
How important to you is your carbon footprint? Do you want to incorporate renewable energy sources like solar?
Are you willing to spend a little more now, to save a lot on your future energy bills?
