There are several huge purchases in life that one should not take lightly — a college education, a new vehicle, and a brand new home. These all require a little bit of research, time, and consideration for alternatives. Ultimately, your decision leaves you with financial consequences. You weigh your options based on your ‘must-have’ features. Open concept floor plan, wood flooring, huge backyard — these are the priorities. Although these are important to you, it’s imperative that you investigate the heating and air conditioning system.

It’s not the most thrilling part, but it is one that could save you a pretty nice chunk of change. A faulty HVAC system could run you a couple of thousands of dollars just to hire someone who specializes in residential air conditioning repair.

Along with a home inspector, hiring an experienced and skilled air conditioning technician in Cypress would be wise for a home walkthrough to make sure everything is working as it’s supposed to. If it’s just you & your significant other, here is how you can check for a healthy heating and cooling system:


Any quality furnace will produce good airflow. Putting your hand over the register can allow you to check how much air is coming through. A clean, regularly changed filter has a lot to do with the airflow and air quality.


Rusty pipes often times are a sign of an older HVAC system. An A/C unit’s life average can vary from 16 to 20 years — anything older could mean that you’ll be burdened with the cost of repairs after you purchase the home.

Constant/Recent HVAC Repairs

Has the heating and cooling system received regular repairs recently? This could be an alarming sign. Make sure you ask questions regarding the repairs.

Buying your new home doesn’t have to be a stressful time; it’s all about asking the right questions that will leave you saving thousands on your heating and air conditioning system.
