HVAC Buying Guide for Charlotte, NC

Choosing the right HVAC system for your home or business requires careful thought and planning. This project will require that you rely heavily on your HVAC contractor for a quality installation and one that meets your performance and efficiency needs. Since hiring an HVAC contractor is one of the most important facets of the project, this HVAC buying guide will place a high emphasis on selecting the right contractor for your job.

Charlotte’s Climate for HVAC Considerations

Charlotte’s climate is a good choice for property owners due to its moderate seasonal temperatures. Overall, the city receives over 200 days of sunshine and approximately 100 days of rain. Temperatures range from an average of 88 degrees during the summer to 34 degrees during the winter season. Rainfall averages 44 inches per year, which is a little over the U.S. average of 37 inches. While the average snowfall in the U.S. is 25 inches, Charlotte averages only 4 inches, annually. The city does have a low comfort index rating of 37 out of a 100 compared to the U.S. average of 44 out of a 100 meaning Charlotte experiences hot and muggy conditions.

Climate conditions are a factor when deciding on the type and size of HVAC system that will do a good job of handling weather conditions efficiently. Discuss the pros and cons of each system type with consideration given to the climate conditions in Charlotte. Purchasing a unit that is either too large or too small leads to unnecessary stress on the unit that can result in untimely maintenance and repair along with higher monthly utility bills.

Charlotte HVAC Contractor Validation

Available for use by the public for free, you can use the search tool at the North Carolina Licensing Board for General Contractors website to verify a contractor’s license. It is in your best interest since a HVAC system is a significant investment to verify that an experienced and professional HVAC contractor is on the job.

Also, use the resources of the Better Business Bureau for fact checking and the background work history of a contractor or company. By checking the license, you can avoid frauds by viewing any negative reviews by customers, pending legal action, or complaints filed.

Always ask for proof of insurance and the contractor’s license number. Without these, your investment is at risk. Since an inspection and a permit issued by the city is usually required, if you use someone who does not have the proper credentials, you are leaving yourself open to more costly repairs and maintenance as well as voiding the warranty by the manufacturer that requires only a licensed HVAC contractor to install the system.

Tips when interviewing potential HVAC contractors include:

  • Getting a complete estimate from more than one contractor
  • Comparing costs
  • Getting a set completion date, not an open-ended date
  • Ask about additional fees and charges not included in the estimate
  • Request proof of insurance and a license number
  • Get a copy of the signed and fully dated estimate

Permit and Inspection Information in Charlotte

Nine times out of ten, a permit and one or two inspections will be required by the city. This ensures the project has followed established building codes and has adhered to set rules and regulations. Not getting a required permit or inspection can result in fines and citations.

Permit and inspection information for Charlotte is available by contacting the  Mecklenburg County Code Enforcement office at 2145 Suttle Avenue, Charlotte, 28208. You may also call customer service for assistance at (980) 314-2633.

Charlotte HVAC Resources and Financing

Before getting started on any home improvement project, it is best to have your budget and financing options in place.

A new HVAC system can cost several thousands of dollars and you must be prepared for unexpected expenses not included in the estimate.

One way to fund the project is to use the equity in your home with a home equity loan. Generally, this type of loan has a competitive interest rate. A small home improvement loan from your bank or private lender are also options.

To help defray the cost of a new HVAC installation, many programs are available in North Carolina for energy efficient systems as well as duct work. Two websites to consider are the U.S. Department of Energy DSIRE website and Energy Star. Both have helpful information for available tax credits, rebates, loans, and incentive programs.

In addition to the websites mentioned above, you can also search for available rebate and incentive programs in your area by visiting the Massave website.

Return on Investment

Installing a new HVAC system in your home or business provides many benefits to you and your family or customers. Aside from obvious comfort benefits, you should also expect a higher value placed on your property. A new HVAC system provides an outstanding upgrade you can highlight and use as a promotional tool should you decide to sell your home in the future.
