So you’re going to build your dream home, or at least those are the plans that you have. Speaking of plans this is exactly what you need sorted out perfectly before you start the creation of your lovely home. Although we are sure that you will take every measure and consider everything there is to be considered – here are some advice on what mistakes need to be avoided in order to truly have a dream home.
1. Pay attention to your HVAC system.
Poor planning here can lead to issues with moisture and terrible damp issues. This can lend itself to great health concerns. Furthermore, careful attention should be given to the size of your units. Models that are too small will not be able to cope and won’t cool and heat your home efficiently. You’ll come to regret this when your home is chilly in the wintertime and warm during the hot summer months. On the other hand if you choose larger than needed they will utilize too much energy.
