Purchasing a new air conditioner is an opportunity to add true value to your home. It pays to be informed about air conditioning units and the contractors that install them.
Choosing Your AC Unit
When selecting your air conditioning unit, there are several points to consider beyond price. Below we’ve listed some of the factors that should be part of your decision in purchasing a new air conditioner for your home.
Air conditioning units are sized by tonnage. Bigger is not necessarily better when it come to your AC unit. Your air conditioning system serves two purposes: Cooling the air and removing humidity from your home. An oversized air conditioning unit will cool too quickly and not have time to also remove the humidity from the air. If the unit is undersized, it will run constantly trying to keep up with the need.
SEER – Energy Efficiency Rating
The SEER rating should be checked for any appliance purchase. You may pay more for a higher efficiency unit but the lower monthly energy bill over lifespan of unit may offset the higher price.
Lifespan of an AC Unit
Most air conditioners can be expected to last 10 to 12 years. If your current air conditioner is that old or older, it is definitely time to look for a new air conditioner for your home.
Choosing the Right AC Contractor
Installing a central air conditioning system is not a DIY job. It is also not a job for the local handyman. For professional guidance in the selection of your unit and assurance that the install is done properly, always hire a licensed and insured air conditioning professional. Look for a company that has a strong history, so you know they will be there to service you in the future.
Once your new air conditioner is installed, it needs proper maintenance to keep it running efficiently. We highly recommend an annual maintenance contract with our trained professionals to keep your AC system in good working order.
