Purchasing a new air conditioning system is a big investment for your home, so you want to make sure you don’t just pick the first system that you see. As with any big purchase, taking the time to research your options and talk with a professional is your best option. Here are three things to look for when buying a new AC.
A High SEER Rating
When looking for a new air conditioning system, pay attention to the SEER rating. ‘SEER’ stands for seasonal energy efficiency rating and is used to measure how well an air conditioning system can convert electricity into cooling power. Paying attention to the SEER rating when shopping for a new AC is important because it will determine how efficient the air conditioning system is. As a result, the SEER rating can have an effect on your energy bills and the overall comfort of your home. For good measure, look for an AC with a SEER rating of at least 14, the minimum efficiency allowed as of 2015.
The Appropriate Size
Not all air conditioners are created equal. And when it comes to selecting a new AC, bigger doesn’t always mean better. In fact, just because an air conditioner is big, it doesn’t mean it will cool your home faster. An AC that is too big (or too small) won’t be able to cool your home efficiently and this can create hot and cold spots, insufficient cooling, humidity and more, all while driving up your energy bills.
A Trusted HVAC Company
Picking the right air conditioner is only half of the battle. You need a trusted HVAC company with the necessary skills and experience to install it, too. Many home and business owners underestimate how important AC installation is, but a faulty installation can lead to big problems—think inefficient cooling and heating, high energy bills and damage to your brand new AC system.
