What to Know Before You Buy a New Air Conditioner
When you buy a new air conditioner, you are making an investment in your home’s comfort for years to come. However, for many homeowners, the idea of buying a new AC can feel a little intimidating. After all, there are so many brands, makes and models out there, how do you know which one to choose?
Well, with the help of an experienced HVAC professional, choosing the right AC is no trouble at all. However, there are still a few things that all homeowners should know before choosing a new air conditioner.
The SEER Rating
Nothing will be more important than the seasonal efficiency energy ratio (SEER) rating of your new system. The SEER rating measures how energy-efficient your system will be. The higher the rating, the less your energy bill will be.
For Florida homeowners, it’s important to have a system with a high SEER rating. Anything less than a 16 – SEER just won’t have enough cooling power in the summer.
The Size of Your Home
When it comes to cooling your home, getting a system that is too large is just as bad as getting a system that is too small. Undersized systems won’t be able to properly cool your home and will leave you with higher energy bills. However, a too large system will cool down your house too quickly. Once your home is cool, the system will automatically switch off and your AC will not run long enough to dehumidify your house.
Your Lifestyle Can Make A Difference
It’s also important to look at your lifestyle when buying a new air conditioner. Do you have pets? Do you work from home? Do you take a lot of vacations? Does anyone is your home have allergies?
All of these are important questions to go over with your AC technician. They will help you consider all these factors when choosing a new AC so you can find the perfect system.
