Tips for choosing a new AC unit
When purchasing a new AC unit, consider the following factors to choose the best HVAC system for your home!
Size and Location of House
A crucial factor to consider before buying a new AC unit is the size and location of your home. If your home has a big square footage or tall/wide rooms, there is more air to move which will require more energy. It will be important to buy a stronger AC unit if your home is large, and avoid wasting money on a larger system if you have a small house. The location of your home is also important. Homes in the south will generally require more energy output from AC units in the summer than homes in the north would. This idea can be reversed for the winter months. You should also be aware of how you use your home. There are some instances where buying a window unit or portable ac unit would be a better investment if you use certain rooms predominately.
Picking the right brand
Brands for AC units range from low cost to premium high cost and vary in durability. Lower end brands last around 10 years while higher end brands can last up to 20. It is also pertinent to check the SEER standard of an AC unit you are considering. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, and represents the ratio between Btu’s of cooling produced from electricity used. Efficiency is an important factor to consider and can actually be worth a higher price upfront if your power bill is consistently lower over a long period of time.
If you fail to have your unit inspected you may inadvertently void your warranty. There are ways to avoid this problem, such as having a set schedule for an inspector to come.
