How do I select the right air conditioner for my home?
Learn the answer to one of the most common general service questions HVAC techs get asked.
If you’re wondering which air conditioner is best for your home, you’re asking one of the most common general service questions HVAC technicians get asked regularly. Because it’s a great question! It’s hard to know which AC is right for your home. That’s why the experts are here—to help guide you. Here are some tips straight from the horse’s mouth:
Choose the Right Size for Your Space
The size of your home is the determining factor for what size AC you should have. A larger unit does not equal a cooler house. In fact, if the AC is too big it will not cool effectively as it will go through too many on/off cycles to try to meet the temperature demands. This isn’t effective, or efficient. The same goes for a unit that is too small, which will have to work overtime to try to keep up, using extra energy without making your home more comfortable.
Choose the Right Energy Efficiency for Your Budget
The more energy efficient your air-conditioning system, the less energy you’ll use and the lower your utility bills will be. They pay for themselves over time in the money you save on your monthly usage. That being said, you also need to take your current budget into consideration when deciding on a system. Get the most efficient one you can, while keeping the price in line with what you want to spend.
Choose the Right Installer
A good HVAC contractor, company, dealer, or technician understands the importance of proper AC installation. Choosing who you trust is critical to getting the job done right. Improper installation can cost you money and time down the road.
If you’re wondering which air conditioner is best for your home, you’re not alone. Trust a reliable HVAC dealer to steer you in the right direction.
