Air Conditioning Installation

With the early arrival of heat this year, you have more than likely turned on your air conditioning already.

You may have been disappointed to find that your old system isn’t working like it used to. If repair can’t fix it, you may be in need of air conditioning installation services.

Buying a new system is a big investment, and should be considered with care. Doing research and consulting a specialist are recommended. If you have already begun research into air conditioning systems, you may be considering things such as brand and price, but there are other, very factors things to consider in your quest for a new AC system as well.

Size/Cooling Capacity

Did you know that air conditioners come in different sizes, and that depending on the size of your home, the size of the system that is appropriate will vary? The size of the system determines the cooling capacity, which is stated in British Thermal Units (BTU). If a system is too small for your space, it will have trouble cooling your home, which may result in higher energy costs. Systems with larger BTU have a greater cooling capacity. An air conditioning specialist can help you choose a system that is the proper size for your space and cooling needs.

SEER

The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio determines how much energy is used to power your air conditioning system. This factor is essential in determining the energy efficiency of a system. The higher the ratio, the more energy efficient the system is considered, and therefore the less energy that is used to operate. In 2006, laws were mandated to require all newly manufactured AC systems to have a SEER of 13 or greater1. It is important to understand that preserving energy equates to reduced utility bills for you, so consider a system with a high SEER.

In addition to the above considerations, you may also pay attention to the type of filter that your system requires (Is it washable? Disposable?), the refrigerant that it uses, as well as the level of noise that it produces while in operation. These many factors combined, add to the overall comfort you will experience with your system.
