The summer months can be brutal, and the last thing you want is for your air conditioner to stop working when you need it the most. The best thing you can do is be proactive and choose the right AC unit for your home before the heat hits.
The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is a measure of how much cooling a unit produces for the amount of energy it consumes. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient the unit and the lower your energy bills.
When looking for a new air conditioner, choose a unit with a SEER rating of at least 13. This is the minimum SEER rating required by the Department of Energy.
Our professional technicians can help you choose an air conditioner with the right SEER rating for your home. They can also help you repair, install, and maintain your AC system.
Size of the Unit
The size of the AC unit is vital because if it’s too small, it won’t be able to cool your home properly. Conversely, if it’s too big, it will cool your home too quickly and shut off before it can remove the humidity from the air.
To determine the right-size unit for your home, you’ll need our professional technicians to come and do an assessment. They’ll consider factors like the size of your home, the number of windows, the insulation, and more.
Type of Unit
The two main types of air conditioners are central AC units and ductless mini-split AC units.
Central AC units are the most common type of air conditioners. They’re powered by electricity and use a system of ducts to distribute the cool air throughout your home.
Ductless mini-split AC units are becoming more popular recently. They’re also powered by electricity, but they don’t use a system of ducts. Instead, they have an outdoor unit connected to one or more indoor units via refrigerant lines. The air conditioner you choose will depend on your budget and needs.
