If you’re in the market for a new air conditioning system, you’ll need to consider a lot of different factors before you make your choice. This will obviously be a significant investment, so take your time and do some research. That way, you’ll have the best chance of making the best choice possible. Here are a few considerations to keep in mind.
This, of course, should be your top consideration when it comes to choosing an air conditioning system. The best systems are efficient enough to where they don’t need to use a lot of electricity in order to keep you comfortable. As a result, you won’t pay as much for your energy bill each month. Find a model that is not only efficient, but also lasts long and won’t need to be serviced very often.
If your system is too small, it will have to work too hard to keep you comfortable. However, you can also purchase a system that is too large. When this happens, it doesn’t do a good enough job of removing humidity from indoor air. In addition, it will also have to cycle on and off too often, increasing wear and tear and reducing lifespan. Talk to a trained professional who can help you choose the size that is exactly right for your needs.
Look for a high SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating). In a nutshell, the higher the SEER number, the more efficient the system will be. A higher-rated unit will cost more, but it will very likely pay for itself in the long run through monthly energy savings.
