When your AC system finally kicks the bucket, replacing it can be painful. It is a large expense that many homeowners aren’t ready to buy. However, when you are faced with AC replacement, it is important that you find the right one for your home so that you don’t have to think about replacing it again anytime soon. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to talk about what you need to consider when you are choosing the right AC unit for your home.
Choose the Right Size Central AC Unit
One of, if not THE most important things to think about when you are choosing a new AC unit for your home is the size. The size will make or break your AC system. If you choose an AC unit that is too small for the home, the system will be running around the clock, and you will still feel uncomfortable. If you have a unit that is too large for your home, the system will be constantly turning on and off which is known as short cycling. This is inefficient and will be hard on your unit as well as your pocketbook.
Are High Energy Efficiency AC Units Worth It?
You may not realize how important energy efficiency is until you get an efficient AC system and see the impact on your monthly energy bill. Every AC unit is given a SEER rating to help you know how energy efficient the unit will be. The higher the rating, the more efficient you can plan on the AC unit being. If you have an old, worn out unit, it would more than likely get a low SEER rating as the older a unit is, the less efficient it is. Look for a unit that gets a SEER rating that is between 15-17. While they may cost more, it will be more budget friendly in the long run.
Which AC Has Best Features?
There are several features that you can get with a new AC unit today. Some of the features that you may decide you want could include:
– Fan only options: There are several months out of the year that you may find a fan is enough to keep you comfortable.
– Auto delay switch: When your AC system shuts off after cycling, there is a lot of cooled air trapped in the unit still. Older models will simply let that dissipate while newer models will continue to push that cooled air throughout the house before shutting off. This way you know you are getting all the cold air you have already paid for.
