When it comes time to replace your A/C system, you want to make sure you’re choosing a system that is right for your family’s air conditioning needs, as well as your budget. After all, your air conditioner is likely one of the largest and most important appliances in your home, so you want to get the most out of it.
Whether your current system has begun to fail or you’re simply looking to improve your home’s overall comfort level and lessen your electric bills, here are few factors to consider before investing in new air conditioner:
Type of A/C System
The type of air conditioner that is best for you will depend on your home’s layout and your family’s specific heating and cooling needs. From straight cool systems, to heat pumps, to packaged systems for mobile homes, an Encore Air Conditioning Comfort Advisor will be able to help you find the perfect fit for your home and your budget.
Size of the System
Many homeowners do not realize how important it is for their central A/C system to be the right size for their home. If your air conditioner is too small, it will have difficulty achieving a comfortable temperature throughout your living space. Oppositely, while an oversized A/C system might not sound like a bad thing, a system that is too large may not be able to adequately remove excess indoor humidity. And that will leave your home feeling muggy, clammy and uncomfortable. Whether too big or too small, an air conditioner that is not correctly sized for your home may also leave you with unnecessarily high electricity bills!
When having a new central air conditioning system installed, be sure your installer does not rely solely on the square footage of your home to size your system. They should spend some time getting to know the layout of your home in order to determine the AC size that will run the most efficiently and effectively.
All air conditioners are given a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating, which measures a system’s cooling efficiency. The higher the SEER rating, the more energy efficient the system is and the lower your electric bill will be. As of January 2015, the U.S. Department of Energy requires all new central air conditioning systems to be at least 14 SEER. While an A/C unit with a higher SEER rating may cost you a little more up front, the energy savings in the long run will be well worth the investment! You can literally see energy savings of up to 60+% from your electric bill each month.
