What Every Homeowner Should Know About Their Air Conditioner
Air Conditioning systems work in conjunction with your furnace. A properly sized cooling unit will efficiently keep your home comfortable during the summer months. Like your furnace, your air conditioner has several moving parts and components that are required for longevity, efficiency, safety, and comfort.
How do you know if you are getting the right air conditioner and what are the different options? Here is what a homeowner should look for:
Air Conditioner Efficiency
Air conditioners are given a SEER rating, Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. The minimum SEER rating is 13 and they can go up into the low 20’s. Considering the history of air conditioning units, a 13 SEER air conditioner is fairly energy efficient. In Northern Idaho, our summers are hot, but short. This allows us the opportunity to take advantage of the less expensive air conditioners that are less energy efficient, and still not break the bank on electricity costs. However, there are certain circumstances where it makes sense to upgrade to a higher SEER rating.
- Noise: More efficient units are much quieter
- Multi-Level Home: A challenge to cool, a higher-efficiency unit will do a better job of evenly distributing the cool air
A Trademark Mechanical Comfort Specialist will help you determine the air conditioner that makes the most sense for your home. Call (208) 772-5269 today to set up a free, no obligation in-home consultation.
Air Conditioner Size
Like furnaces, sizing is a crucial part of an air conditioner’s lifespan, efficiency, ability to cool, and dependability. To ensure maximum benefit to you and your family, insist on a heat load/heat loss calculation for an experienced HVAC contractor. If not, you could end up buying the wrong size unit. Too small and it will run continuously, cost you a fortune to cool your home and your family still won’t be comfortable. Too large of a unit will cycle on and off and will prematurely fail.
Our Comfort Specialists will help you find the right-sized unit for your home, ensuring an efficient system that will keep your family comfortable for years to come. Call Trademark Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning today at (208) 772-5269 to schedule a free in-home consultation.
