Tips for Selecting a New AC Unit

It is the beginning of August and you are on the hunt for information about selecting a new air conditioner in Royersford, PA. This isn’t ideal, but it is something we can help with!

Getting a new air conditioner in your home is something you want to have done in a timely manner. To start, this means knowing when to get the job done. Then you’ll need to work with a professional to select the system you want to have installed. After that, you can work with us to get your new system installed and running ASAP.

Let’s start by figuring out what options you can consider for your next system.

3 Factors to Consider When Choosing an Air Conditioner

Here are some of the possible factors you may want to think about when choosing a new air conditioner in your home.

1. Take time to think about your ductwork

Do you have ductwork? If you do, it may be a good idea to have a technician do a quick check of your ductwork. That way you can make sure that it is in good enough shape to actually help deliver the temperature-controlled air that your air conditioner creates. If your ductwork is in optimal condition, you can choose a ducted system if you want one. If you have bad ductwork or you don’t have any ductwork, you may want to choose a ductless HVAC unit instead.

2. Figure out EER and SEER ratings

When you select a newer AC unit, you will need to make sure that you choose one with the ideal Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) and Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating. You’ll want to make sure that those ratings are right for your region and your home’s cooling needs. And, yes, you should consider both ratings. These are numbers you’ll need to know to get a system that cools your home well and doesn’t cost too much to do it.

3. Think about if you need an AC only or a heater too

If you need an air conditioner installed in your home, it may also be a good idea to think about a heater as well. This is because you can accomplish both goals at once if you want. A heat pump can offer you home comfort throughout the year. This is why, if you need a new system installed, it is a good idea to consider if you need a system that can accomplish both jobs or if you only need a cooling system.

Choosing a new air conditioner isn’t a small decision. That is why it is a good idea to talk to a technician about your system options and your cooling needs. One of our professional contractors can get you paired with the best system for your home and do the math necessary to size and install it properly.
