How to Choose the Right Air Conditioner

If your current AC is not working just as promised, or you find yourself in need of a new model installed from scratch, then you’re probably looking for answers. What type of AC would match your home’s needs? What do you need to do to make sure that you choose wisely this time and don’t waste your dollar on an inefficient system? Do you want a system with ducts or ductless? It’s best to get in touch with a professional early on in the process. But here are some things to start thinking about.

Ductwork or No Ductwork

One of the key decisions you’ll have to make when considering a new air conditioner is whether or not you want ducts in your home. For some, having them makes sense, and if you’re replacing your old system, you may even want to use your old ductwork, after having them inspected. While a centralized air conditioner is one that uses a single air handler to distribute cooled air throughout the home via ducts, a ductless system avoids this entirely by installing several air handlers within the home itself at key locations.

Budget-Friendly or High-Efficiency

You’ll have to reach out to our team for an actual quote, but generally speaking, the higher the energy efficiency rating of an AC the more expensive it is. That said, there is much to be said for adopting the latest technology now with the knowledge that it will pay off in the years to come.

Find the Right HVAC Contractor First

The key to a great air conditioner is finding a great contractor. Only a professional will be able to perform an adequate heat load calculation to ensure that your new system matches your home precisely. Moreover, the only way that your air conditioner will be installed correctly is by dealing with a trained and certified technician.
