Efficiency Ratings and Air Conditioning Installation: How Do You Choose?
When it’s time to pick out a new air conditioning system, you’ve got a lot of different options to sort through. Air conditioners come in all kinds of forms, with varying efficiency ratings, types, brands, and sizes. Which one is the right system for you will depend on a lot of factors, including the size of your home, the layout of your ducts, and the number of rooms and members of the household. So how do you select the right unit?

We carry a large selection of air conditioning systems, including heat pumps and ductless mini splits, and we will work with you to find the unit that best suits your particular situation.

The first step in ensuring you get the most efficient cooling system possible is making sure your new unit is the proper size for your home. No matter how highly rated your air conditioning system is, if it’s not the correct size according to the number of rooms in your home, the amount of insulation inside, and many other factors, it will not cool your home as efficiently as intended. An air conditioning system that is too big may short cycle, starting and stopping frequently and consuming energy in the process. A system that is too small will use up more energy in an attempt to cool down a room that is larger than its capacity.
When it comes to choosing an energy-efficient installation, look to the SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) rating and check for an ENERGY STAR label. This label means that your new unit is proven to consume little energy while providing. The SEER rating for air conditioning systems sold and installed in our area must be at least 14. However, you should look for a number closer to 20 if you want optimal efficiency, as this can cut your bills drastically.
