Purchasing an A/C unit is akin to making an investment in your home. As a new A/C unit has a lifespan of 15 to 20 years, this is a decision you do not want to take lightly. From choosing a reliable contractor to finding a system that works for your needs, there are numerous factors to consider before purchasing an A/C unit.
Is your existing A/C unit 10 years or older? If so, you may want to consider getting a new one even if it is still functioning. Advances in technology as well as new regulations mean that newer units are more energy-efficient, allowing you to save on energy bills in the long run. One way of determining the energy efficiency of a unit is through its Energy Efficiency Rating (EER), standardized by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE). The rating system goes by stars, and the more stars a unit has, the more energy efficient it is.
Choosing an A/C unit of the right size is critical. If you get one that is too big or too small, this can result in your home not being cooled properly or unnecessary energy being wasted by the unit turning on and off frequently. Your contractor will be able to help you determine the perfect size for your needs, but going in with information about the square footage of your home can help.
Whether you decide on a window unit or a split unit – with one compressor outside the house and one in the room – the most important thing is to get it properly installed. Poor A/C installation can result in problems down the road, and you will end up spending more to get it repaired. To this end, your choice of contractor is extremely important.
Not only can the right contractor recommend the best system for your needs and get it properly installed, they are the ones you will be relying on for future repair and maintenance services. Regular inspections and maintenance are critical for prolonging the lifespan of your A/C unit, allowing any problems to be identified early and nipping them in the bud before they can get worse, saving on hefty repair costs.
