If you come home to a hot and humid house, you may notice something is wrong. If you have lived in your home for several years and have not had regular maintenance done on your unit, you may be in the market for a replacement. As stressful as this may seem, we are here to make this as easy as possible by answering any and all of your questions, and finding the best long term replacement for you.
The two main factors that you must address no matter your application are listed below.
- Sizing of your unit – if a unit is too small, no matter how efficient, it's not going to cool properly and cost you more money to operate. If the unit is too big, it will not dehumidify properly. Which isn’t good for your “real feel”, or any of your belongings in the house.
- Efficiency of your unit – there is a wide range of “SEER” (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings available. Not all seer ratings are right for you as odd as that sounds. *If you’re in town minimal, with minimal operating cost the return on a 20+ seer isn’t there for you.
With those two being the main driving force of your cost, they’re the most important to understand and imperative to get correct. There are other features within these main two categories like the type of thermostat as well as how the unit achieves its goals. These things are information that a good qualified technician should understand and explain for you. Any air conditioning replacement should at the end of the job look better than the existing unit as well as be more efficient.
