3 Tips to Know When Buying a New Air Conditioner System
Are you planning to buy a new central air conditioner for your La Quinta, California, home? An air conditioner is a major investment that requires research before making a purchase. Before buying a new air conditioner system, consider your comfort needs, understand SEER ratings, and schedule a consultation with a Manual J load calculation for your home.
Consider Your Comfort Needs
You rely on air conditioning to make your home comfortable. As you plan for an air conditioner upgrade, think about other home comfort products, as well. To promote enhanced air filtration, consider installing an air purifier. Ask us about more indoor air quality products you can use to complement your new air conditioner.
Understand Air Conditioning System SEER Ratings
The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, also referred to as SEER, details an air conditioner’s operating efficiency. The higher the SEER value within the range, the more efficient the unit will be and the less money it will cost to run. Select an air conditioning unit that scores well within its class and consider one with a variable speed motor for enhanced comfort.
Schedule a Manual J Load Calculation
An air conditioner should be sized correctly for your home. If the system is too large, it will cycle on and off without cooling your home efficiently. If it’s too small, the air conditioner may run continuously without providing the cooling you need.
To select the best air conditioner for your home, you need to identify your home’s cooling load. To determine this cooling load, our HVAC service technicians will perform a Manual J calculation. With this load calculation, our technician can make a few recommendations to help you choose the correct air conditioner for your home.
