Tips When Buying an AC System on ABC Morning Blend
Navigating through buying a new AC system can be difficult. That’s why our team is here to remind you of some of the most important things to keep in mind as you search for a new AC system.
Finding an installer who is licensed and insured
Making sure your installer is licensed and insured is Important in the event that they are installing the system in your home. If something goes wrong, that company has the license and insurance to protect the homeowner. It is important to find a licensed and insured company that you feel comfortable with.
Know your options.
Comfort specialists come to the homeowners house to go over all options available and make sure you find the right unit for you. We know buying a new unit is a big decision, and we want to ensure that you know all the options available so that you can find the right fit for your home. AC Warehouse has all the brand options available so that you can find the right unit for you. This lets you feel confident you made the right choice.
When the comfort specialist visits your home, they will walk through and ask about the air, analyzing the space to find the right unit size for you. Installation, heat load, etc will play a role in making sure you have the right size unit for your home. Too large of a system will short cycle, which will shut off and turn on without removing the humidity. Too small of a system will continuously run without cooling the home to the desired temperature.
Seasonal energy efficiency rating can play a major role in AC systems. A basic system will start at 14 SEER and go up to 20 SEER. As it increases in efficiency, SEER can lower your power bill. Another benefit is additional technology with thermostats, smart control, and more.
Air conditioning maintenance
Once a homeowner installs a new system, it can be easy to move on. It is important to remember the system needs to be maintained no different from your car. WE recommend having your system cleared at least once a year here in florida. With the major runtime AC units here, it is important to make sure your unit is clean and running up to manufacturer specs. Plus, if we find something during a maintenance check, it can help prevent a breakdown in the future.
