How to Choose the Right Air Conditioner for Your Home

Even though summer has only just officially begun, we’ve been feeling the heat for a while now. With that being said, hopefully you haven’t run into any detrimental problems with your air conditioning system. If you have though, and you are considering replacing your air conditioning system, then you have some considerations to make.

First off, you’ll want to decide if your current system is truly the best type of AC for your home and your needs. You’ll also want to consider its efficiency rating and the make and model of the air conditioner. That’s not all though. We’ve listed below some other very important factors.

Is It Correctly Sized?

If your air conditioner is too small for your home, it cannot adequately cool it down. On the other hand, if it’s too large then it will go through a process called short-cycling, where it turns on and off rapidly, wearing down the system.

There is a lot more that goes into sizing an AC unit than you may realize. In addition to the square footage of your home, your professional HVAC technician will look at your ceiling height, how many windows and doors are in your home, if you have any drafty areas, and more.

How Much Noise Does it Make?

No air conditioner is going to be 100% silent. However, some do make significantly more noise than others. You’ll want to consider your comfort, but also whether or not you have light sleepers in your home that may be disturbed by a system that’s too loud.

Hire a Professional for the Installation

Professional AC installation is a must. You do not want to trust this important job to an amateur or a DIY-enthusiast. Only a trained and licensed professional will be able to accurately size your system and know what to check for to ensure you get the most out of your air conditioner.
