Do Your Homework Before Buying a New A/C Unit

How much research do you do as a consumer before you actually make a big purchase? When it comes to replacing your a/c unit make sure you do your homework before you move forward with a purchase. Make sure you understand all the air conditioning components, sizing and how the system operates.

By understanding your air conditioner and how it functions may mean significant savings for you. Today’s best air conditioning systems use 30% to 50% less energy to produce the same amount of cooling as air conditioners made in the mid 1970’s. Even if your air conditioner is only 10 years old, you may save 20% to 40% of your cooling energy costs by replacing it with a newer, more efficient model.

The amount of money you’ll save will vary depending on usage, temperature settings and other factors regarding how the unit is operated. The benefits from purchasing a more efficient unit is unique for each household as new air conditioning systems have different SEER ratings. The higher the SEER the more expensive your investment will be, however, usually they’re much more efficient and have better warranties.

As you research, ask questions, contact a professional air conditioning repair technician to help you understand what is available.
