What To Know Before You Buy Your AC Unit

Posted on May 15th, 2017 by Jupiter Tequesta

Your air conditioner system can last you years — 10 to 20 to be exact. So, when you’re in the market for a new unit, it’s important to take your time before you buy. Here are a few factors to consider.

What To Know Before You Buy Your AC Unit | Electrician| Jupiter | Jupiter-Tequesta | 1. Find the right HVAC expert. When it comes to buying a new AC unit, one of the main factors is hiring a company with a good reputation. Check out the Better Business Bureau, they keep a record of companies’ awards, reviews, and even complaints. Also, don’t forget to ask for licensing, bonding, and insurance before you hire any HVAC company.

2. Make sure you choose the correct size. According to Energy Star, “improper installation can reduce performance by as much as 30%.” So, make sure the HVAC contractor properly sizes the air conditioning unit before installing. You want your system large enough to cool down your home, but not enough where it wastes energy and electricity.

3. Don’t leave out ductwork inspection. If you install a new HVAC system with old, leaky ductwork, you may end up with inconsistent airflow and other efficiency problems. Speak with a professional first to avoid any wasted time, money and work.

4. Invest in an energy-efficient unit. The government now requires all AC units to have a SEER rating of 13 or higher. Although it may cost more upfront, the unit will use about 10 percent less energy.
