When it comes to upgrading your home air conditioning system you don’t want to purchase an under-performing brand; because over time you will have to pay hundreds in repair and high energy costs. You will want to make sure that you look for certain criteria when looking for an air conditioning brand. Before we go on I want to make sure that we all know we are not talking about window units – we are talking about full system air conditioning for your home.
Carrier has built a very good reputation for building affordable and reliable air conditioning systems for residential buildings. These systems have been able are built to last and even when they need repair there are many professional Carrier air conditioning repair companies, like Aire Serv. Their technicians are trained to work on these systems and get them back into operating capacity.
In order to gain the max benefit out of your new system it is important to understand a few things before making the final purchase. You need to know the amount of space that you will have to cool so that you can by a powerful enough system. If your new system is too small then you will never be able to keep your home at the temperature wanted.
The other two aspects that you want to think about when purchasing a new system is the efficiency and sound. The more powerful the condenser unit will lead to a louder operating sound which can cause some discomfort for you and your neighbors. Make sure you purchase a system that doesn’t operate about 75 decibels; it will be difficult to find an affordable system that operates lower than 40 decibels.
Finally you want to purchase one with the best SEER, seasonal energy efficiency ratio, rating. The higher the SEER rating the higher your energy savings will be. You can read California’s 2013 Integrated Energy Policy Report to get a specific breakdown of how to calculate the SEER rating for your current system. This can be very complicated to do by your-self, but it is possible. The main object to remember is that the higher the rating the more your savings will be using that system.
Now you have all the tools needed to purchase the best system for your home. Remember that this is a very big investment and you should purchase a brand that has a great track record and that is easily repaired and installed. Make sure you look at the SEER rating and the decibel rating for each product before you make the final purchase.
