3 Factors to Consider When Purchasing a New Air Conditioner

We are in the midst of some seriously hot weather here in Phoenix, AZ, with daytime temperatures well into the triple digits day after day. We sincerely hope that your air conditioning system is holding up just fine and that you are able to live in the level of comfort that we know you deserve. If you’ve come to realize, though, that your air conditioning system just isn’t cutting it anymore, or if your AC has unexpectedly given out on you this summer, contact a member of our staff right away. We are happy to ensure that your replacement air conditioner is precisely what you’ve been looking for.
  1. Efficiency Rating: You don’t need us to tell you that air conditioners are run pretty much around the clock for much of the year in our area. Considering just how much use your air conditioner is going to see over the course of the long cooling season, it really makes sense to ensure that you are investing in an efficient air conditioning system. There are designated high-efficiency models available, and all air conditioners are rated with a SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio). Consider your options and find the most efficient air conditioner that fits your purchasing guidelines.
  2. Your Budget: It is very important that you have a concrete working budget lined out before starting the AC replacement process. Generally speaking, the more efficient the air conditioner, the more it is likely to cost. This can lead to a few mistakes. Some homeowners may be enticed by high efficiency ratings, and wind up biting off more than they can comfortably chew financially. Others look to save some money at the time of purchase, only to wind up with a subpar cooling performance and high energy costs down the line. We’ll help you to get the most for your money.
  3. System Design: Remember that you don’t have to stick with the same type of system that you’ve always used in order to cool your home. There are many different options to consider, including heat pumps and ductless mini splits, in addition to traditional central air conditioners. Let us know if you have any questions regarding available systems.
