Tips For Choosing an Air Conditioner

Things are heating up and you are on the hunt for a new air conditioner. Time is of the essence so you don’t have to go months without any source of cool air. But you don’t want to jump in and choose the wrong system. Selecting a new air conditioner for your home is an important choice because you’ll be stuck with that system for anywhere from 10 to 15 years!

So, how do you choose the right air conditioner? We’ve provided some great questions to consider that will help you choose your next air conditioning system here. What’s more, if you still aren’t sure which system is right for you, our team is always ready and willing to help.

What You Should Consider When Choosing an Air Conditioner

It is important to have an AC system that suits your particular cooling needs. You can make the selection process easier by considering these questions first:

Do you have ductwork?

Ductwork is necessary for specific types of air conditioners. If you already have ductwork in your home then there are plenty of system options available to you. If you don’t have ductwork in your home, you aren’t without options thankfully. A ductless AC can be a great fit for homes that can’t accomodate ductwork.

Do you want the ability to adjust temperatures per room?

A central air conditioner can keep the entire home optimally cooled to the same temperature. If you have some residents in the home that may like things a little warmer than others, this may be a point of contention. Ductless systems can be a great way to get everyone’s optimal temperature.

How much space do you have for the physical unit?

How much space do you have for an indoor and outdoor unit? If you have plenty, then you can choose a central AC, heat pump, or ductless system. If, on the other hand, you are a little short on space, then a heat pump or ductless system may be the best option to consider as these take up less room than central units.

How much square footage are you trying to cool?

Let’s talk tonnage! An AC’s cooling capabilities are measured in tonnage. This is important to know so you select the system with the appropriate amount of tonnage. For example, an air conditioner that needs two tons can cool a space of up to 1200 square feet. Make sure to remember to get the right size of AC so it isn’t to big or too small for your space.
