What Questions to Answer When Choosing Your AC Unit

Make sure to consider these questions and their answers before selecting your next air conditioning system.

How much space can you spare for your AC unit?

This is going to be important because you don’t want to purchase an AC unit that you don’t have space for. Make sure to take stock of how much space you have available for your indoor unit and your outdoor unit before forging ahead.

Do you already have ductwork or are you willing to invest in installing ducts?

You absolutely need to take the ductwork situation into account. If you have ductwork in your home we need to check and see what condition is in. If you do not have ductwork at home you need to consider whether or not you want ductwork and are willing to pay for installation in upkeep. considering all of this will help you choose between a ducted or a ductless system.

What size of air conditioner do you need?

We aren’t talking about the physical space the unit takes up this time. When we mention sizing your AC we are talking about how much cooling it can produce. For example, a 1200 square foot space would need a system that could provide about 2 tons of cooling power. Factors like the number of floors, the number of doors, the number of windows, and other things can also impact how much power your AC needs to handle.

Will you be on the hunt for a heater come the fall season?

We realize that this one might seem like it is jumping the gun but it is also going to be an important question to consider. This is a question you shouldn’t forget to ask because it can be a deciding factor between investing in a central AC or a heat pump. This is because a heat pump can provide both heating and cooling so if you are in the market for a heater as well as an AC, you should consider all the options available to you.
