Buying a new air conditioner tips

new air conditionerSo I’m writing this on tax day. Who wants to even think about spending money if you have to pay Uncle Sam?! On the other hand, maybe you’re getting a nice refund. Either way–if you need a new air conditioner this season, spend wisely by researching and understanding the purchase. Don’t let an AC salesman talk you into buying an oversized air conditioner unit. Sometimes all that jargon about efficiency sounds good, but more isn’t always better.

An AC salesperson should talk with you about your home’s air conditioner seasonal energy efficiency need based on:

  • the number and size of the windows
  •  the direction the room faces
  • the available shade
  • how well the room is insulated
  • how many people use the room

The top grade, top of the line unit isn’t always best for your home based on the factors above. Choose right based on the needs of your home’s size, your lifestyle and the factors outlined above. A heating and cooling professional can help you understand and decide the best option. Give us a call if you’re interested in a quote and more information.
