Choosing a Great New AC System for Your Home

AC-unit-topviewHave you struggled with your air conditioner all summer? We’re creeping up on the end of the season now, so it’s time to start thinking about your next steps. If your air conditioning system hasn’t been able to cool your home the way you need it cooled, then it might be time for you to purchase a new air conditioner.

We know that you’re probably not jumping for joy at the prospect of this. Purchasing a new air conditioner is expensive, time consuming, and often stressful. If you need help with your air conditioning installation in Columbia, SC, you can contact our professionals. We know what it takes to get your air conditioning right.

What Goes Into Choosing a Great AC System?

Choosing a great air conditioning system is about a lot more than just about choosing a system that you think you might like and purchasing it. If you want a great air conditioning system for your home, make sure you do all of the following:

Consider the Ratings: You probably head over to your favorite review site before you eat out at a new restaurant or try a new coffee shop—why wouldn’t you do the same for your air conditioner? AC systems have SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings to measure how efficiently your air conditioner can run on an annual basis. These ratings can help you choose a high-efficiency system that gives you a lot of value for the cost.

Get to Know Your Needs: Do you know what type of cooling your home needs? Calculating the needs of your home is a science. You can have our professionals conduct a load calculation for you to determine exactly what your home needs, but you should also consider your personal preferences. Do you have a home with multiple people in it that bicker over the setting of the thermostat? Is your top priority cost? Do you want a system that’s easy on the environment? All these factors matter and can determine what type of AC system you need.

Have a Load Calculation: Our professional AC technicians can conduct a load calculation to perfectly determine the type of air conditioning system you need for your home. Load calculations consider the size of your home, the location, the amount of natural sunlight that enters your space, and even the amount of people living in your home. Determining your load calculation will help you get the perfect air conditioning system for your needs.
