How To Choose The Right Air Conditioner For Your Home?
There’s never going to be a good time to be without your air conditioner in the Arizona heat. If your air conditioner is more than 8 years old it could be time to replace it with a newer model that’ll give you more and cost you less. If you’ve reached this page, your air conditioner might have already given up and now you’re stuck wondering just how to choose the right air conditioner for your home, sound about right? At Velocity, we provide an AC replacement service in Gilbert AZ to take the hassle and confusion out of finding the best product to suit your needs. To put your mind at ease and give you some insight into just how our expert HVAC technicians will assess, recommend and install your new air conditioner, have a look at the quick guide below that covers the 3 main things you need to consider before you buy.
Type Of Air Conditioners
The two most common types of air conditioner are a split-system or a packaged unit. The split system contains one outdoor cabinet that houses the condenser and compressor, while the indoor cabinet contains the evaporator and the pump and components for your heating. This is the best choose for homes that don’t yet have a/c or have equipment so old, it pays to combine it with your current furnace. While a packaged unit has all the parts stored in one cabinet and often contains heating coils for a furnace helping you save space and save on maintenance. Your technician will be able to advise the best type for you based on your current setup and usage.
Model and Features
Modern central air systems are now made to be highly energy efficient, even if you’ve only had your current unit for ten years you could still stand to save 20-40% on fuel costs when you upgrade. However, not all units are made equal in other ways and so it’s important to get a consultation which is automatically part of the Velocity AC replacement service in Gilbert, AZ. Energy guide labels are present across all the models we stock to ensure value for money and quality you can truly believe in. Your unit should run quietly and have functions such as a fan only switch that’ll allow you to use the system for ventilation at night with lower running costs and a filter checker, to alert you to system errors and a fan delay switch that makes sure the fan stops running a few minutes after the compressor when you turn the unit off to help you save further.
Size and Location
The size and location of your air conditioner really matter and this is the area that people don’t make the right choice and usually focus their decision solely on price. Ironically, a central air system that’s proportional to the size and usage of your home will help to slash your bills and reduce the risk of repairs and require less maintenance.
