You’re in the market for a new air conditioning system. Chances are, you’ll notice an improvement in the power and performance of your cooling system right away if your technician installs the system properly and ensures that it is exactly the right size for your home. But we think you should spend a little time looking for the right system, one with all of the features you want to keep your family members healthy and to save money on your energy bills. Here are some features you can look for when selecting a new cooling system.
Saving money on the installation of the system is not as important as saving money each month if you’re looking at overall cost. The price of operating an inefficient AC can easily exceed the total cost of operation and price of a high-efficiency unit. These are the marks of an efficient air conditioner.
- High SEER rating: The SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) helps you determine how efficient your system is compared to others on the market. While the minimum SEER is 14, a unit is considered high efficiency when it has a SEER of 16 or higher.
- ENERGY STAR seal: This is the EPA’s seal of approval that the system is both efficient and high-performance.
- Variable speed fan: The fan automatically readjusts speeds to keep the temperature as close as possible to the thermostat setting.
You can also make a few optional upgrades if you want your system to perform to your liking. A zone control system, for example, allows you to control the temperature in different rooms or zones separately from other parts of the house. An add-on air filtration system can help to keep your air cleaner and healthier.
