Things to Consider When Buying a New Air Conditioner

Need a new air conditioning unit? This is a major investment for a homeowner and you’ll want to make sure you have all of the information necessary before you make your final decision. Of course, a new air conditioner should only be installed by an A/C service professional so there are a few items you will want to discuss with your HVAC contractor:

System type: What type of system do I need? System options include straight cool and heat pump.
Efficiency: what efficiency rating is recommended? The higher the SEER or HSPF, the more efficient the model.
Size: What size system do I need? A heat load calculation will determine the correct size.
Rebates: Are rebates available? Rebates are sometimes offered through the manufacturer, the utility company, etc.
Warranty: How long are parts and labor covered? Ask about warranties offered by the manufacturer and the installer.
Price: How much will the entire system cost, including changes to your home’s electrical or duct system? You’ll want to know if there are seperate costs associated with the installation ahead of time.
Options That Are Beneficial to You

There are products and services that can really save you money–in the short or long run. Ask your A/C service professional these questions to learn what he can offer you.

  • Do you offer preventive maintenance programs? These extend the life of your air conditiong unit and keep your system functioning properly.
  • What about programmable thermostats? Using programmable thermostats to alter the temperature in your home to accommodate usage can add up to big savings.
  • Does my duct system have holes or leaks? Investing in a new air conditioning unit while your duct system needs repair is like throwing money out of the window.

This information may be basic but it is a good foundation for your next A/C purchase. And remember, ask your A/C service professional to provide you with a written estimate listing the equipment quoted.
