Are you in the market for a new air conditioner? If so, you are not alone. Dozens of homeowners every day are looking for the exact same thing. Maybe you want a new air conditioner to increase your home’s efficiency, or perhaps you just need an upgrade because your current unit is not doing the job. Whatever your reason may be, you are in luck because there are so many options available to you. Below are three things to think about when shopping around for different types of air conditioners:
1. Efficiency - One of the most important parts of your home’s heating and cooling system is efficiency. Without it you will pay more and your home will not be as well serviced. One way to improve efficiency is to purchase the right types of air conditioners, but another way so to make sure that your system is properly sealed and insulated. Doing this can increase efficiency by as much as 20 percent.
2. Lifespan - The typical lifespan of an air conditioning unit is between 10 and 15 years if it is properly maintained. When you are shopping for a new unit, you may want to ask the seller how long the unit they are selling you is meant to last. Whether you are purchasing an HVAC system for a residential or a commercial space, you want your purchase to do its job and to last.
3. Maintenance Contracts - If you talk to a HVAC contractor you will quickly realize that there are common types of air conditioning repair that happen more than others. That is why most HVAC manufacturers say that their systems should be serviced at least once every year. Lucky for you, many new HVAC units come with some type of maintenance contract once they are purchased. That means that you won’t have to worry about keeping your own schedule, the company who sold you the unit will do that for you. What’s not to love about that?
As you can now see, there are so many different types of air conditioners to choose from that you are bound to find exactly what you need for your specific space. Air conditioning companies are well versed in what their units can do, how long they last, and what type of maintenance they need. If you are not sure what you need, they can help. Remember to ask questions and purchase only what your property needs. You’ll be glad you did!
