Getting a New Central Air Conditioning System

Central air conditioning systems are frequently regarded as an important valuable selling point, so if there’s a possibility you’re going to move in the near future, a central air-conditioning is frequently a very sound investment. People with asthma and other allergy problems, central air conditioning systems with their ability to filter and “condition” household air can also have health benefits.

Three points to note when getting a new central air conditioning system:

Beware of Oversize Systems: Too much of something in this case isn’t a good thing- too much cooling capacity will make an AC system less efficient. It will lead to your system to cycle on and off frequently, producing excess wear and tear on the components and increasing the electric bill in for your home since the turning on process uses additional energy (just like with a car).

To be sure your AC system is suited to your home, ask a HVAC contractor to walk you through the calculation. The process consists of determining what the cooling capacity is based on an formula that takes into account the size of your home, its insulation, and the local climate.

Simple Is Generally Less Expensive: Staying with your existing system is frequently the less expensive route, especially if you’re planning on selling your home. If your AC system has enough capacity that it can be extended to cool new spaces, that approach will probably be less expensive than installing an all-new system.

Buy Quality: Smart shoppers don’t always buy bargains. Buying durable air conditioning systems that come with long warranties can cost more initially but they present fewer headaches. High quality central air conditioning systems generally are guaranteed for twenty years.
