5 Things To Consider When Choosing a New Air Conditioner

Posted on: June 12, 2014

1. Efficiency

Look at the system’s ENERGY STAR® rating to see how much energy you can expect to pay during a typical year. While more efficient systems often cost more initially, over time they are a good investment and will result in lower operating costs.

2. Reliability

A new air conditioner is a big investment, so it’s important to choose a system that will provide years of reliable operation with the least amount of service related costs. Choose products from a reputable manufacturer with a long history in the industry.

3. Quiet Operation

While air conditioners are becoming quieter, they can still produce noise as high as 80 decibels. Look for features like variable speed operation, which can reduce noise significantly.

4. Humidity Control

To maintain proper humidity levels, choose a thermostat that controls both temperature and humidity. You might also consider a comfort system with a dehumidifier.

5. Healthy Indoor Air

If you have pets or someone in your household suffers from allergies or respiratory problems, adding a whole house air cleaner to your furnace or air handler will capture the small contaminants in every room of your home.
