What is the Best AC Unit for You?
When choosing the right AC unit, there are a few things you need to keep in mind in order to find the perfect one for your needs:
Central Air Conditioning
Central air conditioners will distribute air throughout the whole house, as opposed to a window or single-room air conditioner. In order to establish energy efficiency, there is the SEER (Season Energy Efficiency Rating). The higher the number, the more efficient the unit will be, and it will cost less to provide cooling to the home. In addition to the SEER, there are other energy-saving features. These features include large coils, a variable speed blower, a fan-only switch, and a filter indicator light. You may not need an ultra high-efficiency air conditioner unless you live in an area that requires the air conditioner to run often. The size of the air conditioner will matter. The technicians should measure, but it will depend on the location, insulation, square footage and some other factors.
Ductless Air Conditioner
If central air conditioning is going to be too much of an undertaking to install the proper ductwork, there is the option of a ductless air conditioner. A ductless system will filter the air the best so, if allergies are a concern, this might be something to consider. If you want more control over the temperature in your home, but still want more air than a room or window unit can provide, then this could be a good compromise.
Window or Room Air Conditioner
A room air conditioner will only cool down one or two rooms in the house and may be more energy efficient if you only need to cool down certain areas or have a much smaller space. When choosing a room air conditioner, it’s necessary to pay attention to the size of the air conditioner. If too small, then it won’t be able to cool the space, and if it’s too large, it can cool too quickly, which can lower the humidity levels and make the room feel damp. There is also the question of energy efficiency. The Energy Efficiency Ratio should be on the unit, and you pay more for energy efficiency upfront but make up the cost over the life of the unit. You will want to choose the controls, which will allow you to have better control over the temperature. A window air conditioner won’t filter the indoor air as well as a central or ductless system.
