Key Things to Consider When Buying New Air Conditioners
Whether your current air conditioner needs to be replaced or you want a newer air conditioner with better efficiency, there are a lot of things to consider when buying a new air conditioner. Since this is something that you’ll be investing in, it’s important to know as much as you can to help you make the best decision for your home. A few of the keys to consider are energy efficiency, size, location of installation, the warranty, airflow, and any special features. See below for details about each of these factors to consider:
- Energy efficiency- With newer technology, there is a lot greater energy efficiency. Even if you spend more upfront, a higher-efficiency unit will save you more in utility payments over time and is worth the investment.
- Size– The size refers to amount of space the unit is able to cool, and it is absolutely necessary to get the right size. Getting a unit that is too large or too small can have costly effects on your monthly utilities.
- Warranty– If spending more on your new air conditioner also means having a better warranty, it’s important to weigh that against not having the product guaranteed for at least some period of time.
- Airflow- Ducts need to be in good shape and the appropriate size for the new system being installed. Otherwise, the airflow will be restricted.
