When you are buying a new air conditioner, It’s crucial to educate yourself with the key factors in your buying decision. As a professional HVAC Sales Manager, for over a decade, I have gathered some valuable information that I like to share with my clients. Let’s get started:
Understanding your A/C Operation:
The central air conditioner works together with the HVAC system to control humidity, ventilation,
and temperature in your home, typically to maintain a cool atmosphere in warm conditions. It helps maintain the humidity level by dehumidifying the air in your home. Your air condition also keeps the air circulating to provide you with fresh and cool air on hot days and humid nights.
What size central air conditioner should I buy?
Too big? It will not be energy efficient. Most will turn on quickly, cool your house, then turn off. Then repeat the same cycle.
Too small? Your A/C will constantly run trying to cool your home. This will increase the wear and tear on the unit.
Just right? a properly sized central A/C will run through the required amount of cycles to keep your house comfortable, but will not run inefficiently.
To get an estimated size of the heating or cooling product that you need for your home, you can use the chart below:
|Home Size (Sq Ft)||Furnace Size||A/C Size|
|Up to 1300||40,000 BTU||1.5 Ton|
|1300 to 1500||40,000 BTU||1.5 Ton|
|1500 to 2000||60,000 BTU||2 Ton|
|2000 to 2500||80,000 BTU||2.5 Ton|
|2500 to 3200||100,000 BTU||3 Ton|
|3200 to 3500||120000 BTU||3.5 Ton|
How often should I do maintenance on my air conditioner?
Keeping your AC system running smoothly depends on proper maintenance and service needs. The Importance of annual HVAC system maintenance is greater than one may think. Just like your car needs a maintenance according to the manufacturer’s specifications, your HVAC system needs to be maintained by the industry pros every year.
What type of warranty do I get with my new air conditioner?
Typically, all our products come with one year labor and ten years limited parts warranty, to ensure your investment is safe long term. You can also extend your warranty for up to ten years on labor as well. Ask us for more details.
