A new AC installation will help with indoor humidity and temperature control, keeping your home comfortable. Service America Air and Heat highly recommends that you check the ducts at the same time you are installing the air conditioner; if any air ducts are loose or damaged, we can repair or replace them. The first step in buying a new air conditioner is to determine the size you need.
We are always here to promptly attend to your service needs. Please do not hesitate to call.
AC size is usually measured in BTUs (British Thermal Units) and is based on the size of the room or rooms you want to cool. It’s important to choose an air conditioner that is the right size for your space; a unit that is too small will struggle to cool the room, while a unit that is too large will waste energy and money.
Once you know the size you need, you can start looking at different types of air conditioners. Most common units are the split systems, and central air systems. Split systems are more permanent and consist of an outdoor unit and one indoor unit. Central air systems are the most expensive option and require ductwork to be installed throughout the house.
Consider its energy efficiency rating. Look for units with a high SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating, as these will be more efficient and cost less to operate. You’ll also want to consider the noise level of the unit. Look for models with a low decibel rating, especially if you’ll be using the air conditioner in a bedroom or other quiet space.
Installation of a split system and central air systems requires a more complex installation process. A professional installer will need to mount the outdoor unit and run ductwork throughout the house. When hiring an installer, make sure to choose someone who is experienced, licensed, and insured, also, look for reviews and ask for references before hiring. The cost of installation will vary depending on the type of air conditioner you choose and the complexity of the installation.
When shopping for a new air conditioner, consider the long-term costs. A more expensive, energy-efficient unit may cost more upfront, but it will save you money on your energy bills in the long run. You may also want to consider purchasing a maintenance plan or warranty for your air conditioner. This can help cover the cost of repairs and regular maintenance. Regular maintenance is important for keeping your air conditioner running smoothly. This includes changing the air filter regularly, cleaning the unit, and having it inspected by a professional twice a year.
