The decision to replace your air conditioner is one that a lot of time and consideration goes into being that it’s such a large investment. The return on this investment can also help your family by making your home more efficient, save money where you weren’t before, and improve the indoor air quality of your home. All of this can be done if you know the right questions to ask! We’ve compiled a short list of questions you’ll want to keep in mind when replacing your AC:
#1: What type do I need?
There are all kinds of stipulations for choosing the right type of system for your home. There are so many factors to take into account when choosing the best size, brand, and make/model to compliment your home’s current conditions. Your salesman will be able to take everything into account to reach a confident decision for your family’s home.
#2: What size do I need?
This is an important question to ask in order to avoid purchasing an incorrect size which can throw off the balance of efficiency in your home. It’s imperative to have a professional determine the correct sized unit by performing a load calculation. An undersized or an oversized unit can cause your home’s energy levels to be skewed costing you more money.
#3: What else should I take into consideration?
When making the investment for a new AC there are several accommodating factors to keep in mind. Along with the outside unit you’ll also need to think about the thermostat location, ductwork, and air handler. The location and ease of access for these accommodating pieces is also something you’ll want to take into consideration.
#4: What is SEER Rating?
SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. The higher the ration, the more efficient the system. It is a requirement for all air conditioners to be at least 13 SEER; however, these ratings can go all the way up to 23 SEER. Your salesman will be able to help you further understand these numbers and what it means to your costs.
#5: What about warranty?
Along with the four questions above, you’ll also want to ask about your warranty options. Be certain to ask the questions to help you fully understand what your warranty covers as well as for how long. Along with asking about part warranty, be sure to find out about the option for labor warranty. Being informed on your warranty will save you stress in the future!
