5 Things To Keep In Mind While Buying An AC Unit

5 things to keep in mind while buying an ac unit

There are a few things to keep in mind when buying or replacing your Air Conditioning system. Here is a list of the five most useful things to know before purchasing an AC unit for your home.

  • Price of the unit
  • Efficiency of the unit
  • HVAC Contractors available to install the unit
  • Warranties available for the unit
  • Size of the unit

Unit size is perhaps one of the most important aspects to Air Condition installation. The square foot measurement of space you want to keep cool will usually be proportional to the size of your AC unit. If there is an exception, an HVAC contractor helping you with the installation should tell you.

Air Conditioner installation is not a DIY project. Always make sure you are working with a licensed HVAC contractor. An AC unit installation or similar heat pump installation is meant to last a decade or more and the installation shouldn't be left to an amateur.

Efficiency, Price, and Warranties

The efficiency of an AC unit is usually fairly easy to figure out. Name brand AC units usually come with a SEER rating, which stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. With proper help you can find out what a unit will cost you.

Understanding the available price and warranties is essential when making a purchase for something as important as an AC unit. If prices are too high many HVAC companies also find ways to offer loans and interest to potential buyers, and understanding how long a warranty lasts and what might void it can really save you money down the line.
