Central air conditioners work by circulating cool air through a system of supply and return ducts. These ducts carry the cooled air from the central AC to your entire home, then flow back to the unit.
But as AC units go, these systems are pretty diverse, and if you’re on the market for one you’ve likely been welcomed by an overwhelming load of information.
We can help you figure things out.
Here’s a short buying guide to picking the best central air conditioning system for your home.
You have many factors to consider when you’re trying to buy an air conditioner for your home to ensure your system does a good job and cools your home, but it’s also cost and energy-efficient.
And the biggest thing to consider is the size of your home. If, for instance, you are living in a small apartment, then going for a big central AC may be unnecessary – ductless systems could offer you all the cooling capacity you need. So, window air conditioners or even split system air conditioners would be a better option.
Central ACs are best for big spaces that require a lot of power for their heating and cooling needs since they also have integrated heat pumps.
SEER ratings tell you how energy-efficient the air conditioner is. It stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio and can tell you a lot about how much power your system will need to provide the temperatures you want. It’s a star rating based on the number of kilowatts per year that the unit consumers, and the higher the star rating, the more energy-efficient the system.
You want to pay attention to this rating for two reasons. One, you likely don’t want to spend a fortune on electricity bills just to keep your home cooled or warm. And the second has to do with reducing your home’s carbon footprint!
HVAC contractors are the ones who’ll help you with the installations and maintenance of your unit. Many homeowners give a lot of thought to air conditioner brands when looking for a new system, but the people who will install and help with any repairs provide an essential service to the lifecycle of the AC – in fact, it’s one of the main issues to focus on accounting to Consumer Reports’ guide on buying an AC.
You see, AC brands like Mitsubishi Electric or American Standard are high-quality units, but they have to be installed and maintained by a contractor who knows the particularities of each system.
