AC Installation: Choosing the Right Product

With this summer hitting record highs, many of you might be considering a new AC installation. But before you whip out that credit card, you need to consider what kind of product you want to purchase for your home—a new air conditioner is a big investment! Here are some ideas to keep in mind when selecting a new air conditioning system for installation.

Energy Efficiency – Energy efficient air conditioning systems are one of the best investments you can make in your home.  Air conditioners today have higher efficiency to reduce energy use. In fact, all air conditioners manufactured in the United States have a minimum SEER (season energy efficiency ratio) of 13. For even greater energy efficiency, look into ENERGY STAR qualified air conditioners, which are always 14 SEER or higher, in addition to other great environmentally friendly attributes. 

Although high efficiency ACs may require a bigger investment initially, over time they will save you money and reduce your carbon impact because when you reduce your energy use, you reduce your monthly utility bills! At Arctic Air Conditioning, we support the environment, which is why we install energy-friendly products. When you select us for your AC installation services, you can be assured a product and service that is not only reliable, but energy efficient as well!

Size – You might initially think that the bigger the air conditioning system, the cooler your house will be, but this is not true! Ideally, you want a system that is proportional to the needs of your home. Consider the ducts in an air conditioning system, for instance. If the air conditioning system is too big for the ducts, and push out too much cool air, this will overloads the vents in your home. On the other hand, if the system is too small, there won’t be nearly enough air pressure to facilitate the movement of cool air.  That’s why it’s incredibly important to have an HVAC expert help you properly size an air conditioner for your home—they’ll be able to take duct size, square footage and more into account when matching you with the best ACs for you.

Windows – We have many clients who come to us complaining no matter how low they set the temperature on their thermostat, their house never seems cool enough. Usually, we notice that these homes have more and/or larger windows than other homes.

In terms of cooling (and even heating), the more windows a home has, the more difficult it ican be to cool the home efficiently. While studs, drywall and concrete all serve as great insulators, glass windows actually release cool air at a much faster and thus less efficient rate.

However, having a lot of windows doesn’t have to stop you from keeping your home comfortable—the air conditioning professionals at Arctic Air Conditioning can help you minimize energy loss and maximize the cooling potential of your AC.

Ductwork – We mentioned earlier that the size of your air conditioning unit is important. But so are the ducts! The ducts are what carry cool air to and from your unit, through your house and to the vents where the cool air is dispersed. Ductwork is just as important as the size of your air conditioning system because they’re responsible for carrying the energy your system generates throughout your house. When you’re ready for a new AC installation, have an HVAC technician inspect your home and ductwork to ensure the size and quality of your ducts.

Choosing an air conditioner is never an easy task—not only is it a large investment for your home, but there are numerous factors to consider. If you’re ready for a new AC installation in Middlesex, Ocean or Monmouth County, NJ, contact Arctic Air Conditioning today! Not only can we help you select the perfect air conditioner, we can install it too!
