- Size: Your AC needs to be match the size of your home. Make sure you find an installer who performs a load calculation of your home so that your AC is just the right size for your home. If it’s too small, then it will simply not be able to cool your home effectively, and may be subject to increased wear and tear because of this overworking. If it’s too large, then it may frequently turn on and off, and you may find yourself overly cold, or having to adjust the temperature constantly.
- Energy efficiency: Make sure you purchase an AC with a high SEER rating. This acronym stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and every AC sold in the US has one. Energy Star requires a SEER of 14.5. The higher the number, the better, although, there are numerous other factors to take into consideration, such as ductwork and insulation.
- Ducts or no ducts? Conventional central air uses a system of ductwork circulate cool air through your home, but new ductless mini split systems don’t use ducts at all. Instead, their sleek indoor air handlers sit high on the walls, or recessed in the ceiling.
- Other considerations: Want a new AC, but don’t have the space in your historical home? A high velocity mini duct system may be just what you need. These highly efficient systems are similar to a conventional system, except that they require much less room for extensive sheet metal ducts within your walls.
