How to Choose an Efficient & Reliable Air Conditioning System
Choosing an AC system is an important decision. If you choose a unit that is too small, it will have to work longer and harder to cool your house. This will result in higher energy bills and less efficiency. On the other hand, if you choose a system that is too powerful, it will cool your home quickly and shut off before getting the condensation out of the system. This may leave your home feeling humid, clammy, and warmer than what the thermostat reads. Thus, having a system that is the right size is essential if you want a comfortable home with low energy bills.
When selecting an AC system, you should consider:
- Its size
- Its efficiency
- Its type
- Its placement
In order to select a proper size, our technicians can use a heat-gain calculator. Once we analyze your home’s needs, we can advise you on the best choice in size for an AC unit. We also can discuss the efficiency rating of the system you want. This is calculated using the seasonal energy-efficiency rating (SEER). The higher the SEER rating, the less you will have to pay in energy bills and operating costs.
There are 2 types of standard air conditioning systems. The first one is known as the package system. This combines the condenser with the fan-and-coil system, and the ductwork connects directly to the unit. However, these systems are rare in today’s market. The other type of air conditioning system is known as a split system. The most common type of AC unit, this keeps the condenser on the exterior of the home and the fan-and-coil system on the inside of the home. We can discuss the benefits of each and help you choose a model that will meet your needs.
Finally, you should consider where the AC unit will be located. Condensers, even quiet ones, make some noise. Thus, it is important to avoid installing the system beneath a bedroom or by an office window in your home. Furthermore, air constriction from placing the unit underneath a deck or other barrier can make it less efficient. Our technicians can discuss where the put the system around your home, and can install it where it will cause minimal noise interruption.
The Process of Installing an AC System
If your home already has duct systems in place, our technicians can install a central AC unit. However, existing ducts must be inspected prior to installation. Our Commerce City HVAC technicians can examine the ductwork in your home and determine if any modifications are needed to accommodate the new system. These modifications may include upsizing the furnace blower, replacing older supply registers, and sealing the ducts. This can improve the airflow and indoor air quality in your home.
If your home does not already have a duct system in place, our team can still install an air conditioning unit. We can run ducts through attics to first and second-floor rooms in a timely and efficient process. We are skilled at hiding ductwork behind closets and floor joists while leaving minimal holes in the walls. Once we are done, we will test the system to make sure everything is working properly. You are then free to enjoy the benefits of a high quality air conditioning system in your home.
