Is your Avawam, Kentucky air conditioner about to cash in its chips? The sooner you shop for a replacement, the happier you’ll be with the result. Here are three things to consider before making a purchase:
1. Getting the Best AC Installation Price
If possible, shop for a new AC installation during the cooler months when more air conditioner makes and models are available and the high-quality units are most likely to be on sale. Dealer specials, incentives for purchasing energy-efficient products, and manufacturer’s rebates can reduce installation costs and make the purchase easier on your budget.
2. Choosing a Reliable, Reputable and Trustworthy HVAC Contractor
During the AC installation process, you’ll be relying heavily on your HVAC contractor. It’s essential that you select an HVAC professional who’s experienced, knowledgeable and guarantees their products and services. Half of all new AC systems are improperly installed. The consequences are poor energy efficiency, poor indoor air quality, shorter equipment lifespan, poor airflow, indoor comfort issues and high humidity. Most established contractors offer free consultations. They will suggest products and offer detailed installation quotes.
3. Determining an Accurate Air Conditioner Size
Proper AC sizing is mandatory to achieve maximum indoor comfort and high energy efficiency. An overly-large unit can result in short cycling, high humidity and high electric bills. A good contractor will perform a detailed Manual J load calculation, which will determine the precise cooling requirements for your home and match those requirements to a new unit’s cooling capacity in BTUs. Your home’s cooling load will be determined by many factors, from the size of your home and the number of shade trees on your property to your attic insulation levels and how many appliances you own.
