There’s no better realization in the year than that of knowing we’re getting closer to summer and further from winter. Spring makes its way through our door and all those cold days start to look distant. We at Amazing Air Inc, are looking forward to hotter mornings just as much as you do. However, along those wonderful beach days come to the unbearable heat this season can bring. To be prepared we advise a check of your Air Conditioner before things get too hot to endure. Whether you already have a ductless unit or if you’re thinking of getting central AC, Air Conditioning repair in Naperville will be in great timing now that Spring is standing at our door.
Although, if among your plans is the idea of buying central AC to make things easier at home, we have 5 tips that will make your life much easier when thinking about what you need or which system suits your house best.
Keep an eye on the budget
How much are you willing to invest in your AC system? Usually going for the cheapest option will give you exactly what you pay for. Thinking ahead and realizing that a good investment now will save you a fortune in the future is the first step. If you want to buy the unit on your own we recommend doing extensive research on the topic and letting the installation only to the professionals. Doing it by yourself, unless you’re experienced, could lead to damage and more expenses in the future.
Yes, size does matter
You don’t have to get a big or a small unit, you have to get the perfect unit. A load calculation should always be made in order to avoid energy loss or a deficit in the cooling of your house. A unit that is too big will cycle on and off repeatedly, reducing the energy efficiency of the unit and wasting electricity; while one that is too small will not be able to cool your house enough when you need it most.
Energy efficiency and maintenance
Your new unit should comply with the SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) and governmental standards. A score of 13 and above is a must. Once you’ve found the right one, you have to consider maintenance costs, as it is recommended to have the system checked at least once a year, and of course, only by professionals. Allowing it to be handled by inexperienced technicians can give the “remedy worse than the disease” saying a whole new meaning.
Going to the pros for advice
Finding the right professional to talk to can make things much easier when making such an investment for your home. You should never go to inexperienced contractors that are only after your money. Comparing quotes, service and benefits can be decisive in the process.
