For the homes that we visit more frequently for air conditioning repairs, we have noticed a trend. More often than not these HVAC units are not the highest quality. Now, we understand that HVAC units and the process of heating and cooling your home can be expensive, but this is an instance where quality makes a big difference in the efficiency of your unit. In order to save you from encountering an absurd amount of air conditioning repairs down the road, we have a few tips that will help you select the right unit for your home.
Every HVAC unit will have an SEER rating. Chances are SEER has you stumped, and you’re not entirely sure what that has to do with your decision. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and it determines the amount of power that is saved by your HVAC unit. The higher the rating, the better your savings will be. The lowest rating that we suggest going with is a 13, though the higher will still save you more.
Once you’ve decided on a unit, proper care is the next step. You should have your unit checked up at least once a year. This helps to ensure that all of the pieces are working and that no repairs are needed. It helps to get a professionals outlook on the unit in order to decide if you need any replacement parts or if any changes need to be made to your unit in order for it to work more efficiently.
As with anything, a warranty is an extra security that makes you just a little bit more confident in your purchase. Warranties can cover certain parts of your unit that could ultimately cost hundreds to repair, so take into consideration what warranties are offered with the units you’re looking at and what other types of warranties are covering. Knowing what’s included in your warranty saves you from having to deal with troubles later on.
