How to Choose a New Air Conditioning System, Chillicothe, Ohio

If you’re buying a new air conditioning system, it’s important to consider all the different options and benefits before making a purchase. The experts at Lenox Heating & Cooling in Londonderry, OH, know how difficult it can be to choose a new unit, so they have compiled a list of points to keep in mind.

What to Look for When Buying a New Air Conditioning System

System Types

There are several different types of air conditioners on the market. Window units are affordable and easy to install, but they’re more useful if you’re only cooling your space during the summer months. Portable units can be moved from room to room, which is a good option if you live in a small space. Built-in units are ideal if you want a permanent system in a room that isn’t linked to your central air network. However, if you’re willing to spend extra money for added convenience, you could upgrade to a full central system.

The cooling capacity of an air conditioning system is measured in BTUs. A unit with a low BTU-level won’t be effective in a large space, while a unit with too many BTUs will be inefficient in a small space. Assessing how many BTUs you need is a complex process. Instead of guessing, you’re better off contacting a furnace and AC specialist. Tell them the size of your home, how many windows and doors you have, and anything you know about the insulation. They’ll recommend the best system for your needs.

Efficiency

When you purchase an air conditioner, remember that the price isn’t the same as the cost. An inexpensive but inefficient unit could result in high utility bills in the long run if it uses too much energy. If you’re trying to save money and go green, ask an expert to recommend a more efficient option that will work for your budget.
