How to Pick the Right AC Installation for Your Home , Fort Worth, Texas

When you need to pay for a new AC installation, you should think carefully about finding the right unit for your home. Fortunately, a little extra knowledge about the technical requirements for an AC unit will make your search easier. Below, Total Environmental Cooling & Heating would like to share the following recommendations for picking the right AC installation.

Selecting the Right AC Installation for Your Home

How Much Tonnage Does Your Home Need?

In HVAC contractor terminology, “tonnage” refers to the amount of heat that can be removed from a home in an hour. Air conditioning tonnage is measured in British Thermal Units (“BTU”s). Different AC units generate different amounts of tonnage. The optimal unit for your house will depend heavily on the amount of BTUs it can generate. If your home is large and needs a lot of tonnage to stay cool in the summer, then you will need a bigger unit.

AC InstallationWhat Is an Energy Star® Rating?

For homeowners looking to have a more energy-efficient unit, pay attention to Energy Star ratings. Energy Star is a voluntary program of the Environmental Protection Agency, wherein AC units are qualified if they meet a minimum standard of efficiency. If environmental protection and savings are big concerns for you, look for an Energy Star certified product.

Which AC Unit Should You Choose?

Except for some minor technical specifications or the thermostat, most AC units are similar. In addition to the tonnage and energy star rating, check for the best prices you can find. Beyond price, the real difference is not in which unit you buy, but who you choose to help with your AC installation. A good HVAC contractor will know what your home needs, make the best recommendations based on that knowledge, and be a trustworthy advisor.
