Things to consider when purchasing an AC
There are many important factors to consider when buying an air conditioner for your home.
The size of your existing furnace is just as important as the size of your house. The existing furnace must be inspected to ensure that it can accommodate an air conditioning unit.
Do you have room on your electrical panel? If not you will need to hire an electrician or we can recommend one for you.
Is your basement finished? Where would the unit go outside in comparison to the mechanical room?
There are also many choices when selecting your model. All units have a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, SEER. The higher the number is the more efficient it is and consequently quieter. The SEER rating is a huge consideration for most homeowners. Learn more about SEER ratings when air conditioning your home.
