Although choosing a new AC system is exciting, it’s an important decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. After all, we rely on our ACs to keep us cool, comfortable, and protected from the intense summer heat. At GVEC Home, we recommend considering the following five factors to help with choosing an AC that’s right for your home.

1. Energy Efficiency: Making the Most of Every Cooling Cycle

Energy-efficient cooling systems consume less electricity without sacrificing performance or cooling capacity. This translates directly into savings on your energy bill. When shopping for your next unit, remember: The higher the SEER rating, the more energy efficient the system.

2. Size Matters: Finding that Just-Right Fit

Your AC should be the right fit for your home. Square footage, insulation, and the size and number of windows are all important factors when determining the size of the system you need. If a cooling system is too large or small, it could operate inefficiently and raise your energy bills.

3. Price Tag: Getting the Most for Your HVAC Dollars

Cost, of course, is one of the biggest factors in determining which HVAC system to choose for your home. Many cooling companies offer financing options that allow you to pay for the system with incremental installments, provided you have good credit. Choosing a reputable dealer with flexible financing options will help significantly increase the quality of system you can afford for your home and family.

It’s also important to factor in your savings in energy costs when making a final buying decision. Purchasing the most energy efficient model possible can save you significantly over the life of the unit. Although cutting-edge, high-efficiency models may cost more up front, they’ll help make up for it over time through reduced electricity bills.

4. Warranties: Dependability for the Long Haul

Cooling system warranties can vary substantially from one manufacturer to another, so be sure to read all the fine print before making your purchase. Some warranties will cover most of the unit for years to come, while others may be more restrictive or only cover certain components.

5. Installation: Working with the Right AC Company

Installation is just as important as the quality of the AC itself. Find a company with a positive track record of customer service. Review the company’s website and look for things like NATE-certified technicians, financing options and the quality of brands it carries. These are all indicators of how reliable the company is and if it’s the right fit for the job.
