Living in Florida, air conditioning is a necessity. So, when the time comes to replace your air conditioning system, you need to choose the right system for your home, and fast.
Purchasing a new HVAC system for your home may seem daunting, but finding the right system can benefit you for years to come. After all, the right system can help you lower your energy consumption, save money on energy bills, increase the comfort of your home, and can even improve indoor air quality too. But before you can enjoy these benefits, you need to find the perfect system. Here are three things to consider before purchasing a new air conditioning system for your Florida home.
1. The Size of Your Home
Before selecting an HVAC system for your home, you need to take the size of your home into consideration. It’s possible to purchase a unit that is too small or too large, which will result in inefficient cooling and heating, increased energy bills and poor indoor air quality—not to mention, a big waste of your hard-earned money. An HVAC professional can help you find a system that is the perfect size your unique space.
2. The Power of the Unit
A BTU chart is useful in helping determine which size of unit is best for your needs. You can easily find a BTU chart online, which will tell you the right size system to purchase for the space in your home. As always, an HVAC professional can assist you in finding the right system.
3. The SEER Rating
Another important factor to consider is the SEER rating. The SEER rating essentially represents how efficient a unit is. Under current regulations, all units sold today must have a SEER rating of at least 13. However, you can find many models with a SEER rating as high as 23. The higher the SEER, the more energy efficient the unit is. And although an energy efficient system may cost more upfront, the money you’ll save on energy bills can more than make up for the extra cost.
