The Advantages of a Properly Sized Unit

If you install an air conditioner that is too small for your home or business, it is going to run constantly, creating a risk for overheating and excessive wear on your unit. On the other hand, if you purchase a unit that is too large, it can lead to uneven cooling, while failing to keep your interior environment comfortable enough to enjoy. When you install a properly sized unit, your unit will:

  • Run more quietly
  • Operate more cost effectively
  • Provide even cooling

If you need assistance choosing a unit that is properly sized, our technicians can help you with that task.

Air Conditioning System Refrigerant Types

Eventually most air conditioning systems require maintenance or repairs. Typically, arranging for annual maintenance on your AC system leads to repairs that are less frequent as well as less expensive. One of the issues that cooling specialists need to address for homeowners is the need to recharge the unit’s refrigerant.

Older AC units, typically manufactured before 2010, use R-22, a refrigerant that is being completely phased out. While it is as energy-efficient as the newer refrigerant R410-A, R-22 is not environmentally friendly. It contains chlorine, which is harmful to the ozone layer. Our cooling specialists can modify your existing air conditioning system so that it can operate on R410-A or they can replace it with a new heat pump or air conditioner, depending on what you currently have installed.

The Benefits of a Well-Designed AC Unit

Many of today’s AC units feature 2-stage compressors that deliver quality performance as they cool your home. A 2-stage compressor makes it possible for your AC system to cool your home as comfortable during mild temperatures as it does during the hotter days of the year. Through this type of dual capacity, your home or commercial business receives a comfortable living/working environment without feeling overly cold or warm no matter what the outside temperature is.

Energy Efficiency Ratings and Why They Are Important for You

energy-efficiencyEver since the Federal Government made it mandatory for manufacturers of air conditioning systems to include the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) on the labels of their units, this number has been readily available to consumers as well as to cooling specialists. Why is this number important?

The SEER tells you how well your cooling unit is going to operate. SEERs between 20 and 23 indicate exceptional energy efficiency and operational integrity, while SEERs ranging between 15 and 18 are used to identify units providing good performance and energy efficiency. Since 13 is the lowest acceptable SEER (per the government’s mandate), units with a SEER or 13 or 14 provide the minimal allowable performance and energy efficiency.

The EER or Energy Efficiency Rating provides an indication of how well the unit is going to cool your indoor environment. The higher the number for the EER is, the better its cooling capacity is.
