How to Pick the Right Air Conditioner for your Home
Summer is officially here, and if you don’t have an air conditioner or your old one isn’t quite up to beating the heat this summer, (Make sure to check our earlier post to see if you need a new one!), you need to take advantage of the incredible deals offered at Constant Home Comfort in Markham, and get yourself an energy efficient Lennox air conditioner. Constant Home Comfort offers services at competitive prices, across the GTA.
So which air conditioner is the right one for your home? Here are some tips to help you choose.
Pick the right size
Obviously, an air conditioner that’s too small won’t keep your home sufficiently cool. But what many don’t realize is that an oversized system will cycle (turn on and off) more than necessary, wasting expensive energy and possibly putting undue strain on the compressor. So how do you know what size you need to efficiently cool your home? The easiest and most fail-safe way is to talk to a certified HVAC technician. They’ll know what size of air conditioner you’ll need in order to keep your home cool, comfortable, and affordable in the summer. Contact Constant Home Comfort to determine the right air conditioner for you.
Pick an energy efficient air conditioner
No one wants to overpay on their energy bills, but many people don’t realize just how much they can save with energy efficient appliances. An energy efficient air conditioner will not only keep your home nice cool when the weather gets hot; it will also do so at a price that’s not going to break the bank. Plus, with so many rebates offered by the government and manufacturers, making the switch to an energy efficient AC is easier and more affordable than you might think.
Air conditioner manufacturers are required by law to evaluate and rate their equipment according to its energy efficiency. This rating is known in the industry as a SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the equipment. Lennox’s energy efficient air conditioners offer competitive SEER scores at competitive prices.
Pick the right contractor
Make sure your contractor offers recognized name brand air conditioners, such as Lennox, American Standard, or Goodman. Brand names tend to have more replaceable parts that are easier to get a hold of in the event that your air conditioner needs to be repaired. Plus, brand names are more likely to offer some great rebates when you purchase from them.
It’s not just the product you need to be concerned about when picking an HVAC company to install your AC; you also want to ensure the company is reliable and has certified technicians working for them. You don’t want to be boiling in your home, waiting for hours or even days for a contractor to show up for a simple repair. Constant Home Comfort in Markham only hires certified technicians, offers 24/7 emergency services, and offers experienced and dependable expertise at a competitive price. We make sure that your air conditioner is installed properly the first time, and come to your home within 24 hours if problems occur, all at an affordable price.
