3 Things to Look for in a New Air Conditioning System

As another summer gears up in Texas, it’s time to assess whether your old AC is ready to handle the heat. If you think that you need to have a new system installed, but feel nervous about trying to make the choice about a replacement, you don’t need to worry. We have some advice here about what you should look for in a new AC.

However, since you will need professional installers to handle the actual work, you should have them involved from the start with selecting the new unit. They will take factors about your home’s cooling needs and your budget to assist you with making the best choice.

Justice Air Conditioning & Heating has an HVAC installation team to make your air conditioning replacement in Rockport, TX as stress-free as possible.

Look for these 3 things in a replacement AC

  1. High SEER: SEER stands for “seasonal energy efficiency rating,” and it measures how well an AC converts electricity into cooling power. The higher the number, the more efficiently it uses energy, and the less you can expect to pay on your utility bills. You should have a central air conditioner with a minimum of 14.5 SEER, the requirement for the ENERGY STAR label.
  2. Humidity control: Through their standard operation, air conditioners remove humidity from the indoor air. However, they are not designed specifically for this purpose and could dry the space too much. If you are concerned about moisture levels and as a result, the overall indoor air quality in your home, look for a unit with option for humidity control.
  3. Long estimated lifespan: Modern ACs have longer service lives than ones made only 10 years past, often in the range of 15–20 years. (Older units usually lasted around 12 years.) If having an energy saving unit with high SEER is important to you, also make sure that the AC will endure long enough so that you can get the maximum savings possible. A more expensive air conditioning system can earn its cost back many times if it works for 20 years before needing a replacement.

We know that trying to select a new AC for your home can seem overwhelming, but we’re here to help you with the process.
