Buying an air conditioning unit is a necessary purchase if you want to survive an Indiana summer! But while a new A/C can bring a lot of relief, choosing the right A/C for your home is a big decision! At Naughton Mechanical, LLC, our team can help you navigate your options and think about what to consider when selecting an air conditioning system. Here are a few factors that we think are important—
Energy is expensive, which is one reason that you don’t want to waste it. The other reason is that it’s a very valuable resource, and conserving energy to the extent possible is what’s best for the planet. As such, when you’re choosing an air conditioning system for your home or business, thinking about energy-efficiency ratings is important. While air conditioners now have a standard efficiency that they are required to meet, some are more efficient than others.
Are you trying to cool a small 1,200-square-foot home, or a large commercial space? How much cooling capacity you need will greatly impact the air conditioning model that you purchase. Air conditioners are measured in tons and their cooling capacity, or how quickly they can generate cool air, is measured in BTUs (British Thermal Units). Usually, one ton (unit size) can cool about 400 square feet, so a 1,600-square-foot home would require a four-ton unit. Talk to a professional if you have more questions.
Finally, your budget will surely play a role in the type and model of system that you purchase. In addition to considering the cost of the model itself, make sure you get quotes for installation costs, which can greatly impact your overall costs! At Naughton Mechanical, LLC, we can help you to understand total costs and will provide you with a free estimate upfront so there are no surprises!
