Factors To Consider When Choosing an AC System

Are you ready to keep your home cool this summer? Without an effective air conditioner in your home, that goal may be a little harder to achieve. But thankfully you are already in the process of getting your air conditioning installation in Kinston, NC. Once you get a new AC system installed in your house by a trained professional you’ll be able to rely on it to keep things cool on comfortable on even the hottest of days.

Perhaps you are still stuck on which AC system to install, though. This is one of the many things that our team is happy to help with. Read on to learn more about some of the factors you’ll need to consider when choosing an air conditioner for your home.

Do you want zone control options?

Zone control systems and ductless systems offer you the ability to cool certain parts of your home rather than trying to cool the entire space at once. This can help address areas that are harder or easier to cool than others. It can also help you save energy too.

How large of a space are you looking to cool?

Larger homes will of course need more powerful AC systems. While both heat pumps and central air conditioners are great at providing effective and powerful comfort to your home, you will need to make sure that the one you select is able to be sized to cool your specific space.

What SEER or EER rating do you need?

Whether you are installing a new AC or replacing an old one, you will want to make sure that your system is as efficient as possible. However, you may not always need the highest SEER or EER rating. The desired rating will be dependent on the climate you are in and the space needing to be cooled. Getting a system with the highest SEER rating may not be necessary and may end up costing you more rather than helping you save.

Are you trying to keep cool without ductwork?

Last but not least, make sure to think about the use (or lack of use) of your ductwork. If you have ductwork in your home that is in good condition, you can choose a heat pump or central air conditioner. On the other hand, if you don’t have ductwork in your house, it is a good idea to consider a ductless air conditioner as this system is far more effective and efficient than a window AC unit.

Are you looking for comfort year-round?

This may seem like a strange question but it is highly important to consider. This is because if you install a heat pump or ductless heat pump, you can enjoy a system that cools in the summer and heats the home in the winter. This is good to know if you are in need of a reliable heating system–you can solve all of your comfort problems at once.

Whether you know exactly which kind of AC you want in your home or you are still unsure, you can rely on our technicians to get you set up with the best system to meet your needs.
