Keep Your Cool With These Tips
When the mid-summer Missouri heat hits your town, the last thing you need (or want) is for your cooling system to tank. Yet, as we all know, things typically break down at the most inconvenient times. If you’re caught in a heat wave this summer and find yourself needing a new air conditioning system, you’re going to have questions.
Here are some insider tips to know before making that big purchase.
Making Good Choices
The time has come. There is no ignoring the fact that you need a replacement cooling system. It’s already July and you simply can’t function in a house that’s making you sweat. So, how do you go about choosing the right AC system for your house?
Here’s a guide:
SEER Rating. One of the first things you should consider is SEER rating. SEER, or seasonal energy efficiency ratio, is a maximum efficiency rating associated with cooling systems. SEER measures how much cooling a system emits for each unit of energy it consumes. In general, the higher the SEER number, the more efficient the system. As of 2015, the government requires SEER ratings to be a minimum of 13 in many states, including Missouri.
When choosing your next system, choose one with a high SEER rating. In the long run, it will help you save money on those energy bills.
Size. Did this one surprise you? Many homeowners are amazed to learn that the size of the system they choose is critical. Think about it though. You wouldn’t expect just any pair of jeans to fit you, right? You have to buy the proper size to feel your best. The same can be said for your replacement air conditioning system. If your system is too big for your home’s square footage, you’ll notice it shutting off and on all day. This is an inefficient way to cool your home and will only increase your monthly energy bills. On the flipside, a unit that is too small won’t operate smoothly and can throw off your energy use, too. If you have questions about the AC sizing, simply call Jerry Kelly for expert help.
