What To Consider When Looking For A New A/C

tips to buy a new air conditioner

If you are ready to ditch your old A/C unit and you are thinking about upgrading, there are many things you should consider. The air conditioner you use has a lot to do with the space and size of the house you are trying to cool. If you are ready to beat the heat with an efficient, new system and have been searching high and low for the right option, here are a few tips on finding the perfect A/C!

Control Availability

If you’d like to have a programmable thermostat or one with digital controls, be sure to inquire about the features of your unit before settling. Many systems include Trane Home Intelligence, which can provide you with simple remote access to multiple home systems— lights, locks, thermostats, cameras, small appliances—online from your smartphone or computer.

Energy Usage

Many A/C units, like our Trane XL17i, has an amazing SEER2 rating of up to 17.2. Check the SEER rating on your system with a sales professional to gauge a system's energy efficiency before deciding.

Dual Duty

If you aren’t aware, many A/C units are great at doing more than just cooling the air. A new, efficient system can also be paired with any of our clean air products, including our electronic air filters, which can remove airborne allergens floating around your home.


Be sure the size of your system is effectively proportionate with the size of the room it is occupying. If you are unaware of the suitability of your unit for a particular part of your home ask a service professional to assist you during a free in-home estimate.
