What To Consider When Looking For A New A/C

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!

  1. 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 Nexia Home Intelligence, which can provide you with simple remote access to multiple home systems— lights, locks, thermostats, cameras, small appliances—online from your smart phone or computer.
     
  2. Energy Usage – Many A/C units, like our Trane XL18i, has an amazing SEER rating of up to 18.00. Check the SEER rating on your system with a sales professional to gage a systems energy efficiency before deciding.
     
  3. 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 a Trane CleanEffects electronic air filter, which can remove over 99% of airborne allergens floating around your home.
     
  4. Size – 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.
