A Family’s Heart Is In The Home
Today’s best air conditioners use 30% to 50% less energy compared to produce the same amount of cooling as an air conditioner made in the mid 1970’s.
You want your home to be as comfortable as it can be, especially in the hot summer months. Even if your air conditioner is only 10 years old, you could save 20% to 40% of your cooling energy costs by replacing it with a newer, more efficient model. New air conditioners when installed and maintained properly will operate more efficiently than most current systems.
What is efficiency? In brief, an efficiency rating tells you how much of the total energy used is delivered to the home as heat. The higher the efficiency, the better the furnace functions. For example, a furnace that is 80% efficient delivers 80% of the fuel consumed by the house as heat. The rest, 20% or 20 cents on the dollar, goes up the chimney flue. Your heating bill, therefore, depends on the cost of the fuel and the efficiency of the furnace.
Air Conditioners – How Do I Choose The Right One?
We’ll help you with that. Choosing an air conditioner for your home is an important decision. Central air conditioners not only provide indoor comfort but can also dehumidify, and filter your home’s air, making it cleaner and far more comfortable. A central air conditioner distributes conditioned air through a house. There are a number of considerations we can help you with:
- Do you have hot or cold spots in your home?
- Does anyone in the house have allergies?
- Where do you spend most of the time in your home?
- Would you like to save money on your utility bill?
- How long do you plan on living in your home?
These are just some of the questions a qualified York dealer will help you with. We’ll make sure to size your new central air conditioner properly. Sizing is extremely important. Our knowledgeable and trained cooling contractors will make sure to match one of our efficient air conditioners to your needs. Consider that a unit that is too small will lack the ability to give you the comfort you desire. A unit that is too large will end up not only costing more money up front, but more money to operate. An oversized AC will kick out more cooling and will most likely overshoot the thermostat by 2 degrees, making you too cold and costing you more money. Make sure you find the right contractor that will help you make the right choice.
Steps To Choosing The Right System
- Buy the most efficient system you can
- Size your system properly
- Seal your ducts, if you have a ducted system
- Properly maintain your system
