4 Things to Expect When Replacing Your Air Conditioner

You might have noticed the efficiency of your air conditioner has deteriorated with time. Frequent repairs and humidity changes indicate that you need a new AC system. Here are several things to expect when replacing the air conditioner in your Mansfield, TX, home.

Energy Efficiency

You might want to select an AC system that has low power consumption. You need to look for an AC unit with an energy-saving setting. The setting turns off the compressor and fan once your home has cooled off. Today’s most advanced air conditioners feature a variable-speed compressor, which provides precise cooling power. Needless to say, this helps to save energy and money.

Size of Home

You need to calculate your floor space in square footage. Add that of the hallways, too. Normally, it takes 25 British Thermal Units (BTUs) to cool 1 square foot of space.

Central air conditioning may be more efficient in homes larger than 1000 square feet. If your home is smaller, you might want to consider installing a ductless system.

Ductwork

An AC system sucks in air, cools it and distributes it back into your home through ducts. Poorly designed output ducts distort the equilibrium of the air pressure and cooling system. Therefore, the system’s efficiency decreases. You can reduce installation costs by investing in an AC system that doesn’t need ductwork. An example is a ductless mini-split.

AC Unit Size

Finally, enough emphasis cannot be put on the importance of choosing a correctly sized air conditioner. A small unit might not regulate the temperature of a large area. Conversely, wearing out fast and inefficiency are some problems associated with an oversized unit.

To determine the most appropriate size for your home, it’s important to hire trained professionals. An improper AC installation can cause serious problems.
