Our customers constantly have questions about their air conditioner. Whether we’re installing a new ductless air conditioner or performing maintenance on a central air conditioner our customer have asked lot of questions over the years. While we’ve answered lots of them in person here are a few of the less common questions we get that might be useful.
Q: What’s Variable Speed Mean?
A: Variable speed is referring to the blower motor on your air conditioner. Variable speed blower motors are designed to provide enhanced comfort throughout your home with reduced air velocity and noise. When this type of blower turns on it operates at a low-speed, which makes less noise and allows the compressor and coil to get warmed up prior to forcing large amounts of air through the units or system.
Q: What Size Air Conditioner Should I Install?
A: So, it’s finally time to replace your old air conditioner. While considering a new unit can be exciting it’s important to take a few things into consideration first. While there are similar models available by different manufacturers you must first calculate the heat-load of your home. This calculation provides you with the proper size of unit for your needs, the size of your home, it’s layout, and a few other variables. The best way to find out what size unit is best for your home is to contact a reputable and professional HVAC technician from a company like Air Tech Toronto. They have the knowledge and experience to properly evaluate your home and provide you with recommendations. Aside from that we always recommend installing high-efficiency units that will save you money on your energy bills in the long-term.
Q: What Is A SEER Rating?
A: SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. This is a measurement of the efficiency of an air conditioner. The higher the SEER Rating is the more efficient a unit is and the less it will cost you to operate. Most brands have a number of units with great SEER ratings and highlight them so they’re easy to find and understand. A Air Tech Toronto technician can assist you in selecting a unit within your price range that has a great SEER rating.
