Eventually most homeowners will need to replace the air conditioner they rely on to keep their families cool in the summertime. Choosing an air conditioner isn’t an easy task as there are hundreds of options on the Toronto market, each with its own specific benefits and faults. Finding the right central air conditioner for your home or office is very important as it’s a purchase that will only be made every 15-20 years, so getting it right the first time is imperative to the comfort of your space.
At Air Tech Toronto we typically recommend that our customers install a high-efficiency central air conditioner as there are numerous benefits to them, but here are the main things to consider when buying a new central air conditioner.
Central Air Conditioner Purchasing & Installation
There are a number of things to consider when it comes time to replace your existing central air conditioner. Here is a short list of the most important factors.
Reliability: One of the most frustrating things that can happen is for your air conditioner to break down in the dead heat of summer when you need it most. While inconvenient to the core this can also be dangerous for young babies, seniors, and anyone with a respiratory disease. Your air conditioner not only keeps your home cool but it also filters out the pollens and humidity from the air it circulates through your home, which in turn makes your home a healthier environment. Ensuring that the brand and model of air conditioner you purchase is reliable is one of the most important things to consider.
Energy-Efficiency: As mentioned, regardless of the make or model of air conditioner we always recommend purchasing an energy-efficient model. Energy-efficient models are designed to ensure that reliability and efficiency are the primary aspect to their functioning. Energy-efficient models reduce your carbon footprint and can save you hundreds of dollars on your energy bills each year. Overall, an energy-efficient central air conditioner is a win-win for everyone.
Size: You may think that bigger is better, but when it comes to a central air conditioner it isn’t. If your central air conditioner is too big or too small, it will cost you more to operate it than it should and if it runs too long or short cycles all the time it may not last as long as it should either. An Air Tech Toronto HVAC technician is able to help you determine what size air conditioner is best for your size of your home or office based on your usage needs and the layout of your space.
Cost: The cost of your new central AC will be a deciding factor as to which make and model you purchase. With a sea of options available in Toronto and the GTA a Air Tech Toronto HVAC technician can help you find an appropriately sized, reliable, and energy-efficient model that fits within your budget.
