With the summer heat here to stay, you may be relying on indoor air conditioning to keep you cool. A central air conditioner has a great return on investment and will enhance your overall quality of life in your home. Because of this, deciding what type of central air conditioner to buy should not be a decision that is taken lightly.
Take these considerations into account when choosing your new central air conditioner:
While air conditioners can do wonders for the air quality in your home, you want to make sure that you are choosing an air conditioner that operates with a high degree of energy efficiency. Air conditioners that are not energy efficient not only have a negative impact on the environment, but they will also cost you more in utility bills each month. The Energy Star qualification system is a great universal indicator to use when wondering if an air conditioning unit is environmentally efficient.
Size & Sound Suitability
Size and sound are two important factors to consider when choosing an air conditioner. When selecting a size, you should consider the size of the space in your home you want to be cool in relation to your insulation, windows and doors.
Consequences of choosing a unit that is not the right size include inadequate reduction of humidity in the air, or the inability to cool the space quickly (or at all).
As for sound, the noisy air conditioners of the past are long gone. Newer models of air conditioners are much quieter. A quiet air conditioner is ideal because the unit causes less of a disruption to your daily life, especially at night when you’re trying to sleep.

Ensure You’re Covered Under Warranty
When purchasing an air conditioner, look for a unit that has a long warranty. Work with a professional to decipher the fine print of the warranty so that you understand what you are entitled to in terms of maintenance and repair so that you can make the most informed decision.
Professional Air Conditioner Installation
Air conditioners need to be installed professionally by a highly skilled and qualified contractor. The last thing you want is for your new air conditioner to be installed incorrectly and cause you problems. Work with a highly qualified HVAC technician who you trust and can form a relationship with for future maintenance and repair.
