Tips for Choosing the Best Phoenix Air Conditioning System

Mar 18, 2014

When you live in a hot climate like the Arizona desert, your home’s air conditioning system is absolutely vital for your family's comfort and safety. When your AC unit needs to be replaced, there are various types of Phoenix air conditioning options to choose from, including window units, split units, and central air units. With all of the different types of systems that are available, how do you know which one is right for your home? After selecting whether you want a window, split, or central air unit, it helps to look at the size of the units, and how efficient they are.

Size

The size of the air conditioner systems you are considering may play a big role in which one you end up selecting. If you live in a small home with only a little property, it can be difficult to select a unit that is going to take up a lot of space outside your home. Although extra space may be important to you, you also want a system that is big enough to adequately cool all of the rooms in your house. You should talk with an AC technician about your options before the air conditioner installation takes place.

Efficiency

The truth is, not every air conditioner is as efficient as the next. Some systems will inherently be a little more efficient than others, and this may even be reflected in the price. One way that you can determine the efficiency of a particular system is by looking at its Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, also known as SEER. Efficient systems will have a higher rating. Sometimes systems with a higher SEER are more expensive, but they can save you money over time through the energy that you save each month.

When selecting your Phoenix air conditioning system, it is important to consider the type of system you want, as well as its size, and efficiency. When taken together, these three areas can lead you to a system that efficiently cools the rooms of your home and makes the Arizona heat a little more bearable. Remember that if size is a problem, go with something smaller. If efficiency concerns you more, choose a unit with a higher SEER rating. Call (602) 870-6840 today for AC unit replacement and installation services from the technicians at Donley Service Center.
