5 Tips on Choosing an Air Conditioning System

Get the Right One for Your Home

 

Air conditioning systems have become almost vital in our times with the changing weather conditions. If you do not have one, you are probably looking to get one installed. And, If you have a system already, you may be in the market to replace or maintain your existing unit. Of course, with the wide range options, this could be a challenging decision. Here are a few pointers to help you along the way to the right system for you home.

Purchasing an air conditioning system is an investment well-worth the cost. Prices will vary according to the size of your home or office and your specific needs. You will receive a good return with cooling and comfort provided by the AC unit. On hot summer days, the cooling system not only removes the heat, but will add a lovely freshness to your rooms.

 

Tips on choosing the right system for your needs

 

Do not allow the varying sizes, models, and features through you for a loop. Check out these tips that will give you an edge in making the right choice in AC systems for your house.

  1. Size

You need to know the size of the space you are looking to cool and purchase an air conditioning unit that can handle the job. If the system is too small for the space, it will never sufficiently cool the space. This will result in the system overworking and lead to damage of the compressor and other parts. Purchasing an over-sized unit will only cost you more money than necessary in the cost of the unit itself. Both scenarios will cost you more money in the long run by increased energy costs and consumption. So, it is important to purchase an appropriately sized air conditioning system that is suitable for your space requirements. Do some research and get help from knowledgeable professionals.

 

  1. Energy Efficiency

Another primary concern should be the energy efficiency of your air conditioning system. You will want to check out the energy efficiency rating, known as the SEER or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. This rating will give you an idea of how efficient the unit is in terms of energy expenditure. The higher the rating the more efficient and better the equipment, which will save you a lot of money on electric bills.

  1. Features

Get to know what features are available in air conditioning systems. Find out what they do, and what their purpose is. That way, you can make a good decision on the best features for your needs. Manufacturers offer devices with many advanced features such as; easy filter removal, sleep timer, energy efficiency, human activity sensing, anti-bacterial filters, and many more.

 

  1. Service and Warranty Period

Warranties and service policies are important to consider. Look for reputable brands with long warranties including a replacement guarantee. You will also want to have the option of extending the warranty period. This will save on maintenance costs if any problems arise.

  1. Budget

Be budget conscious. Looking at air conditioning systems that are out of your price range will not benefit you or your home or office. Buy the best product that fits within your budget. If the unit you truly want is above your financial range, do a little more saving before you purchase. Then, you can get the unit that best fits your requirements.

 

I hope you have found these tips helpful and informative. Good luck in finding the perfect air conditioning system for your home.

Energy Efficiency – What’s Eating Your Energy?

Do you want to save money? Think you’ve tried everything to cut your costs? Well, here are some fabulous tips on Energy Efficiency in your home from Uma Campbell. You are going to love the infographic she has to share!

What’s Eating Your Energy?

 

What uses the most energy in your home – Intro

What’s eating up your energy? No, not your job, lifestyle, kids, etc… literally eating your energy – as in your electric bill? Maybe it’s the refrigerator? Could it be the dishwasher – should you run it less often? Or, the hot water heater – turn it down a little?

A couple of additional degrees of heat when the winter wind howls feels pretty good at the time, but that coziness comes at a cost. Older houses were built when energy like coal and gas was inexpensive, and these dated mechanical systems can really take a bite out of your budget. Older appliances like washers, dryers, and freezers weren’t manufactured to be energy efficienct, or with the size of your carbon footprint in mind. So, maybe it’s time to find those extra energy calories – the ones that are adding up over time to big, bloated energy use. Time to take a look at your “eating” habits, or how you’re consuming energy at your house.

Maybe, the best way to think about it is to think about energy use in the same way you think about the calories you eat. Healthy eaters know how to cut calories by employing small steps that add up over time. You’ve read the recommendations – sparkling water instead of sugary pop, crunchy carrots instead of potato chips. It’s not dieting, exactly, it’s a lifestyle change, because these folks know that extra calories here and there add up over time to big, unwanted weight gain.

Similarly, with just a few practical, cost-cutting steps, you can trim your energy use and boost your energy efficiency just like healthy eaters cut calories and make better “meal” choices. Here are practical, economical ways to cut your energy bill by making your older appliances more efficient. Plus, steps you can take to make your house retain heat in cooler weather and stay cool during the hotter months with just a few adjustments. You will also find new ideas to make your house the most energy-efficient house it can be.

Make your house – whatever its age – more energy effective, and discover where your energy dollars are being wasted.

Embracing a healthy energy style–good for your wallet and good for the planet too.

 

Uma has certainly shared some brilliant tips and ideas to increase the energy efficiency of our homes. What an awesome infographic! I hope you have discovered things that will help you save money.
