PHOENIX, April 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Homeowners should start by doing extensive research. There are many factors to consider when shopping for a new HVAC system. Older homes may have different heating and cooling needs than newer homes. It is important by buy the correct sized HVAC system. A system which is too small will be inadequate in terms of meeting heating and cooling. A system which is too large will be wasteful. HVAC installers can perform a load assessment on the home to determine what sized HVAC unit is required.
Energy efficiency is an important consideration. The efficiency of an air conditioner is measured by its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). As technology improves the minimum required SEER rating rises. Currently, a SEER rating of 13 is the minimum.
Homeowners may have to make a decision balancing upfront cost and energy efficiency. The higher the SEER rating of the unit, the more expensive it is going to be. Many utility companies provide rebates to homes with an air conditioning unit rated about 14.5 SEER.
