What Makes One AC Unit Better than Another?

Choosing to replace an AC unit is not a decision to be taken lightly, especially in these sweltering Nevada summers. Your choice will impact your energy bills for years and will affect comfort levels for you and your family.
While some brands and units are better than others, the best AC is the AC that’s right for you. Let’s discuss a few of the most important aspects to consider when choosing an air conditioner.
What Do High-Quality AC Units Have in Common?
The best air conditioners are efficient. They use the least amount of energy while providing steady, reliable cooling performance year after year. A good system runs quietly, is long lasting, and requires little maintenance.
Choosing an AC Unit in the Right Size?
Selecting an AC unit that’s too small for the space you want to cool is a mistake, and installing an AC that’s too large will turn on and off, or cycle, more often than it should- driving up your energy costs and putting your compressor under needless strain.
An experienced HVAC technician can help you to select an optimal size by taking a careful survey of the cooling requirements of your home. Important factors include floor space, window exposure, insulation type, the direction and orientation of your home, tree shade, and the heat-generating appliances you own.
Which Air Conditioners Are the Most Energy Efficient?
Like auto manufacturers, AC units are rated according to energy efficiency. This rating is called Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, (SEER). Higher SEER ratings indicate better efficiency.
Are Some ACs Better than Others?
The heart of any AC is its compressor unit. On hot days the compressor works hard. Here at The Cooling Company, we specialize in installing Lennox brand AC units. Why Lennox? Here in the Las Vegas heat, only the best air conditioning units will make the grade. We’ve found that Lennox AC units offer the best manufacturing standards and efficiency for surviving our long, hot Nevada summers with minimal upkeep and repair. Lennox compressors are sturdy, powerful and can last for decades while retaining a high SEER rating.
The Lennox company is based in Dallas Texas, and they manufacture the majority of their products in Iowa. This means replacement parts and new units are easy to obtain with minimal shipping costs.
Service Is Everything!
Even the best AC unit isn’t going to do much good if you can’t find parts or service when the inevitable happens. Every air conditioner will eventually need some attention from a qualified professional. That’s why here at The Cooling Company, we’ve geared our business to keep your AC unit in business.
