An air conditioning buying guide

You may have been dreading this moment for the last few years, hoping your air conditioning would make it through just one more summer. Alas the time has come and it is time to shop for a new air conditioning system. Most people will only have to replace their air conditioning systems once or twice in a lifetime which means consumers often know very little about what to look for or what they really need. TDK is the Sedona AC company that residents in Sedona and the Verde Valley have trusted with their air conditioning needs for years. We are happy to help answer your questions and find you a system that is perfect for your unique needs. To get you started, here are a few of the main things to consider.

SEER:

SEER rates the energy efficiency of a unit and determines how much of your money it will take to run your unit. SEER calculations are based on several unique elements and so there is no standard scale to go by. A technician can help you determine the SEER of various systems and the long-term savings you can expect from each system.

Single-stage vs. Multiple-stage:

Most air conditioning systems are either on or they are off. Air conditioning systems turn on when the temperature in the room is warmer than the temperature that the thermostat is set at. They run at full capacity until the room reaches the desired level. Most homes have a single-stage unit. However multiple-stage units are also available. They can run at different capacity levels which can be more efficient and can help better reduce the humidity levels in a room.

Appropriate sizing

There are different systems available for different sized homes. The sizing doesn’t refer to the actual size of the unit, but rather the amount of space it is able to cool. A unit that is too small won’t be able to cool your home while one that is too large will not cool the home efficiently. The size of your unit involves more than just the square footage of your home, so refer to a qualified contractor that can assess the many factors that determine what size will be right for you. 

There are many other factors involved in finding the perfect AC system for your home and the best way to get the best unit for the best value is to contact one TDK’s knowledgeable staff members. Contact us today for Sedona’s best AC company.
