Upgrading Your Fairfield, OH Air Conditioning System

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

Is your AC no longer operating as it once did? Do you have trouble keeping your home cool during the hotter months of the year? If you’re considering upgrading your Fairfield, OH air conditioning system, spring is a great time to do so. Not only do you eliminate the risk of a major breakdown when the heat and humidity are at their highest levels, but you also ensure that your AC will operate at a high level of energy efficiency this summer. Because it’s one of the major energy costs during the summer, your AC needs special attention.

Let’s take a look at some things to consider:

  • SEER rating: You may have already come across the acronym SEER, which stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. It’s a national standard that seeks to estimate the ratio between electrical energy input and cooling output. All air conditioning units are given one when they are manufactured and it’s a fairly good indicator of how efficiently your air conditioning system will be. The higher the number the better the efficiency.
  • Ducts or no ducts? Upgrading your air conditioner is an opportunity to consider moving to a ductless mini split system. These systems do not use ducts to distribute cool air throughout your home; rather, multiple indoor air handlers are installed directly in your living space, typically high on a wall, or recessed in the ceiling. They are highly efficiency because of their design, and the fact that ducts can account for up to 30% of energy loss.
  • Heat pump: If you previously had a central air, consider a heat pump. They operate according to the same refrigerant cycle as an air conditioner, but they can also heat your home in the winter. They offer year-round comfort and are highly energy-efficient. They can also be combined with furnaces.
