Whether you are building a new home or your current AC system is getting older, you may be thinking about replacing your existing system with a new one. As soon as you start searching for a new air conditioning system, you may be overwhelmed by all of the options available, and you may wonder which system is right for your home. By focusing on a few points, you can easily find the system that is best for your Florida home.
Check the BTU Rating
The BTU rating describes the amount of power that the air conditioning system has, and this relates to how much space it can cool in an efficient manner. You can initially measure the square footage of your space, measuring only the amount of space that you want the unit to cool. Then, you can use a BTU chart online to determine the BTU rating of the system you need. Purchase a cooling system with the appropriate BTU rating for optimal cooling.
Choose a Higher SEER Rating for Efficiency
In addition, you can compare SEER ratings for the different air conditioning systems available. The SEER rating is related to energy efficiency. Most units sold today will have a SEER rating of 13 at a minimum. A higher rating is more energy efficient, and some units available for sale have a rating as high as 23. Although the models with a higher SEER rating generally have a higher up-front cost, homeowners can recoup this in energy savings.
