Need a new air conditioning system installed? People typically have a lot of questions when looking to replace their existing AC system…Do I really need a new air conditioner?

There are many factors to consider before purchasing a AC system for your home or business:

If the cooling system in your home is more than 15 years old, it may be time to think about a new, efficient air conditioning system. Have you been spending more and more each year on repairs? Is your AC system unreliable? If so, it’s probably time to talk to the experts at Dran’s Heating & Air Conditioning.

If your utility bills are getting more and more expensive every year, it could be that your old air conditioner is struggling. As mechanical systems age, they become less and less efficient, and have a harder time keeping your house cool and comfortable. Contact Dran’s Heating & Air Conditioning for a free consultation.

The size of air conditioning system you need is dependent on the space you’re trying to keep cool. The larger the square footage, the larger AC unit you’ll need. If the existing AC unit in your house is too small, it will need to run constantly, and probably won’t ever cool your home properly. But you also don’t want an air conditioner that is too large for your space, as that can cause its own problems. You want an air conditioning system that is “just right.” Call Dran’s Heating & Air Conditioning – our HVAC pros can tell you exactly the size of air conditioner you need.

When looking for a new AC system, ask about the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating or “SEER.”  A higher SEER rating means a more efficient air conditioning system. Most modern air conditioning systems have a SEER rating of 13 – 21 (compared to older AC systems at around 8 or 9).

These are all measurements used in the HVAC industry to help quantify cooling capacity. One ton of air conditioning can remove 12,000 BTUs (or British Thermal Units) of heat per hour, and the larger your house, the greater tonnage you’ll need to keep cool.

SEER is the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating, and it has to do with efficiency. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficient the air conditioner is.  How much do you need? It depends.

If you’re thinking about things like SEER rating, BTUs and AC tonnage, it may be time to talk to an expert HVAC tech to guide you down the right path. Call the experts at Dran’s Heating & Air Conditioning for a free consultation.

New air conditioning systems are simply more efficient than than older units. They’ll cool your house faster, keep your family comfortable all summer long, and save you money on your utilities. Is a higher SEER Rating worth it? It all depends on what you’re looking for in an AC system. Talk to the professionals at Dran’s Heating & Cooling to learn more.
