Jupiter Florida is well known for its scorching hot summer days, and while this is the perfect climate for splashing around in the pool, if you don’t have an HVAC unit the days and nights spent inside your home can become unbearable.
There is never a better time to invest in a good quality air conditioner to keep your home cool and prevent any heat-related illnesses that can potentially arise in extremely hot conditions.
But where do you start? Who do you contact? How do you know what unit would best suit your home and its specific needs?
In this article, we will give you some advice on what to look for when choosing the right HVAC unit for your home. After all, this is not a cheap investment, and many factors need to be considered before choosing the product that is right for your specific needs.
Here is a list of important considerations that should be looked at before you decide on what kind of HVAC unit you need for your home.
Air Quality is Important
Make sure that the air-conditioning unit you choose has filters to allow only clean air to enter your home.
The air quality in your home is extremely important and it is best to choose a unit that delivers good air quality by stopping debris, odors, and any other impurities from entering the home.
Efficiency and Energy Saving
Bear in mind that the higher the star rating on an HVAC unit the more energy efficient it will be. This will save you on energy bills in the long run while at the same time provide your home with the maximum cooling capacity.
Choosing The Correct Tonnage
First, let’s understand what tonnage refers to. To keep it simple tonnage refers to the cooling capacity of your HVAC unit. This is important as a unit with the incorrect tonnage can affect the temperature of your home by either being too little or in some cases too much.
A Split or Window Unit?
Deciding on a split or window unit boils down to how much you have budgeted on for your new HVAC unit compared to how much noise you are willing to endure.
It is commonly known that window air conditioners are cheaper than split units but are slightly noisier.
Split units also have the added benefit of distributing air to provide faster cooling and higher overall efficiency.
Fan Speed and Settings
Choosing an air-conditioning unit with a thermostat and multiple fan speeds is the best option if you want to make a sound investment in your HVAC unit. Air-conditioners with thermostats reduce power consumption and an aircon unit with multiple swing settings can also allow you to set the levels of your air conditioning to what is most comfortable for you and your family.
