If you’re in the market for a new home cooling system, here are a few tips from a heating and air conditioning pro. If you find yourself having thoughts like, “should I just get the exact same model I had before?” or “does that brand matter?” And, “is a ‘bigger’ unit better?” then you’re in the right spot. Let us break it down for you.
A big part of choosing the new AC unit that’s right for you is understanding what kind of air conditioner you previously had. If it was an integrated heat pump, you might need to replace the whole thing. On the other hand, if it’s a zonal unit mounted in your wall, you can simply replace the one currently causing you problems.
Other items to consider include the fuel source it was running on, and the costs associated with changing your fuel source if you so desire.
Is it necessary to have all components of your system “match”? As in, all are made by the same brand? Well, no. But there is something to be said for the compatibility of single-brand systems, including matching load sizes and ease of integration. There’s also this to consider: if your system components are the same age, and one of them has up and quit on you, the other ones probably aren’t too far behind…
It’s important to understand what the “right” size is for your household. Unfortunately, the equation doesn’t boil down to simple square footage; you’ll need an expert to help you evaluate.
