Features to Look for in a New Air Conditioning System

Today’s air conditioners are more efficient than ever and they offer great features that make them quieter and easier to operate. Even the most economical systems offer great performance, and here are some of the primary features that you should consider when choosing a new air conditioning system:

  • Two-stage cooling – This feature allows the air conditioner to operate at a less demanding, more efficient state when temperatures are mild, with plenty of power left to ramp up the cooling during hotter weather.
  • Variable-speed blower – A variable-speed blower in the air handler or furnace allows the air conditioner to adjust the fan speed according to demand, allowing for quieter, more efficient operation during mild weather.
  • High-efficiency cooling – Older air conditioners are often less than 14 SEER, while today’s models can be rated from 14 to over 20 SEER, resulting in significant energy savings. A higher-rated model may cost more initially, but it will save money in the long term.
  • Zoned cooling – Some air conditioning systems allow multiple zones of cooling that can be independently controlled to dial in your ideal level of comfort.
  • Smart thermostats – With touch screens, Wi-Fi connectivity, and the ability to be controlled from mobile phone apps, smart thermostats are available for many AC models, providing unparalleled convenience, control, and energy savings.

Our experts at Travis Crawford Heating, Cooling & Plumbing can explain all these features to you and help you select an air conditioning system that is most appropriate for your needs and budget.

AC Install Frequently Asked Questions in Charlotte, NC (FAQS)

For home comfort, having a reliable and efficient air conditioning system is important. Are you a homeowner considering an AC replacement or want to invest in a new air conditioning unit? Are you curious about the technical aspects of AC systems? Here is a comprehensive guide to address most of your concerns and questions regarding AC system installations.

Several factors, such as the age of the unit, efficiency, and performance, may determine when to replace your air conditioner. A regular AC unit has a lifespan of 12 to 15 years. If your system is old, inefficient, or frequently breaks down, you may need to consider a replacement. Upgrading the old air conditioner to a new, energy-efficient one could be more cost-effective and a significant investment in the long run.

You may need to consider an AC system replacement if you notice any of the following signs:

  • Increased Utility Bills

  • AC Blowing Warm Air

  • Insufficient Or Weak Airflow

  • Leaking Unit

  • Unusual Sounds

  • Inconsistent Cooling

If you discover that you are scheduling frequent and costly repairs, investing in a new, reliable, and efficient AC system may be a significant investment.

The optimum time to purchase a new air conditioner is during the off-season. During these times, the demand for AC units is lower, and suppliers may offer attractive discounts and special offers. Nevertheless, if you are purchasing a central air conditioning system that requires the expertise of an HVAC professional, fall or spring might be the best time.

Opting for a well-designed and properly installed air conditioning unit can significantly impact your utility costs. The best AC for your home will depend on its size, the local climate, and your comfort needs. Our NATE-certified technicians can assist you in selecting the appropriate energy-efficient AC unit for your home.

The duration taken to install a new AC system may vary depending on factors like the size of your home, the system’s complexity, the type of installation, and whether ductwork is needed. On average, standard installation of an air conditioning unit may take between 4 hours to 1 day.
