He needs to take into consideration the number of windows, levels of insulation and occupancy before making a recommendation
My current air conditioner is nearly twenty years old, and it’s definitely wearing out. I’ve noticed a decrease in performance over the last couple of years. The air conditioner now makes a lot more noise and runs for much longer cycles. It’s having some trouble keeping up on especially hot days and my monthly energy bills are climbing steadily higher. Just recently, the air from the vents has begun to have a musty smell. Although I’ve been conscientious about scheduling annual, professional maintenance for the cooling unit, I know it’s at the end of its lifespan. It’s time for me to replace it. I’d rather not wait until the air conditioner suddenly quits in the middle of July to tackle this project. I have been researching the different manufacturers and models of central cooling systems on the current market, hoping to take advantage of maximum SEER, dehumidification capacity, air filtration and lower sound levels. Modern air conditioners now feature variable speed compressors and wifi connectivity. However, I know that the quality of installation is equally as important as the make and model of the equipment. If the HVAC contractor doesn’t properly size the unit, I’ll end up paying higher energy bills and living with insufficient comfort. It’s possible the new air conditioner will frequently malfunction and not last as long. I need a trustworthy HVAC contractor who will take the time to accurately calculate the heat gain/loss of my home. He needs to take into consideration the number of windows, levels of insulation and occupancy before making a recommendation. I need to be sure he’ll effectively link the ductwork to the new system and complete an airtight seal. I’ve been reading customer reviews and looking for an HVAC contractor who guarantees his work.
