Tips on How to Purchase the Perfect Air Conditioning Unit

There are many different factors that are important to consider when choosing an air conditioning unit for a home In Mesa, Arizona. There are also numerous types of air conditioning units to consider. There are window units, HVAC systems, and portable units to consider. The size of the room or home can be the most important factor to keep in mind when choosing an air conditioning unit. Other factors to consider when purchasing an air conditioning unit can include the following:

  • Number of windows that are located in the area.
  • The exposure of the room.
  • Quality of the room’s insulation

Purchasing the Perfect AC Unit

Air conditioning units are measured in British Thermal Units, which are often referred to as BTUs. Energy efficiency ratio measures the cooling efficiency of a model per hour in watts. It is best to get the smallest BTU rating that will suit the size of the room and the highest EER rating. Energy Star models are often the best systems to choose because they have great efficiency ratings and can help lower heating and cooling bills. It is recommended that consumers purchase air conditioning units and HVAC systems during the off season to save more money. These systems and units are in high demand during the summer.

2013 Tax Credit for New AC Unit Purchases

There is currently a tax credit offered for mesa homeowners that purchase Energy Star HVAC systems during the 2013 tax year. This credit can help homeowners save as much as five hundred dollars on their taxes. Some HVAC Energy Star purchases made during 2012 may even be eligible for this federal tax credit currently being offered. This tax credit only applies to Energy Star HVAC systems.

Thinking of Replacing Your A/C Unit?  Why Now Is Better Than the Middle of Summer…

New Air Conditioning

That old Phoenix Air Conditioning Unit was not doing so well by Seasons end last year, your technician had advised you to be looking into a new unit, you have added on to your home and need a bigger unit, or, worse yet, you may know your Air Conditioner does not work right now and will need to be replaced for your summer comfort.  Whatever the cause, there are many reasons to consider choosing to have the replacement done now rather than later on in the midst of our extreme summer heat here in the Valley.

 

If you even think you may need a new Air Conditioning unit this year, seriously consider calling a technician now.  Right now, their schedules are not quite as full, they will be able to come see you at your convenience rather than when they can fit you in, with much less wait time than you will experience during peak summer months .  A typical appointment can be two days or more in the midst summer with most companies, but with a quality air conditioning contractor they will be able to respond quickly. Air Care Cooling & Heating has some of the fastest response times in Phoenix Arizona.  Air Care responds fast because we know when you call it means you need a technician now.  Even if a technician can be there within a few hours, the removal and installation can be accomplished rather quickly but it’s still best not to be in that situation.  An assessment can be made and a recommendation then begins the wait, in the heaviest heat of our hot Arizona desert summers.

 

Phoenix Air Conditioning installation can be tricky in the summer if you have a special application. Availability of a variety of models and sizes are greater now than they will be as summer progressively gets closer.  Air Conditioning suppliers are not keeping as large of an on hand inventory as they used to.  Often times an AC order needs to be placed for units to match specific needs.  Then you have to allow for delivery time as well as HVAC installation time.  Of course if you are in an emergency situation in the heat of the summer a unit can be installed, even If it is not best suited to your needs, however, this can lead you right back to where you started, needing a new unit, only now, you are out hundreds and possibly thousands of dollars.

 

Prices also tend to go up during the summer months for services, technicians and for Air Conditioning units themselves.  By planning now, and avoiding repeated  air conditioning repairs, you can save a bundle and pay less for the exact same services that can cost you more later in the sweltering hot summer months ahead.

 

The very best and most important reason for scheduling your Air Conditioning unit replacement now is because right now you will not miss, or even notice while your old unit is being removed, the best suited model is ordered, delivered and then the new unit is installed, ready to keep you and your household comfortable all throughout the extreme summer months. In the Heat of the summer, the longer your Air Conditioning Unit is not cooling your home, the more damage can be done to other objects in your home and cause losses greater than you ever imagined from our intense summer heat.

 

Plan now, make that appointment to get your unit replaced and protect your home, your health, your family, and your pets.  Save money and relax, remember, there is no price for peace of mind, but you can buy it now with a little prior planning and stay cool in the comfort of your home unaware of the sweltering heat outside.  Make a appointment today.
