Which Air Conditioner Works Best for You?
There are many different air conditioning systems available these days that are best suited for your environment. Because Georgia has such a diverse range of temperatures from its mountains to its coastal areas, when it comes to installing an air conditioner in your home, one size does not fit all. When you are shopping around for home air conditioning service, it pays to do your homework. Hopefully, you have a good relationship established with a local HVAC company that is up to date on all the latest technology and systems available. If not, then with a little research, a good company is easy to find.
First of all, you want to make sure the company has been established for a number of years and that they can install and perform air conditioning service and maintenance when you need it. Are they licensed, insured, and do they have good reviews on their website and on the Internet. Do they offer installation and AC repair on different units such as gas, electric, oil, hybrids, etc.
Do they offer Energy Star rated systems that are more energy efficient and will save you money over time. Be sure to ask about the SEER rating (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio): The higher the SEER ratio, the more efficient the unit. Depending on the type system you are looking to have installed, make sure the AC company can provide air conditioner service on the unit you have installed. You want to have a one-stop-shop where you can rely on your local home air conditioning service company to do it all.
Arrange to have an owner of an AC repair company such as Phil Montgomery with Atlanta Heating and Air Conditioning Services to sit down with you and discuss which system will work best in your particular environment. Have them go over all the options such as installing central heating and air, ductless and split systems, heat pumps, geothermal systems, hybrid systems; as mentioned earlier, one size does not fit all when it comes to home air conditioning in Atlanta, Ga.
If you have recently had a new addition such as an in-home office, garage, or spare bedroom added to your home, a ductless system might be best for the new room. It can save you money on AC costs and be used only as needed. If you are looking for greener methods of heating and cooling your home, a heat pump or geothermal system is the way to go. These units will save you money, and they are also more conducive to the environment. Many people think that geothermal HVAC is new, but it has actually been around for more than 60 years.
If you are not sure where to start, you can always call an established company like Atlanta Heating and Air Conditioning Services. They have been providing home air conditioning services in Atlanta for over 40 years and are glad to reach out to you from anywhere in the metro area from Douglasville, Austell, Marietta, Woodstock, Alpharetta, Roswell, Dunwoody and more.
