Air Conditioners are ideal for cooling, when you use a fuel burning furnace to heat your home. Air Conditioners give you cool comfort summer after summer, all while removing humidity from you home. When purchasing an Air Conditioner two important concerns are size and SEER of equipment.
With an efficient system you can lower your energy consumption as well as your power bill. System efficiency is measured in SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). The higher the SEER, the more efficient the Air Conditioner will be.
It is important to have the proper size AC for your home. When an AC is too large for your home, it can lead to humidity issues. Air Conditioners not only cool your home, they also remove humidity out of your home. When an AC is too big it will not run as often as needed, this leads to high humidity. When an Air Conditioner is too small for your home, it will run continuously causing strain on components as it struggles to maintain desired temperature in your home. A system that is too small will also increase your power bill.
