Figuring Out the Best AC for Your Home

You wouldn’t want to pay a large chunk of money for a system that never met your home’s needs. You work hard to earn those funds—you want to make sure they’re put to good use. That’s why it is good not to rush into getting an air conditioner installation in Milwaukee, WI. Getting the wrong system, or even having the right system installed incorrectly, can leave you without the comfort you need and out a lot of money.

We want to make sure you get your next air conditioner started right. We can do this by providing you with expert installation and helping you choose the best system for your home.

3 Factors to Consider When Selecting a New Air Conditioner

If you are trying to get a new air conditioner installed in your home, you’ll want to get things going soon. Here are some factors to consider when selecting a new system. Once you know what you need, come to us to get the installation figured out.

1. The condition of your ductwork

Ductwork is a highly important factor to consider when choosing an air conditioner. If you have ductwork in good condition, you can choose any kind of ducted system you might want to cool your home.

If your ductwork is in poor condition and you’re ready to stop using a ducted system altogether, it may be a good idea to consider a ductless mini split. These systems deliver home comfort without the need for ductwork, operating instead via multiple air handlers installed throughout the house. These systems are ideal for homes that can’t accommodate ductwork.

2. What size AC you may need

Sizing is something that you need to consider but not something you should try to tackle without a professional. When we are discussing sizing, we want you to consider the SEER and EER ratings for your next air conditioner. You want one that performs efficiently and effectively for your home throughout the summer on both the average hot day and through those sweltering heat waves. Look for good SEER and EER ratings that fit what you need to keep your home comfortable.

3. Whether or not you need a heater as well

We know that keeping your home warm is the last thing you’re thinking about right now. However, considering this idea now can save you a lot of time and trouble later on.

If you need a heater along with an air conditioner for your house, you may want to know that there is one kind of system that can serve both purposes: a heat pump mini split. Coming in both ducted and ductless forms, this system can keep your home cool this summer and warm in winter.

Whenever you need a new air conditioner or other comfort systems in your house, let our experts help assess your home’s needs and install it correctly.

Whatever the kind of air conditioning system you are looking for, you can count on us to get it installed properly. Contact Capital Heating & Cooling to schedule your system installation.
