Businesswoman with question mark

Buying a new air conditioner for your home is an investment. When it comes to shopping for upgrades at Lindstrom Air Conditioning, we want to make sure you have everything you need to ensure your new investment is a good one.  Here are five questions to ask yourself and your technician when choosing a new air conditioner for your home:

1. What size unit is the best fit for my home?

Bigger doesn’t equal better. Air conditioners run at peakefficiency when they are properly sized by a licensed contractor that performsa heat load calculation. If you install a system that is larger than what yourhome needs, not only will you pay more for the system but your system will alsouse more energy. Oversized AC systems will short cycle not allowing enough runtime to sufficiently lower the humidity level in your home. High humiditylevels can not only cause discomfort but can also lead to air quality issues.Your Lindstrom technician will help you find the perfect fit for you.

2. Is the new system energy efficient?

Air conditioning systems receive a Seasonal EnergyEfficiency Ratio (SEER). The higher the SEER, the greater the air conditioner’sefficiency.

3. Which air filters are compatible?

You can’t regularlychange your air filters if you don’t know which ones to have on hand.

4.  What brands do youoffer and which one is right for me?
