Selecting an air conditioner for your home is a big decision. It's an important investment today. It will play a key role in your home energy expenses for years to come. And when the summer heat is at its worst, you'll want your family to have the best, most reliable cooling comfort possible. Here are a few things to consider.What do good central air units have in common?
The best ones are efficient, operating on minimal electricity to hold utility bills down. They provide steady, dependable performance year after year when properly maintained. Good systems are quiet, long-lasting and low in service needs.
Much like automobile manufacturers, today's air conditioner manufacturers are required by law to evaluate and rate their equipment according to its energy efficiency. This rating is known in the industry as a SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the equipment.
Most new homes with central air come equipped with a standard builder's model. However, when replacement becomes necessary, property owners can upgrade their air conditioning by specifying a more energy-efficient system.
High SEER models are generally more expensive, but can easily make up the difference by reducing your home energy bills over the long run.
The compressor is the heart of a condensing unit. On a hot day, it works long and hard. Ruud installs the highly advanced scroll compressor in every Ruud condensing unit we produce. Scroll Compressors are recognized by the industry as the leader in reliability, efficiency and quiet operation.
Other features to look for include louvered steel cabinets that protect the coils from damage and expensive repair bills.
Also, with some condensing units, the fan can be another source of bothersome noise. Ruud units have a grill design that minimizes air restriction for quieter fan operation.
