Two Major Things To Consider When Investing In A New Air Conditioner
There are two things to consider when thinking about air conditioners: SIZE and EFFICIENCY. When it comes to air conditioners, bigger doesn’t mean better. Choosing the right air conditioner for your home requires taking many factors into consideration including, square footage, window size and direction, as well as insulation values in your walls and attic.
An air conditioner doesn’t just cool your home, it also removes humidity. While an over-sized unit will cool your home quickly, it will not have time to effectively remove humidity, leaving you feeling cold and clammy.
Choosing an efficient model can be a tough decision. The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is the air conditioner efficiency rating. Like your furnace’s AFUE percentage rating, a higher SEER equals higher efficiency. Minimum code in Canada is now 13 SEER and ENERGY STAR® is 14 SEER but some central air conditioners can reach as high as 26 SEER.
While we pride ourselves as being leaders in efficiency, we also believe in practicality. That’s why we believe the initial higher costs associated with high-SEER units is unwarranted for our climate. We know the decision is a balance between efficiency and budget and we will offer solutions that make sense for you and your family. Contact us today about your new air conditioner.

Energy ratings to consider
Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER):
The measure of the amount of cooling produced divided by the amount of energy used. The higher the SEER Rating, the more comfort you’ll generally get from each energy dollar invested.
