How to Buy a New Air Conditioning System

When shopping for a new air conditioning system there are a few common mistakes that homeowners make. At Cowboys AC, we are passionate about helping our customers find energy efficient alternatives to their current system. Check out a few of our tips about what to look for in a new AC system.

  • Cooling capacity – One of the most common mistakes that homeowners make is they just run out and find the biggest air conditioning system that they can buy. The thinking behind this is that the bigger the AC unit then the more comfortable their home will be. However, the opposite is normally the case. An air conditioner that is too big for your home will actually reduce the comfort in your home and reduce the efficiency of your home. The San Antonio, TX air conditioning installation pros at Cowboys AC will help you find a great new air conditioner that matches your home’s needs and your budget.
  • Efficiency rating – Air conditioners are usually given a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio rating abbreviated as SEER. The higher this rating is the more efficient the system is. Usually, a SEER rating of 14 is required in order to receive an Energy Star label. The SEER is a measure of how much cooling the unit provides over a season divided by the amount of energy consumed.

If your current air conditioning system is blowing warm air or if it has started to require more frequent repair, call the San Antonio, TX air conditioning installation and replacement professionals at Cowboys AC today.
