A swamp cooler isn’t always enough to keep your home comfortably cool in the summer, in which case refrigerated air conditioning may be the best solution for you.
Here are a few things to consider when converting to refrigerated air from your local AC repair expert, Mechanical Technologies.
Your current system as well as your heating and cooling needs will have to be evaluated if you want to get an accurate estimate of the cost to install a new AC system. An HVAC professional will need to take a look at your existing ductwork to determine if it can handle the capacity of a central air conditioning system. The same goes for the electrical system, which often needs to be upgraded in order to support the load required for proper air conditioner operation.
In most cases, the heating system will need to be upgraded as well to support the energy needs of the new cooling system. Beware of contractors who base the estimate of an air conditioning service solely on the size of your house.
Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratings (SEER) are used to rate the energy efficiency of air conditioning systems. Choose a system with higher SEER ratings for greater energy savings and a reduced carbon footprint.
