With regular maintenance and proper care, the air conditioner in your Montgomery, Alabama, home can last for years. However, you’ll eventually need to replace your AC system or upgrade it with add-ons. As technology improves in the HVAC industry, it’s good to know what AC features are important to homeowners nowadays. Consider the following must-have AC features when looking for your next air conditioner.
Many air conditioners use a lot less energy today than similar units did in the past. The seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) is a rating system used to identify the efficiency of an AC unit. The higher the SEER number, the more efficient the AC system. Systems with a SEER rating of 15 or higher are the best choice. Look for those marked with an Energy Star label, as they operate more efficiently than those without this symbol.
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
The quality of the air you breathe is just as important as keeping indoor temperatures cool when it’s hot outside. An indoor air quality add-on will help to keep your air supply fresh and clean every day. Our professional service technicians can administer an IAQ test and offer you solutions for your home. An IAQ add-on can help to alleviate allergies, remove asthma triggers and manage humidity levels.
Save money and energy when you use a programmable smart thermostat. It’s an easy yet high-tech way to remotely manage and control your home’s AC system. Smart thermostats are enabled with Wi-Fi.
