If your air conditioning unit is more than 10 years old or has a SEER rating of 10 or less in Beaumont, TX, you need to consider a new AC installation. Thermacon Service Company, Inc. has expert technicians who will help you choose a unit that will save money.
The first item to consider in a new AC installation is the size of the unit. Begin by having an energy audit performed to determine your house's HVAC needs. The technician may recommend you add more insulation or new insulation and increase insulation around windows among other things. These are wise investments that will save money on the utility bill and pay for themselves over time. A unit that is too large for the house will waste energy. A unit that is too small will run almost constantly to cool the house.
For the AC installation, choose a unit with the highest SEER rating you can afford. The higher the rating is, the more energy efficient the unit is. Ratings can go as high as 24. Some units accept power from both the grid and solar panels. These units report saving customers up to 60% on the utility bill.
As well as a high SEER rating for your AC installation, look for an SEER sticker rating on the unit; this is the Energy Star sticker. The unit is highly efficient and will save money and energy. You cannot go wrong with this unit. Investing in one of these units will pay you back over time.
Having the ducting system inspected, cleaned or repaired should be part of the AC installation. To save money and allow the system to deliver clean air to the house, this should be done on an annual basis. Thermacon Service Company, Inc. in Beaumont, TX, can install, maintain, and repair the ac system in your home.
