Do’s & Don’ts when Looking for a New A/C Unit for Summer


Understand what you need

This goes beyond “I want to keep my home comfortable”, several factors need to be considered. Making sure you know the size of the space that you need to regulate is the biggest thing to keep in mind. 

Research Online

A new A/C is an investment in your home and well-being. It is important to familiarize yourself with the topic so you can make an informed decision.

Work with Professionals

An HVAC professional can guide you through the process of choosing the correct A/C unit for your home. As experts in the field, they can also explain what options will work best for your space and needs.

Did you know that when working with an HVAC company, most of them have a 5-year parts warranty and a 7-year compressor warranty?


Impulse Buy

When it comes to an A/C unit, you don’t want to rush into buying a unit from a home store. An impulse buy will just cause more headaches and costs down the line.

Focus on Price

Pricing can be daunting when thinking about a whole-house cooling system. When you work with a professional HVAC company, ask about payment options.  Due to the costs of some units, many offer financing or payment plan options.

Sacrifice on Install

While it may be tempting to cut costs by trying to install the A/C unit yourself, you can damage the unit or your home. Trusting a professional HVAC technician means your installation will be done correctly the first time.
