Temperatures over 100 degrees make a reliable, effective air conditioning system a sheer necessity.
With all the makes and models on the market, how do you know which is right for your home or business?
We are proud to carry top brand and quality equipment at affordable prices. RAS can help you understand your options beyond cost and size. There are different warranty offers, lifespans and energy efficiency ratings to factor in when selecting the right HVAC system for you.
Energy Efficient AC Systems
SEERS stands for “Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio” and is simply the ratio of the cooling output over a typical season of use divided by the energy it consumed in watt-hours.A unit with a higher SEERS rating is more efficient. Ductless units and other efficient AC systems can rate 20 or more. Brands with high SEER ratings do not necessarily cost more or last longer.
Longevity and Warranties
Properly installed and maintained, the average lifespan of an air conditioner is 12 to 15 years. Routine servicing can prevent problems and increase a unit’s life of use.
Most top AC brands offer ‘general parts warranties’ of 10+ years. Some brands are esteemed for fewer repair issues. While others are known to outperform. What do you want the most from your HVAC system? Discuss with RAS your expectations and values to find the best equipment for your cooling needs.
