Do You Need An Air Conditioner Installation in Plano, TX
As it gets older your air conditioner will become less efficient and will drive up your energy costs. It will also get noisier and will produce less cool air.
A New Install Is Cheaper to Run
A new air conditioner installation will be cheaper to run, often up to 20 percent more efficient than your old model, which adds up to a lot of dollars over the summer. There are several reasons for the improved efficiency in Plano, Texas. One is that the evaporator coils now have larger surface areas, allowing them to absorb greater amounts of heat and moisture when warm air passes over them. The result is that your home is cooled quicker, and moisture is removed faster from the air.
Thermal expansion valves have improved allowing for better control of coolant flow through the evaporator coils. With the aid of sensors, they can better determine the temperature difference between the inside and outside of your home, adjusting the coolant flow through the coils to optimum effect. This reduces the likelihood that frost, and ice will start to form on the coils.
It Is Greener
Using less energy reduces not only your energy costs but also your carbon footprint. Each new air conditioner installation will have an EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio) and SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) value. Without going into too much detail, the larger these numbers are the more efficient the unit is, so the cheaper it is to run.
An older model is likely to be using a coolant such as Freon which is known to damage the ozone layer. Freon is no longer produced in America, and you may have noticed that supplies are harder and more expensive to source. A new air conditioner installation uses coolants that not only avoid damaging the ozone layer but have better cooling properties, further reducing running costs.
Air Quality Will Improve
A new air conditioner installation will be better shut off from the outside world. This reduces the amount of dirt particles and pollen that enter your home. This greatly benefits those sufferers of chronic respiratory conditions such as asthma and bronchitis. We at One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating of Dallas suggest that if you suffer from respiratory illness, you may want to consider having a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filter fitted. This will further improve air quality in your home, by removing nearly all dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, and other airborne particles from your home.
Another bonus from better air conditioner installation methods is that less cold air will escape from your home, combined with improved insulation this will further drive down running costs.
Many people will turn off their air conditioners at night to get a better night’s sleep, so a new quieter air conditioner will improve sleep quality. Many more of us have or are working from home, and a new unit offers a quieter environment in which to work and study
You Have Greater Flexibility and Control
The more bells and whistles your new unit has the more expensive it will be, but you will gain greater flexibility and control over the conditioning levels in your home. Wireless technology will allow you to set levels on thermostats and humidity controls using your smartphone. How much flexibility you want is down to you and your budget.
Get the Right-Sized Unit
You probably have not changed your air conditioner since you moved into your home. If you have had extensions added to your home, your old unit may no longer be able to cope. But if you have added extra insulation in your loft or brought new windows, the energy efficiency of your home has improved as less cool or warm can exit your home. So, it is important to select the right-sized air conditioner for your needs.
Choosing too big a unit is a mistake. People think that a larger-sized unit will cool their home quicker. It will but at the expense of not removing enough humidity from the air. A larger unit will also be more expensive to run. There are many factors to consider when picking a new unit and to the inexperienced can seem a daunting task. But do not worry, help is at hand from One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating of Dallas. New air conditioner installation is our specialty.
