Size Matters!

Determining the proper size air conditioner for your home is a complex calculation which takes into account dozens of factors, from the cubic footage of the space and the size, number, and placement of the registers, to the siting of the house and the amount of insulation it has. A unit that is too small for your home wll run constantly, use an enormous amount of energy, and work itself to death in short order trying to keep you cool. A unit which is too big will cool your house very quickly but be unable to properly dehumidify the air, leaving your home cold and clammy. When comparing prices for air conditioners, always make sure that you are comparing units of equal capacity and efficiency (SEER) ratings, and be sure to check the consumer quality ratings for the unit. A brand which seems dirt cheap now may turn into a huge expense not too far down the road.

 

Air Conditioning

I've chosen four lines from the Rheem catalog of products that I think make a lot of sense in this part of the country. They're all designed and built for quality and reliability, and offer a pretty broad range of energy efficiency. You may want to give serious consideration to the more efficient systems. While they may appear to be more expensive to purchase, they are also more likely to be eligible for substantial government rebates because the government is trying to get America to use our energy more efficiently. Combined with the extraordinary monthly savings that come from state-of-the-art technologies like staged compressors and the capability to control variable-speed fans, you'll get your money back rather quickly, with many years of savings after that. Staged compressors deliver the muscle to keep your home cool on the hottest days, yet can sip energy on Low Cool during those warm, muggy nights. Variable-speed fans hold the air over the air conditioning coils just long enough to give you the perfect humidity. Your home is always cool and comfortable, never damp and clammy. All the work is orchestrated by Rheem's sophisticated, ultra-reliable built-in control system, and requires no fiddling. Just set it and forget it. Regardless of which system you choose, I think you'll be pleased by my prices. Call anytime for a free quote.
