ORLANDO, FL, May 12, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- As it heats up outside, you will be reminded that your air conditioning unit just barely made it through last year's hot summer months and the resulting outrageous energy bills. To avoid dealing with that again this year, American Air & Heat recommends that you consider shopping for a new HVAC system now.
According to the Florida AC repair experts, the very first thing you should look for when hiring your HVAC contractor is licensing and reputation. Make sure that they are licensed in the state of Florida. Also look into the company and make sure they have good reputation. Ask friends and neighbors if they can make a recommendation. Once you feel comfortable that you have found a company that is reputable and experienced, make an appointment for a consultation. Your professional air conditioning installer should be able to knowledgeably discuss your options and answer any questions you may have.
There are several questions that you should ask when considering the purchase of an air conditioning system. Ask for the Service Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) on any equipment that you are considering. By law, new air conditioning systems must have SEER rating of 13 or higher. The system that you choose should have a rating higher than the minimum standard. Keep in mind that to get the maximum efficiency represented by the SEER rating, you must replace the entire system, which includes both the outside condenser unit and the inside coil and blower unit.
Also ask about the placement of the interior and exterior units. They should be placed for ease of maintenance. Last but not least, discuss your warranty options and if the the AC company offers a maintenance plan.
"Deciding on a new HVAC system can be a daunting process, but if you know that you are dealing with a professional, you will be more comfortable," says Matt Boni, President of American Air & Heat. "The representative from the HVAC installation company should spend quite awhile going through your home, taking measurements, inspecting existing duct work and evaluating your needs."
Purchasing a new energy-efficient HVAC system will lower your heating and cooling costs as well as improve your home's environment and increase the value of your home. To set up a consultation visit before the weather gets too hot, go to http://americanairandheat.net/.
