We’ve created a helpful guide outlining the things you should consider when installing an air conditioning unit in your home. From deciding on the size of the unit you need, through to understanding the square footage and layout of your home, there’s a lot to consider…

How to choose the best Air Conditioning Unit for your home

There’s plenty to think about when it comes to choosing the best air conditioning unit for your home, including price and energy efficiency, as well as the part of the country you live.

All of these factors will have an impact on the right air conditioning unit for your needs.

What type of heating system do you currently have in your property?

Before deciding on an Air Conditioning system that meets your requirements, you will need to find out what type of heating system you have in your property.

For example, if you have a forced heating system, installing an air conditioning system should be a quick and easy process. However, if you have a baseboard heater or a boiler, installation can be a little more complex.

But that’s not to say that it’s impossible, there are a number of air conditioning installation options for homes that do not already have air ducts.

Where will your Air Conditioning system be installed?

When it comes to the installation of your new air conditioning system, it’s important that you think about the best location for your new unit. This is because it will have a huge impact on how well your AC unit performs.

For example, a unit that is installed facing direct sunlight or close to plants and trees, will not perform as well as a unit that has been installed away from direct sources of light. This is because, natural sources of light that shine directly onto your unit prevent air conditioning units from performing to optimum standard.
