Purchasing a new cooling system for your home can be a nerve racking task. If it’s time to replace an aging or worn out air conditioner we are here to help make the process easier for you.
A cooling system is one of the biggest uses of energy in your home but it doesn’t have to be as costly. An air conditioner’s performance is measured by System Efficiency Ratio (SER™). SER™ is a relatively new standard in the air conditioning and heating industry. It’s an efficiency rating of your installed system, including the effects of the furnace, the ductwork and the construction of your home. To read more information about SER™
Before quoting to replace your existing air conditioner, as an NCI certified contractor we measure the SER™ of your system. The test reveals the ratio of actual cooling delivery compared to the rated amount the equipment produced when the manufacturer tested the equipment. For example, if an air conditioner worked perfectly, it would be rated at a CSER™ of 100%. But if it only delivered half the heating, the CSER would be 50%. In simple terms, a 14 Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) air conditioner could only operate like 7 SEER equipment.
We test your equipment first to determine the problem with your system then we recommend the best solution for you.
Before replacing just the air conditioner we look at your house as a whole because your air conditioner is only one part that affects the SER™. We look at the furnace, the ductwork, and the construction of your home because if any one piece of your system isn’t up to top shape it can affect your SER™, your comfort, and can cost you money.
After analyzing your house and the system we will recommend the best solution for you. It is not uncommon to find the ductwork needs fixing or replacement, the furnace needs to be cleaned or other problems caused by your house. But when these problems are fixed and the right air conditioner installed you will notice the difference in your comfort and your energy bills.
We look at the whole picture to ensure that you receive the best possible comfort system.
