No it is not. Bigger is not always better in the HVAC industry. A larger air conditioning system uses more electricity and costs more to purchase, install and upkeep. A properly sized unit will provide the most efficient energy use and most comfort in your home. When buying a home comfort system, selecting the right size is crucial. For instance, an air conditioning system that is too large will cool your home quickly but you still may not feel comfortable. It will satisfy the thermostat before it can remove sufficient moisture from the air. However, a system that is too small just cannot get the job done. We can help determine what size is right for you.
Check filters every two months and replace as needed.
If you have a 15 year old AC System, it could be as little as 6 SEER. Most people set their Thermostat around 78 degrees in the summer to save costs and with a new high efficiency Air Conditioning System you could save as much as 80% of your cooling dollars with the same temperature setting.
A Programmable Thermostat is programmed for when you leave your house and then return home. The Programmable Thermostat turns off the Furnace during the hours you are not home so that energy is not used to keep the house warm while you are at work. The Programmable Thermostat will then turn back on 30 minutes before you come home so your house is at the perfect temperature when you are home. These Programmable Thermostats save up to 15% on your energy bills during the winter and 10% in the summer.
They are not noisy if you install new components in your system. Old units were not built with the quality materials that are used today. Some manufacturers install sound insulators on the compressor as well as a weather guard top that not only reduces noise but increases the life of the unit by not letting debris get into the system.
Common setting is 85 degrees in the summer if you have Air Conditioning and 60 in the winter if you will be gone for a couple of days. These settings will keep most plants alive and will keep pipes from freezing and bursting in the winter.
