AIR CONDITIONING – HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
There are two main factors that influence the price of a new air conditioner – size and seer rating.
The first step in choosing a new air conditioner is having an expert determine what size you need. You don’t want one without sufficient power to cool your home, and getting an air conditioner that’s too big can be more expensive and less comfortable. Air Conditioners are measured in tons, which refers to the amount of heat they can remove from a home in one hour. A one-ton unit, for example, can remove 12,000 British thermal units (BTUs), while a three-ton system will remove 36,000. The larger your house, the more cooling power you’ll need.
The second step is choosing the seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER). This ratio is a measure of an Air Conditioners total cooling output (measured in BTU) during a season, divided by its total electric energy input. The higher the resulting number, the more efficient and cost effective your unit will be.

The Power of Programmable
People are busy these days and setting a thermostat on a daily basis or remembering to turn it off when we leave home is often the last thing on our mind. Running your system when it is not required leads to wasted energy and money. Programmable thermostats have helped many homeowners end their frustration, because these devices can switch your HVAC equipment on and off at specific intervals for your unique schedule.
The latest and greatest thermostats have integrated Wifi into the technology of programmable thermostats. These new devices offer a number of versatile capabilities. For example, if you’re on vacation across the world, you can access your thermostat through any internet connection and change its on/off schedule, which will keep your equipment from running while you’re not home. The same can be accomplished by downloading an app to your smartphone. Simply “call up” your thermostat, make changes, and you’re all set.
