Air conditioning replacement in Hamilton covers several things including determining the right size. Getting a new unit is a big investment. You could be financing or paying up front. Either way it’s important to make sure you’re getting the most for your money.

Here are a few things you need to know about picking the right size.

Finding the right sized air-conditioner is based partially on the square footage of your home. A professional evaluation by one of our team members will look at a number of aspects like the age and size of your house. The number of windows and amount of insulation in the walls are two other factors. The amount of shade your space gets is also important.

Home owners looking for air-conditioning replacement in Hamilton should make a list of any problems they are having. These can include:

  • Issues with the unit not cooling properly.
  • Problems that involve a system that needs to be repaired on a regular basis.
  • An air-conditioner that turns off even when a set temperature is not achieved.

Here’s a few other helpful tips that can get you started.

  • Measuring your rooms is simple. All you need to do is multiply the width by the length and then add together all the rooms that are separated by adjoining doors.
  • You can reduce 10% to the numbers for rooms that are heavily shaded.
  • Increase the capacity by the same number if the room gets a lot of sun.
  • There are additional considerations of more if two people spend a lot of time in a space.
  • You’ll also need to increase the capacity if a unit is being used to cool the kitchen.

The right sized air-conditioner also needs to be efficient. Make sure to look for the Energy Star label on any unit you’re considering. These ACs exceed minimum standards by 20 percent. If you can’t find that label, look for what’s called a SEER number. A rating of 16 or above is considered highly efficient.

Prices aren’t the only factor you should consider when looking for an air conditioning replacement in Hamilton. Getting a good warrantee is another important consideration. Look for one that will last for 5 to 10 years and a contractor with a service guarantee. Keeping your unit in good condition with a maintenance plan will save money in the long run.
