Installing a Central Air Conditioner

Selecting the best unit for your home depends on a few key factors, based on the heat-gain calculation. This will determine the appropriate size of your central air conditioning unit and is based on a number of things, including the amount of insulation in your home, the number of doors, placement of windows, and the overall location of your house. Having a correctly sized unit is crucial as it will provide you with complete and consistent cooling on the hot days when you need it and won’t have to run any longer than necessary, reducing your energy costs. With a range of units to choose from, including the Legacy, Preferred, and Evolution Series Air Conditioners, the experienced technicians at A-1 Heating will take all these factors into consideration when helping you choose the ideal air conditioner for your home.

Another highly important feature, both for your wallet and the environment, is energy efficiency. Different units come with different seasonal energy-efficiency rating (SEER).

Higher ratings indicate greater efficiency, better quality, superior safety features, better sound shields and lower voltage requirements, so they cost less to operate.
