Before hiring a trustworthy HVAC contractor to install an air conditioner in your home, you need the right system. Otherwise, you risk dealing with high energy bills, more breakdowns and an AC that doesn’t last its full life cycle. When shopping for a new AC for your Punta Gorda Isles home, keep these considerations in mind:

Budget

Prior to starting your search, take some time to review your budget and determine how much you can spend. While it’s tempting to opt for the cheapest ACsystem, it might not be the smartest choice. Remember that the pricier systems usually have greater energy efficiency, making them cheaper to operate. Spending more money now can save you lots later.

Sizing

Without purchasing an AC system that’s properly sized for your property, you run the risk of straining the unit and paying higher energy bills. A professional HVAC contractor can assess your home’s cooling needs and determine which one of Trane’s air conditioning systems will maximize comfort at a minimal cost. Also inquire about the SEER rating, and look for the Energy Star stamp of approval.

Warranty

When you purchase a new AC system, make sure you receive a warranty with it. This protects you in case the AC system malfunctions. Make sure you understand what’s needed to keep the warranty valid, which usually includes performing regularly scheduled maintenance on the system. Most warranties also require that you hire a professional HVAC contractor to perform the installation.
