Choosing the Best New Air Conditioner

Buying a new air conditioner can be overwhelming. Whether you’re buying your first new system or you’ve upgraded a couple times, it can be an intimidating process—there are so many options to choose from! You will be using your new air conditioner for years to come, so you want to make sure that you pick the right AC for your home.

Luckily, John Nugent & Sons happen to be experts when it comes to choosing air conditioners. We offer many brand name air conditioners, and we can help you choose the best one for your home. Whether you’re located in McLean, Arlington, Vienna, or anywhere in Northern Virginia, we can supply you with the equipment you need and install it for you. We suggest you consider these factors when selecting your new air conditioner.

Air Conditioner Size

Home air conditioners come in a variety of different sizes. It is essential that you get the correct size air conditioner for your home otherwise you will be wasting energy and money. For example, a new air conditioner that is too small won’t be able to effectively cool your entire home and it will over-exert itself trying to do so.

An air conditioner that’s too big will have the opposite problem, it will cool your home too quickly and won’t be able to dehumidify properly, leaving you with clammy air and frozen coils. The experts at John Nugent & Sons can go over all your options with you to help you choose from our great selection of air conditioner units.

Air Conditioner Brand

As you know, not all brands produce the same quality of equipment. Some brands have a reputation for making long-lasting units and others do not. You can go online to look at reviews from different brands and see what other consumers say about a particular manufacturer. It’s also useful to look at warranty information, as not all brands offer the same warranty. This way you’ll know how long you are covered if you have a major breakdown. John Nugent & Sons carries several brand names for you to choose from so you can feel confident you are getting a high quality unit.

Air Conditioner’s Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency is a buzzword for many homeowners today as it can also mean extra money in your pocket! The first thing to do is look for the ENERGY STAR seal on your air conditioner. This means the unit is certified by the government as being energy-efficient. Next you can look for the EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio) and/or SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) rating which will tell you how efficiently the unit operates. Basically, the higher the numbers, the more efficient the unit. We can help you choose a new air conditioner with a good EER and/or SEER rating so you can get the most for your money.
