If your air conditioning system is 10 years old or more, it is time to replace it with an energy efficient system which uses all of the latest cooling technology. A new A/C system will cool your home better and with less expense. It will also do a better job of controlling the humidity in the home.
The A/C Contractor in Corona CA can help you decide on the size of the unit your home needs. He will also recommend the seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) rating for your new unit. This is a measure of the energy efficiency of the unit. The minimum SEER rating is 13, but purchase a unit with a higher rating if your contractor considers this to be the best plan.
You should not purchase an A/C unit that is either too big or too small for your home because both will provide poor performance. An A/C Contractor in Corona CA can provide the services of an engineer to analyze your home and the lot it is on to determine the size A/C unit you need. The sizes range from 1.5 to 5 ton systems.
The engineer from the A/C Contractor in Corona CA will make a thorough study of your home. Considerations include:
1. The amount and type of insulation in the walls and the attic. This is a key to determining the units size.
2. The quality of the windows and the capability of preventing the sun from entering at a high temperature.
3. The quality and amount of caulking around the windows and doors.
4. The house should be encapsulated if it does not have a basement.
5. The position the house sets on the lot will be a factor to consider and particularly if it faces west.
6. The number, size and location of shade trees will be important.
7. The color and condition of the roofing will be important.
8. Any opening in the exterior walls of the home need to be caulked or otherwise sealed. This includes proper weather stripping.
9. Review the duct work for size and flow through capability.
Armed with this information, the A/C Contractor in Corona CA can recommend the best A/C for your home. You might consider having a programmable thermostat installed so you can save energy by not using the A/C when you are not at home. The thermostat can be programmed to turn the air on just before you arrive home.
