When selecting an air conditioning unit for your living space or building, you have a range of options available on the market, from central air conditioners to floor-mounted and ductless mini-split systems. To help you decide which unit to choose, a residential and commercial HVAC expert shares four essential features to look for in this post.
Humidity control. To effectively cool your home, your air conditioner needs to draw heat and humidity out of the indoor air. Units with a variable-speed compressor have superior humidity control and can operate at lower speeds for extended periods. This means they spend a longer time extracting unwanted humidity from the air than models with a single-stage or two-stage compressor.
Energy savings. Air conditioning units are assessed by their seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER). A higher rating means the system is more energy-efficient than other systems with lower ratings, so make sure not to forget to check the SEER when shopping for a brand-new air conditioner.
Sound performance. Air conditioners equipped with variable and multi-stage compressors operate more quietly than units with single-stage compressors. In fact, some models incorporate sound blankets to further reduce noise levels when the system is up and running. If your unit is placed near the porch or a bedroom window, sound performance is often an essential feature to take into consideration.
Comfort features. Different cooling products affect indoor comfort and temperature consistency differently. For instance, a two-stage model offers low- and high-stage cooling as the environment demands and therefore can provide improved comfort levels.
