Hot flash!

Well . . . News flash is more appropriate.

Thinking about installing an AC unit?

Perhaps it’s time to update your current HVAC system.

Whether your concern is for the productivity of employees or your own personal comfort in your home, here are some things to keep in mind about installing an AC.


When we discuss size we are not referring to the dimensions of the air conditioning unit. We’re talking BTUs (British Thermal Units). Basically, BTUs are the amount of energy required to cool a particular area. The larger the area the more cooling power your AC system needs.

For a quick estimate of the BTUs, you’ll need, check out this handy BTU calculator.

Type of Air Conditioning System

The next step is to decide what type of air conditioning unit will suit your needs. Again, the size of the area plays a role in the type of system you choose.

Different types:

  • Window units: A single AC unit that sits inside a window frame.
  • Split-ductless systems: Consist of partnered indoor and outdoor units. They pump air directly into specific areas you choose. This style of air conditioning is very energy efficient.
  • Central system: This type of system requires the installation of ducts if they are not already present in the home or building. A centralized system includes both heating and air conditioning.

If you’re looking for a recommendation consider the O General AC.

Energy Efficiency

When deciding on a reliable company for installing an AC unit, don’t forget to ask about the energy efficiency ratio (EER) of the suggested unit.

EER measures how well a heating and/or cooling system converts energy into hot or cold air. It is expressed as BTUs per watt. The better air conditioning units have a high EER.

When choosing an AC system make sure it is ENERGY STAR certified. With this rating, you can rest assured you’re purchasing the best quality and efficiency available.


Your new cooling equipment will have a manufacturer’s warranty. The length of the warranty will depend on the manufacturer but should be at least 10 to 15 years. Ask your installation professional what the warranty covers. It should cover the equipment and parts in the machine.

It’s also a good idea to consider an extended warranty. These typically cover the cost of parts, costs for repairs, plus add additional years to the standard warranty.

Maintenance Required After Installing an AC

Your air conditioning repair experts should perform the following maintenance regularly:

  • Evaluate the settings on the thermostat to make sure it’s running efficiently
  • Check electrical connections and tighten when necessary
  • Reduce motor friction by oiling the moving parts
  • Check the condensation drain for blockage and remove materials that may be plugging it
  • Clean the evaporator core and the tubes of the condenser unit
  • It is recommended that air filters are replaced every 90-120 days (Note: this particular maintenance task should be handled by the home or building owner in most cases)

Keeping a regular maintenance schedule will ensure your new air conditioning system lasts. A well-maintained system will last anywhere from 15 to 20 years.
