When air conditioner replacement starts becoming more and more of a reality, it’s crucial to take time and compare what different air conditioners can provide. After all, every homeowner has their own unique comfort needs, so why not make sure that the air conditioner is perfectly tailored to take care of those needs?

1. Reliability

Your air conditioner might just be the largest home equipment purchase you’ll have to make for your home. That’s why it’s critical to take the time to research the wide variety of tested and reliable air conditioners we have available to fit your budget. You’ve got to be able to count on your air conditioner, so make sure you go with a trusted brand like Lennox®.

2. Efficiency

Saving money and being conscious of the environment have taken on a new level of importance, which is why efficiency ratings are referenced so much. Air conditioners with greater energy efficiencies, when properly sized and installed, have the ability to save you money on your energy costs throughout the year. To ensure your system is installed properly, choose a dependable service provider like the pros at Jett's Heating & Air Inc. in McHenry.

3. Quiet operation

You don’t realize how noisy an air conditioner can be until you’ve had the quiet technology that is a part of the most recent systems. Most systems will list their decibel rating, so be sure to check for technologies and features that help keep the sound of your air conditioner at a reasonable level. 

4. Consistency  

Maintaining a comfortable home means having an air conditioner that gives you the comfort you’re looking for on a consistent basis. Providing top comfort not only makes your home more comfortable, but when used in unison with a programmable thermostat you can potentially boost your energy savings.

5. Airflow

Keeping all of the air in your home constantly comfortable means you must have an air conditioner that can keep the well-tempered air flowing throughout your home. This is accomplished by having a system that takes advantage of a variable speed motor, so be sure to take a look at those models to help increase your home’s comfort.
