Purchasing a High-Efficiency Central A/C
The first thing to consider when you start researching your new central air conditioner purchase in Calgary is energy efficiency. While energy-efficient models can seem more expensive initially, an high-efficiency central A/C can contribute to longterm savings on your monthly energy bills. All central air conditioner models in Canada have a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) sticker from 13-20+. The average Calgary consumer will find that an A/C unit up to 18 SEER offers a good degree of energy-efficiency.
Efficiency is more than just the SEER number. You need the right sized air conditioner for your space. If the unit is too large, the A/C can’t remove the humidity properly, and you will notice that your home feels damp. If the unit is too small, your A/C will constantly run which will cost you more each month and wear down the cooling system faster. Contact a licensed HVAC contractor to assess what A/C unit you need to cool your home efficiently.
There are almost always deals in Calgary to make buying your new high-efficiency air conditioner more affordable.
