1. Buy New Air Conditioner in Las Vegas - the basics
Picking appropriate SEER values is usually a one of the major factors that you have to consider when buying a new air conditioner.
SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, and is an objective means of evaluating the efficiency of an air conditioner. The higher the SEER value - the more efficient a unit is. Federal regulations require a minimum SEER value of 13 SEER on all newly installed air conditioners, which is still significantly more efficient than the unit you already have (which is likely an old 7 or 10 SEER model). When buying a new air conditioner people often ask us: “What SEER value would you recommend?”. While there are a bunch of factors that you need to consider we usually recommend no more than a 14 SEER air conditioner, but if you have bigger house, want more comfort or longer warranty then we recommend 16-18 SEER, and only for some relatively rare occasions we can recommend 20 SEER systems.
2. Choosing the proper size when Buying a New AC Unit
Determining and choosing the proper size when buying a new air conditioner depends on a lot of factors. While it is possible for some experienced technicians to size an AC unit without doing a formal calculation, most contractors should do it anyway. In the process of buying a new air conditioner, you will certainly come across a term known as “tonnage.” This, however, is not a reference to actual weight, in this case a ton is a measurement of an air conditioners cooling power, and can be thought of as being kind of like the engine size of your car.
The size of your air conditioner will depend on multiple factors, including your location, insulation, square footage, and various other factors.
3. Affordable, fair prices when Purchasing a New Air Conditioner
There are dozens of brands out there, each with their own marketing strategy, with its own range of benefits. American Standard, York, Amana and Trane are easily can be considered as one of the top Air Conditioner brands in 2019. Typically, a new air conditioner (installed) is right around $5,000 and around $6,000 – $7,000 if you have the furnace replaced at the same time. This is just a ballpark, of course, but it will at least give you an idea of what to expect when you want to buy new air conditioner. This should include all fees, taxes, a thermostat, a high-quality air filter, and installation by experienced technicians. Keep in mind that fair price when buying your new air conditioner can vary, as with most things - you get what you pay for, most likely there are companies out there that will do it for cheaper, but the tradeoff may be the quality of the installation and parts used.
