New ac units come in all shapes and sizes, and it can be confusing deciding which one is best for your home or business. That’s where AAA Cooling comes in. They are the leading professional air conditioning installers in the Scottsdale area, and are the right people to steer you through the air conditioning maze.
Clearly with the high summer temperatures that Scottsdale experiences every year, just about every home and business needs air conditioning. But every home and business doesn’t need the same system.
Your main decision is between a central air unit and individual room air conditioners. Most people opt for the latter solution as being more flexible and easier to control; they are of course more affordable than central air systems.
Air conditioning systems have two main functions. They don’t just cool the air, they also reduce the humidity in the air. If you have a unit that is too small for space in your run, you are never going to be able to lower the temperature to a satisfactory level. If on the other hand the unit is too large, the air will be cooled down very quickly, and the unit’s thermostat will shut it down. However, this will leave the air feeling damp, as the unit won’t have had time to dry the air. This will leave the room feeling cold, but damp and humid.
The placing of units in larger spaces is highly important. If you have an odd shaped room, perhaps an “L” or a “T”, then AAA Cooling are likely to recommend that you install two units. If you have just one unit in rooms which aren’t square or oblong, there’s a danger that you simply produce hot spots and cold spots, instead of even coolness throughout the space.
An important consideration for most homeowners is not simply the initial cost of a unit, but the ongoing running cost. With the cost of energy escalating year on year, and a healthy consciousness of the importance of conserving our natural resources wisely, choosing an energy efficient unit makes sense. Although the upfront cost is higher, running costs will be much lower, and the payback period is generally pretty short.
Another consideration is the way the unit is controlled. Modern units have a number of settings, including fan speed and the actual temperature. Obviously the higher the fan speed, the more quickly cold air is moved into the room space, but this is usually at the sacrifice of quiet operation. Modern units tend to much quieter overall than older models, so you may not be so concerned about this aspect.
Positioning of controls is important – they need to be easy to reach, and easy to understand too. Remote control is becoming a standard feature, including being able to control the unit from anywhere that has a phone signal, using wifi.
Although AAA has a great maintenance system, you’ll probably want to do the minor job of cleaning filters yourself. Check to make sure that this task is really easy, especially if you are an older person who might have flexibility issues in your hands. Most modern units are simplicity itself when it comes to cleaning and changing filters, so this isn’t likely to be a problem.
Although it’s possible to install a unit yourself, it’s far better to have this work done by a professional. The team at AAA Cooling are standing by to advise you on your cooling requirements, the options available to you, and of course, they can arrange remarkably easy finance.
Choosing new ac units is a real pleasure when you have professionals to help, and they will add value as well as comfort to your home.
