Is It Time For Your AC Installation, Baton Rouge?

For many people, AC systems aren’t an appliance that requires a lot of attention — unless they’re not working. However, your air conditioner will show signs of deterioration long before it stops working altogether, and you can avoid getting stuck without cool air by learning to recognize those signs. It may be time to consider replacing your AC unit if you notice these symptoms of deterioration:

  • The unit is over ten years old
  • R-22 use
  • Abnormally high energy bills
  • Inadequate cooling
  • Strange noises or odors
  • Poor air quality

Your air conditioner loses energy efficiency and becomes less effective as it ages, so it’s important to closely monitor your AC system if it’s over ten years old. If you find that your AC simply isn’t working like it’s supposed to anymore, it’s likely time for an air conditioner replacement.

Choosing Your New Unit

Once you’ve determined that your AC needs to be replaced, it’s time to start looking for a new AC unit to replace it with. A variety of factors go into choosing a new air conditioner, including the size of your home, the design of the system, your preferred performance level and, of course, your budget. Factors like the tonnage or size of your unit can play a significant role in determining the installation cost. Contact us for more details on the premier Baton Rouge AC replacement experts.

Let’s discuss a couple of the most essential product specifications: tonnage and SEER ratings.

AC Size

The size, or tonnage, of your new AC unit, doesn’t refer to the size of the unit. It measures the cooling capacity of the unit or how much cooling power the air conditioner can supply. To determine what size air conditioner you should buy, you’ll need to calculate how much cooling power your home needs to stay cool. A wide range of factors go into the calculation, including but not limited to:

  • Square footage
  • Number of residents
  • Heat-generating appliances
  • Number and type of windows
  • Regional climate
  • Sun exposure
  • Insulation type

When you call Southern Air for an air conditioner installation in Baton Rouge, one of the first things we do is send a technician to calculate the correct air conditioner size for your home based on the above factors and your previous air conditioner’s size. Don’t worry — no homeowner is expected to complete this complicated calculation on their own. Once you know what AC size your home needs, the search for a new unit can begin.

SEER Ratings

Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, or SEER, ratings are essentially used to measure the energy efficiency of an AC unit. Ranging from 13 to 25, with higher numbers equating to higher efficiency, SEER ratings can tell homeowners a lot about the air conditioners they’re considering. Higher energy efficiency means better system performance for less money.

It also means homeowners must pay more upfront for their AC unit because better performance requires better materials and technology — this makes SEER ratings a great indicator of initial investment costs and future energy savings.
