How to Choose an Air Conditioner

The most common forced air cooling system in this region.  This system ties in nicely with any forced air gas furnace but can also be connected to an air handler to retro fit houses without one.  There are many different styles of air conditioning making it suitable for just about any application, from single room to large commercial building.

Daikin offers efficient and dependable compressors for worry – free comfort;

The compressor is considered the heart of any air conditioning system.  It creates the cooling power, and working together with our energy – efficient 5 millimeter condensing coil design, Daikin air conditioners will provide years of reliable cooling comfort, even in the hottest weather.  This Daikin air conditioner utilizes a scroll compressor that has fewer moving parts and results in lower energy use compared to units with reciprocating compressors.  A factory – installed filter drier protects the compressor from moisture or dirt that could enter the system during service or installation, and you have the satisfaction of knowing your Daikin system uses R-410A refrigerant.

When considering the different options available in a new central Air Conditioning system, there are two main options to consider; the SEER Rating and the type of refrigerant used to operate the unit.

Multi-Zone Multi-Split Ductless AC

SEER Rating

The SEER rating (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) is a similar type of rating system as is used to measure the energy efficiency of a Furnace.  Typical SEER ratings range between 13-18 SEER for new air conditioners.  The higher the SEER rating, the greater the energy efficiency.  Currently, the Government mandates a minimum of a 13 SEER rating to increase energy efficiency nationwide for air conditioners.

Many older homes have central Air Conditioning systems that are operating at a SEER rating of 6 below.  By replacing an older central Air Conditioning system with a new high efficiency system, homeowners can reduce energy bills by up to 50% during the summer months.

Refrigerant Type

There are two main types of refrigerants, R-22 and R-410. In 1990, the United States passed the Clean Air Act that required the phasing out of all chlorine-based refrigerants.  R-22, a chlorine-based refrigerant, has been standard in residential air conditioners for many years.  Since it is not an environmentally friendly refrigerant, it will be phased out over the next decade.

By 2020, the manufacturing of R-22 will be completely banned.  In the meantime, the cost to maintain an R-22 air conditioner will go up dramatically.  A similar situation occurred with air conditioners in cars. R-12 refrigerant was the standard used in cars at the time but was phased out starting in 1990.  Seven years later, the cost of R-12 refrigerant had increased 650%.

Although it costs more initially, air conditioners that use R-410 refrigerant will be much less expensive to maintain over the life of the air conditioner and are more environmentally friendly.  Additionally, since most air conditioners last between 15-20 years, you will not have to worry about it becoming obsolete in the future.

Choosing a new central Air Conditioning system can seem challenging, remember to always compare systems with the same options and make sure that you are working with a reputable company.
