What Is The Best Brand And Price For New Ac Unit?
My House Was Flipped About A Year Before I Bought It And Someone Had Stolen The Ac Unit Before It Was Fixed Up. It Currently Had A Old 2 Ton Best Up Unit That Does Not Cool The House.... At All.
I Don'T Know Anything About These Units And I Would Have To Get One Financed Through My Power Company. Is There Any Type Of Unit I Should Look For? Is There A General Price Range I Should Consider Acceptable For A 2 1/2 Or 3 Ton Unit?
All air central conditioning has been upgraded over the past few years to meet minimum energy conservation requirements. However, the more expensive the unit, the better the energy "seer" rating you should expect it to have. As a rule of thumb, if the unit has an "energy star" it is going to give you excellent cooling for the amount of energy it uses. Also, switching from 2 tons to 2 1/2 is usually practical, but you may require additional duct work to go on up to a 3 ton unit. There has to be adequate output and intake ducts for the tonnage you intend to use, or you just waste your money powering a bigger unit and it will freeze up in humid, hot weather. Since your old air conditioner was stolen, you may still have the coil in your furnace by the blower. It would be best to go ahead and have them replace the copper line and coil...otherwise you may get a nice new AC unit installed only to develop a leak somewhere that is not covered by warranty. Ask them to "throw in" a furnace tune up while they are doing the job...they will probably do that to get the contract.....if they say they only do that in the Fall, have them give you a written statement on the air conditioner contract that they will return in the Fall to do it at no charge....that's what I had them do.
If you have a split level home, the upstairs usually stays hotter than the rest of the house. On one house we ended up putting in a separate unit to cool the upstairs with its own thermostat.....otherwise, the downstairs was freezing cold and the upstairs was just barely tolerable.
Be sure to ask them if there are any rebates, tax credits, or electric company credits for any of the units they are selling. Sometimes you can get a better seer unit than you could have otherwise afforded, simply because of the rebates and energy credits. My power company gave us an energy credit for upgrading the air, we got a tax credit for it being energy star, and the unit had a factory rebate. We saved almost a thousand dollars....some installers will quote a good price on their installation and keep the factory rebate for themselves....kind of like some car dealers do....and the buyer never knows it.
For an average central air install today, where duct work is already present, it is between 2 and 3 thousand dollars. For energy star equipment expect somewhere around 5 thousand.
How Many Btus Are Needed For Multiple Room Air Conditioning?
Living In A Ranch Home, I Am Looking To Put An A/C Unit In My Living Room. This Room Connects To The Dining Room And There Is A Hallway And A Semi Enclosed Kitchen.
When Figuring The Btu Needed, Should I Calculate The Hallway And Kitchen Even Though They Aren'T In Direct Line Of Sight Of Where The A/C Will Be Installed? The Living Room And Dining Room Is Approximately 420 Sq Feet. Including The Hallway And Kitchen The Sq Ft Is Over 650.
The Difference Between The Footage Is Between 10K And 15K Btu Units. I Am Worried I Will Either Over Or Under Size This If I Am Wrong.
You might as well go for the 15k unit. You don't need to worry about oversizing it when you are talking that small of an area and that little of a difference in btus. The square footage is really only a thumb rule and isn't very accurate on determining true heat load anyways. You also don't need to worry about oversizing so much because you are using a window unit and will have enough heat gain from other areas that you won't need to worry about shorty cycling and not dehumidifying. If you go to small by not including the kitchen you could have a hard time maintaining your desired temperature especially if someone is cooking.
