How to Buy an Air Conditioner

An air conditioner can keep your house cool and your utility bills low, but there are things to consider before you order an AC installation in Tampa. Choose a unit with the following features: an air filter, high energy efficiency ratio (EER), measuring tape, adequate British thermal units (BTUs), oscillating louvers, built-in timers, a digital display, touch-pad controls, a remote control, and a warranty.

Determine what type of air conditioner would work best in your living space: a wall, window, portable, or room unit. Select a unit with an EER of 13 or more. Make sure the AC has an air filter; this will reduce allergens. Measure the square footage of your room to determine the needed BTUs. Once your AC installation is complete, perform routine AC maintenance and contact an AC repair company if any problems occur.
