Tips on buying an air conditioning system

Buying an Air Conditioning System

Central air conditioning is available either as packaged units (combined condensor and blower) or as split systems (remote condensing unit with indoor blower coil or furnace). As with heating, sizing is the most critical element of unit selection. Other important considerations are efficiency, noise levels, type of refrigerant, and staging.

Cooling system efficiency is measured by the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER). Use the SEER number to gauge the relative energy cost of cooling among different combinations of condensers and coils. The minimum allowable SEER rating is 13. We recommend a minimum rating of at least 14, and have systems available as high as 20.5.

Sound levels of condensing units are measured in decibels (dB). Equipment rated at or below 70 dB is considered very quiet. Equipment above 80 dB is very noisy. The scale is logarithmic, so an 80 dB unit is ten times as loud as a 70 dB unit. Selection of quiet equipment, as well as careful placement away from noise sensitive areas, will avoid neighbor’s complaints.

Central air conditioning equipment is now widely available with R410A refrigerant. R22 is being phased out as an ozone depleting chemical. The new refrigerant is ozone friendly and performs very well in equipment designed for its use.

Condensing units are available with either single or two stage compressors. Two stage equipment is very useful in zonally controlled applications to prevent individual zones from overcooling during partial demand.

Nate certified

Congratulations to our employees Nick Reno and Joe Bloomer for successfully completing their NATE certification on 12/20/2009.  They are the latest addition to our growing list of employees that have taken this rigorous training and testing program.

What is NATE?

NATE stands for North American Technician Excellence, and it’s the only nationwide certification program accepted by the entire HVACR industry — contractors, manufacturers, and the Air Conditioning Contractors of America. NATE is a voluntary certification program designed to ensure that qualifying technicians have a core set of competencies and can be trusted by the consumers who hire them. NATE is the culmination of several years worth of work by ACCA and other industry organizations to establish one single, nationwide certification.

Why is NATE certification by our employees important to you?

The NATE certification is rigorous and voluntary. There are other third-party certification programs out there, but they have suspiciously high “pass” rates. NATE has the lowest pass rate and is the only nationwide certification program that is endorsed by the HVACR industry across all levels. Technicians, contractors, manufacturers, utilities, educators, wholesalers and leading industry trade associations support NATE. And industry organizations such as ACCA have helped develop the tests to ensure they maintain high professional standards.
