WHAT DO GOOD FURNACES HAVE IN COMMON?

The compressor is the heart of a condensing unit and the best compressor is a SCROLL COMPRESSOR. Scroll Compressors are recognized by the industry as the leader in reliability, efficiency and quiet operation.

Choosing an Air Conditioning System

Selecting an air conditioner for your home is a big decision, and it’s an important investment today. It will also play a key role in your home energy expenses for years to come. When the summer heat is at its worst, you’ll want your family to have the best, most reliable cooling comfort possible.

What do good central air conditioning units have in common?

The best ones are efficient, operating on minimal electricity to hold utility bills down. They provide steady, dependable performance year after year when properly maintained. Good systems are quiet, long-lasting and low in service needs.

Choosing The Right Size

Obviously, an air conditioner that’s too small won’t keep your home sufficiently cool. But what many don’t realize is that an oversized system will cycle (turn on and off) more than necessary, wasting expensive energy and possibly putting undue strain on the compressor.

 LeBlanc Mechanical will determine the optimum size for your home by making a careful study of your cooling requirements. Window dimensions and exposure. Floor space, insulation and local climate. Heat-generating appliances. The direction your home faces. Even the amount of your home’s exterior shaded by tree will influence the size of the Air Conditioner required.

We’ll specify the cooling capacity of the system in either Btu/h (British thermal units of heat removed per hour) or refrigeration tons (one ton being equal to 12,000 Btu/h).

The Most Energy Efficient Air Conditioners  

Much like automobile manufacturers, today’s air conditioner manufacturers are required by law to evaluate and rate their equipment according to its energy efficiency. This rating is known in the industry as a SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. The higher the SEER, the more efficient the equipment.

Most new homes with central air come equipped with a standard builder’s model. However, when replacement becomes necessary, property owners can upgrade their air conditioning by specifying a more energy-efficient system.

The Rheem High Efficiency models, for example, have a SEER of 14.00, among the highest available. It’s significantly higher than today’s standard models, many of which carry SEER’s of around 10.

High SEER models are generally more expensive, but they can easily make up the difference by reducing your home energy bills over the long run.

The compressor is the heart of a condensing unit. On a hot day, it works long and hard. We carry Rheem equipment, which has a highly advanced scroll compressor in every condensing unit we produce. Scroll Compressors are recognized by the industry as the leader in reliability, efficiency and quiet operation.

Other features to look for include louvered steel cabinets that protect the coils from damage and expensive repair bills.

Also, with some condensing units, the fan can be another source of bothersome noise. Rheem units have a grill design that minimizes air restriction for quieter fan operation.
