Energy-Efficient and Affordable Air Conditioner Installation

Air conditioner replacement and cooling system installation experts

There are several options to choose from when searching for a new air conditioning unit. From wall and window units to ductless heat pumps — also known as mini-splits — and central air conditioning systems, today’s air conditioning options deliver the best in comfort and energy savings. There may also be incentives and rebates available from your local utility and municipality for investing in Energy Star certified HVAC systems.

Why should you consider replacing your home’s old air conditioning unit?

It may be time to evaluate the condition of your air conditioning unit if you find that your home just isn’t cool enough during the hot summer months. We understand that your energy bill is one of your highest household expenses, which is why we always ensure you get the most value for every dollar your spend.

Ensure the air you breathe is refreshingly cool, clean, and comfortable

If it’s time to replace your AC unit, an Energy Star certified system may be the right choice for you. It has a higher Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) and Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) ratings, plus it uses less energy than conventional models. If you are leaning towards a central air conditioner, it’s a good idea to consider updating your old furnace at the same time. Here’s why:
  • A central air conditioner requires a blower motor, which is usually fitted in your furnace.
  • If your furnace is more than 15 years old and operating with a high-efficiency AC unit, your system will not operate at peak performance.
  • Mismatched units can result in a premature breakdown, the possibility of no warranty, and a decreased lifecycle.
  • Replacing both units at once will also minimize installation costs.
Not sure if you require a new air conditioning unit? Our expert team can help you make the right decision. We will inspect your system to determine if it is functioning properly and whether or not you require repairs or replacement parts. We also offer regular maintenance services to ensure your new system is in good working order year-round.

Tips for choosing a new, high-efficiency air conditioning system

If your air conditioner is more than 10 years old, its efficiency has declined significantly, which may be causing high utility bills. Our skilled, experienced, and knowledgeable HVAC technicians are happy to share valuable tips on how to select the right air conditioner for your home.

 

  • Size: With air conditioning contributing to almost 20 percent of your annual energy bill, it is extremely important to select the right unit. An air conditioner that is too small will struggle to cool a room while one that is too big will cool too quickly to remove the moisture and make the air uncomfortably dry. In addition to your home’s square footage, Energy Star recommends paying attention to the height of your ceilings, size of your windows and doors, number of occupants, and the amount of sunlight your home receives.
  • SEER and EER: Every AC unit has a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) and an Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER). The higher the number, the more efficient the unit, and the lower your cooling costs will be. All Ruud air conditioners are Energy Star-rated for their efficiency and eco-friendly features. Some models with efficiencies of up to 20 SEER /13 EER are among the best in the industry. Studies also show that the Ruud Ultra Series provides efficiencies up to 54 percent higher than typical air conditioning designs, and have an expected lifetime savings of $3,720.
  • Quiet operation: Noise is not an issue with Ruud heating and cooling solutions. By streamlining airflow and reducing vibration, the latest variable-speed model runs quieter than other systems available on the market.
  • Smart controls: Air conditioners with Intelligent Cooling features (smart controls) allow you to control and adjust temperatures from your smartphone for optimal efficiency. Leveraging the latest in Cloud and Smart Home technology, the Ruud EcoNet App puts control at your fingertips delivering a new level of efficiency, convenience, and comfort.
