Air Conditioners

What to consider when selecting an Air Condtioner

When selecting an air conditioner there are a few things to consider. One of them being SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) which is the measure of efficiency by which the cooling process of air conditioners and heat pumps is rated. The higher the SEER number, the greater the efficiency—and therefore the greater your energy savings. Today, Canadian regulatory bodies require all new products to have a 13.0 SEER rating or better. Proper Air Conditioner sizing is very important.  Obviously, an air conditioner that’s too small won’t keep your home sufficiently cool. But what many don’t realize is that an over sized system will cycle (turn on and off) more than necessary, wasting expensive energy and possibly putting undue strain on the compressor.
Ritemp Heating & Cooling can 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 trees.
