What to Know When Getting a New AC System

When you see how hot it can get in this area it is easy to understand why you don’t want to try to get through summer without an air conditioner. If you find yourself in need of a new AC installation in Lake Havasu City then we are sure that you want to get the job done quickly before things really heat up.

Getting a new air conditioning system in your house starts with choosing which system you want. Our team is here to help with every step of your system installation. Let’s get started by guiding you through some of the things that you will need to take into account When selecting your next AC.

What to Consider When Choosing Your AC

Here are some of the important things that you will need to consider and decide on when you choose your next air conditioner

SEER and EER Ratings

When you get an AC you are going to want to take into account the available efficiencies. This is going to be determined by its SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) and EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings. These numbers determine how much power your system uses to cool the space on a hot day with a higher number correlating to better efficiency. Make sure to talk to a technician about these ratings and what they mean.

Zone Control Options

Maybe you have some parts of the home that see more sun than others and need more cool air during the day. This is when zone controls come in handy as it sends cooling to areas needed the most and can shift with different cooling requirements.

You can talk to a technician about setting up a zone control system with a central AC. Zone controls can be difficult to add to an existing home so you might consider choosing a ductless system that allows easy zone control through the use of individual air handlers. Ductless systems can help you achieve better comfort for less money.


Another thing that you will need to take into consideration is your ductwork and the condition of it. If you are looking at a ducted system, make sure to check that your ducts are in good condition and proper size.

If you do not have ductwork however you are not without options. A ductless system could be a great fit to provide for your cooling needs. You can even combine the two if you have a situation in which you need to provide comfort for an additional part of the house that ductwork cannot be added.


Another thing to remember is the sizing of your unit. You don’t want an oversized system as it will short cycle, cost more, and leave you uncomfortable. You also don’t want an undersized system as it will have to work extremely hard and barely provide any comfort. Sizing is a somewhat complicated calculation that should be left to a technician in order to ensure that your system is set up the right way the first time around.
