What to Consider When Purchasing a New Air Conditioning System?
If you’ve made the decision to purchase a new air conditioning unit, consider the following:
Proper Air Conditioning System Sizing
The size of your air conditioning system is extremely important and should be discussed thoroughly with your HVAC company. A cooling system that’s too small won’t cool your Indianapolis home properly, while a system that’s too big will cycle off too quickly. Neither option is a good one, and both will cause your energy bills to spike.
Your HVAC contractor uses a Manual J calculation to determine the cooling loads of your house based on its square footage. This will determine the size of the HVAC system and equipment.
The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating measures how energy efficient an air conditioner is. Air conditioning units manufactured after 2005 are required to have a SEER rating of at least 13 and a 14.5 rating to qualify as an Energy Star system. The higher the SEER rating, the more energy efficient the unit is. For example, switching from air conditioning equipment with an 8 SEER rating to a unit with a 16 rating will save you 50% on your energy bills. Utility rebates may also be available with the purchase of energy-efficient systems.
You’ll pay more upfront for a system with a higher SEER, but you’ll recoup much of that money with lower energy bills.
When we’re talking about the amount of noise a new AC will make, we’re referring to decibel levels. The lower the decibel level, the quieter the air conditioner. An average decibel for an air conditioning system is about 70. A noisy AC may have a decibel level above 80.
If you’re looking for a cooling system that is as quiet as a casual dinner conversation, look for a unit with a decibel system in the 50s or 60s.
Maintenance and Indoor Air Quality
Improving your home’s indoor air quality is beneficial for everyone in your home, especially those with allergies, asthma and other respiratory illnesses. New AC units offer indoor air quality technology that works to improve the air quality through ventilation, air purification and humidity control. A new system can run for extended periods of time on low power to keep air circulating throughout your Indianapolis area home.

How to Tell If You Should Repair or Replace Your AC
Replacing an air conditioning system is a big financial decision. The HVAC experts at B&W will help you determine whether air conditioning repair or replacement is the best option.
Generally, we believe air conditioners should be replaced when they’re more than 15 years. You should consider replacing the system if it’s experienced frequent repairs or breakdowns. If your AC repairs are costing you hundreds of dollars, that’s money better spent on buying a new system. If your unit is more than 10 years old and experiencing any of the following issues, then we recommend replacement.
- Cost of the repair. If the air conditioning repair costs more than is warranted for an older unit, then it’s time to replace your air conditioning equipment.
- Unusual smells. If you smell smoke, turn the system off and call on a heating and cooling technician. This is likely caused by an electrical issue. A musty smell could indicate mold or mildew in the system, which means there’s excess moisture inside.
- Loud noises. Not all noises are serious, but many indicate the system is not functioning properly due to wear and tear over time.
When it’s time to repair or replace your Indianapolis home’s air conditioner, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our heating and cooling experts to schedule an appointment.
