Hotter temperatures are right around the corner. If you don’t have a properly working air conditioning system, then you still have time to get one installed to beat the heat. If you are like most people, then you are not an expert in air conditioning, which makes it harder to determine which air conditioner is right for your household. Fortunately, our team at Steve’s Plumbing and Heating are experts, and we want to help you choose the best cooling solution for your home.

The Size of Your Home

Air conditioners have maximum capacities. To ensure that you are not overworking your air conditioning system, you have to purchase an air conditioner that can cool your home. If you aren’t familiar with determining load capacities, it’s in your best interest to employ a professional, as our team at Steve’s Plumbing and Heating. We can help you determine the best air conditioning unit to cool your home.

Energy Efficiency

Another important consideration to make about your air conditioner is its use of energy. As you may know, not all energy efficient appliances are created equal. With the goal of having your air conditioning system work as efficiently as possible, if you don’t know much about industry standards, you can get that information from our team. With information about the latest technologies, we can help you choose a system that will reduce the work required for your air conditioning system, allowing you to save money over time.


Your warranty should also be a factor when determining what air conditioning system to purchase. Since your air conditioning unit is on the outside of your home, it’s exposed to the elements. At any given time, something can damage the system and prevent it from working properly. Additionally, the system could be defective and not work as it should. All of these problems are easily remedied by having a warranty. With a warranty in place, you have the peace of mind knowing that you don't have to cover the cost of repairs for years. If a warranty costs extra, you should weigh the cost against the benefits of having that safety net.

At Steve’s Plumbing and Heating, our goal is to help you be comfortable in your home during the summer and the winter. If you are having trouble with your air conditioning system, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We can help you determine whether your unit needs a repair or it needs to be replaced.
