What to look for in a central air unit

The best air conditioning units are efficient, operating on minimal electricity keeping utility bills lower. Good systems are quiet, long-lasting, and low in service needs. You want your central air to provide steady, dependable performance for years. Selecting a top HVAC manufacturer, like RUUD, and properly maintaining it yourself or with a Carter's HVAC Maintenance contract can ensure high-efficiency performance when you need it most.

How can I be sure my Unit is the right size?

An air conditioner that’s too small won’t keep your home sufficiently cool. But an oversized system will cycle (turn on and off) more than needed, wasting expensive energy and possibly putting a strain on the air conditioner's compressor. Schedule a FREE whole-house air conditioning evaluation with one of Carter's expert HVAC Technicians to find the best model for your home and budget. We'll specify the cooling capacity of the system you need in either Btu/h (British thermal units of heat removed per hour) or refrigeration tons (one ton being equal to 12,000 Btu/h).

Which air conditioners are energy efficient?

Today’s air conditioner manufacturers are required by law to evaluate and rate their equipment according to its energy efficiency. This rating is known in the HVAC industry as a SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating). The higher the SEER, the more efficient the air conditioning equipment. A SEER of 18.00 is among the highest available, standard air conditioning units can be as low as 13 SEER. That five-point swing can make a large difference in your home energy bills in the long run.

Are you still using the standard builder’s model that was installed during the home's construction? You should upgrade your air conditioning unit with a more energy-efficient system. 

Are some air conditioners built better than others?

The heart of an air condensing unit is the compressor. Quality manufacturers, like RUUD, install the highly advanced scroll compressor in their condensing units. Scroll Compressors are recognized by the industry as a leader in reliability, efficiency, and quiet operation. Grill designs that minimize air restriction offer quieter fan operation. Quality steel cabinets will protect the coils from damage and expensive repair bills.
