New Air Conditioning Technology
In recent years, there have been improvements in AC technology which are making these systems more efficient and durable than ever before. These changes include:
- Compressors are becoming more efficient and fan blades are made in shapes that are more efficient.
- New refrigerants do not contain chlorine, which is present in older units, and which depletes the ozone layer.
- Today’s units give you more efficient air conditioning – in fact, new models are significantly more efficient in their operation than older units.
- In today’s systems, refrigerant is circulated in a closed loop from the evaporator to the condenser. This captures heat effectively from the house and carries it outdoors, to the fan that will blow it away.
- Newer refrigerants allow their compressors to run much more quietly than compressors that use other refrigerants.
- New units also have diagnostic ports that allow air conditioning technicians to quickly diagnose any problems electronically.
Selecting the Right Size for a New Air Conditioning System
Regardless of how efficient your air conditioning system is, it must be sized properly to use the minimum amount of energy in cooling a maximum area. The main concern is a proper balance between the evaporator and the condenser. The evaporator cools and dehumidifies indoor air before the air handler circulates it through the ductwork of your house.
Before our technicians recommend a specific unit size, we will take into account your house layout, sun exposure, air leakage and the square footage. Using an undersized system will force your condenser to work too hard, and no one wants to get too large of a system if it’s not totally necessary.
