Essential Air Conditioner Features to Look For

Choosing a top-quality air conditioning system for your home isn’t as easy as it seems, but this is mainly due to the wide range of selections available on the market. It’s important to consider unique factors that may affect performance, comfort and possible expenditures for the foreseeable future. A commercial HVAC expert shares some of the most essential features to look for here:

  • An energy-saver switch. An air conditioner’s fan usually runs on a constant basis — even when the compressor, which ensures that the refrigerant switches to gas or liquid as needed, is turned off. However, with the energy-saving setting, the fan turns off once the thermostat switches off the compressor, allowing you to save on your energy bills.

  • The ‘check filter’ light. This feature is a visual reminder to change the air filter. A filthy, dust-caked filter won’t be able to trap allergens and other airborne contaminants, which renders the occupants susceptible to health problems and increases your AC maintenance costs.

  • Sleep mode. This feature will increase the temperature setting slightly in the room during the nighttime hours to prevent the homeowners from getting chilled.

  • Remote control. A handy device that allows you to change the temperature from anywhere in the room, a remote control is excellent for conveniently raising the temperature in the middle of the night when you don’t want to leave the comfort of your bed.

  • Ventilation or exhaust. This critical feature brings in fresh, cool air from the outdoors and circulates it throughout the living space.

  • A manufacturer’s warranty. This is a guarantee that your equipment will be covered in case a component turns out to be defective. Most manufacturers offer five to 10 years of coverage.
