WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN AN AIR CONDITIONER
comfort-features-icon
Comfort
Features

Different central air conditioner products affect your comfort and the consistency of indoor temperature. A single-stage air conditioner is the most basic model, with airflow on or off. A two-stage model offers high- and low-stage cooling as conditions require and therefore can provide enhanced comfort levels. Variable-speed air conditioners include premium comfort features such as multiple stages for more precise temperature control and more consistent comfort.

humidity-control-icon
Humidity
Control

Reducing the humidity levels within your home can dramatically improve your comfort. To help cool your home, your AC unit pulls heat and humidity out of indoor air, using your system’s blower to circulate the air. Models with a variable-speed compressor provide excellent humidity control because they can operate at lower speeds for longer times. So, they spend more time pulling humidity out of the air than models with a two-stage or single-stage compressor.

sound-performance-icon
Sound
Performance

Air conditioners with variable and multi-stage compressors provide ultra-quiet operation compared to models with single-stage compressors. In addition, models that include sound blankets and our Silencer System II™ design can further reduce noise levels. If your AC unit is located near a bedroom window or patio, for example, sound performance might be an important feature to consider.

energy-savings-icon
Energy
Savings

Air conditioners are rated by their seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER). The SEER rating of an air conditioner is much like miles per gallon (MPG) for a car: The higher the SEER rating, the more energy efficient the system.

Overall Efficiency <p>Efficiency within a model group will tend to vary by the size (capacity) of the unit. Some products, like furnaces, may also be affected by installation orientation (horizontal, upflow, or downflow) or even by the nozzle used in installation, as is the case with boilers and oil furnaces. The efficiency of an air conditioner or heat pump can even be affected by the furnace or fan coil it relies on inside the home to move air. Products that fall into the “Select sizes ENERGY STAR<sup>®</sup> qualified” category include within their model group some non-qualified units due to either size or potential installation factors.</p> info
