A Perfect Match

Replacing your Central Air Conditioning System


If the Components Don't Properly Match, Everybody Loses

     Imagine that you've purchased a brand new luxury car, and you're looking forward to a smooth, comfortable ride... but when you pick it up at the showroom you find out it has old, worn-out tires. Oh, sure it'll run fine... but as you shimmy down the highway, listening to the roar of the tires and wondering how long until one blows out, how do you feel... worried?... like you've been "taken for a ride"?

     You could find yourself facing the same frustration if the components of your air-conditioning or heat pump system are not properly matched.

     Your air-conditioning or head pump system consists of two parts: an indoor (coil) unit and an outdoor (condensing) unit. These two parts are specifically designed to work together as a coordinated "team" to provide top performance and maximum efficiency and comfort. So if you install a new high efficiency outdoor unit, but don't include a new, equally efficient and properly matched indoor unit, the results could be uncomfortable, frustrating, and expensive.

From Disappointment to Worst-Case Scenario

     At best, when your air-conditioning or heat pump components aren't properly matched you'll be sacrificing comfort. The system will still work but it won't perform up to the promised efficiency.

     This will also cost you money, because the system won't operate at peak efficiency. At worst, when the components aren't properly matched, it could create undue stress on the system, resulting in premature failure.

Properly Matched Systems Mean Maximum Satisfaction

     When you consider the steep costs of repairing or replacing these units, installing a properly matched system the first time around makes good sense. Of course, replacing the indoor unit will add cost to the installation, but it will mean greater comfort and energy savings in the long run as you make up for the increased initial expense in lower operating costs.

Ensuring Efficiency

     The efficiency of a central air conditioner is rated by its Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER). This SEER rating is technically defined as the cooling output provided by the unit during its normal annual usage period divided by its total energy consumption. More simply, the SEER rating is similar to the miles-per-gallon rating for automobiles. The more energy efficient the air conditioning equipment is, the higher the SEER rating - because less electricity is needed to cool your home.

     Since 1992, the minimum efficiency standard for central air conditioners and heat pumps has been set at 10 SEER. That's about to change. Beginning in January 2006, the minimum efficiency level for all new central air conditioners manufactured must be at least 13 SEER.
