Efficient Air Conditioners

Efficient Air Conditioners available in Calgary and Chestermere

Expert Mechanical can help you make a wise decision when purchasing a new air conditioner. Today’s air conditioners offer exceptional energy efficiency, especially when compared to units 10 years or older. They also offer many sizes, options and feature different warranty coverage. You should expect the lifespan of an air conditioner to be at least 10 years or longer if properly serviced and maintained.

A new air conditioner will provide

Regulated cooling - designed to distribute even cold-air temperature and control humidity

Environment benefit - can significantly reduce energy required for efficient operation when compared to older units

Cost benefits - less energy needed means less money spent on your utility bill during hot months

Improved air quality - designed with effective filters which can reduce airborne particles (dust, bacteria, allergens, etc) in addition to limiting humidity and reducing mold and mildew

Choose the Best Air Conditioner for Needs and Budget

We will go through the advantages and disadvantages of various air conditioners and explain the following:

 
  • Energy efficiency SEER Rating
  • Warranty for both parts and labour
  • Required BTU needed for your home’s specifications
  • Noise levels (higher priced units are quieter)
  • Available air conditioner options (filter-indicator lights, timers, energy-saver or fan-only switch, etc)
 

Depending on the installation requirements, we always try and show you 3-4 different air conditioning systems from affordable basic models to more expensive units with higher warranties and efficiencies.

For many people price will dictate the choice, however, you can imagine that top of the line models have some outstanding options and cool features as well as higher energy saving efficiencies. We’ll try and help you understand what system works best for your needs and budget.

Choosing the best air conditioner also requires that the unit is sized accordingly to the cooling requirements of your home. Buying an over-sized or under-sized air conditioner will cost more to operate, need to be maintained or serviced more frequently and shorten the lifespan of your air conditioner.

Understanding SEER Rating

Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) is a measurement rating used to measure the efficiency of air conditioners. Basically, the mathematical formula used is the ratio of cooling in BTU (British thermal unit) to the energy consumed in watt-hours.

SEER is easier explained by use of an example. If an air conditioner has a rating of 10 SEER (typical for air conditioners 10 years or older) and is compared to an air conditioner rated at 16 SEER, the higher SEER unit could reasonably reduce your energy bill up to 50%. A significant saving!

Why then don’t most people choose the highest SEER AC unit? Of course price is most often the determining factor. You need to consider how long it takes to offset the extra cost of a higher SEER air conditioner compared to a lower priced, lower SEER model. In some cases the extra cost savings make it a worthwhile choice.

Recommended Air Conditioners

We can install any model of air conditioner, however, we highly recommend Goodman air conditioners. Goodman lives up to its name in a big way, with time-tested energy-efficient technology, highly-durable materials and excellent manufacturing.

Next Generation Copeland Scroll™ Two-Stage Compressor – Designed with fewer moving parts and consuming less energy compared to reciprocating compressors, the compressor uses chlorine-free R-410A refrigerant and will provide years of reliable cooling comfort. The compressor provides enhanced performance with revolutionary two-step capacity design. At lower speed the unit runs longer to help reduce indoor humidity and supports consistent indoor temperature control. The higher speed provides full cooling capacity on the hottest days of year. Combined, both speeds help deliver steady and consistent cooling compared to single-speed compressors.

ComfortNet™ Communicating System Compatible – Continuously monitors the system’s operating performance and allows remote control of system as an option.

Copeland ComfortAlert™ Diagnostics – Advanced diagnostics constantly monitor your air conditioner system, reducing failures and pinpointing trouble spots for a fast fix.
