Air Conditioning Installation West Palm Beach

Are you living in southern Florida without air conditioning? Are you dreading facing the impending summer? Fans can only do so much to combat the Florida heat, so if you have been thinking about an AC installation, it may be time to call a professional.

Why Do I Keep Seeing BTU And What Does It Mean?

A “BTU” is the amount of heat it takes to raise the temperature of one pound of water by one-degree Fahrenheit, and it stands for “British Thermal Unit.” The BTU is no longer commonly used in the UK, but is used to standardize heating and cooling capacity. When you are in the market for an air conditioning installation, you need to know how many BTUs of cooling you need.

What Is Tonnage And How Does It Relate To The BTUs Of Various AC Units?

Twelve thousand BTUs per hour (12,000 BTU/hr) corresponds to 1 ton of cooling. Because Florida is in a particular climate zone, a two-ton unit will most efficiently cool about a thousand square feet, depending on other factors like the direction the home faces and the prevailing air circulation around the home.

Should I Just Get The Biggest Unit Possible?

A home that faces south or west needs more cooling than one that faces north or east. If you have single pane windows, poor insulation or leaky ducts, then your unit will not cool as efficiently. Your AC installation professional can advise on the tonnage you will need based on those factors. Getting the biggest unit will cause it to cycle on and off, and consume more power than a unit that would be on more consistently.

How Do I Tell The Efficiency Of My Unit?

Air conditioners have a number that is called the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) and it is listed as a whole number. All units are required to have a SEER of at least 13. There are some units that have ratings up to a 21, but most range from 13 to 18.
