How to Choose the Best Air Conditioner for Your Home

Posted on: August 19, 2014

With so many brands to choose from, how do you decide on the best unit for your home’s air conditioning installation?  Is Goodman AC the best choice for your home, or should you buy one from American Standard, or some other leading manufacturer? Ultimately, the choice will depend not only on the quality of the product, but on many factors specific to you and your home.  Luckily, at Midway of Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and Tampa, we only carry the highest rated brands for both energy efficiency and dependability. When you buy from us, you can rest assured that whichever model you choose, you can count on it to keep you cool when you need it.

Which air conditioning installation is best for you?

When choosing the best air conditioner for your Clearwater, St. Petersburg, or Tampa home, it’s important that you look at your needs.  This is because manufacturers such as Goodman AC provide systems to fit every house size and consumer’s budget.  So before choosing a manufacturer, you should ask yourself:

  • What am I looking to pay upfront?  The upfront cost is how much you are willing to pay for your air conditioner.  Goodman AC units that provide higher energy efficiency and quiet operation will cost more than their less efficient models.  However, these high-end models can greatly reduce your monthly energy bills, which can save you more money over time.  In addition, if quiet function is paramount, then you may want to go with a more expensive model that includes the added perks, instead of only the bare essentials.
  • How large is my home?  The power of your system is directly proportional to the air volume in your home.  A small condo will often require a smaller unit than a much larger residence.  And having the proper sized air conditioner installed is more important than it may sound.  Too low and your AC will struggle to keep your home cool, causing it to be constantly running  and costing you much more in electricity each month.  Too big and the unit will struggle to regulate the temperature, causing it to turn on and off frequently, and also costing you on utilities.

If you need an air conditioner installation in the Clearwater, St. Petersburg, or Tampa area, there’s no need to worry about answering these questions alone.  At Midway, we will walk you through the entire decision making process to ensure you receive the exact system for your cooling and heating needs.  So whether you choose a model by Goodman AC, American Standard, Carrier, or any other brands we install, you can rest assured you made the right choice.
