New A/C Installation
If you’re thinking about installing or replacing a central air conditioner, you’re probably aware that this is one of the most significant home improvements you can make in terms of comfort. On a hot, humid summer day, few amenities add to quality of life more than central air conditioning.
Air conditioning is also one of the most expensive improvements you’re likely to make, so it pays to do your homework and choose wisely.
Don't be fooled by other HVAC Companies that state they are experts and know how to calculate how much tonnage a home will need just by the square footage of your home,
This size of an Air Conditioning Unit is based up many factors, such as composition of the building, which way it faces, the number of windows, and the amount of insulation that is in your home.
In order to identify the exact tonnage for your home, you may require a Heat and Load Calculation which we provide at ACTL Group.
What is a SEER?
SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. The SEER measures air conditioning and heat pump cooling efficiency, which is calculated by the cooling output for a typical cooling season divided by the total electric energy input during the same time frame. A SEER rating is a maximum efficiency rating, similar to the miles per gallon for your car. Your car might get 28 miles per gallon on the highway, but if you’re stuck in city traffic it could be lower. The rating was most recently updated in 2015. The old minimum SEER rating requirement on a new AC installation before 2015 was 13 SEER, but the new Florida SEER rating requirements increased the minimum to 14 SEER.
