You deserve a comfortably cool summer

Investing in a new air conditioning system for your home can bring several benefits and improvements:

Energy Efficiency: Newer air conditioning systems are often more energy-efficient than older models, leading to lower utility bills and reduced energy consumption.

Enhanced Comfort: A new air conditioning system can provide better and more consistent cooling throughout your home, ensuring a comfortable indoor environment even during hot summer days.

Improved Air Quality: Modern air conditioning systems come with advanced filtration systems that can remove pollutants, allergens, and contaminants from the air, improving indoor air quality and promoting a healthier living environment.

Reliability: Older air conditioning units may be prone to frequent breakdowns and repairs. A new system offers improved reliability and fewer maintenance issues, providing peace of mind and convenience.

Quiet Operation: Newer air conditioning units are designed to operate more quietly, reducing noise levels and enhancing overall comfort in your home.

Environmental Benefits: Energy-efficient air conditioning systems contribute to reducing carbon emissions and environmental impact, making them a more sustainable choice for homeowners.

Increased Home Value: Installing a new air conditioning system can add value to your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers if you decide to sell in the future.

Overall, upgrading to a new air conditioning system can lead to improved comfort, energy savings, better air quality, and peace of mind for homeowners.

the importance of routine maintenance

Routine maintenance is essential for keeping your home cooling system operating efficiently and reliably. Here are some key maintenance tasks you should perform regularly:

Change Air Filters: Replace or clean air filters every 1-3 months to ensure proper airflow and prevent dust and debris buildup, which can reduce system efficiency and indoor air quality.

Clean Condenser Coils: Remove debris, leaves, and dirt from the outdoor condenser unit regularly to maintain optimal heat exchange and airflow.

Inspect and Clean Evaporator Coils: Check evaporator coils for dirt and debris buildup, and clean them as needed to ensure efficient heat transfer and cooling performance.

Check Refrigerant Levels: Monitor refrigerant levels and look for signs of leaks, such as ice buildup on the evaporator coils. Low refrigerant levels can indicate a leak and should be addressed promptly by a professional.

Inspect Ductwork: Check ductwork for leaks, gaps, or damage that could reduce system efficiency. Seal leaks and insulate ducts to improve airflow and energy efficiency.

Test Thermostat: Verify that the thermostat is functioning properly and accurately controlling the temperature. Replace batteries if needed and consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat for better energy management.

Inspect Electrical Components: Check electrical connections, wires, and components for signs of wear, damage, or corrosion. Tighten loose connections and replace faulty parts as necessary to prevent electrical issues.

Clean and Lubricate Moving Parts: Clean and lubricate fan blades, motors, and other moving parts to reduce friction and wear, improving system performance and longevity.

Schedule Professional Maintenance: Schedule annual or bi-annual maintenance by a qualified HVAC technician. Professional maintenance includes comprehensive inspections, cleaning, tuning, and system optimization to ensure peak performance and prevent costly repairs.

By performing these routine maintenance tasks and scheduling professional inspections, you can extend the life of your home cooling system, improve energy efficiency, and enjoy reliable comfort throughout the year.

 
 
 
 
 
 

How much do Cooling Systems Cost

Several factors can influence the price of a home cooling system:

Type of System: The type of cooling system you choose, such as central air conditioning, ductless mini-split systems, or heat pumps, will impact the overall cost. Each type of system has different installation requirements, equipment costs, and efficiency levels.

Size of the System: The size of the cooling system needed to effectively cool your home is a significant factor in pricing. An HVAC professional will conduct a load calculation to determine the appropriate size based on factors like square footage, insulation, windows, and climate.

Efficiency Rating: Higher-efficiency cooling systems typically come with a higher upfront cost but can lead to long-term energy savings. Systems with higher SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings may qualify for rebates or incentives, reducing the overall cost.

Installation Complexity: The complexity of the installation, including ductwork requirements, zoning systems, and any necessary modifications to your home, can affect installation costs. Retrofitting older homes or installing ductwork in new construction can impact pricing.

Brand and Quality: The brand, quality, and features of the cooling system can influence the price. Well-known brands with advanced features, smart technology, and warranties may come at a higher cost but offer enhanced performance and reliability.

Additional Features: Optional features or upgrades, such as programmable thermostats, air purifiers, variable-speed motors, or zoning systems, can add to the overall cost of the cooling system but may provide added comfort and energy savings.

Local Market Conditions: Market factors such as local labor rates, competition among HVAC contractors, demand for cooling systems, and seasonal promotions can impact pricing.

It’s essential to work with a reputable HVAC contractor such as Sims licensed technicians to assess your specific cooling needs, consider these factors, and provide accurate cost estimates for installing a home cooling system tailored to your requirements and budget.

Cooling Systems by Carrier®

Infinity 24VNA6 Cooling System
Infinity® 24VNA6

The Infinity® 26 air conditioner with Greenspeed intelligence takes Carrier’s most advanced technology to the next level. If it looks like next-gen technology, that’s because it is. This energy-efficient AC unit offers enhanced cooling, extra energy efficiency and ultra-quiet comfort where it matters most — in your home. 

Greenspeed intelligence is created by pairing adaptable-speed technology with the Infinity® System Control. The unique, variable-speed compressor of this unit, allows it to literally adapt its output to the needs of the home. With tiny adjustments between 25 and 100% capacity, it gives the home only the amount of cooling necessary. 

This allows the system to operate longer at steadier, lower capacities, which ensures incredible energy efficiency and quiet operation with tighter temperature control than standard systems.

Infinity 24VNA9 cooling system
Infinity® 24VNA9

The Infinity® 19VS is different in a lot of ways. It offers variable-speed compression that can step down in 5 stages to as low as 25% of its capacity. That’s huge from a comfort perspective. The ability to run in lower speeds most of the time makes it quieter and more adept at removing humidity and keeping temperatures even. Plus, those lower speeds are the sweet spot for the unit’s best efficiency levels and for getting the most benefit out of other systems you might have like an air purifier because of more constant air flow through the system.

And, it’s seldom you can upgrade your system a component at a time. Most often, the leap to higher efficiency and better comfort via a communicating system for that home you love can mean you have to deal with the cost of a whole system even though only your AC has called it quits. The Infinity 19VS could change that for you. Your Sims expert can help you determine if it can work with your existing indoor unit so you can upgrade in steps.
