If you’re noticing that your system needs frequent AC repairs or is running less efficiently, talk to your local Sonoma County HVAC technicians about the best air conditioning installation options.

Which brand of air conditioner is the best?

When choosing which of the best AC units to upgrade your home with, homeowners have many factors to consider, such as cost, lifespan, warranty, energy efficiency ratings, noise levels, and size. Our company has been in the industry for over 20 years and is an authorized dealer of Bryant and Daikin. The most energy-efficient air conditioners carry a SEER (seasonal energy efficiency rating) of 20-26 but it might not always be the best option. These are often more expensive but save in energy costs. They’re a top factor when it comes to choosing an AC system.  Bryant is a well-known and reliable manufacturer of air conditioning units with various affordably priced, quality products to choose from.  They are considered one of the best for performance and quality.

Which AC is best for home use?

When deciding what AC system to install, your HVAC technician will take note of your home’s square footage, the sun exposure during the day, amount of people living in the space, ceiling height, number of windows, location, and more. Depending on your living space, a central air conditioning unit (split or packaged system), a window air conditioner, a portable air conditioner, or a ductless system might be best. For example, for homes where it is hot most of the year, a central air conditioning system is preferred. In contrast, for homes without ductwork, a ductless mini-split AC system is a better option for cost-effectiveness and efficiency.
