Most homes in Arizona have central air because it’s the most effective and efficient way to cool your home. Isley’s looks at several factors to help you find the right units for your home. Be sure to also ask us which units are eligible for the federal tax credit.

Our professional technicians will help you choose the right A/C unit for your home (or business).

Factors to help you find the right units for your home

Ducts that are the wrong size can result in rooms that are too cold, too hot and too noisy. Air that doesn’t flow easily through ducts can cause the A/C unit to work harder, which can make the air noisier, which can drown out conversations and increase energy bills.

The U.S. EPA certifies products that meet standards for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants. Isley’s carries only heating and cooling systems that are certified ENERGY STAR efficient.

Energy efficiency ratio measures how well your cooling system will run when outdoor temperatures are at a specific level, rather than during a season.

Air-conditioner efficiency is measured in units called seasonal energy efficiency ratio set by the EPA’s ENERGY STAR program. Look for a SEER rating of 14 or higher; the higher the SEER, the lower your energy expenses during a season.

The total volume of your business’ or home’s space includes not only square footage, but also floor-to-ceiling volume. A 2,000-square-foot-home with 9-foot ceilings has less volume and less air to cool than a 2,000-square-foot home with 14-foot ceilings.

Programmable and smart thermostats can help your home cool more efficiently when you are not at home. Wi-Fi connected thermostats let you monitor and control your home’s temperature from your smart device.

Air conditioning is measured in British thermal units (Btu) per hour, or in tons. So, a typical 2,000-square-foot home might have a 5-ton unit that cools 60,000 Btu/hour.

Other things that help Isley’s determine which A/C unit is best for you include number of occupants and heat-generating appliances and equipment that might be inside your home or business.

Split System vs Packaged Air-Conditioning and Heating Units

Isley’s installs and services both packaged A/C units and split-system air conditioners. What’s the difference?

A packaged A/C unit has one outdoor metal cabinet that houses the evaporator coil, condenser with blowing fan and compressor. It can be rooftop mounted and comes in straight-cool, gas/electric and heat-pump models. Additionally, the Trane packaged units that Isley’s recommends will heat your home, so a separate furnace isn’t necessary.

A split system has part of the unit outside and part of the unit inside, typically in an attic or closet. The outside metal cabinet typically sits on the ground level and contains the condenser and compressor; the indoor component might be located in an attic or utility closet and contains the evaporator coil.
