What to Look for When Buying an AC Unit

Energy Efficiency

Look for units with a high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) rating. The higher the SEER rating, the more energy-efficient the unit is, which translates to lower electricity bills.

Cooling Capacity

Consider the size of the room or area you want to cool. AC units are rated in British Thermal Units (BTUs), and the required BTU will depend on the size of the space.

Noise Level

Some units can be quite noisy, which might be a problem if you’re installing them in a bedroom or study. Check the decibel rating before making a purchase.

Additional Features

Modern AC units come with various features like smart controls, air purifiers, and dehumidifiers. While these add to the cost, they can enhance your overall experience.
