If you are looking for a replacement, Modern Air Solutions in Bensalem, PA is here to help. The first step choosing the best new system for your home and family is to figure out what you are looking for. Below you will find some aspects of cooling systems you may want to consider. Figure out which of these are a priority. Then talk to a professional from Modern Air Solutions to learn about your options.

Comfort

In most cases, comfort is the first priority. Most homeowners reason for getting a cooling system is to be more comfortable when it gets hot outside. However, there is more to comfort than just the temperature of the air. Humidity, air flow, and pollutants can also affect your family’s comfort.

If you have noticed any comfort issues with your current system, be sure to let your Modern Air Solutions technician know. Common issues include uneven heating, allergens, and low or high humidity. Modern Air Solutions offers a variety of solutions for your home. When your family is comfortable, they can be happier and ready to take on the day.

Efficiency

Choosing a high-efficiency cooling system comes with a variety of benefits. High-efficiency cooling systems save energy, can help lower your utility bills, and help extend the life of your system. Efficiency is also typically a high priority on homeowner’s lists. However, there are other aspects to consider. High-efficiency systems typically cost more initially. Yet, they save you more than a standard efficiency system in the long run.

HVAC efficiency is expressed as SEER or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. The higher the number, the more efficient the system is. Talk to a Modern Air Solutions technician to learn which SEER number is appropriate for your Bensalem home.

Technology

HVAC technology has come a long way since your previous system was installed. There are many systems that have made controlling the air conditions in your home easier and more convenient than ever before. You can split your home into sections and control each one separately with a home zoning system. You can also ask Modern Air Solutions to install a smart thermostat that you can control remotely or program a routine for your cooling system to follow. These are just two of the most popular features. You can learn more by talking to your technician or by browsing the Modern Air Solutions website.

Size

Choosing the right size system for your home is very important. If your system is too small, it will run constantly. Then the parts will wear out faster and you may end up needing more repairs. On the other hand, a system that is too large will start up and turn off more often and also wear out the parts. Talk to a Modern Air Solutions technician about how often you use your system, if you have noticed uneven heating or if any of your family members have any special needs or preferences. Doing so will help them determine the appropriate system size for your home.

Household Factors

Finally, another aspect that should definitely be household factors that may affect which systems you are able to choose. For instance, you should figure out if any of the ductwork needs to be modified or replaced. Where your outdoor unit is placed is also important. A system that is too close to your home could be lacking proper airflow and is difficult to provide maintenance too. If your system is in direct sunlight, it can also risk overheating. Ask a Modern Air Solutions technician to help you figure out what household factors apply to your home and HVAC system.
