Top 5 Tips For Purchasing an Air Conditioning Unit


An air conditioning unit helps you and your family stay comfortable all year round. However, many families feel hesitant to buy one. The upfront and long-term costs of an air conditioning unit are one of the first setbacks. Many people are also unsure of where to purchase the right one.

While those are valid concerns, an air conditioner should be treated like a long-term investment for you and your family, and for your home comfort! Here are some tips that will guide you through your decision:

Maintain a safe temperature

It would be great if everyone in your family agreed on the same temperature setting for your air conditioning unit. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. The debate on this matter is usually between keeping cool or keeping the bills low. Based on consumer reports from 2017, Energy Star recommends that you set the air conditioner to 78⁰ F during the day when you’re home and 82 ⁰ F for all other times.

Consider how much energy an air conditioning unit uses

Before you worry about the long-term costs associated with your potential purchase, rest assured that not all air conditioners use a tonne of energy. CLARITY by ClimateCare is proud to carry the most energy efficient units so that families can stay comfortable and save money at the same time!
