Check Out All the New AC Features That Are Out This Summer

June 25, 2020 | Blog

If you’ve been thinking about replacing your old air conditioner, you may be amazed at all the options you’ll have when you choose a new AC or an entire HVAC system. As manufacturers focus increasingly on efficiency, technology has been vastly improved to get the most cooling while consuming the least amount of energy. You’ll be amazed at the new AC features that help accomplish this.

What to Look for When Shopping for a New AC Unit

Variable Stage Compressor

If you have an older HVAC system, the AC probably runs with a single-stage compressor. You know — it’s that big blast of air you feel when the AC comes on. With variable speed technology, the compressor may run continuously, but usually at a much lower capacity. In the summer, they might run all or most of the day at 25% or 30%. They create a steady stream of cool air that feels more comfortable than that big blast. Variable speed units also dehumidify the home better because they are running continuously. This technology saves you money because it doesn’t turn on and off as much as single-stage or dual-stage compressors.

Smart Connectivity

Most modern, efficient air conditioners require smart connectivity to work efficiently. The homeowner need not adjust or calibrate the AC, since the cooling system with smart technology connects and facilitates communication among all the components. This helps the AC operate at peak efficiency.


Whenever you’re shopping for a new air conditioner, pay attention to the SEER, or Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. Old systems usually had a SEER of 10; these days, it’s all about SEER 20 and above. Whenever possible, go for a high SEER unit to save money and increase comfort in your home. One of the best ways to shop is to check out the government’s Energy Star ratings on various products.

Quiet Operation

Pay attention to noise levels on your new AC unit. The better units are quieter these days.
