What is the best brand air conditioning system to buy on the market? That’s a great question and one I dont begin to answer without much thought and research. I will say this ” a system is only as good , as the company who installs it.” What does that mean you might ask? Some companies don’t size their systems correctly, and some companies don’t install their systems correctly either. According to Consumer’s Report ” finding a trustworthy contractor is what matters most. ” If a company doesn’t do a load calculation on a home they can’t be sure what size system you need. If they undersize it, you could have serious cooling problems, if they go with the same size that was existing, it may have been wrong from the beginning. Most of the time when contractors build homes they will cut cost any where they can including Hvac. That includes: poor quality work, no sizing , cheaper is better mind set. If a system is oversized you can have humidity problems, and the system will not last as long as it should because of all the short cycling (starting and stopping) , it also is less efficient. Does your car get better gas mileage on the freeway or inner city driving? Freeways of course, that’s what we are after , long , even, heating and cooling cycles with a properly sized system.
So which Brand is best?
First, keep in mind that a quality installation is what really matters most. According to U.S Department of Energy, and Consumer’s Report.
Second, if it’s a home you are renting, contractor grade may not be a bad idea to save on cost, in my opinion , Payne is made by Carrier, and is the best contactor grade equipment you can buy. What else do I consider contractor grade: Goodman, Amana (same thing), Rheem, Ruud, Coleman, Heil, etc., just to name the biggest ones out there.
What’s the Quality Higher End Brands on the market? Carrier, Bryant, Trane, American Standard, Lennox, & York.
These companies have been around for a long time and if you have problems they are more likely to make sure your satisfied than the cheaper contractor grade brands. They have a great reputation and that’s why they have been around as long as they have.

Five Action Steps to Cut Natural Gas and Propane Use
With the recent cold snap hitting Texas, you can take some steps to reduce the amount of energy that you’re using to lower your bill. Here are some suggestions.
Turn down your thermostat to 68 degrees. For every degree you lower your heat in the 60-degree to 70-degree range, you’ll save up to 5 percent on heating costs. Wear warm clothing like a sweater and set your thermostat to 68 degrees or lower during the day and evening, health permitting. Set the thermostat back to 55 degrees or off at night or when leaving home for an extended time, saving 5-20 percent of your heating costs (heat pumps should only be set back 2 degrees to prevent unneeded use of backup strip heating).
Replace or clean furnace filters once a month. Dirty filters restrict airflow and increase energy use. Now is also the time for a furnace “tune-up.” Keeping your furnace clean, lubricated and properly adjusted will reduce energy use, saving up to 5 percent of heating costs.
Reduce hot water temperature. Set your water heater to the “normal” setting or 120-degrees Fahrenheit, unless the owner’s manual for your dishwasher requires a higher setting. Savings are 7-11 percent of water heating costs. Insulate the first 5 feet of pipe coming out of the top of your water heater or the whole length until the pipe goes into the wall if that is less than five feet. Pipe insulation is available from your hardware store.
Seal up the leaks. Caulk leaks around windows and doors. Look for places where you have pipes, vents or electrical conduits that go through the wall, ceiling or floor. Check the bathroom, underneath the kitchen sink, pipes inside a closet, etc. If you find a gap at the point where the pipe or vents goes through the wall, seal it up. Caulk works best on small gaps. Your hardware store should have products to close the larger gaps.
If your a/c and heating system is over 10 years old you most likely have a 10 seer system. By upgrading your home comfort system to a 16 seer would cut your annual cooling cost by 40% – 60%!
More than half of your monthly energy bill is cooling/heating related cost. Why not give your family a gift this year that keeps on giving.
