With the way things have developed throughout the years, it is safe to say one of the biggest concerns out there is: How to be cool. Though we cannot help you to find a way to be the coolest among your friends, we definitely can assure you that everything in your house will be as cool as a delicious peppermint-based Cocktail on a Caribbean Island with our AC installation service in Studio City, CA. However, there are a few things you should keep in mind when making the dream of having your own AC system at home.

Single-Unit or Multi-Unit
A Single-Unit Air Conditioner is an easy option to go for if what you’re looking for is practicality and saving money. It’s rather cheaper than the Multi-Unit and it’s much easier to install. You can also move it around if you don’t want to install a whole system in your house. However, one of its disadvantages, is that it can leak heat back into the room when used for long periods of time, as they tend to overheat after a while. On the other hand, Multi-Unit Air Conditioner systems, provide the perfect amount of coolness to your room and it’s more powerful. One of its best features is that it makes less noise, allowing to a more relaxed mood and it makes it easier for you to concentrate on any task you might have at hand; or it will simply make it easier to watch a horror movie without ruining the suspense.

How powerful does it have to be?

If you’re new to the amazingly fresh world of Air Conditioners, you might not know that their power is measured in BTU (British Thermal Units). Now, few systems have an accurate description of their capacity on the packaging, so professional advice would be useful. Nevertheless, for a 400-450 square feet area, a capacity of 10,000 BTU per hour would be perfect. At GLM Heating and Air Conditioning, we’re always happy to help, and we offer our services around the clock. A quick and easy formula you can also use to determine what AC would be right for your room is to multiply the dimensions of the area in feet by 5. E.g: A 10 x 13 x 9 feet room x 5 = 5,850 BTUs.

Any extra features?

Definitely. Although it might have an effect on its price. There are extra features that would make the whole experience a lot easier. A remote control will let you and your family enjoy a nice movie without getting off the couch to graduate the temperature. Or if you know that at dawn temperatures go down, a timer option is perfect. The sleep or night mode will also make your nights better since it reduces its noise by running the fan and the compressor slower than usual.

Should I go green?

While you’re helping the world by reducing your carbon footprint. Green AC systems tend to be pricier and therefore if they need maintenance or repairing it could be more expensive than getting the service for a traditional one.
