Finding the Right System For You

As our central air conditioner installers know, the best equipment isn’t the largest or most powerful; it’s the one that’s best suited for the unique demands and specifications of your home.

The following chart gives you an idea of how central air conditioner size (in tons) and output (in BTU/hr) might match up with a home’s square footage, independent of other determining factors.
